"Wizard of Gore" Remake Premiere Date Set

Heads-up, Herschell Gordon Lewis fans: Jeremy Kasten's remake of Lewis's 1970 Wizard of Gore is set to premiere at the LA Independent Film Festival on Friday June 22nd at 11:59PM. The exact location of the event will be The Majestic Crest Theater at 1262 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. Those who read Classic-Horror.com's interview with Kasten from October 2005 will remember that this project was foremost on his mind at the time. The new Wizard of Gore, starring Crispin Glover, Kip Pardue, Bijou Phillips, and the Suicide Girls, tells the tale of Montag, a magician whose illusions become frighteningly real. Read up on the film at the official website.

"Unholy" Set for September DVD Release

About two years back, there was a whole bunch of buzz about a new horror movie called Unholy. Directed by newcomer Daryl Goldberg and starring Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog) and Nicholas Brendon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), the film dealt with occult Nazi artifacts secretly being held in a small Pennsylvania town. Stills were released in September 2005, followed later that month by the official trailer... and then nothing. Silencio.

Now, finally, there's news. DreadCentral.com is reporting that Starz Entertainment (you may remember them more fondly as Anchor Bay Entertainment, once upon a time) has acquired Unholy and will be putting it on DVD on September 4, 2007. Special features are still to be announced (and, in fact, Starz has yet to officially release anything). For more information on the movie, visit the official website.

Nakata & Ichise Working on "Inhuman" Film

The masterminds behind Ringu will team up for a new horror movie, according to the Hollywood reporter. Hideo Nakata (Dark Water '02) will direct and Taka Ichise (The Grudge) will produce Inhuman for 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises. Inhuman is based on a true Japanese crime story. We'll be covering more on this film as it comes in.

"Cannibal Holocaust" Companion Film Synopsized

cannibalholocaust

Bloody-Disgusting.com has posted the official synopsis for Ruggero Deodato's new Cannibal Holocaust film. To quote:

The film is about Professor Harold Moore, a New York anthropologist traveling to the wild, inhospitable jungles of South America to find out what happened to a documentary film crew shooting a film about cannibal tribes.

Deodato directed the original Cannibal Holocaust, released in 1980. Despite the similarity in plot, this new film is not being described as a remake, but as a "companion."

Death with a Brutal Kick: 10 Sadistic Ways to Die in a Horror Movie

Brutal Feature: Black Sunday 1960

Sometimes, we get contacted to do an article to coincide with the release of a theatrical film or DVD. Most of the time, we don't do it because we either don't have any ideas or there are no good ideas for that particular movie. The PR folks for Universal's recent remake of The Hitcher (coming out on DVD May 1st -- check the cover art at the bottom of the page) had something different, however -- a good idea. They said, "Hey, guys, we have somebody getting yanked apart by two semi trucks in our movie. What about listing off some other brutal and/or sadistic deaths?" I was intrigued, which is often enough to get me to put fingers to keyboard, so here we go.

The list presented below isn't definitive. These aren't necessarily the ten most brutal or sadistic deaths in a horror movie, just the ones we thought were notable. Your mileage may vary. Each entry is accompanied by a screencap that can be accessed by clicking the thumbnail icon below the film title.(read more...)
