Mezco Announces Second Series of "Cinema of Fear" Figures

Mezco is planning on releasing a second set of "Cinema of Fear" figures. The first set consisted of miniature, Lego-like versions of the trio of terror: Jason Vorhees, Leatherface, and Freddy Krueger. Now, Mezco has announced that the second series will consist of the same characters, only in different attire. In this series, Jason is wearing his pre-hockey mask Friday the 13th: Part 2 outfit, Leatherface is wearing his suit from the end of the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Mr. Krueger is dressed in his New Nightmare getup. The current release date for this set is May of 2005. I can't wait.

Sequel to "Dawn" Remake Won't Remake "Day of the Dead"

Zack Snyder, director of the highly mediocre Dawn of the Dead remake, announced earlier this week that he will soon start working on a sequel to Dawn. But here's where it gets cryptic: this sequel will not be based on George Romero's original sequel for the original Dawn, and will instead be a stand-alone film. I suppose this is good news… I mean, I'm all for creativity instead of copying someone else's work, so I can't say that I'm against this sequel, but I have do have my doubts as far as the quality of the actual film is concerned, and they were created by the Dawn remake's inability to truly impress me.

"The Ring 2" Teaser

A new teaser for the sequel to 2002's The Ring has arrived on the web (watch it by clicking on the link: http://www.ring2-themovie.com/) I have to be honest…it doesn't look like anything new will be brought to the table with this second outing. It is still, however, way too early to be able to tell for sure whether my opinion on this film will become fact, but judging from the way mainstream horror films have been being made lately, I wouldn't hope for too much.

Anybody familiar with The Attic Expeditions (and if you're not, you should be) can tell you that it's a film loaded with interesting visuals and intriguing editing.

Gore and Loathing in Phoenix V: The Recasting of "One Bloody Night"

Part of a series of essays related to the on-going production of an Arizona-based indie horror film, One Bloody Night.

After the "weekend of hell" when all but the entire cast had quit or been let go, I had come to the conclusion that I would never cast a movie again. I immediately put this lesson to use as other members of the crew stepped up to the plate and took over the second round of casting.(read more...)
