NEW MICHAEL MYERS BOOK FROM LOOMIS IN H2

The cover art for the new Dr. Loomis book about Michael Myers in the upcoming H2 has shown up on the internet.  This guy Loomis is something of a one trick pony, it’d seem, in the world of pyschology publication.  Hmmm, cashing in much?  Check it out!

NEW TRANSFER & FEATURES FOR ‘CHILDREN OF THE CORN’ BLU-RAY

Just came across this bit of news over at Shock Till You Drop:

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Children of the Corn, Anchor Bay Entertainment is prepping an all-new special edition of the Stephen King horror film for its Blu-Ray debut. Read on…

Not only will fans see and hear this ’80s shocker classic like never before, this Blu-ray edition contains all the supplements from the previous DiviMax™ DVD, as well as nearly an hour of newly-produced high-definition bonus features, with all-new, never-before-seen interviews with the cast and crew – created exclusively for this release!

Produced by Donald P. Borchers and directed by Fritz Kiersch, Children of the Corn stars ’80s sensations Linda Hamilton (The Terminator) and Peter Horton (“thirtysomething”) as a young couple who find themselves stranded in the isolated community of Gatlin, Nebraska. They soon discover that all of the town’s adults have been slaughtered by a twisted religious cult of children led by the enigmatic Isaac (John Franklin) who worship a mysterious cornfield deity. A deadly race for survival begins –can these adults escape a town where the innocent become zealots and offer blood sacrifices to He Who Walks Behind The Rows?

Special features include:

• Audio commentary with director Fritz Kiersch, producer Terrence Kirby and actors John Franklin & Courtney Gains
• NEW “It Was The Eighties!” (HD) – Linda Hamilton talks about working on the film, offering great behind-the-scenes stories about the cast and crew
• NEW “Stephen King on a Shoestring” (HD) – All-New interview with Producer Donald Borchers.
• NEW “Welcome to Gatlin: The Sights and Sounds of Children of the Corn” (HD) – Interview with Production Designer Craig Stearns and Composer Jonathan Elias
• “Harvesting Horror: The Making of Children of the Corn” (SD)
• Fast Film Facts
• Original theatrical trailer
• Poster & still gallery
• Original storyboard and original title sequence art

Look for it on July 28th – we suspect this release might tie in to this year’s Children of the Corn redo which will air on television later this year.

‘DRAG ME TO HELL’ TRAILER ONLINE!

Posted on 13th March 2009 by aaron in News,Uncategorized - Tags: , , , , , ,

The Trailer for Sam Raimi’s DRAG ME TO HELL has hit the intarwebz.  I suggest you check it out below.  Now…if I can get past Justin “I’m A Mac” Long’s performance (because I hate him in everything ever, even Jeepers Creepers), I might really dig this flick.  Sam and Ivan Raimi wrote it, Sam directed it…  It promises to be great.  We’ll see.

A loan officer (Lohman) ordered to evict an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse, who turns her life into a living hell. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.

Thanks to Joey for the heads up on this one. (Not Joey Chestnut, my biggest fan, but another Joey…”whoa”).

‘…OF THE DEAD’ TRAILER HITS THE WEB

Ok, took a look at the new ...OF THE DEAD trailer over at Fangoria (see below).  What can I say…  this movie looks like it’s going to blow as much as DIARRHEA OF THE DEAD .  Come on Romero.  I love ya, I really do…but…you know…this is starting to get embarrasing.  Check the trailer to see what I mean.  Looks like a Sci-Fi Original.  Damn, I really was hoping for a return to form, some last hurrah, but this thing looks like ass.  DAMN!

WEREWOLVES IN THE LOONY BIN IN TEMPLESMITH’S ‘HOXFORD’

Posted on 8th March 2009 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , , ,

Ben Templesmith, the artist on 30 Days Of Night, is having his comic WELCOME TO HOXFORD brought to the big screen by Chris Columbus’ 1492 production house.  Very little word so far, but the basic synopsis involves a psychiatrist who must team with a deeply disturbed patient in order to escape werewolves who run an institution for the criminally insane.  Uh…oooookay?  I love werewolves, but I have a feeling this one’s gonna suck.  Scan your peepers over some cool cover art below:

FIRST PIC OF BILL MOSELEY IN ZOMBIE’S ‘HALLOWEEN’ SEQUEL

So, since Rob Zombie can’t make a flick without Bill Moseley in it, he’s going to be in H2, even though he DIED in the first one.  How???  As the unrecognizable TV HORROR HOST UNCLE COFFINS!!  Here’s a pic:

HORROR TRIO WEIGHS IN ON REMAKES

Posted on 8th March 2009 by aaron in News - Tags: , , ,

Shock Till You Drop got in on a panel where Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper, and Mick Garris were asked what they thought about remakes.  I agreed with Mick Garris, but Tobe Hooper and Wes Craven seem to see nothin’ but “money, money, money, money, moneeeeeeeeeey.”  Christ on a bike, what the fuck has happened…what…?  Anyway, here’s what they had to say:

Wes Craven: “I have one coming out next week. And it’s a fine, wonderful film. I wouldn’t say that. It was one of those cases of, after 30 years, the guys who made the film got to own it again and we got to remake it. Total control. Final cut. Found a fantastic director. A Greek director who made a film called Hardcore. I said, don’t make my film over. He did a fabulous job, made it totally his own. The Maltese Falcon is the second or third remake of a previous film, so there’s nothing wrong with whether something deserves to be remade or not, it’s just whether it’s a damn good film or not.”

Tobe Hooper: “I think it’s inevitable and I think it’s a good thing. I think DeMille did one of his films three times and Hitchcock as well. In those days you couldn’t take the film home with you. When Chainsaw, the remake…I was going to direct it. I didn’t feel right. I asked Gus Van Sant his advice and he said, ‘I’d probably remake anything I’ve ever done.’ It’s what it is, man.”

Mick Garris: “I’d like to say one thing about the Chainsaw remake, it’s a product. A nicely made film, but Tobe’s movies really reflect Tobe’s personalities and sensibilities. I mean this as a compliment when I say the remake of Texas Chainsaw, what was wrong with it, is that it lacked the madness the original had. The madness was displayed through humor that was so dark, it was red. It was red humor. That, and the under-appreciated Chainsaw 2 which I think is a masterpiece of horror. It evolved. Wes has his Last House on the Left remake reflecting that filmmaker’s personality. Tobe’s work reflects his personality. If a remake has a personality that’s one thing, if it’s not just a product. And unfortunately, most of the crap out there is just product.”

NEW PROMO FOR ‘LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT’ REMAKE

Just got this in the ‘ol inbox.  How would YOU kill ’em…

FIRST IMAGE OF MYERS FROM ZOMBIE’S HALLOWEEN SEQUEL

I should say “Halloween REMAKE THAT SUCKED SHIT Sequel.”  In any case, below is the first pic from the upcoming redux sequel in which we find that Michael Myers is indeed Grizzly Fucking Adams.  What…the…fuck…is…THAT?  Is that supposed to be a mask or has Michael Myers become a mountain man?  Check it out for yourself and see.
