Horror News: Joan Allen Thinks She Has ‘A Good Marriage’

Stephen King was my first real entrance into the world of horror. When I was in ninth grade, I convinced my English teacher to let me read The Stand for my assigned reading, even though it wasn’t “AP-approved.” My powers of persuasion may rival those of Randall Flagg, but I digress. Joan Allen will star […]

Horror News: New One-Sheet for ‘The Collection’

Throughout my education and training, I have always been taught to watch for the smallest details. The international one-sheet for The Collection, the sequel to The Collector, has been released. The film is directed by Marcus Dunstan, who also co-wrote the film with Patrick Melton. After escaping from the Collector, protagonist Arkin (Josh Stewart) is […]

Horror News: Enter the ‘Citadel’ by Watching the Teaser

There are two types of horror protagonists. The first are well-armed, well-trained, and unstoppable. Demons? Hollow points filled with holy water. Zombies? Cannon fodder. Mighty Cthulhu? Airstrike. These characters may break a sweat, and they may bleed, but in the end, they’ll light a cigar, utter a macho pun, and strut on to the sequel. […]

Horror News: ‘The Apparition’ Trailer and Pics Show Potential

Sometimes, I find trailers more entertaining than the finished product. Nevertheless, I continue to hope for the best. When the writing and acting in modern horror films finally manages to match the imagery, atmosphere, and visual effects that draw us into the theaters, we will enter the real golden age of the genre. Of course, […]

Horror News: The Weekly Offering

Welcome, mortals, to The Weekly Offering. Here, we present our dark gifts in hopes that we please the Ancient Ones, that they might spare us. They are satisfied with our humble sacrifices of news, images, reviews, and commentary through the week, but on Fridays, they desire more. Their weekends, their unholy Sabbath, know no bounds. […]

Horror News: You May Go Into Shock After Seeing These ‘Aftershock’ Pics

What is it that holds society together? I would hypothesize that the answer to that question has changed over time. A thousand years ago, it was stone. Today, it’s concrete and steel. And no, I am not speaking in just a literal sense. When the great societies that we have built begin to crumble around […]

Horror News: Journey to Universal Studios to Visit ‘Silent Hill’

Every Halloween season, I make my pilgrimage to any haunted house of repute that I can afford to attend. My ultimate goal is to feel absolute fear, confront it, slay it, and triumph over it. As I get older, and as my mind grows harder to the horrors I face at my day job, it […]

Horror News: Scott Snyder Will Bring Back The Joker

When I was introduced to comics (which was not so long ago), I was given one piece of crucial advice: The author and the artist are much more important than the subject or protagonist. And yet, sometimes, you can have the best of both worlds. Horror has been making its presence known in the comic […]

Horror News: Digitally Torture Your Real-Life Enemies with ‘Spinferno’

We all have someone whom we want to see bleed. It may be your boss. It may be that psycho ex. It may be that so-called “celebrity” everyone’s always talking about. Well, for a few spare dollars, you can make your dark, twisted fantasies a digital reality. Chris Crane had a delightfully macabre thought. How […]

Horror News: Bloody Good Image from ‘The Human Race’

In preparation for the Fantasia International Film Festival, an image has been released for The Human Race. Director Paul Hough’s latest film finds a group of people competing in a sinister marathon where the rules are excessively brutal, but all too familiar: “If you are lapped, you die. If you step off the path, you […]

Horror News: A ‘Sinister’ Trailer

Sometimes, despite everything, you still have to remain optimistic. The trailer for Sinister has made its grisly debut. I have to say, my attention is piqued, despite the fact that the credits attached to the film have me more than a little concerned. To begin with, the director and co-writer is Scott Derrickson, best known […]

Horror News: ‘V/H/S’ Trailer in Glorious Blood-Red Band

You wanted more? You weren’t the only ones. Last week, we offered the new poster for V/H/S as a humble sacrifice to the Ancient Ones. They were pleased, but demanded more. And now, we offer the official red band trailer direct from Yahoo! movie trailers. In my experience, found footage films are like that sexy, […]

Horror News: ‘Antiviral’ Gets U.S. Release

It seems that horror runs in the family. Brandon Cronenberg, son of David Cronenberg (The Dead Zone, The Fly), made his debut at the Cannes Film Festival with Antiviral. Now, IFC Midnight has obtained the rights to distribute the film in the United States. Cronenberg, the younger, also wrote the screenplay, and the film stars […]

The Roving Eye Is Fixed On The ‘Skyfall’ Teaser Trailer

Recently, we here at Horror’s Not Dead created The Roving Eye as our compartment in which to store news, reviews, and reactions to genre fare that doesn’t quite fit into the horror mold. Lucky we did, because the teaser trailer for Sam Mendes’ ‘Skyfall,’ the 23rd chapter of the Bond saga, has just landed online […]

Horror News: Peter Weir May Lock Us In ‘The Keep’

There are many types of horror films. There are zombies, serial killers, demons, and things that go bump in the night. But few things can reach into the deepest realms of our minds and raise our pulses quite like the cold touch of the specter; the chill piercing the lungs like frozen needles. Oh, yes. […]

Horror News: ‘Hoax Hunters #1′ Coming Soon

Monsters are real. This we know, but even the most avid horror fanatics grow weary of the overeager and ultimately unscientific methods by which those graced with television presence attempt to prove the existence of said monsters. So, how could anyone possibly make this done to death idea any good? Simple. Turn everything backwards. Hoax […]

Horror News: Neil Marshall May Captain ‘The Demeter’

Dark, disturbing, claustrophobic, and suffocating, like a dead, decomposing albatross draped upon the shoulders of the subconscious. Neil Marshall’s The Descent was more than just another film about creatures that go bump in the dark. The primal, brutal, disgusting nature of the creatures forced the civilized protagonists to bury their modern sensibilities in order to […]

Horror News: Lovecraftian Monsters in the Style of Gorey

Saying that I enjoy art is like saying that a zombie occasionally indulges in cerebral gray matter. Saying that I am fond of Lovecraft mythology would be like implying that Nosferatu was partial to AB positive. So when I saw this collection of Lovecraftian monsters drawn in the style of Edward Gorey, the part of […]

Horror News: Conflict Looms Over ‘Evil Dead’

Like a chainsaw arm to a zombie skull, the ugly demon of civil lawsuits has once again cut its way into the news. And this time, I’m fairly certain I know whose side we’re all on. A legal battle has erupted over the rights to a fourth Evil Dead film. When Sam Raimi and Renaissance […]

Horror News: New Pic From ‘Chernobyl Diaries’

You have haunted houses. You have ghost towns. But how about an entire city crawling with the shadows of the dead and the damned? Enter Pripyat, Ukraine. A new still has been released from the upcoming film Chernobyl Diaries, from Alcon and FilmNation. Keeping us in the dark, literally and figuratively, the picture offers us […]

Horror News: Will Seth Rogen Survive the Apocalypse?

People may say that horror movies don’t feel real. “These are just actors. This is just a movie. It’s not really happening.” Is it? Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming up again to bring us the End of the World. Inspired by a short film entitled Jay and Seth vs the Apocalypse, the film […]

Theatrical Trailers and Clips THE DESCENT: PART 2 – I’m just going to assume this is going to end up in theaters.  A lot of people are shitting on this trailer, but I dig the idea of having her go back down in the caves, which is surprising considering I still hate that stupid movie. […]

PSA: Brad Anderson’s SESSION 9 is on Hulu.

One of these days I’ll round up a master list of all the great horror titles available (legally) on the Internet, but until then you’ll have to suffice with me having just crossed paths with SESSION 9 on Hulu.  I don’t think I need to tell anyone how great the movie is, you’re all at […]

Uh, Wait, What? Plot for HUMAN CENTIPEDE Blows My Mind.

[UPDATE: Read my HUMAN CENTIPEDE review right here.] I came across some photos for the Dutch/UK co-production HUMAN CENTIPIEDE the other day, but I had no idea the context.

The IFC Midnight Slate Will Put After Dark Films Out of Business.

Courtney Solomon, owner of After Dark Films and sayer/doer of stupid things, needs to open up his knowledge basket to the IFC Films release platform. When the ADF Horrorfest started three years ago it was hard to hide the hope one had for a once a year event designed to bring the horror festival experience […]

Did you know ANTICHRIST has a Game in the Works?

I must have missed that press release at E3. Unfortunately I had the ending to Lars von Triers‘ Willem Dafoe starring shocker ANTICHRIST spoiled for me thanks to a headline at Drudge Report (not unlike the ending to INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, which makes me wonder why I even read Matt Drudge any more), but even without […]

Note: was anyone else aware that South Korea has a reality show about exorcisms?  And that its music is the SAW theme? Also, what billiards game involves a blue pool table with no pockets and only three balls, the goal of which, as far as I can surmise, is to hit both balls after bouncing […]

Finally OUTLANDER has a release date.

I keep mumbling to the wall that I’m going to ween myself off of non-horror related Sci-Fi postings, but apparently I am incapable of such a promise.  Also, since showing the trailer for vikings vs. spaceman vs. alien flick OUTLANDER to some friends a few months ago, without fail someone will ask me every two […]

“FEAR ITSELF” episodes now on FEARnet

Heads up; FEARnet online and OnDemand is now host to the NBC spinoff of “MASTERS OF HORROR”, “FEAR ITSELF”.  Not that the show was amazing, but I am always in support of televised, non-serialized horror.  The schedule is posted below and looks to include only the episodes that already aired over the summer.  I could […]

“TRUE BLOOD” Nominated for Best Drama at the Golden Globes!

Title speaks it all.  Not that the Golden Globes are by any means a stamp of superior judgment, but gotta love that they know what’s what as far as the genre goes.  Not only is “TRUE BLOOD” a contender, but so is “DEXTER”. Good on ya’, Foreign Press.  Now let’s not talk about your film […]

Theatrical Trailers and Clips Really?  I was gone for two weeks and not a single new theatrical trailer came out?  I must have missed something… Studio News and Attachments A Bigger Boat’s first production will be Adam Green’s FROZEN, which is superficially described as OPEN WATER in a ski lift.  Except probably without sharks. Warner […]

R.I.P. Michael Crichton: 1942-2008

This fucking blows. It is not an overstatement to say that Michael Crichton had more influence on my childhood imagination than any other writer.  In fact, if one were to dig through my old elementary and middle school assignments, every book report was for a Crichton novel.  I even recall writing an essay on why […]

First Impression: SPLATTERHOUSE (Game)

The first trailer for Splatterhouse has arrived: I must admit, the trailer reminds me of HOSTEL and that does not bode well.   Although the graphics sure look uninspired, there isn’t too much to praise or condemn. With no real gameplay or features shown, it is more of a teaser than anything. In the end it’s […]

Last Week in Horror, September 28th to October 5th

Last Week in Horror we finally started to see some marketing material for studio backed films and I couldn’t be more saddened?  Why?  Well, of the four studio clips, three are for remakes and the other is a PG-13 teen shocker that I’m going to guess will most heavily be advertised on MTV and MySpace. […]

Last Week in Horror, September 21st to the 28th

Last Week in Horror I realized that the studio horror future is looking grim.  No, not talking quality, talking quantity.  I haven’t come across a new, full trailer for a theatrical studio picture in weeks now.  I’m sure that will change in October as, THE WOLFMAN, FRIDAY THE 13TH, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, and, well, a […]

Last Week in Horror: September 14th to the 21st

Last Week in Horror found no shortage of minor announcements, but enough of which excite me in earnest.  In the world of TV, Goyer and “TREK” vet Braga sell an intriguing hour long series premise to ABC, HBO renews the proven cool “TRUE BLOOD” and Sci-Fi orders full the unproven “WAREHOUSE 13″. A few pieces […]

Last Week in Horror, September 7th to the 14th.

Last Week in Horror was predisposed to minor updates of news already established.  Survival horror game CLOCK TOWER is still looking to roll, this time with a PROM NIGHTer climbing the stairs.  Danny Boyle mentions a 28 X LATER again.  Minds behind the remake of MY BLOODY VALENTINE have already begun the mulling of a […]

Last Week in Horror, August 31st to September 7th

Last Two Weeks in Horror I was paying no attention to what was going on, but I’m back home now.  I’m running on a scant few hours of sleep and an internal clock set ahead 7 hours from its current location of Eastern Standard Time, so the below is just a cursory check-up on some […]

Last Week in Horror, August 17th to the 24th

Last Week in Horror, TRICK ‘R TREAT got teased around a bit more.  Turns out you can see it in theaters, for free even, but one day only.  After that, enjoy waiting for the unannounced DVD.  Of utmost importance, though: We may finally see MONSTER BLOOD, SAY CHEESE AND DIE, or, dare we hope, IT […]

Last Week in Horror, August 10th to the 17th

Last Week in Horror, folk got all in a huff over talks that CANDYMAN was not only being remade, but that the titular ghost of a murdered slave would be as white as the slave-drivers what killed ‘em.  Just talks, folks, just talks.  Though, I suppose that is how it always starts. Magnet Releasing announced […]

Last Week in Horror, August 3rd to the 10th

Last Week in Horror was rather slender in the news department.  MTV hosts a trailer for THE HAUNTING OF MOLLY HARTLET, which hits theaters this Halloween, sure to fall away soon after.  Warner Brothers does some further flip flopping on Michael Dougherty’s debut film, one I’ve been wanting to see for a while now. Some […]

Last Week in Horror, July 27th to August 3rd

Last Week in Horror was some kind of post-ComicCon orgy of news.  Either this was all left over from the con and took a week to rise to the top or PR folk knew their news wasn’t big enough to rock a convention and thus waited a week.  Whatever the case, I feel like this […]

Last Week in Horror, July 20th to 27th

Last Week in Horror was a helluva week.  Not that anything too chest pounding happened, but it was privy to the San Diego Comic-Con, which of course means that the web was inflamed with lice like news tidbits.  But you know what?  In all the huff,  the only thing that really jazzed me was Aronofsky […]

Someone get me an agent, the Sci-Fi channel needs me…

…and I need it. Sci-Fi channel announced a slate of new projects and I couldn’t be more diametrically energized by it.  A few new scripted shows from established talent (Bryan Singer and David O. Russell both have shows in development), even more small cap episodes of reality TV and then this bombshell; 50% more Sci-Fi […]

Last Week in Horror: July 13th to the 20th

Last Week in Horror we got our first look at the new Jason.  Several new announcements for novel adaptations.  I suppose enough people enjoyed it that Romero is quickly back to work on a sequel to DIARY, I sure wasn’t clammoring for one.  Other than that, not much major news breaks or insights to current […]

Last Week in Horror: June 6th to the 13th

Last Week in Horror was the slowest week of the year.  Very little happenings and what was worth mentioning is vague on the details.  Joss Whedon teams back up with Drew Goddard for a ‘cabin in the woods’ genre flick called, well, CABIN IN THE WOODS.  Other than that, no real news to speak of.  […]

Last Week in Horror: June 29th to July 6th

Last Week in Horror, The items of most interest to me belong to genre brother Sci-Fi.  Alex Proyas’ latest film, KNOWING, finally got a trailer, albeit a derivative, uninvolved one.  But I love DARK CITY so much, even Nicholas Cage’s forehead couldn’t keep me away.  Same goes for Keanu Reeves’, well, entire self in THE […]

Last Week in Horror: June 22nd to the 29th

Last Week in Horror, the most interesting thing I came across was, against all conceptions, the first official poster for SAW V.  I think it is a magnificent poster and, for the first time in a long time, exhibits the staying power of horror icons.  Though the lack of nipples in it is quite weird […]

Last Week in Horror: June 15th to the 22nd

Last Week in Horror the only important thing that occured was the untimely passing of Stan Winston.  I recommend all fans head over and read Ain’t it Cool’s tribute to the man, which features write-ins from the artists’ friends, who range from James Cameron to Greg Nicotero to Alan Scott to Rick Baker to Fred […]

Stan Winston: 1946 – 2008

There are few icons themselves responsible for creating as many icons as Stan Winston did in his 62 short years. The extent of his gift to cinema is unquantifiable. Tonight I’ll honor my favorite works of his, I hope others will as well. Reported by AICN.

Last Week in Horror, June 8th to the 15th

Last Week in Horror, there was a ton of FRIDAY THE 13th remake tidbits.  Pictures of the Camp Crystal Lake sign, pictures of the hockey mask, talk of fan winks and mention that both the sack and the mask get play.  There is a teaser for Alexandre Aja’s remake of MIRRORS.  It is short and […]

Last Week in Horror: June 1st to June 8th

Last Week in Horror was all about attachments.  Brittany Murphy and Thora Birch join a “psychological thrilller”, which means the press release gave away the ending.  Remember Zack Snyder’s epic zombie project, the one promising to be the largest undead film of all time, ARMY OF THE DEAD?  Well, it now has a director. And […]

Last Week in Horror: May 25th to June 1st

Last Week in Horror, tragedy struck two of the genre’s more interesting studios.  Universal had a massive fire and Tartan US went out of business (but Tartan UK etc are still in business).  No real knockout announcements or trailers though.  And, to be honest I’m ridiculously tired right now, so I’m going to stop typing.

Last Week in Horror: May 18th to the 25th, 2008

Last Week in Horror, not a whole lot worth while happened. Some release dates got firmed up, some remake rights purchased and that’s about it. So instead of an intro-cap, this is all you get. Oh, and Austin gets my seal of approval as being a great place, ya know, in case the argument was […]

Last Week in Horror: May 11th to the 18th

Last Week in Horror we got a horn of plenty in the news department – and not just because set photos from JENNIFER’S BODY leaked. First off, not one, but two sentences in this post start with the words David Lynch. As if that wasn’t enough, one of those sentences contains the words Werner Herzog […]

Last Week in Horror: 4/4 – 4/11

Last Week in Horror gamers the world over could breathe a sigh of relief, Gore Verbinski is directing BIOSHOCK from a John Logan script. Had you polled me a week ago on who I would want to tackle the 360 genre bender, I’d of come up empty handed, but this has all the airs of […]

Last Week in Horror: 4/27 – 5/04

Last Week in horror seemed quite busy, though not a whole lot happened in the studio realm. Lots of little news to pepper the place, ranging from no longer relevant ‘rappers’ headlining what I can only assume to be an amazing movie called THE PIG PEOPLE to Hammer Films, of all joints, picking up the […]

Last Week in Horror: 4/20 : 4/27

Last Week in Horror was either all remakes or all horror sequels [most redundant typo ever?]. IT’S ALIVE, HELL NIGHT, FRIDAY THE 13TH, THE FURY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME all had tidbits tidbitting about. However, I am quite sure the biggest news of the week was Eli Roth announcing his [temporary] withdrawal from horror? Why?  […]

Last Week in Horror: 4/13 – 4/20

Last Week was a standard seven days for genre news. No breaking headlines, no juicy bits of intrigue. So instead of the normal pre-jump sum, I would like to express how many smiles I got out of an exchange in the latest Apatovian flick FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL in which 3 others dissect the stupid, stupid, […]

Last Week in Horror: 04/6 – 04/13

Last week one of my most anticipated horror properties, the wonderful HACK/SLASH, finally got a writer, albeit an unproven. Sam Rami and Rob Tapert pulled a Dimension Extreme/After Dark Films and created release arm Ghost House Underground. FRIDAY THE 13TH cast some machete fodder. Oh, and, PROM NIGHT made over $9 million dollars on its […]

Last Week in Horror: 3/30 – 4/6

Weak week for news.  Quite a few theatrical trailers, so that is a plus.  The HELLRAISER remake gets all shook up.  WB puts TRICK ‘R TREAT up on the auction block.  ’80s horror hotties are tapped for a project, as gimmicky as it is, that sounds cheesy awesome.  The two biggest news items of the […]

Last Week In Horror: 3/16 – 3/23

An odd barrel of news this week.  Of most interest to my person is the release date for Alexandre Aja’s next.  Then we’ve got Regal Cinemas bringing back red band trailers to all of its theaters.   Benecio gets some official Wolfey snaps.  And in my news travels I came across this, a poster that may […]

Last Week in Horror: 03/09 – 03/16

Last Week Sam Raimi went back to producing television.  A Verhoeven classic was on the receiving end of some rumors, while Charlize Theron sexied up a LADY VENGEANCE remake.  LOST BOYS 2 got a trailer, but who cares, because I think the real footage everyone has been waiting for is finally here: THE GINGERDEAD MAN […]

Is John Carpenter Out of “Fear Itself”?

An official press release has hit the webs with a list of directors, actors, writers and plot descriptions for NBCs forthcoming "MASTERS OF HORROR" redux, "FEAR ITSELF":  The lineup is pretty much what has been known for weeks, but most curiously is the absence of John Carpenter.  Carpenter would have been teaming up with AICN’ers […]

Last Week in Horror: 2/24 – 3/2

Last week the house that Freddy Krueger built fell to the business wayside.  Ellen Page must have received a talking to from Halle Berry and Hilary Swank and subsequently broke Sam Raimi’s heart.  Stephen King started making a musical.  A Christian themed horror screenplay was a disaster on eBay.  A very nice looking Swede vampire […]

According to Quint over at AICN, at least.  And I see no reason to doubt the man. He holds hope that the draft he read was a very, very early draft, but I doubt much will change.  As it stands, it bares zero resemblance to the Halloween that John Carpenter gifted upon the world.  The […]

Edgar Wright Announced as new Grindhouse Guest Director

The title pretty much says it all.  Edgar Wright, director of the fantastic Shaun of the Dead and the upcoming Hot Fuzz (which despite the inherent comedy, is supposed to dish out the red), has loaned his talents to Rodriguez and Tarantino.  He’ll be helming one of the fake trailers sandwhiched between the film’s halves, […]

Horror is Dead. Eli Roth killed it with a single poster.

It is this Hostel II poster – and this poster alone – that has convinced me studio horror has no future.  It may not be dead in the sense that blood and synaptic nerve firings keep it physically animated and profitable, but it is as dead as any other junkie unable to kick its self […]

Darren Lynn Bousman Attaches Himself to Potential Brilliance

People love Saw.  While I’m not going to pledge my undying allegiance to the series, I respect the hell out of it for being the only original and successful horror franchise in years.  I thought James Wan’s starter had great moments of interest, but structurally had too many cracks to hold up against even a […]

Yesterday Fangoria confirmed some details about Stuart Gordon’s upcoming House of Re-Animator, which is the 3rd sequel to Gordon’s 1985 adaptation of H.P.

Some Fred Dekker News

A week after I prayed for some Fred Dekker news in my review of Night of the Creeps, Fango has some up on their site from the man himself in which he debunks Slither as a rip-off of Creeps, the possibility of DVD releases of both Creeps and Monster Squad, as well as a new […]

Updated: Silent Hill is Going to Kick Ass

I’m trying to get right to the point with my post titles. I was really impressed with the trailer when it first hit (and still am), but it wasn’t until reading Fango’s piece on the film in their latest issue that I started to put a lot of faith behind it. Christophe Gans is an […]

Snakes On a Plane Isn’t Fucking Around

Roth to Direct King’s Cell

Despite my incredible and unflinching disdain for Hostel and 2001 Maniacs, I do stil have great faith in Eli Roth – even if seeing his face now makes me want to punch him in the head instead of shake his hand (I’m not sure why). It was announced today that he would be the man […]
