The monster matchup of the…month, at least, is here: Syfy has DINOCROC VS. SUPERGATOR ready to hit the tube. Roger and Julie Corman produced the movie, which stars David Carradine in one of his final screen roles.
2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS is heading for R and unrated DVD release via First Look on July 20, and now the company’s trailer for Tim Sullivan’s outrageous horror/comedy sequel has hit the web.
We’re all looking forward to the impending release of MONSTERS, the indie science fiction/horror/road movie that knocked out audiences at South by Southwest and got snapped up by Magnet Releasing for theatrical play in October. Now a making-of clip with writer/director Gareth Edwards has been released via Best Buy, of all places, and you can see it after the jump.
FANGORIA has another sweet contest for horror fans, this time from the new film WOMEN’S STUDIES, which releases to DVD on June 8th. Directed by Lonnie Martin, STUDIES is about a group of students who become trapped by a group of homicidal feminists. Check out how to snag the film and a bunch of other prizes after the jump!
We horror fans know that scary movies come in all different flavors. Those of us who have taken the time to sample these flavors know that while delicious cinematic meals can be found at the fanciest of restaurants, they can also be found at the bottom of the dumpsters out back. The vast majority can appreciate the DEAD ALIVEs, and the like, but what about the SLEEPAWAY CAMPs, and other such garbage? The films even a mother has a hard time loving. We horror fans find a type of perverse satisfaction in reveling in these tragically horrible disasters that is akin to watching a clown car crash. Sure, they’re on fire and bleeding amongst the burning wreck, but they’re juggling and trying to extinguish the flames with seltzer bottles that keep spraying them in the face. We can’t help but stare and laugh. In other words, if you are going to make a horror film you need to make a choice. Either shoot for greatness, or aim for the toilet bowl. We simply do not have time or patience for anything in between.
The FIREFLY actor (who can also be seen in the upcoming TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL, which is now playing the festival circuit and due at Montreal’s Fantasia this summer) has signed on to star in writer/director Chris Gabriel’s zombie comedy.
BLACK CHRISTMAS. CHRISTMAS EVIL. SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT. When it comes to holiday-themed horror flicks, Christmas has pretty much dominated. Well, move over Saint Nick, because SICK GIRL’s Eben McGarr is aiming to direct HANUKKAH, the first Festival of Lights fright film.
[REC] 2 premieres On Demand, Xbox Live, PlayStation, Amazon and VUDU June 4 and in theaters July 9. Directed by Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, the sequel has a new clip for you to check out. And look for FANGO’s [REC] 2 review later in the day.
Opening in theaters and IMAX on June 30, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is the third film in the vampire franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s books. The latest featurette to hit the web focuses on the new vampire character of Bree Tanner, played by SILENT HILL’s Jodelle Ferland. See preview in FANGORIA #294, now on sale.
This Friday, the much praised “horror doc” CROPSEY begins its limited theatrical run at New York City’s IFC Center. Co-director Joshua Zeman recently spoke to Fango about the film and its long road to completion. Check out the first part of the video interview and find out when you can see it after the jump!
Some of the promotional materials for SPLICE have been selling it as a sex-monster romp in the SPECIES vein, and that does the movie a disservice. Director/co-writer Vincenzo Natali aims for something more ambitious here, a variation on the FRANKENSTEIN theme—he has even named his scientist protagonists Clive and Elsa.
As the June 13th premiere for year three approaches, you might want to watch this 11 1/2 minute look back at last season.
