New Jersey/Philadelphia’s Exhumed Films continues to dig up great stuff for their double features of vintage fear fare, and they’ve got a pair of shows (all in 35mm) this summer that will take you Down Under and confront you with EVIL.
Bloodsuckers are infesting the the Marvel Universe again. In the first X-MEN #1 in almost 20 years, Marvel’s mighty mutants enter the Heroic Age to face a deadly new threat: vampires! Check out the teaser cover after the jump.
Who woulda thunk we’d be reporting today on two different projects titled BEYOND THE PALE? We posted a feature earlier today on Glass Eye Pix’s TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE audio-horror series (you can check it out here); so what’s this other BEYOND THE PALE? Find out after the jump.
There certainly has been a great deal of news and publicity centering on THE WALKING DEAD. Today, more talk hit the web, this time from THE MIST director himself.
Glass Eye Pix, the New York-area horror factory run by independent filmmaker Larry Fessenden (pictured), has been busier than ever these days, with four features in a coproduction deal with Dark Sky Films wrapped and being readied for release, and SATAN HATES YOU, a collaboration with MonsterPants, just premiered and about to hit the festival circuit. As if all this big-screen activity wasn’t enough, Fango got the scoop that Glass Eye will be terrorizing the audiosphere via an on-line series called TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE.
We’re only days away from TRUE BLOOD’s premiere, and actor Ryan Kwanten—who plays Sookie’s older brother and Bon Temps’ resident ladies man Jason Stackhouse—had some things to say about his character and the upcoming season.
It was previously announced that the horror film STRIPPED was going to be directed by John Wildman (from a script by Wildman and Justina Walford), and that THE VIOLENT KIND’s Tiffany Shepis and Samrat Chakrabarti are in the cast. Today, Wildman revealed that a well-known adult film actress is now on board.
Centipede Press, the literary purveyor of all tales weird, extreme and horrific, has announced new and expanded editions of several of their classic books.
THE WOLFMAN had a lot of hype (as well as a lot of drama behind-the-scenes), but its critical reception was mixed at best, and it didn’t exactly roar at the box office, pulling in a little over $60 million domestically and $139 million worldwide. Special FX guru Rick Baker did the makeup on the film, and recently gave his thoughts on THE WOLFMAN and practical vs. visual FX, as well as revealed the next big project on his calendar.

Acclaimed, Oscar-winning Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar is getting ready to roll LA PIEL QUE HABITO (THE SKIN I LIVE IN), his long-planned first venture into dark thriller territory since 1986’s MATADOR. He originally envisioned the female starring role for longtime collaborator Penelope Cruz, but now the project has a new leading lady, one with some genre experience.
Peter Straub has been published since the early ’70s, with 17 novels to his credit as well as novellas, collections, poetry and edited works. Still, only two movies have been made of his books, the last being 1981’s GHOST STORY. But that number looks like it might increase by one, as a 3-D adaptation of his 1980 supernatural novel SHADOWLAND is in the works.
