Dick Johnson & Tommygun vs. the Cannibal Cop has wrapped principal photography in Buffalo, NY, and we have the first set of stills right here. Get a look at this upcoming horror comedy, or face the wrath of Dick. Trust us... Dick wrath sucks.

The film, an action-horror-buddy cop hybrid, was written by John Renna, who co-stars with Sam Qualiana. Danny Hicks, Debbie Rochon, and Timothy Patrick Quill are also in the cast.

"Working with Danny and Tim, and finally getting to direct Debbie, was a true honor," says Renna.

He also gives a lot of credit to his location, "The support we received from local businesses was staggering. Buffalo actively supports film and art, making a lot possible on a minimal budget."

Qualiana plays Dick Johnson, a by-the-book detective who partners with rough-around-the-edges Jeff "Tommygun" Thompson to track down the elusive and mysterious Cannibal Cop. Hicks plays their captain, who »

What to Watch: Feb. 18-24, 2014

18 February 2014 10:05 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

What an amazing week for TV fans. As if you didn’t have enough stacking to do with the new, brilliant season of “House of Cards” on Netflix, there are four other full seasons in this week’s What to Watch that you really should watch front to back. And then there’s the still-amazing “Darkman,” a cult classic that perfectly captures Sam Raimi’s skill at controlled chaos. Finally, we have two ’80s horror flicks in one set in “Bad Dreams” and “Visiting Hours.” Check ‘em all out (Ok, you can skip the genre stinkers).

The Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise

18 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

From his modest start in that ramshackle cabin in the woods what must seem like a lifetime ago, Sam Raimi has become one of the more versatile and beloved directors in Hollywood. With Scream Factory's Blu-ray release of Darkman today, we bring you our Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise.

We're going to keep this list to films directed by Raimi. If we were to include the movies he's acted in, or god forbid produced, we'd be here all night. But a few of his production credits like 30 Days of Night, both of The Grudge films, Boogeyman, The Possession, Timecop and of course the Evil Dead remake are noteworthy.

Some honorable directorial mentions include his most recent, Oz the Great and Powerful. It might not have been the epic it was billed to be, but it looked fantastic; and when you manage to haul in half a billion »
