James McAvoy and M. Night Shyamalan go behind-the-scenes on Split – I’m cautiously optimistic about Split, the latest genre offering from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. The director seems to have regained his footing with 2015’s surprise hit The Visit, and if the trailers are any indication, he looks to build on that with his latest – a tale of an abduction by a man with multiple personalities. The film is slated to open this weekend, so there’s no better time to see what Shyamalan and star James McAvoy have to say about the project in this new behind-the-scenes clip. Enjoy. Phantasm box set launches in March – If you can’t get enough of Angus Scrimm and those deadly flying silver balls, then you’re in luck – Well...

Hey there, everyone! I sincerely hope this finds you all well (or at least coping) and eager (or at least willing) to take on a new year. I love doing year-end lists. For me, it’s a time of reflection, as well as expansion. Since I started with Daily Dead in April of 2015, my horror-view continues to grow; I’ve been so fortunate to meet and speak with some enduring legends of the genre, not to mention strike many new friendships through social media. But what my continuing immersion in this greatest of cultures has provided above all else is an appreciation for the variety and depth horror has to offer. It really has been a great year; unfortunately, I’ve missed some goodies, but dammit, I tried. So, without anymore ado whatsoever, here are a few (okay, a lot) of my favorite things from 2016.

We're back with our annual list of favorites here on Daily Dead. For those that are new to Daily Dead, we handle our year-end lists differently here. Rather than just covering films, our lists can extend to TV, games, collectibles, events, and anything else genre-related. In short, we’re sharing with you a list of our favorite horror experiences from 2016.
Check back every day this week to find out what made the cut for the rest of the Daily Dead team.
Train to Busan: I predict that we’ll look back at 2016 as the year when zombie-mania started its decline from the insane levels we saw when The Walking Dead regularly smashed its own ratings records and World War Z was a surprise box office success. With that said, don’t let zombie fatigue keep you from boarding the Train to Busan.
