Deodato, Lenzi, Bava & More Team Up For Horror Anthology, ‘The Book’

26 November 2013 12:08 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

We have had some issues with the administrative side of the site. Otherwise, this would have been posted earlier on in the week. However, it seems like everything is stable again so I wanted to post this out there.

Ruggero Deodato, Umberto Lenzi, Enzo G. Castellari, Aldo Lado, Sergio Martino and more are names that any European horror fan should know. These directors brought us titles that are being celebrated and paid tribute to today. Through an IndieGoGo campaign, these directors are trying to team up to bring their version of a horror anthology to the fans. The horror anthology genre is growing. Acting as somewhat as a tribute to the films that said directors grew up with like Creepshow as well as creating a product out of the communal aspect of genre filmmaking community. Earlier this week, a press release went out about a new horror anthology film trying »

Demons & Demons 2 Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbooks From Synapse Films!

30 May 2013 5:11 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Lamberto Bava (son of Italian horror godfather Mario Bava)’s splatter-fest Demons is one of the most seminal Italian splatter films of the 80s. Goblin member Claudio Simonetti’s score is full of metal hair rage, Sergio Stivaletti’s special FX makeup is the gooiest & grossest of all time; it’s an insane neon nightmare from start to finish. While it’s meta sequel Demons 2 isn’t at the same level is predecessor is, it’s still admirably gonzo and inherently weird.

Both have seen countless releases on every format thus far, but from the looks of it, Synapse Films have created definitive releases. Available for Pre-Order only through Synapse directly, Demons and Demons 2 are being released as Limited Edition Steelbooks, limited to a strict, one pressing 3,000 copies. These will run you $45.95 shipped, and you’ll receive yours around the tentative street date of October 29th.

Synapse Shows Off its Demons and Demons 2 Blu-rays

29 May 2013 1:35 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Okay, kids. Time to drool a little bit as we're about to show you two amazing packages for Synapse Films' upcoming Blu-ray releases of the classic flicks Demons and Demons 2. The word "badass" is an understatement.

From the Synapse Films Website

We wanted to keep everyone updated on Demons and Demons 2, and we’re pleased to announce a little surprise with these two titles. Synapse Films has been approached by Scanavo, the makers of the Steelbook cases for Blu-ray and DVD, and we have decided to do something a little special for the fans.

As many of you know, for the past few years, Synapse has done “Limited Edition” versions of some of our titles near the holidays. We did the limited edition Blu of Intruder with the workprint (sold out in 3 weeks), and last year we did the limited edition Blu of The Definitive Document Of The Dead »

Exclusive: 'The Profane Exhibit' Hires Two New Gentlemen

1 May 2013 4:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

As a fan of extreme horror - both in tone and gross-outs - I have been keeping a close eye on The Profane Exhibit. The anthology of extreme horror will include segments directed by a collection of internationally renown filmmakers like Sergio Stivaletti (Dellamorte Dellamore), Coffin Joe (At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police), and Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust) who returns to horror after over twenty years. 

Each segment will be introduced by a different person, known collectively as the Gentlemen (regardless of gender), storytellers from important moments in horror history. Previously announced Gentlemen include Bai Ling (The Crow, Dumplings) and Tony Todd (Candyman). Joining that list are Laurence Harvey and Christina Lindberg.

Laurence is best known for his role in The Human Centipede 2, and will appear in The Human Centipede 3. Christina is best known for Thriller: A Cruel Picture (aka They Call Her One-Eye) a »

Tony Todd and Bai Ling Join The Profane Exhibit; More Details on the Segments

29 March 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Anthology film The Profane Exhibit has been in the works for some time now, but things are moving along with casting news for the wrap-around along with more detailed descriptions of the various segments and quotes from a few directors. It's a lot of good stuff so prepare to be here awhile.

From the Press Release:

The producers of “The Profane Exhibit” are excited to announce that both Tony Todd (pictured) and Bai Ling have join the long-awaited horror anthology. They will be featured in the cast of "22 Rue des Martyrs," written by Ray Garton, which serves as the film's wrap-around segment.

David Bond and Manda Manuel are the architects of what is likely the most daring independent horror film project to date, both in concept and scope. Assembling an almost surreal collection of over 100 horror icons (directors, writers, actors, musicians, etc.), Bond's vision is to present the audience with »
