Instead of a Sequel to Cabin Fever: Patient Zero a Cabin Fever Remake Is on its Way

3 hours ago

We don't quite know what to think about this news. Back in May of last year, word was that Cabin Fever: Patient Zero would be rebooting the franchise and kicking off a new trilogy. Now things seem to have changed...

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that sources at Cannes have told them that Indomina will instead put a remake of Eli Roth’s 2002 love-it-or-hate-it original Cabin Fever into production now that Patient Zero is arriving on VOD June 26th and in theatres on August 1st via Rlj/Image Entertainment.

Evolution Entertainment, which produced the first three Saw films as well as Dead Silence and Death Sentence, will be producing the remake with Cassian Elwes and Evan Astrowsky. It's doubtful Roth will lend much more than his name to this one.

The original, Roth's directorial debut, is an offbeat horror tale about a group of five college friends on vacation at a remote mountain cabin. »

Be an Animal with this Preview of Hannibal Episode 2.09 - Shiizakana

4 hours ago

Although we're not sure "Hannibal" will ever be able to top tonight's #Turducken insanity, we can't wait to see the powers-that-be try in next week's Episode 2.09, "Shiizakana." Here's a preview of what's ahead.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.09 - "Shiizakana" (airs 4/25/14; 10-11Pm)

The FBI is called in to investigate the grisly discovery of a truck driver’s body, seemingly torn apart by two separate species of animal working in tandem, neither of which consumed their kill.

After one of his therapy sessions, Will (Hugh Dancy) meets Hannibal’s (Mads Mikkelsen) strange new patient, Margot Verger (Katharine Isabelle). Will and Margot compare notes on Hannibal and his unconventional advice. Continually encouraging his patients to revel in what they are, Hannibal aims to determine Will’s true self by sending him a test, the results of which surprise even Hannibal.

Also starring Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson; guest starring Jeremy Davies.

The First Cut Is the Deepest in Brandon Ford's New Novel Open Wounds

11 hours ago

Brandon Ford is a horror author whose works we've covered and reviewed fairly extensively here at Dread Central so when he dropped us a line with word on his latest project along with the cover art, of course we had to share!

A twisted and often unsettling glimpse into the mind of an unwitting victim, Open Wounds tells the story of a young girl’s battle to maintain her safety and sanity after she is preyed upon by a savage predator.

Synopsis:

The first cut brings a wave of calm that immediately washes over her. The second, an incomparable bliss. The third, euphoria in its purest, most absolute form.

She finds only the slightest comfort in scrawling the details of her horrific tale onto the pages of a leatherbound diary. But when her living nightmare becomes more than she can bear, the only comfort she finds is beneath the blade of a paring knife. »

14 hours ago

Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but we know that the next season of "American Horror Story" will have a carnival theme and that several recurring cast members will return. One of those actors is "True Blood's" Denis O'Hare, who just spilled some beans about his character.

In an interview with Vulture, O'Hare confirmed that he will be appearing in all ten episodes of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" and doing battle with Jessica Lange's character. "I’m going to be working at cross-purposes with her. We’re going to be like this," he told the site, crossing his fingers.

Without giving too much away, O'Hare hinted that his character will be "a collector of freaks," rather than a freak himself.

The other cast members announced thus far include Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Jamie Brewer, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy. »

Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J.
