Over the last few years, many fans of The Walking Dead have packed their bags, hopped in their cars, and headed to the Senoia, Georgia area to experience firsthand the environment where their favorite living dead show is filmed.

Scream Factory has detailed their February 2015 release of The Phantom of the Opera, starring Robert Englund:

“Los Angeles, CA – Get ready, Freddy. Scream Factory is going to the opera! A Blu-ray release of The Phantom of the Opera, including several bonus features, has been announced for release on February 17, 2015.

Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Galaxy of Terror, Freddy vs. Jason) assumes the classic role of The Phantom in this shocking, nerve-jangling retelling of Gaston Leroux’s timeless tale of music, madness and murder.

The silver-throated Christine (Jill Schoelen, The Stepfather) enjoys success through the arrangements of her new lover (Englund)… until she realizes that he has been committing unspeakably grisly murders in her honor and won’t stop until he’s completed his masterpiece… »

Contest: Win The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death Prize Pack

16 December 2014 1:43 PM, PST

Seeking to escape the Nazi bombings of London in the early 1940’s, Eve, Jean, and the orphaned children in their care head to the Eel Marsh House, unaware that the home is more dangerous than the bomb-blasted streets from which they fled. With The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death hitting theaters on January 2nd, Relativity has provided us with a prize pack to give away to one lucky Daily Dead reader.

“When a group of orphaned children are forced to move from their home in London, caretakers Eve (Phoebe Fox) and Jean (Helen McCrory) bring everyone to the desolate and eerie British countryside. 40 years after Arthur Kipps (played by Daniel Radcliffe in the first film, The Woman in Black) left, this supernatural horror film introduces this new group to the now abandoned Eel Marsh House; an odd but seemingly safe location.

The Walking Dead Companion Series Set in Los Angeles

16 December 2014 10:46 AM, PST

As fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead huddle around the hot stove this winter, waiting for the second half of Season 5 to arrive, more news about the secretive companion series continues to trickle in. For well over a year now, people have been speculating where The Walking Dead companion series will take place and now the setting of the show’s beginning has been revealed: the City of Angels.

Confirming circulating reports, TheWalkingDead.com has stated that the location of The Walking Dead companion series (currently codenamed Cobalt) is the Los Angeles area. It hasn’t been revealed what part of L.A. the show will take place in, so there is definitely no guarantee of seeing walkers stumbling around the Hollywood sign, but fans at least now have a good idea of where the new group of survivors will start their apocalyptic journey.

Tales From the Crypt Introduction Recreated in Full CG Video

15 December 2014 5:29 PM, PST

From the late 1980’s and well into the ’90’s, HBO viewers watched their screens with mounting anticipation as a creaky metal gate was pushed open on a dark and stormy night. With the lightning flashing and the thunder crackling, the first-hand view of the camera wound its way up a path surrounded by tombstones before entering a decrepit mansion at the top of a hill. Once inside the home, the camera stepped through a secret passageway in a bookcase and wound its way down a spiral staircase, eventually stopping before a coffin. As horror hounds know, the coffin’s lid would then fly open with its resident, the Cryptkeeper, springing to life, a grin on his face and a cackle emanating from his dusty throat. Many people have fond memories of this introduction to Tales From the Crypt, and a group of visual effects artists have shown their love of »

15 December 2014 3:11 PM, PST

We regularly cover Funko releases on Daily Dead and it’s for good reason. Not only is their Pop! Vinyl line still running strong, but I’ve really enjoyed their mystery mini figures and their recently launched line of Kenner-inspired ReAction figures. With Christmas nearly upon us, I thought it would be the perfect time to catch up with Reis O’Brien, who works at the Funko art department, and is one of the main people responsible for figures that will be requested by kids of all ages around the world. Not only does he share his experience working at Funko, but he gave us an exclusive first look at The Walking Dead Mystery Minis Series 3:

Preview Pages from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary #5 (of 6)

15 December 2014 11:48 AM, PST

It can be deadly just to cross paths with Pinhead, but to attack the notorious Cenobite and pry the pins from his flesh? Many would consider that to be suicide. But poachers have done just that in Hellraiser: Bestiary, a comic book miniseries from Boom! Studios. The fifth issue hits shelves this Wednesday and sees Pinhead gaining some assistance against his assailants, and we have a set of preview pages that tease what’s ahead.

“Over the past three years, Clive Barker has re-imagined the Hellraiser mythos as only he could, building a long-form narrative that became one of the best-received horror comics in recent memory. Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series—free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences.

Step into the Bestiary for all-new tales of the LeMarchand Device and its guardians!”

New Army of Darkness Posters Unveiled

15 December 2014 9:13 AM, PST

In The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II, viewers saw vacationer-turned-hero Ash Williams take on the blood-splattered horror and demented humor of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis (aka Naturon Demonto) in one creepy cabin, but 1992’s Army of Darkness took Ash back in time to new territory. Skuzzles has collaborated with MGM to create new limited edition posters celebrating the third entry in the horror comedy series.

From Skuzzles: “Attention all primitives. We recently teamed up with MGM Studios to release two beautiful designs for the cult classic film Army of Darkness featuring cult icon Bruce Campbell as Ash–Hail to the king, baby!

Latest Dying Light Video Features the Nighttime Transformations of the Living Dead

15 December 2014 7:47 AM, PST

By day they shamble aimlessly through the littered streets of Harran, but when the sun bleeds out and darkness sets in for another night, the living dead transform into energized, wall-scaling, leaping predators that will hunt and rip into any human unlucky enough to be outside locked doors. The latest video for Dying Light highlights the difference between the zombies’ appearances in the sunlight versus the darkness.
