9 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, Brian Trenchard-Smith rediscovers another dark Brit drama about the death penalty, "Let Him Have It," starring Christopher Eccleston as the real-life murderer of a policeman. The hangman Albert Pierrepoint (of "Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman") makes a small but important appearance in Peter Medek’s 1991 film about the controversial 1953 execution of Derek Bentley for the murder of a policeman (even though Bentley merely egged on the actual shooter with the phrase, “Let him have it.”) The film stars Christopher Eccleston as the doomed Bentley, Tom Courtenay as his father and a supporting cast featuring a who’s who of British character actors including Edward Hardwicke (Watson of BBC’s "Sherlock Holmes"), Michael Gough ("Horror of Dracula") and Clive Revill ("The Legend of Hell House") as the executioner Pierrepoint.

Even though Bentley's words " Let him have it " were ambiguous when the policeman demanded the shooter hand over the gun, the jury, under prejudicial instruction from the judge, decided the words meant "Shoot him!"

Scream Factory Overload; Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror and The Doctor and the Devils on Blu-ray Plus Summer of Fear Special Events!

2 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A whole bunch of Scream Factory goodness was dropped into our inbox this morning, so let's forgo the usual chit-chat and cut right to the chase!

First up, the world's greatest distribution company announced on their Facebook page that they're bringing three titles to Blu-ray for the very first time this coming fall, kicking off with a double feature release of 1972's Tales from the Crypt and 1973's The Vault of Horror.

The two classic British anthology films will be housed together as a double feature on Blu-ray (both for the first time) and Vault will be presented in its uncut form.

Also announced was the 1985 grave robber thriller The Doctor and the Devils, which was produced by Mel Brooks and stars Timothy Dalton, Patrick Stewart, Stephen Rea, Jonathan Pryce…and even Twiggy!

No dates have been set in stone, but both discs will arrive sometime in the fall.

In the meantime, »

Real pregnancy is horrific enough, am I right, ladies?

Horror's 7 Most Haunting Houses

27 May 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Aside from The Return of… or The Revenge of…, there may be no more beloved horror titles than those involving The House…. There is something very mysterious and foreboding about a mysterious house containing all kinds of unknown horrors.

Shout Factory has released a new entry on the list with House in the Alley arising today, May 27th. The obscure Vietnamese horror pic is sure to pique the interest of fans and follow in the footsteps of some of the freaky House-themed films of the past…which leads us to our newest Top List: Horror's 7 Most Haunting Houses.

Make no mistake; we aren't necessarily talking about 'haunted houses' here, but 'haunting houses,' meaning movies with House in the title that did a wonderful job of scaring the hell out of us. We'll begin with some honorable mentions to get the ball rolling.

The Legend of Hell House Being Reiterated

1 May 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

One of the greatest tales of terror ever told, Richard Matheson's Hell House was turned into a movie entitled The Legend of Hell House back in 1973. If you haven't see it... do yourselves a favor... track it down Now and watch it before the remake comes. Speaking of which...

Shock Till You Drop is reporting that 20th Century Fox is getting set to revisit that hellish setting once again with a fresh remake. Fox has been trying to get this project off the ground since 2007, but apparently with the success of film's like The Conjuring, their interest has been more than renewed. As of this writing there's still no director or writer attached. Stay tuned.

In Hell House, Rolf Rudolph Deutsch is going die. But when Deutsch, a wealthy magazine and newpaper publisher, starts thinking seriously about his impending death, he offers to pay a physicist and two mediums, »

Exclusive: The Legend of Hell House Next Up for Remake Again?

1 May 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

This seems like a no-brainer if you're a studio exec looking to cash-in on the latest supernatural craze that's happening in Hollywood, but I've been hearing the last two weeks that The Legend of Hell House is up for a remake again. No writer or director have been set. If you recall, back in 2007 when 20th Century Fox had its Fox Atomic banner, the 1973 film was being mulled over for an update.
