The Drive-In? Whoop-doo!Boos! & Whoop-doos!: A Decade of Glossy Schlock! The Aughts ushered in a new era of glossy schlock that rose quietly from the ashes of the once burgeoning Drive-In scene. The Drive-In Theater has always stood as a temple for exploitive, low-grade cinema. But by 1999, even the most popular of these late night playgrounds had crumbled to dust. They rose to prominence in the late forties and early fifties, and then experienced a quaint resurgence in the late 70s and early 80s. By the time this decade kicked off to shouts of "Y2K", they had all been wiped clean off the face of the Cineplex landscape. But their aura and mystic still lingered around many a DVD shelf like a ploom of stink bomb smoke. If there's one lasting remnant the Drive-In era gave us, it's the Z-grade flick. The second run feature whose only purpose »
Some new stills crept online today for Joel Schumacher's Blood Creek (review here) to help celebrate the January 19th, 2010 DVD release of the film from Lionsgate. Purcell in bones shackles? Ok. We're there.
From the Press Release
Acclaimed director Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys, Tigerland) takes the reins of Blood Creek, a tense supernatural horror-thriller concerning two brothers who find themselves at the center of a terrifying occult experiment. In 1936, the Wollners, a German family living in Town Creek, West Virginia, are contacted by the Third Reich to host a visiting scholar. In need of money, they accept Professor Richard Wirth into their home, unaware of the Third Reich's practices in the occult and Wirth's real mission that will keep the family bound for decades to come. After 71 years, in 2007, Evan Marshall's life has stalled at 25 years old when he is left without answers after his older brother Victor's »

As Sundance Twentyten approaches, we'll be posting mini-previews with photos from some of the films we're looking forward to over the next month and a half. Last week we posted the first photos from Hesher, I Love Sarah Jane director Spencer Susser’s Feature Debut. Today I bring you the first photos from Joel Schumacher's Twelve, which is screening as the Closing Night Film in the Sundance Film Festival Premieres section. From a filmmaker who has given us such diverse films as The Lost Boys, The Phantom of the Opera, Flatliners, A Time To Kill, Batman Forever, Phone Booth and 8mm comes a new drama chronicling of the highs and lows of privileged kids on Manhattan's Upper East Side, in a tale that involves sex, drugs and murder. Written by Jordan Melamed (the director of 2001's Maniac), the story follows a young drug dealer who watches as his high-rolling »

Corey Feldman is fighting back in his divorce battle - the actor wants custody of his son.
The Lost Boys star split from his wife Susie, who filed for divorce and full custody of the couple's five-year-old son, Zen, in October.
Feldman has now filed papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court challenging his wife's petition and seeking joint custody of the youngster. The actor has also asked the court to block Susie's demand for spousal support, according to TMZ.com.
The couple was together for almost seven years and announced the split shortly before their wedding anniversary on 30 October. »
Okay. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past year, you've heard all about the Twilight phenomenon. The throngs of screaming girls subsided briefly, only to be thriving once again with the release of New Moon. What I find the most fascinating is that the media is acting like the "vampire phenomenon" is a new thing. That couldn't be further from the truth. Hello? Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, The Lost Boys, Interview with a Vampire and of course Dracula. I have been an avid reader, like many women, of paranormal romance for years. As an author of paranormal romance I am particularly fascinated by Ms. Meyer's unique take on vampires. She took a risk by straying from the traditional vampire lore and it paid off big time. She created an entirely »

In hindsight, you really can’t blame Joel Schumacher for destroying the Batman franchise by giving Bats and Robin perky rubber nipples. Oh wait. Yes you can. Ol Joel has been quietly making a bit of a comeback of late, with movies like “The Number 23″ and “The Phantom of the Opera”. His latest is “Blood Creek”, formerly “Town Creek”. After sitting on Lionsgate’s shelves for the last two years, the film is finally getting a very limited theatrical release in bargain locales (good luck finding it, though), and will be headed to DVD January 19, 2010. Check out a Red Band trailer and poster for it below. Acclaimed director Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys, Tigerland) takes the reins of Blood Creek, a tense supernatural horror-thriller concerning two brothers who find themselves at the center of a terrifying occult experiment.

Arriving on DVD January 19th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment is Joel Schumacher's long-delayed Nazi fueled horror opus, Blood Creek (review here), and we've got a trailer for your perusal. Goose-step your way into this story to check it out!

Two photos from Warner Bros. comic book adaptation The Losers have made their way online.
The film’s log line is as follows:
After being betrayed and left for dead, members of a CIA black ops team root out those who targeted them for assassination.
Click the images to enlarge.
Whilst the comic itself is quite cool and the talented cast includes Jeffery Dean Morgan (Watchmen), Idris Elba (RocknRolla), Chris Evans (Sunshine), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys), and Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid), I have been very skeptical about this project since Sylvain White took over directing duties.
If you are not familiar with White’s work, he is the man responsible for the atrocities known as Stomp the Yard and I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. I will reserve judgement on The Losers until I actually watch the film, or at least a trailer, »

It appears as if our prayers have been answered friends, and werewolves will be following vampires in the great 'classic monsters rebirth' cycle of this century. Universal is hitting hard with The Wolf Man early next year, and there are remakes of An American Werewolf in London and An American Werewolf in Paris are being whispered about in the halls of Hollywood. The only potential downside to all of this is if the Twilight effect kicks in, and future werewolf movies are stripped of their grit and given a glossy, teen-targeted look. Insert the potentially problematic premise of The Howling: Reborn, announced today via Variety. Indie producers Joel Kastelberg and Etchie Stroh are setting up a remake of the 1981 Joe Dante film, which followed a news anchor being stalked by a killer who turns out to be a werewolf. This new film will follow more of a Gossip Girl meets Twilight, with »

Warner Home Video just announced a new program where you can upgrade several of your DVD titles to Blu-ray for as low as $7.95, and right now the price doesn't go any higher than $9.95. This is a similar program to the Red2Blu offer they made allowing customers to upgrade their HD DVD titles to Blu-ray, a program I actually took advantage of and loved it as a result.
The process to upgrade is simple. Consumers select the titles they want to upgrade on DVD2Blu.com, mail in their standard DVDs with pre-paid postage and a short time later receive copies of the same film on Blu-ray Disc. Consumers who place orders over $25 will receive free shipping. For a complete list of titles visit DVD2Blu.com, but I have included the most recent list of titles and prices directly below. 10,000 B.C. ($9.95) Rush Hour 3 ($9.95) Full Metal Jacket ($9.95) Pan's »

Warner Bros. has announced a DVD to Blu-ray upgrade program. While the list doesn’t include all their titles, it’s at least a start. According to WB, the process to upgrade is simple. Consumers select the titles they want to upgrade on DVD2Blu.com, mail in their standard DVDs with pre-paid postage and a short time later receive copies of the same film on Blu-ray Disc. If you mail in one DVD, it’s $7.95 plus shipping. If you order more than $25, you’ll receive free shipping.
While some people haven’t been converted to Blu-ray, I’m all in. I think the picture quality is amazing on Blu-ray and I definitely see a difference between DVD and the HD format. All I can say is, if you have an 1080p TV, the format is absolutely worth the investment. For a complete list of what WB is willing to »

Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, rock band Skillet recently released their seventh studio album, entitled Awake, which features the single "Monster". Skillet is currently on tour, but lead singer John Cooper took some time out to write a Top Ten list of his favorite monsters, both in the movies and real life, and has offered to share it exclusively with Dread Central's readers.
1. The Alien - This is one of my favorite movies of all time and the scariest monster ever made as far as I'm concerned.
2. Darth Vader - Not necessarily a "monster" but my favorite villain anyway. His costume, voice, and breathing are absolutely legendary.
3. The Predator - I love the Predator because you watch half of the movie without seeing what he looks like. Then, when you think you have seen it all, he takes his mask off and beats the crap out of Arnold. "Get to the chopper! »

Eminem is to star in a new horror movie and an accompanying comic book series.
The project, to be called Shady Talez, is due out in 2011, as was recently revealed by horror site Shock Till You Drop.
The plan is for the film to be an anthology, containing several stories inspired by classics such as Christine, Aliens and The Lost Boys.
Eminem is to put "his own dark spin on the genre, playing multiple characters and introducing new stories to the new horror generation."
ScreenDaily now adds that the movie - which is the rapper's first feature since 2002's 8 Mile - will be in 3D.

Yes, you read that right – Lost Boys 4…
Despite a critical mauling it received the Lost Boys sequel subtitled The Tribe released last year did well enough to warrant a third film in the series, which you can read about here.
It seems we’re overrun with vampire franchises these days, and certainly each generation reinvents the myth and twenty years ago we had the seminal 80s flick The Lost Boys, and thanks to the lure of the nostalgia market we’ll be seeing a Lost Boys film every year from now until the end of time.
So says MovieWeb, who in their conversations with Messrs Haim and Feldman, confirmed that while Haim wont’ be joining Feldman’s Edgar Frog in Lb 3 he will return to reunite the team in the fourth film, though with a difference (which keen viewers of Lost Boys 2 will know about).
This is perfect news for »

Aww shit dawg! Eminem, aka Marshall Mathers, will star in Shady Talez, his first feature film in seven years (though he did appear briefly in Judd Apatow's Funny People earlier this year). The project, with a style described as "The Twilight Zone meets Creepshow," is a new 3D anthology horror film. Marvel will be publishing a four-issue comic book series based on Shady Talez in 2010 as well. Mathers will produce and star in multiple roles in the film, which will give an "urban wink" to genre classics such as Christine, Aliens, and The Lost Boys. The film is being produced by the newly formed D.J. Classicz/Davis Entertainment. According to Screen Daily, where this news comes from, the script for Shady Talez is being co-written by Dallas Jackson (who is also writing The Last Dragon remake for Sony) and Kevin Grevioux (creator of the Underworld franchise). They didn't reveal much else, »

Nationwide, Juggalos are already boycotting in parking lots, in addition to breeding. Eminem, the 37-year-old adolescent rapper, will follow up his $116 million grossing fictionalized biopic, 8 Mile, from 2002 with a 3D anthology horror movie horrifically entitled Shady Talez. The project has kicked around for a while, and is now part of a synergy package that includes a same-named four-issue comic book series due 2010 from Marvel Icons. The above image comes from that. Slim Shady will produce and star in multiple roles in the film, which will give an "urban wink" to genre classics such "as Christine, Aliens, and The Lost Boys" in the style of George Romero's Creepshow. What, no characteristic ode to Irreversible or Twisted Nerve? A director was not announced. According to Screen Daily, the script is being written by co-producer Dallas Jackson (Uncle P starring Master P, The Last Dragon remake) and Kevin Grevioux, who created the »

Sounding like a female version of The Lost Boys, We Are The Night comes from The Wave director Dennis Gansel and Rat Pack Filmproduktion. The Berlin-based female vampire drama stars Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss, Jennifer Ulrich, Anna Fischer and Max Riemelt. Here's the plot crunch: When Lena is bitten by the leader of a female vampire trio, she instantly succumbs to her newfound lifestyle but the blood lust of her comrades ultimately proves too much for her to take. In love with an undercover cop, Lena decides to turn her back on the bloodsuckers igniting their fury. The film was written by Gansel and Jan Berger and is produced by Christian Becker. Principal photography began in Berlin on October 11 and is slated to wrap mid-December. »
