So the 5th annual Rock and Shock convention in Worcester, Ma has come and gone and I have to say, this show keeps getting better and better as its reputation grows and word spreads about it.
The big draw for this year’s show was Lost Boys star Corey Haim, who was joined by Aliens and Terminator badass Michael Biehn, a Hellraiser reunion that included Doug Bradley, Ashley Laurence, Simon Bamford and Barbie Wilde, Rock and Shock alum Jack Ketchum, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran, Waxwork star Zach Galligan, and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper . That’s a damn fine lineup and actually only a partial list of horror luminaries fans finally got the chance to have some face time with.
Friday night started way too early, at least for those of us who were helping out the ever-diligent Nomad get the Dread Central table ready, but overall the crowd was kickin »

Fangoria recently caught up with director Anthony Hickox and talked about the upcoming DVD release of his somewhat "lost" video cult classic Sundown: The Vampire In Retreat (which starred Bruce Campbell, David Carradine and Deborah Foreman). Lionsgate is releasing the DVD on September 23rd (according to Dread Central), but Michael Felsher and his Red Shirt Pictures is providing the supplementary material. Among the disc's goodies will be a first-time-ever widescreen transfer of the film, a commentary by Hickox and cinematographer Levie Issacks, and interviews with stars Bruce Campbell and David Carradine.
When asked about a potential remake to my personal fave Hickox movie Waxwork, he tells Fangoria it's possible. "The guy who owns the rights to it is dying to remake it, but he doesn’t get along with one of the other producers from the original. However, I’m sure they will work something out.

Veteran British horror director Anthony Hickox revealed today that his popular 1988 horror flick Waxwork is being prepped for a remake. The guy who owns the rights to it is dying to remake it, but he doesnt get along with one of the other producers from the original, the director tells Fango. However, Im sure they will work something out. If they do that, it still needs to be campy - and the mummy would have to move a lot faster than it did in mine! If they do get it going, my only request is to do a cameo appearance. In the original starring Zach Galligan (Gremlins), a wax museum owner uses his horror exhibits to unleash evil on the world. »
