Zombi 3 (1988) - News Poster



‘Vault of Horror – The Italian Connection’ coming this December from Demon Records

During the early 60’s to the mid 80’s Italian horror was in its heyday – directors such as Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Antonio Margheriti, Umberto Lenzi, Joe D’Amato, and Enzo. G. Castellari directed some of the most outrageous terror films ever. Films that, at the time, pushed boundaries, depicting some of the most stylish and horrific on screen images. But at the same time these films included some of the most elegant and beautiful scores, scores which gained a cult following then and to this day – and they remain as popular now as they’ve ever been.

In comes Vault of Horror – The Italian Connection from Demon Records…

Featuring twenty of the most amazing film Italian genre themes ever, it is a heady mix of funk, disco, electronic and prog rock; featuring composers such as Stelvio Cipriani, Franco Micalizzi, Roberto Donati, Carlo Rustichelli, Nico Fidenco, Ennio Morricone, Fabio Frizzi,

A bacteriological weapon developed by the Us Government to create a super soldier - spreads an epidemic in a quiet little town in the middle of Eastern Europe.

Troll 2 Blu-ray Review

Troll 2 Directed by: Claudio Fragasso Written by: Rossella Drudi and Claudio Fragasso Starring: George Hardy, Michael Paul Stephenson, Robert Ormsby, Margo Prey, Connie Young I took my first trip to Nilbog just a few years ago, when my friends Katie, Nuno and Erin hosted a Halloween party that included Troll 2 as the main event. At the time, I thought they might be somewhat unique in their undying love for this movie, and I wasn't completely aware of its reputation or rabid fanbase. I knew only that it was a strange, mostly forgotten b-movie that fell under the category of "so bad it's good". Needless to say, after one watch it became very clear why people are so obsessed with this film, and now, thanks to actor Michael Paul Stephenson's wonderful documentary Best Worst Movie, Troll 2 and the story behind its production have since become the stuff of legend.

Top 10: Outbreak Movies

With The Crazies (review here) remake bursting down our door, I thought it would be a good opportunity for Dread Central to look back at some of the most memorable virus/outbreak movies of the genre’s past. It’s a slippery slope when determining what constitutes a viral plague versus a standard zombie apocalypse, but I boiled my criteria down to one basic rule: The carnage must be driven by an infection, and re-animated corpses crawling out of the dirt need not apply.

Here goes nothing. And make sure to join me in the discussion below. Part of the reason I enjoy making these lists so much is to hear what other like-minded horror fans think. What did I miss? What shouldn’t have been included (I can hear some of those now)?

Sure, it’s a strange world where a Mick Garris film snags a spot on any top ten list,

Exclusive pic, comments on Italian-influenced Bio-dead

Writer/director Stephen J. Hadden sent along the exclusive makeup FX photo seen below and some info on his new fright feature Bio-dead. The pic features actor Derek Long, recently seen in Socket, in the midst of a sequence in which prosthetics “were applied to his face and torso to simulate knife wounds, burns and a gouged-out eye,” Hadden tells us.

Long stars in Bio-dead as Benson, leader of a hazmat team sent to search for survivors after terrorists unleash a lethal toxic weapon into the atmosphere over Southern California. Deep within the uninhabitable region known as “The Zone,” they come across what appears to be an empty building, but after venturing inside, they soon find themselves being stalked by a vicious predator, while suffering from frightening hallucinations.

Bio-dead was inspired by my love for postapocalyptic cinema, especially the films made by the Italians in the early 1980s,” Hadden says.
