Cats are hearty animals, man, and you’re about to hear a tale (tail?) of one tough little sonovabitch. Bart, a young cat in Tampa, Florida, was buried alive by its owner, who thought he was dead after getting hit by… Continue Reading →

It.s only a matter of time before we get Blair Witch 3. Why wouldn.t we? It seems like every classic horror film from It to Pet Sematary to Poltergeist is getting remade, and the rest are getting new installments or a TV show. (We.re looking at you, Halloween and Scream.) So when Blair Witch co-director Eduardo Sanchez was asked about whether another continuation of his found-footage horror film was in the cards, he confirmed what we.re all thinking: probably. Though it was mainly about his new Bigfoot movie Exists, a phone interview between Sanchez and Dread Central unearthed this information: The film seems inevitable to me, but really it.s just a matter of it being the right time. I.m thinking it.s going to happen sooner than later at this point, but I always say that. There.s always rumblings and certain ideas being pushed »
Start your new year off with a scare courtesy of The Lazarus Effect. The first trailer for the horror movie has hit the web and boy, is it spooky.
Olivia Wilde stars as medical student Zoe whom, along with her team of fellow doctor wannabes devise a way to brings dogs back from the dead. But who wants to spend their time re-animating canines? With their eyes on the bigger prize, the team of students end up bringing one of their own back from the dead, only to inevitably discover that their loved one isn’t the same as evil now courses through her veins.
The Lazarus Effect seems to have studied the scariest (and best) elements of Flatliners and Pet Sematary and created a brand new terrifying mix that will jolt audiences out of their seats in fright. The film features a great cast of fan-pleasing actors including indie »

It’s typically frustrating when acclaimed documentary filmmakers make the leap to fiction. After all, not everyone can mix up the real and make believe as well as Werner Herzog. Even Errol Morris, Joe Berlinger and Barbara Kopple had trouble making the switch. Plus, we need those great documentarians to make more great documentaries. But, alas, they need to make some money, too. I like David Gelb a lot, and I love his breakthrough, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, so I’m reserving most of my judgment of his upcoming horror film, The Lazarus Effect, until I see it. And even if it’s as bad as it looks, I’ll still be hopeful that the filmmaker made enough cash to deliver another nonfiction gem. The Lazarus Effect, which shouldn’t be itself confused for a doc from a few years ago about HIV and AIDS in Africa, seems to be a mix of Pet Sematary and Luc Besson »
