Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is the next giant monster movie from The Asylum. Riding high on the hype of their previous two mega-monster efforts Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Mega Piranha, the film brings together the female stars of those two movies in a head to head confrontation that fans have been waiting for since the 1980s…
After a species of giant python invades the everglades, park workers breed mutant gators to counter the threat. Soon, the battle between giant pythons and mutant gators threatens all of Florida.
In anticipation of the films debut next month, Syfy have released four new clips from the film:
Directed by Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary 1 and 2, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary), Mega Python vs. Gatoroid stars former pop stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson and sees Gibson play a fanatical animal-rights activist who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades, »
Syfy has a gift for all of us this Christmas: four exclusive clips from Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. Warring gargantuan reptiles: truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Mega Python vs. Gatoroid: A smackdown so titanic it could not happen until Syfy's and The Asylum's wonder twin powers combined. A January 29th premiere date has been set.
Starring Eighties pop singers Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, both survivors of previous Asylum "mega" movies, in this tale a fanatical animal rights activist unleashes giant pythons into the Florida Everglades, forcing a distraught park ranger to fight back by feeding alligators steroids to eventually create one stupendous "gatoroid".
The first clip appears to be Tiffany's Emmy "For Your Consideration" reel. Just 1:28 of the former teen pop singer turned "mega" actress doing Susan Lucci melodramatics to the max as she repeatedly screams "They ruined everything!" at the old lady from "Desperate Housewives".
Back in the 1980s people had a really bad habit of making adaptations of every Stephen King book. Sure, we all remember The Shining, Stand By Me, and Pet Sematary as success stories, but not all of them were exactly immediate classics. One such movie was Firestarter, a film starring a very young Drew Barrymore as a a young girl who can set fires with her mind. The movie was a one-off, making only a little more than its budget back at the box office, but modern day producers don't see things like that. Variety reports that Universal is now planning to bring back the King property and, what's more, they're planning to turn it into a franchise. Mark L. Smith, who wrote the 2007 Luke Wilson-Kate Beckinsale starrer Vacancy, will write the script adaptation. The new movie is expected to be loosely based on the original King story, »
"Shambles" is truly the operative word here, as in "state of total disorder". In Pet Sematary Jud Crandall taught us that sometimes dead is better. And while we love everything zombie here at Dread Central, in the case of this latest iPhone app, it appears as if dead is definitely better on a console.
Below you'll find the press release and a couple of really ugly stills for Capcom's Dead Rising mobile edition, which looks about as good as a first generation PlayStation game. Seriously, we know all about graphical limitations and all, but why is Frank's head so small?

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola in the third of a five-part feature... read parts one and two.
“The success of The Godfather  went to my head like a rush of perfume. I thought I couldn’t do anything wrong,” admitted Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola who decided to produce a $23 million romantic fantasy. “One from the Heart  suffered from the perception of me as some wild, egomaniac Donald Trump type of guy, and once they think about you that way, it’s just so many months before you’re brought down.” A middle class couple (Frederic Forrest and Teri Garr) split up and head off to Las Vegas where they encounter fanciful lovers. “I wanted to take a fable-like story and treat it almost the way [Walt] Disney would approach a story in his animated films,” explained the filmmaker. “If we had made the movie in Las Vegas, »
We’re a funny bunch, us horror fans. Of all the emotions we experience watching our beloved freak shows, sadness usually ain’t one of ‘em. It’s hard to want to hug someone when they’re spitting up stage blood all over your screen, but every so often genuine empathy can be aroused in our hardened hearts for certain cinematic victims. So, without getting too heavy about things, I’m in the strange mood to pay tribute to a few:
Characters I Genuinely Felt Sorry For
Freddy the Photographer – Dead & Buried
Oh, Freddy… I hope wherever you wound up that they’re taking good care of you. Freddy the Photographer visits the funky town of Potter’s Bluff and is almost immediately jumped by a gaggle of villagers and burned at a makeshift stake. Then they trash his car and stuff him in it, upside down. Then when the »

Last year's thriller Orphan really upped the Evil Kid ante with "Esther," who caused all kinds of murder and mayhem. When that behavior includes beating a nun to death with a hammer, that's pretty evil.
But clearly trying to top her is Case 39's "Lilith" — played by Jodelle Ferland, building on her creepy kid behavior in Tideland. By the looks of the trailer, she could be the homicidal spawn of Esther and Damien. We survey Lilith's evil kid competition through the ages, highlighting these little monsters' Groundable Behavior and doling out wooden spoons with our Spanking Index.

Author takes role in Us drama serial about outlaw motorcycle club
The bestselling author plays a character named Bachman – King wrote a number of his horror novels under the pen name Richard Bachman – who is described in the show's official announcement as "highly skilled in an unusual profession". The television series, about an outlaw motorcycle club in the fictional town of Charming, California, has just started its third season in the Us (King appears in the third episode) and is currently showing its second series in the UK.
King was asked to take part after writing a positive column about the show for Entertainment Weekly. "I like the show, it's one of those shows which seems to have gotten better as it goes along, »

What a joy it is to see certain absurdities in life and perspective and truth as filtered through the vision of Errol Morris. The documentarian is well known for his particular style of filmmaking, the kind that mixes interviews and information with a distinct cinematic style. If he can keep his subjects talking, they are bound to say just about anything, as was the case in The Thin Blue Line when a murderer who got away with his crime eventually confesses to the director in an interview. I also have a particular fondness for the types of things he obsesses on, such as a 15000 word essay on two photos of cannon balls on a roadway from the Crimean war. Then there is his documentary on a Pet Cemetery and its customers. The man has range, which brings us to... Bondage, Beauty Queens, Kidnapping, Mormons and Dog Cloning - how do they all connect? »

I know I said I was going to foam at the mouth about the Cinema God known as Roger Corman this month, but it’s my column and I changed my mind. We’ll talk Corman next month or two.
August 20-22 saw the 15th Monster-Mania Con take place at the Crowne Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ. There are several around the Ne portion of the Us held under this name and in March and August they hit NJ and attract any number of sci-fi and horror fans all looking for that elusive big name autograph or, in my case, the not so big names. I love the chance to talk to the stars one on one, since the Huge names never afford you that opportunity because they are the main focus and draw the fullest lines.

We've just gotten an early word that Mary Lambert has signed up to direct a new film titled The Lycanthropist that promises a whole new take on one of our favorite monsters - werewolves!
Writer and producer Blu de Golyer has described The Lycanthropist as more of an "intelligent thriller" rather than an all out monster movie. The synopsis for the film seems to suggest the werewolf at large may exist more in the realm of reality than in fiction; this may be a film involving delusion and psychosis rather than the full board lycanthrope of myth and legend.
Mary Lambert is best known to horror fans as the director behind the classic Pet Sematary . She's never really slowed down, and is currently in pre-production for another film she is directing, High Midnight, which involves vampires and other undead in the wild old west.
The Lycanthropist is just warming up and is working on casting. »
