Exclusive: Michael Rooker Talks Hypothermia!

3 October 2012 4:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Michael Rooker Talks Hypothermia, on DVD today!

We're huge Michael Rooker fans here, so when the opportunity came up to chat with him for a half an hour this past Sunday, we jumped on it. The actor currently has a lot going on in his career, including this week's DVD release of the creature feature on ice, Hypothermia. In it, Rooker stars as a family man forced to protect his wife and kids against a snow dwelling monster hellbent on consuming human flesh.

He also has Season 3 of The Walking Dead coming up in October, which finds him reprising the fan favorite role of Merle Dixon, not seen since Season 1. And he is playing one of the main characters in the popular video game franchise Call of Duty, which returns this November with Black Ops 2. And, just maybe, he will take on the voice of Rocket Raccoon in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. »

Sometimes They Come Back

Stars: Tim Matheson, Brooke Adams, Robert Rusler | Written by Stephen King, Lawrence Konner | Directed by Tom McLoughlin

Originally released in 1991 at what, at the time, seemed to be the height of the Stephen King adaptation frenzy following the success of 1989′s Pet Sematary, Sometimes They Come Back, originally made for Us television, was released straight to video here in the UK and was so successful that it spawned two sequels, one in 1996 and one in 1999.

Now making it’s UK DVD debut, Sometimes They Come Back tells the story of teacher Jim Norman (Matheson) who reluctantly returns to his hometown to take a job at the local school almost 30 years after he left. Bad memories linger in the town where his brother Wayne was killed by a local rebel gang and he escaped unharmed. Those responsible died in fiery car wreck, but sometimes the dead aren »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Stephen King Part 2

6 April 2012 3:32 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"My name is Anne Wilkes. And I am..." "I know," he said. "You're my number-one fan." "Yes," she said, smiling. "That's just what I am."

How many times had Stephen King heard that from his millions of number-one fans before he finally turned the obsessive love of his Constant Readers into the subject of one of his most memorable, horrific and claustrophobic works, Misery? Before taking a short break to honor Debbie Rochon and The Blair Witch Project with Tips of the Scalpel for Indie Horror Month, we brought you Stephen King, Part 1. Now we're back to continue the story with Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: Stephen King, Part 2: The 80's.

The start of King's career was prolific, beginning with Carrie, Salem's Lot and The Shining, but the incredible amount of legendary horror that King produced throughout his life is simply mind-boggling. King created nearly two-dozen stories that »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: George A. Romero

10 February 2012 1:25 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"They're coming to get you, Barbra. There's one of them now!" And with those words, it began. The zombie apocalypse, whether it's in Pennsylvania, Atlanta, or anywhere else in the world, originated in the Evans City Cemetery 30 miles north of Pittsburgh in Night of the Living Dead when Bill Hinzman shuffled into frame.

As we sadly say farewell to Hinzman, zombie infected patient zero (and also Josephine Streiner who greatly contributed to the film), we honor the man who single-handedly began the undead infestation: the great George A. Romero.

As influential as all our favorite directors have been ... Wes Craven, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper ... it's arguable that no one has brought more to the horror genre than Romero. Sure, each of these directors gave us some iconic character, no less than Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers and Leatherface, but Romero gave us zombies. Not a specific zombie (although Bub from Day of the Dead »
