Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Wes Craven

29 December 2011 6:05 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"To avoid fainting, keep repeating: It's only a movie ... only a movie ... only a movie ..." Of course this was the infamous tagline that accompanied the directorial debut of the man who would become one of the most successful directors the genre has ever seen. Wes Craven helped to mold modern-day horror with his early work, then reinvigorated it when needed the most.

Craven has been in the horror business for four decades, but he may never have been more shocking than in the first two genre films he directed. A script he penned in 1971 entitled Night of Vengeance blew audiences away when it was released as the legendary, trailblazing film The Last House on the Left. And for those who've seen it (and since you're reading Dread Central right now, I'm assuming you have), it should be noted that Craven actually envisioned a much more brutal nightmare with Last House »

MoreHorror Exclusive Interview with World Famous Special Effects Artist Greg Nicotero

25 November 2011 9:47 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Michael Pickle, MoreHorror.com

For all our MoreHorror readers recovering from the tryptophan induced stupor we call Thanksgiving, boy do we have a treat for you. What better way to celebrate the recent release of the Evil Dead II: 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray than to talk to the man behind the special effects and some of the most amazing visuals in horror movie history: the legendary Greg Nicotero.

If you've seen little productions like Day of the Dead, In the Mouth of Madness, From Dusk 'Til Dawn, Scream, The Cell, Masters of Horror, The Mist and most recently The Walking Dead than you are very familiar with his enormous body of work. I was fortunate enough to chat with the man who literally changed the face of horror before he had to run off to celebrate turkey day.

It was impossible to get to all the »

Looking back at Toy Soldiers

8 November 2011 6:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Not a big hit on release in 1991, teen-filled action movie Toy Soldiers has aged surprisingly well. Simon takes a look back…

By the start of the 90s, the action movie was on the cusp of some big changes.

This was the last era of the global action movie superstar, powering their films to massive box office success. Terminator 2 was about to usher in a growing reliance on special effects, and the lure of the computer was something the genre would wrestle with from that point onwards. And that means films such as Toy Soldiers, whilst nothing as dramatic as the last of a dying breed, are really quite rare.

The concept and set-up of this particular film is quite straightforward, and in narrative terms, it’s happy to be conventional. A prologue alerts us to another generic criminal being extradited to America, and we can see that son of said criminal, »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Robert Englund

16 September 2011 1:31 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"You've got the body…I've got the brains." That was the scene that did it for me. We've all got our favorite Freddy Krueger moment ... Nancy in the bathtub, Johnny Depp getting sucked into the bed, the cockroach transformation scene or even "Welcome to prime time, bitch!". But the one that stuck with me was Krueger peeling back the top of his head, revealing a pulsing brain, while reciting that line to a screaming Jesse in A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge.

Thinking back, I can remember sitting in the Gash household with my younger brother (we'll call him Patient Zero), working a remote control that had three buttons and was wired to the Vcr, replaying that scene until the tracking button could no longer control the interference. It was classic.

But whatever your favorite Freddy moment, we have one man to thank for them all. Robert Englund »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Kane Hodder

31 August 2011 11:47 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Who the hell is Kane Hodder? I distinctly remember saying those exact words. Picture it, a young, 14-year old Doctor Gash. Here I was, not even an intern yet, preparing for a visit to my hometown cinema, The Community Theater, to see Jason Voorhees' newest offering, Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood.

And being the burgeoning horror sage I was, I made a point to check out who was playing what role in all my favorite horror movies. I remember looking, probably in my newest edition of Fangoria, and discovered Kane Hodder was playing Jason. And I thought: Who the hell is Kane Hodder?

Little did I know, by the time the early teenaged Doctor Gash was first hearing the name Kane Hodder, Kane had already acted or performed stunt work in 10 major films, including House and House 2: The Second Story, The Hills Have Eyes 2 and even Hardbodies. »

14 May 2011 2:00 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Night of the Living Dead 3D Sequel Now Shooting

30 March 2011 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Jeff Broadstreet is back behind the camera, shooting a sequel to the 2006 re-imagining Night of the Living Dead 3D . Sources tipped us off a couple of weeks ago that Night of the Living Dead 3D 2 was being planned. And recently, those same sources of tll us Jeffrey Combs ( Re-Animator ) and Andrew Divoff ( Wishmaster ) are apparently appearing in the film. Synopsis: After inheriting the family mortuary, a pyrophobic mortician (Divoff) accidentally exposes hundreds of un-cremated bodies to toxic medical waste. As the corpses reanimate, the mortician's inheritance-seeking younger brother (Jeffrey Combs) unexpectedly shows up, stumbling upon a full zombie outbreak! The '06 film starred Sid Haig and Brianna Brown. That redo of the George Romero classic played to audiences in a »

Horror at the Oscars 2011 - Part Two

2 March 2011 10:30 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Rick Baker. Friend of apes. Maker of monsters. Seven time Oscar winner. And that lucky number seven was for The Wolfman, shared with fellow Efx maestro Dave Elsey. Their on-stage speech was great, but the extended Thank You Cam was even better. Both Baker and Elsey thanked Jack Pierce and Dick Smith for inspiring them. Though there were grumblings online that the Academy clip showed the CG transformation rather then the make-up. It is always a treat to see our own getting the gold.

In the best original music category, Trent Reznor won for The Social Network. But who could forget his rivethead contributions to Class of 1999, Se7en, and Tetsuo: The Bullet Man? And Danny Boyle’s nominated 127 Hours didn’t win for Best Picture, but we will always love him “best” for his bloody crazies in the 28 Days series.

Rounding out the highlights in horror cred are nods to Jason X, »

Andrew Divoff Battling Zombies in Night of the Living Dead 3D: Resurrection

12 February 2011 3:10 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Remember back in 2006 there was a 3D remake of Night of the Living Dead called Night of the Living Dead 3D starring the great Sid Haig? Yeah. I know. Some of you would rather forget it, but either way we're getting a sequel.

According to What's Playing Dimensional Dead Productions have tapped Andrew Divoff ("Lost", Wishmaster) as the lead in their prequel/sequel, Night of the Living Dead 3D: Resurrection.

In this upcoming 3D flick, pyrophobic mortician, Gerald Tovar (now played by Divoff instead of Haig), Jr. inherits the family mortuary and accidentally lets hundreds of uncremated bodies become exposed to toxic medical waste. As the corpses re-animate, Harold Tovar, the mortician’s inheritance-seeking younger brother expectantly shows up, stumbling upon a full outbreak of the walking dead.

Brace yourselves.

Lr's The Blu Room: My Soul To Take (Blu-Ray)

11 February 2011 12:07 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

My Soul To Take (Blu-Ray)Universal Home Entertainment2010/Rated R/108 minsList Price $39.98 – Available February 8, 2011Watching Wes Craven's My Soul To Take is like watching one of your favorite filmmakers commit suicide. In Craven's case, it's career suicide. I mean it's unbelievable that a director like him, whose come up with some pretty smart ideas and premises in the horror genre could actually script such a terrible film. I don't want to be mean, since Craven has made some enjoyable movies that would definitely make my desert island collection, but I really can't think of anything positive or salvageable within this ill conceived supernatural tale. I viewed My Soul To Take with some buddies of mine who happen to work in the industry and they couldn't believe something like this could be spawned by Craven. One of them even told me a rumor about the director secretly recovering from heart »

Thursty's Stinky Box Office: The James Cameron Didn't Direct This Edition

4 February 2011 1:30 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

I hope you weren't expecting a weekend less boring than a January weekend, because you're not getting one.  What you are getting is a movie TV commercials are hoping to trick you into thinking James Cameron directed.  He didn't.  You know this, and the ad men probably know you know this, but, hey, why not hope against hope that you're really as dumb as you look? (Spoiler: You look pretty dumb.)

Anyway, if you're burning to see an inspired-by-true-events cave movie withoutthe Killer Cave Monster that makes these sorts of movies interesting, there's something waiting at a theater near you.  I heard it was directed by James Cameron.  Could be good.

You know what?  I can't even remember what the little bugger's called.   Gimme a second.  Ah,that's right.  Sanctum.  Wait.  Sanctum?  That sounds like another exorcism movie.  What a dumb, misleading title.  The title's misleading, and they're consciously misleading us about who directed it. »
