For many horror fans, the word "remake" tends to send chills up the spine more than ghosts, goblins and gore ever could. Intense hatred of remakes is common among the genre community, as an influx of them in the past decade has left fans yearning for the days when filmmakers were still coming up with original ways to scare us. It seems that pretty much every horror movie we love has either already been remade or is on the ol' remake chopping block – to the point where it’s getting hard to rattle off a list of films that haven’t been remade by now. Try it sometime; you might be surprised. That being said, I hope today to instill in you some small sense of comfort by showing you that just because a studio wants to remake a movie, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to happen. »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by XLrator Media. Director: Steven C. Miller. Writer: Eric Stolze. Cast: Jonny Weston, Gattlin Griffith, Peter Holden, Musetta Vander, and Kelcie Stranahan. This film fan has seen each of Steven C. Miller's films. From the zombie flick Automaton Transfusion (2006) to the witchy Scream of the Banshee (2011), Miller's horror films have been varied, especially in quality. His latest is a creature feature titled Under the Bed. This film was developed from Eric Stolze's (I Heart Shakey) script. And, this film is underdeveloped on several levels. Filmed over the course of twelve days, with a minuscule budget, Under the Bed offers very little in the form of a cohesive story and any sense of a creature mythology. This viewer was surprised at how easily the plot for this film could be summed up. Basically, two brothers fight off a creature, »

Director Steven C. Miller is one of the most prolific filmmakers working in (and out) of the horror genre today. To say the guy’s always working would be quite the understatement, and it’s extremely obvious that his talent and abilities grow with each film. No stranger to being a great guy to us at Icons of Fright (see last year’s interview here as well as Aaron’s review), he’s an all around good guy.
His most recent film (in terms of release) is the fun as hell Under The Bed, a movie that on the surface is somewhat of a creature feature, but has some very well written and executed themes in it, dealing with coming to terms with past decisions, fears, and putting your trust in others. Steven was nice enough to chat with us for a bit about the film, along with his goal for the future, »

Here's an interesting little tidbit that's begun floating around the Dread Central offices. Machinima, the fine folks who brought us Mortal Kombat: Legacy, are in the midst of cooking up a web series based on the popular Borderlands video game.
From what we hear, the series is based on the world presented in Borderlands 2. We also hear that one of the game's most notorious characters, Handsome Jack, has already been cast and will be played by Joel Hebner (pictured; Frankenstein Reborn, Automaton Transfusion).
Again, this is just something that's been brought to our attention, and we'll file it under rumor for now. If it does come to fruition, though, you read it here first!
Borderlands 2 is set five years after the events of Borderlands and tells the tale of four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Mordecai, and Brick, who are guided by a mysterious entity known as "The Guardian Angel" to the Vault, »

Director Steven C. Miller who was responsible for helming such genre titles as horror thriller 'The Aggression Scale' and last December's seasonal slasher remake 'Silent Night' has been pitching his new zombie themed venture entitled 'Terminus'. Miller has revealed an intriguing new pitch trailer which will see the filmmaker return to his zombie directorial roots he first worked on in 2006's 'Automaton Transfusion'. He describes the teaser as 'a rip-o-matic trailer that I cut together ... This was designed to give you a taste of the story, along with how I see the mood and atmosphere,'. It features an array of other movies mixed together designed to give a quick cut visual of the style and mood that 'Terminus' will hopefully project. Steven C. Miller's newest horror project 'Under the Bed' is set for release in the Us from 30 July. »
If there’s a filmmaker that has an eye for visual style, it’s Steven C. Miller. Since his debut, 2008′s Automaton Transfusion, Miller has carved a resume of films that has gotten more impressive with time. With the exception of Scream Of The Banshee (I won’t speak of that here), I can definitely get on board with the stuff he does, including the recent Silent Night, and my personal favorite of his, The Aggression Scale. Well, Miller has recently released Granny, a new short film he did, and I haven’t laughed so hard in a good while. Great stuff!
“This is a short film/promo piece I shot for Jamie Kennedy’s company. They had a feature script that execs had a very hard time understanding the tone, so they brought me on board. The feature is basically a very dark horror/comedy in the vein of »
