Between Return to House on Haunted Hill and The Hills Run Red , there was some rumbling that Dark Castle Entertainment was mulling over a few projects for the direct-to-dvd market, including a third Haunted Hill and a cheerleader/slasher film. None of those came to pass and for good reason as producer Joel Silver told us over the weekend. "That business fell off a cliff, pretty much, particularly in the horror area," he revealed. "That used to be a lucrative business and we had great success in our DVD releases of our horror releases. Gothika was huge, enormous business. But all of those DVDs, for our movies or direct-to-dvd releases... Orphan which did very well only did a fraction on DVD. If the business rises, we'll think about it." Silver »
We'll do a bit more digging on this and reach out to Wes Craven's camp, but for now, Clint at Moviehole is reporting that Warner Bros. is mulling over another Deadly Friend . Here's what Clint says: "Deadly Friend 2.0 is in the works - writers are toying with the concept now, producers are racking their brains trying to think who'd be an ideal proxy for Kristy Swanson (Hmmm... pretty robot girl... Kristen Stewart!?) and Warner Bros are likely hoping their Re-Animator-esque horror redo lends itself to a shitty 3D overlay." This smells like pure "Warner Premiere" fodder. That's the label that gave us Lost Boys: The Tribe and the upcoming Lost Boys 3 . Warner Premiere also released Trick 'r Treat and The Hills Run Red . But that's just speculation on »

A good chunk of it features plenty of creature footage from Adam Gierasch's Night of the Demons and it wraps up with the early promo Dave Parker shot for The Hills Run Red as well as Saw . We hesitated to run the Demons footage in fear that it might be too spoiler-y. But those involved in the project said it was cool to share with you!

It seems like just yesterday we told you about the lesbian vampire flick Pearblossom undergoing a name change to Life Blood upon being acquired by Lionsgate for a DVD release later this year. That's probably because we did publish that story just yesterday. That was yesterday. Today we can tell you the DVD release date: April 27th.
"Forty years ago a supernatural force vanquished Brooke and Rhea, a sexy lipstick lesbian couple, after they committed an inconceivable murder. Now, on New Year's Eve, they'll rise from the dead. Still hot and still a couple, they're back as vampires. Enamored with their newfound power, it's no longer a question of whether they will kill again, but of how."
Sophie Monk (Date Movie, The Hills Run Red), Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie's Halloween franchise), and Charles Napier (The Silence Of The Lambs, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard) star in Ron Carlson's sexy Sapphic fangfest. »
A title change has occurred for Lionsgate's new vampire-fest once known as Pearblossom. When the flick hits home later this year, its new title will be (the much better, yet still kind of generic) Life Blood.
The film stars Sophie Monk (The Hills Run Red), Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie's Halloween I & II), Patrick Renna (Dark Ride), Electra Avellan (Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse), Danny Woodburn (Watchmen), and Charles Napier (The Silence Of The Lambs).
It's New Year's Eve, 1968: While driving on the Pearblossom Highway, a lesbian couple (played by Sophie Monk and Anya Lahiri) find themselves face to face with the creator of the universe (played by Victoria's Secret supermodel Angela Lindvall). Laid to rest for 40 years, the women wake up on New Year's Day as reborn creatures. Now, they walk the earth fighting in the eternal battle of good and evil, not always certain which side they are on. »

Bleiberg Entertainment has recently picked up the rights for Life Blood aka Murder World aka Pearlblossom. The film will be distributed through Lionsgate Entertainment and the film has a very off center plotline. "A lesbian couple" meet their creator of the universe, sometimes known as God, who are summoned to fight the forces of evil, and sometimes the good (Bleiberg). The reviews that are available have labeled the film creative and with an intro' like that, the film must be something off the wall. An exact release date is not certain, but expect to see this one on DVD in 2010 (a prediction). Further details inside.
A synopsis for Life Blood here:
"It's New Year's Eve, 1968: While driving on the Pearblossom Highway, a lesbian couple (played by Sophie Monk of "The Hills Run Red" and Anya Lahiri) find themselves face to face with the creator of the universe (Angela Lindvall). Laid to rest for 40 years, »

2009. It was pretty much as crappy a year for horror movies as it was for the economy. There were, however, some really high points to help balance out all the drivel that was put out there in theatres as well as on home video, and they are to be celebrated, even though technically a couple of them are not even from this year.
Pull up your chair, sit back, and strap yourself in for a look back at the dos, the don'ts, and of course the "Doh!"s of this past year.

District 9 - Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi/action/horror hybrid delivered the kind of hardcore testosterone roller coaster ride we hadn’t seen since the glory days of John McTiernan. With story and special FX superior to that of »
