The year is 1979 and you are camp counselors who are being stalked through a maze of cabins and camp trails by Otis, a homicidal killer that wears a bear mask. Welcome to Camp Grizzly, a survival horror board game that has already reached its goal on Kickstarter and has more than doubled it.
I knew this was something that Daily Dead readers would be really excited to learn more about, so I got in touch with Jason Peter Topolski and Austin Madison of Ameritrash Games to learn all about their project. Continue reading to find out how this game evolved from an idea they had in high school in the 90′s, what the extra Kickstarter funds will bring to the final product, future release plans, and their interest in a Camp Grizzly movie:

In Contracted a 20-something girl gets what she thinks is an Std after a night of reckless partying… turns out, it’s far worse than anything she could ever have imagined. Writer-director Eric England puts a strange, sexual new twist on the zombie genre, and he’s here to explain how and why!
Dread Central: Ok, so let’s face it… Contracted (review here) isn’t for everybody. How’s reaction to the film been so far?
Eric England: Really positive actually. I am really happy with how they…. I don’t wanna say I am shocked, but I don’t think you go in thinking they are going to love it. It’s been really good.
DC: I would have to say I was shocked, I will use the word, because it's not the kind of movie that is just another viral zombie thing… you really put a unique slant on it. »

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a time when we make a point to spend time with our families -- and for some of us, that means put up with our families. But hey, it could be worse. You're not a member of the Sawyer clan from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. But have you ever dreamed of having a better family, like one you saw on the big screen? Do you wish you grew up with Clark and Ellen Griswold as your parents? Would you have liked to have been born into the Parr clan from The Incredibles, especially since you'd likely have superpowers? Any fantasies of being adopted by the Tenenbaums, the Corleones, the Cullens or the Klumps? Or kidnap-adopted by the McDunnoughs? Your favorite movie family doesn't have to be one you'd like to live with, of course. Some...

(Cbr) House at the End of the Street director Mark Tonderai will remake George A. Romero’s 1985 zombie film Day of the Dead for Millennium Films. Deadline offers a one-sentence summary of the remake: “In this new version, years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.” Millennium announced the remake in July, with "Texas Chainsaw 3D" producers Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell attached. Tonderai wrote the script with Lars Jacobson, and they’re looking for a summer 2014 release. »

On November 22nd Eric England's new film Contracted (review) arrived in limited theaters and VOD outlets (including iTunes, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon Instant Video, GooglePlay, SundanceNow, and more) via IFC Midnight, and we got a chance to speak with the film's star, Najarra Townsend.
Dread Central: Eric told me that you are quite a trooper considering all the makeup and everything you had to go through. Can you tell me a little bit about what that process was like for you, having to sort of do your thing without being able to see?
Najarra Townsend: We luckily had an amazing special effects artist. She just made everything comfortable. I feel like this could have been a disaster for my face, but luckily she was awesome. I just found it to be really fun. I mean, there were challenges that came with it, [but] even the not seeing kind of helped with my character. »

Dear God help us all: The cinematic geniuses who collectively coughed up “Texas Chainsaw 3D” are presently hard at work on yet another “Day of the Dead” remake. This time around, the re-telling of George A. Romero’s zombie picture will be tackled by none other than “House at the End of the Street” director Mark Tonderai. Why do we need another remake of “Day of the Dead”? I’m guessing it’s because director John Luessenhop’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D” made some scratch at the box office earlier this year. And everyone knows that the boys and girls in Hollywood absolutely adore cash. Any kind of cash. If the moviegoers were willing to pay good money to see someone defecate inside a plastic bag for 90 minutes, we’d get a trilogy. In 3D. The latest remake reportedly takes place after the zombie apocalypse has destroyed most of the planet. »

The fantastic thing about the VHS years is that the poster art was frequently hand drawn and frequently had very little or nothing to do with the actual film. If you picked a film based solely on the box cover, you had a pretty good chance of being disappointed or at least surprised. Distributors seemed to see a snazzy box cover as a good way to get some mileage out of a subpar film. That still goes on today, but it seems to happen less frequently and the artwork just isn’t the same. In spite of the trickery that duped more than a couple of horror fans in the late ‘70s through the early ‘90s, there are some terrific and legitimate films that have terribly misleading – albeit awesome – cover art. For that reason, we present to you ten more examples of awesomely misleading film artwork.

Tonderai will direct from a script adapted by scribe Lars Jacobson. The 1985 original from George Romero marked the third chapter in his 'Dawn of...' franchise which would go on to spawn 3 further sequels all directed by the legendary horror filmmaker. »
Announced earlier this year, Millennium Films and Taurus Entertainment’s Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are moving forward with a remake of George Romero’s 1985 zombie classic Day Of The Dead. The original (which has previously had a pretty woeful and very loose 2008 attempt with Meni Suvari and Nick ‘I don’t have any talent’ Cannon) saw the human resistance driven underground and begin to experiment and understand the cause of the undead outbreak. It was the third in Romero’s franchise that began with Night Of The Living Dead and followed by my favourite, Dawn Of The Dead.
We can now confirm Hush and House On The End Of The Street British director Mark Tonderai will helm this latest horror remake as well as write the screenplay alongside Lars Jacobson. The film will come from the producing tag-team that scored a major hit in January 2012 with Texas Chainsaw 3D »

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder’s career was kicked into high gear with his swell 2004 remake of the George Romero zombie classic Dawn of the Dead, and now it appears that a follow-up remake may finally be coming to fruition. After first announcing plans for a redo earlier this year, Deadline reports that Millennium Films has now tapped Mark Tonderai (House at the End of the Street) to helm a modern day remake of Romero’s 1985 Dawn follow-up Day of the Dead, which revolved around a small group of military officers and scientists dwelling in an underground bunker during the zombie apocalypse. The new film will take place “years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population” and will center on a team of scientists and survivors who, in trying to find a cure for the zombie epidemic, end up opening a Pandora’s box. »

Titles rated Nc-17 (No one under 17 admitted), the modern equivalent of the X Certificate, are often considered to have stigma attached to them. They are often old X rated movies that have been reclassified. Usually what happens is that the makers of the films surrender their movies from ratings so that they are unrated and don’t receive the Nc-17 badge. they will also frequently submit Nc-17 films with significant cuts to ensure they are more respectably dubbed ‘R rated’ movies.
Nc-17 does not have the allure or mystery of the X certificate but for the cognoscenti, there is much awesome fun to be had. The Nc-17 rating is not necessarily a death knell for films. Many of them – like Showgirls go on to achieve a fortune in Video and DVD sales – and build up a cult around them. Some Nc-17 films are of a very high calibre with directors »

The Burbs director Joe Dante is set to direct a big screen adaptation of the short film Burying the Ex. The full-length feature will star Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga), Anton Yelchin (Fright Night), Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson, Texas Chainsaw 3D), and Oliver Cooper (Project X).
According to The Wrap, the story "follows Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) as their relationship takes a nose dive once they move in together. Max discovers how controlling and manipulative Evelyn is but he’s too scared to break up with her. When fate steps in and Evelyn dies in a freak accident, newly-single Max prepares to move on with Olivia (Daddario). His romantic life becomes complicated when Evelyn rises from the grave and sets out to get her boyfriend back, even if that means turning him into one of the undead."
I've enjoyed the films that Dante has made over the course of his career. »

As Bruce Campbell proved to us all last week when he debunked the previous week’s announcement that Army of Darkness 2 was on its way, news of impending horror sequels should probably always be taken with a grain of salt. Countless sequels have been announced over the years, only to drop off the face of the earth shortly thereafter. It’s just the nature of the game, in a fickle business like the movie-making one.
Back in August we took a look at ten of those sequels that we’re still waiting to see, and today I’ve got ten more for ya. They were all planned, they were all announced, but none of them ever actually happened!
28 Months Later
A few months before the 2007 DVD release of 28 Days Later’s sequel 28 Weeks Later, the now defunct company Fox Atomic teased a third film, implying that the future of the »
