Talk about a release that should need no introduction: when MGM Home Video released its first DVD sets of Outer Limits sixteen years ago, we saw the pale transfers and the feeble encoding (eight hours per disc!) and immediately wished for a reissue. Syndicated TV broadcasts looked better.

Deadly Pleasures: A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

  • DailyDead
Like with any long-running slasher movie franchise, every horror fan has a favorite Nightmare on Elm Street sequel when asked. The most popular response is Dream Warriors, which, based on anecdotal evidence, many fans prefer even to the first film. Some like its follow-up, the Renny Harlin-directed The Dream Master, best. Very rarely, if ever, do Nightmare fans name the fifth installment, 1989’s The Dream Child, as their favorite. It’s the unloved orphan of the franchise, lacking even the novelty of Freddy’s Dead with its 3-D climax and the fact that it’s designed to end the series for good (even if Wes Craven’s New Nightmare would render said closure impotent just a few years later). For many, The Dream Child represents the franchise overstaying its welcome for one film too many before wrapping up. And, yes, the movie has its share of problems both in

Q&A with Nights Of The Living Dead Co-Editor Jonathan Maberry, Read an Excerpt from His Short Story “Lone Gunman”

For years, he's brought the dead to life in books like Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin, so it's rather fitting that prolific author Jonathan Maberry has now teamed up with the legendary George A. Romero to co-edit an anthology set within the early stages of the zombie uprising in Night of the Living Dead. Titled Nights of the Living Dead, the new anthology is now available from St. Martin's Press (check out our giveaway here), and to celebrate, we caught up with Maberry for our latest Q&A feature to discuss his work on the living dead dream project, and we also have a claustrophobic excerpt from his short story "Lone Gunman."

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Jonathan. How did the opportunity come about to collaborate on a Night of the Living Dead anthology with the legend himself, George A. Romero?

Soon she and her ex-lover Declan Grady (Joe Anderson) are drawn to the town of New English where they find Jebediah Crone and the Abattoir – a monstrous house stitched together with unending rooms of death and the damned.

The tragic story behind the death of Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow

Following the sad news of Michael Massee’s passing, Luke Owen looks back at the death of Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow

On March 30th 1993, Brandon Lee walked onto the set of The Crow in Wilmington, North Carolina. Less than 24 hours later, he was dead.

Based on the comic of the same name, The Crow was to be Lee’s big break. He had gained a cult following Showdown in Little Tokyo and Rapid Fire, but he wanted to move into something different and not be “remembered as the son of Bruce Lee” as he once put it. The Crow, written by James O’Barr and released in 1989, was very gothic and macabre, inspired by his love of The Cure and Joy Division and follows rock star Eric who is resurrected by a crow after he and his fiancée are killed in the streets by thugs.

2016 Los Angeles Film Festival Interview: Darren Lynn Bousman Talks Abattoir (Exclusive)
Many people often romanticize the seemingly idyllic characteristics of the past that appear to offer a serene way of life, without truly realizing what harrowing aspects can also often plague the situation. But the determined protagonist in director Darren Lynn Bousman‘s new horror film, ‘Abattoir,’ soon discovers how distressing the past can truly be when she realizes that a horrifying crime spree is coming back to haunt her. The all-too-important lesson of how the secrets of the past can truly harm a person’s present and future was highlighted when the film, which was written by Christopher Monfette, David J. Schow and Teddy Tenenbaum, screened at the 2016 Los Angeles Film [ Read More ]

Murder Rooms Make Up this Haunted House in Abattoir

Director Darren Lynn Bousman's latest horror film is titled Abattoir. This title recently had a screening at the La Film Festival, with a showing at the Arclight Culver City coming up. This haunted house thriller involves a home, which has been constructed from crime scenes. Each room in this house has had one murder take place inside. The film stars Jessica Lowndes (Altitude) as Julia, a real estate investigator. And, the film's second movie clip is hosted here. The clip shows Julia talking with several other characters. Each character reveals something more about this murder house. Several tragedies have taken place in this residence and each sounds worse than the last. Fans of well constructed stories, or of Bousman's earlier work (Saw III, Saw IV) will like what is revealed below. Though, Abattoir looks very different from Bousman's typical horror works. More on the film is available below. Release Date: 2016. Director: Darren Lynn Bousman.

Laff 2016 Interview: Darren Lynn Bousman on Making Impossible Movies and the Long Journey of Abattoir

Premiering tonight at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival is Darren Lynn Bousman’s Abattoir, a neo-noir-infused horror film that follows a reporter (Jessica Lowndes) investigating a mysterious man by the name of Jebediah Crone (Dayton Callie), who collects the rooms of violent crime scenes as part of his plan to build a home based entirely upon murder. Abattoir also co-stars Lin Shaye, Joe Anderson, J. Larose, and Michael Paré.

Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Bousman about his return to horror for his latest film, why he thrives on making “un-makeable” films, and the long journey of Abattoir from page to screen.

[Writer’s Note: Full disclosure, my significant other (and sometimes contributor to Daily Dead) edited Abattoir, so while we will not be reviewing it, we thought an interview with Bousman would be an appropriate way to give Daily Dead readers insights into the film.]

Let’s start at the beginning and talk about the evolution of Abattoir from the graphic novel to the feature film version. This has been a long time coming.
