Trailer: New "Survival of the Dead" Red Band Trailer

Think you've seen it all in a zombie film my friends? Well think again! The red band trailer for George A. Romero's next film "Survival of the Dead" is up and running and guess what? It's got a zombie on a horse! Yes the clip is short and you don't get to enjoy the zombie horse riding in all its horse glory but still it's pretty exciting. I almost like the fact that you don't see the horse. Maybe it's a zombie horse? I don't know, the possibilities are really endless. I need to calm down.

Trailer: Animated Zombie Flick "A.D."

Do you like zombie movies? Sure we all do. But what about a zombie cartoon? Oh crap you just got a semi didn't you! Well "A.D." is just that my friends. Directed by Ben Hibon who brought you the animated film "Codehunters" and produced by Bernie Goldmann who gave the world "300" and "Soul Man". Yeah, the 80's film where C. Thomas Howell pretends to be black, that guy.

The film is still in development so no release date has been set. For now you'll have to settle for the teaser below.

Trailer: Live Action "Dead Rising" Movie Coming To Xbox 360

I don't understand one word in the "Dead Rising" trailer, well other than when they say "Dead Rising" but the rest is completely lost on me. What I do know is that the film is based on the much loved video game and it'll be hitting Xbox 360's marketplace sometime in the near future. I have no idea what language the final product will be in but from the looks of things a terrible voiceover isn't really going to hurt anything.

Poster Debut: "Outpost II"

Here's the poster for "Outpost II", the sequel to the direct-to-DVD hit "Outpost" (2008). The sequel follows members of a NATO taskforce, who are sent to Eastern Europe to confront what they eventually realize is a modern day, undead Nazi battalion brought to life by an escaped war criminal from WWII. The artwork is pretty great, but it would take a *special* kind of horror fan to have this hanging on their wall. I'm not sure, it's just a little too "swastickey" for my taste.

Newsblip: Natalie Portman to star in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"

News just dropped that Natalie Portman has signed on to play the "feisty heroine", Elizabeth Bennet, in the adaptation of Seth Gramme-Smith's "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Smith took the original Jane Austen novel and spiced it up by adding, naturally, zombie hordes to the dry proceedings. The book is currently available for sale, and has garnered mixed reviews. Needless to say, this adaptation just got a lot more interesting (and dare I say, sexy).

Horror Headlines: Thursday December 10th, 2009

Generally speaking, a poster for an upcoming big-budget Hollywood remake isn't much of a news item. However, the latest "Clash of the Titans" poster is seriously badass, and worthy of your attention. Medusa would be proud.

British zombie fans, rejoice! Apparently, George A. Romero's upcoming "Survival of the Dead" will infect Region 2 DVD players on March 15th, 2010. Stateside fanatics, I'm afraid, may have a while to wait.

If, for some strange reason, Oren Peli's "Paranormal Activity" left you wanting more, be sure to check out the new digital comic book available exclusively on iTunes. Remember: That's boredom you're experiencing, not demonic possession.

Those jonesing for another installment of the new "Friday the 13th" franchise aren't going to be happy, as the sequel to Marcus Nispel's dodgy remake has been moved to an undetermined date. Given the film's lukewarm reception, I'm honestly not surprised.

In Real People News: 

Norwegian stargazers were shocked and a little horrified to find a series of incredibly mysterious blue lights hovering overhead. Blame the Russians, I say.

As much as your smelly redneck neighbors may annoy you, at least they're not using their free time to feed and nourish the local vulture population. I'm creeped out just thinking about it.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday November 24th, 2009

For you "30 Days of Night" fans, producer JR Young sits down with Dread Central to talk details of the sequel, "30 Days of Night: Dark Days". Principle photography for the film officially wraps today.

Rushing to capitalize off of the already phenomenal box office sales, the "Paranormal Activity" DVD and Blu-ray have been announced for December 29th. Details on the extras are slim aside from both the theatrical edit of the film and an unrated version with alternate ending.

Gamestudio Undead Labs has announced a zombie MMO. So far, only a console version has been announced.

New murmurings come to light about the proposed "Crow" franchise reboot. There is little available on new reboots except to remind you that this isn't going to be a direct remake of the first film. Look for new makeup and a possible known actor in the title role as well.

In Real People News: 

A Queens man suffering from split personality disorder slit the throats of his wife and 14 year old son. When approached by police, he tries to blame everything on his alter ego.

Taking the term 'social networking' to new extremes, a Ventura County man is arrested for paying male teens to spit on him, defecate on him, slap him in the face and shout obsceneties at him. All of the involved teens were from a local high school, and found through Myspace.

An Iraqi war veteran is suing McDonalds for $10 Million. The claims include being refused by employees at a Brooklyn area restaurant when he tried to enter with his service dog.

Severed: Forest of the Dead (REVIEW)

The most commonly used euphemistic definition of the word ‘crazy’ is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. This definition provides an easy way to illustrate a point to a friend who is stuck in a rut. It can also be therapeutically relevant as a way to talk to a borderline about the merits of Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Equally true is that with slight modification this definition is appropriate for the term ‘dumb ass’ as well.

Awaken The Dead (REVIEW)

Before watching writer/director Jeff Brookshire's violent 2007 microbudget action-horror hybrid "Awaken the Dead," I had no idea an entire horde of flesh-eating zombies could be kept at bay by a set of cheap Venetian blinds. Never mind the fact that your large, previously existing kitchen window has mysteriously vanished -- as long as you keep your blinds pulled down, all these shambling corpses can do is reach mindlessly between the slats in a vain attempt to ensnare you. Stay out of their way and everything will be as right as rain. Who knew? Not me, that's for sure.
