Another new film heading to this year's American Film Market crossed our desks, and we have the first details and another bit of small, somewhat blurry sales art to share for David Worth's Hazard Jack, which is currently in post-production.
The film stars Amanda Maddox, Alison Lani, Macauley Gray, and Kevin James Sporman. It is directed by David Worth, written by Worth and Doug Vandegrift, and produced by Sheldon Silverstein.
Look for more soon!
A group of college friends decide to have a weekend of fun and war games at an abandoned hospital which has become the sanctuary for a now transformed horror, and his name is Hazard Jack.
A new project is on the way from Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal, and it will be the man's first English language film! Read on for the initial gory details of The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
According to Screen Daily the flick will be based on an original screenplay by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing. The Autopsy of Jane Doe is produced by Fred Berger (Taking Chance) and Eric Garcia (Matchstick Men) under their Impostor Pictures banner alongside Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh of 42 (Welcome to the Punch, Monsters: Dark Continent).
Goldcrest’s Nick Quested and Pascal Degove are serving as executive producers. Production will take place in London this winter with casting under way.
Set in a small-town, family-owned mortuary, the film follows father and son coroners who receive a mysterious homicide victim – a beautiful young “Jane Doe.” As they attempt to figure out how she died and who she is, they discover increasingly bizarre clues which hold the key to terrifying secrets.
Up next from our friends over at Scream Factory is a double dose of campy creature feature fun, when The Beast of Hollow Mountain and The Neanderthal Man link up and come home together. Read on for the skinny!

We've been talking about a Doctor Strange movie here on Dread Central for a long while now, and it sounds as if the flick has gone from talk to development! Read on for the latest!
During an interview with Movies.com in promotion of Thor: The Dark World, Marvel honcho Kevin Feige spoke about bringing Doc to the screen. "[The project is] in active development right now. Doc Strange, as I’ve been saying for years, is a movie I believe we should make. We’re just figuring out how to make it a great movie. Whether that’s one of the movies we announce for 2016 or 2017, we have to see. I think it’ll be the middle of next year before we announce officially what the post Ant-Man films will be. Stuff might happen before that. It’s too early to tell.”
The last actor they were looking at to assume the mystical role was The Dark Knight Rises, Looper, and Inception's Joseph Gordon-Levitt (pictured).
The film is being penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer.
Created in 1963, Doctor Strange is the story of an arrogant surgeon who is injured in a car accident and goes on to become the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel universe. Using his magical powers, Strange protects the Earth from attacks from other realms.
20th Century Fox just released the first teaser for X-Men: Days of Future Past on Instagram. Kind of a strange time considering the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier just hit earlier today (both below).

Album review written by Lauren Rae
Alter Bridge is one of those bands that, for the most part, still seems to be somewhat of an undiscovered gem. Their fan base has grown exponentially over the years, and they do receive significant airplay. But there are still a lot of people who have not heard of them. And for those who have, well, like with Creed, you either love them or hate them. Funny how three of the four core members of that band seem to keep winding up in bands drawing those sorts of sentiments.
I happen to fall in the ‘love them’ category. I’ll openly admit I’m a huge Mark Tremonti fangirl and used to be a huge Creed fan, which (like with many of their admirers) is how I was introduced to them in 2005. One big factor with Alter Bridge is constant growth. Each album seems to be bigger than the last. And Fortress is no exception. In fact, it may set the precedent for future AB releases; it’s just that huge.
Right away, the album launches full force and doesn’t let go; you’re in for a full ride. “Cry of Achilles” is possibly one of the best album openers I’ve heard in a long time; the kind gives you goose bumps within the first minute. If I had to compare it to anything, I’d say it’s on par with Stone Sour’s “Gone Sovereign”. I can easily see “Bleed It Dry” (with its metal leanings) and “Lover” (the albums token broken ballad) becoming radio singles, especially the latter. “Waters Rising” stood out to me over all the other tracks – as it should everyone else – as singer Myles Kennedy was the backing singer this time and Mark Tremonti took over on lead vocals. And it’s an interesting contrast, his baritone coming first to the tenor of Myles’s voice, to which we all know can be very dominant in its four octave range. Personally, I’d like to see that happen more on the next album, whenever that may be.
I’ve listened to this album at least a dozen times already, trying to pick out a bad spot in the album. I feel as though I can’t give a good review unless I’m pointing out the good and the bad, even if it’s not in equal measure. And I literally cannot find a single thing wrong with Fortress. If you’ve never heard of or listened to Alter Bridge, I’d suggest you start now and with this one.
The wonderful loonies over at Blue Underground have updated their list of theatrical engagements for the re-release of Maniac Cop 2 so check it out to see if you'll be one of the lucky ones who'll witness the massacre on the big screen!
From the Press Release
Blue Underground is bringing a 2013 DCP Restoration of director William Lustig’s MANIAC COP 2 to theaters this fall in advance of its upcoming Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack release.
Featuring a brand-new 4K High Definition transfer from the original camera negative and new Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, this MANIAC COP 2 DCP is the definitive presentation of the action-packed cult-horror favorite. Bill will attend MANIAC COP 2 screenings in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, and San Francisco to introduce what critics have hailed as “Truly The Greatest ‘80s Horror-Action Movie Ever Made!” (Alamo Drafthouse).
The limited theatrical release kicks off with a sneak preview this Saturday, October 19th, at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre during the Music Box of Horrors marathon. There will be a Q&A with Bill following the screening, and afterwards he’ll be signing the new MANIAC COP 2 posters for attendees.
View the full screening schedule here!
“Although MANIAC COP 2, like the first movie, played theatrically upon its initial release in every corner of the world (the Pakistani poster is a hoot!), in the States it went straight to home video and HBO. While I understood the business decision, it was still a crushing blow for what I considered to be my best film – and still do. So this long overdue theatrical release is very personal for me. I’m thrilled to finally share this film with audiences around the country the way it is meant to be seen!” - Bill Lustig
In MANIAC COP 2, Officer Matt Cordell is back from the dead and stalking the streets of New York once more. Cordell was once a hero, but after being framed by corrupt superiors and brutally assaulted in prison, he sets out on a macabre mission of vengeance, teaming up with a vicious serial killer to track down those that wronged him and make them pay... with their lives!
Scripted by Larry Cohen (IT’S ALIVE), MANIAC COP 2 boasts an amazing cast including Robert Davi (LICENSE TO KILL), Claudia Christian (THE HIDDEN), Michael Lerner (BARTON FINK), Laurene Landon (HUNDRA), Leo Rossi (HALLOWEEN II), Robert Z’Dar (TANGO & CASH), Charles Napier (THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS), and Bruce Campbell (THE EVIL DEAD).
Blue Underground’s MANIAC COP 2 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack arrives on November 19, 2013.
In this sequel to Maniac Cop pits Matt Cordell (Robert Z'dar), the crazed, murderous "Maniac Cop" of the first film (now horribly disfigured after a particularly brutal stay in prison), and Turkel (Leo Rossi), a serial killer who likes to murder strippers, against a frenzied NYPD detective, Sean McKinney (Robert Davi), who is just one step ahead of a nervous breakdown.
The first official images from the French zombie series "The Returned" have arrived courtesy of Sundance, and we have every one of them free of the dirt and splinters that come when you erupt from the grave.
Sundance Channel has acquired US broadcast rights to the supernatural drama “The Returned” from Music Box Films. The eight-part French series distributed by Zodiak Rights was created by Fabrice Gobert and is based on the feature film Les Revenants by Robin Campillo. It will premiere on Sundance Channel on Halloween, Thursday, October 31st, at 9PM ET/PT. It will air every Thursday night at 9PM.
In an idyllic French mountain town, a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they don’t know yet is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality. But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past. The series was produced by Caroline Benjo, Jimmy Desmarais, and Carole Scotta from Haut et Court.
Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s You’re Next will be slashing its way to home video on January 14, 2014. It will hit VOD prior to video on December 27. Special features include: “No Ordinary Home Invasion: The Making Of You’re Next” featurette, Audio commentary with Director Adam Wingard, Writer Simon Barrett and Actors Sharni Vinson and Barbara Crampton, and Audio commentary with Director Adam Wingard and Writer Simon Barrett.
In addition, Bloody Disgusting is excited to bring you a massive, previously unseen image gallery that carries quite a few new stills (some are old).
From the filmmakers behind A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S, V/H/S/2 and the forthcoming The Guest, You’re Next reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. “When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.”
Sharni Vinson (the upcoming Patrick remake), Nick Tucci (Choose, Undocumented), Wendy Glenn (11-11-11), AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Joe Swanberg (A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S), Margaret Laney, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die), Ti West (The Roost, The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), Calvin Reeder (V/H/S, The Rambler), Larry Fessenden (Habit, The Last Winter), Kate Lyn Sheil (V/H/S), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond and Castle Freak) and Rob Moran all star.
Here’s Fred Topel’s review out of TIFF 2011.
A smart spy thriller, “Velvet” #1 will keep readers on their toes as each plot twist hits them hard. This is an exciting glimpse into a secretive world filled with gun-toting traitors, high-ranking schemers, and trained assassins. No one can be trusted as everyone is pretending to live a double life in the “Velvet” series.

PUBLISHER: Image Comics
RELEASE: October 23, 2013
The underground organization, X-Ops, has sent their top secret agent, Jeff Keller, on a dangerous assignment in Paris. With the Eiffel Tower behind him, Jeff ends up taking out his gun and shooting a room full of innocent civilians. After dodging the French police, Jeff jumps across the rooftops before finally reaching his parked car. Just when he thought the fiasco was over, Jeff suddenly sees the shotgun pointed at him. At point-blank range, the shotgun blast kills Jeff before he can take out his piece. At the X-Ops headquarters in London, Velvet Temptation has just been debriefed about Jeff’s murder. Velvet will have to go through her own team in order to find Jeff’s killer.
Writer Ed Brubaker takes his espionage-driven narrative through different foreign settings and time periods. What I liked most about Brubaker’s writing is how he transitions the timeline between Velvet’s past and present. With the story set amid the ’70s and late ’60s, Brubaker has a way with the hard-bitten dialogue as the narrative steers toward noirish territory. When a secondary character calls Velvet nothing more than a “secretary,” it automatically sounds misogynist and hateful.
During the time jumps, Brubaker is able to hint at the many layers behind Velvet Temptation. When Velvet is at the X-Ops offices, she is more of a bookworm, kind of like a librarian, as she goes through tedious amounts of paperwork. But when she is out in the field, Velvet lets loose her hair, becoming seductive and adventurous. And when she is at home, Velvet acts like a completely different person, living a comfortably quiet life. Notice in the bedroom how there is no personal item belonging to her.
Artist Steve Epting has an interesting character design for Velvet. When Velvet is at the X-Ops headquarters, her wardrobe is classy and business-like. To keep up the elegant look, Epting lets a white strand of Velvet’s hair curl around her face. Epting uses rain as a way to establish the noir themes. When Velvet is walking across the rainy streets of London, she uses a brown trench coat to cover herself, as if she is always hiding something.
Epting’s illustrations in the opening pages will instantly hook the readers. It’s an action sequence gone horribly wrong as Jeff finds himself suddenly comprised. A tribute to the James Bond movies, specifically the Pierce Bronsan ones, Jeff is wearing a black suit and a bowtie as he fights his way through security. The panels burst with red hues as Jeff is taken down by the hidden gunman.
“Velvet” #1 kicks off to a great start and I hope the excitement keeps up in the next issue. If you’re a fan of “24″ and the Jason Bourne movies, you’re definitely going to enjoy the hell out of “Velvet.”

A major treat for horror movie fans, the “Army of Darkness/Re-Animator” one-shot special is full of witty one-liners, slapstick visual gags, and crazy undead action. A fresh spin on both franchises, the crossover becomes a stylish and over-the-top romp of gore and comedy. With Ash picking up his boomstick and Herbert West carrying his glowing green syringe, this unlikely team-up gives a whole new meaning to oddball lunacy.
WRITTEN BY: Mark Rahner
ART BY: Randy Valiente
PUBLISHER: Dynamite Entertainment
RELEASE: October 23, 2013
After being sucked into a vortex, Ash Williams is spit out and thrown somewhere in the past. In 1922, Ash accidentally ends up in the medical hands of Dr. Herbert West. Because of his Hippocratic oath, Dr. West operates on Ash and gives him back his missing hand. In return, Ash becomes West’s new lab assistant and helps him in his underground research to extend life. Ash senses something is terribly wrong when he discovers Dr. West using the Necronomicon for his medical experiments. Dr. West will bring about something from the deadly incantation that even Ash cannot stop.
Writer Mark Rahner understands that this crossover entirely depends on the characterizations of his main protagonists. When Ash isn’t fighting the Deadites, Rahner portrays him as a dumb jock who is really out of his league. Rahner then depicts West as an intelligent doctor interested in saving lives, but willing to go to the extremes to do so. Rahner is having fun with the Dr. Frankenstein and Igor metaphor, especially when Ash finds himself hustled and outsmarted by Dr. West’s mind-games.
The chemistry between Ash and Dr. West works surprisingly very well because Rahner focuses on their dialogue. When Dr. West speaks, he is eloquent and technical, as if showing off his intelligence. Ash interrupts Dr. West’s monologues any chance he gets and throws in a witty comeback. Even though Dr. West is annoyed by the sarcastic remarks, he knows Ash can serve a better purpose in his experiments.
Artist Randy Valiente is able to capture Sam Raimi’s slapstick comedy and Stuart Gordon’s excessive use of gore in his panels. Valiente though does not replicate the looks of Bruce Campbell and Jeffrey Combs into his illustrations. Because the characters are supposed to be in their younger heyday, Valiente settles for a caricature style when illustrating Ash and Dr. West. In the opening pages, Valiente uses an extreme low angle when Ash meets Dr. West for the first time, making him seem larger than life.
One of my favorite illustrations is when Ash’s new hand takes a turn for the worst. Unable to control himself, Ash grabs Dr. West and begins to strangle him. Ash knows the only way to save Dr. West is by sawing off his own hand. In all its glory of blood and gore, Valiente shows Ash sawing off his new hand and makes Dr. West watch with his eyes wide open.
“Army of Darkness/Re-Animator” is an entertaining read that makes you wish the crossover was a little bit longer. After you finish this issue, you’ll end up watching the “Evil Dead” and “Re-Animator” DVDs all over again.

A few days ago we told you about Legendary Pictures partnering with Beyond Fest for a one-night only theatrical screening of Trick 'r Treat that includes a panel and online component. Today we know who'll be there.
From the Press Release
The pieces are all falling into place for a special night at the Egyptian Theatre on Monday, October 28th. Legendary Pictures has announced that all of the key cast members of the cult horror classic Trick ‘r Treat will be in attendance for the one-night only theatrical screening of the movie and subsequent panel, which is slated to close Beyond Fest.
Dylan Baker and Brian Cox will join director Michael Dougherty to headline the event. Also slated to attend are Quinn Lord, who played the horror icon Sam in the movie, along with Jean-Luc Bilodeau. Moderating the panel will be actor Seth Green ("Dads," "Robot Chicken"). Additionally, other surprise guests are expected to attend.
Tickets for the Trick ‘r Treat screening and panel are available at the official Legendary and Trick ‘r Treat Facebook pages. For those who will not be able to attend in person, both the showing of the film and the panel will be live streamed nationally on Legendary’s Facebook page starting 7:30p PT/10:30p ET. #TrickrTreatLive
More announcements surrounding this event will be made in upcoming days so stay tuned!
THE STORY OF TRICK 'R TREAT
Although never released in theaters, Trick 'r Treat, the directorial debut of Michael Dougherty that stars Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, and Brian Cox, became a cult classic through its release on DVD, digital platforms, and extensive play in festivals. Additionally, the film received rave reviews for its originality and ambition. The passage of time has not diminished the fan fervor for this horror classic, which continues to achieve a life of its own with each new technology but has never been seen in theaters – until now.
Dougherty’s story takes place in a small Ohio town on All Hallows' Eve, where four interwoven tales - including a high school principal who moonlights as a vicious serial killer, a college-age virgin who's saving herself for that special someone, a woman whose hatred of Halloween is only exceeded by her husband's love of the mischievous holiday, and a callous group of teens who carry out an unforgivably cruel prank – deliver the kind of chills that can only occur on the darkest day of the year.
If you're in the LA area, this is one event not to be missed! For more info on the fest itself, which is under way now and runs through October 31st, visit the official Beyond Fest website.
An ambitious overdose of emotion, action, and humor, “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus” is a tremendously fun ride. Readers get a chance to see what the blue-collar paranormal investigator was like as a child. As a prequel, this will clearly hook uninitiated newcomers into the critically acclaimed “Hellboy” series.
WRITTEN BY: Mike Mignola
ART BY: Duncan Fegredo
PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics
RELEASE: October 23, 2013
In a flashback to the past, Hellboy is a curious and naive little boy as he wanders around the hallways of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. The B.P.R.D. agents have become accustomed to Little Hellboy being around, even letting him join in on their raunchy conversations. But there are some who are terribly frightened of the demonic infant, who is destined to become the destroyer of mankind. Professor Trevor Bruttenholm though wants to believe he can guide the young lad to become a better man. When Hellboy suddenly runs away from the only place he knows, Bruttenholm has to find the missing child first before his real family from Hell get to him.
Influenced by Ray Bradbury’s novel, “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” writer Mike Mignola has come up with an interesting coming-of-age tale about the distinction between upbringing and growth. Symbolizing childhood innocence, Little Hellboy discovers the awkwardness of first crushes as he wanders around the traveling circus. Though he doesn’t understand what the word means, Little Hellboy meets Lust, who will tempt him for her own purposes. Each circus performer is trying to sway Hellboy to join them and claim his rightful throne in Hell.
As the narrative continues, Mignola develops the father/son relationship as he distinguishes parallels to Pinocchio’s journey to Hellboy’s. Though they are not related by blood, Professor Bruttenholm treats Little Hellboy as if he were his own son. Professor Bruttenholm sees himself as a father just trying to raise a child, who others perceive to be a “bad kid.” Living as an orphan, Little Hellboy wants to belong to a welcoming and loving family.
Throughout the storyline, Duncan Fegredo illustrates different artistic styles to heighten the visual experience. In the opening pages, Fegredo keeps the panels shot from Little Hellboy’s point-of-view. With the assistance of Dave Stewart’s coloring, the lines are a bit bolder and the character designs are more detailed when Little Hellboy enters the circus. In an unforgettable piece of imagery, Little Hellboy sees himself growing up across a hall of mirrors. Little Hellboy actually witnesses who he will become the monster everyone is so afraid of.
Fegredo nails the right emotional arcs between Little Hellboy and Professor Bruttenholm. Depicting childhood wonder, Little Hellboy always has this look of awe when he is speaking to the adults. Notice the anxiousness and confusion on Hellboy’s face when the B.P.R.D. agents are talking about sex. In his close-ups, Professor Bruttenholm has this worried and tired expression of an over-protective but loving parent.
Just in time for Halloween, “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus” is downright impossible to put down when you start reading. For those who only know about Hellboy through the Guillermo Del Toro movies, this a great way to be re-introduced to the character in the comics.

Developed by Eko Software, How to Survive puts players in the center of the action as someone who, after an accident, finds himself on an island amidst a small archipelago off the coast of Colombia... but there are other inhabitants, many of whom are undead. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by a brain-hungry horde of zombies to get the adrenaline flowing... What will you do? Whom will you trust? How will you survive?
