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.
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.

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.

In June 2007 in Kumburgaz, Turkey, Yalcin Yalman, a night guard, saw and recorded a strange object hovering over the Sea of Marmara. The same UFO was seen and recorded by various other Turkish citizens in 2008 and 2009, always appearing around the same time of year.
In an effort to prove that all of the footage recorded of the UFO was nothing more than just another hoax, Turkey's National Council for the Study of Science and Technology analyzed it, sure that they'd discover that scale models, toys, or CGI was used to pull off the impressive trick.
What they proved, however, was quite the opposite of what they expected. After extensive analysis, the council found absolutely no evidence that any part of the footage was a hoax. "The objects observed on the images have a structure made of a specific material and are definitely not any kind of CGI animation or in any means a type of special effects used for simulation in a studio or for video effects," they said in their official report. "So the conclusion of this report is that the observations are not a model, marquette [sic], or a fraud."
The footage was also analyzed by professors, special effects companies, and video specialists, who all agreed that the images are indeed authentic. Nobody has yet been able to disprove any of what you're about to see.
Could this be actual video footage of extraterrestrial beings? Watch the video and then let us know what you think by leaving a comment below!
Far too often we throw around the phrase "horror icon" or "horror legend"; however, there is no disputing the fact that Vincent Price absolutely deserves to be described with both of those handles. And today, to celebrate Scream Factory's launch of The Vincent Price Collection (review), we count down our Top 10 Vincent Price Films.
Well known to mainstream, non-horror fans as the voice in the legendary Michael Jackson song "Thriller," Vincent Price was indeed the face of horror for quite some time. He was incredibly chilling with a voice that simply oozed horror. And it's for those enviable traits, and the fact that he spent so much of his life dedicated to the horror genre, that we honor Vincent Price with his own personal Top 10 list!
He has just under 200 acting credits to his name, then over 175 more instances where he appeared as himself. Price's credits read like a venerable laundry list of classic horror and entertainment, so it certainly was not easy to get it down to just 10. Therefore, let's start with some honorable mentions that barely missed the cut. From The Masque of Red Death to Witchfinder General and The Tomb of Legia, Price's horror work was unmatched. However, he was also a great comedic talent as well, appearing as Egghead in the "Batman" television series and the Canadian children's show "The Hilarious House of Frightenstein." He was excellent as both a horror host on shows like "Masterpiece Mystery" and a talk/game show guest, appearing on nearly 400 episodes of "Hollywood Squares" and almost 40 times on "The Tonight Show." He even had a short-lived cooking show entitled "Cooking Price-Wise with Vincent Price" (very short-lived). But it's for the horror that we love and remember him, so on to the Top 10 Vincent Price Films!
House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Directed by the legendary William Castle, Vincent Price stars as the host of the haunted house party, Frederick Loren. Price's performance of Loren, combined with Castle's marketing genius, made the film a huge success. Castle floated a skeleton over the live audience with a gimmick he called "Emergo." In fact, Alfred Hitchcock himself was so intrigued by the performance of the low-budget horror film at the box office that he decided to make one of his own and give it a go. Thus, Vincent Price's House on Haunted Hill inspired Psycho.
The Tingler (1959)
Vincent Price had a memorable performance in another 1959 film directed by William Castle. And it again featured one of Castle's infamous in-theater gimmicks. The Tingler was a bit more campy than House on Haunted Hill, but it is still a great film. In The Tingler Price plays pathologist Dr. Warren Chapin, who discovers that the "spine-tingling" sensation experienced by humans during extreme fear is due to the existence of a creature every person has attached to his or her spine called a "Tingler." At the conclusion of the film, Castle broke the fourth wall and gave the appearance of Tinglers entering the theater. Random seats had been wired to deliver an electric pulse to the viewer in the chair, resulting in a shocking experience! *rimshot* The Tingler also features a scene with Dr. Chapin tripping on LSD, a first in a major motion picture. Check out the scene below.
House of Wax (1953)
Before he partnered with William Castle and his gimmicks, Vincent Price appeared in the groundbreaking film House of Wax. This was a landmark in cinema as it was the first ever full-color 3D film from a major American studio and also the first 3D film with stereophonic sound presented in regular theaters. The film was actually a remake of a 1933 movie entitled Mystery of the Wax Museum (see, they were even doing remakes back in the 1950's), and Price played Professor Henry Jarrod, a wax figure sculptor with a museum in New York in the 1890's. Directed by André de Toth, House of Wax features Price's character as a psychotic killer who hides his victims within his wax sculptures. If anyone is recalling the 2005 "remake" featuring Paris Hilton, please stop.
The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)
One of Price's most memorable characters was Dr. Anton Phibes. Phibes was on a revenge kick against a group of doctors he felt botched his wife's surgery, resulting in her death. This film is Price at his campy best. Even though he didn't have to recite any lines during the filming of the movie, with everything being added aftewards, Price still manages to deliver a smashingly entertaining performance. Phibes' revenge plot is based upon the 10 plagues of Egypt, including frogs, rats, beasts and blood. Price returned to the character the following year, reuniting with the original film's director Robert Fuest, in Dr. Phibes Rises Again!
The Fall of the House of Usher (1960)
The Fall of the House of Usher (or simply House of Usher as it’s also known) was the beginning of an excellent string of films for Price which saw him teaming with director Roger Corman for a run of movies adapted from Edgar Allan Poe stories by writer Richard Matheson. Price plays the creepy and foreboding Roderick User, determined to keep his sister Madeline from marrying and continuing the tainted family bloodline.
The Pit and the Pendulum (1961)
The second collaboration among Price, Corman and Matheson on an Edgar Allan Poe story resulted in another memorable movie. In The Pit and the Pendulum, Price plays the seriously unbalanced Nicholas Medina (he also appears as Nicholas’ father, Sebastian). Imagery from The Pit and the Pendulum is still prominent today, and the swinging blade is as recognizable as ever. This second installment in the Poe series was a larger success than its predecessor and even more well received by critics. In fact, it was due to this success that the later films in the series were made as even after the success of Usher, there wasn’t talk of a series of movies until after Pit knocked them dead at the box office.
The Raven (1963)
A third entry from the Price-Corman-Matheson-Poe collection makes the list. The Raven not only features Vincent Price, but Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre as well. The three appear as rival conjurors. A young Jack Nicholson is also in the movie. Price plays Erasamus Craver, distraught over the loss of his wife, of course, Lenore. This could not be more loosely based on the classic Poe poem of the same name, but there are, at least, a couple raven sightings in the movie. In fact, this was quite the change for Price and the Edgar Allan Poe filmmaking crew as The Raven was actually a horror-comedy and not the straight up scarefest they had previously been shooting for. Indeed, one of the highlights is hearing the delivery of that famous line, "Quoth the raven…nevermore."
The Last Man on Earth (1964)
This is the first film adapted from Richard Matheson's classic book I Am Legend. It was, of course, later used by George A. Romero as the inspiration for Night of the Living Dead, and The Last Man on Earth was remade in 1971 as a film entitled Omega Man and in 2007 as I Am Legend. In the '64 film Vincent Price plays protagonist Dr. Robert Morgan, who is trying to survive by himself in a world overrun by vampires. He hunts them during the day and attempts to dispose of as many as possible. As he gets closer to a possible cure, tragedy strikes. This is as post-apocalyptic as it gets!
The Invisible Man Returns (1940)
The Invisible Man Returns is a notable film for Price because it was his first-ever horror role. That's right; even the master of the macabre had to start somewhere. It was in this movie that Price plays Sir Geoffrey Radcliffe, a man wrongly accused of murder. In order for him to find the real killer and clear his name, the brother of the original Invisible Man injects Radcliffe with a serum that turns him invisible and allows him to go on this mission. Price was actually only onscreen for about one minute, as he was invisible for most of the movie. For the rest of the time he brought the character to live with his disembodied voice.
The Fly (1958)
We round out the Top 10 Vincent Price films with another classic, The Fly, which, much like many of Price's films, was a critical and financial success. Price played Francois Delambre, brother of Andre Delambre, the scientist who became the beast. It was another memorable performance for a man who had a career absolutely loaded with them. Vincent Price was a trailblazer for the genre. This time, instead of playing the villain, Price gets to deliver the final line of morality of the film, explaining how his brother died in search of the truth. He did it with a giant fly head, but he did seek truth!

Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro star.
Barreiro and Caro are parents whose preteen son and daughter inexplicably reappear after being lost overnight on a desolate, cave-riddled mountainside after a casual hike became every parent’s nightmare.
The good luck and good fortune of their return soon changes, as the children’s behavior suggests ominous and unspeakable events the night the children were lost that continue even now. As a loving couple – and loving parents – try to care for and protect their children, the ancient and half-whispered legends around the caves and the mountain and those who have gone there before become too strange to believe … and too dangerous, no matter how insane, to ignore.
