The Studios Have No Interest in Third Hellboy Movie

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 17:18

During a recent AMA chat with Guillermo del Toro on Reddit, the prolific director offered an update on the long talked about Hellboy III. The long and short of it? It's not good. Read on for details.

"The idea for [Hellboy III] was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse and having him and Liz face... that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the 3rd film."

"He has to become the beast of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being. It's a very interesting ending to the series, but I don't think it will happen."

"We have gone through basically every studio and asked for financing, and they are not interested. Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it [has] proven almost impossible to finance. Not from MY side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, I would finance it myself, but I spend all my money on rubber monsters."

Well, shit.

Halloween Horror Nights Announces New From Dusk Till Dawn Mazes in Hollywood and Orlando

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 16:27

From cult horror film to breakthrough TV series, “From Dusk Till Dawn” will add "terrifying maze" to its credits when Robert Rodriguez’s acclaimed supernatural show debuts as a menacing new Halloween Horror Nights experience.

The "From Dusk Till Dawn" maze will be open at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort beginning Friday, September 19th.

This all-new maze, inspired by the critically acclaimed television series on El Rey Network, will thrust guests into the deviant world of “From Dusk Till Dawn,” where they will encounter sordid mythological creatures known as “Culebras,” serpent-like vampires who have tormented the earth for centuries.

Residing within the elusive and sinister nightclub “The Twister,” located just over the Mexican Border and above cursed ancient ruins, the “Culebras” prove to be a band of immoral and depraved beasts with a deadly agenda. As guests navigate the maze and venture deep within the bowels of “The Twister,” they will find themselves face-to-face with a cast of perverse characters, including exotic dancer Santanico Pandemonium, a mysterious and irresistible “Culebras” femme fatale and Queen Vampire.

Based on the film of the same name, "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber Seth Gecko and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard "Richie" Gecko, who are wanted by the FBI after a bank heist leaves several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller and his family, whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the Border, chaos ensues when the group members detour to a club populated by vampires and are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone of the film, From Dusk Till Dawn, upon which it is based, adding new characters and backstories that expand the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.

“Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights event is the ideal platform to [allow] fans of From Dusk Till Dawn to literally experience the terror of stepping into the show,” said Robert Rodriguez. “It has been an incredible opportunity to work closely with the Creative teams at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort to bring this maze to life with such detail and authenticity. This maze will capture the visceral excitement and thrills of the series, and I can’t wait to experience it myself.”

A versatile and award-winning filmmaker, Robert Rodriguez is renowned for directing a variety of successful and groundbreaking film sagas, including such cult horror classics as Planet Terror, Machete, Grindhouse, and From Dusk Till Dawn, upon which El Rey Network’s hit television show “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is based. Rodriguez is also the Founder & Chairman of El Rey Network, a 24-hour, general entertainment English-language cable channel which debuted in the U.S. in December 2013.

“Robert Rodriguez’s genius in pushing the boundaries of the horror genre is a perfect pairing for Halloween Horror Nights as we continue to intensify our event with the most credible horror voices within the entertainment industry,” said John Murdy, Creative Director for Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights. “This radical new maze will give fans of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ an unprecedented opportunity to experience the show’s Mesoamerican mythology and will come to life with the same attention to detail and production value that Robert’s work is known for.”

“Robert Rodriguez’s vision of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ has translated so well into a maze experience,” said Michael Aiello, Director of Entertainment - Creative Development, Universal Orlando Resort. “We will feature the over-the-top gore that the show does so well, and our guests will come face-to-face with Robert’s unique and wickedly cool take on the vampire mythos that is completely authentic to the show. From the nightclub interiors to the inner sanctum of its tombs, these bloodthirsty beasts will be everywhere and have a thirst that can’t be quenched.”

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights events have a more than 20-year history of creating incredibly entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are consistently rated the nation’s best. The events on each coast feature highly-themed, disturbingly real, haunted mazes based on everything from films to nightmares – and streets filled with hundreds of specially trained “scareactors.” In addition to the “From Dusk Till Dawn” maze, other announced mazes include “The Walking Dead: The End of the Line.

To learn more about the “From Dusk Till Dawn” maze, check out the two videos below; one is the announcement, and the other features the "From Dusk Till Dawn" cast. More info on Halloween Horror Nights is available at Halloween Horror Nights.com. Updates from Creative Director John Murdy can be found on Twitter, as he reveals a running chronicle of exclusive information.

Mark of Kane Teaser Poster Cuts Deep

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 16:26

Dread Central's own Serena Whitney co-scripted the feature film adaptation of Michael Prescott's novel Kane, entitled Mark of Kane, and on tap for you today is the first piece of poster art for the upcoming flick. Dig it, and expect more real soon!

From the Press Release
Ahead of the Fantasia Frontieres Co-Production Market, a new teaser poster has just been released for Mark of Kane, the feature film adaption of New York Times bestselling author Michael Prescott’s horror novel Kane (originally published as Douglas Borton). <?i>

The poster is by prolific designer Omar Hauksson (The Raid 1 & 2, Proxy, Stage Fright, Resolution).

Mark of Kane is one of the ‘Off-Frontieres’ Selections at Fantasia Film Festival’s upcoming Frontieres International Co-Production Market. The adaption is co-scripted by Serena Whitney (writer at Dread Central) and Justin McConnell (The Collapsed, Skull World). Whitney and McConnell also co-produce along with Canadian-producer Avi Federgreen (Still Mine, One Week, High Life). The team is rounded out by two highly respected genre directors, who currently serve as consulting producers: Adam Mason (Blood River, The Devil’s Chair, Broken) and George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine, 24 Hour Rental). A director has yet to be named.

Synopsis
Kane is a force of nature. Walking out of the desert into the dying town of Tuskett, which only 23 people still call home, he has only one purpose: to kill every resident. Relentless, stealthy, and without mercy, Kane won’t stop until every last man, woman, and child is nothing but a memory. Soon the surviving townspeople must band together to fight this seemingly unstoppable evil or die trying. Brutal, action-packed, and most importantly, character-driven, Mark of Kane is a thrilling story of survival at any cost.

Septic Man Crawls Out of the Sewer for Home Video and Theatrical Release

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 16:19

In his review of Septic Man here on Dread Central, Brad McHargue touted it as being "a divisive yet damned intriguing film," which personally has me itching to check out the latest from Jesse Thomas Cook.

If you feel the same way, you won't have to wait long, as a DVD, VOD and limited theatrical release has just been announced. Read on!

From the Press Release
Starz Digital Media is set to release the award-winning horror film Septic Man this summer. The film will be available On Demand and for digital download August 12 and will have a limited theatrical run on August 15. The DVD will be available August 19.

From the creators of Monster Brawl, Exit Humanity, and 2014’s Hellmouth and Ejecta, Septic Man dazzled audiences at the 2013 Fantastic Fest where its star Jason David Brown (Exit Humanity) won “Best Actor” in a horror feature. The film also garnered a prize at Toronto After Dark 2013.

Septic Man follows Jack, a sewage worker who is determined to uncover the cause of the town's water contamination crisis. During his investigation, he becomes trapped underground in a septic tank and undergoes a hideous transformation. He must team up with a docile Giant and confront a murdering madman in order to escape. Hailed as a “stunning” (Little Red Umbrella), “funny” (TwitchFilm), and “visceral story that will leave you shaken and desperate for a shower” (Rue Morgue Magazine), Septic Man is an odyssey into the darkest depths of gross-out horror.

Septic Man was directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) and written by Tony Burgess (PontyPool). It co-stars Molly Dunsworth (Bunker 6, Hobo with a Shotgun) and Robert Maillet (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones).

Adam McCormick had just turned fifteen when the body was found in the woods. It is the beginning of an autumn that will change his life forever.

Now, more than ever, Jamie needs a friend. But the longer Adam holds on to Jamie’s ghost, the longer he keeps his friend tethered to a world where he no longer belongs... and the weaker Adam’s own ties to the living become.

Now, to find his way back, Adam must learn for himself what it truly means to be alive.

Horror Artist Spotlight: Melissa Patterson Gives Birth to Nightmares - MUST SEE!

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 12:30

Few times in my life have I ever come across something that genuinely startled me. The work of horror artist Melissa Patterson has done just that. Read on for a look at her creations that are so frighteningly real they have to be seen to be believed.

"I make them by buying a blank vinyl kit and painting it with GHSP, in water thin layers, and baking the doll parts in the oven between layers to set the paint," Patterson tells us of the creation process.

"I use different brushes and tools to make detailed efx like capillaries, veins, skin mottling, etc. I use glass eyes in them. Sometimes I paint the hair, and sometimes I micro root each individual strand. I also give them real lashes if it's age appropriate. It's a list of processes, really, but the look on people's face when I tell them I put babies in the oven is priceless!"

Patterson continues, "They always seem to take on a 'life' of their own. Each one I make is one of a kind, guaranteed. I usually charge $350.00 for a custom baby. I know that's a lot, but these guys aren't cheaply made in any way, and it takes 2 to 3 weeks to make each one. I don't do it for the money; I do it because it makes somebody happy and I like seeing what I can come up with next."

If you really want to freak someone out, she add, "I can also make ones that breathe and have a heartbeat!"

Check out Melissa's vampire baby, Vittoria, below. We've also included a quick look at her zombie clown (sorry, coulrophobics) prototype. For a closer look at Patterson's tamer, yet incredibly realistic work, you can visit her Pitter Patterson Nursery Facebook page and follow her on Twitter @joyoffourgirls.

Mind blown.

Gregory Lamberson has unveiled the covers for his next two novels from Medallion Press, The Frenzy Wolves and Human Monsters. Both are the final chapters of their respective franchises, The Frenzy Cycle and The Jake Helman Files.

The Frenzy Wolves, which will be published in October, is the third book in author/filmmaker Lamberson's The Frenzy Cycle werewolf trilogy, in which a New York police captain navigates conflict among opposing factions of werewolves and werewolf hunters in the age of terrorism.

Synopsis:
With the aid of his elite squad of super cops, NYPD Captain Tony Mace has defeated the werewolf slayers known as the Brotherhood of Torquemada. But now a new enemy has risen to persecute the peaceful Wolves, and Tony’s loyalty to Gabriel Domini, leader of the pack, places him at odds with his department.

Gabriel’s brother, Raphael, objects to Gabriel’s efforts to integrate the Wolves into human society and seeks to start a war against mankind. When Rodrigo Gomez, the Full Moon Killer, escapes from prison, his quest for vengeance draws Tony into a battle for supremacy among the Wolves which could lead to a far greater war for both species.

Human Monsters, due out in March 2015, is the sixth and last book in the award-winning occult detective series The Jake Helman Files, which began with Personal Demons back in 2009.

"It's bittersweet to finish each series," says Lamberson. "The Frenzy books are based on a screenplay I wrote in 1986 called The Greenwich Village Monster, and I created Jake Helman in a screenplay called The Forever Man that same year, so these characters have been with me a long time. I have more stories to tell about Jake, but for now this is the end of his literary adventures."

Lamberson, who is currently adapting his zombie novella Carnage Road into a screenplay for actor Craig Sheffer, is also developing The Jake Helman Files as a possible TV series with David Tripet, who worked on such films as Leprechaun, Wishmaster, and Return of the Living Dead III as a development executive.

"Now that I've written six novels, the template exists for an edgy cable TV series," Lamberson says. "These books have all the sex, violence, and supernatural characters to make a great serialized show."

No synopsis is available for Human Monsters yet, but we'll keep our eyes open for that along with more news on the possible TV show.
