Celebrate Easter with FearNET!

It's almost the halfway mark to Halloween, and it just happens to coincide with Zombie Jesus Day...I mean, Easter! To celebrate, FearNET invited Trick 'R Treat director Michael Dougherty to bring his special talents, and wish the FearNET viewers a happy Easter Holiday. And as a added treat, everyone's favorite mayhem causing, bag wearing, mischief maker Sam even makes an appearance. This video hit close to home, reminding me of the wholesome holidays spent with my family.

Enjoy! This is hilarious!

"Trick r Treat" - The Comic

Next week sees the DVD arrival of the long-anticipated Trick 'r Treat, a spooky little anthology film from director Mike Dougherty. To accompany the DVD release, DC Comics is publishing a graphic novel adaptation of the film.

The best part? It's pretty damn good!

DVD and Blu-ray Trailer For "Trick R Treat"

After being delayed for over two years Michael Dougherty’s “Trick R Treat” has finally gotten a DVD and Blu-ray release date. I for one am almost wetting myself with excitement. In honor of this momentous occasion a final trailer for the film has been released as well. From the looks of things and the countless quotes that are thrown in the film will actually live up to expectations.

So... I do have to admit that I haven't seen "The Host" yet. The reason I say that is because here's the first still from the sequel. Does the creature in the first film look that terrible? Please inform.

Excited for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" this Halloween? Now you can enter a fan-art contest being sponsored by Warner Bro's for the release. Check it out!

Here's the final one-sheet for "Sorority Row". Not as sexy as the others, but that was a hard track record to live up to.

Ben Ketai has been hired to direct the "30 Days of Night" sequel, subtitled "Dark Days". The film will follow Melissa George's character (recast apparently) as she heads back to Las Angeles and intentionally attracts the local vampire population to get revenge for her husband's death. So, we recast the lead and take the story out of the arctic circle? Count me out.

In Real People News: 

Sony is accelerating their plans to release a 3D flatscreen television. Sweet, this means I can finally sit through "My Bloody Valentine 3D" again.

Note to potential criminals... spray paint is not an effective way to mask your identity. Well I guess that's not entirely true, but it could also kill you, which might put a crimp in your plans.

On this day in history: 

1666: A kitchen fire breaks out in Thomas Farynor's bakery on Pudding Lane, unleashing four days of destruction. 436 acres in the city are converted to ash, including 13,200 homes. 200,000 residents are rendered homeless by what comes to be known as the Great Fire of London.

"Hellified" is a supernatural action movie about a journey to hell, currently in development from Paramount.

Official site launch for "Trick 'R Treat", which finally hits DVD this October. For a great interview with Mike Dougherty on the whole ordeal, be sure to check out the latest issue of Horror Hound Magazine.

Poster and DVD Art for Dave Parker's "The Hills Run Red". The slasher flick is about a group of film fans who are obsessed with finding a print of a long lost stalk & slash, who follow a lead out into the woods and realize that the film... wait for it... never ended! They're now stuck right in the middle of the carnage, as you would expect.

John Landis has sold the remake rights to "An American Werewolf in London" to Dimension Films. Dimension, you may remember, has struggled for over 2 years now to get its "Hellraiser" remake going, with several directors leaving the project due to creative differences. We'll have to wait and see, but that doesn't bode well for this "Werewolf" redo.

In Real People News: 

Take heed, people, trading Fritos for a blowjob does indeed constitute prostitution. I know, I was surprised, too.

This just in: French people are assholes. After a young woman committed suicide recently by jumping from the Eiffel Tower and landing on the glass roof of a restaurant below, many of the patrons just continued eating their meals. Classy guys, classy.

Homeless man crushed in garbage truck, lives to tell the horribly, horribly detailed story.

On this day in history: 

1967: Actress Jayne Mansfield is decapitated in a car crash, when her convertible collides with a parked tractor-trailer.

Joss Whedon was offered and turned down a chance to work on the "new" "Buffy the Vampire" slayer film which is in development, which is reportedly a remake of the original film. Apparently producers were a little surprised at the level of negative buzz their announcement created amongst Buffy fans (really?), and so they tried to get Whedon in on the action. He wasn't biting, and so presumably they'll be going ahead with development as planned.

"Dead Bones" is a short Horror/Western that you can watch in its entirety at the link. It has gotten good buzz so far, and also stars Ken Foree, who is so fun to watch on screen he actually makes about :30 seconds of the "Halloween" remake watchable. So, your move, partner.

Reason to upgrade to Bluray: All of the special features for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will only be found on the newfangled medium. Also in today's news, the collection to "Buy Eric a Bluray Player" has officially begun. Line forms to the left.

Via his Myspace, Richard Kelly confirms that there will be a panel for his upcoming film "The Box" at the next Comic-Con. He adds, cryptically, "More news on The Box and Darko projects soon". Darko projects? Is it possible he'll be erasing the horrible taste left in my mouth from "S. Darko"? Stay tuned to find out.

In Real People News: 

Woman dies from an acute case of "Assface". And by that I mean, complications from plastic surgery involving injecting fat from her ass into her face. But ya, I like "Assface" better.

I've never really been to therapy, but I'm reasonably sure that it shouldn't involve sticking toilet brushes up people's asses. The more you know, people.

On this day in history: 

1999: Nicholas Vitalich is arrested outside a supermarket in San Diego, California for slapping his girlfriend upside the head with a large tuna. Vitalich is booked for assault with a deadly weapon

Horror Headlines: Monday June 8th, 2009

It's Eric here, back on the news beat after taking a few days off. My apologies if I end up covering a story that Casey did last week... but if I do, you'll just have to deal with it. That's called "character building", folks.

"Night of the Dead Reanimated" holds a "video art gallery" featuring some of the artists in their rendition of the Romero classic. That actually sounds like a great idea.

Yvonne Strahovski from "Chuck" to star in survivalist horror film called "The Canyon". The plot deals with a couple honeymooning in the Grand Canyon, who end up just trying to survive after meeting a "charismatic and mysterious guide".

Word from Robert Rodriguez's camp is that "Predators" will be a sequel and not a remake. There are also rumblings that they're trying to get Arnold Schwarzenegger back in some type of extended cameo, but we'll see how that turns out.

Not sure this is good news, but "Saw VI" director Kevin Gruetert calls his post production experience "mind numbingly complex". Ya, this should be interesting.

Before being released on DVD in October, Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will be doing a festival run, where you might be able to check it out if you live in one of the corresponding areas.

In Real People News: 

Either David Carradine died from some type of auto-erotic asphyxiation, or the most complicated game of Cat's Cradle ever conceived. You be the judge.

Teacher reprimanded for playing clips from "Beavis and Butthead" in his classroom. For their part, the kids had no idea what they were watching anyway, and muttered something about the "old man cartoons".

A dead body sitting in a car racked up parking tickets for weeks claim police, until a tow-truck driver finally realized what was going on.

On this day in history: 

1986: Former UN Secretary General and Nazi war criminal Kurt Waldheim is elected president of Austria. One year later, the U.S. Justice Department places him on a watch list of undesirable aliens, making Waldheim the first foreign head of state legally forbidden from visiting America.

Extended "Trick 'R Treat" Trailer, Release Date!

Looks like we finally have the answer to when Mike Doughterty's ("X2") "Trick 'r Treat" will be released, and it will not be theatrically as we had all hoped. Not that that's a big surprise, considering how long it's been on the shelf I would have been shocked if they went the theatrical route.
