Lucas Mangum’s Horror Corner: FEB 19-25

Lucas Mangum’s Horror Corner is a weekly roundup of recent horror-related posts from around the web; a handy guide to the notable horror happenings of the past week.  Enjoy…

***

The irreverent horror of Piranha 3DD is on its way.  Bloody Disgusting gave us a peek at the international poster.

Last Tuesday saw the DVD and VOD release of the Robert Englund and William Forsythe starring Inkubus. (Dread Central)

Courtesy of IMDB, the trailer for The Raven went live.  With the public’s recent rekindled love of Poe and John Cusack’s acting chops, this has potential to be very successful. (Dread Central)

Mother’s Day is a beloved horror film from the old days, and while I personally don’t care for remakes, I think Bousmann’s unique visual style could add an interesting edge to the film. (Fangoria)

Interesting to see that the filmmakers of Insidious are bringing back two secondary characters for the sequel.  I think the characters of Specs and Tucker could probably warrant their own film, so I’m curious to see if they will be fleshed out into larger roles. (Fangoria)

If you don’t like clowns, you might want to steer clear of this trailer.  Carnieville tells the story of a girl trying to conquer her fear of clowns by attending a carnival.  Unfortunately for her, she has a reason to be afraid. (Dread Central)

Hammer opens its archive of scripts for restoration and study.  This should excite all of you. (Deadline)

Be sure to drop by Dread Central throughout March as they celebrate Indie Horror Month!

Any horror or science fiction nerd should be excited about the prospect of Jeff Leiberman interviewing Rod Serling.  Find the audio for it over at Fangoria.

Edgar Wright and Johnny Depp working on a reimagining of Kolchak-The Night Stalker?  Sign me up! (Deadline)

Our friends at Dread Central gave us the 2nd trailer for Inbred, the controversial horror film from the UK.  This one is bound to appeal to the inbred redneck in all of us…

Daniel von Bargen, star of Lord of Illusions and Super Troopers, was hospitalized due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound last week.  As a fan of his work in the horror genre and outside of it, this is sad news indeed.  According to ABC, his condition is improving. (Bloody Disgusting)

Robert Kirkman interview with IGN reveals a bit about the future of the popular Walking Dead series.  He also discusses the differences between the show and the comics.

The Punisher versus a bear in Red Machine…wow…

Ever since the release of The Blair Witch Project, I have wanted to see more output from the filmmakers.  Unfortunately, their output has been few and far between.  Half of that team, Eduardo Sanchez, is about to see the release of his anticipated film, Lovely Molly, this May. (Bloody Disgusting)

Horror fans like me have giallo films in our blood.  Federico Zampagliones’ Tulpa promises many of the elements that made those movies special.  Shooting begins on March 5th, but for now you can check out some new images over at Splatter Container.

Lina Romay, actress and filmmaker most famous for her work in Jess Franco’s films, unfortunately passed away last week.  She was 57 and quite prolific during her time in film.  She will certainly be missed by fans. (Dread Central)

I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t tremble at the mention of camel spiders.  In the hands of Roger Corman and Jim Wynorski, the film Camel Spiders is more likely to make you laugh than shudder in fear. (Fangoria)

Redneck slasher film Madison County comes to DVD and Digital download on May 8th.  Nothing like a serial killer in a pig’s mask wielding an axe to fuck up your day… (Fangoria)
