By the end of 2013, Derek Mears will longer be known principally as the guy who took on the legendary mask of Jason Voorhees in the FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot. His turn inside a remarkable creature suit as Edward the Troll is being cited as one of the best things in the just-released HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, and later this year he tussles with fellow Jason Kane Hodder in HATCHET III. He discusses those roles and more in this exclusive Fangoria interview.
Bruce Campbell revealed via his Twitter feed that the new EVIL DEAD will be released one week earlier than originally planned, setting the date for April 5th.
Variety reports that legendary director David Cronenberg is set to co-star alongside Isabelle Huppert and Denis Lavant in the adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel The Body Artist.
A new twist on the haunted-house theme is explored in THE LOST TREE, a supernatural thriller coming later this year. Fangoria got an exclusive first pic and words with the film’s creator, Brian A. Metcalf.
Image Entertainment is bringing Andrew Weiner’s THE FRANKENSTEIN THEORY to VOD and select theaters on March 1st, with the DVD release set for March 26th. Dig the synopsis: When he is suspended from his university job for his outlandish ideas, Professor John Venkenheim leads a documentary film crew to the rim of the Arctic Circle in a desperate effort to vindicate his academic reputation. The object of his ridicule? His obscure theory that Shelley’s literary classic is, in fact, a work of non-fiction disguised as fantasy. (Shock Til You Drop)
