Horror Posters From Comc Con

Augist 2, 2007 -- Here's a roundup of the horror posters that turned up at this year's Comic Con, as posted at FirstShowing, including one for the new Clive Barker film "Midnight Meat Train."

"Pathology," a horror film from the makers of "Crank," is about some med students who dare each other to commit the perfect murder. Alyssa Milano of "Embrace of the Vampire" is in it. "Southland Tales" is apparently from the director of "Donnie Darko." "Midnight Meat Train" may be of the most interest to folks. "Train" is based on Clive Barker's 1984 short story of the same name and follows a NYC photographer (Bradley Cooper) who attempts to track down a serial killer dubbed the "Subway Butcher" and discovers more than he bargained for under the city streets. Director Ryuhei Kitamura helmed the excellent "Versus" along with "Godzilla: Final Wars."

Bad 'Grind House' News

July 28, 2007 -- Some news that has come out of Comic Con about 'Grind House': The films are being divided into two separate films for disc and the faux trailers won't be part of the package. “Doomsday is hugely inspired by the films I grew up with, post apocalyptic thrillers - Mad Max, Road Warriors. I wouldn’t say it's a horror movie but I would say it's a dark and brutal action thriller." It came out during the presentation of Edgar Wright and Nick Frost (directors of "Shaun of the Dead") on "Hot Fuzz." ... "Descent" director Neil Marshall also previewed his non-horror film "Doomsday," saying it was a $30 million film made to look like a $100 million one. For more on "Doomsday" click here.
