I didn’t make it down to the Fangoria convention, but you can read all about it at these links from Horror Movie a Day:
If (like me) you are too lazy to click through links, here are the highlights:
- Producer Rob Tapert says that BOOGEYMAN 3 is in the editing room and production begins on GRUDGE 3 this Monday. Can’t say I’m excited about either one. Basically, the second GRUDGE sequel will have a new creative team, meaning the American producers have jettisoned those pesky Japanese filmmakers so that they can totally waterdown the franchise.
- Clive Barker has several projects in the works, including one called DREAD, from the producer of MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN.
- John Landis (AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) and Larry Fessenden (HABIT) will be directing episodes of NBC’s upcoming FEAR ITSELF (sort of MASTERS OF HORROR toned down for network television)
- Actor Tony Todd has not been signed for FINAL DESTINATION 4, but he will be back for HATCHET 2 (director Adam Green included him in the first one on the assumption that any sequel could use him to develop the back story further).
The Fangoria Weekend of Horrors is coming to the Los Angeles Convnetion Center next month. Guests include: George Romero, Clive Barker, Angus Scrimm, Sid Haig, Ray Wise, Ken Foree, Michael Pare, Corbin Bernsen, and over 70 other horror celebrities. There will be a 40th anniversary cast-and-crew reunion screening of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (like the one that took place at the Texas Frightmare Weekend earlier this month, which we covered here).
Hollywood Gothique and Cinefantastique are teaming up to get you into the convention – for free. We are giving away six general admission passes to the convention, which takes place on the weekend of April 25-27.
