Are good horror films finally making a come back? I'm looking forward to seeing Hannibal next month. Sam Raimi's The Gift which opens this Friday looks interesting. What do you think?

I'll cross my fingers on these but who knows.If they don't deliver I still have high hopes for House of 1000 corpses.

I saw the Gift and it was damn boring. Some scenes reminded me a lot of What Lies Beneath (there is even a bathtub scene!). A major letdown fron Raimi.

even though it kinda goes by quick you have to give raimi, billy bob, rob or whoever lots o' props for that.

What happened to The Convent? I've been dying to see this fun, gory flick and it's still not out!

You must see "The Convent" You must see "The Convent" This is the most killer awesome horror/comedy I have seen since Evil Dead II or Dead Alive! They just don't make them like this anymore, until now! I cannot recommend this movie more to all of you horror fans! This is a MUST see!

I actually liked last year's House on Haunted Hill remake. Some good bits in that, and an overall fun film. Or was it the year before...?

I'm definitely excited for Hannibal, but the new Fango (I think it's in an interview with the director) says they changed the ending somewhat. The novel's ending really took me by surprise & I hope the movie doesn't jack it up too bad http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/frown.gif

That version of "House..." was '99, Napalm. I really enjoyed it too, by the way.

again...

House of 1000 Corpses
Ed Gein
All American Massacre

those are my 3 bets, though it now seems unlikely that AAM will see the light of day.

There's a R2 DVD out for it, but no R1! http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/frown.gif

I saw the convent at the central florida film festival last year. my friends and me made certain that we were there early. i suppose working for the festival and seeing it for free many, many months before it's realease was a HUGE plus! But all gloating aside, you will not be disapointed.

I'm expecting The Gift to be a letdown for me... Only reason that I am gonna see The Gift anyways is because we see Katie Holmes breasts. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/smile.gif It's true, It's true.

Yeah, there is a R2 DVD of The Convent out although its not widescreen.. I don't know of anything else that comes on it. Is there a R1 DVD planned?

I really don't have alot of interest in new horror movies these days (since I have so much catching up to do watching the old stuff) but The Convent looks damn cool and hearing you guys mention Evil Dead 2 along with it makes me want to see it badly. Other than that, the only things I'm really looking forward to is Shadow of the Vampire, 1000 Corpses and Elvira's Haunted Hills which looks pretty cool.

Landrvr - what have you heard about AMM not seeing the light of day? Isn't that the TCM sequel done by Tobe Hoopers son, and reprising Bill Mosely as Chop Top? I read an interview with Mosely somewhere, and no mention about it getting canned.

Strangely enough, Bill Mosely is in both the aforementioned House of 1000 Corpses and The Covenant. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/smile.gif Serendipity or what...

The Covenant is available on DVD in both the UK and Germany...

napalm68:

well, the AAM was supposed to have been released on the web on Halloween 2000. this date came and went. they issued a statement saying that, due to complications, it will need to be pushed back to november/december. then the production company said that Hooper's son was adding more footage, and turning it into a feature length film - instead of the short film format that was originally planned.

now, for at least 5 weeks or so, the AAM website has been down. the word that i've been hearing in many forums is that there are various problems cropping up with the copyrights. who owns the franchise, and that kind of crap. i'm on the mailing list, and it's been weeks since they have sent out an update.

maybe it'll happen, but i'm not keeping my fingers crossed. hopefully, Hooper is turning it into a full length film. the trailer and stills were awesome.

I'm going to break down and order the R2 disc of Convent. It sounds just too good to resist. I'm also a bit concerned about it ever getting a real release in the (US) theaters. I have this same concern for Ed Gein as well. Neither Convent or Ed Gein have US distributors at the moment. That's not a good thing... http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/frown.gif
