The Last Horror Blog: 'Beyond Terror: The Films of Lucio Fulci,' George Romero's Next and More

May 25, 2017

FAB Press reveals new edition of Beyond Terror: The Films of Lucio Fulci – if you love reading about horror movies, odds are you’ve heard of FAB Press. The UK publisher has been putting out gorgeous books about cult cinema and filmmakers for years – and now, one of their best book is getting an update.

Stephen Thrower’s Beyond Terror: The Films of Lucio Fulci has been one of the definitive examinations of the Godfather of Gore’s work since it debuted over a decade ago. Now, Thrower and FAB Press are back with an all-new expanded version that delves even deeper into Fulci’s oeuvre.

The new version is not only expanded by 128 pages, but also includes a DVD. Check out FAB Press’ Indiegogo campaign to pre-order your copy. Trust me, if you love Fulci, you want this book.

 

Resident Evil reboot in the works Remember earlier this year when Resident Evil: The Final Chapter came out and that was the end of the Resident Evil movies? Yeah, well, not so fast…

Constantin Films has announced that dead just won’t stay dead – and that Resident Evil is set to return with a six film reboot that will seemingly keep Capcom’s zombies on the big screen for at least another decade.

No word yet on who will direct or star (or the direction the new films will take…), but it seems unlikely that series veterans Paul W.S. Anderson and wife Milla Jovovich will return in a major capacity.

With the future wide open, now’s the time to dream – who would you want to see tackling a Resident Evil reboot? Maybe it’s finally time to bring George Romero back into the fold…I mean, what could it hurt?

 

George Romero reveals next projectSpeaking of George Romero, the zombie film icon has revealed his next project – although he won’t be working behind the camera.

Romero’s written a new zombie film – tentatively titled George A. Romero Presents: Road of the Dead. The new feature is being described as “Road Warrior meets Rollerball at a NASCAR race”, which sounds pretty strange. Here are the basic plot details:

“The story is set on an island where zombie prisoners race cars in a modern-day coliseum for the entertainment of wealthy humans.“

All righty, then – that sounds…weird.

Romero won’t be directing this new entry. That responsibility falls to Matt Birman, who did second unit direction on Romero’s Land of the Dead and Diary of the Dead.

Expect more details on this one in the weeks and months ahead.

 

Tales From the Crypt complete box set announcedHBO’s Tales From the Crypt is one of horror’s most venerable television series – having run for seven seasons on the cable network. Over the course of that run, we saw some huge stars in unforgettable episodes – and while HBO offered up season sets, there’s never been one giant box set that collected all the seasons…until now.

On June 6, fans will be able to purchase the whole series. The catches are two-fold, though. First, this is only on DVD apparently, as no Blu-ray release has been announced. Boo. Why would you do this?

Second, this set doesn’t appear to bring anything new to the table. It looks as though it’s simply the previously released individual seasons in a collector’s box without any new extras or goodies. That will certainly discourage those of you who already own the seasons from picking up the new set, but if you don’t own them already this might be the time to dive in. Or, maybe we all just hold out for the inevitable Blu-ray collection that has to be coming at some point. The choice is really yours.

Horror on the Horizon

With summer kicking into full swing now, it’s no shock that there aren’t any horror flicks playing in the theater. Superheroes have taken over, so if you’re looking for a good chiller, you’re going to have catch something in limited release, on disc, or through your local VOD service. It’s a bummer, but what can you do? I mean, besides going to see Wonder Woman?

 

Horror on Home Video

The real bummer is that there aren’t exactly a ton of releases on the Blu-ray market for the next two weeks either.

May 30 sees the arrival of Blackenstein, which is guaranteed to appeal to any fans of Blaxploitation cinema. Also on the docket is another beloved cult classic, Evil Ed.

The first week of June has more volume when it comes to releases, but nothing that really stands out for horror fans. It’s great to get 4K releases of Ex Machina and Dredd, but they’re not exactly horror films. We do get the season one set for Van Helsing, though – so I guess there’s that.
