Assorted Bits & Pieces: Hudson Horror Show 5, Tales From Development Hell & Hammer's Next Horror!


On Saturday, May 19th, 2012, the hallowed grounds of the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 will once again showcase the greatest classic horror film festival in the Hudson Valley, Hudson Horror Show V! Our fifth 12 hour movie festival will feature five full length classic genre films along with shorts and drive in style trailers, all of rare 35mm film prints!

Our December to Dismember 2011 show was a sell out with people having to be seated in our “reserved for staff seats”. Don’t miss out, grab your tickets now! This is our third year of shows and ticket prices are still only $26.00 in advance via PayPal. Advance ticket holders save money and will be admitted first. If any tickets remain they will be available at the door on the day of the show for $30.00, cash only.

Our Frankenstein like monster of a lineup is still being assembled slowly, piece by bloody piece. While we cannot divulge the full lineup yet, we can tell you that we have our two “headliners” ready. We’ve screened quite a few zombie movies, but we have yet to run anything by the Godfather himself. Hudson Horror Show is very proud to present a rare screening of George A. Romero’s DAY OF THE DEAD. Our co-headlining feature is another classic in its right, the often requested nightmarish masterpiece starring everyone’s favorite “Tall Man”, PHANTASM!

In addition to the headlining films above, we’ll have three other full length features which will be announced in the coming weeks. Watch our website, Facebook and your email in-box for the future announcements. Be sure to sign up for our email list so you’ll be the first to know when our other films are announced.

We’ll have just a few vendor spots for HHV, if you are interested in selling or promoting your wares, or if you just have questions regarding our show, send us an email to Keep your eyes on our website ( and Facebook pages for more announcements, get your tickets early for Hudson Horror Show V, and we’ll see you on May 19th, 2012!

PRESS RELEASE FOR TITAN BOOKS TALES FROM DEVELOPMENT HELL revised and updated edition for release February 28th, 2012!

A compulsively readable journey into the area of filmmaking where all writers, directors and stars fear to tread: Development Hell, the place where scripts are written, actors are hired and sets designed...but the films rarely actually get made!

Whatever happened to Darren Aronofsky's BATMAN movie starring Clint Eastwood? Why were there so many scripts written over the years for Steven Spielberg and George Lucas's fourth Indiana Jones movie? Why was Lara Croft's journey to the big screen so torturous, and what prevented Paul Verhoeven from filming what he calls "one of the greatest scripts ever written"? Why did Ridley Scott's CRISIS IN THE HOT ZONE collapse days away from filming, and were the Beatles really set to star in LORD OF THE RINGS? What does Neil Gaiman think of the attempts to adapt his comic book series The Sandman? All these lost projects, and more, are covered in this major book, which features many exclusive interviews with the writers and directors involved.

A review is forthcoming on this book....



8th February 2012: Guy East and Nigel Sinclair, Co-Chairmen of Exclusive Media and Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer announced today that Hammer's latest supernatural thriller/horror, THE QUIET ONES, will be presented for the first time at the upcoming European film Market (EFM).

Written and to be directed by John Pogue (QUARANTINE 2) and produced by James Gay-Rees, THE QUIET ONES marks Hammer's follow up to Daniel Radcliffe's THE WOMAN IN BLACK, which was released last weekend in the US on 3,000 screens grossing an outstanding $21 million.

Inspired by true events, THE QUIET ONES tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined.

John Pogue said: "THE QUIET ONES will take its audience on a thrilling ride of jumps, scares and eerie tingles which combined with set pieces of unbearable tension will propel them through the shadowy chambers that imprison the tortured mind. It's a dark and claustrophobic picture which will portray how human desire can become trapped in an insidious world of its own creation and how you should careful what you wish for."

The WOMAN IN BLACK opens February 10, 2012 in the United Kingdom.
