Universal has now pushed CIRQUE DU FREAK, vampire flick based on the Darren Shan book series, from its original loosely tossed about release slot of summer/fall 2009 to January 15, 2010 (a date the studio says will be its final answer). While this new date is a bummer for fans of the series anxiously waiting for the adaptation, it is beginning to turn the first quarter of 2010 into a jammed-packed horror smorgasbord as slew of other fright films are also poised to hit the screen during that time, including Lionsgate’s DAYBREAKERS, Joss Whedon's THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, and Screen Gems’ LEGION.
We will continue to update you on this and other projects.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the overwhelming response to LATIN HORROR and it series of Latin horror screenings. Your support is going a long way toward getting the word out about this venture to put this very worthwhile genre on the map.
I also wanted to inform you that we now have many more RSVPs than the capacity of the Anthology Film Archives will allow for the "The HORRORphiles #2 - Scaring up a Revolución" screenings, taking place on Saturday, April 4th. And since it's "general seating," I encourage you to come early and purchase your ticket(s) at the box office to ensure entry.
AND, if you arrive between 6:30 and 7pm, we will have complimentary "bloody mary" cocktail shots in the lobby for all our guests as a way to get you into the LATIN HORROR mood.
LATIN HORROR (LH) is the first English-language venue dedicated to the fans of the genre of Latin horror and will feature the leading Latin/Hispanic/international "dark creative expressionists" working in film, theater, music, photography, illustration, graphic novels, "dark art" novelas, comic books, literature, and games—from the seasoned masters—to the up-and-coming Latin horrorphile whose work is grounded in horror, the macabre, and gothic arts.
