‘Nocturnals’ Creator Dan Brereton: The Horror News Network Interview

If you are a fan of monster comics and monster artwork , Dan Brereton should be no stranger to you.  Whether it is through his beloved creator-owned titles The Nocturnals and Doc Horror, his work on Batman and Superman mini-series, or his cover artwork for Rob Zombie albums, his distinct style is one that has captured fan interest for nearly 30 years.

While the artist continues to work in all aspects of the comics medium, in recent years, Brereton has taken his popular art books and comics directly to his fans through a number of wildly successful Kickstarter campaigns.  Brereton took some time from his busy illustrating schedule to speak to us about his latest Nocturnals Portfolio project as well as many aspects of his long career, and a number of exciting future projects. read more

Danny Trejo Joins the Cast of Zombie’s ‘3 From Hell’

Rondo rides again.  According to horror fiend Rob Zombie, by way of his Instagram account, veteran bad-ass Danny Trejo will reprise his role from The Devil’s Rejects for Zombie’s new film, 3 From Hell.  Trejo joins an impressive list of actors already announced for the project, with new additions being announced by social media posts seemingly ever other day. Mr. Zombie’s post can be seen below.

Hell, currently shooting principal photography, will once again follow the infamous (and apparently bullet-dodging) Firefly Family as they terrorize and victimize innocent and unfortunate citizens.  These folks, Otis, Baby and Captain Spaulding, were last seen crumpled over in a bloody heap through the windshield of a still-moving convertible under a hail of sheriffs’ bullets but appear to have survived.  Since no other details have yet been provided by either Zombie or distributor Lionsgate, we’ve been left to assume that the three killers (Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley and Sid Haig will once again star) return from the dead to seek revenge.  Trejo’s addition would then make sense, as Rondo was one of the hired guns that tracked down the trio for vigilante Sheriff Wydell in an act of retribution.  Could DDP be far behind, as his character Billy Ray Snapper was Rondo’s partner.  One can only hope… read more

Rob Zombie Confirms ‘Devil’s Rejects’ Follow-Up

Rumors have been swirling for months about the possibility of Rob Zombie secretly working on a third film featuring that wacky Firefly family that he introduced the world to with 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses and then the 2005 sequel The Devil’s Rejects. Well, Mr. Zombie announced to the world today via his Instagram account that filming has begun on 3 From Hell (or Three from Hell).

While there is no word on casting yet, not even an IMDB page for the film, we can see by the hashtags that, at the very least, Rob’s wife Sheri Moon Zombie (Baby Firefly) and Bill Moseley (Otis) are returning for the action; no word yet on whether fan-favorite Sid Haig (Captain Spaulding) also survived that hail of bullets at the end of Devil’s Rejects (spoiler alert). read more

Rob Zombie will host 13 Nights of Halloween Films for HDNET Movies

Many older horror fans miss the days of the classic “horror movie hosts”.   Starting with Vampira and Zacherley, and continuing with many regional hosts from around the country such as “Chilly Billy”, Ghoulardi, and Svengoolie, these hosts brought humor and commentary to these late night features.

In the syndication and cable era of the 1980’s, the trend continued with Elvira, Commander USA, and Joe Bob Briggs.  Unfortunately, most of the hosts were done by the late 90’s, but they would sometimes return for special Halloween programming. read more
