Posted: 18 Jan 2019 03:36 PM PST

As scary as Venom can be, when it comes to spooky symbiotes, Carnage might just take the cake as one of the creepiest villains in the Marvel universe. While it looks like Carnage could make killer splash on the big screen in Sony's Venom sequel, you can get a look at what hellish things he's up to in just a few months when Marvel releases Web of Venom: Cult of Carnage #1.

Written by Frank Tieri and featuring artwork by Danilo S. Beyruth, Web of Venom: Cult of Carnage #1 will be released this April by Marvel. Until then, you can get a look at what's to come inbJosh Cassara's chilling cover art of Carnage and his deadly, devoted followers.

From the Press Release: "New York, NY—January 18, 2019—A new terror rises on the fringes of the Marvel Universe, stirring in the depths of space…and on Earth, evil is rising in the name of the killer called Carnage! From the superstar team of Frank Tieri (Black Knight) and Danilo S. Beyruth (Man Without Fear, Web of Venom: Carnage Born) comes a new and deadly tale…WEB OF VENOM: CULT OF CARNAGE #1!

"CARNAGE, one of the scariest villains in the Marvel Universe, is back and bringing his special brand of mayhem with him!" teased series editor Devin Lewis. "For weeks, he's been working in the shadows, but now, he and his cult of psychotic, devoted acolytes will make their presence known in the biggest, baddest, and scariest way you've ever seen."

"WEB OF VENOM: CULT OF CARNAGE is a big puzzle piece in the overall conspiracy we've been building since VENOM #1," teased Venom writer Donny Cates. "As much as CARNAGE BORN was the rebirth of Cletus Kasady, CULT OF CARNAGE will give readers a larger look at our favorite serial killer's overarching plan. Big, BIG things are coming for Venom, folks, and it begins here, in CULT OF CARNAGE! #GodIsComing!"

Ever wonder what happened the summer prior to Sabrina Spellman's pivotal 16th birthday? Scholastic is teaming up with Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to answer that question in the new prequel novel Season of the Witch.

Due out in paperback on July 9th and written by Sarah Rees Brennan, Season of the Witch's official cover art was unveiled by SYFY WIRE and can be viewed below.

Scholastic has also published tie-in books for The CW's Riverdale (which is set in the same universe as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), so it's no surprise that they're now taking readers into the creepy town limits of Greendale.

For more information, read the official synopsis (via Amazon), and keep an eye out for Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 on April 5th.

"It's the summer before her sixteenth birthday, and Sabrina Spellman knows her world is about to change. She's always studied magic and spells with her aunts, Hilda and Zelda. But she's also lived a normal mortal life -- attending Baxter High, hanging out with her friends Susie and Roz, and going to the movies with her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle.

Now time is running out on her every day, normal world, and leaving behind Roz and Susie and Harvey is a lot harder than she thought it would be. Especially because Sabrina isn't sure how Harvey feels about her. Her cousin Ambrose suggests performing a spell to discover Harvey's true feelings. But when a mysterious wood spirit interferes, the spell backfires... in a big way.

Sabrina has always been attracted to the power of being a witch. But now she can't help wondering if that power is leading her down the wrong path. Will she choose to forsake the path of light and follow the path of night?

Our exclusive prequel novel will reveal a side of Sabrina not seen on the new NETFLIX show. What choice will Sabrina make... and will it be the right one?"

Vinegar Syndrome’s February Blu-ray Releases Include WACKO, PARTY LINE, and BATTLE FOR THE LOST PLANET / MUTANT WAR

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 02:37 PM PST

While 2018 featured a plethora of high-def home media releases for horror fans to enjoy, 2019 is already looking to be an even better year with a bunch of upcoming releases from a wide range of distributors, including the folks at Vinegar Syndrome, who have announced three February 26th Blu-ray releases—Battle for the Lost Planet / Mutant War, Party Line, and Wacko—that should have cult horror and sci-fans marking their calendars with giddy anticipation.

Battle for the Lost Planet and Mutant War Blu-ray: "This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 1,500 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

In BATTLE FOR THE LOST PLANET rogue master thief Harry Trent (Matt Mitler) who, in an attempt to steal military secrets, found himself stranded alone in space for years, finally returns to earth only to discover that the planet has been taken over by vicious gangs of alien mutants. Finding himself forced into a fight for his life, Harry is soon discovered and taken in by a beautiful warrior (Denise Coward) and her resistance group who hope to outwit the extra terrestrial invaders and reclaim the planet.

MUTANT WAR continues the story, finding Harry still at odds with conquering aliens, but this time having to contend with an even deadlier enemy: another human. After meeting a young girl who begs him to help save her family, Harry learns of power hungry deviate Reinhart Rex, a futuristic white slaver that kidnaps young women for breeding purposes. Can Harry outwit Reinhart while still escaping the clutches of flesh eating mutants?

Two early features from celebrated sci-fi director and practical effects artist Brett Piper, BATTLE FOR THE LOST PLANET and MUTANT WAR are chock full of Ray Harryhausen inspired stop motion animation and epic no-budget battle sequences. Vinegar Syndrome presents these two nearly impossible to see rarities on disc for the first time anywhere in the world!

directed by: Brett Piper
starring: Matt Mitler, Denise Coward, Cameron Mitchell, Joe Gentissi, Deborah Quayle
1985/1988 / 182 min / 1.85:1

Features Include:

Party Line Blu-ray: "This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 2,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

Brother and sister Seth and Angelina live a secluded life in their family's beautiful Beverly Hills mansion. But these upper class siblings share a dark and violent hobby of using sexually driven 'party lines' to meet and lure lustful strangers into a deadly ménage à trois, the climax of which is a razor slash to the throat! With the victim count steadily rising, Detective Dan is under the gun to crack the case, but when his girlfriend falls prey to the maniacal duo, Dan goes rogue, taking his own violent measures to dispense justice.

Juxtaposing a slasher film setup with police drama and erotic thriller plot points, William Webb's PARTY LINE is a forgotten oddity, bridging the late 80s slasher craze with the soon to rise early 90s 'skinemax' obsession. Starring Leif Garret (Devil Times Five), Shawn Weatherly (Baywatch), Richard Roundtree (Shaft), and Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica) and stylishly photographed by renowned visual effects cinematographer, John Huneck (The Terminator), Vinegar Syndrome brings PARTY LINE to Blu-ray for the first time, newly restored in 4k from its original 35mm negative.

Wacko Blu-ray: "This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 2,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

Thirteen years ago, at the Halloween Pumpkin Prom, the infamous Lawnmower Killer went on a brutal rampage, murdering several high school students, including Mary Graves' older sister, traumatizing her for life. Now, after the unexpected escape of a prisoner from the state mental hospital, who may or may not be the killer, it's up to hard-nosed gumshoe Dick Harbinger to solve the case before the Lawnmower Killer seeks out a new slew of victims at the upcoming Pumpkin Prom, that is if anyone is able to survive the hilarious horror hijinks leading up to it!

A raucous parody of horror films and teen sex comedies, predating the Scary Movie franchise by nearly two decades, director Greydon Clark's (Joysticks) WACKO features a mind blowing ensemble cast including Joe Don Baker (Goldeneye, Fletch), Stella Stevens (The Poseidon Adventure), George Kennedy (Charade), Charles Napier (The Blues Brothers, Supervixens), Julia Duffy (The Doctors) and Andrew Dice Clay in his first feature film role! Never officially released on DVD and barely available in any format since the 80s, Vinegar Syndrome brings this sidelined chunk of horror-comedy gold to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4k from its long lost camera negative!

Fine Press Limited Edition of Ira Levin’s ROSEMARY’S BABY Coming from Suntup Editions, Including Introduction by Jordan Peele

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 12:46 PM PST

With their limited edition signed copies of Misery and their prints of artwork from the book covers of Pet Sematary, 'Salem's Lot, and IT, the Suntup Editions has given book collectors unique ways to celebrate the legendary Stephen King, and now the publisher has turned its attention to Ira Levin's classic novel, Rosemary's Baby, with a gorgeous fine press limited edition featuring an introduction by filmmaker Jordan Peele.

You can pre-order the fine press limited edition (250 copies) and lettered edition (limited to 26 copies) of Rosemary's Baby beginning Saturday, January 19th at 9:00am PST on Suntup Editions' website. In the meantime, we have a gallery of images and the official press release with more info on the new publication of Levin's classic work of fiction.

Press Release: IRVINE, CA, January 16, 2019 – Suntup Editions, publisher of fine limited edition books and art prints, is delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Ira Levin's classic novel Rosemary's Baby, with an exclusive introduction by Academy Award winning writer/director Jordan Peele.

One of the bestselling horror novels of all-time, Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin is considered by many to be the "grand daddy" of horror fiction. Selling 4 million copies upon its publication in 1967, the novel's success launched a new wave of books in the horror genre, while critics heralded it "one of the most perfectly crafted thrillers ever written." Only one year after the novel's release, Rosemary's Baby was adapted into an Academy Award winning motion picture directed by Roman Polanski. Author Ira Levin called the film "the single most faithful adaptation of a novel ever to come out of Hollywood."

When Rosemary Woodhouse and her husband Guy, a struggling actor, move into a mysterious old apartment building in New York City, they are immediately greeted by elderly neighbors Roman and Minnie Castavet. Guy is quick to make friends with the eccentric pair, but Rosemary has reservations. Soon thereafter, Guy lands a major role, Rosemary becomes pregnant, and the strange neighbors begin taking a heightened interest in Rosemary's welfare. As Rosemary's suspicions grow, she finds herself isolated from her husband, and certain that the Castavets' intentions are not at all what they seem.

In 2017, director Jordan Peele cited the novel Rosemary's Baby among his greatest influences in writing Get Out for which he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, along with nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. Peele has written an introduction to Rosemary's Baby exclusively for this edition.

This edition also features an afterword by Ira Levin, originally written for New American Library's 2003 release.


This fine press edition of Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin is limited to 267 copies for sale, and is presented in two states: Lettered and Limited. Both editions measure 6¼" x 9¼" and feature six black & white illustrations by Richey Beckett, as well as the introduction by Jordan Peele. Both editions are signed by Richey Beckett and Jordan Peele, and are printed letterpress.

Limited Edition

The Limited edition is a quarter leather binding and is limited to 250 copies for sale. The leather spine is foil-stamped, and the boards are covered in Japanese cloth. Endpapers feature flecks of metallic gold and silver, and the edition is printed letterpress on Mohawk Superfine. It is housed in a custom cloth-covered slipcase.

Lettered Edition

The lettered edition is limited to 26 copies for sale, lettered A-Z and is printed letterpress on Mouldmade Zerkall paper. It is a full leather binding with a foil stamped spine, and glass eyes inset into leather-formed eyelids on the cover. Endpapers are hand marbled in Germany on Hahnemühle Ingres paper. The edition is housed in a custom 'bassinet' enclosure with a unique rocking bookbed.

Suntup Editions

Since its launch in late 2016, Suntup Editions has garnered the attention of fans, bloggers, and journalists alike. Their stunning premiere project The Eyes of the Dragon Art Portfolio with Lettered and Numbered Editions signed by David Palladini, along with The Covers Collection, limited edition fine art prints featuring original cover art from the novels by Stephen King, made Suntup Editions the ultimate "one to watch" and one of the fastest rising new printing presses on the scene.

In early 2018, Suntup Editions announced it would publish the world's first limited edition of Misery, which was released with not only the blessing but bearing the signature of Stephen King himself. This was followed by the announcement of a limited edition of Shirley Jackson's classic novel, The Haunting of Hill House, as well as a signed limited edition of Horns by Joe Hill. Rosemary's Baby will mark Suntup's fourth book release.

The mission of the press is to publish finely crafted limited editions, by collaborating with some of today's leading writers, artists, designers, printers and bookmakers to create an edition that is itself, an art object. By incorporating elements of the story into the design and production of the books, their editions offer a unique reading experience.

Publication is scheduled for Summer 2019 and will be available for pre-order at https://shop.suntup.press from 9:00 am Pacific time on Saturday, January 19, 2019.

MPI Media Group Wraps Production on DARK SHADOWS Documentary

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 10:51 AM PST

Through its initial airings and reruns of Dark Shadows, generations of horror fans spent afternoons in the formative years at the Collinwood mansion, where the vampire Barnabas Collins crossed paths with devious humans and all manner of monsters. In 2016, Dark Shadows celebrated its 50th anniversary, and now MPI Media Group has wrapped production on Master of Dark Shadows, a new documentary featuring interviews with fans of the series and the cast members themselves.

Masters of Dark Shadows is slated for release this spring, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, we have the official press release with more details:

Press Release: MPI Media Group today announced it has completed production on the highly anticipated MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS, a comprehensive celebration of the legendary Gothic daytime series Dark Shadows and its visionary creator, Dan Curtis. The feature documentary, which was shot in New York, LA and London, includes interviews with key actors and filmmakers involved in the undyingly popular story of vampire Barnabas Collins and all the eerie goings-on at the gloomy Maine mansion Collinwood. The documentary was directed by David Gregory(Lost Soul, Godfathers of Mondo)and is set to be released this spring.

Narrated by Ian McShane (Deadwood), MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS offers insights from Curtis himself in addition to Oscar-winning writer-producer Alan Ball (True Blood), screenwriter William F. Nolan (Trilogy of Terror), author Herman Wouk (The Winds Of War), veteran actors Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday)and Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire), Dark Shadows stars Jonathan Frid, David Selby, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, John Karlen, Nancy Barrett, Jerry Lacy, Roger Davis, Marie Wallace, Chris Pennock and James Storm, plus other colleagues and family members.

In 1966, a phenomenon was launched when Dark Shadows debuted on ABC-TV as a daily Gothic suspense series. Airing in the late afternoon, the show attracted a massive youth audience as it shifted to the supernatural with the introduction of vulnerable vampire Barnabas Collins. Witches, ghosts and scary story lines turned Dark Shadows into a TV classic that led to motion pictures, remakes, reunions and legions of devoted fans who have kept the legend alive for five decades.

The feature-length documentary MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS reveals the fascinating history, far-reaching impact and lasting appeal of Dark Shadows with a compelling blend of rare footage and behind-the-scenes stories while also exploring the dramatic talents of creator-producer-director Dan Curtis. Known as the "King of TV Horror," the Emmy-winning filmmaker followed Dark Shadows with other iconic genre favorites including The Night Stalker, Trilogy of Terror and Burnt Offerings before earning accolades for the epic miniseries The Winds of War and War and Remembrance.
