Nightmare Cinema | Trailers From Hell

Renfield head honcho Joe Dante has a brand new movie out this summer! It's the horror anthology chiller "Nightmare Cinema," in the grand tradition of "Creepshow" and "Dead of Night." Five unique horror directors (including Joe) have made five unique horror shorts, all in one spooky flick. Check out "Nightmare" mastermind Mick Garris's Trailers From Hell preview commentary to get the full scoop.

Horror anthologies are always awesome. Whether they’re recounting The ABCs of Death or telling Tales from the Crypt, a group of ghost stories told over a cinematic campfire is a good time waiting to happen. Now, a new entry into this classic genre construction is on its way — and we’ve got a s...

I'm devastated to report that one of my best friends and most treasured collaborators has passed away.
I "grew up" (kinda) watching Dick Miller in movies from the 50s on and was thrilled to have him in my first movie for Roger Corman.

We hit it off and every script thereafter I always looked for a role for Dick--not just because he was my friend but because I loved watching him act! But he leaves behind over a hundred performances, a biography and a documentary-- not bad for a guy who hardly ever enjoyed a starring role.
