If You're In Northeast Ohio Then I've Got Your Tickets To THE STRANGERS
Dave Dreher


May 25, 2008, 8:3 AM

I love the TV spots for THE STRANGERS.  It is really one of the few teasers that sends chills down my spine and I know that I can't wait to check it out and on May 27th I will do just that as ROGUE PICTURES hosts a special advance screening in Cleveland Ohio and I would like you to join me.

I've got passes to the 7:30 PM special screening and if you're in the Northern Ohio area then one of these babies are all yours.

If you're interested in checking out THE STRANGERS then send me an email here right now and you are in.  Can't beat that for easy.

In case you've been asleep for the last month, here is the synopsis of all the goodness:

Lock the doors. Assume you're safe.

The horrifying events that took place in the Hoyt family's vacation home at 1801 Clark Road on February 11, 2005, are still not entirely known.

Champagne. Rose petals. Candlelight. It was supposed to be a night of celebration for Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt (Scott Speedman). But after leaving a friend's wedding reception and returning to the house, everything had collapsed for the happy couple.

Then came a 4 a.m. knock on the door and a haunting voice.

Is Tamara here?

Writer/director Bryan Bertino explores our most universal fears in The Strangers, a terrifying suspense thriller about a couple whose remote getaway becomes a place of terror when masked strangers invade. The confrontation forces Kristen and James to go far beyond what they thought themselves capable of if they hope to survive.

CLICK HERE if you can make it to Cleveland Ohio on May 27th and you're going to see it for free.

Make sure to include your full name and address.

CONTEST: Win A Signed One Sheet From THE STRANGERS
Dave Dreher


May 15, 2008, 9:47 PM

Have you seen the commercial running on TV for this film.  Probably one of the creepiest moments this year is when Liv Tyler asks that creep in the mask "why are you doing this to us?" and the creep answers "because you were home.".

I love it.

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, find it and watch it.  I haven't seen this film yet but I'm getting a real good vibe about it.

Anyway, I've got a cool little contest for you and if you win then you get that one sheet you see there on the right and it's autographed to boot.

I also have two posters that are unsigned, so we'll hand out all three. 

Can't beat that right?

Just send me your name and mailing info here and you'll be in.  I'll choose the winners the day the film opens on May 30th.  The winner will be notified by email.  Make sure to send me your complete mailing info, including zip code or your entry will be tossed.

Good luck to you and make sure to check out THE STRANGERS on May 30th.

Enter The Cellar Door DVD Giveaway


Apr 9, 2008, 1:25 AM

Today, The Cellar Door (trailer) is being released on DVD and the folks behind the film have sent over (5) copies of the film for use to giveaway to our loyal readers and fellow horror fanatics.

Unfortunately, I haven't seen the film, so here is the synopsis from the official press release:

A young woman awakes to find herself imprisoned in a serial killer?s basement. She is not the first to be entrapped in this diabolical torture chamber. She is not the first to captivate his perverse affection, Herman (James DuMont, WINNER Best Acting Performance Shriekfest) has been searching for the perfect girl, but all he?s collected are pieces ? a chunk of hair; a severed finger; a jar of blood ? and now, the alluring and beautiful Rudy (Michelle Tomlinson, WINNER Pretty/Scary Award Shriekfest).

Imprisoned in a wooden cage and yet refusing to play along in his twisted game, she has only her wits to use against his savage and murderous insanity. Will she win the desperate, hallucinatory game of cat and mouse and escape through the Cellar Door, or die trying?

To enter for a chance to win a copy of this DVD, send an email to with the subject The Cellar Door and make sure to include your name and mailing address.

Visit the offical site.

The Cellar Door is  now available on DVD at
