Dread Central's Best & Worst of 2008

**Note: This will be at the top for a bit; new stories will appear below!** It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of remakes -- also known as the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of bad, it was the epoch of incredible; it was the season of fright, it was the season of dumb; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair -- and man, did we have a lot of it; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; some flicks took us directly to heaven, others took us the other way. The year was 2008, and it was pretty memorable.

Splinter director talks sequel possibilities, Grudge 3

Screen Daily chatted recently with Splinter director Toby Wilkins, who has been enjoying the positive response to his indie creature feature (including our review here), and is awaiting Sony Pictures’ direct-to-dvd release of his next feature, The Grudge 3, which he helmed in Bulgaria.

The newest entry in the popular Ghost House Pictures series has yet to have a release date announced, and Wilkins (who previously helmed the on-line Tales From The Grudge episodes that also turned up on the Grudge 2 DVD) doesn’t have a problem with the Brad (From Within) Keene-scripted sequel going direct to disc. “In my work, I’ve never shied away from all the different kinds of distribution,” he tells the trade, “whether that’s Internet, VOD or even mobile phones.”

Given the strong critical reception to Splinter from such publications as The New York Times and Variety, it’s no surprise that a follow-up may be in order.

Magnet picks out 'Splinter'

Magnet, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has prebought North American rights to Toby Wilkins' horror-thriller Splinter, which is nearing completion.

Splinter revolves around a young couple held hostage by an ex-convict, all of whom are menaced by a parasitic monster.

The film, which Magnet plans to release next year, marks the feature directorial debut of Wilkins, a longtime VFX artist who has worked on films by Brett Ratner, James Cameron, Bryan Singer and Jonathan Demme. He also was recently tapped to direct the third installment of the The Grudge franchise for Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures. He worked for Raimi as director of the short film series Tales of the Grudge, which preceded the release of The Grudge 2.

The deal was negotiated by Magnolia's Tom Quinn and Jason Janego, along with Micah Green and Brian Kavanaugh Jones of CAA and Jamie Carmichael of ContentFilm.
