We’ve received word about what could be an interesting take on the found footage genre, Night Of The Dolls. The film, “is the story about five friends who head out on a weekend road trip from their home state of Texas to Indiana. The four girls play in a band called the Lolita Dolls. Their best friend Lenny accompanies them on the trip and he also drives the Van. The main purpose of the trip is to play a live show at the coveted HorrorFest in Indiana that Saturday night. But Kari, the lead vocalist, talks the band into making a stop at the infamous Brookhurst Sanitarium. She is obsessed with the murders of four young women that worked there twenty ago by a sick and twisted man that also worked there named Dr. Graves. When trouble with the Van strands them at the Sanitarium, the Band and Lenny reluctantly stay the night. Things go from bad to worse as they realize that the events that happened twenty years ago are far from over…”
Night Of The Dolls is written and directed by Tom Komisar and is produced by A HM&M Films. It stars Pretty Poison, Ellie Church, Angela Denton, Cassie ”Boom” Guthrie, Eric Reaume, D. Lawson and Chuck Smith. The film also features a cameo by Ari Lehman (Friday The 13th).

When it was announced that co-creator/writer Robert Kirkman and artist Greg Capullo, would be leaving “HAUNT”, there was a lot of speculation as to who would come on board to fill their creative shoes. “HAUNT” is one of Image Comics best selling monthly titles and part of the series’ appeal had been the creative powerhouse of two of comic’s biggest names.
For co-creator Todd McFarlane, who publishes “HAUNT” under his Image imprint, it would have been an easy to replace Kirkman and Capullo with a carbon copy creative team and have the book continue to coast in the current direction. Not afraid to rock the boat and shake things up, McFarlane tapped writer Joe Casey (Godland, Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker) and artist Nathan Fox (Dark Reign: Zodiac, DMZ, Blue Estate) to give “HAUNT” a complete creative facelift starting with issue #19.
Bloody-Disgusting.com caught up with writer Joe Casey to discuss the new creative direction of Haunt and how he plans to give the character more of a horror vibe by mixing together buckets of bloody violence and artwork that can “scare the shit outta people”.
Image Comics has also given Bloody-Disgusting readers an exclusive 6-page preview of Haunt #19 after the jump.
The re-launch of the DC Universe made headlines everywhere. One of the most surprising and talked about elements of the DC New 52 was the revival of older titles with a darker edge, which included Animal Man, Resurrection Man and the upcoming I Vampire. The choice to make these series a part of the re-launch may have appeared odd at first glance, but now that the books are finally in the greedy little hands of fans, the dark side of the new DC Comics has given fans some of the best new titles the publisher has launched in years.
