News and Events
Next month is a milestone for Rue Morgue: our first feature film, THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF ROSALIND LEIGH, hits DVD July 30. It’s been a remarkable journey, and we hope you’ll join us behind the scenes for writer/director/RM president Rodrigo Gudiño’s first-hand account of how – and why – he made it. And since travelers beyond the pale never come back alone, we’ve invited a few other restless spirits to haunt the pages of our July issue: actress Claire Bloom looks back on 50 years of THE HAUNTING, James Wan and Patrick Wilson raise the dead with THE CONJURING, and renowned morbid adventurer Paul Koudounaris takes you on a guided tour of the burial caves of Central Luzon. ON STANDS JULY 1! Also available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, PC and Mac for only $4.99 an issue.

Rue Morgue and Raven Banner Entertainment are giving away four pairs of tickets to the June 19th Sinister Cinema screening of Ryûhei Kitamura’s No One Lives. Kitamura is the director of Versus and Midnight Meat Train, so you should know what to expect from his latest flick: over-the-top violence and truly insane gore. The film screened as part of TIFF’s Midnight Madness program last year, and believe me when I tell you it did not disappoint on either count.
No One Lives is playing one night only in selected Cineplex Theatres in the following cities…
We all know zombie-killin’ is a family affair, and having The Walking Dead‘s Daryl Dixon (series favourite Norman Reedus) at the Festival of Fear without his big brother just seemed wrong. So we’re happy to announce that Michael Rooker has joined this year’s lineup! Besides his role as Merle Dixon on TWD, Michael has starred in an impressive lineup of genre flicks, including Slither* and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Michael is a character, and he never fails to entertain. It’s a pleasure to have him on board, and you can bet it’ll be a blast having both of the Dixon boys hanging around the Metro Toronto Convention Convention Centre August 22-25. We hope you’ll be there too! (For news and updates, be sure to like the Festival of Fear on Facebook.)
*Michael’s Slither co-star Nathan Fillion will also be a guest at this year’s Festival! Coincidence? Yes, actually, but a damn fine one, don’t you think?
