It looks like we wont be dusting off our VCRs next month. According to Fangoria, MGM has
changed the release date for THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES. Now the film is set to hit
theatres on the fourth quarter of 2008. Considering that October is already flooded with
new horror features, we may see POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES either in November or December.
Who knows, things are always subject to change.
Fangoria got a hold of the new poster art for THE POUGHKEPSIE TAPES. They also posted
up a couple new pictures from the movie. On this article we've also attached the latest
trailer for the film.

We've received word on a new horrifying film that will be coming to the Tribeca Film
Festival on April 27th and 28th. It's called THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES, and we've posted
up our coverage for it. We also uploaded the trailer up on youtube. Throughout the 1990s,
a serial killer terrorized upstate New York. After a decade-long crime spree conducted
largely under the radar of law enforcement, the killer left behind the most disturbing
collection of evidence homicide detectives had ever seen hundreds of homemade
videotapes that chronicle the stalking, abduction, murder, and disposal of his victims.
The Poughkeepsie Tapes examines these horrific tapes at length: what they reveal about
the killer, why they were made, and how FBI profilers have used them to better
understand violent, psychopathic behavior. The Poughkeepsie Tapes combines interviews
surrounding the devastating impact of the Water Street Butcher with shocking footage
from the tapes themselves. The Poughkeepsie Tapes documents the actual experience of
encountering a deranged serial killer. Never before has an audience been exposed so
directly to terror so real. For the first time, the public will see the horrifying images that
FBI profilers have studied for years.
