You know things are getting weird when Hollywood turns to the virtually untapped world of board games to find their next high-concept script. Like today, when THR reported that Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes have signed a deal with Hasbro to bring the supernatural adventure Ouija to the big screen.
Just got the first word from Stephen Romano himself that posters from the upcoming Shock Festival book will be appearing in The Hills Run Red.
It's time to head out to your local comic shop, FYE or Spencer's because NECA's two new Predators from AVP:R (review) should be arriving very soon.
A few weeks back production on Rob (Wrong Turn) Schmidt’s latest film, Bad Meat, was halted due to lack of funds. At the time the filmmakers were assured that the money would be in place shortly and told not to worry.
Last night we got an email from Edward Douglas, one of the creative forces behind Midnight Syndicate and director of the upcoming film The Dead Matter, with an update on his directorial debut.
When it was initially announced that Herbert West would be finding his way into the Hack/Slash come the series' 15th issue, I thought it brilliant. Recently Newsarama sat down with Brian Yuzna, director of the last two films and the man who effectively owns the rights to the West character, and Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley to discuss why this crossover just make so much sense.
I have to give it to the makers of Cirque du Freak; they sure managed to get an amazing cast to work with. Since the movie, an adaptation of the books by Darren Shan, was announced, names like John C. Reilly and Salma Hayek have jumped on board.

So, what would you do to have a handsome face, like mine maybe? Would you go under a hot knife? Cut the mug off some Hollywood hunk and stitch it to your own Leatherface-style? What about making a deal with the prince of flies?
Some people out there have been lukewarm about the upcoming 3D My Bloody Valentine remake. Me? I'm ready for some gore in the third dimension! And now there's a whole new reason to get at least somewhat excited!
During my stay at my previous gig I published the following editorial. It was deemed too controversial by the powers that be and as a result was taken down. Recently I came across it again, and despite the passing of time, it's still every bit as relevant as it was back then. I've updated it a bit and decided to give it a proper home. Sit back, kids, and let's revisit some troubled waters. Enjoy!
In a world full of terror, high gas prices, corrupt political figures and war, what we really need now is some adult animation. Remember the fun times with Ralph Bakshi, when cartoons didn't have to be bright and full of bullshit to sell toys? Rob Zombie does! Yeah!!!
Now this is pretty cool. Bottled spirits, literally. According to the site each ghost is unique and caught at different haunted locations. Maybe there are real ghosts in these bottles, maybe not. Either way they make a pretty cool conversation piece.
Just got a heads-up from Closet Space (review) director Mel House about some very cool casting news for his latest feature, Walking Distance, which we’ve been doing a pretty damn good job of keeping you informed about, if I do say so myself...
