More details and some early artwork for Steven Spielberg's latest dino-centric Fox TV show, "Terra Nova", have come in, and things appear to be shaping up quite nicely.

Manborg Teaser Promises Lo-Fi FX Metal and Monster Mayhem

Can't say I'm all that familiar with low budget Winnipeg special effects guy and short filmmaker Steven Kostanski. I think I'm going to have to correct that oversight after watching the teaser for his first full-length feature film Manborg. You want robots? Done. You want vampires? Done. You want demons? Done. You want hoverbikes? Done. You want gun battles and kung fu ass-kicking? Done and done.

If you're a fan of Larry Blamire's The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, then August 17th is a date you might want to mark on your calendar. On that day Shout! Factory unspools a double dose of Larry Blamire low-budget comic homages to b-movies of bygone days as both the sci-fi sequel The Lost Skeleton Returns Again and Dark and Stormy Night, Blamire's ode to 1930's old dark house flicks, make their way to DVD.

Short Film Seance Serves Up Scares! Watch it Now!

Extended HD Promo for ABC's The Gates

ABC has released a second, slightly longer promo for its upcoming supernatural crime drama "The Gates", which debuts on June 20th. Just by virtue of the fact that Rhona Mitra's in it, I'm willing to give it a shot; here's hoping it fares better than "Happy Town" did!

Human Sacrifice! Dogs and Cats Living Together! Fulci Pimping Windows 7! Mass Hysteria!

Spirit Camp Stalks the Dances with Films Festival

At the risk of sounding like an old codger, they just don't make slasher movies like they used to. For whatever reason, most modern filmmakers don't seem to understand what made the slashers of the early 80s work so well, and the upcoming Spirit Camp appears to be no exception. Whenever I see words like "throwback" kicking around the plot description, I'm extra skeptical as it's typically another way of saying "we made a really forced and silly comedy". Will this one prove me wrong?

The Ford Fiesta! Ideal for Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse?

Let's face it, man. The zombie apocalypse -- does it really seem that far off? Mark my words, it is going to start as a result of all this friggin' hand sanitizer usage. We are all for staying germ free, but dudes, we're killing off germs that we're supposed to build up a natural immunity to. All that we're doing is sketching out the blueprint for super germs to come and wipe us off the map via the living dead!
