It's the first full day of spring, a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. It's also a time of another "re" word -- remake -- but I'm going to temporarily put that trend on hold (other than reminding you all to read Adam Gierasch's blog Creepy Mofos ... Creepy Movies, the first subject of which happens to be those pesky re-dos).

With the ten-year anniversary of The Blair Witch Project upon us, I still cannot believe we haven't gotten a decent anniversary DVD or Blu-ray out of Lionsgate. Talk about a missed opportunity, man!
