I have a hard time mustering up anything besides disdain for this project, but the long-threatened Fright Night remake is on the table and could shoot sometime in 2010. Producer Mike De Luca, the guy seemingly attached to every other major genre release this year, recently talked about remaking one of the greatest vampire flicks of all time.
It could be me, but it seems like we've been talking about Priest for a very long time. It recently wrapped production and now its producer, Mike De Luca, is talking about when we might expect to see it.

Frederick, Maryland - It comes in the early hours of the morning, its arrival heralded by heavy footsteps on stairs. Who he is, many have guessed, but they do not know for sure, nor do they know his intentions. But what is certain, from witnesses to victims, is that he is very real ... and very frightening. Whether he means to hurt anyone is unknown, but he appears just the same, prodding with long bony fingers anyone who has the audacity to stand in his home. Although he is dead, he still lingers, many believe, out of spite.
If you don't live in one of the towns where After Dark's Horrorfest 4 is playing, then you may be wondering how long you'll have to wait before you can see this year's batch of Eight Films to Die For. Apparently not too long, as the DVD box set appears to be scheduled for a March 23rd release.

As we told you last week, Trembles is enjoying a much deserved break so he sent over another oldie but goodie for this week's MPP: none other than Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1960 film Psycho!
For me, one of the best horror films of the 90s is The Night Flier. The Stephen King adaptation is a terrifically eerie little horror film boasting some fantastic atmosphere and performances, and I've always felt its success is largely due to Mark Pavia's skilled direction. For a while it looked like Pavia was never going to deliver a sophomore effort, but we're happy to announce that day is finally here!
