It's time to see if your shorts and features made the cut - Shriekfest 2009, which runs October 1st-4th, 2009, has released the titles of those films that have made its 2009 Finalists list.

The fourth Old School Sinema Cleveland Charity Zombie Walk (or, OSSCCZW, if you want something easier to say), is set to take place Saturday, September 19th, in Lakewood, Ohio.

The other day we reported that the release date for Matt Pizzolo's Godkiller "illustrated film" was being pushed back a week to October 6th due to the quantity of retail orders Halo-8 had received for the DVD. We should all have such problems, right? In any event, to help fuel our anticipation, the company has debuted the box art and special features that await us on October 6th.
It's no secret that nine times out of ten video games based on movie licenses end up sucking, but man, that one percent of folks who get things right really knock it out of the park.

One of the only complaints we had with the latest DVD and Blu-ray release of Grace (review here) was that the original six-minute short film that started it all was nowhere to be found in either package (unless of course you went and got the Best Buy exclusive).

Never mind all the big budget remakes that are supposed to wow you from their opening seconds. Screw all the lame ass CGI effects that most of the time add nothing to our horror genre other than making it seem a bit more cartoonish. If you're in the market for something old school and completely badass, you need to be digging on Eben McGarr's latest feature House of the Wolf Man. We've been telling you about it for months, but now some lucky folks in LA will finally get to see it!

And that's just the half of it!
It's a well known fact by now that every Halloween a new Saw movie will haunt theatres courtesy of Lionsgate, but what sometimes gets lost in the shuffle is the goodness of the annual Saw Blood Drives, which are a lot more than just sexy nurses dressed up in ghastly ways for charity.
