Finally the trailer for After Dark's final film to die for, Kill Theory, has hit the Net, and it looks like a good and gory time is waiting for us all!
We just got word that the latest homage to the glorious big boobs and blood films of yesteryear, Bitch Slap, has gotten itself a sweet little DVD release date of March 2nd from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment! Read on to find out what else to expect!
Following up on our news item last week regarding executive producer Greg H. Sims’ home-invasion thriller Behind Your Eyes, this scribe contacted Sims to get the 411 on the Southern California-shooting production. Written by Daniel Fanaberia and directed by Clint Lien, Behind Your Eyes is the first in-house feature for new production and distribution entity Vesuvio Entertainment Corporation, of which Sims is CEO (not Tri Coast as originally reported).
As if he doesn't have his hands full enough with The Crow remake, Stephen Norrington has been tapped by Legendary Pictures to write and direct The Lost Patrol, "a supernatural action thriller set against the backdrop of World War II."
News that Ken Foree is starring in a movie about the DC Sniper shootings would normally prove promising. Except DC Sniper is the latest from Ulli Lommel, the master of plotless, no-budget, factually inaccurate, pseudo-art exploitation flicks about real-life mass murderers. On the plus side, this does not look like the typical artsy-fartsy crappola we've come to expect from Lommel. On the other hand, just wait until you see the trailer. Oh, my.
We're already well into the new year, and still there's been no confirmation as to the means by which Summit Entertainment plans to unleash the final chapter in The Twilight Saga known as Breaking Dawn onto the throng of tweens and cougars who are anxiously awaiting it.

Well, 2010 is certain starting off with a bang for DVD collectors. Along with the unrated director's cut of Rob Zombie's Halloween II and Duncan Jones' stellar Moon (polar opposites if there ever were any!), we've been given the choice of two new Hindi thriller/Bollywood films, Accident on Hill Road and Bolo Raam.
It's no big secret. Lately the really good horror films out there have been coming from abroad while Hollywood sits high atop its pointless remake machine. Four clips from the new French thriller In Their Sleep (or Dans ton sommeil for you purists out there) from directors Caroline du Potet and Eric du Potet have hit online, and we've got 'em right here for you free of poorly synced dubbing.
Are you ready for three new clips today from The Butcher Brothers' latest trip into genre land? That's right, kids, their new film The Violent Kind is just days away from making its debut at Sundance 2010, so that means it's time for a little bit of enticement!
