The June 2008 backlot fire at Universal Studios was tragic on several levels but none more so than the loss of the great King Kong ride that was a staple of the theme park. Gone for good was the giant animatronic monkey and his banana-scented breath. It left quite a void. Thankfully said void is about to be filled.
Morgan J. Freeman's (emphasis on the J) psychological horror flick Homecoming had a very limited theatrical run over the summer, and if you missed it, no worries! It's on its way home to DVD!
I love the down and dirty 70s flicks where someone, anyone, was forced into a desperate fight for his or her life. No matter how many times the story is spun, I find myself looking forward to each new incarnation with renewed interest, and Stripped is absolutely no different.
Do I smell a resurgence of Italian horror on the horizon? I certainly hope so because it's been far too long since the Italians have been busy in the horror genre. First time filmmaker Paolo Fazzini is looking to put the boot back on the map with this one, folks. Fingers crossed!

There's a battle occurring for distribution rights to Vincenzo Natali's Splice at this year's Sundance film fest, but instead of acquisitions bidding in ever-escalating sums, the producers are being offered service contracts, which seems to be the trend in indie film distribution nowadays.
Skyline, the next feature to be directed by brothers Colin and Greg Strause, has added another new cast member: Crystal Reed, who will also be seen in MTV's upcoming "Teen Wolf" reboot.
One more cast member has been added to Clint Eastwood's supernatural thriller Hereafter, and it's not someone you hear connected to our genre very often. Jay Mohr has signed on to play Matt Damon's brother, Billy.
The CW is pulling out all the stops this week to promote "Unpleasantville", the 12th chapter of Season One of The Vampire Diaries, including enlisting Executive Producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec to provide a special preview video revealing some details about the episode.

If there's one thing that continuously tempts me to pack my bags and relocate to the West Coast, it's the New Beverly Cinema and their endless revival of classic horror films. I suppose not shoveling six inches of snow every other goddamn day would be a plus as well, but really, it's all about slasher movies.
Back in September Summit Entertainment snapped up the rights to a documentary about the real-life Forks, Washington, the teeny rain-soaked logging town that Stephanie Meyer used as the setting for her uber popular tweener series.
