So we got to put up our Friday the 13th set visit yesterday and, personally, I thought it was pretty cool. Leave it to MTV to come along and show us up not only with some exclusive new pics from the film, though granted only two and nothing terribly exciting, but also a video report from the set!
All right, so maybe I’m a little behind in pointing this out to you guys, but hopefully I’ll be forgiven since October is a notoriously crazy month for us, as you know.

This past April I first reported on a horror movie in the works called Crawler, a sort-of updating of the notorious 1970's TV movie Killdozer. Info was scarce at the time, but now we've got new info on the plot, awesome new promotional artwork, and a new teaser trailer. Not every rampaging bulldozer movie you see where the dozer has tentacles.
This has really been the week for news on Bump, the Fangoria Graphix comic that will be headed to feature film land soon courtesy of The Rage director Robert Kurtzman.
