The Trailer from Across the Hall

New Set Image: Scream of the Banshee

Cameras are now rolling on Steven C. Miller's Scream of the Banshee for After Dark Films, and over the weekend Miller released a pretty spooky new pic via his Twitter account.

Buffy Coming Back! Well .... Sort of!

Most fans, including myself, were left feeling shortchanged and screaming for more when "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" went off the air after seven seasons. It was even worse when "Angel" got yanked, but that's a whole other can of worms. Season Eight in comic form never really did it for a huge percentage of the fanbase, but it looks like Whedon and company may have found a solution.

Halloween II DVD and Blu-ray Update

Another bad sign for the Weinsteins. Usually distribution of all of Dimension Films' theatrical properties are handled by Genius Products, the Weinsteins' home video label. Yet, today the news came that Sony will be handling the DVD and Blu-ray release of Rob Zombie's Halloween II. Very interesting, no?

Cold Spots: Leavenworth Prison

Leavenworth, Kansas - Its guest list reads like a who's-who of infamy, full of swindlers, gangsters, murderers and monsters. The gargantuan structure is at once a beautiful piece of architecture and an imposing sentinel on the land. In fact, from the outside, it looks almost like one of the many halls of government in Washington, D.C. But the people who stay here aren't guests of their own free will. They don't make laws. In fact, they broke a few. And inside, where penance is paid and cells are overcrowded, there are a few inmates who have stayed longer than most.

The Night SHE Stayed Home: Judith: A Halloween Tribute Film

Despite its low budget, a mostly no-name cast, and age, many fans out there still find John Carpenter's original masterpiece Halloween to be one of the best film's our genre has ever seen; and we completely agree. Filmmakers Josh Hasty and Kenny Caperton certainly feel the same way as they've made a prequel of sorts to that film and not Zombie's. Ever wonder what led up to Judith Myer's staying home that fateful evening? Get ready to experience one fan's rendition of that sliver of backstory.
