McFarlane Talks Spawn Reboot

I still remember leaving the theatre after watching the Spawn movie. My head was killing me. All that CGI. All those loud effects. The cartoonish looking battles. The missed opportunities. The only thing right with it was surprisingly enough John Leguizamo's portrayal of Clowny. What could a sequel or a remake hold for us spurned fans?

Hansel and Gretel - Witch Hunters?

Pig Hunt Screening and New Trailer

A new trailer for Jim Isaac's latest film Pig Hunt just came our way, and it looks as if it kicks all sorts of ass. Yes, we have a fairly negative Pig Hunt review here on the site, but from what I'm hearing lately from others, it could be way off!
