Fox 2000 Readying The Passage for Ridley Scott

Normally the name Ridley Scott mentioned in the same sentence as the words "new vampire film" would have us giddy like a schoolgirl, but we're still busy celebrating the man's return to the Alien franchise! Yet, there is indeed life after Xenomorphs, and Fox 2000 is busy developing a project that would reunite the director with screenwriter John Logan, who worked with him on Gladiator.

Pet Sematary Director Developing a Case of Hydrophobia

Director Mary Lambert is leaving the Pet Sematary behind in lieu of some more oceanographic terrors. Seems she has developed a serious case of Hydrophobia, the title of a new chiller about a killer mermaid that can only be stopped by a man afraid of water. Think of it as the anti-Splash.

First Details: The Reef Shows its Teeth

Sharks are probably one of the scariest creatures on the planet. There's just no reasoning with them. You're not a person in their cold black eyes. You, just like everything else in their way, are simply lunch. Hell, depending on your size, maybe even just a snack! It's that very justified fear of these creatures that the filmmakers behind The Reef hope to tap into.

Tooling Around with the New Saw VI Poster

Yet another new one sheet for Kevin Greutert's first entry into Lionsgate's favorite Halloween franchise, Saw VI, has debuted today, showcasing a few of Jigsaw's favorite tools of the trade.

MEGA Joss Whedon Update

Joss Whedon is a busy man - impressive to me since I'd written him off as a one trick pony after the Buffy comic all but ended my enthusiasm for the series.

No Right Turn Secures a DVD Release

Twilight: Bella's Birthday Bash a Rousing Success!

When you live in small towns like Forks and LaPush, Washington, having an influx of 1,200 to 1,500 people for a weekend event is sure to help the local economy. And that's exactly what transpired during the celebration known as Bella's Birthday and Stephenie Meyer Day, which ran this past September 12th and 13th, 2009.

Another Dracula Sequel in the Works: Graphic Novel Harker

Now this is interesting news. Not only do Dracula fans have the official sequel in novel form, Dracula: The Un-Dead (which we first told you about here), to look forward to this October, there's also a totally separate, but still Stoker family-sanctioned, graphic novel on its way.

Transylmania One-Sheet Tastes Like ...

The latest vampyric horror-comedy on the block, Transylmania, just got itself a new one-sheet that should appeal to all the ladies who love their brooding lovers long in the tooth as well as fans of pork and chicken.

Motion Picture Purgatory: Sorority Row

Oh, Sorority Row, how you let us down. Most of us went in hoping/expecting it would live up to its R rating with boobs, blood, and a big finale. Instead, we got (as Nomad wrote in his Sorority Row review) "a butt-numbing experience, watching the ladies be picked off in the lamest ways possible (save one shining moment that is too little, too late)." Now it's Trembles' turn to weigh in.
