Motion Picture Purgatory: Gamer

It seems that Trembles decided to do what a substantial number of other horror fans did (judging by box office receipts): basically ignore Rob Zombie's Halloween II and just move on. And so, instead of piling more venom on H2, this week's Motion Picture Purgatory tackles the testosterone-fueled Gamer.

Adam Green and Joe Lynch's Road to Frightfest: American Douchebags in London

Last year directors Adam Green and Joe Lynch shot a series of short films detailing the duo's hilarious Road to Frightfest that ended in their eventual deaths. Well, despite their demise, every good film deserves a sequel so allow me to direct you to American Douchebags in London.

New Previews for The CW's Vampire Diaries and Supernatural

Those of you who are of a certain age no doubt remember the phrase "Must See TV" and its application to NBC's Thursday night lineup of shows during the 1990's.

Rambo to Start Hunting Horrors?

We live in strange times. Sylvester Stallone wants to do another Rambo sequel. No surprise there. Now he's talking about making it PG-13, which is nearly impossible to fathom, especially after the all-out bloodbath that was last year's Rambo. But even more perplexing is that it looks to be heading into the direction of sci-fi action horror with John Rambo tracking a genetically engineered monster run amok. We're a long way removed from First Blood now.

Boggy Creek Remake is NOT a Remake

We've been keeping tabs on the recently announced Legend of Boggy Creek remake. As it turns out, this remake isn't really a remake after all. Boggy Creek will have a similar theme as the original but is not really a remake, will not be done in the docudrama style, and has a monster that owes more to a man-creature of Caddo Indian mythology than the Fouke Monster portrayed in the original.

It's been a good long while since there was anything to report on concerning Warner Bros.' plans to adapt the anime sensation Akira into a big budget live action extravaganza. Over a year, in fact. Finally a bit of news has trickled out.
