It’s Round 3 for Repo! The Genetic Opera. The little film that wouldn’t die is set for another go at independent theaters across the country this coming January 13th, 2009, in anticipation of the soundtrack and DVD release on January 20th.
Andrew van den Houten’s Offspring is pretty close to the top of my list for most anticipated adaptations of 2009. The Jack Ketchum book on which it’s based is one of my favorites, and this story has been a long time coming to the big screen!
When we last reported on it, Sony’s Stage 6 was set to release David Ondaatje’s remake of The Lodger on December 31st, though we had no idea in what theatrical capacity. As of today, however, things have changed!
The name Bill Landis might not be instantly recognizable to some of us, but for fans of exploitation cinema, he was truly an icon. So it is with much sadness that we pass on the news that Bill suffered a fatal heart attack yesterday.
With the minor exception of Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers, a film making its premiere on the Sci Fi Channel is never a good sign. So I have to say I’m concerned that Eric Red’s return to horror, 100 Feet, has been resigned to that fate.
IDW announced today that April 2009 will see the first of a five-issue miniseries for American McGee’s Grimm, a comic vision of the game McGee created for Gametap.
Got a special someone on your list who just loves creepy stuff? LA-based artist David Choe has created something that may suit their needs quite well, especially if they also like extremely unique, limited artwork.
There’s not a shitload of new information in this, the first “official” word from Rob Zombie on Halloween 2, but the recent Fearnet blog posted by Spider, frontman of Powerman 5000 and brother of Mr. Zombie, does have some juicy chunks for those of you chomping at the bit for more.
The artwork and release dates for two anticipated films from Anchor Bay have finally surfaced over on Amazon; how fortuitous that you can just scroll down to the bottom and pre-order both of them through Evilshop!
It’s funny; all the reporting we did about a return to the Ghostbusters series, the news that all four of the original cast members would return for a third movie and our overwhelming excitement for it all, I don’t remember it ever being mentioned if Sigourney Weaver would have a place in the new installment.
The big day is almost here! So what do you get for the naughtiest of the naughty on your list? How about one of the coolest fucking masks you're ever gonna see?
Genre director James Gunn is ready to spread a little Christmas fear our way with a short film that kind of defies description. Be warned though -- this is not safe for work ... I think!
Some crappy news came out today for fans who have been looking forward to seeing Harry Warden reach out of the big screen to tear their hearts out in My Bloody Valentine 3D; apparently most theaters will be carrying the flick in 2D only.

So it’s Christmas ... sorry Winter ... Break for anyone who’s still pursing some form of higher education, and if I remember much about those days (which I don’t), it’s that you spend a lot of time indoors. Especially if you’re on the East Coat or in the Midwest. It’s freaking cold out there.
