Could this be the next splatter masterpiece to find its way out of Japan? Maybe we won’t go that far, but Samurai Zombie certainly looks like it’s got a hell of a lot going for it, not the least of which being that is was directed by Versus star and all around badass Tak Sakaguchi.
Maybe it’s just me, but the more I see from David Goyer’s upcoming horror entry The Unborn, the more cheesy it seems. Example; did you know the unborn baby who is trying to break into our world is named Jumby? What the hell is that?
Looks like someone’s taking McFarlane’s idea of taking original poster art and 3D-izing it but making it that much cooler. Don’t get me wrong, a 3D Jaws poster is pretty badass, but wouldn’t you rather have something a bit ... bigger?

Variety reports that there are two front-runners for the Oscar nod this year, and one of them is not a teen musical that most likely makes you twitch uncontrollably at this point.

We just received word from the guys over at Bad Taste that they've posted the first trailer for Platinum Dunes’ The Horsemen! The site is in Italian so the trailer likely is as well (I can’t watch it to verify where I am), but at least we’re finally seeing more movement on this!
With Christmas right around the corner, it's only fitting that we spread a little holiday fear! Adam Green's short film Fairy Tale Police is now available on Xbox Live so get to downloading and laughing!
Not to be confused with Eden Log, which is a completely different kind of film, we just got our hands on an exclusive clip from Eden Lake, which Dimension Extreme is putting on DVD on January 6th, 2009!

Gold Circle Films has tapped the writing/directing duo behind Deadgirl (review) to update the Danish thriller Murk (Mørke) according to THR. Marcel Sarmiento & Gadi Harel will both write and direct the Murk update, which sounds like it’ll be another polarizing film for the team.

Impaler is a vicious horror tale that takes what you know about Dracula and turns it on its ear. What if humanity's only savior from a horde of voracious vampires is none other than Vlad the Impaler himself?
