All right, just under a month to go before Fear Fest 2 invades your consciousness, and you know you’re going to be hearing about it non-stop between now and its official kick-off on Friday, March 7th! Lots o’ updates to get through this morning, so here goes:
A small selection of digital disc delights coming your way this Tuesday, February 12th...
As the Berlin Film Festival goes down, deals are happening left and right for both old and new films.
While the flick is going to be more of a hard sell here in the states, Warner Music has jumped on Chemical Wedding, the directorial debut of Monty Python editor Julian Doyle which was scripted by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson, with plans to give it a major theatrical push in the UK according to Variety.
Two-time Oscar nominee Roy Scheider has passed away at the age of seventy-five at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas.
I've been waiting and waiting for the DVD art to be revealed for The Mist (review), which hits DVD on March 25th (pre-order it here), and this is all I get for my troubles: a slightly tweaked version of the theatrical poster.
Paddy Breathnach isn’t waiting around to see how well his first film, Shrooms, does when it's released here in the States on DVD this March 25th; Variety is reporting that he’s already moved on to his next project, a supernatural thriller called Red Mist.
All right, just what the horror world needs more of: spoofs. As if the Scary Movie franchise isn’t annoying enough on its own, now one of the series’ producers, Bo Zenga (pictured), is planning on spoofing monster movies, too, in Stan Helsing, according to Variety.
Ellen Page is sure making a name for herself in our genre. Starting off with Hard Candy, then An American Crime and now Drag Me to Hell, the next horror film from Spider-Man director Sam Raimi, she's showed a real interest in genre roles.
Whoa, now that’s what I call an eye-catching poster. Matador Pictures put up the first teaser images for Books of Blood, the next Clive Barker story headed for the big screen.

The story follows a paranormal investigator who starts an affair with one of her cases, a man who appears to be channeling messages from the dead.
There's so much to do and see in two of the biggest and brightest cities in the world, but why not take a break from the hustle, bustle, and stench of dried wino urine long enough to catch one hell of a movie? The feature I refer to is the film version of Jack Ketchum's The Lost (review here).

Paranormal-Archive has reported that they have footage that might conclusively prove the existence of other-worldly entities. Check out the footage below!
Holy crap, remember Diamond Dead? This was supposed to be Romero’s return to zombie heaven before Universal swooped in and confused matters with Land of the Dead. Romero worked on it for years but if memory serves had to choose between going forward with Land or Diamond and (unfortunately, some say) chose the former.
