I really hate it when actors who are starring in horror films make it very clear from the get-go that they don’t like horror films. Is it a personal thing? Do I feel attacked and defensive because of their wussiness? Is that even a word?
I gotta tell you all, it sure feels good to help build the hype on a movie for months and have said hype actually pay off by being a good flick. I refer, of course, to Cloverfield (review).
Another big name has joined the cast of the upcoming adaptation of the YA book series Cirque du Freak, adding to a list that includes Salma Hayek and John C. Reilly. This time out it’s Batman Begins/Last Samurai star Ken Watanabe according to Variety.
So it’s not a big amount of news, but Darren Lynn Bousman just posted on his MySpace blog that the Saw V production offices have officially opened ... a mere two blocks away from where he’s working on Repo! The Genetic Opra.
I am not sure exactly how I missed out on Stefano Bessoni’s Imago Mortis. The concept art we found last year looked pretty badass, but we heard nothing about the film itself for about seven months ("Richard Stanley's Imago Mortis Rolls" – June 2007).
There must be a bug in Hollywood to see and instantly remake any Spanish horror films for us stupid Americans. Cause you know how we hate subtitles.

So far the opinions on Shrooms, the new horror film coming our way from Ireland via Magnet Releasing, has been pretty mixed. I’ve heard everything from venomous, bitter hatred to high praise. When a film gets that kind of varied reaction, you know you have to check it out.
Sundance kicked into gear as of yesterday in Park City, UT, and all those LA people now have to deal with what we East Coasters face as a fact of life: snow. All I can say to that is HA!
Now in its 3rd season, "The Ghost Whisperer" series has done quite well for itself bringing out the dead on Friday nights on CBS.
The writers may still be on strike, but other projects that were put into motion before the movement can still be made. That's good news for us John Carpenter fans since we've been waiting several months to hear more about his horror flick L.A. Gothic (“Carpenter Goes Gothic?” – July 2007).
