Much like this week’s release of Mirrors, which was based on the Korean film Into the Mirror, Alexandre Aja is insisting that his Piranha 3D remake will not really be a remake at all, but rather a completely original film which just happens to share the same title as Joe Dante’s original.

Everything from the special features all the way down to the transfer kicked some major leathery ass. It was good headcheese for all. But now that we've entered into the Blu-ray era, will Leatherface and the family get their due?
The more I see of Paul Anderson's remake of Death Race 2000, more depressed I get. While we're all for more blood and carnage, this version of DR has no identity of its own. Everything from the cars down to the characters just feel generic. But at least there will be blood...
Magnet Films, the genre branch of Magnolia Pictures, have officially released the theatrical series they’re calling Six Shooter Films, ”six films from the vanguard of quality worldwide genre cinema”.

**Update: Bousman just put up a blog on his MySpace page addressing this and other rumors...**
Finally, some casting has taken place for Lars Von Trier’s long-gestating Anitchrist, and it’s good enough to make it more than worth the wait. Variety reports that Willem Dafoe (pictured) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (I’m Not There) have signed on for the film.
