It annoys the shit out of me when a film is announced in the trades but nothing’s said about what it actually will be about. Take the story on The Colony in this morning’s Variety; a long list of genre names is attached to it, but all we know is that it’s an eco-horror tale.
Last year Blood & Chocolate taught us that no matter how good your source material is, any filmmaker can turn it into a mind numbing laugh-a-thon suited only for people who believe all of Europe is populated by well dressed Goths and powered by Absinthe.
AITH picked up the newest trailer for Quarantine and it raised some new questions. We know that everything is shot from a news cameraman's equipment, but the entire film looks pretty steady and in HD. Maybe all the complaints via Cloverfield-sickness made director John Dowdle opt for a less shaky film?
Director/VFX Supervisor Gary Jones (Mosquito, Spiders) dropped me an email about Ghouls, his new film premiering on the Sci-Fi Channel this weekend. Sci-Fi must really be high on the film since I've seen ads hyping it as not just an original movie premiering, but as an "event".
Zombies have become the backbone of the indie filmmaking scene; I've said that countless times in the past. Throw a little grey paint on one of your buddies, and you're ready to make something that'll end up at my front door to torture me. But there are filmmakers out there who know how to properly use the undead.
Victor Salva checked in with the Fango fiends with new info on Jeepers Creepers III: Cathedral, dropping the new subtitle as one of many updates.
MGM Home Entertainment has set a September 23rd, 2008 release date for the DVD of medical thriller Pathology (review), and I have to say it’s about damn time. They never game it a decent theatrical release to begin with so very few of us have had a chance to see it yet.

Let's say vampires were an integrated part of society; it'd be socially unacceptable for them to just go around sucking regular folks dry. The good thing about the Japanese is that they'd quickly find a way to not only make a buck off the potential plight but also provide a cool and refreshing way for the suckheads to quench their thirst.
Trapped in a building. A sadistic madman with revenge on his mind has filled this building with sick and twisted traps to make sure no one gets out alive. Steel Trap is out on DVD from Dimension Extreme on July 15th (pre-order it!), and to get you in the mood, we’ve got an exclusive clip for you to feast your ocular nerves on below. Enjoy!
The team who brought you original series like “Monster Garage” and “Ice Road Truckers” have moved into the realm of zombies and motorcycles with a new Devil’s Due comic series called Chopper Zombies, coming later this month.

Things are looking good for Bryan Bertino. The writer/director of The Strangers (review) has just signed a deal with Rogue Pictures, Focus Features' genre arm, to bring them two more thrillers in the coming years according to Variety. A Strangers sequel is not part of the deal.
