Sony’s Stage 6, their low budget horror arm, has got some serious casting for the upcoming remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lodger, which is one of those few remakes no one seems to get too angry about. Is it because they’re saying it’s actually a re-adaptation of the book by Marie Belloc Lowndes that inspired Hitchcock rather than a straight remake? Cause they’re saying the same thing about The Birds too, you know...
Just a few days back it was reported that a new Underworld movie was getting ready to roll in New Zealand ("Kiwis in the Underworld" – October 2007), but that was literally all the information we had on it.
Remakes, remakes, remakes ... they never end it seems. Have ideas run so dry in the movie business that anything and everything is worthy fodder for the retooling machine? Good thing we horror fans have Alex Aja on our side.

Take a trip with me, will you? Way, way back in the day, going on 10 years now, I had the idea for a little slice of eCommerce called Evilshop. The intention was to buy and sell products through the shop the same way places like Amazon and Deep Discount DVD do. Problem was, I needed stock and had zero experience acquiring any.
Can’t wait for Saw IV this weekend to see how the writers of Feast tackle the incredibly tangled mythology behind Jigsaw? I have to admit, neither can I, but if you want to talk upcoming projects from writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton that I’m really anticipating, the Feast sequels are very close to the top of the list.
** Editor's Note: Pics were removed by request of the filmmakers** While Toby Wilkins preps to get behind the camera to direct the incredibly unwelcome sequel, The Grudge 3, the folks over at Upcoming Horror Movies managed to find out more about his feature debut, Splinter, which we’ve not heard of in months ("Wilkins Gets a Splinter" – May 2007).
So as you can see, the next issue of Rue Morgue is getting all misty. As well it should, since The Mist is one of the most anticipated horror films in recent memory; for once I don’t mind the mag putting the film at the front of most fan’s mind on the cover. Not that they do it very often, mind you.
Now, kids, this is why you should never take up the life of a graphitti artist. Too much running around, too many chances to get caught, and of course there’s the ever-present danger of half human creatures living in the subways below whatever city you do your work in.

Last year I had a blast covering Spooky Empire's Screamfest, but I was only able to make it out there for one day. This year, we didn't make the same mistake. The beautiful Robyn and myself made sure we had full accomodations at the resort Screamfest was taking place this year in Orlando, Florida. Coolers were filled with water, ice, beer, booze and prop bananas (more on that later). We headed out and prayed for the best.
