Here’s the latest scoop from the desk of Brian Ronalds at the offices of Netherbeast Incorporated.
So here it is already Labor Day Weekend, 2008. Man, it seems like just a few days ago I was peeling July off the calendar as we entered the month of August. But no, it really is time for the August 23-29, 2008, Weekly Wrap-Up.
I don’t know what it is about discussing a Paul W.S. Anderson movie, but for some reason it made us all really ... gay. The homosexual under and overtones in this Dinner for Fiends made us all take a long, hard look at our own sexuality. We found it disturbing.

One good thing about George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead being in the public domain is that it allows all sorts of creative re-interpretations to be made of it.

We received the final poster art for David Hackl's Saw V, and it boasts that we'll "never believe how it ends." But ... isn't there already a sixth Saw film in the works? Do they mean how this trap ends or how this chapter ends? The fourth sequel in the Saw franchise follows the path of destruction the new Jigsaw creates as he attempts to keep his identity a secret. Torture, flashbacks, and hopefully more pig masks await us in theatres on October 24th.
I’ll admit I hadn't heard of the Spanish film King of the Hill (El Rey de la Montana) until the trailer for it popped onto Twitch Film seemingly from nowhere, but from the sounds of it this is one to keep our eyes on.

Ashley Greene, the smokin’ hot star of this fall’s Twilight, has signed on for the indie thriller Summer according to this morning’s THR. She'll play a girl looking for her long-lost father who runs into a family of serial killers.
Talk about movies that didn’t cry out for a sequel; Variety reports this morning that Rogue Pictures has pulled the trigger on The Strangers 2, with original helmer Bryan Bertino back to pen the script. No word on if he’ll direct again or not.
