Sweeney Goes Steel, Too

After reporting just the other day about FYE/Suncoast getting an exclusive edition of Cloverfield encased in steel (“Cloverfield’s Crushed DVD” – March 2008), it’s not too surprising that it won’t be the only flick getting the treatment in the coming weeks.

Two Sisters Becomes Uninvited

In a Variety story this morning about a new comedy script being optioned called Underage, it was officially announced that the upcoming remake of the Korean smash A Tale of Two Sisters is now being called The Uninvited.

Trick 'r Treat Helmer Calls All Robots

Though we’ve yet to see his debut film, Trick ‘r Treat thanks to some very odd decisions form Warner Bros., director Michael Dougherty is prepping his next movie, an animated adventure called Calling All Robots, and damnit I’m excited for it.

Bud Bundy, Serial Killer?

Sometimes you read about an actor being cast in a role and you wonder what the hell the filmmakers were thinking. For example, when I read there was a new movie about the infamous Boston Strangler starring David Faustino, best known as Bud Bundy on "Married With Children", I immediately thought we were all being punk'd. Nope, it's for real.

Drag Me to Hell Cast Rounds Out

More names have been added to Sam Raimi’s return to horror, the possession film Drag Me to Hell, according to The Hollywood Reporter this morning. Shooting begins on Monday in LA.

Full Circle Preps 3-D Mortician

This is just obnoxious; this morning Variety got word that Aria Films and First Circle Films are teaming with Axis 3D to produce a 3-D movie called The Mortician. Sounds intriguing based on the title alone, no?

Sheri Moon In, T-Rex Out?

OK, I think we can all safely say that Rob Zombie's upcoming film Tyrannosaurus Rex is not the code name for The Nail movie, but it looks like the title may not be the final one at all. STYD has heard from those on the inside that Tyrannosaurus Rex may just be a temp title. Alright, whatever ... but what is the damn thing about?

The Ruins' Virus Spreads

In just over a week, the big screen adaptation of Scott B. Smith's The Ruins will hit theatres nationwide. What better way to get everyone in the mood than to spread some kick ass viral marketing?

Sink into Teeth's DVD

For those of us who missed the theatrical run of Teeth (review) early this year, we can rest easy that Dimension Extreme will be putting it out on DVD by May 1st.

Foree's Just a Pussycat

Yet another voice has joined the cast of The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, and man am I getting Halloween flashbacks in a big way…

Exclusive Clip From Black House!

Today we got a cool treat for ya; Genius Entertainment sent us over an exclusive clip from Terra Shin’s Black House, which they’re releasing on DVD this April 22nd.

Quick Resident Evil 5 Footage

The issue of Japan's oldest gaming magazine Famitsu that has just hit stands comes with a bonus DVD with a few short interviews about Resident Evil 5. No translation yet for what the Capcom developers are saying, but that's no reason not to share the video with you, as it contains a few glimpses of someone actually playing the game, a few close up looks at the main character and a few other models from the game.

Dunes & Paramount Team for Butcherhouse

While it’s good to have some news that Platinum Dunes are finally looking at working on some original stuff as opposed to remake after remake, it’s too bad the premise of The Butcherhouse Chronicles doesn’t sound like anything that original...

A Third Descent Planned?

While I’m not exactly looking forward to The Descent 2 (I refuse to use their weird lettering) without Neil Marshall on board, when he discussed the sequel at Fear Fest he seemed pretty confident that editor-turned-director Jon Harris would do a good job with it. So where does that leave us for The Descent 3?

New Day Remake Art Found

Even though Steve Miner’s remake of Day of the Dead (review) is getting the direct-to-DVD treatment come April 8th, IMP Awards happened upon two new posters for it. The first gives it that Dawn of the Dead remake feel, while the second is reminiscent of both Shaun and Diary of the Dead.
