Charisma Enters House of Bones

I've never been much of a fan of all those ghost hunting shows but if more ghost hunters looked like Charisma Carpenter I might start tuning in.

First Poster for Maidenhead!

As you may have noticed, I got a chance to check out the new film starring The Signal’s Lewis, A.J. Bowen and From Dusk Till Dawn sheriff Michael Parks, Maidenhead.

Keep it here for more on Maidenhead soon!

Unborn Prequel, International Poster

There are ways to market a horror film that can make it look like something truly horrifying, even if the actual product is not. There are also ways to market a horror film that make it look ridiculous, which in the case of David Goyer’s The Unborn, we’ve heard is sadly a fact.
