As everyone knows, I'm DC's resident awards show junkie, and while even I usually give the People's Choice Awards a pass, I couldn't help but notice their contenders in the Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show category, all of which have been the topic of much discussion around these parts.
We're always happy to receive an update from indie filmmaker Patrick Rea as to what's he's been doing, and today is no exception.

Though very little is known about it, intrepid reporter Nomad just pointed us to Broadway World, who got word that a Broadway version of Michael Jackson’s epic horror music video “Thriller” is being planned by prolific Broadway producer James Nederlander.
Though the word on the street is that, essentially, My Name is Bruce is not the be-all, end-all Bruce Campbell film we had been hoping for, that doesn’t mean it won’t go well with a six pack and a joint, does it? It does not, but you’ll be able to test that theory come February 10th when Image Entertainment releases the flick in both standard and Blu-ray formats.
One deal that seemingly slipped through the cracks at this year’s AFM was Halo 8’s acquisition of James Farr’s animated Xombie series for both theatrical and DVD release. It’s all right because they just sent out official word with all the details.
It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve heard anything about a sequel to Cloverfield, even though the money it made during its theatrical and home video run makes it a no-brainer for the studio. Director Matt Reeves recently talked with MTV’s Movie Blog about it and gave some reasons why we’ve not seen anything yet.
It’s a very small bit, and unfortunately the video is not embeddable, but if you head on over to Sci Fi Wire right now you can see a very cool behind-the-scenes featurettes for Monsters Vs. Aliens, the upcoming animated monster movie from Dreamworks.
I’m a huge fan of “Kids in the Hall” so any time I can get a chance to report on a new movie any of those five weirdoes are in on my site, I’m all over it.

Ok, so let me get this out of the way immediately as it's no secret ... the Resident Evil live action films have kind of sucked. We love Milla and all, but come on!

Even though Dish Network is no longer home to Monsters HD, it's still alive and well on the Net (and Cablevision), as evidenced by the press release we received today. This Thanksgiving Monsters HD invites you to celebrate with a zombie marathon!
Horror may currently be in a slump, but the 2008 American Film Market has shown a huge light at the end of the tunnel. This year showcased a record number of horror titles and Dread Central was on hand to catch a great deal of them. Some were good, some were bad but all showed that this genre still has plenty of lifeblood left. Many exhibitors were also kind enough to show us movie promos, while others coldly showed us the door (Lesbian Vampire Killers, I’m looking at you).
