The first trailer for David Ondaatje’s remake of one of Hitchcock’s earliest films, The Lodger,has found its way onto Apple’s official site, which in turn lead it into our loving arms.
Though I don’t fully understand the implications of this announcement, I know what it means to horror fans: The end of Horrorclix is nigh. The Topps Company announced today that it would immediately cease operations of Horrorclix makers WizKids, which is also responsible for the superhero-oriented game Heroclix.

Sorry it’s a day late, I hope some of you can eventually find a way to forgive me, but here are your horror DVD choices for Tuesday, November 11th, 2008!
Though I feel kinda dirty pointing it out to you guys, it’s only fair we keep up on our coverage of Twilight since the film hits theaters next Friday (get your tickets now!). During last night’s episode of “Heroes” some exclusive footage from Twilight was shown, and thanks to the wonder of this interwebs it’s already online!
Tom Shankland’s The Children has been blowing minds wherever it’s been played; we’ve got two staffers who have seen it (review is coming), and both couldn’t stop raving about it. I was hoping he’d follow up WAZ with something special, but The Children sounds like it's exceeded even those expectations.
As is usually the case, a remake of a classic horror film (in this case the one coming up from Rogue) means a special edition of the original will make its way to DVD. In the case of Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left, it’s a long overdue catch up.
This December 30th one of the more bizarre titles flirting with our genre, Mark & Jay Duplass’ Baghead (review), will finally be coming to DVD thanks to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. If you’ve not heard much about the title, I’m not surprised; I’ve been trying to figure out if it belongs on Dread since it started its festival run.
For a lucky few of you, tomorrow is a good day to be dead; that’s when Valve releases their public demo of Left 4 Dead, their new co-op zombie game which hits stores November 17th. To celebrate, Valve has release the first 15 minutes of gameplay, which you can feast upon below!
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from The Devils and Lair of the White Worm director Ken Russell, outside of his segment of Trapped Ashes (review). Seems the reason for that is he’s moved from film to stage and his latest directing gig has been for Mindgame, a play written by Anthony Horowitz.
Anchor Bay just sent out a press release announcing their acquisition of Paddy Breathnatch’s Shrooms (DVD review) follow-up, Red Mist (aka Freakdog). The Bay will be putting Red Mist on DVD come February 10th, 2009.
Just last month we got the first word from Adam Mason on the next film he’s working on, Luster, and during AFM both the first poster art, on your right, and the official synopsis were revealed.
Danny Leiner, the man who showed us that both road trip movies and Neil Patrick Harris can be funny again with Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, signed a deal during AFM to bring us another bizarre comedy that will make horror fans stand up and moan: The Corporate Zombie Killers.
Epic Films has jumped on board as international distributor for the latest from The Devil’s Chair (DVD review) director Adam Mason, Blood River, thanks to AFM. You may recall that Blood River’s been out there for a while now but this is the first time it’s been seen by distributors and all went very well.
