I think this is probably the best cast, pay scale-wise, to ever be assembled for a movie that is, at its heart, about cannibals.
Ah, animal instincts. Usually when they take over, the shit ends up hitting the fan. That's exactly the case in the first adaptation of a Skipp and Spector novel, Animals.
Hellboy has existed as an indie comics staple for years now, converting even the most jaded “men in tights” comic collector. Mike Mignola’s gritty style celebrates times of noir shadowed by splash pages seemingly torn right from the Necronomicon itself. Suffice to say, the man is a unique talent.
"The entire auditorium was freaked out of their minds...people were actually physically shaking...". So said Andrew Kasch after catching a screening of Paranormal Activity (review) at this past Screamfest. He wasn't kidding.
It has been quite a while since we last heard about the Steven Goldmann's upcoming adaptation of the Trailer Park of Terror comics (“Trailer Park Teaser” – August 2007). We knew the film didn't hit any bumps, but news of the film's production wasn't rolling in.
First Doug Bradley was cast in John Harrison’s upcoming adaptation of Books of Blood, which was cool enough for fans of the once and future Pinhead. But who would’ve expected another Cenobite would be cast?
This one's for our UK readers; while yes, it sucks you’re not getting Cloverfield this Friday like we Yankees are (you only have to wait until February 1st, though), you are getting a movie a lot of U.S. horror fans are looking forward to a lot sooner than we are: All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.

You thought we were done adding guests, didn’t you? You thought, just because we’re less than two months from the 2nd annual Fear Fest, there was just no more room for talent, didn’t you?
Over the weekend I got the chance to talk to A.J. Bowen (pictured), one of the stars of The Signal (review), which is out in theaters on February 22nd, 2008 (full theater listing is here).
An interesting lineup comes our way this Tuesday, January 15th, 2008. Is any of it worth picking up? Read on to find out!
I never once thought the theatrical future of Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans was in question, but I guess it was by some parties. If you're among those parties, allow me to calm your troubled minds; the prequel will, indeed, be in theaters. I know this because Lakeshore Entertainment pres Tom Rosenberg told me.
It’s being reported this morning via Upcoming Film Scores that a slew of new sci-fi/horror movies are finally settling on composers, and since this is the first time I’ve heard mention of the upcoming Tale of Two Sisters remake (pictured) in quite a while, it’s worth a mention as it’s a very good sign that the film is nearly done. How good it will be still remains to be seen.
Ron Perlman has certainly embraced his role as the once and future Hellboy, lending his vocal talents to two animated films about Big Red as well as the upcoming video game Hellboy: The Science of Evil, which has been in development for seemingly ever now.
In case you hadn't been aware, the Michell Lichtenstein coming-of-age horror film Teeth (review) opens in theaters this Friday, right up against a little monster movie you might have heard of called Cloverfield. The Teeth release is much smaller, so I’m sure it’ll find its audience. Besides, it’s about a girl with teeth in her vagina; what’s not to love?
