In the future vampires and creatures less than vampires fight one another for the honor of feasting on the last remaining pureblooded humans. You see, anything that can possibly change our blood makes it instantly undrinkable for a vampire. At least that’s the future according to Jay Woelfel’s Live Evil.
More sequel news has come down via AFM, this time from STYD, confirming that a sequel to 30 Days of Night is in the works. I really hope no one is surprised by that. Word is that Steve Niles will be writing the screenplay with Ben Ketai.
Kasch just called in from AFM with some good news for those of you who dug Brett Sullivan’s Ginger Snaps 2 follow-up, The Chair (DVD review); Sullivan and writing parner Michael Capellupo are currently writing a sequel, which is being called The Chair 2: Ressurrection of Crowe.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Or at least have lost their footing quite a bit and look on the verge of hitting the ground face-first.

Chatroom.
The American Film Market kicks into full gear today, and as usual we can expect all manner of early production art to show up for movies that may not be done or, in some cases, even started filming yet. Bill Malone’s Parasomnia is not one of those; it's been done for a while now and it's being shopped around AFM with the new art you see to your right.
Looks like the film that’s always been referred to as The Untitled Gehenna Project, literally from the day it was announced, may have finally settled on a title.

The guys at Gentle Giant have proven yet again why the have the best busts in the business. Wait, that didn’t mean what it sounded like; what I meant was that they make the best busts in the business. Just take a look at the new Freddy Krueger bust, which we’re just teasing you with below.
It seems odd; we’ve been talking about the film version of Dolan’s Cadillac, the adaptation of the Stephen King short story, for so long that now that it’s actually filming it almost doesn’t seem real. Maybe it’s because a relatively unknown helmer is directing it? Or maybe because Sly Stalone isn’t a part of it anymore?
