The hipsters over at Entertainment Weekly have gotten their virtual hands on the first pics from Christian Alvart’s Pandorum, his sci-fi epic that stars Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster as a pair of crew members who awaken on a spaceship with no knowledge of who they are or why they’re there.

At the recent Scream Awards, which went down last night in Hollywood, word came down to STYD that Ron Perlman is jumping on board Season of the Witch, the period horror piece from Gone in 60 Seconds helmer Dominic Sena.

There have been many good things to come out of the 2008 Scream Awards (expect a list of winners soon), and an interesting little tidbit has crept its way into our ever listening ears. Saw sequel and Repo-man Darren Lynn Bousman let it fly tonight that he will be making another horror movie with Twisted Pictures that will star Repo alumna Alexa Vega.

The Weekly Wrap-Up: October 11-17, 2008

Thanks to the great people who put on Rock and Shock each year in beautiful downtown Worcester, Mass., I had last week off from Wrap-Up duties; but now, despite this nasty cold I brought home with me, it's back to work.

Snyder's Army of the Dead Still Alive!

Well, at least we can end the week on the good news that Zack Snyder’s long-awaited zombie epic, Army of the Dead, has still got a pulse. As it were.

Martyrs Director on Hellraiser Redux?

The Weinsteins can’t seem to make up their mind as to who should be at the helm of their ill-conceived Hellraiser remake, having cycled through both the team who made Feast and the team who made Inside, but at least they seem to have settled on using a French director.

First Look at Tony Todd in Beg!

Earlier this week the local indie mavens making Beg, which to date had the likes of Tony Moran and Tiffany Shepis to boast in its cast, got the chance to add Tony Todd to their list of horror stars, and we’ve got the photographic evidence to prove it!

No Salvation for The Last Battleground

It's not unusual for us to do stories based on tips sent to us by readers. This time the inspiration for the story comes from a thread on our own message board. Microbudget filmmaker Sonny Fernandez has pretty much been running what amounts to a production blog in the "INDIEcent" section of our message board on the filming of his latest feature The Last Battleground.

Bayona Talks Hater!

All right, so there’s not a helluva lot of insight in this Q&A with The Orphanage director J.A. Bayona, but it is the first time he’s spoken about Hater, the upcoming adaptation he’s doing of David Moody’s book, so it’s worth a mention.

Burton's Dark Shadows Uncertain

I wonder if there will come a time where Tim Burton and Johnny Depp just admit they’re the same person. I know it’s true, I’ve seen Burton shape-shift into Depp and vice versa, but the public at large just calls me “crazy”. What's my point? Oh, right, the long-proposed Dark Shadows movie...

Ricci & Neeson Head to After.Life

And here I was getting ready to write this one off as DOA. It’s been a long time since any movement’s taken place on After.Life, the feature debut of Agnieszka Wotowicz-Vosloo (try saying that three times fast) about a woman caught between life and death. Today Variety announced that not only is it not dead, it’s more alive then ever thanks to some great casting!

Tamblyn to Blackout This January

I've never had the misfortune of being trapped in an elevator but I'm quite certain it sucks. I'm postive being trapped in an elevator for 20 hours would suck even more so. Being trapped in an elevator for 20 hours with two other people, one of whom turns out to be a serial killer, suffice to say that's not a scenario you want to find yourself in. That's the scenario Amber Tamblyn finds herself in in Blackout, coming to DVD this January.
