There was a time when it was always a unfortunate human fighting for their life against an unfriendly alien lifeform. Oh, how times have changed. Now all of a sudden it's the aliens that can't seem to get along with one another and we humans have to worry about getting caught in their crossfire. Now doubt this is fault of Alien vs. Predator, the film that clearly started all manner of extraterrestrial pissing contests.
It’s funny, I was just thinking about Killer Pad the other day wondering whatever the hell happened to it.
There is a very short list of films that will have a small theatrical run that I feel like I have to see before they’re done and sent to DVD, and The Orphanage (review) is one of them.
Now this is not casting news that makes me happy. James Marsden, better known to most as the whinny Cyclops from X-Men is in final negotiations to star in Richard Kelly’s long-awaited The Box, opposite Cameron Diaz, so say The Hollywood Reporter.
With Halloween came new announcements from Sideshow Collectibles, as is always the case. And yes, it is good...

While I’ve not yet been able to spend nearly as much time with Manhunt 2 as I’d have liked, last night I was able to put the finally-released Manhunt 2 into my Nintendo Wii for an hour or two of nastiness.
When I saw a listing for a new movie called Swamp Devil I just naturally assumed it was going to be a horror flick about some sort of swampy Bigfoot, like the Florida Everglades' Skunk Ape, the Honey Island Swamp Monster of Louisiana, or the Fouke Monster made famous in The Legend of Boggy Creek. Then I finally found a little blurb describing the actual plot and saw the phrase "tree-like creature" describing the featured creature.
Three more films from Filmax were announced as part of this year’s AFM, one of them the latest from Romasanta/[REC] helmer Paco Plaza! That film is called Circus, about a family who has a run-in with a very strange troupe of circus performers after one of their tigers almost causes an accident. Pretty soon they discover that the performers have trapped them there with them, and the skills of the troupe are used against those who try and get away with deadly results.
I can’t believe Variety referred to us as "geeks". We’re the ones who make the films successful, could they at least refer to us as "fans"? Sheesh.

I've always felt pretty safe. That's all about to change as Franck Khalfoun's thriller P2 hits theatres next Friday, November 9th.
