First we heard from Dan Aykroyd about the very real possibility of Ghostbusters 3 happening, then word came down from Columbia announcing it was being developed, and now Harold Ramis, who co-wrote and starred as Egon in the first two, dropped a line to the Chicago Tribune with some details that I can
I really don’t know how I feel about this or pretty much any other poster that’s come out for Let the Right One In. They’ve all got the same general color scheme and don’t really say anything at all about the movie. I find it strange since there are so many iconic shots in this film that could be better utilized.
Seems the upcoming Children of the Corn remake, which started rolling in Iowa this week, has found itself a Malachai in the form of Cirque du Freak actor Daniel Newman, according to STYD this morning.
Douglas Preston and Mario Spezi’s best-selling serial killer novel The Monster of Florence has been picked up for a filmed adaptation by Tom Cruise and United Artists, according to Variety. Cruise will produce and possibly star in the film.
I’ve wondered off and on whatever happened to Mark Pellington, the man who brought us The Mothman Prophecies a few years back. Variety got the answer in the form of a new film Pellington’s been hired on to direct for New Line called Solace.
I've started looking forward to Friday nights, when I sip some vino and cull the stories that will comprise the Weekly Wrap-Up. Sometimes it is a struggle to find the thread that ties them together, but for the week of August 30-September 5, 2008, it was no problem determining the theme: Indies! Incredible, edible indies.
We first reported the news that VIZ Pictures will be releasing the live action Death Note (review) DVD on September 16, 2008, way back in June, but details on the disc were scarce. Today VIZ Media sent out a press release with the skinny on what we can expect.
Recently we caught up with Don Mancini and David Kirschner regarding the upcoming Child's Play remake so it was time to do a little diggin'! We all know that Dourif is coming back and that the duo want to bring the remake back to the film's scarier roots, but was there anything else to learn at this point?

Choosing a date with little to no competing shows around it is a good start, so in that sense the first annual Macabre Con is ahead of the game.
We’d be remiss to forget our horror-loving brothers across the pond, who I’m sure are just as eagerly looking forward to seeing more of Jigsaw’s antics in Saw V as we are. The sequel opens on October 24th in UK cinemas, and to give Dread some international flavor, I thought we’d share the UK quad poster with you guys today.
Just a few days after we posted an article that was the result of a recent chat I had with Jeffrey Combs (read it here), word has come down about the premiere for one of the films he mentions very much looking forward to seeing, William Malone’s Parasomnia.
We’ve been keeping info on the new Tara Reid opus Vipers close to our chests since it was first announced, but we’ve done it for your own good. We know how insane the hype can be for a new horror movie with Reid so we’ve basically been trying to avoid mass hysteria.
Fabrice du Welz’s Vinyan is one of the first lucky recipients of a distro deal courtesy of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, which kicked off yesterday, according to THR. Not too shabby getting your film nabbed within the first 24 hours of any fest.
Check this out; writer Stef Hutchinson just sent over an exclusive look at one of the covers for the new comic Halloween: The First Death of Laurie Strode, which is set to hit comic shelves on September 24th from Devil’s Due.
Jack Messit, the director of Midnight Movie which will be out on DVD come January 9th, 2009, did us a solid and sent over one of the three new promo posters for his monster flick.
