Meth Bikers Vs. Travellers in Exit Speed

Just imagine the scenario; all you want to do is kick back on a nice, quiet bus ride across the vast, dull expanse of Texas, but a gang of meth-addicted bikers just will not let you get some shut eye. What would you do? Well, the ten strangers in Exit Speed don’t have to wait long to find out their reaction to this rather unique situation: They fight back. Trapped in the desert with nothing but crazy bikers surrounding me, I think I’d find a bit of tough guy in me, too.

Mancini Talks Child's Play Reboot

Despite what they say, I just don’t get why the Child’s Play franchise needs a reboot. A new film that picks up where Seed ended could be pretty damn cool if they kept it dark, but at least series creator Don Mancini’s doing it himself.

Boogeyman Scribes to Pen Poltergeist

Poltergeist just cries for a remake, doesn't it? There's no way any of the young kids today can relate to a film without high-def TVs, cellphones and MTV approved actors! Yes, it totally needs an update...

Blood Night at Monster Mania 11!

I keep hearing about Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet in that strange way that a film’s title will become implanted in your brain without you really understanding why. So I guess it was inevitable we mention it in these pages, eh?

Fantastic Fest Celebrates the Best Kills

Those of you lucky enough to be heading out to this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX (September 18th-25th), be sure to bring along your absolute favorite gore movie to share with your fellow sickos because the organizers are planning on at least one grue-soaked evening of mayhem!

Full Moon's Sequelmania 2009

We already know how much Charles Band loves puppet terrors. Judging by the new slate of Full Moon films Band has announced for next year, it would seem he loves sequels almost as much.

Warners Goes Deeper, Bluer

I can’t believe we’re sitting here, months later, and still worrying about an actor’s strike. The writer’s strike was bad enough; why do we have to go through this again? Can't Hollywood set aside its differences so Deep Blue Sea 2 can finally be made!?

Dean Cain, Maneater?

You know things are askew in Hollywood when Dean Cain joining a film warrants a mention in The Hollywood Reporter. I don’t really know how it’s possible, but for some reason the fact that Cain has signed on for Michael Emanuel’s Maneater is trade-worthy information...

Specs and Art for Zombie's 3-Disc Halloween

In August of last year Uncle Creepy and myself sat in an empty theatre with our jaws hung open as we experienced Rob Zombie's Halloween (review). We had just been assaulted by the f-word and Loomis' crazy magical car summoning abilities and hoped to never talk about it again.

Dead Space: Downfall Trailer Online!

We just got a heads up from a reader cryptically known only as “Wolf” that the trailer for Dead Space: Downfall, the animated film that serves as a prequel to the Dead Space video game, is now online.

Stop Motion Poe Hits DVD!

We just recieved some very good news for all you fans of stop-motion Poe adaptations!
