Ask anyone, I'm a sucker for a good haunted house flick. There's just something about a good ghost story that gets my blood pumping. On next Tuesday it looks like there will be a new reason to be afraid of the dark as Michael Morris' Fear House hits DVD.
With the shake up over at New Line, a lot of projects that were once a glimmer in the eyes of producer Mike DeLuca are in danger of being shelved. But that’s never stopped the man before.
I wasn't too sure about running this, but the following "set report" that was forwarded to STYD does make for an interesting read for those of us following Benicio del Toro's Wolfman remake.
So, what is better than strippers? Free strippers? Nah. Strippers without drug habits? Meh. Zombie strippers with a hankering for human flesh? Thank you, Sony!!!

After reporting just the other day about FYE/Suncoast getting an exclusive edition of Cloverfield encased in steel (“Cloverfield’s Crushed DVD” – March 2008), it’s not too surprising that it won’t be the only flick getting the treatment in the coming weeks.

Nope, it's for real.
More names have been added to Sam Raimi’s return to horror, the possession film Drag Me to Hell, according to The Hollywood Reporter this morning. Shooting begins on Monday in LA.
This is just obnoxious; this morning Variety got word that Aria Films and First Circle Films are teaming with Axis 3D to produce a 3-D movie called The Mortician. Sounds intriguing based on the title alone, no?
OK, I think we can all safely say that Rob Zombie's upcoming film Tyrannosaurus Rex is not the code name for The Nail movie, but it looks like the title may not be the final one at all.
