Time to squash all those rumors about Sarah Michelle Gellar vacating the long-gestating adaptation of American McGee’s Alice. And who better to do the squashing than Gellar herself?

Argento Goes Giallo

Though I’ve still not heard a lot of good about Dario Argento’s latest film, the much anticipated finale to his Mothers trilogy, The Mother of Tears, and I really hated the last few movies he’s done outside of Masters of Horror, I’m always willing to give that crazy Italian another chance.

Just got an e-mail today regarding the disappearance of several people who went missing about a year ago while camping in the middle of the Bible Woods, in Ohio.
