While sifting through the wonderful place known as the Internet, we came across something exciting at DVDActive: the 28 Weeks Later (review) DVD art! It isn't anything flashy, but the amount of red an

Exclusive: Feb. Start for Hatchet 2?

After the sneak peek at Adam Green’s follow-up to Hatchet, the slow burn psycho drama Spiral (review), Green took the stage at Fantasia for the usual Q&A that follows the films, and even though he was

Abrams on Cloverfield

I’ve been going back and forth with a reader named Rob about this, and it’s almost as if JJ Abrams was reading our e-mails.... which, knowing his works, wouldn't surprise me too much. He's sneaky lik
