You thought we were done adding guests, didn’t you? You thought, just because we’re less than two months from the 2nd annual Fear Fest, there was just no more room for talent, didn’t you?

Underworld 4 Possible?

I never once thought the theatrical future of Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans was in question, but I guess it was by some parties. If you're among those parties, allow me to calm your troubled minds; the prequel will, indeed, be in theaters. I know this because Lakeshore Entertainment pres Tom Rosenberg told me.

Sisters, Earth Remakes Name Composers

It’s being reported this morning via Upcoming Film Scores that a slew of new sci-fi/horror movies are finally settling on composers, and since this is the first time I’ve heard mention of the upcoming Tale of Two Sisters remake (pictured) in quite a while, it’s worth a mention as it’s a very good sign that the film is nearly done. How good it will be still remains to be seen.

Ron Perlman has certainly embraced his role as the once and future Hellboy, lending his vocal talents to two animated films about Big Red as well as the upcoming video game Hellboy: The Science of Evil, which has been in development for seemingly ever now.

Teeth Opening Online

In case you hadn't been aware, the Michell Lichtenstein coming-of-age horror film Teeth (review) opens in theaters this Friday, right up against a little monster movie you might have heard of called Cloverfield.

NECA's Original Alien

With all the new toys coming out celebrating Alien Vs. Predator and its sequel, I’m sure glad NECA had the presence of mind to go back to the classic original Alien film for their next collectible.

Bousman Ready to Show Repo!

As Darren Lynn Bousman finalizes the editing on Repo! The Genetic Oprea, it sounds like he’s starting to really wonder just how the general populace will react to it. It’s an all-singing horror movie, for God’s sake, I guess you can’t blame him.

A zombie with an identity crisis. That’s how the titular lead of Otto: or Up with Dead People is described in the film’s official synopsis. First time I’ve heard that one!

R.I.P. Maila Nurmi a.k.a. Vampira

A true genre legend has passed on. Maila Nurmi, known to fans as Vampira, passed away in her sleep at the age of 86 due to natural causes. Born Maila Elizabeth Syrjäniemi on December 21, 1921, Nurmi will always be remembered for her classic Gothic look that inspired many of our favorite horror icons including the world famous Elvira. Nobody did it better. Nobody ever will.

Ghost Son Comes Home
