The direct-to-DVD sequel Return to House on Haunted Hill touted itself as being the first “choose your own adventure” horror movie. All well and good when you’ve got a Warner Bros.-sized budget, but we just learned about a kid who decided to do one on his own likely before Return was even discussed.
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.
Literally about 10 minutes ago, Eduardo Sanchez updated his MySpace blog with the fantastic news that his next film, Seventh Moon, has officially wrapped!
Demonic possession. It is the stuff of Hollywood movies and nightmares, inspired by the belief in something dark and ominous that can invade the body and damn the soul for all eternity. It makes a great story, the struggle of good versus bad, right versus wrong, light against the dark.

We gave you the news about a new Poltergeist disc yesterday (“Belial & Poltergeist to Prom Night” – August 2007), but there was one fairly important element of Warner Bros’ plans to finally deliver a special edition of the Tobe Hooper classic no one seems to have caught; it’s coming back to theaters, too!
Michael Grais, writer of Poltergeist and Poltergeist II: The Other Side, now has a producer credit notch to add to his bed post; the thriller-horror film (as Variety calls it), The Wall.
More casting news for the Tale of Two Sisters remake has landed in the trades today, and it’s hot. Namely, said casting is Arielle Kebbel (The Grudge 2), who has signed on as one of the two sisters mentioned in the film's title. And that, friends, is hot. Bit of a change from the original since the girls seemed much younger in that, but then Koreans never do show their age very accurately, do they?
