Lots of names have been floating around about who will helm Halloween 3D for the Weinsteins (providing they work out their troubles by next summer). From Steve Miner to Alex Aja to My Bloody Valentine helmer Patrick Lussier. While all of these makes sense, it seems that Lussier's name is packing the heaviest punch.
It looks like a very unhappy Halloween for Bob and Harvey Weinstein and everyone over at Dimension. It seems the studio is bleeding out and not in the fun way that we're used to seeing up on the big screen.
This past Thursday Dread Central received an exclusive invitation from John Murdy (the creative director behind Halloween Horror Nights, which kicks of October 2 at Universal Studios Hollywood theme park – see our previous item here) for a bit of fun in the Saw: Game Over maze.

Can it get any better? Yes, it can! Finally the icon everybody has been clamouring for is coming home to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights! That's right, kids, come October 2nd strap in for some vintage Michael Myers induced terror!
Here at Dread we're absolute suckers for haunted mazes and attractions.

Halloween is exactly three short months away, which means the evil masterminds behind Halloween Horror Nights are hard at work trying to think of new and different ways to scare the shit out of attendees. This year Jigsaw is waiting; prepare to step into his demented world.
Assuming the role of Dr. Samuel Loomis for Rob Zombie in his two Halloween films has not only introduced the great Malcolm McDowell to a new generation of fans, but it has also cemented his place in horror film history. Now there's a place to go online to celebrate the man's long and illustrious career!
Ever wish you could be in a Saw movie? Me either. Between the convoluted storylines and the fact that nobody sticks around very long, I think it's best to steer clear of that wacky Jigsaw and his uncanny ability to remain twenty steps ahead of his hapless victims. But if you're really ready for more Saw, then Universal's Halloween Horror Nights have got you covered!
