Saw VI Director Speaks!

Though I know he was kidding, at one point in an interview done by Fearnet with Saw VI director Kevin Greutert, he mentions he hopes there’s a breatkthrough in time travel technology so they have a good way to bring back Shawnee Smith’s character, Amanda.

Saw IV Duo to Raise Hell

Yes, it sucked when the guys who made Inside (review) were told their script for the Hellraiser remake wasn’t what the Weinstein Co. was looking for. Andrew had a nice tirade about it in the last Dinner for Fiends, actually, give it a listen. But this new development is promising...
