This writer caught up with screenwriter Patrick Melton (the man behind such frightful fare, along with cohort Marcus Dunstan, as the Feast series, Saw IV through 3D and The Collector) last Thursday night to pick his brain on his current projects--namely, his involvement with Piranha 3DD, The Collection (the latter the sequel to 2009's The Collector) and hi
Ok, so it's just a quick Photoshop job, but since you guys have to be kept up on all things horror and it's been really slow lately, we might as well cover what is out there - including the small things!
