SDCC 08: Paul Anderson on Death Race Sequel

Paul Bartel's Death Race 2000 is one of my favorite films from the '70s. It outranks even Star Wars on my list, and I'm a hardcore SW nerd. So, of course, my heart sank when I heard Paul W.S.

Rocky Horror Remake

Now this might go down in history as one of the worst ideas in Hollywood history; remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I mean, seriously, is this necessary? The original has been annoying me since it was released in 1975, why do we need another take on it?

Mirrors, It's Jaw-Ripping Fun!

Exclusive: Kitamura Revisits Versus for America!

Better Look at New Jason

The Rotten One over at STYD scored himself a hi-rez copy of the photo that's set the interwebz on fire with speculation, hatred, and anticipation!

A Poster For Friday?

Considering all the elements Michael Bay employs in his blockbuster films, we're pretty sure this is legit.

Theatrical Mirrors Trailer Now Online

Less than a month to go before Alexandre Aja's Mirrors hits theatres with Kiefer Sutherland as the lead. The ghosts are pissed and want revenge on the living in the most nasty of ways via any and all reflective surfaces. Yeah!
