McFarlane Talks Spawn Reboot

I still remember leaving the theatre after watching the Spawn movie. My head was killing me. All that CGI. All those loud effects. The cartoonish looking battles. The missed opportunities. The only thing right with it was surprisingly enough John Leguizamo's portrayal of Clowny. What could a sequel or a remake hold for us spurned fans?

James Marsden Signs Up for Straw Dogs Redux

There's no doubt Sam Peckinpah's 1971 film Straw Dogs, which was based upon the book The Siege at Trencher's Farm by Gordon Williams, is widely regarded as an absolute classic.

The final piece seems to have fallen into place for the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street reboot: At last Freddy has his new Nancy, and she's definitely not a household name ... at least not yet.

Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Clip: The Uninvited

If you ask those who have seen Paramount's The Uninvited whether or not it is good, they will probably hit you with a really confused glance and then shrug their shoulders. It seems nobody really knows for sure. Come April 28th the DVD and Blu-ray will hit stores, so I guess we can figure it out for ourselves soon enough.
