A couple more stories for you today came crawling out of the land of Twitter, or, as it is also known, the Twitterverse, concerning casting on two upcoming flicks we're all pretty excited about: Resident Evil: Afterlife and Darren Bousman's Mother's Day.
Coincidence? Brilliant marketing campaign? Or just downright spooky? All across the Net today light bulbs have been going off above people's heads as they realized that on November 16th, 2009, the date for the official premiere of Summit's first Twilight Saga sequel, New Moon, there will be a legitimate "new moon". And that's just the half of it!
It's a well known fact by now that every Halloween a new Saw movie will haunt theatres courtesy of Lionsgate, but what sometimes gets lost in the shuffle is the goodness of the annual Saw Blood Drives, which are a lot more than just sexy nurses dressed up in ghastly ways for charity. Now's your chance to go behind-the-scenes and meet the nurses themselves!
We've been telling you about the official print follow-up to Bram Stoker's Dracula for a while now. Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew, has penned a sequel to the original novel along with Long Island screenwriter Ian Holt, which even has the official backing of the Stoker Estate, the first to have such a designation since the original film adaptation starring Bela Lugosi. Now that the book is in the can, a promotional trailer has hit the web.

Finally after months of hints, suggestions, and hopes, a sequel to the 2006 film Silent Hill has just been made official. And there's much rejoicing in the ash-laden streets.
I lost count of exactly how many Silent Night, Deadly Night films there were. Let's see ... there was the classic original flick that caused quite a stir. So much so that they barely filmed any original footage for its sequel Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 and things just sort of went batshit crazy from there. Bill Moseley was involved, there were brain pans, killer toys, Egyptian cults ... you name it. Lionsgate announced today that they will be bringing three of those crazy-ass sequels home in one shiny three-disc box set.
Even though Saw VI hasn't even graced a single screen yet, Lionsgate is pushing forward with the seventh entry into its long-running franchise entitled Saw VII 3D.
