You know it's a slow DVD release week when two of the offerings are a couple of rather obscure films whose main selling points are that they star folks from The Twilight Saga. And speaking of Twilight, if you can look at the new cover art for the Near Dark Blu-ray without thinking of those sparkly vamps, then you're one of the lucky ones.
Though it's been completed for nearly two years now, there hasn't been a single peep about any release plans for Yam Larana's American redux of his own film The Echo (review). Thankfully all that silence hasn't stopped several stills from popping up online at the film's Facebook page!
Get ready for an Asian horror remake that's as unconventional as can be, riddled with things we have never seen before! In The Echo we're just getting more unsuspecting people who put their noses where they shouldn't be and end up being fodder for a lingering curse! Nope. Nothing familiar about that plot at all!

Ah, the sweet beauty of Montreal in July. For me there’s nothing like it. I love coming to this city every year when it’s at its very peak, and this year I couldn’t be happier simply because this trip came so close to not happening.
And it’s about time! I’ve been waiting all day for Fantasia’s official site to finally get the 2008 schedule up, since we’ve been giving you stuff to look forward to on it all week, and I can happily report that it’s live!
An ex-con moves into an old apartment building, where he encounters a domestic problem involving a police officer, his wife, and their daughter. When he tries to intervene, however, a mysterious curse entraps him.

Hot on the heels of the news that Yam Laranas’ The Echo would be making it’s North American premiere at this year’s Fantasia, Twitch Film just got an early look at the official international sales trailer for the film, which you can check out below.
From the Philippines comes Yam Laranas (Sigaw). He's bringing The Echo with him! How do we know? Because the poster is out.
The first bit of casting news has come down for the upcoming remake of the Fillipino horror hit, Sigaw, which has been retitled The Echo here for good reason.
We knew it was only a matter of time before the Filipino horror hit Sigaw would find its way into the hands of remakers, and of course the primary force behind it is Vertigo Entertainment.
