How cool is it to see Joe Dante’s name in the trades for two days in a row? Very cool, that’s how! Yesterday we told you he’d be directing the new film from Masters of Horror writers Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan, Bat out of Hell; today he was officially attached to another outstanding horror project, The Hole.
During a quick visit over to the place where film conversations go to die (IMDB), I saw that last year's motel horror pic Vacancy (review) is receiving a second serving.
The second annual Spike TV Scream Awards marked a huge improvement over last year's show with severed limbs and gore spilling forth into the audience.
I wonder if anyone will confuse this new movie called The Hole with the Thora Birch film of the same name from a few years back. I also wonder why the hell screenwriters/studios can’t be a little more creative with their goddamn titles.
Two cool new posters for two very questionable films showed up online yesterday, and we thought you guys would dig ‘em. First one comes from Arrow in the Head and is for the Elisha Cuthbert-starer Captivity, the trailer for which wore out its welcome about three films into this past November’s After Dark HorrorFest for me.
Though the first few stills that came out for the horror movie Vacancy, which stars Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale, didn’t give the most exciting first impression, the trailer that just showed up on Yahoo! Movies definitely does. The duo star as a couple who check into a rundown motel after having some car problems and discover that their room seems to be used for snuff films as a regular practice. They try to escape, but as the trailer asks, how can you escape when they see everything?
With Sarah Jessica Parker out of the horror picture Vacancy, I’m sure its producers were freaking out a bit as to what kind of name actress they could get to take her place. It’s not often Parker agrees to horror, so her departure wasn’t too suprising, and I'm happy to report that her replacement is far more desirable.
Even though I’m trying really hard not to make a lot out of it, I guess it’s somewhat important for you guys to know that we still have more than a year to wait for Resident Evil: Extinction, the second sequel in the steadily declining franchise.
