The Dead Matter Trailer is Live!

This Halloween Hot Topic has decided to celebrate all things dark and spooky (as opposed to their usual light & colorful tone) with the launch of a special Halloween website called, confusingly, T3n Th1rty One (that’s “Ten Thirty-One” for those of you struggling at home).

Official Plot, First Art for Bat Out of Hell

Though it’s been kept under wraps since it was first announced, the official synopsis for the Drew McWeeny/Scott Swan-penned flick Bat Out of Hell, which is set to be directed by none other than Joe Dante, revealed its true nature over the weekend.

Official Let the Right One In Poster

I really don’t know how I feel about this or pretty much any other poster that’s come out for Let the Right One In. They’ve all got the same general color scheme and don’t really say anything at all about the movie. I find it strange since there are so many iconic shots in this film that could be better utilized.

Twilight, oh how the little girls scream for it. Twilight, oh how their boyfriends will hate it. Twilight, oh how tired I am of it...

Alex Proyas and Realistic Vampires

Alex Proyas (Dark City) had many of us wondering just what he was going to do with the Dracula name when he spoke briefly about the project at SDCC 08. Indeed Mr. Proyas has great vision, but what could he bring to the vampire world that we haven't already seen before?

Twilight Undergoing Reshoots!

I know Syxx usually likes to handle all the Twilight news himself, but as a belated birthday present, I thought I'd give him a break and cover this update.

Moore Wants Wahlberg for Virulents

John Moore, the director who showed up with an almost shot-for-shot remake of The Omen a few years back before going on to (possibly) redeeming himself with a badass Max Payne film, thinks we’re all being way too serious these days.

Just got some good news from the folks at Unstable Ground that a feature film version of their cool vampire short film “Ending the Eternal” is on its way.
