Trick 'r Treat, better known as one of the biggest missed opportunities a studio has ever experienced (seriously, what were you thinking, Warner Bros.?) is a damned fine film that showcases one of the best horror characters to come about in ages.
It's been over two years since there was anything to report in regard to a live action adaptation of the Devil's Due graphic novel The Nye Incidents. When last we checked in, Dark Castle was in the mix along with director Todd Lincoln. Now a few things have changed.

Well that was quick. Another variation of the official teaser one-sheet for Final Destination 5 has made its way online, and we have every foreboding pixel of it right here for your death cheating perusal.
In the media a few hours can make a big difference. Take Final Destination 5 for example. This morning the UK trailer found its way online. Now mere hours later we have the US trailer, the first teaser artwork and the official plot crunch. Oh, death. How we have missed you!
While we all wait for the Stateside eye candy to drop later tonight, our friends across the pond got their first look at Final Destination 5 early this morning and we have their trailer for you right here, right now. Like that Jesus Jones song, but less repetitive.
We're hoping for the fifth entry into the Final Destination franchise that death's latest design is a lot less silly. Please give us back the visceral mean-spirited cat and mouse induced gore and mayhem of the first two flicks! Thanks to G4 we'll be getting our first glimpse of what's to come sooner rather than later.
Remember back on April 1st when we did a news story about the possibility of everyone's favorite lovable Halloween demon Sam from Trick 'r Treat making a return for more terror? You thought we were joking. Well apparently ... we weren't.
If you've never indulged in the absolute goodness that is Mike Dougherty's incredible anthology film Trick 'r Treat do yourself a favor - stop what you're doing go immediately to the story and buy a copy like yesterday. The first whisper of a sequel hit online today and we have the details for you.
We're still kind of marveling at the fact that an exorcism flick starring Anthony Hopkins could fall on the mediocre side of the fence, but nevertheless, The Rite is on its way to home video and you can make up your own mind.
Sometimes it seems as if certain projects are destined never to be made. A live action adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman definitely seems to be one of them.
On March 1st Warner Bros./Gravitas released Matt Sconce's Stricken on 15 million televisions via On Demand.

Last June we told you about a new animated series based upon the hit television series here in the States, "Supernatural". Though details were thin, we've finally gotten our hands on a preview for you! Dig it!
Still on the fence about checking out "The Vampire Diaries" despite its ringing endorsement from several members of the DC staff? Then why not enter this new contest in which you can win a free download of the first two episodes of Season 1 to give you a taste of the show?
It cannot be easy being a Final Destination screenwriter at this point in the game. Where can you really take the franchise?
