"Open Water" DVD Details Released

Open Water is a film that due to unforeseen circumstances, I was unable to see during its theatrical run. If you're like me, and have a big interest in the film but never got to see it, you're in luck. Actually, you're in luck even if you did see it and wish to own it. You see where I'm going with this? Eh? That's right, boils and ghouls--starting December 28th, the Open Water DVD will be available in stores near you! But will it include any special features, you ask?(read more...)

Raimi to Hold a Second "Grudge"

Sam Raimi's production outfit Ghost House Pictures (whatever happened to Renaissance, anyway?) is looking to fund a sequel to their recent horror remake hit The Grudge. Stephen Susco, the writer of the previous entry, has been contracted to pen the second film in what may become a franchise. The Grudge is a remake of the 2003 Japanese horror flick Ju-On, and the two films shared the same director, Takashi Shimizu.(read more...)

"Evil Dead": The Remake

Yet another classic horror film that is entirely unique and probably doesn't need any sort of remake is getting remade... and this time, at the behest of its original director. Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures is gearing up to remake The Evil Dead. Raimi will not direct the film himself, but is actively looking for a new person to take the helm. Although there's been no official casting, word has come down the pike that both Seann William Scott (American Pie) and Justin Theroux (Mulholland Drive) are strong contenders to replace Bruce Campbell as Ash.

Lions Gate to Remake "Scanners"

David Cronenberg's getting the remake treatment lately. Lions Gate is working on a new version of Scanners, inheriting the project from its days at the recently bought-out Artisan. Pierre David, René Malo and Clark Peterson will serve as producers. James Wan (Saw) has already passed on directing (he also passed on Fox's in-the-works remake of The Fly).

Tobe Hooper Planning "Toolbox Murders" Sequel

Tobe Hooper (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame), in case you didn't know, just finished directing a new movie called The Toolbox Murders (one movie I am seriously anticipating), which is an in-name-only remake of the 1970s slasher flick. Hooper's Toolbox Murders should be hitting stores later this year (yep, it's direct-to-video) and already Mr. Hooper is planning a sequel.(read more...)

Shooting will begin in the Summer of 2005.(read more...)

Thomas Harris, author of the "Silence of the Lambs," "Hannibal," and "Red Dragon" novels, announced Friday that he is working on a 4th entry in the series, and of course, the film rights have already been snatched up.
