Lions Gate Films, the God of horror movie distributors, will be releasing the newest film directed by Brian Yuzna (director of cult classics such as Bride of Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III, The Dentist, and Beyond Re-Animator).

B-Books Bring Movie Killers to the Written Page

So you thought that you'd seen the last of Jason X, eh? Apparently, not only is the robotic Power Ranger-form of Jason Vorhees back, but so is his original, Camp Crystal Lake-residing self, along with Freddy K., and for the first time in a long while, the two won't be part of the same franchise. You see, this new book company called Black Flame Publishing (http://www.blackflame.com/blackflame.html) has recently reared its wonderfully ugly head, and it has been given permission from New Line Cinema to create new, original sequels to the famous slasher franchises we know and love… in book-form. Black Flame publisher Marc Gascoigne recently spoke to Fangoria.com about the new horror lines his company is creating, and here's a bit of what he had to say:(read more...)

"Saw" DVD Details Announced

I regret from the bottom of my deepest clavicle not going to see Saw during its theatrical run. It seems as if everyone is rubbing it in, too, because all I hear everywhere I go is how awesome the film was. I get the point, I screwed up by not going out and viewing it. Now, however, I am in luck, because Bloody-disgusting.com has reported that the film is coming to DVD, though a specific date is strangely not listed.(read more...)

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...)

Rawat Joins Project Greenlight's "Feast"

Navi Rawat (who "Angel" fans will recall as the psychotic slayer from the deeply disturbing Season 5 ep "Damage") has signed on to the next Project Greenlight movie Feast. She joins Balthazar Getty, Henry Rollins and Jason Mewes on the project. The film is being executive produced by Wes Craven.

Tomaselli's New Project is Seaworthy

Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) and Judith O'Dea (Night of the Living Dead) have already committed to the picture, which is about supernatural riptides. Shooting will begin in the Summer of 2005.(read more...)

Charles Band, the brains behind the Full Moon Pictures company, recently announced that he has joined forces with Koch Vision to unleash upon the world what could basically be considered Full Moon 2, only this time it's called Forbidden Worlds.(read more...)

"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...)
