The 5th trailer for "The Dark Knight"? Okay, this is getting out of hand people. There won't be any movie left to see in the theater!

Darren Aronofsky's name is being thrown around as a possible candidate to direct the "Robocop" remake, which is apparently being slated for some time in 2010. No word on if this means Robocop will go "ass to ass" with his arch nemesis... but one would have to assume.

A North Carolina man loves "Halloween" so much, that he's building himself an exact replica of the Myers house to live in. I've got to admire his moxy, but this seems like a bit much to me, no?

Details on "Jeepers Creepers III: Cathedral" (first off, that's the official title). Here's the breakdown. It stars Gina Phillips, supposedly 23 years older and with a teenage son. The beginning will be a prologue in the old West... oh, and it will suck donkey balls. Okay so that last part was my own prediction, but have you seen the second one? I can't be that far off.

In Real People News: 

Two Wisconsin men are being charged with Necrophilia, after the state had to amend it's laws which did not previously prohibit the act. At this point, with the internet, we should just make laws about having sex with ANYTHING that's not human (or alive). Because let's face it, if it has a hole, some dude has stuck his wang in it at one point or another.

You know it had to happen eventually, two grannies use their Hovearounds to joust in the supermarket. Greatest. Story. Ever.

On this day in history: 

1972: A herd of angry, startled elephants emerges from India's Chandka Forest, and tramples five villages, killing 24 people.

Fear Itself Sucks

Yeah! You like that title? Feel the fire!

I'm going to cut Stuart Gordon's episode, Eater, a little slack because it was better than the four previous episodes. Plus, I'm a fan. I even liked his Dreams in the Witch House adaptation for Masters of Horror. Like Masters of Horror, though, Fear Itself more or less lived up to my expectations and I have a few thoughts about how they might make it better.

The latest theatrical trailer for the first person POV "Quarantine"

The theatrical trailer for "Quarantine" is haunting me. It keeps popping up as if to mock me. In my never ending quest to hate on all remakes without question (and be cynical in general), I MUST have negative feelings for this remake of "[REC]". There's also that whole first person zombie debacle that shall remain nameless. It may have soured me forever! Here's my "Quarantine" problem, I can't find a valid reason to hate it!

Site Notes, Bloggers and Birthdays

Hey folks, just wanted to drop by today with a few site notes about some stuff coming up over the next few weeks.

First off, you probably noticed that we have brought two new bloggers on board. When you get the chance, be sure to welcome Bryan and Christine to the fold by commenting on their intro posts. They both come well qualified and ready to hit you upside the head with pop culture detritus, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
