Tom Holland Wants You For New Film

Tom Holland - director of horror classics like "Fright Night" and "Child's Play - dropped us a line today to ask that we help him spread the word about his latest project. It looks like he's going even further down the road of "fan participation" than we've seen up to this point. Here's the Press Release:

"Dead Rising 2" is Officially Announced

Although the Wii version of the killing-zombies-in-a-mall classic "Dead Rising" hasn't even hit shelves yet, the years of rumors are now finally validated. Several reputable gaming sites are passing along this mini press release that contains some of the juicy details:

BATTLESTAR 4.16 "Blood on The Scales"

Hey Battlestar Galactica fans,

I apologize once again for this review being late. This will be the last time, I promise. I was busy at the NY Comic Con this weekend, making my rounds promoting this site and meeting some awesome people, one of which you can see in the photo I posted. Yep, that is Aaron Douglas, or "Chief Galen Tyrol" from BSG. He was really laid back and had no problem taking a picture with a weirdo like me. Right now, Aaron is promoting a new series called "Emmisary", which I am sure I will end up reviewing for BSG fans down the road.

So I finally watched “Saw”

So it wasn’t until recently that I started watching horror movies frequently again. When I was a youngin I would spend just about every Friday night at home watching horror movies and not being able to sleep. Into my teens I would rent just about anything I could get my hands on, the weirder sounding the better. Then a little movie called “Scream” came out in 1996 and satirized the films I grew up loving. Sure it was great for the horror genre and it was sort of funny to see them play off of all the standard slasher stereotypes.

Horror Headlines: Monday January 9th, 2009

Romero says "...of the Dead" is about... Palestine? Oh dear. I think I've run out of ways to say that "Diary of the Dead" was one of the preachiest films I've ever seen, so this is not good news.

Teaser poster for the Stephen King adaptation "Dolen's Cadillac", which is being directed by King veteran Mick Garris. There's also a detailed synopsis at the link, much too long to paraphrase here.

It seems like there's deleted scenes from "Friday the 13th" in this new web spot. Let's just hope the topless water skiing makes it in the final cut... for obvious reasons.

Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell" has garnered some pretty good buzz in the past few weeks due to a few lucky people actually being able to see it. Now comes word that the studio is testing both a PG-13 and and R rated version. Not sure what I've ever heard of a studio doing this, but I'm sure it's not the first time. Let's hope they make the right decision.

In Real People News: 

Florida is a "modern day Ponzi scheme" according to this professor. Makes me feel great about my current choice of home state.

Deer smart enough to wander into a PetSmart when it needed medical care, remained calm while being treated, and then got up and ran out. The story omits the part where it got smashed on the highway 10 seconds later. I don't know if that actually happened, but one can only assume.

Man robs convenience store, steals two beers, sits down on the bench outside. This one, sadly, also comes to us from Florida.

On this day in history: 

1979: Serial killer Ted Bundy abducts, rapes, and murders twelve year old Kimberly Leach of Lake City, Florida. He takes her from her junior high school, where she had been elected runner-up Valentine Queen the day before. Kimberly's remains aren't found for eight weeks. It is for this murder that Ted Bundy is sent to the Electric Chair ten years later.
