Shocking news... Paramount is trying to screw you again. Just in time for the release of the remake they're releasing special editions of "Friday the 13th" parts 1-3. Now comes word that they're also working on special editions of parts 4-6. Gee, do you think they might be working their way up to releasing a nice big boxed set of these, after they've made their way through the whole series? My advice? If you already own the first shitty box set, just buy the special editions of the films you want. But don't be fooled into thinking that another money-sucking set isn't on the way.
I have always been excited for Eduardo Sanchez's ("The Blair With Project", "Altered") "Seventh Moon". The film is about a honeymooning couple in China who are there during festival said to celebrate the opening of the gateway to hell, and the spooky things that happen around that kind of setting. Anyways, here's the new trailer. It's still a little vague and quick-cuttey like the last one, but hopefully this means it's a bit closer to finding distribution. You will get word from us as soon as we know.
Man breaks into sex shop with the sole purpose of having his way with a few sex dolls, which he then promptly threw out in a nearby alley. To each his own I guess, but I've got to think that one of those stores might have some money in it too, no?
Speaking of hacking, if I had heard the phrase "Britney Spears Twitter was hacked" in 1999 I likely would have had a seizure from the double entrendre. Today? It just made me throw up in my mouth a little.
On this day in history:
1948: Residents of Maysville and nearby towns report UFO sightings, and at 2:45 PM, the US Air National Guard investigates. Capt. Thomas Mantell radios that the craft is "metallic and tremendous in size". It may have been a weather balloon. At 3:18 PM Mantell's P-51 goes down.
Tucked inside the Arts section of this weekend's New York Times was a little story that caught my eye: "Universal Sells Rogue for $150 Million." As a connoisseur of fine cinema, the name Rogue Pictures immediately jumped out, as it might to you as well. The reason?
A whole buttload of new stills from "The Descent 2", which is of course going on ahead despite the lack of Niel Marshall participation. I still don't have a ton of hope for this, but these stills are not bad. Not bad at all.
This trailer for "[REC] 2" seems to be coming from nowhere... Although that could be because people are questioning its authenticity. I do know that there is a sequel in production, and that the original directors are returning. Any thoughts from those who have seen the original?
1994: Figure skater Nancy Kerrigan is struck in the knees by a man in Detroit with a collapsible baton. It is later determined that her one of her rivals Tonya Harding and her boyfriend were responsible.
