Eli Roth is making a PG-13 film, reportedly along the lines of "Cloverfield" or "Transformers". In the statement, he also echoes his assertion that he's "pushed the violence in R movies about as far as [he] can push it." To be honest, if you take away the over the top nature of his films, I'm not sure he's such a fantastic filmmaker that he can pull something the likes of "Cloverfield" off, but I guess we'll see. In the meantime, let's add this to the list of the 50 other projects he can't stop talking about.

Guillermo Del Toro has said that If there's a "Hellboy III", he'll only do it if there's a contract that says there can be no more sequels or prequels. The funny thing is, I actually think he's got the power in those pudgy little fingers of his to get the job done. Imagine that, being respectful to the source material and not milking it for all it's worthy, crazy!

Christian Slater is set to star in an adaptation of the Stephen King short story "Dolan's Cadillac". I just wanted to report on this because my ingrained 80's nostalgia requires me to report on all Christian Slater related stories. Remember "Gleaming The Cube"? Ya, that was awesome.

So I just finished watching The trailer for the "It's Alive" remake that debuted at Cannes recently, and I'm still not sure what I think. I can't help but think "ugh", not because it's a remake but I'm just not sure that it looks interesting. Thoughts?

For you podcast junkies out there, many of you may be familiar with Ira Glass and Chicago Public Radio's "This American Life". Always an informative and introspective look at America and those that live with in it, this week's episode provides a bit of real life horror that is pretty damn disturbing in hindsight.

Episode 354: Mistakes Were Made

Pics from M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening" today. The film is about a mysterious "apocalyptic crisis" that people are running from. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that we're revealed what the "crisis" is in a big twist. Schnaars' is excited already.

Movie called "Splatter Disco" starring Debbie Rochon. I'm assuming if you're a reader here than you can fill in the blanks yourself.

Megan Fox has posted behind the scenes pics from "Jennifer's Body" on her official site, none of which (unfortunately) are of her body. The flick is written by "Juno" scribe Diablo Cody and concerns a cheerleader who specializes in offing her classmates.

When I was a kid my entire knowledge of British tv consisted of Monty Python, Benny Hill, and everything else- the weird stuff they showed on PBS that looked like it was filmed on VHS. These days, British tv has gained some ground with Americans with the success of Spaced, The Office and Doctor Who as well as BBC America and other channels rebroadcasting shows from the UK. My girlfriend is British, and I work with a bunch of Brits for a British organization so I've had the chance to find out about a lot of UK tv that I'd never heard of.

I thought I would continue on Schnaars' video game theme today and post this picture.

That sound you hear? It's my childhood being gently bent over a table and ordered to "not say a word".

Jesus. Why do people do this shit to me?

Also, I can't help but think that this could be some sort of composite sketch of the creepy Argentinian Gnome from a few weeks back. Try that one on for size and let me know how well you sleep tonight.
