"Leslie, My Name is Evil" final trailer

Premiering at the Toronto film festival September 14th, "Leslie, My Name is Evil" tells the story of Perry, a conservative engineer, who is chosen as a juror for the Manson girl's trial. He falls in love with Leslie, a former beauty queen and death cult member, when he first sees her and through the trial is confronted by the darker elements of society.

Werewolf's Guide to Life

Zombies have been getting their full share of attention lately and now with the release of “The Wolf Man” looming, werefolk are going to get their fair shake too. In the soon to be released “The Werewolf’s Guide to Life,” Ritch Duncan & Bob Powers describe ways for the recently bitten lycanthrope to cope with their new found way of life. The manual provides guidance on: what to do if you have attacked someone, how to build a restraint room, dating and sex advice, and how to avoid detection.

"Deadman" Director Rumored

Variety is rumoring that Danish director Nikolaj Arcel is onboard to direct a "Deadman" movie based on the DC series of the same name. Arcel's films include "King's Game" and "Island or Lost Souls." Beloved Guillermo del Roro and Susan Montford are said to be producing.

"Deadman is the ghost of a murdered circus acrobat who has the power to possess the living in order to seek out his killer as well as to help the innocent. The character first appeared in 1967 and was created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Carmine Infantino."

Rob Zombie to remake "The Blob"

Okay, well, remember when Rob Zombie said he was going to make "TRex" well, wait, there is more. It has conveniently been announced on the eve of "H2" that Zombie will be remaking "The Blob."

But don't worry, he wants to get rid of that pesky blob thing and add trailer trash and titties, or as I like to call it, Sherri Moon Zombie. According to Variety, Rob says:

Danielle Harris in "Stake land"

If you follow Danielle Harris (@Halloweengal) on Twitter, then you already know that she will be starring in the new Jim Mickle film "Stake Land," a post apocalyptic vampire Western road movie. Let's just hope that all of those elements make a badass movie. I think this one looks okay. It has some alluring images anyway and is rumored to be a bit political, but I guess that comes with the cross burning territory.

"Under the Mountain" trailer

Based on a beloved kiwi fantasy novel, "Under the Mountain" is the latest film from "Black Sheep" director Johnathan King. Taking place in Auckland, New Zealand, twin teenagers Rachel and Theo Matheson discover that their neighbors are not who they appear to be and uncover an ancient secret that lurks beneath the volcanoes of Auckland. Together with Mr. Jones, played by the ever awesome Sam Neill and their cousin, the twins must discover their super secret Harry Potter powers to save all of eternity. Exciting, yes?

"My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done" Trailer

Directed by the ever badass Werner Herzog and produced by the befuddling David Lynch, "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done" looks like it is going to be either a great thriller in the vein of "Fracture" or a horrible, no good, mess.

So far it has three good things going for it: Herzog and Lynch (which sounds like the name of a credible law firm) Michael Shannon, the dude plays a phenomenal crazy person; and every Oscar nominee for best actor or actress from the past two years.

Plug it up, it's Will Arnett as Carrie

Ready your tampons, because it's about to get weird in here. The people from MSN's Cinemash have maybe reached the limits of weird with their new video featuring Will Arnett and Xavier: Renegade Angel from Adult Swim in their version of "Carrie."

As if "Carrie" wasn't an uncomfortable enough film to sit through, they have added cross-dressing and an inarticulate animated character, which will, upon viewing, be an obvious upgrade. Although there is no John Travolta getting a blowjob, the fashion is still in keeping with the original film and the death scenes are. . . electrifying.

French Thriller "Vertige"

If you are like me, you can't wait for the next French horror film or anything equivalent. Well, wait no longer, because "Vertige," which translates to "High Lane," looks like another scenic horror film that will hold the tension high.

"The Fourth Kind" trailer

Joey, you can keep your angels and demons, because aliens will always creep me out even more. And, thanks to "The Fourth Kind" trailer, you can now add owls to my list of creep outs.
