Executive Koala (REVIEW)

Koala Kacho seems to have everything going for him: he’s the vice-president of a pickle manufacturing plant, he has a beautiful girlfriend, and he’s about to seal a huge business deal with a South Korean kimchi company. Things couldn't get much better for a giant suit-and-tie-wearing koala right? Only he has one problem: sometimes he blacks out at night and then the women in his life end up dead.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 23rd, 2010

John Landis has hit the director chair again, this time directing Andy Serkis and Simon Pegg in a new horror comedy entitled "Burke & Hare". With talent like that involved, how can you not be curious?

Remember Melissa Joan Hart? She's coming to the big screen for a taste of genre stardom, though not in the form of a cutesy witch. Instead, she'll be starring in the gruesome thriller "Nine Dead" alongside John Terry and John C. Victor.

There are rumblings about that anime fans favorite dhampir 'D' may be returning soon. Director Hideyuki Kikuchi has announced plans to bring "Vampire Hunter D" back once in again in both series form as well as a live action movie.

In what is sure to be only the tip of the marketing iceberg, some snapshots of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" have arrived online as well as a new one sheet giving us another look at the new Freddy.

In Real People News: 

German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt has uncovered something special; an ancient temple complex in southeastern Turkey. What makes it special? The ruins are believed to be a staggering 7,000 years older than the great pyramids and could quite possibly be the first structure ever built by mankind or the Goa'uld.

Police in Pooler, GA were called to the local Waffle House after reports of a man being beaten bloody by his ex-girlfriend with a high heeled shoe.

On this day in history: 

1996 - The "Freeway Killer" William G Bonin executed at San Quentin. For his last meal he chose two pepperoni and sausage pizzas, three coffee ice creams, and fifteen cans of Coca Cola totaling a rather unhealthy 6391 calories.

Death Note: The Last Name (REVIEW)

Last week when I reviewed the first “Death Note” movie I praised it for its willingness to toss logic out of the window and work as a pure entertainment delivery system. The movie played like an intricate cat-and-mouse mystery rewritten by a 12-year-old boy high on Pokari Sweat and Men’s Pocky, but it had such an atmosphere of goofy, breathless fun that it was easy to ignore the plot holes, one-dimensional characters and general sense of implausibility and watch it as pure escapism.

Miike Tackles Live-Action "Yatterman"

These days, it would appear that maverick Japanese director Takashi Miike's cinematic output is geared more towards the mainstream. And, really, who could blame him? The man has worked exceptionally hard to achieve the cult status he's attained, so why not put it to good use? His latest film, a live-action adaptation of the popular television series "Yatterman," appears to have been crafted in the same vein as his grossly underrated 2004 superhero comedy "Zebraman," a surprisingly effective feature that proves Miike is capable of more than just shock and awe.

Blood: The Last Vampire Trailer

Okay, so after seeing this trailer I think I finally understand the excitement behind "Blood: The Last Vampire". It comes to you from director Chris Nahon, who I see currently has a script out for a "Skate or Die" movie, which may actually make him my personal hero.

"Blood The Last Vampire" is based on the Anime film of the same name from 2000, and the story goes like this:
