Naomi Harris, a relatively unknown actress who appeared in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films is being considered for a female in lead in Ron Howard's "Dark Tower" trilogy. Though you may not know the actress, the important thing to take away here is...they're finally casting the "Dark Tower" movies!

The trailer for John Carpenter's latest film "The Ward" is now onine! Amber Heard, John Carpenter and a ghost filled nut house? All signs point to something special.

A lot of movies get added to Netflix's Instant Stream every week. Luckily for you, I'm here to dig through what's new and highlight new releases that may be of interest to BGH readers. Halloween is right around the corner and Netflix is really ramping up the horror releases. Tons of stuff this week. And without further adieu, joining the ranks of the Instant Stream this week are:

Amityville II: The Possession (1982)
At the risk of losing some nerd-cred, I have to come clean: the only Amityville movie I've ever seen was "Part 3D". Checking this one out.

I keep waiting for the punch line here but I'm starting to think there isn't one. In fact Christopher Lee's metal album, yeah I said metal album, based on the story of King Charlemagne is kind of catchy, maybe even good. Yup you read right, Mr. Dracula has a metal album coming out and he's sporting a loin cloth on the album cover. Alright the second part is a lie. If you want to check some of his songs out, and trust me you do, you can hop over to the official MySpace page and have a listen.

If you haven't guessed by now, I love a horror movie with atmosphere. When a movie can suck you in and feel unique, that's the sign of a great movie. Luckily for me, throughout the 50's, 60's and 70's, Hammer Studios managed to put out a slew of horror films that fit this bill perfectly. Many of you may be familiar with these films but many, especially here in the States, may not.

Just announced yesterday, Christopher Lee will be returning to Hammer Studios to star along side Hillary Swank and Jeffery Dean Morgan in The Resident.

When a young doctor suspects she may not be alone in her new Brooklyn loft, she learns that her landlord has formed a frightening obsession with her.

Who's with me in hoping Lee is the creepy landlord? I mean, it only makes sense, right?
