Am I the only one who goes into a fit of rage anytime he sees Eddie Van Halen on TV? Sure David Lee Roth is more annoying but Eddie... Eddie's always got that stupid smug look on his face. Oh I hate those tiny little chicklet teeth he flashes.

If you're waiting for Shawn Levy's new "Frankenstein" movie then I've got some bad news for you. The good people at Fox have decided to pass on the project based on the fact that the budget was looking to be upwards of $80 million. This sounds like a giant mistake to me. When you get the guy who made "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" you give him any amount he wants and just watch the magic unfold.

"The Thing" remake's Mary Elizabeth Winstead looks to be teaming up with "The Last Exorcism" director Daniel Stamm for a new film called "The Darkness". Winstead will play a girl babysitting her tutor's two children in a large mansion that looks to be haunted. Do you think they'll play that "I Believe In a Thing Called Love" Song during the opening credits? I hope so, that tune is always fun.

Glenn Close, Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Felton (or as I like to call them the dream team) are all confirmed for roles in Therese Raquin, a new film about a wife who murders her sickly husband with her lover so they can be together. Oh but the husband comes back to haunt them. Just like I'd do if I ever get murdered by my wife. You reading this, honey!? I'll get you!

If you liked "The Woman in Black", and I did, then you might be giddy to find out that hammer Films has picked up the rights to "Gaslight" a new Jack the Ripper film which is said to be a mix of "From Hell" and "Silence Of the Lambs". You liked both of those movies didn't you? Or at least 1? That's 50%! I can confirm you'll love 50% of this movie.

In Real People News: 

Well this is just sad. A British swingers club may be forced to shut down due to complaints from neighbors that the parties are too loud. Lets all pray that these deviants can come to some sort of agreement. Maybe use ball gags after 9pm? That should help keep things quite.

Ever wonder if those guys at the airport even actually pay attention to what you put in the little bin to be scanned? Wonder no more. They do. Just ask this guy from Chicago who tried to get 5 bags of weed through.

I don't want to say I'm some kind of god that can see into the future but here's the trailer for "Red Riding Hood" and as I predicted it looks like a pile of turds. Of course the words "From the director of 'Twilight'" attached to it might be considered a giveaway but if you want to call me the Nostradamus of crappy movies I'm not going to argue.

Here's a new one sheet for the long awaited indie film "Job". The story revolves around a group of priests who are hiding a secret only to be terrorized by "the Dark Christ". I assume that means the devil. It's got to be, right? Oh god have I stumbled upon some sort of weird racist propaganda movie?

Daniel Stamm, the guy who directed "The Last Exorcism", has been confirmed to be taking the helm of the English remake of "Martyrs". In other news, I'm finally going to see "Martyrs"! Once they make an English language version of it that is.

And I couldn't go a full week without some Nic Cage in my life. His new film "Drive Angry" in which he... well he drives a car real angry like, has been slapped with an R rating. When's the last time Mr. Cage was in an R rated movie? Was it that one where he tried to drink himself to death? I hope he tries to drink himself to death while driving in this one. Next level!

In Real People News: 

This seems to happen all the time but it doesn't make it any less funny. Some young prankster tampered with a highway sign in Arizona and drivers were warned of "Caution Zombies ahead!". Ya know some time there really are going to be zombies ahead and no one is going to believe it. Jerk.

Nice, Paris, real original. Apparently an outbreak of bed bugs is threatening the tourism industry of the cheese loving city and people are losing their berets over the whole thing. We've been doing this for months. Try something original.

There's a new poster floating around from the upcoming "Let Me In" flick and good news, it's French and it's got just the right amount of blood in it! For those of you French speaking readers keeping track at home "Let me In" is Le Remake of the Swedish film Le "Let the Right One In" that I thought was Le Crap!

If you were in Vegas recently and weren't in a drug induced cloud of rage then you might of scored a peak at what David Tennant is going to look like as Peter Vincent in the upcoming "Fright Night" remake. Then again if you were in Vegas and were spending your time looking for horror movie posters then I don't think you deserve to be reading my news. I bid you good day sir... Good day sir!

Maybe I'm out of touch good people at Spike but I've been reading your nominees for the Ultimate Scream category for your 2010 Scream Awards and I'm a bit confused as to why something like "Avatar" is nominated. Does Ultimate Scream mean I should be screaming at my computer while reading your stupid ass nominee list? Cause ya got me!

Want to experience a producer and a director give each other high fives via the written word? You're in luck then! Eli Roth and Daniel Stamm recently sat down with Empire Magazine to discuss "The Last Exorcism", mashed potatoes and fashion. Spoiler! Eli Roth is a charming SOB.

In Real People News: 

Tasers are so hot right now! Just yesterday a student at Westlake Middle School in North Carolina felt the tasers wrath after she refused to stop choking a smaller boy in her school. If I had tased every girl who made me feel like crap in middle school 85% off the yearbook photos would of featured girls with smoldering hair.

On this day in history: 

1666 - The Great Fire of London broke out. It destroyed nearly 400 acres, including some 13,000 houses and the old St. Paul's Cathedral.

"Piranha 3D" set a new precedent, so why not copy it? That's exactly what "Shark Night 3D" plans to do while tempting us with these bikini shots of Sarah Paxton and Katherine McPhee. And James Cameron thought "Piranha" was dumb.

Daniel Stamm saw box office success with "The Last Exorcism" this past weekend and he's already looking ahead to future projects. While not yet certain, the director has said that his next film may be "Twelve Strangers", a supernatural thriller. This film is slated to be the second entry in the M. Night Shyamalan "Night Chronicles" trilogy.

There has been some confusion on the announcement of Dimension revealing their plans for a ninth "Hellraiser" film, planned for direct to video release instead of the rumored remake of the original film. Finally revealing their plan, the studio cited the ticking clock on their option to the franchise forcing them to move ahead on "Hellraiser: Revelations" since concrete plans for the remake were no where near coming to fruition.

In Real People News: 

A Dallas man sat in court to receive his sentence for an outstanding assault charge. When the judge announced that he would receive 40 years in prison, the 47 year old man pulled a razor blade from his pocket and slit his own throat. Thwarted by those around him, the man was removed from the courtroom with bandages wrapped around his neck with a scheduled pit stop at the ER on his way to prison.

On this day in history:
