dark country

It seems like these days you can’t spit without hitting a horror film with Ron Perlman in it. Trust me I tried last night and as a result I am not longer allowed in the Fairview New Jersey Blockbuster. But on top of “Dark Country” being another Perlman flick it also stars and was directed by genre vet Thomas Jane (“The Mist” and “Dreamcatcher”).

A couple en route from Las Vegas are forced to deal with a body out in the desert making their honeymoon one hellish ride.

Let me see if I have this straight. Twitch Film's April Fool's story was about a Special Edition of "Mimic"? Aren't April Fool's pranks supposed to be funny? Or you know, at least interesting?

IFC has picked up the rights to Laurel K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter" series for a television show. Think "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" meets "True Blood", only with worse writing. Try wrapping your head around that one for a while.

Some pics from Thomas Jane's "Dark Country", a film in which he is serving as both writer and director. The story concerns "a couple en route from Las Vegas that are forced to deal with a body out in the desert, making their honeymoon one hellish ride". Tom Jane being the nerd-friendly guy that he is, I've got high hopes for this project. Of course, it doesn't hurt that he's referring to it as a "3D Noir Supernatural Thriller". Daddy like.
