Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: GLEN MORGAN

Until very recently, film and television were antagonistic entities; television was the inexpensive stepchild of film, and the creators of each were unlikely to be found working in the other. It changed in 2005, when Geena Davis and Glenn Close decided to appear on television series, and the act of creators and performers crossing back and forth between the two mediums is relatively common. But in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, it was unusual that a creator could easily jump back and forth between film and television. One creator who did was Glen Morgan.

Final Destination 5 (REVIEW)

Don't look now -- Final Destination is BACK!

Now that Jigsaw has retired his creepy tricycle riding doll and both Jason and Freddy have returned to only middling success, it is high time that a new horror franchise swoops in to fill the void. As it turns out, that horror franchise may have been with us all along. With "Final Destination 5" the fine people at New Line Cinema have somehow managed to quietly -- in relative terms -- sneak a fourth sequel of the 2000 surprise hit "Final Destination" into theaters. Sneaked seems the appropriate term as it doesn't quite feel like anyone in particular was clamoring for this movie.

Poor Tony Todd, he's been needing work lately what with all his TV appearances and movies and such. Thankfully, he's going to be adding another film to his resume when he returns to the "Final Destination" franchise for the fifth installment.

Paramount has decided they need some original horror projects in their stable as they prepare the new property "School of Horrors". With the writer/director team of George Kay and Jim Field Smith already tapped, the movie is described as "Home Alone" in Hogwarts with it's plot of a young boy left in a haunted school by his parents.

Namco's busy preparing for the release of the old school re-do "Splatterhouse" and this trailer and game play clip promises that the game is going to be a bloody good time.

There's a new still from "Paranormal Activity 2" floating around out there that gives us a taste of... not much.

I woke up this morning thinking, "I sure would love to see a movie about a bunch of Nazi's in a giant take fighting a giant demon". Good thing there's movie in the works called "Panzer 88" about nazi unit in a King Tiger (Read: Big Ass Tank) running into a demonic force on the frozen Russian border!

Good news for all you hipsters our there who need to be ironic on the latest technologies. "Troll 2" is coming to Blu-Ray! So now you can show your friends how witty you are by thinking the film is great and how you paid thirty bucks to prove that point. Congrats!

"Underworld 4" has had it's release date pushed back a second time now and won't see a release till January of 2012. Disappointing I know but the good news is "Underworld 5" will hit theaters in March of 2011. Alright that's a lie, it isn't disappointing at all.

Chris Vance from "Prison Break" is the latest addition to the ever growing cast of "Dexter" season 5. I have no idea if this is good news or not. Is "Prison Break" still on? If they haven't broken out by now I'm thinking maybe they should just do the time and call it a day.

The next "Final Destination" installment has been given an annoying official title in the form of "5nal Destination". Details have slipped about the film's opening suspension bridge disaster as well, but we all stopped caring after "5nal".

Anne Rice herself has taken to talking up speculation about her own properties as she drops hints about a possible "Vampire Lestat" reboot as well as a possible "Witching Hour" film or TV series. There are little to no concrete details thus far but 'Twihards', pay attention; this is where your whole goth romance schtick got its start.

This humble hero for a day credits his years as a jeweler for giving him the skills to pull off such a feat.
