Rob Zombie's temporarily titled "H2" just wrapped filming, and they've released the first official still of Michael Myers with his mask on. As we reported a few days back, word is that Myers will remain maskless for up to 70% of the film, with Tyler Main's homeless man-beard filling in. When he is masked, here's what he'll look like, apparently covered in blood from the gunshot he received from Laurie Strode at the end of "Halloween". "H2" lands in theaters Labor Day weekend.

"The Cell 2" hits DVD and Blu-Ray June 16th, and the artwork's at the link. You know, in case you thought there were unanswered questions from the original.

There's a new "Uncle Coffins" commercial up at the "H2" Myspace, and still nothing from Danielle Harris. The wait continues...

Hot chick Erica Leerhsen is in "The Message", which has a trailer at the link. Leerhsen's prevous credits include "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (2003) and "Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows".

I'm not really sure that I'm anticipating Park Chan Wook's "Thirst" as much as everyone else is, but Twitch calls this trailer "brilliant", so I guess I'm just going to roll with it. Check it at the link.

Liam Neeson and Ralph Feinnes will star in the "Clash of the Titans" remake currently in development over at Warner Bro's. That may be more fancy Britishness than one set is capable of handling.

Michael Myers spends nearly 70% of the new "Halloween" film without his mask on? Wonderful, just when you thought Zombie had run out of ways to rape your favorite childhood horror franchise. That guy's pretty inventive, isn't he?

According to the "H2" Myspace we should be seeing a trailer for the film soon, and other sites are reporting that the teaser will be attached to "Crank 2". Which would be great, because I can only report on so many behind the scenes videos or unrelated promos. I have to take a shower after each one to wash the feeling of being Rob Zombie's whore off... and that takes up a lot of time that I just don't have these days.

The Weinstein's have lost the rights to "Sin City 2". The newly freed up film is expected to be financed by a "private equity group", with some type of announcement coming soon. What we do know is that Robert Rodriguez's production company will still be producing, and they'll probably cast another stripper who won't take her clothes off. Joy.

Apparently I had forgotten the announcement that "Train" actually wasn't a remake of "Terror Train", and that an actual remake of that Jamie Lee Curtis classic slasher was in the works. Well, that did actually happen, and word comes now that cameras are about to roll fairly soon on the real "Terror Train" remake, this one NOT starring Thora Birch. Got all that? Good, because it was really important.

The poster for Richard Kelly's "The Box" (link fixed) features a big, terrifying picture of... Cameron Diaz's face. Yikes.

The remake of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" is on hold while they see how "The Wolfman" remake does. The creature design is already done, and at this point they're just waiting for the go-ahead from the studio.

Radha Mitchell seems genuinely upset in this interview that although a sequel to "Silent Hill 2" is in development, the original director probably won't return. Which leads me to believe she never actually saw the original film, which was a steaming pile of the highest order.

If you're interested, there's two new "H2" videos floating around this morning. You know, in case you really wanted to hear an interview with a 19 year old girl about a sequel to a remake to a film that she had probably never seen or heard of before signing on to star in it. Who wouldn't want to do that?

Fangoria is holding a massive movie prop auction that you can actually watch and participate in online. Fancy that!

This poster is being passed off as the "Official One-Sheet" for Rob Zombie's "H2", but word from STYD is that this is just one of dozens of contenders for the final poster. This is apparently the way studios normally work, commissioning a design company to come up with lots of options.

Here's an image of Michael Myers walking through Haddonfield. It's sort of mysterioso I guess, but Zombie is seriously testing my ability to post stuff about his "Halloween" sequel every single day. Will it let up after they're done shooting in Georgia? Let's hope so, because I'm about ready to go cold turkey on "H2" news.

MTV claims that the comic book XXXombies is coming to the big screen. What is XXXombies about you might ask? Why, zombies fighting porn stars, what else?

Bill Hader will star in Judd Apatow's slasher flick "House of Joel". Somehow I love all three of those things, but when you put them together in once sentence it makes me supremely uncomfortable. Go figure.

First images from the second season of "True Blood" on HBO. Even though every one of our commenters tells me it sucked and they stopped watching, it appears that there are still some people out there interested in this show. I just can't seem to find them.
