Let's get this out of the way up top, shall we? "Halloween 2" is bad. In fact, it's quite bad. I'll even go so far as to say that "Halloween 2" may be one of the most aggressively bad horror films made in the last ten years.
Looks like we finally have the answer to when Mike Doughterty's ("X2") "Trick 'r Treat" will be released, and it will not be theatrically as we had all hoped. Not that that's a big surprise, considering how long it's been on the shelf I would have been shocked if they went the theatrical route.
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.
