Although not a horror film, "Watchmen" gets released wide in the US today, and I'm sure a lot of our fans will be interested in seeing it. Here's hoping it turns out half as good as it looks.
April 16th, 2010. That's the date that Platinum Dunes plans to release its "Nightmare on Elm St." remake. So, now you know.
Here's the trailer for Jake West's Indie film "Dog House. West's last film was "Punpkinhead 3" for the Scifi, and before that he directed "Evil Aliens". The story of "Doghouse" concerns a group of friends who take a vacation to a small town in the UK, only to find out that all the town's females have been infected with a virus, which based on what I saw in the trailer turns them into zombies.
I think I could get into an adaptation of this "Ghosts/Aliens" book. It's literally about "two pothead friends who set out on a question to discover both ghosts and aliens". It just got picked up by Paramount Vantage, and along with a feature film version, Comedy Central will be prepping a television show based on the property.
Wes Craven describes the villain in his film "25/8". He says he's: "a figure who lives under the river, sleeps under the bridges... eats bark". And there we have it, the secret of his anger. You'd be killing people too if you had to eat bark. That's just nasty.
In Real People News:
What we have here is a classic story of man meets woman through personal ads, they make a connection, and she bites his tongue clear off. She was at least nice enough to put it in a plastic bag and hand it to police officers when they arrived. Ain't love grand?
