The Syfy Channel has ordered up 13 episodes of the BBC hit series "Being Human". The show revolves around a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf living together as roomates.

Brad Dourif joins Vivica Fox in a new cannibalistic serial rapist thriller called "Junk Yard Dog".

"Evil Dead" is coming to theaters. Read that again. "Evil Dead" is coming back to theaters! That's right, the original movie, not a remake, is being brought back for a midnight run at select theaters across the country.

Joe Dante and Roger Corman team up for a new series available only on Netflix streaming called "Splatter". The included clip at the link looks cheese-tastic, so check it out. And uh... you know, I heard about this cool place to get Netflix if you wanted to give it a watch...

It’s been 25 years since Joe Dante directed “Gremlins” and warmed his way into our tiny little hearts. Since then he’s directed a ton of other films but nothing that really had the same impact as the 1984 critter invasion flick. Now with “The Hole”, he might just have done it again. At the very least it’s another film that’s going to be shot in 3D and should have some pretty amazing visuals.

Guillermo Del Toro discusses his inspiration for his "Strain" trilogy of vampire novels, the first of which is due to hit bookshelves on Junes 2nd.

Robert Downey JR wants to play Edgar Allen Poe in a script written by Sylvester Stallone. I know, I thought he was off drugs too, this is so sad. (JOKE, people)

So, we decided the other day that this new Filmax flick "Paintball" has a cool trailer, but was really playing the paintball schtick up way too much for me to take it seriously. As you can see though, they've really kept it classy with the poster. UGH.

Adam Green is hoping he'll get to shoot "Hatchet 2" next winter. Nothing is set in stone yet, but the idea and the interest is there, now it's just all about the pieces coming together. I for one would definitely watch if Green were to turn out another hilarious slasher in this series.

Speaking of interesting, if not totally amazing slasher films, it turns out that there's a Tobe Hooper-less sequel to his "Toolbox Murders" remake currently in the works. This one promises to "rise far above the last Toolbox". Guess we'll see.

Joe Dante won't ever write or direct a "Gremlins 3", although he does see it happening at some point in the future (just without him, apparently). He also says he thinks the guys who made that infamous "fan film" should be responsible for another sequel, and that he's currently working on two spectacular Blurays of the original films.
