Tim Burton and super hunk Johnny Depp will finally begin filming the big screen version of "Dark Shadows" this April. For those of you not familiar with the original TV show it's kind of like "Soup" but not funny, with vampires and a lot of English accents. Of course I learned all this from a TV commercial selling the entire series on DVD so I could be off.

I've yet to figure out what a producer actually does but John Carpenter is apparently set to be the executive producer on Dennison Ramalho's new film "The Hell Within". Apparently the entire movie will be shot in Brazil so I'm starting to think old John John is just looking for a vacation.

What's next up on the remake list? "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things", the 1973 zombie flick which I'm 99% sure was shot on someone's home camera. Did they have home cameras back then? I have no clue, maybe that's a really good thing for back then. What a strange and wondrous world it must of been back in the 70's.

Oh boy, who's as excited as me for the second episode of "The Walking Dead"? No one, that's the answer, no one could possibly be as excited as I am. Anyway here's a sneak peek at the second episode, don't even try to pretend that you wet yourself like I did. That's Joe's thing!

Good news if you hate 3D, "My Soul to Take" had the worst opening for a 3D movie to date, making roughly $6.9 million this past weekend. I'd love to see the breakdown of people who saw it that weren't forced to because they're on a podcast.

John Carpenter suffered a minor stroke this past Saturday at the Spooky Empire convention in Orlando. The bad ass part? He returned to the convention on Sunday to continue meetings fans. He also bit the head off of one. Alright that last part's a lie.

Producer Bryan Fuller recently dropped some info on his upcoming reboot of "The Munsters" TV series. It's being described a combo of "Modern Family" and "True Blood" which to me sounds like a bunch of vampires who are related screwing each other. Hollywood is a bunch of sickos.

If you've all being waiting for the next Indonesian flick to hit the states you can finally get some sleep because "Satan's Facebook" is coming. There's really no reason to explain what this is about, from the title alone you should be excited and if you're not you're a racist. There, I said it.

When a team of roughnecks staffing a remote Antarctic outpost come into contact with a strange alien life form that infects and mimics the appearance of its host, things begin to quickly spin out of control as no one can be sure of who has been infected and who remains clean. Led by McCready (Kurt Russell), the survivors attempt to cleanse their research station. Suspicions mount though, and between claustrophobia and the brutal elements, options begin to dwindle.

If you've been dying to find out more about John Carpenter's next flick, you're in luck! The doors are now open to the official website for "The Ward".

Paramount is wanting to jump in on the encroaching alien bandwagon coming for 2011 as Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes snatches up the rights to an untitled alien thriller from Bobby Glickert. Little is known about the project at this time other than they claim it is a cross between "Cloverfield" and "Paranormal Activity".

Darren Aronofsky's proposed "Robocop" remake appears to be the first project to be thrown out as MGM prepares for impending doom with their $3.7 billion debt.

In an odd twist, moody singer Nick Cave has been brought in to pen a remake of "The Crow". At least cave has a firm grasp on that whole 'dark and brooding' atmosphere that "The Crow" loves so much.

Milla Jovovich continues to build her scream queen portfolio as director David R. Ellis announces that she will be starring in his upcoming horror film "Bad Luck".

John Carpenter fans, start getting excited. The director has announced his plans to return to vampire territory with his next project, "Fangland" based on the novel by John Marks.

Doug Jones and Reggie Bannister are now all set to slip into their most natural roles ever as R-Squarded films pick up "Carnies" for distribution . The company plans a limited theatrical release and a full scale DVD release for this little convention breaker that sets the carnies facing an unknown evil!

IFC has picked up the North American distribution rights to Tom Six's twisted horror/thriller "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)." Is it weird that I really want to see this one? Probably.

Fans of the After Dark Horrorfest will be pleased to hear that Chris Moore's upcoming horror/thriller "Kill Theory" is the latest film to be added to the lineup. Call me crazy, but this year's selection seems a little stronger.

Legendary filmmaker and horror icon John Carpenter sits down to discuss his latest genre offering "The Ward." The interview is lengthy, so make sure you've got plenty of time on your hands.
