If you thought the 2008 "Death Race" was a one shot deal, you were wrong! Universal Home Video has announced the direct to video sequel "Death Race: Frankenstein Lives" starring Luke Goss in drivers seat. Joining him will be the likes of Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo and Sean Bean, which makes you wonder which part of the track their careers crashed in.

"Taxi Driver" appears to be the next film slated for a modern remake but could there be actual hope for this one? Rumors were confirmed that Martin Scorecese, Lars Von-Trier and Robert DeNiro are all involved, with a strong chance of DeNiro reprising his Travis Bickle role.

Just off of the news of Neil Marshall's next epic "Centurion", the director has spoken of his plans to step into the producers chair for Ian D Fleming's "Ghosts of Slaughterford".

Ever read the synonymous trio of books written by Dean Koontz? Neither have I, but they are now slated for the feature film treatment.

A group of New York City morgue employees are caught posing corpses in bizarre and humorous poses and taking photos, as opposed to respectfully dealing with the remains.

A woman in Daytona Beach Shores, FL is arrested for trying to set fire to her neighbors condo with a Molotov Cocktail. She was upset because the neighbor was purportedly using the internet. According to the woman, computers were used to murder people on the internet and weren't allowed on the property. It was all okay though because she stated she received a presidential pardon before she pumped the gas for her cocktails. What?

Saunders Takes a Stab at "AntiChrist" Poster

The designer of movie posters for films such as "Dying Breed," "Surveillance," "Martyrs," and the short film "Spider" has created a poster for Lars Von Trier's much anticipated "AntiChrist."

Lars Von Trier: The Man Behind the Madness

I saw “The Element of Crime” when I was about 17. It was one of the first foreign films that I ever attempted to watch without parental encouragement. The experience was befuddling, boring and by the end, thoroughly captivating. I still don’t entirely understand what Lars Von Trier was going for with this watery vision of end times, but I suspect that is probably true for anyone who has seen it. In fact this may be a good way to inform the inexperienced viewer who wants to venture into the Von Trier world.

Bruce Willis to star in "Grimm", a ghost story with one of the longest synopses I've ever seen... which can be found at the link. Directed by Russel Mulcahey, who also helmed 2007's "Resident Evil: Extinction".

Lars Von Trier's controversial film "Antichrist" has been picked up by IFC films. Hot off the controversy it caused at Cannes with its graphic violence, the film will now be coming to US shores as early as this summer. No word on what type of release IFC will give the film, but they are known for non-traditional theatrical/on demand models.

New Platinum Dunes blog on their "Nightmare on Elm St." shooting. Of course they're going to be positive, but word is that Jackie Earle Haley's rendition of Krueger is just as kick-ass as most of us have anticipated. Don't get me wrong, I'm still withholding excitement, but consider my curiosity peaked.

In Real People News: 

Two seasonal workers at Yellowstone National park fired for pissing in Old Faithful. Not sure what's more intriguing about this, the fact that they didn't think there were security cameras, or that they took the safety of their penises so nonchalantly. That thing goes off while you're dangling your dong over it, and I'm pretty certain it won't be pretty.

Never cheat on a Thai woman, I'm told they're penis biters. At least that's what the internet tells me.

I'm not sure how we've had two "Montauk Monsters" wash up on Long Island shores before someone decided to mention the existence of the nearby "Plum Island Animal Disease Center". Even more perplexing, the couple who found the recent one have kept it on ice, and are having trouble finding someone to take it off their hands. Scientists love ripping shit apart to find out what it is, but no love for my boy?

On this day in history: 

1956: The Cherokee test of Operation Redwing commences over Bikini Atoll, consisting of a 3.8 megaton nuclear bomb dropped from a B-52 bomber. The bomb is successfully detonated at an altitude of 4,350 feet, but the flight crew missed their assigned target by four miles. Although it is a complete failure from a scientific standpoint, it demonstrates America's ability to deliver hydrogen bombs over long distances.

Remember how the acclaimed Swedish vampire film "Let The Right One In" was just released on DVD? Thanks to some sleuthing over at Icons of Fright, it was discovered that the subtitles have been almost criminally changed from the original English subs on the Swedish DVD. The cumulative result, as the writer puts it, could be construed as a "dumbing down" or "watering down" of the subtlety and strange dark humor of the film. At the link, an exhaustive description of the changes including screen caps to illustrate the point.

Producers speak on both remakes of "The Birds" and "Poltergeist". They seem to have a healthy respect for the originals, so I'll at least give these a shot, even if neither one really needs a reboot.

Here's a naughty still from Lars Von Trier's "Antichrist", which is about to make its debut at Cannes. The psychological horror film stars Willem Dafoe and is about a couple who retreat to a cabin in the woods following the death of their child.

Now this is more like it, if you're interested, here's 20 hi-res stills from "Blood: The Last Vampire". Japanese school girls... that is all.

In Real People News: 

People in the UK are really pissed about Google Street View ruining their privacy. If anyone's going to spy on them, it's going to be their own government, dammit!

Want some space underwear? Why yes, I do actually.

One strange side effect of the bad economy? increasing amounts of college educated, office working women are getting into the "adult" business. Can't blame them right? Strippers seem to be the only people making money right now.
