Casey and Charile are joined once again by Brad Anderson, to take on the new thriller "Grand Piano" starring John Cusack and Elijah Wood. 

As you may have noticed, I decided to take the weekend off!  Weekends are glorious things, a pair of days where one doesn't have to worry about pesky things such as day jobs or going to bed at reasonable hours.  For many of us, I'm sure that the weekends are a time in which we cram as many movies in as we can.  Armed with a massive collection of DVD, Bluray and streaming options galore, it's easy to find something to watch in a weekend cram session.  In fact, for many of us, the options are so widespread, the simple act of choosing a movie to watch becomes paralyzing.

It's time for Episode 13 of the Instomatic!  This week, Casey and Charlie are joined by Charlie's former podcasting partner, Brad Anderson from Movie Fan House!  It gets a little awkward when Charlier's former and current meet up. 

The Instomatic returns! This episode, Jeremy B joins Charlie and Casey for a look at Apocalypse Now

"Paranormal Activity" seemed to spawn a dozen copycats almost overnight with its massive success in 2009. The low budget, haunted house, easy to make found footage format was easily replicable for amateurs and studios alike. "Atrocious" appears at first glance to be a Spanish stylization of the film until its abrupt final twists rip off "The Shining" with such audacity its hard to fathom.

I use to love "Mr. Show" but for some reason over the years I have really grown to hate David Cross. Don't ask me why. But his better half from the show, Bob Odenkirk, I still love. He's adorable. And he's been cast as the Devil in the new R rated stop motion flick "Hell and Back". The animated romp revolves around a group of friends who travel into the underworld to save their friend from eternal damnation. Ya know. For the kids.

Remember the show "Terra Nova"? I do actually! Which ruins every joke I had going in my head. But for those of you who don't, it was a short lived Steven Spielberg produced show on Fax that revolved around a group of travelers who go back in time... or to a different world... or something. I don't know, there were dinosaurs. Well the show tanked but Netflix decided to take it on and continue to stream the series. Until now that is. They've decided to ax the entire thing. That was a lot of work to get to the point of this wasn't it? I hope you appreciate it.

People go gaga over Clive Barker's 1990 film "Nightbreed". I'm not here to judge... It's not my favorite. There I said it! But people are going to get moist now I'm sure because Clive has dropped the news that he is very much in talks to bring the movie to the little screen with a new series. The show will apparently be on cable but no news as of yet on who might pick it up, when it might air or what it will even be about. I'd bet it won't even happen but man let's not let that ruin our excitement.

Will someone look up my last news item on "Child’s Play"? I don't remember if i said it was on or off. Or don't, I'm not the boss of you. Either way today the news is that the remake is not only a go but so is a spin off film about Chucky’s immediate family. I have no idea what that means but I'm not too concerned because the whole thing will be scrapped next week. Or maybe not. I'm a glass half full kind of guy.

"Automaton Transfusion" director Steven C. Miller talks about his entry for the new "After Dark Originals" line, "Scream of the Banshee". Starring Lauren Holly, the film is described as an old school monster movie and hopes to be the anchor to the new addition to the "After Dark 8 Films to Die For" family.

I'm sure you've been waiting for the return of the lesser known Duff sister Haley to the big screen. Worry no more as Haley Duff is in talks to star in the upcoming thriller "Cousin Sarah", a story of somebody's weird cousin moving to town where unexplained events start happening. Here's hoping her already signed co-star Jason Mewes lands the title roll of 'Cousin Sarah'.

The official plot details for Kevin Smith's upcoming "Red State" have appeared online and it looks passable! Centered around a Fred Phelps like evangelist, the movie hopes to show a new kind of 'extreme fundamentalism'.

Are you a big fan of Netflix and their handy streaming video service? Get ready to like it even more as the company has struck a deal with Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM Studios. Quite simply, there's going to be even more fun stuff to watch while wasting time at work!

If you were looking for another reason to sign up for Netflix other then helping Schnaars keep up with his faberge egg collection now you have one. Netflix recently announced that it would be collaborating with horror legend Roger Corman on a three part web series that is scheduled to go live just in time for Halloween.
