Horror fans got a one week reprieve from shelling out dough at the box office this week. That is unless you live near one of the 11 theaters that screened the Ryan Reynolds Iraq War flick "Buried," which Lionsgate rolled out to a select number of theaters on Friday. The advance word is that a full release is possible in a couple of weeks. Now, with all due warnings about ridiculously small sample size out of the way, let's look at some precedence for how things might play out for "Buried."

A new super hot super spooky poster for the upcoming Ryan Reynolds flick "Buried" has been released. Most of the quotes are cut off in the poster but I assume somewhere in there is "Please bring back Two guys, a girl and a Pizza Place"

The screenwriters behind "Ed Wood" have signed on to write the upcoming Tim Burton stop motion animated "The Adams Family" film. I was pretty excited about this and then I saw they also wrote "Problem Child 2" and "Agent Cody Banks". After that I got super excited!

"Hellraiser: Revelations" is confirmed to start filming next month and will in fact not be a remake of the original classic, which is apparently still on the table. This one will be a small budget continuation of the Hellraiser franchise and will most likely go direct to video. Small budget meaning they can only afford four nails for Pinhead's face. Hey, time are tough for everyone.

Emily Montague from "Melrose Place" has been added to the cast of the upcoming "Fright Night" remake. Don't get too excited though, she'll apparently play a victim of our head vamp so I'm guessing her screen time will total about 5 minutes. I have no idea why you would have been excited anyway... you watch "Melrose Place"?

After making some buzz at the recent Sundance Film Festival, the Ryan Reynolds claustrophobic thriller "Buried" was picked up by Lionsgate. In order to punch things up a bit, director Rodrigo Cortes has decided to shoot some additional footage to beef up the movie's external scenes before the planned limited theatrical release on September 4th.

If your non-horror interests include some good old fashioned sports drama like in the hit series "Friday Night Lights", your two worlds are about to collide in director Doug Sakmann's zombie fueled football feature "Play Dead". A football team resurrected to play one final game against their arch rivals who murdered them all? Sounds like a win!

Having been booted from the director's chair on the upcoming "Saw VII 3D", director David Hackyl wasn't sure what he was going to do next. That is, until he signed on for the big screen adaptation of Vince Churchill's "The Butcher Bride". Don't worry David, a Carrie-esque ghost story sounds more entertaining than "Saw VII 3D" any ways!

Ryan Reynolds is coming back to horror once again as he's now signed on for Universal Pictures "R.I.P.D", the adaptation of Dark Horse Comics "Rest In Peace Department". Reynolds will be playing office Rick Cruz who recently died and as a result, has been transferred to the departments undead division. Also, he has killer abs... get it?

You know who we don't have enough news on anymore? Clint Howard. Thankfully, I can remedy that today! Take a look at Clint as Joseph Mengele in Uwe Boll's "Blood Rayne III: The Third Reich". It's up to Clint to figure out how to turn Hitler into a Dhampir before Natassia Malthe kicks his arse!

Classic horror mag "Famous Monsters of Filmland" is being brought back to life by IDW and the new cover has been revealed! Known for decades for its in-depth articles on monsters and make up extravaganzas, the return of this classic is pretty exciting! The magazine will re-launch at the Famous Monsters of Filmland convention in Indianapolis, IN July 9-11.

Lionsgate has announced that the upcoming Ryan Reynolds thriller "Buried" will hit North American theaters on September 24th. Seeing how they'll stretch this very thin premise into a feature-length film will be interesting if nothing else

Does anybody really watch these Suicide Girls DVDs? If so, I guess you're in the luck. Two new discs featuring a bevy of these horror-tinged beauties will hit retail shelves on March 16th. Make sure your insurance policy covers Carpal Tunnel Syndrome beforehand.

The Sundance Film Festival has fully embraced genre film and some of the biggest and best releases of the next year are screening right now in Park City. Over the next few days we'll take a first look at the movies we'll be talking about in a few months.
