Dennis Iliadis, the guy who fixed "The Last house on the Left", is in talks to direct "The Demonologists". The film will focus on a group of ghost hunters who find themselves in deep caca when they stumble upon a demon infestation. I hope they have ghost hunter uniforms, those are adorable.

The wait is almost over kids, "The Walking Dead" hits AMC on Sunday and to get you all pumped up here's 5 minutes from the first episode. Are you mildly turned on? I am. Wow I've never noticed what amazing eyes you have. What are you doing later?

"Burke And Hare" is a comedy based on a true story about two men who fall into the dangerous world of providing cadavers for medical research. Which kind of sounds like "I Sell the Dead" but according to the new one sheet this one has Simon Pegg and looks like it might not suck. So there's some differences right there.

Ridley Scott was on the crapper recently and decided that he wants Noomi Rapace from "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" to star in the "Alien" prequel. So of course it's my job to tell you about it. Take a good hard look at me kids, I'm you in ten years! Good luck sleeping tonight.

Don Mancini recently sat down to discuss the long awaited "Child's Play" remake and the short and curly of it is there's no news, but he's open to it. So that about covers it. How's your Tuesday going? Mine's pretty good. Like what you're doing with your hair.

Everyone's favorite German Uwe Boll is working on his new film "Blubberella". The film is about the world's first obese superheroine and her battles with the forces of evil. But you probably could have guessed that even if I just gave you the title and the director.

Good news everyone! "Birdemic: The Resurrection" is already in the works. The original "Birdemic" was created by James Nguyen with his own cash and has gained a cult following by hipsters and sarcastic pricks alike.

Some new images from "Paul", the Sci-Fi comedy written by Nick Frost and Simon Pegg have hit the nets and I think I might be giddy. The film is currently set for a March 18th release and stars the duo as a couple of geeks who meet a real life alien.

In Real People News: 

Remember that girl who couldn't stop hiccupping a few years back and how we all felt bad for her? Well she murdered a guy and is now in some serious trouble. I assume the murder had something to do with some weird voodoo ritual and she'll get off with a warning. Remember how adorable she was?!

Remember Melissa Joan Hart? She's coming to the big screen for a taste of genre stardom, though not in the form of a cutesy witch. Instead, she'll be starring in the gruesome thriller "Nine Dead" alongside John Terry and John C. Victor.

There are rumblings about that anime fans favorite dhampir 'D' may be returning soon. Director Hideyuki Kikuchi has announced plans to bring "Vampire Hunter D" back once in again in both series form as well as a live action movie.
