the last witch hunter

Horror Headlines: Thursday March 18th, 2010

I can hear the collective groan gathering on the horizon, but I'm going to report on this, anyway. "The Grudge: White Ghost" and "The Grudge: Black Ghost", the latest installments in the long-running series, is headed to Region 2 DVD on April 19th. Who knows? It might be good. I'm just kidding.

Almost as soon as the movie was over, genre-friendly distributor Magnet scooped up North American rights to Gareth Edwards' buzz-heavy creature feature "Monsters". Here's hoping the flick receives a healthy theatrical release later this year.

Rumor has it that there's a strong possibility that Frank De Felitta's made-for-TV chiller "Dark Night of the Scarecrow" is headed for DVD. VCI Entertainment is behind the project. If you haven't had a chance the see the movie yet, you're definitely in for a treat. Creepy!

If you're excited about Timur Bekmambetov's "The Last Witch Hunter", you'll be pleased to learn that a plot synopsis has finally hit the web. Spoilers abound, so tread carefully. Very, very carefully.

Not content with just movies and now TV, Rob Zombie is returning to the world of comics with "What Ever Happened to Baron Von Shock" from Image Comics. The first reader to locate the drawn Sheri Moon Zombie cameo in the book wins a cookie!... and a boner.

Summit Entertainment is preparing for new franchise hopes with its newly acquired script "The Last Witch Hunter" written by Cory Goodman. So far, Timur Bekmambetov is definitely producing the film and may direct as well. Despite who's on board, there is no way this movie can stack up next to Nic Cage's hair in "Season of the Witch".

"True Blood" fans rejoice; you do not have to wait much longer to sink your teeth into Sookie Stackhouse. HBO has announced that the hit series will return on Sunday June 13th.

Did the CIA secretly douse NYC Subway commuters with LSD in 1950? I don't know, but this article on H.P. Arabellis book on CIA Cold War era weapons testing makes a fascinating read regardless.

It's always good to have goals in life. In some cases though, like Donna Simpson's goal of becoming the fattest woman in the world, these goals really need to be re-thought.
