A new poster for the little talked about film “Carriers” has hit the intertubes. The movie stars Chris Pine ("Star Trek"), Emily VanCamp, Piper Perabo and a bunch of others you’ll probably recognize as a small band of travelers who are trying to find the last safe place in America after a viral pandemic breaks out and starts killing everyone. Along the way they’re faced with the task of having to battle off those who are already infected and the moral dilemma of having to leave behind those from their group with the disease.

The news that Werner Herzog was going to reboot "Bad Lieutenant" with Nic Cage in the title role was greeted by a massive "WTF?" from cinemaphiles. Then, we were treated to an escalating feud between Herzog and original "Bad Lietenant" director Abel Ferrara in which Herzog claimed to have never seen the movie he was remaking and to have never heard of Ferrara, which prompted Ferrara to invite Herzog to "die in hell" and said that the producer of the film "sucks cock in hell". Whew.

Not being of the literary sort, my response to anything involving "Sherlock Holmes" usually begins with a yawn and ends with a nap. For that reason, I was totally disinterested in the upcoming film adaptation of the popular series. That is, of course, until I found out that it starred the man-crush power couple of Robert Downey Jr. (Holmes) and Jude Law (Watson). After that, I caught up on an apparently old story about Robert Maillet accidentally punching RDJ in the face during a fight scene.

Here's the trailer for Ti West's "House of the Devil". You may recognize West's name from his surprisingly effective Indie horror film "The Roost", or the as-yet-unreleased "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever". "House of the Devil" is the other project he's been working on, and based on the trailer it's turned out pretty damn good. It will be an official selection at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, and hopefully we'll be seeing it some time in 2009. So, check it out and leave your feedback below. The synopsis goes like this:
