witchboard

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.

Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego's "Apollo 18" has been bumped more times then I can keep track of but right now it's shooting for a September 2nd lift off and today we've got a new trailer for the found footage flick. The movie is set up as real footage of a secret moon landing in 1973 shot by 2 American astronauts. Did you get the "lift off" pun? Pretty clever, huh?

"The Ganzfeld Experiment" has one of the most confusing plot descriptions I've ever tried to read and now Rumer Willis, who has one of the most confusing names I've ever read, has signed on to play in the film along with Dominic Purcell. Alright here goes. 5 college kids go away for the weekend in order to partake in a ESP experiment. During the weekend they uncover their forgotten past, dreams, and their future somehow. Then things go nuts or something. This may or may not be a big rip off of "Flatliners". I have no idea.

Mark Vadik has been confirmed to direct and upcoming and I assume straight to DVD remake of the 1986 Tawny "I can't believe I watched this whole thing and she didn't go topless" Kitaen film "Witchboard". For those of you not familiar with the original it follows a group of party goes who accidentally unleash an evil demon while playing with a Ouija board. Any Tawny Kitaen doesn't get naked in it.

If you haven't been following all the exciting news around "Hellraiser: Revelations" here's a short recap. It's a new direct to DVD "Hellraiser" movie that apparently had such an awful script that Doug Bradley (the original Pinhead) wanted nothing to do with it. Along with that the reviews for the one screening of the film have been nothing but negative. But hey good news now, it's coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 18th so you can see it for yourself. Merry half Christmas.

I might be the only one who watches "Eureka" but I don't care, Colin Ferguson is a dream boat and someday he's going to marry me. More proof of his dreaminess can be found in these news clips from "Lake Placid 3", by far the most awe inspiring clips of the entire "Lake Placid" series to date.

Remember those "Witchboard" movies from the 80's? The only reason anyone watched them was in hope that you might get to see Tawny Kitaen naked. Spoiler alert, you didn't. "Ouija Board" apparently has nothing to do with those films but word has it Pierre Morel, who directed "Taken" will also take the helm of this one. That tied in nicely, didn't it?

I'm pretty sure at this point every women in Hollywood has been rumored to be taking the lead in the "Alien" prequel and today it's Anne Hathaway. I think the producers are just getting drunk and looking at their DVD collection and randomly screaming out names. "'The Princess Diaries'! That movie changed my life, get me that girl. Oh god I just messed myself"
