Teri Polo, of "Meet the Parents" fame, has signed on to star in Joe Dante's "Hole", to play the mother of a 14 year old boy who discovers a bottomless hole in their basement. I think if I were him I'd be more horrified at the fact that my mother had one of the hottest Playboy shoots ever. Also of note, anyone ever read "House of Leaves"? Actually a semi-similar concept to this. Fantastic book btw, in case you haven't read it.

"Grace" is a film starring Jordan Ladd, that concerns a mother who loses a child and decides to carry it full term, only to have it mysteriously come back to life after birth with a thirst for blood. Sounds... nasty. Some words from the screenwriter and pics can be found at the link.

In a not very surprising move, Showtime has extended it's hit show "Dexter" for another 2 seasons. The Season 3 premiere, which happened a few weeks back, was the biggest ratings winner in Showtime's history. The previous high? The season 2 premiere. The show stars Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz and Jennifer Carpenter and follows blood spatter expert Dexter, who also happens to be a psychopathic vigilante serial killer.

I was just thinking about the French animated film "Fear(s) of the Dark" yesterday, wondering when I'd hear the next piece of news on it. Well, here's a new clip to feast your eyes on. According to the link, "Fear(s)" is actually in a limited theatrical release in the US as we speak. Anyone see it playing near them?

Here's a clip from the "Friday the 13th" remake, played at last night's Spike Scream Awards. This is literally the first thing I've seen from the Friday redux... I have to know what you guys think, yay or nay? I'm not sure how I feel about the original music being used. Didn't seem to jive very well with the super slick cinematography. Leave your thoughts in the comments.

In Real People News: 

Miss Louisiana arrested for a good old fashioned "dine and dash". What, you mean someone with a prestigious a title as hers isn't afforded free meals at Denny's? What kind of crown is that anyways?

I have to admit, this supposed footage of a UFO taken in Turkey over the summer is pretty fascinating. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a good alien sighting.

On this day in history: 

1934: Notorious bank robber Pretty Boy Floyd dies of multiple gunshot wounds in the back, after a shootout with the FBI at the Conkle Farm in East Liverpool, Ohio.
