More Machete? Great. Less Jessica Alba? Not so sure...

When the BGH Crew began discussing its nominations for its list of the top ten horror films of the year, one thing became rather obvious. While it's been a year filled with lots of quality horror films -- indeed, some might even say risky films -- there wasn't that one movie that broke away from the crowd to truly establish itself as the best.

This week we debate the finer points of how to best pronounce "Machete", and the possible attractiveness of a certain fiery Latina.

A ridiculous amount of clips from "Machete" have found their way online and they're pretty much what you would expect. Lots of blood, lots of strippers and some serious bad acting. I mean all three of those things in the best way possible. Check them out below and look for "Machete" this Friday in theaters.

I do not have any freakin clue what "Machete" is about but I'm not sure that really matters. From what I can tell Danny Trejo plays a guy who is "double crossed" and then starts cutting people up. Then Cheech Marin, who plays a priest, mind you, decides he wants to help so he blows up some cars. Then Jessica Alba comes out and does some really bad acting. Then Lindsay Lohan dresses up like a nun and shoots people in the face. Oh and Steven Seagal and Don Johnson are there too. I'm sure I'm forgetting something but it doesn't really matter.

The 3-D craze has donned its leather jacket and pointed its motorcycle towards the ramp as Paramount Pictures has announced plans to make a new "Ring" movie, this time in 3-D. David Loucka has already been tapped to pen the script in what Paramount hopes is a reinvention of the franchise.

"Scream" scribe Kevin Williamson put to rest the rumors that Jamie Kennedy will be returning for "Scream IV". "We're not that universe where you can bring people back from the dead. That would be just a cheat." Good to see that there's still some integrity in Hollywood!

While not really news in and of its self, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this sweet "Nightmare on Elm Street" popcorn bucket when you head out to catch the remake this weekend!

In a recent press junket for his latest feature "Robin Hood", director Ridley Scott let slip that the both of the upcoming "Alien" prequels will be released in 3D. If you're paying attention, you'll notice that I used the word 'both'. Scott also let it be known that he is planning on two prequels for the franchise.

"Machete" is no longer the only feature to spawn from the fake trailers shown in 2007's "Grindhouse". The next trailer to be stretched to full length will be "Hobo With a Shotgun" starring none other that Rutger Hauer.

This just in from the odd marketing department, Bloody Disgusting will be hosting the world premiere of Andrew Howard's "Pig" on their website tonight at 6pm PST. In an effort to encourage everyone to download, burn and pass the film around to their friends, the film makers have made a catchy retro DVD cover for you to print out and use as well.

Been waiting to chop into "Machete"? Good news for you then. The official release date for the Robert Rodriguez directed and Danny Trejo starring grindhouse throwback "Machete" has been set for September 3rd, 2010.

Interesting news for horror comics fans as DC announces an "X-Files" and "30 Days of Night" cross over event. As nice as the feral acting vamps were in the far north, I still don't think they stand a chance against the likes of Mulder and Scully!

Want to kick off your Monday with some exciting rumors? How about the rumblings that there may be a 3-D "Gremlins" in our future?

A bidding war broke out over Robert Rodirguez directed "Machete" over the weekend with 20th Century Fox winning the battle... in the process, they've also locked up the rights to Rodriguez's future work.

New images from the upcoming "Piranha 3-D" have shown up online and they're suitably gruesome. Just a fair warning, mangled mammaries ahead!

Now that "Legion" has hit theaters, director Scott Stewart sits down to talk about his next Paul Bettany starring movie, "Priest". Let's hope it's more interesting than his last one.
