I try to use my hatefire to exact revenge on those who've wronged me while playing "Darkman" for the NES.  I am not very successful.

Some directors make low-budget horror films because they love the excitement, the transgression, and the lack of boundaries that are inherent in working with such an unregulated arena; some directors make low-budget features in the hope of creating a calling card for their skill and work their way up into big-budget, mainstream filmmaking. And there are those rare occasions when someone works in low-budget horror, gains the notoriety and mainstream success, and comes back to low-budget horror simply because they still love it. Sam Raimi is one of those rare occasions.

Did you guys hear they remade The Evil Dead?

At a certain point while watching "Evil Dead" I thought to myself that this might just be the goriest film I have ever seen in theaters. That's a caveat worth noting. I would expect that most people visiting this site regularly have absolutely seen gorier films, but I can confidently say that there are things in "Evil Dead" that your average movie-goer has never before seen on a big screen. It's this ability to mimic, and at times honor the splatter-house roots of the original "Evil Dead" that makes this remake such a success.

What a strange, confusing, and occasionally wonderful movie this was...

I had completely forgotten that there is a "Poltergeist" remake in the works but there is and Sam Raimi is producing the crap out of it with his Ghost House company. But who will direct!? Well according to the film's writer, David Lindsay-Abaire, Raimi will take on that role also and I for one believe him. He's got a freakin Pulitzer for F sake. Yuu going to call him a liar?

Want to see Wes Craven's "Scream" on the big screen this Halloween season? Me either but that jackass sitting across from you on the bus probably wants to so it's going to be there starting next week in selected theaters across this great nation. Just look at that guy sitting there, eating those Triscuits. God I want to punch him in the face.

I've never read a Dean Koontz book but his last name always makes me giggle like a school girl. And now I have absolutely no reason to read his book "Frankenstein Will Not Die" because the folks over at TNT are looking to turn it into a TV show. The show will be set in New Orleans and follow the famous doctor and his monster 200 years after it was created. See, if you wait long enough all written words will be turned into moving pictures.

Good news, Brian De Palma has confirmed that he is ok with Kimberly Peirce and her remake of the classic film "Carrie". I had always assumed all these people making remakes went to the original writers, directors and actors to get their approval before they even got started. Who knew.

Between the pic above and the description of the trailer footage shown at the New York Comic Con this weekend, I might actually be excited for the "Evil Dead" remake currently in the works. I know, it's a scary and confusing world out there. Should we hold each other now?

Learn the disturbing secret we discovered about Andy...

"The Possession" is an exorcism film in the vein of the grandaddy of them all, "The Exorcist", one that proudly wears its 70's roots on its sleeve. Helmed by "Nightwatch" (1997) director Ole Bornedal, "The Possession" stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a single father, doing his best to deal with his career as a basketball coach, while trying to maintain a relationship with his two young daughters, whom he has custody of on the weekends. This task is made harder by his relationship with his wife, whom was clearly the one who ended things.
