We review the biggest practical joke of the Halloween season...

Wallace Langham always seems sassy to me so that makes him a perfect fit to play the roll of Saul Bass in the upcoming film "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho.'" I'm not going to tell you what the movie is about because that title might be the most direct thing I've ever read. I also have no idea with Saul Bass was "sassy" in real life but I like to think he was.

Let me get this on paper right now. If the end of the world comes and it looks like I might make it out alive but I'll have to live with Seth Rogan, I want you to just shoot me right in the face. Don't ask me if I really mean it, don't even think about it. Just pull the trigger. Even if Aziz Ansari is there, who's just been added to the cast of "The Apocalypse", an end of the world comedy which stars Ro-Gan. See how I made that happen? But seriously. Shoot me.

Oren Peli and Jason Blum, the producers behind "Paranormal Activity" are currently working on an untitled "Latino-themed" supernatural thriller. Now before we go any further let me point out that my wife is Puerto Rican so nothing I say can be considered racist.The story will focus on a pack of haunted tacos that terrorize a family of migrant workers. They must use the power of salsa to expel the demons and save their home/hut. I'm kidding of course, no details on the film have been released.

"Ender’s Game", the much anticipated adaptation of Orson Scott Card's beloved science fiction novel has had its release date officially pushed to November 1, 2013. I have no idea what the book is about but it sounds like there's tiny little fighter pilots so that's adorable.

Oren Peli, the man who masterminded the "Paranormal Activity" series, debuts an ambitious new TV show this coming Tuesday night on ABC. Looks intriguing, the big question being how long can they keep the show on the rails given the gimmicky nature of the story. Thankfully I still have a few days left to find ABC on my TV. Can't remember the last show of theirs I actually watched.

"Paranormal Activity 3" takes viewers back to see where the activity began.

After a legitimate breakout and a strong follow-up, it was safe to say that we're now stuck with "Paranormal Activity," for better or for worse. And while that type of success is usually a recipe for Hollywood studio scrimping and laziness, this series may mark one of the first instances where producers have managed to grow a series both in ambition and quality as it progresses.

Hayden Panettiere, Nikki Reed and Rebecca De Mornay are confirmed for the upcoming High School thriller "Downers Grove". I was going to make a joke about how it's ridiculous that Panettiere is playing a High School student but apparently she is only 21 so that's actually pretty young in movie school years.

What's up next for Oren "Mr. Paranormal Activity" Peli? Why a film called "Eliza Graves" that is loosely based on an Edgar Allan Poe short story. Hell yeah this is going to be awesome. The entire thing is going to be shot on helmet cams. Next level!

Speaking of! Apparently "Paranormal Activity 2" has up to 20 alternative endings to the film that will most likely make their way to the DVD and Blu-Ray releases. A couple of my favorites include the entire family hopping on the pool cleaner and riding off to safety and one where the female cast members all go out for a 3 hour pole dancing class and never bother returning to the house.

Well hello dreamy pants! Ryan Gosling is rumored to be taking the lead in the upcoming big screen adaptation of "All You Need Is Kill". I have no desire to see this but there's a 99% chance I will because my wife has made it no secret that she'd leave me in a heartbeat for this guy. To be honest I don't blame her, his eyes are like two pools you want to swim in for days.

The guys behind both "Paranormal Activity" films have plans to create a show for the small screen in the near future. The show will be called "Paranormal Activities" and will feature real ghosts doing everyday fun tasks just like us livin' folk. Alright that's a lie, but they are working on a show.

Much to my surprise "Let Me In" has received a big old R rating from the MPAA. Apparently the movie's going to feature "strong bloody horror violence, language and a brief sexual situation". Brief sexual situation? So much for being toned down.

Are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson attached to the big screen adaptation of "Breathers: A Zombie's Lament"? Sounds iffy but I've actually read the book and I feel it's important for my self esteem to report on movies that have to do with the dozen or so books I've read over the years. Me read pretty one day!

Liam Neeson is all fired up and ready to star in "The Grey". The film focuses is on a a group of pipeline workers who come in contact with a pack of wild wolves after their plane crashes in Alaska. Liam Neeson, he's what's for dinner.

LatinoReview.com has uncovered the script for Oren Peli's follow up to "Paranormal Activity", titled "Area 51". Still basking in the glow of his recent success, the studio has been trying to keep close tabs on the details for this one. So, if you don't mind spoilers... be sure to read on.

It was rumored some months past that J J Abrams would be taking on the adaptation of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series. As of today, Abrams has officially announced that he is dropping the project.

If James Gunn was the only reason you were holding out for "Scream Queens Season 2", I have bad news for you. Gunn has had to bow out of Season 2 due to scheduling conflicts. On the bright side, that means he's making another movie!

ABC has announced that it will not be renewing "Eastwick", the small screen adaptation of "Witches of Eastwick" after its 13 episode run. Don't worry, I'm sure we'll see Rebecca Romijin-Stamos-O'Connel again soon!
