"Buffy" fans, it's time to arm your keyboards and get ready to hit the message boards. The folks at Vertigo entertainment are getting ready to relaunch "Buffy" once again. The folks at Vertigo are teaming up with the original movie direct Fran and Kaz Kazui to throw together this big screen take. The promise is a relaunch and not a sequel or a prequel. Can the fandom handle a non Whedon buffy with yet another perky blonde stepping into the slayer's shoes?

Sad news for "Castlevania" fans; the Paul W.S. Anderson big screen adaptation is officially dead. No more chances of Simon Belmont and clan on the silver screen. Could this be a sign of the end of video game movies?

Despite reports of raucous boo-ing and general hate for "Antichrist" at the Cannes Film Festival, lead actress Charlotte Gainsbourg was named Best Actress of the festival. It's seldom that horror is given any accolades at such events so kudos to Gainsbourg for drawing the nod despite the widespread distaste for the moving coming out of France.

Here's a tip to horror filmmakers out there, if you want me to post about your film, find a way to incorporate a "pig person" somehow. Sure it's been done by "SAW", but for the life of me I can't help but be creeped out whenever I see a person wearing a pig's head. It's just... NOT RIGHT.

Anyways, this is the trailer for "Necromentia", a truly bizarre looking film that's about to debut at the Cannes Film Festival. It's directed by Pearry Reginald Teo, and the synopsis looks like this:


Ron Perlman says that if all goes well he'll be starring in Don Coscarelli's "Bubba Nosferatu" this fall. Perlman, of "Hellboy" fame, is replacing Bruce Campbell as "Elvis" from the first film. I love Perlman, but I'm not sure he's capable of filling either of those roles. We'll have to wait and see.

There's a new poster for this movie "Eve" that came out yesterday, but that's not the interesting news. People are (rightfully) remarking on the similarities between this and the comic book adaptation "Hack & Slash"... and by "similarities" I mean, it's the same exact plot. There's enough room in my heart for two sexy slasher hunters, but I'm not sure the rights holders to "Hack & Slash" are going to agree. We'll keep you updated on any legal shenanigans that may arise from this.

Thomas Dekker of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" talks about a few upcoming horror projects he's starring in. This should really please all of the Google searchers who seem to end up on our site while searching for people who also hate this guy.

Will Arnett and Michael Shannon have joined the cast of the "Jonah Hex" adaptation. After finally making my way through "Arrested Development" on DVD, hearing Arnett's name in conjunction with any project pretty much turns me into a giddy school girl.

Say what you want about the Weinstein's, they're definitely shrewd business men. They're continuing that trend by buying all the French horror they can while at the Cannes film festival. The way things have gone lately with the horror coming from our froggy friends, I can't say I blame them.
