that's just nasty

Brad Anderson, of "Session 9" fame, has signed on to direct "The Living and the Dead" for Solipsist films. The story is about a "monstrous character who engages in the 19th century version of snuff theater, luring innocent poeple in a Grand Guignol of flesh and blood".

"Paranormal Activity" producers ready to sell spec for "The Jealous One".

I'm just as surprised as this guy is that Syfy has yet to make a film about the Mongolian Deathworm. Looks like we're both getting our wish?

Check out the trailer for Rob Hall's web series "Fear Clinic". Hall is fresh off his direct to video slasher "Laid To Rest". This new series will be airing exclusively on FearNET.

The internet has been a great boon for many, from pirates to pornographers to Nigerian royalty, but perhaps no one has benefited as much from the endless, unfiltered knowledge on tap through the web than horror filmmakers. Before the internet filmmakers had to work hard to come up with original ways to shock and disgust the audience. It took a true artist to push the boundaries and dare the audience to look upon things that might be better left unseen.

One of the stars of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles", Thomas Dekker has signed on to co-star in Platinum Dunes' "A Nightmare on Elm St." remake. A self described horror fan, Dekker will share on screen time with the other male lead, Kyle Gallner from "The Haunting in Connecticut".

New UK quad for Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell", revamped with lots of shiny new pull-quotes. Not sure I feel good about the biggest one being "Ain't It Cool News" (does anyone really read that site?), but it seems that the buzz is starting out good nonetheless. The film hits theaters May 29th.

New pic from "H2", showing Myers stabbing the crap out of someone in what appears to be a hospital. Zombie has said that only a brief portion of the film will take place in the hospital, and that it will not be a direct remake of 1981's "Halloween II".

I know we shouldn't encourage the guys over at Asylum, known for their terrible, awful little movies with blatantly ripped-off titles, but I just can't help it. Here's the teaser trailer for "The Terminators", which hits DVD April 28th.

"Wrong Turn 3" director Declan O'brien to remake "Little Shop of Horrors", with help from "Bourne" producer. Nope, not making that up. He also says he'll be "taking it in a different direction". Not sure what that means, but feel free to speculate wildly in the comments.

Patrick Tatopoulos to direct adaptation of the forthcoming comic book "I, Frankenstein". The story shows old school monsters who have evolved and are living in a modern film-noir setting.
