    Editorial: WHY IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER BLAIR WITCH, Part 2

    The summer of the year that brought the 20th century to a close, for me, was a fantastic and exciting time. I had just celebrated my twenty-fifth birthday, I was living on my own in a semi-luxurious apartment and I was shamelessly indulging in the nightclub lifestyle – my weekends comprised of hitting disco after […]

    TV Review: DEAD OF SUMMER – Episode 5: “How to Stay Alive In The Woods”

    It’s 2016, over 20 years since we were first introduced to the Candyman and Tony Todd is still scary as shit. With a voice that demands a 5.1 set up, he still has a screen presence that few come close to and makes me hold my breath every time his arms are out stretched towards […]

    Editorial: WHY IT’S FINALLY TIME FOR ANOTHER BLAIR WITCH Pt.1

    I was 13 when I convinced my mom to take me to the theater located inside our local mall to see a movie she didn’t know anything about called THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Prior to seeing it, I would log on to AOL and reread the timeline on www.blairwitch.com so I would know a fictionalized […]

PIRANHA 3D Trailer to Play before AVATAR

Rob G. was kind enough to pass along this press release, which tells us that the first trailer for PIRANHA 3D will play before showings of AVATAR this weekend.  Attaching a trailer for a horror film to what seems a surefire blockbuster is a savvy move, and should bring lots of attention to Alexandre Aja’s new […]

Eisner Now Brooding

On the heels of my earlier comments about some commercial dude directing THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON remake instead of Breck Eisner, I can report that, according to the L.A. Times, Eisner will be directing another remake:  David Cronenberg’s THE BROOD. Eisner’s remake of THE CRAZIES has been getting lots of love on other […]

The Creature Comfort of a Director?

It appears as if the remake of the Universal Classic CREATURE OF THE BLACK LAGOON may have found a director.  Commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch, who has worked for Ridley and Tony Scott, seems to be in line to direct the 1954 flick. Universal has been talking about remaking BLACK LAGOON for over a decade […]

Showtime Sets Record with DEXTER Finale

MTV’s Take on TEEN WOLF: “Dramatic Thriller”

Buried in THR’s announcement that MTV has set its cast for its reincarnation of TEEN WOLF is an odd bit of news:  the TV show is not going to be a goofy comedy, but a "dramatic thriller with a buddy-comedy element at the center and a romantic plot line." Which makes me ask:  Why? The […]
