Redwood Empire Film Club 2: The Fog

I'll keep this one short as Schnaars already has done a spot on Review of the film. But I did want to mention it , because other than "I Know What You Did Last Summer" no film has featured the coastline of Northern California as prominently. Most of "The Fog" was shot on location in Point Reyes, Ca. a town that serves as the gateway to the National Seashore Preserve. More glorious than creepy, Carpenter did manage to mine the geography for it's remoteness.

Bioshock 2 Teaser Trailer

PS3 owners should know by now that "Bioshock," the mega-atmospheric Xbox360 hit comes out for the "other" system next week, October 21st to be exact.

Excuse the poor quality, this is the best version online so far.

Comics Creepshow 11: Marvel Zombies!

The first trailer for "The Haunting in Connecticut", or as I like to call it... every ghost movie, ever.

Paul Anderson is writing "Resident Evil 4". In the same article he also talks about knocking up Milla Jovovich, proving his uncanny talent at ruining hot properties.

AMC's FearFest (formerly MonsterFest) will be mixing it up this year by having Rob Zombie host. He won't be on 24/7, but he will be around every night from 8-10 to host the main feature of the night, present interviews, commentary and all kinds of other horror host goodies. I wasn't a huge fan of the "Halloween" remake, but having him host horror films is actually a fantastic idea. So, bring it on!

According to Variety, Johnny Depp's big screen adaptation of the 60's vampire soap opera "Dark Shadows" is "kaput", at least for now. Not surprising, considering I always had trouble figuring out how he planned to bring it into a theatrical setting anyways.

Here's the trailer for Jame's Gunn's new VH1 reality show "Scream Queens". Um, sorry James, but this show looks like trash. Also, when VH1 does a faux Grindhouse trailer, the trend has officially jumped the shark. Take note, world.

In Real People News: 

John McCain did not have sexual relations with a former staffer.. and THANK GOD, because I wasn't looking forward to having to throw up this morning.

Tom Cruise is not dead, so you can all uncross your fingers and toes. We'll just have to get 'em next time.

On this day in history: 

1984: The New York Times runs an article entitled "CIA Primer Tells Nicaraguan Rebels How to Kill." The story describes the secret manual Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare which the CIA furnished to the Contras in Nicaragua. The booklet instructed how to kidnap and assassinate civil officials, such as judges and police.
