"Motel" is a new thriller about a hit man brought to a secluded motel in the delta bayou who finds he must battle his peers for survival. Sounds like the worst vacation in the world? Am I right? And what's the deal with airplane food! Anyway John Cusack, Robert De Niro and Crispin Glover have all been added to the cast so maybe it wouldn't be such a bad trip after all. Well unless that Glover guy goes in the pool. He's so pale. It'll frighten the children.
I don't know why I just assumed that the "Total Recall" remake was going to be rated R but it looks like the scamps over at the MPAA have dropped the bomb that it will in fact be slapped with a PG-13 tag. This pretty much ruins the hopes I had of seeing an updated version of the 3 boobed hooker. Thanks guys, thanks for ruining our nation's birthday.
Entrepreneur Marc Siwak is working on plans that would bring a live action zombie based theme park called "Z World" to the Detroit area.The plan would take over 200 acres of abandoned housing and factories and turn them into an overnight adventure where people can live in their very own zombie outbreak. I don't want to spoil anything but I'm pretty sure if you want to run for your life in Detroit you can pretty much do that for free now pretty easily.
It's the day after the 4th of July so it's really slow and truth be told right now I'm pretty caught up with video footage of Lita Ford singing "If I Close My Eyes Forever" at a recent concert so I'm just going to tell you that Jena Malone has apparently landed the role of Johanna Mason in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire". I know what you're wondering and the answer is yes, Lita sings the Ozzy part and yes she goes right into "Kiss Me Deadly".

Three women in Florida getting arrested for prostitution isn't news. I mean unless one of them is named "Donkey". Then it's a cover story in my book.
Will the day ever come when genre-related filmmakers grow weary of making films which feature a gaggle of generic teenagers being stalked through a nondescript forest by a deranged killer with a penchant for unchecked brutality?
Ain't the internet grand? All it took was a single day, less than 24 hours after Icons of Fright's piece on the botched subtitles on the "Let The Right One in" DVD for Magnolia to issue an apology and attempt to rectify the situation. They will have new discs printed up right away with the "theatrical" subtitles. There will be no exchange available, but the new subtitles will be listed on the special features of the new disc so you can make sure you're getting the "right one". We will let you know when they're on store shelves. For now, if you haven't seen the film, wait!
"Ice Cream Man", the horror flick starring Crispin Glover as the titular "man", is still alive despite some false starts and a lot of time out of the spotlight. That's good news. And when it finally comes out, you can have the mindblowing double bill of this and "I Scream Man" starring Clint Howard. that ought to keep you from sleeping.... forever.
Len Wiseman will produce "Nonstop", about "the passengers of Flight 209 [who are] mysteriously abducted by an Alien ship." Sounds freakin' SWEET. It's being described as a "sci-fi/action/thriller". Don't forget that Wiseman, of "Underworld" fame, also has the "Gears of War" trilogy in the works.
