In Search of Lovecraft (REVIEW)

When it was announced this past July that Guillermo Del Toro would be making "At the Mountains of Madness," fans of H.P. Lovecraft and horror in general squealed with delight. In general the excitement can be attributed to the fact that in general, everything Del Toro touches turns to gold, but to a certain type of genre fan, the announcement meant even more.

Edward Anderson Talks "Shuttle"

Edward Anderson is currently making the rounds with a film he wrote and directed called "Shuttle". The horror/thriller is being released by Magnolia Entertainment this week, and here's what happened when we tracked Anderson down for an interview recently.

But then I watched this trailer, and god dammit I kind of liked it. I know, I was just as shocked as you are.

Based on a book of the same name which is supposedly based on a true story, "Winter of Frozen Dreams" stars Keither Carradine and Thora Birch, the (voluminous) story goes like this:

Shuttle (REVIEW)

"Shuttle" starts out simply enough. Mel and Jules, two 20-something girls fresh off of a late-night flight home from their Mexican vacation, get stranded at the airport looking for their lost luggage. While there they run in to Seth and Matt, a lady's man and a sweetheart respectively, both of whom were on the same plane. As the girls try to hail a bus home, Seth schemes and convinces Matt to forgo their own ride home in favor of following the girls.
