The team of Eli Roth and Eric Newman will once again team up for "Psycho Killer". The film that follows both a serial killer, a psycho and an officer will be written by Andrew Kevin Walker who brought us all "Seven". Not too shabby sounding huh? And I avoided the obvious Talking Heads reference.

And let the avalanche of crap begin. "FDR: American Badass" is a new film that will follow Franklin D. Roosevelt, written as a werewolf hunter who fights the hell spawn in his customized wheelchair. I assume there will be other president fighting evil films shortly after. I'd like to officially toss out "Martin Van Buren: Chupacabra Exterminator" as an idea.

If you love "Resident Evil" films but hate looking at Milla Jovovich's mom hips you're in luck. "Resident Evil: Damnation" is a full on CGI sequel to "Resident Evil: Degeneration" and it's got a super new trailer for you to view. Computers > People. That's math, you can look it up.

"Hobo With a Shotgun" is a movie, and now it's got a bunch of cool new posters, only two of which that actually feature a hobo with a shotgun. So that's a nice surprise. It's like Christmas if you lived in the worst trailer park ever imagined... and there isn't any cable so you had to watch old re-runs of "Monchichis"... like homeless people do.

We debate the finer points of first-person filmmaking

There's a new poster floating around from the upcoming "Let Me In" flick and good news, it's French and it's got just the right amount of blood in it! For those of you French speaking readers keeping track at home "Let me In" is Le Remake of the Swedish film Le "Let the Right One In" that I thought was Le Crap!

If you were in Vegas recently and weren't in a drug induced cloud of rage then you might of scored a peak at what David Tennant is going to look like as Peter Vincent in the upcoming "Fright Night" remake. Then again if you were in Vegas and were spending your time looking for horror movie posters then I don't think you deserve to be reading my news. I bid you good day sir... Good day sir!

Maybe I'm out of touch good people at Spike but I've been reading your nominees for the Ultimate Scream category for your 2010 Scream Awards and I'm a bit confused as to why something like "Avatar" is nominated. Does Ultimate Scream mean I should be screaming at my computer while reading your stupid ass nominee list? Cause ya got me!

Want to experience a producer and a director give each other high fives via the written word? You're in luck then! Eli Roth and Daniel Stamm recently sat down with Empire Magazine to discuss "The Last Exorcism", mashed potatoes and fashion. Spoiler! Eli Roth is a charming SOB.

Next up on the movie list is the Eli Roth produced "The Last Exorcism". Can the film live up to the hype? We're still not sure but one thing we do know is Eric and Joe go to see the movie together and there's some awkward moments when they both reach for the popcorn.

Good news for fans of "The Book of Eli" and "From Hell": Sibling directors The Hughes Brothers are slated to lense the live-action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's graphic novel "Akira". I tap my chin worriedly, though I am intrigued by the idea. I also like Vanilla Coke, so go figure.

Thanks to the fine, opportunistic folks working behind-the-scenes at Sony Pictures, James Cameron's underwater epic "Pirahna II: The Spawning" will arrive on DVD this April. If you ever get the opportunity to procure Cameron's autograph, be sure to bring your copy of the film along for the ride. I'm sure he'll appreciate the joke.

Speaking of DVD release dates, E1 Entertainment has picked up North American distribution rights for director Fruit Chan's ambitious remake of Hideo Nakata's supernatural freakshow "Don't Look Up." The film stars Henry Thomas, and Kevin Corrigan, and Eli Roth. Yes, I said Eli Roth. Got a problem with that?

What a coincidence. The same week we review Ti West's "House of the Devil", his forsaken horror film "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" finally has a trailer land online. Word is that West had a falling out with Lionsgate over the film.

Oh, wait...here's something:

Eli Roth says that his slasher parody/homage “Thanksgiving” is still a “very real possibility” . YAWN, WANK. Do we, really as a collective of genre fans, really even care about announcements like this anymore? Where's “Trailer Park”, Eli? How's “Cell” coming along?? Here's my new rule: I refuse to get excited about anything, ever, until I see a trailer or, at the very least, a poster with a hard 'n' fast date.

You want some real news? How about that the novelization of the movie “Black Devil Doll” is out! Why is this so important? Because I wrote the introduction! Is this probably the most important book of our generation, if any generation? I would have to go out on a limb and say YES. Yes, it is. So don't be a racist and order a copy now! Order two!
