Hey it's Halloween! What are you dressing as? Wow that's great! It's going to look even greater on the floor of your studio apartment tonight at 2am after you strike out at your local bar and go home alone. Have fun at work tomorrow!
We all gave this year's anthology flick with a heart of gold "V/H/S" a hearty thumbs up and now you can confirm we have good taste because the film is coming home on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 4th. No word on special features for the film but I hope there's a director's commentary because I want to hear 70 people trying to talk over a movie. I think we all gave it a thumbs up actually. I wasn't on the episode and truth be told I only like to listen to the sound of my own voice on podcasts.
[REC] masterminds Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero are moving things out of the apartment building and into the woods with a new flick titled "Summer Camp". Set to begin production sometime in mid 2013 the flick is some sort of weird version of tag where people get killed or something. I don't know the description is confusing but it's going to be in English so I'm on board.
Pascal Laugier's "Martyrs" is still getting all kinds of buzz and everyone is just wetting themselves waiting for word on what he's doing next. Well he's not doing a horror movie so go home and cry now. But before you go you should know he's going to film a love story, with what sounds like a lot of sex. You should also know that he plans on the love story turning very twisted. You should also know I ate french onion dip with my hands last night.
Yesterday I told you about how some small production company is looking to pick up "Fright Night 2" and start pumping out stand alone flicks. Remember? Good cause now I'm going to tell you that word has come down from the mountains that Eduardo Rodriguez will direct the sequel and it will be direct to DVD. None of the original cast will be in the flick so pretty much I think we're looking at another vampire flick with the "Fright Night" name slapped on it. Get excited.

Come to Berlin, see the sights, drink the beer and be mauled by a wild boar. Not something that normally happens in a major city but police took down the beast after it attacked and injured four people. Of course there's a number of times I've come home after a night of drinking and looked like I was attacked by an animal so I'd like to see photos of this thing.
And because I always like it when some good comes out of a tragic event, here's a video that Coco made during Hurricane Sandy Monday night. When the floods come, head for the mountains.
People have gone gaga for the African zombie flick "The Dead" and while I haven't seen it and I've been pretty tuckered out so I haven't even watched the trailer I want you to know that I am really excited about the sequel being announced. The sequel is slated for a February kick off and the filmmakers have confirmed they want it to blow the first flick out of the water. Wouldn't it be hilarious if they just came out and said they're doing this for money and they don't give a rat's ass if the film is good or not?
I kind of forgot about "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" and that it was actually happening but it is and today we've got word that Jaime King and Jamie Chung have both been confirmed for the flick. King will play the twin sister of Goldie, the little hooker that could from the original flick and Chung will play that girl who I lean over and ask my wife if she was on The Real World. Spoiler alert, she was.
It looks like a sequel to the "Fright Night" remake may actually happen despite the flick pretty much crapping the bed at the box office. Apparently there's an unnamed small production company that may want to pick it up and spin the film off into its own brand. What the hell that means I don't really know but I'm guessing we're looking at direct to video nonsense so most likely nothing good will come from this. Of course this is just a rumor so it could be BS. Like that one that got started when I was in High School that I tried to make love to a tape recorder. Don't judge.
Chloë Sevigny, who freaks me the 'eff out, has been cast in the new A&E Drama "Those Who Kill" about a cop partnered with a forensic profiler who specializes in serial killers. The show is a US adaptation of a Danish show and is based on the books of Elsebeth Egholm. I don't know who she is but that G in her last name kind of makes me uncomfortable too.

All hell is broken loose on the East coast so here's some crazy ass photos of some of the flooding and chaos. I'll get back to the posting about guys biting people's faces off tomorrow.
