12 Movies for your Halloween Movie Marathon

Movie marathons are tricky business. Equal parts foresight, improvisation, impulse decision-making, and nostalgia that you really don’t have all that much control over in the long run. You can plan ahead all you want but the energy of a room can turn a slow-burn pee-pants fest into annoying background noise in no time. Add a holiday on top of things, say for example Halloween, and you got more problems than that Jay-Z character.

Ivan Reitman wants to remake "Ghostbusters" now. Why the hell not already.

Barry Sonnenfeld, the guy who directed all three "Men in Black" films, has been tapped by the folks over at Warner Brothers to helm the big screen adaptation of the graphic novel "Lore". The film will focus on a man who becomes a member of a secret order that protects the world from folk bands. I kid it's got something to do with beasts or something. Dwayne Johnson is going to star. I adore him.

Holy crap don't you just love a good spoof movie? Did someone say "Scary Movie 19"!? Sign me up! And while you're at it serve me up a hot plate of "Supernatural Activity" which has just been bitch slapped with a November 9th DVD release. I'm not going to bother telling you what it's about because you can probably guess from the title but I will answer that one question that's burning in your loins right now... yes the guy from "My Sucky Teen Romance" is in it.

AMC is just cutting right to the chase and confirming that "The Walking Dead" will in fact get a fourth season. That's got to take a lot of pressure off the third season, huh? Have they finished filming yet? If they haven't I bet they will tomorrow.

In Real People News: 

A Tennessee college student was rushed to the hospital after he nearly died from "butt-chugging". What's that you ask? Well it's when you put a tube up your bum hole and funnel wine into your ass. Turns out that isn't how Jesus intended you to drink his blood.

Wait you can get arrested for having sex with a couch? This guy in Wisconsin only got arrested because he was doing it in public, right? Please say yes...

I don't care what anyone says, I'm excited about
"The Darkest Hour". Mostly because I'm a travel buff and the story focuses on a group of teens trapped in Moscow during a strange alien attack. And today we've got a cool new motion poster for the flick. I have no clue where these things show up but I want to see it in person. I also want to visit Dorney Park for their Halloween Nights. That's the ad I got before the video of the poster. It looks more fun than the movie to be honest.

Looks like the good people at Sony Pictures plan on releasing the original "Ghostbusters" back into theaters sometime in late October, most likely around Halloween. With the third installment of the franchise taking its sweet ass time to get going this is probably the only slimer action you're going to get for a long time. Unless that start running those old cartoons they made from the films. That's probably not going to happen though.

From the trailers and stills I've seen I'm still completely lost on what the new FX series "American Horror Story" is about but according to their site it focuses on a family that moves into a creepy house after the father does some diddling on the side. Well now we've learned that Sarah Paulson, who you probably know from "What Women Want" has joined the cast for 4 episodes. She'll be playing a medium that plays a big role in some sort of story arc. You're welcome for all this useful information.

I can't believe this hasn't been made before but here's the first image for "Wet Dream on Elm Street". If you couldn't guess the film is a porn parody of "A Nightmare On Elm Street" and today we've got our first look at Freddy Fingers, who instead of knives has dildos on his glove. There's something I never thought I'd write. It's a good day.

In Real People News: 

Let this be a lesson to you kids, death can strike at any time and at any place. Don't believe me? Here's a story about a woman who was killed in a McDonald's bathroom when a faulty hose leading to the soda machine started pumping carbon dioxide into the room. You're not even safe in the bathroom!

You ever see those pricks walking around the grocery story eating grapes from the fruit stand? I thought that was pretty bad but here's a story about a guy in Pennsylvania who is facing felony changes after he was eating raw beef in Walmart and putting the opened packages back on the shelf. You read right, raw beef... in Walmart. They should give him a medal for still being alive.

"The Wolfman", due in theaters February 12th, becomes even more worrisome as the studio brings in a new editor late in the development. With reshoots, new editors and the like, is there any hope of this being a good film? (Editor's Note: NO)

Have you been thinking to yourself, "Boy, I wish Brittany Murphy would do a horror movie!" Well, then you're in luck as the trailer for her new direct to video scare "Deadline" hits the web.

Did you like that Brittany Murphy news? Well guess what, I'm going to blow your mind. She has a second horror film coming out in limited theaters December 4th called "Across the Hall" and lucky you, you can watch the trailer right here!

Is it horror? Not really. Is it pretty cool? Yah, kind of. Is it too late to add to your Christmas list to Santa? Let's hope not. Minimates releases a new series of "Ghostbusters" figures, and they look so cute!

In Real People News: 

A Butler County man files a complaint with a police department claiming his arresting offices left him cuffed in the police cruiser for four hours while they redecorated his house with his girlfriend's dildos.

10th grade teacher Randolph Forde learned today that teaching high school may not be a good fit for his anger issues. Fed up with bad grades and classroom antics, he attempted to hire another student to kill the troublemaker.

A drunk man believing himself to be a ninja impales himself on the top of a five foot fence he tried to vault.

On this day in history: 

1421 - Heavy storms and high tide combine to destroy dikes in southern Holland. The ensuing flooding destroys 72 villages and kills between 4,000 and 10,000 people.

The "Ghostbusters" Theme Multitrack

I'm not sure if you've all realized it yet but the internet is freakin awesome. Need proof? Check out this guy who took his webcam and filmed himself singing each section of the "Ghostbusters" theme. And by section I mean he sings the guitar, keyboard, vocals and everything else then mixed them all together in one giant showcase of kickassness. Bonus points for not just doing the first verse and then giving up, nope he goes the full four plus minutes. Around minute three the drum solo really takes it to a whole new level. Enjoy folks.

"Ghostbusters" Video Game Mini-Review

The video game world has been abuzz this week with the release of the "Ghostbusters" video game, and the buzz is good. Thanks to a pretty awesome daughter, I got my own copy for Father's Day! After a good six hours spent busting ghosts (it really does make you feel good, fyi), I'm proud to report that the early twinges of excitement and hype that was felt back when the game was first announced are all justified.

Hi folks, Casey here. Eric had to take the day off, but thankfully he forgot to lock the door to the review dungeon before he left the office. So here I am with today's news for ya!

In a recent interview, Dan Akroyd reveals a few details on the upcoming "Ghostbusters 3." Confirmed is the return of Sigourney Weaver, and shooting is tentatively scheduled for this Winter.

Myriad Pictures and the Roseblood Movie Company announce a new flick based on an original Brett Easton Ellis screenplay. Ellis, known for penning some pretty edgy fare such as "American Psycho," lends his expertise this time around to the original story of a social outcast ridiculed by his peers who in turn takes them hostage, with disastrous results.

It's rumored that Oliver Stone is in talks to direct "Helter Skelter", based on the book of the same name written by Vincent Bugliosi.

Bruce Willis returns to the genre with a supernatural flick centered around small town horror as a young girl turns up missing under weird circumstances in "Grimm." The movie is currently in pre-production with Russell Mulcahy directing.

In Real People News: 

A Queens retiree makes extra money by selling flowers at the local cemetery. As it turns out, he gets his stock by stealing flowers from the same cemetery. Now that's a man that understands supply and demand.

On this day in history: 

May 20th 1999 - The dissolving body parts of eight people are discovered inside six plastic barrels sitting in an abandoned bank vault in Snowtown, Australia. I bet it still smelled better than my own rotting savings account!

"Ghostbusters" Multiplayer Trailer

I really can't get enough of this "Ghostbusters" gameplay footage. If this game plays anywhere near as well as it looks, it should be a blast.
