House at the End of the Street

Check out the interior of Eli Roth's "Goretorium" haunted house in Las Vegas. If you follow him on twitter he was posting pictures of lines around the block for its opening last night. Sounds great, except you'd have to live in Vegas and that sounds awful.

People are using GIF's now to promote their horror films, like that one for the Ethan Hawke film "Sinister". I could have used a few GIF's of Jennifer Lawrence last week to keep me interested in "House at the End of the Street"... missed opportunity.

Go behind the scenes of "Hotel Transylvania". We decided it looked too "Dreamworksy" for us to review it on the podcast. If a vampire doesn't make that stupid Dreamworks face at one point I'll give you my TV.

Joe Dante has announced some select screening dates and cities for "The Hole 3D". This has led other horror site owners to nearly have an aneurysm trying to come up with pun headlines. Get it, HE'S OPENING HIS HOLE. Congrats guys, we're all stupider for having read that.

There's a lot going on in this episode, most of which has nothing to do with the movie.

It is something of a right of passage for a young actress in Hollywood: take some work shooting a low budget horror script, only to see the studio monkey around with release dates in an attempt to ride the coattails of your more visible or popular work. History is littered with "she was in that?" films. Prominent examples include Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger.

It is the witching time of year and the Halloween season is upon us. Let's take a look at what's haunting theaters this fall...


9. Hotel Transylvania

Date: September 28
Director: Genndy Tartakovsky
Cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg

Fresh off her success in "The Hunger Games," the first photos have surfaced of Jennifer Lawrence starring in the upcoming "House at the End of the Street", a new horror movie scheduled to be released this fall. The film centers around a mother (Elisabeth Shue) and daughter (Jennifer Lawrence) who move in to a new community and find themselves next door to a house with a terrible past. Years ago, in a notorious incident, a psychotic young girl murdered her parents.

There's nothing more fun than nutso clowns battling each other to the death is there? Well "The Last Circus" is here to make all your wildest dreams come true and today there's a red band trailer for the big top blood bath. The film revolves around a love triangle between a sad clown, a trapeze artist and her abusive happy clown husband. Sounds like what Cirque du Soleil would be if it was tolerable.

Get in line now kids because on October 26, 2012 "Halloween 3" will hit the theaters! No director has been picked for the third installment of the much debated Rob Zombie reboot but there's little to no chance Robbie will have anything to do with it. Which is good for haters of the first two but really bad for lovers of slow motion pan shots set to crappy 70's cover songs. Correction: Patrick Lussier will direct "Halloween 3D". You can go back to planning your next D&D gathering in your mom's basement now.

I was pretty down on the "Conan the Barbarian" remake for a long time but since watching Jason Momoa, who will play Conan, on "Game of Thrones" I've become more and more fired up. Now there's a new red band trailer and TV spot for the remake and I think I'm going to run out and get myself a loin cloth and sword. Once I get those I can really focus on getting washboard abs and being cast in the sequel.

"The House at the End of the Street" has been kicking around for a while now and as of today it looks like the film will finally see the light of day on April 20th of next year, yes that's 4/20 you filthy hippies. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Shue as a mother daughter combo (try to guess which is which) that move into a house where a family was mysteriously murdered and begin to uncover the community's spooky secrets. It's Shue who plays the mother, that Lawrence girl is like 20, people. I wish you'd think before you answer sometimes.

If you haven't seen "Scream 4" yet than I don't want to spoil it for you but without saying too much Wes Craven sat down recently to drop that there will most likely be another 2 films in the series. You see at the end someone ends up being the murderer and that will most likely cause a lot more issues for someone else and a few other people. Then some things happen.

Looks like there's trouble in Oz my friends. Sam Rami and the good people at Disney appear to be having a disagreement over the casting in the upcoming flick "Oz: The Great and Powerful". Apparently Rami wants Hillary Swank to play one of the main witches and Disney wants Michelle Williams. I haven't been contacted for my opinion but if pressed I'd have to say I don't care either way. Mark it down!

All the world has Mortal Kombat fever right now kids and the recent spike in interest of the classic video game is pushing the long held up next film in the franchise along. Looks like not only is Warner Brothers very interested in making a new film based on the game but also with the classics Space Invaders and Rampage. Sweet lord how I loved Rampage when I was a kid. My fat little digits making a giant Gorilla, Werewolf and Lizard fight each other. It was like heaven.

"House at the End of the Street", which focuses on a girl who moves in next door to a house where a double murder takes place and then befriends the one survivor, has been given a February 3, 2012 release date. Elisabeth Shue stars as the girl's mother so look for countless "MILF" references on that podcast in just under a year from now.
