Get excited iApple iNerds! Ghost House has joined forces with Trigger Apps to develop a handy dandy "Evil Dead" shooter game for the iPhone and iPad. They follow the path of the first film and then branch off into a whole new storyline. It'll also come with Bryce Campbell's home phone number. Alright that might be a lie.
The advertising hot dogs behind the upcoming film "Priest" have jumped in to launch an online game for the film. The game can be played in both 2D and 3D, if you can find some glasses, and for those of you that are hammed right now it can even be played in 6D. Because you see double sometimes when you're drunk. Get it? It was either that or a "play with yourself" joke so consider yourselves lucky.
I'm a firm believer that if dogs have the opportunity they will turn on us and make us their slaves. For that reason it's pretty obvious that all dogs should be put in cages and treated like deadly criminals. Apparently though the makers of the new short film "Play Dead", which has a trailer and poster out on the tubes, think when the zombies take over "man's best friend" will be our only allies. Adorable idea, but completely inaccurate.
William Fichtner, who I'm 99% sure is a robot, is all ready to join the cast of Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi flick "Elysium". The movie also stars Jodie Foster and Matt Damon or as I like to call them Fostermon. I don't think they're dating or anything but it's fun to make up names for people isn't it?

It's unfortunate that with all the fussin and fightin in the world you can't even spank a kid who gets out of line anymore. But god bless these cops in Colorado who took things to a whole new level by using pepper spray on a second grader who got a little to out of line. Did someone yell "In 'yo face!" when he got hit? Man I hope so.
An NYC official is asking for $1.5 million to deal with the rat problem that he says is effecting tourism in the Big Apple. Honestly I come into the city every day to go to work and the pit in my stomach has nothing to with the rats and everything to do with being so close to "Mama Mia" on Broadway. I can't be the only one.
Director Neil Blomkamp is gearing up for his "District 9" follow up by getting Jodie Foster to climb aboard "Elysium". Little is known about the film's plot other than it takes place on a distant planet in the far future. Ms. Foster will be joining Matt Damon and Sharlto Copely, so at least it looks promising.
Anthony Hopkins is preparing to try and creep us out once again with his upcoming supernatural church thriller, "The Rite". The marketing machine is starting to spin up, so be sure to check out the new TV spots and posters at the link.
"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller has a secret up his sleeve; he's been writing horror scripts on the sly! Using the nom de plume Ted Foulke, Miller is now shopping his scripts for "Stoker" and its prequel, "Uncle Charly". Both films have Fox Searchlight as well as Jodie Foster interested.
Behind the scenes footage of "Scream IV" is starting to arrive online! Though the pictures don't show much as far as details, we can at least deduce that yes, this is actually happening.
Sam Raimi is going to further test his comic adaptation skillz by signing on to direct Radical Comics "Earp", a futuristic tale of the O.K. Corral gunfight.

Has former VP Dick Cheney become a member of the undead? If you were to check his pulse after his new ventricular assist devices were installed on his heart this week, you might thing so! Do to the pumps creating a constant flow of blood, the blood flow becomes a constant stream as opposed to a systolic beat. Zombie Cheney says "Ooooooil...."
An NYC paramedic was accused last year of ignoring a dying pregnant woman last year because he was on his coffee break. This week he learns that karma is a bitch when he was gunned down in front of a night club. At least he has time for an extra cup of coffee on his extended break.
On this day in history:
