For you "30 Days of Night" fans, producer JR Young sits down with Dread Central to talk details of the sequel, "30 Days of Night: Dark Days". Principle photography for the film officially wraps today.

Rushing to capitalize off of the already phenomenal box office sales, the "Paranormal Activity" DVD and Blu-ray have been announced for December 29th. Details on the extras are slim aside from both the theatrical edit of the film and an unrated version with alternate ending.

Gamestudio Undead Labs has announced a zombie MMO. So far, only a console version has been announced.

New murmurings come to light about the proposed "Crow" franchise reboot. There is little available on new reboots except to remind you that this isn't going to be a direct remake of the first film. Look for new makeup and a possible known actor in the title role as well.

If the moderate temperatures (in the Northeast, anyway) and blockbuster fare at the box office have anyone feeling a little confused, well, join the club. It turns out though, that Sony's idea of rolling out their late season tentpole "2012," on this the 46th weekend of the year, has some precedent. In fact, you have to go all the way back to 2002 before you hit a group of new releases that doesn't feature a $150+ million film. So we probably should be thinking of the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving as a mini-blockbuster season.

LatinoReview.com has uncovered the script for Oren Peli's follow up to "Paranormal Activity", titled "Area 51". Still basking in the glow of his recent success, the studio has been trying to keep close tabs on the details for this one. So, if you don't mind spoilers... be sure to read on.

ABC has announced that it will not be renewing "Eastwick", the small screen adaptation of "Witches of Eastwick" after its 13 episode run. Don't worry, I'm sure we'll see Rebecca Romijin-Stamos-O'Connel again soon!

If you're wondering why Milla is so startled, it might have have something to do with the fact that her snoozy alien abduction pic posted a surprisingly nice opening. Coming in at $12.5 million, "The Fourth Kind" was strong enough for a fourth place finish in a crowded weekend that included four new films. "Fourth Kind" managed to outperform the other new horror flick of the week, Richard Kelly's "The Box," which slunk home just shy of $8 million.

Be advised. I talk about the ending of Paranormal Activity in this blog, soooooo SPOILERS!!!!!!!

If you haven't seen the movie, watching the original ending clip probably won't ruin it for you... but it's most likely best not to watch that either unless you have seen the film already.

Now, it was said that Steven Spielberg, upon seeing "Paranormal Activity," thought that the ending needed a bit more umph, and while, the current "Paranormal Activity" ending leaves us on an abrupt "oh no she didn't" moment, I found it satisfying after such a slow build.
