In honor of Halloween we kick ass for the Lord.

"The Cabin In the Woods" has a trailer! I still have no idea what the movie is about but I can 100% confirm there is in fact a cabin and it is in fact in the woods.

"The Devil Inside" is yet another addition to the long list of exorcism flicks that have made their ways into our hearts over the past couple years. But hey here's some new screen shots from the film and they look like they were filmed on some crappy VHS recorder that they found at the back of someone's mother's closet so that's something new. I'm not saying it's a good thing, I'm just saying it's new.

The Ring Lord himself Mr. Peter Jackson has recently wrapped up production on a new documentary about the "West Memphis Three", a true story about three men who were wrongfully accused for the murder of three 8-year-old boys and subsequently spent 18 years in prison. I don't have any sarcastic comments here, cause ya know even I'm not that big of a monster. I'm close... but not that big.

You ever see that movie "The Warriors"? Man it's awesome. I love the speech that main guy gives about "turf" just before all hell breaks loose. It's so dope, son. Anyway the movie "Turf" is a big screen adaptation of a graphic novel by the same name and has absolutely nothing to do with that speech or "The Warriors". There's a bunch of gangsters, vampires and aliens battling it out in 1920's New York though. Oh man, The Baseball Furies! They scared the crap out of me.

(The following review is based on the “Director’s Cut” version of “The Frighteners” included on the film’s recent Blu-Ray release.)

The world demanded it and the good people at Universal answered our prayers. I speak of course about "Death Race 3". While nothing has been confirmed there's word around campus that Paul W.S. Anderson will be writing the script for part 3 and Danny Trejo will return. Tanit Phoenix will also be back and that's exciting for all of us because according to IMDB she's played a stripper in about 8 movies and starred in something called "Kamasutra Nights". Let the Oscar buzz begin!

This afternoon I was down at the Manhole for lunch and the rumors flying around there are that none other than Paul Walker, Texas Ranger is in talks to play Kyle Reese in the much anticipated "Terminator 5". Of course that's not his real name but it would be awesome if it was. Anyway Justin Lin, who directed Walker in the last "Fast & Furious" movie is set to direct... I trust my fellow foodies down at The Manhole on this one. The lunch buffet is delicious, don't judge.

Years before Peter Jackson directed a 38 hour trilogy he directed a movie I actually liked called "The Frighteners" starring Michael J. Fox. And while three films that spawned a million pornos have been released in countless formats sadly "The Frighteners" has yet to make its way to Blu-Ray. Well good news kids, come September 13th you can get your grubby little mits on the flick with tons of special features and 0 wizards. Alright in all fairness the porn parodies are pretty decent. The visuals, you wouldn't believe!

Pultizer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire is being taken out for a lovely steak dinner by the people at MGM in the hopes that he will write the much discussed "Poltergeist" remake. No word on if he'll accept but if he orders dessert it's pretty much understood he has to, especially if it's the 3rd date.

Yes. "Dead Alive" is now streaming.

For most of you, that's enough to have you go rushing to your TVs to boot your Netflix streaming device of choice up. If you're somehow unfamilar with the film "Dead Alive", you may know it under the name "Braindead".

Actress Zelda Rubinstein, best known for her role as Tangina in Tobe Hooper's classic "Poltergeist," died of natural causes on Wednesday. She was 76.

Have you longed to feel the rancid breath of a giant ape on your face as he leaps over your head to attack a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex? If so, you're in the luck. Filmmaker Peter Jackson has helped Universal Studios relaunch their "King Kong" theme park ride, which will open its doors this summer. Remember to pack your banana hammock.

The first trailer for Capcom's upcoming live-action adaptation of "Dead Rising" has appeared online. It's cheap, it's ugly, and it's extremely violent. In other words, I'm giddy with excitement.

Anchor Bay recently announced they have acquired the rights to Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo's "After Life," a new horror/thriller starring Christina Ricci, Justin Long, and Liam Neeson. When this thing will see the light of day is still anybody's guess.

This week we all fawn over Neil Blomkamp's "District 9", and Eric gets his harshest piece of fan mail in a while.

In the seven weeks since "Transformers 2" opened the average budget for a weekend-winning film has been $156 million. That's an average, mind you, and it's weighed down somewhat by "Bruno," which opened at #1 after costing only a measly $42 million. Truly, this summer, big-budgets have been king. Even "Bruno" was the most expensive new release in the weekend that it won.
