The writer of "Sorority Row" and "Piranha 3D" updates his blog with news/thoughts on both films, both of which he feels are going to turn out really well. "Sorority Row" is apparently completely finished at this point, and according to him lives up to his original script, which as he says was "Scary. Funny. Tense. Stylish. Bloody. Sexy". I did actually get most of that from the trailer, so consider me excited.

Here are the specs for the new "Night of the Creeps" DVD, and damn, I have to say they're going all out with the special features. Once this one's off our list, what's the next big horror title that needs to be released on DVD? My other major one was "Phantasm II", but that one was also announced recently.

Just as I was ranting on the podcast last night about how much I dislike Rob Zombie's "Halloween", up popped the news on Twitter that the full official site for the sequel is now live. It was interesting timing, to say the least.

Megan Fox tells MTV that Jonah Hex is going to be amazing. She also says that blah blah blah God damn she's hot.

More pics from Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2". I only post them because the director's cut of "Halloween" is our topic for discussion next week on the podcast, so I have to subject myself to it this weekend. I'm currently devising ways to try and stop the pain while it's playing. Suggestions welcome.

First stills from the Woody Harrelson zombie comedy "Zombieland", or as I like to call it, "a probably fun film that will most assuredly be the official zombie jumping the shark moment when historians look back to this time".

Marcus Nispel officially has the job directing the "Conan" remake. This has Schnaars really broken up, he was really hoping Brett Ratner would get the job.

Some bloody "Piranha 3D" pics. I'm marginally excited for this. I would say "really excited", but let's not forget that "Mirrors" wasn't supposed to be the funniest film of last year. It's hard to tell what will happen when Aja actually tries to be funny... he is French after all.

Neil Marshall is reportedly in talks to direct the "Predators" sequel for Robert Rodriguez. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go find my head because it just blew straight off my fucking shoulders.

Were you eagerly awaiting a sequel to Tobe Hooper's "Toolbox Murders" remake? Me neither, but they're trying to placate me by throwing Jeffrey Combs, Tony Todd and Lance Henriksen into the mix. Did it work? You can check out the teaser trailer at the site and tell me.

Jaume Balaguero to direct "Flatmate". Balaguero is one half of the duo behind the original Spanish film "[REC]", but little else is known about the project at this time.

Sweet Jesus, a sequel to "The Messengers"? ME NO WANT. If you want, there's a trailer at the link.

Simon Baker to star in "The Killer Inside Me, as a really handsome murderer who kills other handsome people, like Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, and Kate Hudson. It's just so realistic!

Christopher Lloyd has joined the cast of "Piranha 3D". I'm officially going to start having wet dreams about this movie. Stay tuned for details.

The adaptation of Steve Niles "Wake the Dead" is delayed because the WETA workshop has to work on "The Hobbit" for Guillermo Del Toro. Jesus, the guy's so freaking busy that now he's delaying other people's projects? Will his reign of pudgy Mexican tyranny ever end? (I kid, I kid)

Sam Mendes talks to MTV about his adaptation of the graphic novel "Preacher", including when we can expect it and whether or not there will be a sequel.

Buried in this interview with Brett Easton Ellis is news about "Silent Hill 2", weird huh? The news is that, according to Ellis, Roger Avary (writer of the original SH film) will be jumping behind the cameras for the sequel. Originally Avary had said that he wouldn't write the film unless the director of the first Christophe Gans returned, but if this news is true it looks like he may have changed his tune.

For serious, people, how many trailers for "Blood: the Last Vampire" have I posted about now? I know a lot of you are anticipating this title, I'm just wondering if this isn't overkill at this point.

Paul Scheer joins the cast of "Piranha 3D". Scheer (Human Giant, Best Week Ever), brings even more comedic talent to a film that's already looking silly as hell. Is it possible that they'll overshoot the "camp" mark and ruin it? Either way, I know I can' wait to find out!

Tons of behind the scenes photos from "Saw VI", including head shots of all the new cast members and some nice BTS shots. Enjoy.

Good morning folks! Want to download the score of "Martyrs" for free? Well, apparently the composer of the film has given it up, temporarily, for free on the internet. Click on the link and start downloading!

Katie Holmes to star in the Guillermo Del Toro produced "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark"? Yup, it became official yesterday. The remake follows a young woman who moves back in with her father and his girlfriend, only to be hounded by a supernatural entity. It's about to start shooting, which should give me a good 6 to 8 months before the release to chastise those who preferred turtle-faced Maggie Gylenhaal in "The Dark Knight". Prepare yourselves.

Endearing Indie title of the week: "It Ate His Face". I also like how they misspell "Michigan" in the synopsis... good times.

Due to some impending financial trouble for Senator Distribution, "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" has been moved yet again to the "to be determined" block of their releases. I officially give up. It's a fun movie that won't do well in theaters... why not just put it out on DVD and make some money? At this rate, everyone and their brother with a modicum of computer skills will have already seen it by the time it gets released. Use your heads, people.

Jerry O'Connell, he of fat-kid in "Stand By Me" fame, joins the cast of Alexandre Aja's "Piranha 3D" remake, thereby solidifying this as the silliest horror film currently in production. I can't wait.

Live in Arizona, have a hot, sexy body and want to be in "Piranha 3D"? well they're looking for extras for a giant lake-party scene. I already forwarded them nude pictures of Louis Fowler. Expecting to hear back any minute now.

The official plot to "Saw VI" has been released. Here's a recap (*spoilers!*) Agent Straham is dead, and Detective Hoffman is the lone successor to Jigsaw's throne. As the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is "finally understood". Some are speculating that the final line means this may be the last film. I can't possibly believe that, considering they're still making 30 mill a pop. The only thing I'm concerned about is I'm not seeing Julie Benz's name in the cast. Maybe she's holding out for more money? Let's hope she'll be there come this Halloween.

The guys behind the French film "Inside" have their next project, and it's called "Livid". The film is about a young girl who becomes a caretaker for an elderly woman, and decides (with a friend) to search the house at night for a purported treasure. Supernatural shenanigans ensue.

The director of the Korean horror film "Phone" is going to film a US remake... because the moviegoing public is so in to Asian horror remakes these days. Good call.
