The first trailer for Lars Von Trier's new end of the world flick "Melancholia" has hit the tubes and much to my surprise it looks fairly un-hammer-to-the-penis-like. Yes that women who took a hammer to William Defeo's penis in "Antrichrist" is in this movie, so you keep thinking about it, but there's nothing to lead me to believe that's going to happen again. God I hope that doesn't happen again.

Speaking of Willem Dafoe and his lumbering manbits, they'll both be in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Dean Kootz's "Odd Thomas". The story focuses on a cook who's able to speak to the dead. Defoe plays a police chief who knows the young lad's secret. I have no clue if Defoe's member will be playing a different role.

It looks as if Rob Hall's "Fear Clinic" mini-series will be making it's way to the big screen, and Danielle Harris and Robert Englund are both on board for the magic. For those of you who aren't familiar with the series or Rob Hall's spiky hair, it follows a group of patients who come to a clinic in order to cure the phobias that run their lives. Much like the god awful fear I have of Willem Dafoe's privates. Let's keep this going!

Jessica Biel his apparently been offered a role in the upcoming "Total Recall" remake. No confirmation on which role she's been offered but chances are it's one of the two leads. She doesn't seem like the kind of girl who would be into playing that big women who has an exploding head or the three boobed hooker. Then again what do I know, I'm still focused on Willem Dafoe's flim flam. Happy Monday folks!

I have no idea if there's a bestiality handbook out there, but I don't think you need one to know you don't do it in your backyard. But it looks like this 17 year old in New Zealander doesn't know that because he's been convicted of the animal nasty after his neighbor saw him making love to his cat. Yeah I said it, making love.

After 64 years on this planet you've got to be struggling for ideas on how to celebrate your birthday. But this Florida man came up with something new, he flashed a school bus full of kids! I would of gone with a trip to Denny's, I'm pretty sure you eat for free. But flashing a bunch of kids would be a close second.

Brad Anderson, of "Session 9" fame, has signed on to direct "The Living and the Dead" for Solipsist films. The story is about a "monstrous character who engages in the 19th century version of snuff theater, luring innocent poeple in a Grand Guignol of flesh and blood".

"Paranormal Activity" producers ready to sell spec for "The Jealous One".

I'm just as surprised as this guy is that Syfy has yet to make a film about the Mongolian Deathworm. Looks like we're both getting our wish?

Check out the trailer for Rob Hall's web series "Fear Clinic". Hall is fresh off his direct to video slasher "Laid To Rest". This new series will be airing exclusively on FearNET.

You may have thought that owning 80 cats had something to do with the fire that destroyed this woman's home, but you'd be wrong... it was actually a colony of ants who were nesting around an electrical outlet. That is some seriously impressive hygiene, right there.

Tough guys think they're going to beat up on a couple of fellas in drag, turns out they're cage fighters on a "fancy dress stag night" out with friends. Fierce ass-kicking ensues.

This is officially the first time I've ever heard of someone being murdered over a BAM-BAM pendant. Or really, anything BAM-BAM related. He must have been a huge Flinstones fan.

People trying support local farmers by buying locally grown marijuana in California are putting financial hurt on Mexican drug cartels. Go Mom & Pop!!

"Laid To Rest" Premiere Coverage!

Deep beneath the bowels of the Los Angeles Marriot Hotel resides Laemmle’s Grande 4-Plex Theater, a rustic Cineplex reeking with the age-old air conditioning, stale popcorn and urinal cakes. For some, a theater like this wouldn’t seem fitting for a Hollywood premiere. But when that film is a gritty slasher like Robert Hall’s "Laid to Rest", the combination is a match made in hell.

This past Saturday, a small crowd of die-hard horror fans assembled at the Grande 4-Plex to experience the the film's premiere, which hits DVD shelves everywhere this week.

Bobbi Sue Luther, Rob Hall on "Laid To Rest"

Rob Hall is a prolific special effects guru, responsible for work on series such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Firefly", "Angel" and "The Sarah Connor Chronicles". His film resume includes the current remake of George Romero's "The Crazies", among scores of others. His wife, Bobbi Sue Luther, recently became his collaborator on Rob's latest directorial effort "Laid To Rest", a film in which she served as both lead actor and Producer. We sat down with the two of them recently to chat about the project, and here's what happened.

It certainly was a great crash course as far as producing movies was concerned. Luckily I had Rob there to guide me.
