From James Wan and Leigh Whannell, the co-creators of “Saw” the movie is about a happy family that begins to experiencing unexplainable events in their home after one of their children suffers a serious accident. Wait a second, maybe they’re not happy. I take that part back.

In a recent interview "Saw 3D" scribe Patrick Melton confirms that the 3D outing will be the last film for the franchise. Until next week when they announce that they're going to remake the original film next year or something equally silly.

"Repo: The Genetic Opera" is coming to The Wings Theatre in NYC this Saturday July 10th. Between this, the heat wave and the inevitable LeBron James rejection that's coming I thank god I'm getting out of the area this weekend. I predict riots in the streets before the second chorus of whatever god awful song opens up that thing.

In preparation for tomorrows release of "Predators" Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal sat down to discuss the filming process and why someone would name their child Nimrod. That second part was cut from the interview I think. Look for it on the Blu-Ray special features though!

A trailer for the new season of the VH1 show "Scream Queens" is online and to be honest is a little disappointing. The contestants will once again compete for a role in the next "Saw" film but no James Gunn this season and from what I can tell no ridiculously over sized fakes breasts. Really I could have let the James Gunn thing go but I'm not sure if I can get past the other.

Hot news for everyone heading out to Comic-Con. The cast of "Dexter" will be doing a panel discussion as well as premiering a new trailer for season 5 which hits Showtime on September 26. There's also going to be a lot of attractive women dressed up in skimpy superhero outfits. But you're probably more excited about the "Dexter" thing. Nerds.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes you just have to stand up for what you believe in. Like this guy out in Georgia who held his mother hostage because she refused to iron his cloths. Good for you buddy, don't back down.

A truck in Rome carrying 2.5 million euros overturned on the highway recently and motorists scooped up the prize. Sounds impressive until you realize 2.5 million euros equals roughly 13 U.S. dollars.

On this day in history: 

1776 - Col. John Nixon gave the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence to a crowd gathered at Independence Square in Philadelphia.

Saw VI (REVIEW)

"If it's Halloween, it must be 'Saw.'" That's what the commercials have been trumpeting. And being as this is the sixth straight fall to play host to a "Saw" release, it's hard to argue with the facts. That message's recipients, however, will likely be sharply divided on its intentions: celebratory rallying cry or menacing threat of inevitability.

"Ju-On" 5 and 6 are on their way stateside. Not sure what they're about? Watch the other 4, that should give you a pretty good idea.

If ever there were a series made for a hollow gimmick like the new 3D technology, it's definitely "Saw". You'll find quotes from one of the Producers on how the development process for the next film is going, and the ways they're trying to utilize the 3D at the link.

Check out all the entries for the "Instant Films 48 Hours Film Festival". Among the entries you'll find a film called "Shut up! I Said Shut Up!", by "Alien Raiders" director Ben Rock.

Paramount Pictures plans to release a new web series titled "Circle of Eight" on Myspace on October 27th. Yup, I said Myspace. Apparently that place still exists.

A ton of sneak peak videos from the "Night of the Creeps" DVD. Fred Dekker's 80's classic finally comes home to your collection in a few weeks.

In Real People News: 

Notorious serial killer gets caught by stealing a ceiling fan from a mosque. Not exactly the world's smartest criminal.

Sure, Sweden may be all "neutral" and stuff... but they also keep themselves warm by burning dead bunny carcasses. If that isn't evil, I don't know what is.

Another reason why the internet is greater than HAM radio, it won't electrocute the shit out of you. Well, at least if you're doing it right it won't.

On this day in history: 

1917: Dutch spy H21, also known as Mata Hari, is executed in Paris by a 12-man firing squad. The dancer, born Margaretha Geertruida Zelle, had slept with a number of high-ranking military officers from around the world and passed secrets along to the German high command. After death, her body is given to the University of Paris medical school for dissection.

Little birdies are telling me that the trailer for "The Wolfman" will be hitting the internet today. However since I get up at the crack of dawn like an old man, it's not up yet. Check back for updates???

ABC is at the top of the heap when it comes to picking up "Clive Barker's Hotel", the series being written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. It also turns out that McG's production company is in talks to produce, with the possibility that old G might take a hand at directing down the line.

A movie that doesn't exist yet, "Resident Evil: Afterlife", has a release date set for August 27th, 2010. That's a little more than a year away.

Say what you will about the people behind "Saw", they they sure know how to make awesome posters.

In Real People News: 

There have been three deaths at Disney World in the last seven weeks. I always knew that place was made of pure evil.

Viking religious ceremony scares the crap out of residents in local park. I'd be scared too if that many giant gingery people were gathered in the same place all at once. They can only be up to no good.

On this day in history: 

1191: Crusaders massacre 3,000 bound Muslim prisoners at Acre, after a breakdown in negotiations over payment of their ransom. The killings take place in full view of the army from which they were taken.

The Collector (REVIEW)

We are well past the halfway point of summer, and consequently the theatrical drought that has defined the past few months. From now through October there's nearly one if not two genre releases a week, and one can't help but notice that most of them are sequels or remakes. As such, the original properties tend to stick out quite a bit, and "The Collector" has drummed up a modicum of interest of late because of this. Unfortunately, horror fans looking for a breath of creativity before the oncoming rehash binge may find themselves a bit disappointed when all is said and done.

Offical “Saw VI” Teaser, "Saw VII" director

Yesterday we got our first look at “Saw VI” thanks to a clip from the Lionsgate booth at Comic-Con. Well today we got a full on teaser trailer for your viewing pleasure.

Horror Headlines: Thursday July 23rd, 2009

Here are details of Darren Lynn Bousman's next film "Abattoir". His previous film was "Repo: The Genetic Opera".

The first official teaser poster for "A Nightmare on Elm St.". It's still shadowy (as was yesterday's picture that came out), so hopefully we'll get a real nice look at Freddy Krueger sooner rather than later.

Official poster for "Saw VI". All I'm saying is, these people know how to make promotional art.

And speaking of "Saw", the director of the original, James Wan will be directing "Castlevania". He'll be working on his own version of the script with Producer Paul W.S. Anderson, and taking over helming duties from there. So, as of now it sounds like this long dormant project has some new life in it.

In Real People News: 

Taste something funny in your Big Mac secret sauce recently? Ya, it was probably people. If Charlton Heston were here, he'd be screaming right now.

Hey dumbass... I'm sure that bison is real pretty, but you probably want to stay more than 10 feet away when taking pictures of it, or else you'll probably get your ass gored.

On this day in history: 

1982: Vic Morrow is killed filming a stunt sequence for "Twilight Zone: The Movie" near Valencia, California. Morrow and two child actors are chopped into bits by the main rotor when a helicopter positioned dangerously close to the talent suddenly crashes.

Cool new motion poster for "Saw VI". This seems to be the new studio trend and I like it, except of course for the incredibly obnoxious music that you can't control. Might want to do something about that, guys.

The Syfy channel's remake of "Children of the Corn" will debut in September... just in time for harvest!

No one's sure exactly how it is going to happen, but news was reported yesterday that the original "Saw" is going to be converted into the new "Real-D" 3D technology. Would you pay to see the film again in a theater, with the new spin?

I can't possibly imagine that this is the first still from "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever", a film that seems like it's been in development for about 6 years now, but that's what the internet tells me. It was directed by a talented guy named Ti West, which is good, but all of the delays and the behind the scenes rumors do not give me hope.

"The Strangers 2" begins filming in September. Any ideas for a subtitle? How about "The Strangers 2: Even Strangier".

In Real People News: 

Woman shoots husband, uses the old "I was trying to release demons from his crotch defense". Ahhhhh yes, THAT defense, it's the first thing they teach you at law school.

This guy holds the record for witnessing the most executions in history. I bet he gets a lot of chicks.

On this day in history: 

1981: In Milwaukee, George Carlin is arrested for obscenity and disorderly conduct for performing his "Seven Dirty Words" routine in front of a group of wheelchair-bound children. He is released after posting $150 bail.
