Snapshot: "Shutter Island" (2010)

Leo Dicaprio shoots a paranoid look to the camera in Martin Scorcese's "Shutter Island". In the film, Leo plays U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels, who is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island. Scorcese, still prolific at almost 70 years old, currently has 5 films either announced or already in post-production.

Snapshot: "The Gate" (2010)

A piece of concept art recently released for Alex Winter's remake of "The Gate", currently being filmed in 3D. In the original "The Gate" (1987), Glenn (played by a young Stephen Dorff) and his friend Terry unwittingly open a gate to hell by playing a Rock 'N Roll record backwards. The remake will reportedly stay very close to the story of the original. Many people may also be surprised to hear it's being directed by Alex Winter, famous for his role in "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and its sequel, but don't forget he was responsible for the cult classic "Freaked" (1993).

Snapshot: "Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl" (2009)

Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu's deliriously bizarre 2009 action epic "Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl" can't arrive on DVD soon enough. The film, which chronicles the battle between two very unusual girls who fall in love with the same boy, promises a vast array of over-the-top arterial sprays and an abundance of gore-soaked mayhem. If you're still perplexed as to why, exactly, I'm anxiously awaiting its release, check out Nishimura's "Tokyo Gore Police." All your questions shall be answered within.

Snapshot: "Gozu" (2003)

This still from Japanese shock-master Takashi Miike's "Gozu", proves that he rivals the best when it comes to creating images that illicit WTF's from viewers. The film, which boasts the tongue-twisting original title "Gokudô kyôfu dai-gekijô: Gozu", was recently released in the US on a 2 disc special edition from Cinema Epoch.

Snapshot: "Splice" (2010)

In this hi-res image from "Splice", Canadian actress Sarah Polley approaches a half-human, half-animal hybrid that she and another scientist helped create. As with most things of this nature, the beautiful creature eventually turns on its creators and things get deadly. Directed by Vincenzo Natali ("Cube") and produced by Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth"), "Splice" will have its American debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January, before going wide across Europe in early 2010.

Snapshot: Won't You Be My Neighbor?

This image is a lot like an onion. There are many layers to it and if you stare at it long enough, it's probably going to make you cry.
