sorority row

Word just hit the web that Stewart Hendler's "Sorority Row" remake will be hitting DVD shelves February 23rd, 2010. The podcast crew was fairly positive on the film, but either way, it's sure to make your winter a little warmer this year. Check back here for more details when they're available.

After a little unscheduled break, the Box Office Special is back. And after a messy streak of flops, horror looks to be back too, with "Zombieland" flying out of the gates with a number one finish in its opening weekend. Let's catch up with a handy little chart:

This week we review the latest theatrical horror release, Summit's "Sorority Row".

If, like me, you've been waiting for a movie to come along and blow up the myths and hypocrisies that surround sorority life, you can, sadly, keep waiting. However, if you've been waiting for a movie that panders to the basest, most exploitative stereotypes of college students and sorority girls in particular, you my friend are in luck, because "Sorority Row" is just such a film. It is also -- sometimes seemingly as an afterthought -- a modestly competently neo-slasher.

So... I do have to admit that I haven't seen "The Host" yet. The reason I say that is because here's the first still from the sequel. Does the creature in the first film look that terrible? Please inform.

Excited for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" this Halloween? Now you can enter a fan-art contest being sponsored by Warner Bro's for the release. Check it out!

Here's the final one-sheet for "Sorority Row". Not as sexy as the others, but that was a hard track record to live up to.

Ben Ketai has been hired to direct the "30 Days of Night" sequel, subtitled "Dark Days". The film will follow Melissa George's character (recast apparently) as she heads back to Las Angeles and intentionally attracts the local vampire population to get revenge for her husband's death. So, we recast the lead and take the story out of the arctic circle? Count me out.

We’re just a couple weeks away from the release of “Sorority Row” and I couldn’t be more excited. I didn’t go to a college with frats or anything so I feel like this is my one big chance to really get the full treatment. The clip below for example shows all the fun of a typical sorority party. Unprotected sex, STDs and roofies just to name a few. Really makes you think about going back to college doesn’t it?

So take a look and let us know what you think. Seems like a good time to me. “Sorority Row” will be in theaters on September 11th.

This morning brings the news that 2010 will see an "Exorcist" Blu-ray, with both existing cuts of the film.

Check out this "age restricted" clip from "Sorority Row". It's not restricted for the reason(s) I would have liked, but it's a slow news day so we'll take what we can get.

Hey guess what, there's literally a white horse in "Halloween 2". And why shouldn't there be. Ya, no, this is going to be great.

"Train", the film that was originally a remake of "Terror Train" but then turned out not to be, will be going direct to DVD on November 17th. The film stars Thora Birch, so at least it's got that going for it.

You know what the world needs? More games where you throw a tire iron at a bunch of hot girls who are hiding in the shower. Luckily the “Sorority Row” website has stepped up to the plate to fill the void in all our lives. Sure the controls are a little awkward but that’s part of the game's charm. I spent a solid hour playing the game before I could kill all five of the beauties.
