One month after we released IT'S JASON VOORHEES!, our first foray into video remixes of classic horror movies, BGH is releasing the second one into the world.  Behold, AQUAPHOBIA!, a trippy hip hop remix of Steven Spielberg's seminal horror film JAWS, set to a track by DJ AtomAnt. So grab your sizzurp, and vibe out to some nautical nastiness.

This week we ride the nostalgia train back to 1979 and JJ Abram's summer blockbuster "Super 8".

Oh boy oh boy! Amar'e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks if currently in discussions to sign on as an executive producer for the "The Strangers 2". I know, a Basketball player and a horror movie. Sounds like a perfect fit! Maybe some of his teammates can take on the acting roles. It'll be like those episodes of "Saturday Night Live" where an athlete hosts and no one watches.

Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games, recently sat down to discuss the much talked about "Bioshock" movie that everyone has pretty much given up on. According to Kenny though there's still a possibility and he'd be happy to see a movie be made. Of course based on the interview it sounds like there is no progress whatsoever but who knows. He then went on to use the word "pieces" so many times that I assume he was sitting in a room with a group of people who had agreed to do a shot every time he said it.

If I heard one consistent comment about Trent Haaga's "Deadgirl" it's that all the necrophilia is great but why isn't the picture quality better?! Well good news, you sick pervert who should be locked up, the 2008 sleepy hit is findings it's way to Blu-Ray on August 30th. For those of you not familiar with the movie it's about a couple of kids who find a living dead girl strapped to a table in an abandoned hospital and eventually end up having sex with her. I immediately regret telling you all that.

It's a slow day and everyone here at the BGH office has already taken off for the weekend so here's another new poster for "Super 8" which leads me to believe they're not even bothering to not make this movie look like "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" anymore. Of course Steve Spielberg is the producer of the J.J. Abrams joint so maybe the two were at a bar one night and Abrams was complaining about Third Kind and Spielberg got sick of it and just said "well you try to make it better, prick!". What the hell do I know though.

Columbia Pictures has announced that "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D" will hit theaters on February 17, 2012. I haven't received any sort of official memo from my office but I assume we'll be closed for the day in honor of this glorious event. Unless of course you're not going to see it in 3D, you only get a long lunch break then.

A gaggle full of new "Troll Hunter" clips have found their way online and they're full of troll goodness. For those of you not familiar with the film just think "The Blair Witch Project" but with trolls and without all the snot. Upgrade!

Elle Fanning and Kyle Chandler are the first two cast members to be confirmed in the J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg collaboration flick "Super 8". The film is rumored to be about a group of kids who film their high jinks on a super 8 camera in the 70's only to discover an alien in the film years later. I wonder if the same thing will happen 30 years from now when I finally watch my wedding video.

Some new stills of the new film "The Mortician" staring the one and only Method Man have been released. Did I mentioned the film is going to be in 3D? It's really implied at this point but I thought you'd be excited to know that you're going to get to see Method Man jump out of the screen and into your lap. Sinner.

Everybody's been talking about the upcoming "Scream IV". With the original creative team involved, it has the potential to be good. Things could be taking a turn for the odd however as sources say they are now in talks to bring Jamie Kennedy back for the reunion. As for how, nobody is certain yet. Could he be a zombie? An evil twin? At this point in the game, he could easily play his original character Randy's chubbier dad!

While still firmly in the 'non-news' category, original "Jaws" producer Richard Zanuck still has a few words to say that might make your stomachs turn. In a recent L.A. Times article, Zanuck talks about how he and Spielberg met a few years back about bringing the original film back to theaters with updates effects and tacked on 3D graphics. Sadly, Zanuck still thinks this would be a great idea.

Kevin Smith is finally getting around to working on his long talked about "Red State" horror feature. Recently, he sat down with the folks at Film School Rejects to discuss a few details about the film. Likening the plot and feel of the movie to that of "Race With the Devil", a 1975 film about cultists chasing hapless tourists, he promises you can replace the devil worshipers with christian fundamentalists!
