"The Crazies" director Breck Eisner has the bug for remakes. The director has signed on for his next project, a remake of David Cronenbergs "The Brood".

A new clip arrives online of the upcoming "Solomon Kane", giving us the first glimpse of James Purefoy in the title role.

With the success of "Paranormal Activity", it was only a matter of time before The Asylum sunk their claws into the subject matter. For your viewing pleasure, here is their low budget plot borrowing, "Paranormal Entity"

Speaking of "Paranormal Activity", do you need even more of the story? How about the first five pages of the upcoming IDW Comic Adaption entitled "Paranormal Activity: The Search for Katie"?

Although I wasn't thoroughly impressed with the first trailer for Breck Eisner's upcoming remake of George A. Romero's 1973 shocker "The Crazies," the latest clip is definitely a little more effective. For whatever reason, I happen to think Timothy Olyphant is a decent actor, and it's good to see him recovering from the atrocity that was "Hitman." For those who are arriving late to the proverbial party, "The Crazies" chronicles the outbreak of a mysterious disease which turns ordinary, everyday suburban schlubs into blood-thirsty killing machines. Survivors try to escape, the government tries to keep everyone contained, and all Hell tries to break loose. If all goes according to plan, the film will infect your tender senses on February 26th, 2010. Check out the trailer below.

John Landis steps into the producer's chair for a new serial killer movie aptly titled Some Guy Who Kills People. Even odder than the title, the film will be directed by "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus" director Jack Perez.

The marketing machine for Breck Eisner's "The Crazies" remake is kicking into gear with two new viral marketing sites that just launched.

The first dates for the the midnight movie re-release of Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" have been announced. While the list is small, more dates are expected to be announced soon.

New screenshots of the long delayed "Splatterhouse" game remake are now online. At first glance, it looks like the wait will be well worth it.

Need some Joel Schumacher directed horror? Then check out the official trailer for "Blood Creek".

Platinum Dunes, in their Bloody Disgusting-sponsored blog (HMMMMMM...), has announced that Friday the 13th Part 2 will be released on August 13, 2010. So how does that work? How does a film website, which published reviews on a regular basis, sponsor a blog for a studio? Isn't that akin to “payola”? When asked, Mr. Disgusting had this to say: “Brah, we here at Bloody Disgusting pride ourselves on honest, no bullshit reviews and we will always stand by that. So, with that being said, the NEW NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET IS TEH GREATEST HORROR MOVIE OF ALL TIME BUY FOUR TICKETS FOR YOURSELF AND THE TSHIRT AT HOT TOPIC!!!”

One of the few things I have ever agreed with Eric about, besides Asian chicks, is that the original Crazies is a pretty entertaining, chilling movie. I am looking forward to the remake but am far too lazy to upload this Apple trailer and watch it. Eh...the poster looks good though.

According to Variety, Sam Raimi is launching a family friendly sub-Ghost House imprint called Spooky Films. Their first movie will be The Substitute, directed by Scott Derrickson who looks like a reject from Tool Academy. Seriously, Google this douche's picture. This news follows on the heels of Disney's news that they are teaming with Guillermo del Toro to form a production company called, ahem...Double Dare You. Really, guys? Really?

Everyone disagrees with Eric on "The Crazies", but at least we all loved "Star Trek". That counts for something, right?

If you can get over the MTV induced douche-chills this video may give you, it's actually a pretty decent BTS look at "The Crazies" remake, which wrapped filming about a month ago. This is the first real look we've had of the film.

Next week's podcast will feature a review of the original, George Romero classic "The Crazies" from 1973. Stay tuned!
