12 Movies for your Halloween Movie Marathon

Movie marathons are tricky business. Equal parts foresight, improvisation, impulse decision-making, and nostalgia that you really don’t have all that much control over in the long run. You can plan ahead all you want but the energy of a room can turn a slow-burn pee-pants fest into annoying background noise in no time. Add a holiday on top of things, say for example Halloween, and you got more problems than that Jay-Z character.

Neil Marshall, our friend who directed "The Descent", has been tapped to take the wheel on "The Last Voyage Of Demeter". The film tells the story the ship and crew that transported Dracula from Transylvania to London as told by the lone survivor of the voyage. I don't want to spoil anything... but scurvy.

Julianne Moore has been confirmed to be playing the nutso mother in the upcoming "Carrie" remake. Which is fun because she seems so nice so I kind of feel like even if she locked me in a closet for hours on end I wouldn't be so mad at her. Like those stupid Sour Patch Kids commercials. Awww she whipped me with a ruler but now she's making me pancakes.

Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss have been tapped for roles in a new film titled "Compulsion". The flick is a remake of a South Korean horror-comedy about two women who live next to each other and realize one is on a hefty bad luck streak while the other is finding herself overflowing with good luck. I assume Heather Graham will have the good luck because she's never made out with Keanu Reeves.

Michelle Monaghan who looks like a solid D cup has joined Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan in the cast of "The Coup", a new film about a family stuck in Southeast Asia during a coup. Maybe a large B actually. I don't know, they do amazing things with push up technology these days.

In Real People News: 

Fishermen in Germany are blaming swimmers who pee in their local pond for the 500 plus fish they found dead recently. Even I'm not that much of a monster to make the joke you're thinking of.

A Pennsylvania woman beat the holy living hell out of her husband during a fight over his facial hair. Which is funny because now he's probably going to go nuts when she doesn't clean. And the cycle will begin anew.

Take "The Descent" and replace the monsters with creepy guys and add in more pillowing fighting and you've got "The Hike", a new horror flick from the UK that's got a sassy new trailer out for your viewing pleasure. Yes it looks a movie that's been done before but did I mention pillow fights? Alright the trailer doesn't really have any but I like to think it's going to happen... I've got a good feeling.

The good people behind "Super 8" have done an awesome job at not giving away the "big surprise" of the movie but mother of god over the past few days they've released enough clips to make me wonder if they give a crap anymore. Case in point is this new 6 minute chunk that's hit the tubes. I'm hoping by Friday they release the entire movie in clip form so I don't have to pay to see it. Keep your fingers crossed.

A gaggle of new "Conan the Barbarian" posters have been released and while I know the movie is going to be garbage I can't help but be excited. Except for the one that looks like a poster for a new gay porn, that one I won't get excited for, because that's not my thing. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

For those of you who thought the original "The Human Centipede" was too tame I've got some exciting news for your sick asses. Tom Six's second film in the series titled "The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)" has officially been banned by the UK film board. Apparently it's full of all kinds of sexual deviant type activities and was just too graphic to receive any kind of rating. Are you turned on now? Yeah you are you sick SOB.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes the stress of being a parent gets to be too much and you don't know what to do. So you turn to the same solution that these parents from Illinois did. In other words you give up and just leave yours kids on the side of the road. Then you go to jail. That last part probably wasn't part of the plan.

Driving drunk with your kids inside of your SUV is awful. But driving drunk while you've got 11 kids stuffed inside your SUV, well that's just impressive. And awful, mostly awful. But at least 50% awesome.

New "The Descent: Part 2" Clip And Images

A new clip from “The Descent: Part 2” has gone online and this one has a puppy. Everybody loves a puppy. There isn’t much to see here, but I have to admit it got me. Take a look below and you’ll see what I mean.

You can also hop over to the films website and check out a bunch of new stills that have been posted. For extra added spooky effect the creators of the site have made is almost impossible to navigate. It’s scary!

"The Descent Part 2" Trailer

I think most people are in agreement that the first foray into the depths of "The Descent" resulted in a pretty kick ass and enjoyable movie. However, I don't know that anyone was particularly screaming for a sequel. Regardless, here's a trailer for it!
