the rob zombie hype machine

Your latest "Fright Night" remake news, straight from McLovin's mouth. It will be rated R. Man, that was exciting, wasn't it?

Wes Craven seems to have been attending the Rob Zombie school of marketing your movie in the 21st century. Or at least I assume so, based on the flood of BTS video and pictures hitting the internet since the film started shooting... YESTERDAY. I don't think I can handle this every day leading up to the projected 2011 release date.

Neil Marshal talks about his next project after "Centurion". Something something something, "bodies exploding", "3D", "produced by Sam Raimi". That's the gist, anyway.

So as Casey mentioned this morning the DVD for Rob Zombie's "Halloween II" will feature an alternate ending to the film. Well thanks to the good people over at Shocktillyoudrop.com you don't have to wait for your Netflix to arrive.

MTV announces plans and casting info for their upcoming "Teen Wolf" TV series adaptation. Yes, you read that right.

Out promoting her upcoming movie "Avatar" that you may have heard of, Sigourney Weaver drops some possible plot bombs pertaining to "Ghostbusters 3". These are pretty juicy details, so I will leave them out of this post. If you're intrigued as to the future of Peter Venkman and Oscar the baby? Be sure to click through.

It is curious to think what would have become of "Where the Wild Things Are" if Mr. Zombie had gotten a hold of it. He has added much awful to our beloved awesome things and it is going to be interesting in the future to see a "Blob" movie without a big blobby thingy.

All of that aside, G4 put together this little adventure into the "what if's" with a dreadlocked Zombie reading from his version of the beloved children's book. The actual story I found a little silly as the rhyming gets redundant, but the pauses inbetween are what made me laugh the most.

Over the past two years, Rob Zombie has been making waves in the movie world with his renditions of "Halloween" and "Halloween 2". One of his lesser known side projects has been his adventures in the world of comics. Just as is the case with his films, his comic book ventures have had both detractors and fans. One of the products to come out of this experiment of his is the character of El Superbeasto, the foul mouthed and over sexed luchadore hero.

We return to talk about what might be the worst weekend for horror in 2009, when both "Halloween 2" and "The Final Destination" dropped on unsuspecting audiences.

Labor Day, while an awesome excuse to lay around and do nothing for three days, is about as fallow a film going period as you'll find on the calendar. Just two years ago, "Halloween" set a new four-day weekend record with $30 million. Some weekends, that wouldn't even qualify for 2nd place, but on Labor Day it's a record.
