In worrisome news, the upcoming "Nightmare on Elm Street" remake is heading back under the lens for re-shoots after recent test screenings. So far it looks like it will only affect a small diner scene that doesn't involve Freddy, but re-shoots are never a good sign.

The fourth installment for the "Resident Evil" franchise, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" has been pushed back to January 2011. If you're curious for behind the scenes action on this 3D sequel, be sure to follow Milla Jovovich on Twitter as she tweets her way through the shooting of the film.

Good news for you "Dexter" fans; thanks in large part to John Lithgow, the fourth season of the show continues to set records for Showtime. This past Sunday's episode pulled in over 2.1 million viewers. You can pretty much count on our favorite little sociopath coming back next season.

From the laugh out loud news desk, Brittany Murphy has been fired from the upcoming thriller "The Caller", mere days into shooting. She's now officially been replaced by "Twilight" vixen Rachelle LeFevre.

We can finally put to rest one worry about the upcoming "Wolfman", asthe MPAA has officially given the movie an R rating for bloody horror, violence and gore!

We're still about 4 months out from the release of "The Wolfman" but Universal has tossed up another "behind the scenes" video for your viewing pleasure. At this point they've given so much away that by the time the film actually comes out I expect to see a documentary about Benicio Del Toro's bowel movements while on the set. I can't wait.

While you wait for him to pass that bran muffin you can check out the latest clip at this link.

"The Wolfman", due in theaters February 12th, becomes even more worrisome as the studio brings in a new editor late in the development. With reshoots, new editors and the like, is there any hope of this being a good film? (Editor's Note: NO)

Have you been thinking to yourself, "Boy, I wish Brittany Murphy would do a horror movie!" Well, then you're in luck as the trailer for her new direct to video scare "Deadline" hits the web.

Did you like that Brittany Murphy news? Well guess what, I'm going to blow your mind. She has a second horror film coming out in limited theaters December 4th called "Across the Hall" and lucky you, you can watch the trailer right here!

Is it horror? Not really. Is it pretty cool? Yah, kind of. Is it too late to add to your Christmas list to Santa? Let's hope not. Minimates releases a new series of "Ghostbusters" figures, and they look so cute!

Director Tim Sullivan has had a busy news day. Not only has he announced that the sequel to his "2001 Maniacs" remake has the new title of "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams", he has also released three new pictures from the movie. The most important items of note is that Robert Englund has been replaced by Bill Mosely, and Christa Campbell in a milkmaid costume.

In quite possibly the oddest news of the day, The Weather Channel has announced it will be adding movies to its channel lineup. Starting out with a showing of "A Perfect Storm" on Oct. 30th, the lineup shows that it will be a weekly string of weather themed movies. Most notable to us horror fans is Stephen King's "Misery", because of the snow.

From the unexpected and unwanted reboot desk comes word that a script for a new "Crow" movie has been turned in and the studios dig it. Written by Stepehn Norrington who helmed "Blade", the movie is said to not be a remake but a whole new character.

Dread Central has posted a slew of new "Stan Helsing" clips, and I still remain unexcited!

We’re still six months away from seeing Benicio Del Toro running around the screen in “The Wolf Man” but today the trailer has hit the web. The film is an update on the 1966 Lon Chaney Jr. classic and from the looks of things will do the original justice.

Little birdies are telling me that the trailer for "The Wolfman" will be hitting the internet today. However since I get up at the crack of dawn like an old man, it's not up yet. Check back for updates???

ABC is at the top of the heap when it comes to picking up "Clive Barker's Hotel", the series being written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. It also turns out that McG's production company is in talks to produce, with the possibility that old G might take a hand at directing down the line.

A movie that doesn't exist yet, "Resident Evil: Afterlife", has a release date set for August 27th, 2010. That's a little more than a year away.

Say what you will about the people behind "Saw", they they sure know how to make awesome posters.

Because we did it so well the first time, it looks like Legendary Pictures are in talks to bring back an Americanized version of “Godzilla”. While this news is quite maddening, what's really aggravating is how every movie news outlet that has picked up the story has used the headline “GODZILLA ROARS AGAIN!”. Seriously, guys? Maybe I expect too much for a guy with the moniker of “Mr. Disgusting”.

So, if the “Godzilla” news didn't screw up your morning, well, here you go: MGM has put the remake of “Poltergeist” on the fast track. Here's to hoping that the new Carol Anne lives to be 13!

Even though the movie won't be ready for another 37 years, Universal has released some new stills for The Wolfman. Is it just me or does Benicio Del Toro look like a cross between an almost transformed werewolf and Jet Li?

Is it weird that I've jerked-off to this video twice now?
