On March 11th the much anticipated "Red Riding Hood" hits theaters around the country and the world may never be the same. From the trailer and previews it looks like we're being sold a "Twilight" style film with a doe eyed Amanda Seyfried prancing around the woods being harassed by a wolf. So the obvious question comes to mind, should we cover this film for the Podcast? On one side of the fence is the argument that this is a horror film and should be covered by a horror podcast.

I don't want to say I'm some kind of god that can see into the future but here's the trailer for "Red Riding Hood" and as I predicted it looks like a pile of turds. Of course the words "From the director of 'Twilight'" attached to it might be considered a giveaway but if you want to call me the Nostradamus of crappy movies I'm not going to argue.

Here's a new one sheet for the long awaited indie film "Job". The story revolves around a group of priests who are hiding a secret only to be terrorized by "the Dark Christ". I assume that means the devil. It's got to be, right? Oh god have I stumbled upon some sort of weird racist propaganda movie?

Daniel Stamm, the guy who directed "The Last Exorcism", has been confirmed to be taking the helm of the English remake of "Martyrs". In other news, I'm finally going to see "Martyrs"! Once they make an English language version of it that is.

And I couldn't go a full week without some Nic Cage in my life. His new film "Drive Angry" in which he... well he drives a car real angry like, has been slapped with an R rating. When's the last time Mr. Cage was in an R rated movie? Was it that one where he tried to drink himself to death? I hope he tries to drink himself to death while driving in this one. Next level!

Satires are a delicate beast. They have to walk a fine line between capturing the original story and lampooning their subject with well crafted humor that is pertinent to the source. Sadly, in the realm of horror comedies, this fine art was mostly thrown to the wayside a long time ago.

I'll be upfront and honest here; I've never seen the source material that "Vampires Suck" has sunk it's teeth into. I don't have any intentions to watch the "Twilight" films any time soon, either, so there is a chance that some of the humor here is completely lost on me.

All the big Twilight fans have picked sides by now. All the kids who like beefy werewolves have picked Jacob and anyone who enjoys crying themselves to sleep with eyeliner on have picked Edward. But what about us who don't wear black nail polish? Who do we pick!? Well the good people over at Fright Rags have offered up an option for us. Team David! As in David from everyone's favorite 80's vampire flick "The Lost Boys". And from the shirts design it looks like David is pissed.

Hollywood loves its unnecessary remakes, so it shouldn't be too surprising that they are looking at Pascal Laugeir's "Martyrs" for the official treatment. What is surprising is that "Twilight" producer Wyck Godfrey is looking at Kristin Stewart to headline.

Breck Eisner thrilled us all with his remake of "The Crazies" and is moving on to some non-horror related fare such as "Escape From New York" and "Flash Gordon". He'll be making his way back to the horror work though as he has taken on the rights to the classic Dracula comic "Blood of the Innocent".

Joe Lynch's upcoming horror comedy "The Knights of Badassdom" just got a whole lot hotter as "Firefly" alum Summer Glau signs on to the cast.

Need some more Sam and Dean Winchester in your life? You better hope so as Warner Brothers Japan is preparing 22 episode "Supernatural: The Animation"! Details on the new show are scarce at this time, but the official site talks of recreating some of the fan favorite episodes of the series as well as some new adventures mixed in.

If you've ever found yourself wondering how best to survive such things as unstoppable serial killers, zombies or any other supernatural force, be sure to check out How To Survive the Strange. The first episode told us the handy uses of your standard claw hammer, the second episode tells you how you can use ESP to fix household appliances!

Summit Entertainment is branching off a bit from its money printing "Twilight" franchise as it signs on for "Golden Gate". Said to be in the vein of such films as "Single White Female", we see a track star who has found herself a new girlfriend, only to find out that she's just a wee bit insane.

Katee Sackhoff is preparing for a post "Battlestar" appearance as pictures from her upcoming werewolf vs. Fight Club feature "Growl" appear online. Though the idea of Chuck Liddell Vs. The Wolfman is indeed entertaining, the director's name Sxv'Leithan Essex sounds by far more intriguing.

Mellissa George is preparing to thrill us once again as the official Facebook page and first shots from her new feature "A Lonely Place to Die" appears on line. Ms. George and a few of her friends head to the Scottish Highlands for some hiking fun only to find themselves wrapped up in a kidnapping plot? Sounds like fun to me.
