The German poster for Mandy Lane is just more proof that this film should go theatrical, now. Will we ever see this one on the big screen? I guess only time will tell.

Platinum Dunes has an official site, and it's part of Bloody-Disgusting.com. Platinum Dunes is the company behind a slate of recent remakes, from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" to "Friday the 13th". Also, possible conflict of interest there? Um... yes.

June 3rd will see a Blu-Ray release of "Cloverfield" by Paramount Home Entertainment. Gotta love a big blockbuster film shot on a camcorder getting a hi-def release. It's a weird and wonderful world we live in people.

After winning a few BAFTA Cymru Awards, Julian Richards ("The Last Horror Movie") latest film "Summer Scars" has been snatched up for distro in the US by TLA films. The film, from the synopsis, sort of sounds like a mix between "Stand By Me" and "The Hitcher". "The Last Horror Movie" was a great little indie flick by way of "Man Bites Dog" so I'm definitely looking forward to what Richards has up his sleeve next.

On this day in history: 

1993: During a quarterfinals match in Hamburg, deranged tennis fan Gunter Parche sneaks up on Monica Seles and stabs her in the back with a boning knife. Parche was just paving the way for Steffi Graf, whom he was actively stalking, to take the top ranking from Seles. His plan succeeds.
