blood runs cold

When the summer season comes to an end, I love to check out new horror flicks to mix into my Halloween season rotation of favorites. A possible candidate? The Swedish slasher flick "Blood Runs Cold". First time feature film director Sonny Laguna, brings us this ultra low budget slasher flick, which was shot for just $5,000 US. The plot is a typical slasher set up, having our main character, Winona, vacationing in a remote location just as a storm's a brewing. As usual, a killer is lurking nearby, waiting to chop her and her friends up with an axe.

Here's a gang of new shots from Anthony Hopkins' new film "The Rite" which comes out on January 28th. The film revolves around a skeptical student at an exorcism school and features the most disappointing panty raid you've ever seen.

Now sit down kids and I'll tell you about how video games used to be played on the PC and were mostly just a lot of pointing and clicking. And by far my favorite of the genre was "7th Guest" which will be landing on your iPhone and iPad in the near future. Of course I never saw a reason to have an iPad until now and I refuse to pay for one just to play a 20 year old game, but still, this is awesome news.

Joe R. Lansdale, the guy who wrote "Bubba Ho Tep" among other things, will see his heartwarming zombie story "Christmas with the Dead" made into a movie sometime next year. Yet more proof that if you wait long enough you'll never have to read another book again.

Here's a trailer for the Swedish ax murderer flick "Blood Runs Cold". Apparently the film was shot on a budget of just 5k, but honestly it looks so good you can hardly tell. Which is a bummer because I wanted nothing more in this world than to make some sarcastic comments about the Swedes. You win this round!
