It’s interesting to look at the state of horror these days. Thankfully it’s fairly strong in numbers with releases happening every month. If you'll pardon the digression, my two cents on the state of horror helps to explain my feelings on "Stitches" more accurately.

Yes, I'm back with another hybrid of horror and nerd-ism! And this one made me cream my jeans!

If you're like me, and had been putting off buying the latest Mortal Kombat, you may want to go get your wallet: Freddy Krueger has been announced a downloadable fighter - and he has some of the best fatalities I've seen. This is awesome. Rumor has it, that if enough sales are generated from this, they'll look into adding more playable horror characters.

As BGH re-visits the horror podcast classics, I'm continuing the theme with my first horror obsession - Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street". You know the story - the kids of Elm Street are being visited in their dreams by scarred man in a fedora, a green & red striped sweater and a gloved hand with razor fingers. The movie continually blurs the line between reality & dream as the teens are picked off one by one - because if you die in your dream.... you die for real.

If you're as excited about the upcoming Fall TV season's I am... and that's not even sarcasm, you'll be giddy to know that Robert Englund will be appearing on the Halloween episode of "Chuck". He'll be playing a guest at Chuck's Halloween party and will be dressed as Freddy Krueger, but here's the twist... it's a slutty Freddy Krueger!

Word around campus is Universal has agreed to produce three films and a TV shows based on Stephen King's seven Dark Tower novels. None other then Ron Howard has signed on to direct the first film and TV series and if I knew how to read I'd be wetting myself with excitement right now.

And lastly today we have the first trailer for "Zombie Roadkill". If you couldn't guess by the title the film is about our furry little splattered roadside friends that come back to life and take revenge on some unsuspecting drivers. Looks like a hoot!

With "Hot Tub Time Machine" being a moderate success, director Steve Pink is taking aim at a horror comedy for his next project. "The Werewolves of Reseda" will chronicle the suburban lives of werewolves and how it makes their lives better.

With today's rough economy, even our favorite screen stars are feeling the pinch. That's why you can now find Jason, Freddy and Chucky in recent Burger King ads.

According to Production Weekly, "Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov will be tackling a classic as he has signed on to direct "The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein". A recent novel by Peter Ackroyd, the story tells of the days when Victor Frankenstein meets the lovely poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Frank Darabont must be doing something right as AMC has ordered up six episodes of "The Walking Dead", which has yet to begin filming or even cast its main star.

This image is a lot like an onion. There are many layers to it and if you stare at it long enough, it's probably going to make you cry.

In a recent interview, Neve Campbell drops hints that Wes Craven may indeed be back for "Scream 4". While not official, it could be good news for this franchise reboot.

Rueben Fleischer, director of "Zombieland" reveals in a recent interview that 3D is a definite possibility for the planned sequel.

Stephen King lets slip to David Cronenburg that he has ideas percolating for a sequel to his classic "The Shining". With King however, that could still be decades away.
