Mainstream horror, in my opinion, is currently going through one of the worst creative droughts since the 90's. Over the past twelve months, genre fans have been subjected to one low-budget, direct-to-video sequel after another as shady producers and opportunistic studios attempt to cash in on previous successes.

Toby Wilkins directed one of the best horror films of 2008, "Splinter", a film just recently released on DVD after a limited theatrical run. Coming up in May, he'll also be taking on the latest in the "Grudge" franchise, so he sat down with us recently to talk about both films. Check it out.

Two new "Ju-On" sequels are set to hit Japan this year. The series, which spawned the US remake "The Grudge" and its sequel, is wildly popular in Japan and has inspired countless sequels and interations.
