Director Mark Hartley‘s remake of Patrick is looking pretty good so far. In October, Patrick hits the Stiges Film Festival and hopefully makes a big splash. Richard E.

Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is now at the halfway point of filming as announced by Tommy Wirkola via his Twitter account. As a treat to his fans, Wirkola has dropped a behind the scenes still showing off a very brainy zombie. The zombie horror film originally had the tagline of “War of the Dead”. This sequel will pickup right after the first ended and the sole survivor will be aided by a gang of U.S. zombie killers to fight off the Nazi zombies. The zombie film stars Martin Starr (This Is the End), Ingrid Haas (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), and Jocelyn Deboer (Inside Amy Schumer).
The Hunted is directed by Josh Stewart and has a killer tagline; “Will Do To The Woods What Jaws Did To The Ocean”. Those are mighty big claims to be throwing around in this day and age. Everyone builds a little hype around their movie but you have to be careful not to over-hype the movie else you have many folks left disappointed. I for one am extremely interested in finding out what the creature is. Hope they do not toy with us till the bitter end and show some crazy reflected of some random surface image of the creature; those type of movies really let me down. The trailer looks pretty fresh and really sets a high expectation of this new horror movie.
Toby Stephens and Caity Lotz star in new sci-fi movie The Machine. Check out the new poster that states “They Rise, We Fall”. Gloomy indeed and somewhere on level with a Terminator type plot I suppose but may be a gem waiting to be watched. A U.S. distributor has picked up the movie but no word has been officially announced on who just yet.
Vin Diesel’s Riddick had better kill it at the Box Office. We have three new clips for Riddick that show scenes that were recently released in trailers in full form. First is the scene where Riddick is all tied up and says that he will “kill everyone”. Next up we have the clip where Riddick is to be executed but instead kicks the guy flying to the opposite side of the room before performing a fatality, had to say that one. Last clip has Riddick battling a monster/creature finishing up with yet another fatality, love it! Look out for Riddick in theaters this upcoming September 6, 2013.
Ryan Buell, the founder of the Paranormal Research Society has officially announced a comeback to A&E’s Paranormal State. If you are unfamiliar with the paranormal soaked TV series, Ryan and his team help people plagued by demons and other malevolent spirits. Boy; do they come across some crazy situations. I myself am a big fan and find myself watching random old episodes on Netflix since the last new episode aired about 2 years ago.

What are your thoughts on this?
