This unused Texas Chainsaw concept art suggests an older take on Leatherface

So TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D came out a few weeks back. I, personally, have yet to check it out but the film has certainly garnered mixed reviews. While the consensus seems to lean towards "dumb fun," many fans have been critical of the film's plot inconsistencies-- namely, how in the hell does Leatherface not age from 1974 to 2013? Apparently the producers of TC3D factored this in during...

Tom Cruise is running from something in this new Oblivion pic

OBLIVION looks like the post-apocalyptic bee's knees. The sci-fi actioner will surely wow us with the always reliable Tom Cruise, dynamic direction from TRON: LEGACY's Joseph Kosinski, and Morgan Freeman's ability to look badass while wearing sunglasses (see above). What else do you need to get you primed for this flick? How about a prerequisite shot of Tom Cruise running? Yes,...

Timed to coincide with the Sundance premiere of S-V/H/S, last year's anthology horror hit will be arriving on its titular format in North America. Though there are few details regarding the VHS release of V/H/S, we do have a nice...

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero has a composer

Is there a reason to get excited about CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO? The second entry didn't exactly set the world on fire and the first entry in the series seems like distant memory in Eli Roth's career. Does anyone out there actually think this prequel going to be anything more than an unnecessary cash grab? If so, your argument will soon by aided by this latest bit of news....

Gremlins is being rebooted?

Stop me if you've heard this one-- there's a rumor going around that maybe, just maybe, GREMLINS is on the chopping block for a reboot. Before you get excited and/or pissed, take this one with a grain of salt-- it's from the same folks who reported Zach Snyder's STAR WARS/SEVEN SAMURAI mash-up earlier this week. Still, they've been right in the past, so we should probably give...

Case in point-- during a recent concert he was joined onstage by none other than PLANET OF THE APES franchise star Dr. Zauis.
