Saw 8 is actually coming!

It's not often that a horror franchise flick that proclaims it's the "final chapter"actually ends the series. That's how we saw 3 more Freddy movies after FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE . Hell, FRIDAY THE 13TH has had  two  final chapters and is still going strong. But after  SAW: THE FINAL CHAPTER closed in 2010, scarcely a rumble was...

Have a totally normal conversation with Leigh Whannell in this Cooties clip

Although our very own Chris Bumbray wasn't a huge fan of COOTIES , each new clip makes the film seem a little more fun. This uncomfortably silly new scene, straight from Collider, depicts screenwriter Leigh Whannell (as social studies teacher Doug Davis) attempting to interact with his coworkers Elijah Wood and Alison Pill like a human being. Check out the...

Posters and promo images introduce the Cooties faculty

The horror/comedy COOTIES is a movie I was sold on as soon as I heard the insanity of its plot synopsis: When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The cast that directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion assembled to portray said misifit teachers...

Fans of the ghostly flick won't have to wait long to get their mitts on their own copy, because it's coming to Digital HD on September 22 and Blu-Ray and...

Face-Off: Insidious Chapter 2 Vs. Insidious Chapter 3

The conversation was quite vibrant in regard to our last start of summertime Face-Off which had Prom Night edging out I Know What You Did Last Summer. Some agreed that Jamie Lee's old school slasher had the style and scares to achieve victory, while some defended the evident fun to be found in Last Summer (despite it's crappy third act). All responses were much appreciated! For...
