Happy New Year 2009

Happy New Year 2009!!!
I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays, and a very Happy New Year 2009. It will be a very special new years for horror fans with My Bloody Valentine 3D in January and Friday the 13th in February, and with many more to come. January 2009 also has The Unborn and The Uninvited.

UPDATES: My Bloody Valentine 3D

I am a big fan of the original My Bloody Valentine, and I always wished that there would be a sequel. There was once a rumor about a sequel to film, but it never came about. Now, we have the eagerly awaited remake from Lionsgate to come out Friday, January 16th 2009. Here is updated news on the release:

Released in 3D on only 900 screens :

According to a recent New York Times article, My Bloody Valentine 3D, will be screened in 3D on only about 900 screens in the United States. Why? Well, thats about all the screens that are currently equipped to show the new 3D movies. So, the rest of the "1600" or so prints will be shown in the regular 2D version.

Promotional Materials to promote My Bloody Valentine 3D :

Here in New York, My Bloody Valentine 3D from Lionsgate has the following promotional materials out and about:
* Teaser Poster - In theaters
* Regular OneSheet - In theaters
* Large Standee - In theaters
* NYC Subway poster - In subway stations
* NYC Bus ads - On sides of buses
* NYC Parking Garages - Large Posters near Parking Garage exits all around the city

Rob Zombie Officially Directing ’Halloween’ Sequel


Rob Zombie Officially Directing 'Halloween' Sequel

Rob Zombie is packing up and heading back to Haddonfield for H2, the sequel to his remake of John Carpenter's classic film from 1978. While other horror websites patronized us for reporting the story broke by Shock, it appears the egg is in their face as Zombie will return to both write and direct the sequel to HALLOWEEN for Dimension Films. Read on for the official news and full details on the deal. What do you guys think? Where should Zombie take the sequel?Dimension Films and Rob Zombie are teaming for another chapter of "Halloween," and he's racing to scare up the pic for release in October.Zombie will write and direct "H2," the sequel to his 2007 reinvention of the John Carpenter horror classic. Production will begin in March.
The new film picks up right as the first remake ended, following the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted.Zombie said it won't resemble the original second installment, as the "House of 1000 Corpses" helmer continues to take the franchise in different directions.Zombie took Carpenter's original and stamped it with an original storyline that treated Myers as a clinical psychopath. The film grossed $60 million domestically in 2007.Zombie had told Dimension chief and TWC co-chairman Bob Weinstein he wanted nothing to do with a sequel. But just like the franchise's villain, Zombie was compelled to come back."I was so burned out. (But) I took a long break, made a record and I got excited again," Zombie said. "Now, we'll be hauling ass, and that's the problem making a movie called 'Halloween': If you come out Nov. 1 or after, nobody cares. If it was called anything else, I'd be fine."Malek Akkad of Trancas Intl. Films will produce with Spectacle Entertainment's Andy Gould. Source: Variety By: MrDisgusting (
