Much like the characters implied by the title, Zombieland 2 keeps coming back to life. The original writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have been thinking about a sequel for years and eventually spun some of those ideas into a Amazon TV pilot. The show was not picked up, and most thought that was the end. Like a good zombie, however, the feature version of Zombieland 2 is now rising from the grave.
A new report says Sony Pictures has hired Dave Callaham, writer of the first two Expendables movies, to pen a sequel with Ruben Fleischer expected to return and direct. Read More »

Update: Lionsgate has released a Saw 10th anniversary re-release trailer and special poster promoting the event.
Lionsgate is set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of SAW by bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for a one-week run starting on Friday, October 31st with select screenings beginning Thursday night, October 30th. Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.

The Internet has created a lot of terrible things but Bad Lip Readings aren’t one of them. It’s one of the few online video trends that takes a lot of skill and can have absolutely hilarious, memorable and quotable results. Plus they have a very broad appeal. The first ones I remember seeing were of political figures saying the most off-the-wall, heinous and crazy things. Fun for the whole family.
One of the newest is an almost better juxtaposition. It’s a scene from the fourth season of The Walking Dead between Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Beth (Emily Kinney) that was originally about one thing and has been turned into a crazy party. Check out the funny Walking Dead Bad Lip Reading video below. Read More »
Fantastic Fest seems to have a bit less horror each year as the festival’s scope expands. At the same time, the horror at the fest is often pretty great. Take Shrew’s Nest (aka Musarañas), a Spanish film that is essentially gothic family drama… until it goes totally mental. I loved this movie in part because it is really nicely controlled until it goes bonkers, and also because it features one hell of a great lead performance from Macarena Gómez.
Gomez plays Montse, a woman who hasn’t left her apartment in many years. Some bad stuff in her family’s past left her damaged, and she simultaneously cares for and domineers over her younger sister. When a new presence enters the apartment, old tensions come to a very intense boil. Check out a Shrew’s Nest trailer below, and put this one on your radar now. Read More »

And now Vigalondo has penned an “old school-style Kaiju script” that he hopes to make, driven by practical effects rather than CG. Get the interesting and even surprising details about the Nacho Vigalondo kaiju project below. Read More »
