The body-snatching subgenre of horror and science fiction is a particularly pliable one that can serve any number of purposes. This is the genre in which some kind of invading force, usually from beyond the stars, comes to Earth and starts taking over human hosts. It's a profoundly chilling thought: coworkers, loved ones, the friendly postal service person you tip every Christmas, are not who they once were. In some ways it's worse than turning into a vampire or a werewolf or a shambling undead zombie, because those all feature some level of physiological transformation. With the body snatcher subgenre, it's your unique you-ness that undergoes the mutation. With "Honeymoon," the subgenre, previously utilized to lampoon cultural movements and political parties, is placed into the intimate setting of a two-person relationship drama. It's a stroke of, if not genius, then at least insane cleverness.

Even though the rival project "Greetings From Tim Buckley" is in the can and if not finished, then pretty much nearly there, the filmmakers behind the Jeff Buckley biopic "Mystery White Boy" are choosing to make it right intead of fast. With the rights locked up to use Buckley's music, the blessing of his estate who are also involved with the film, and with rehearsals with already under way with lead Reeve Carney, this one is aiming to be the only Buckley movie you'll need to see, and they're adding a trio of strong talent.

Only a few weeks back, we were commenting on how the vampire genre, which has dominated the spookier side of cinema for the last several years, what with the likes of "Twilight" and "Let The Right One In," was seemingly giving up the ghost, as it were, with zombie movies suddenly dominating the news. On the back of the immense success of AMC's "The Walking Dead" and the recent horror-comedy "Zombieland," six projects were announced in the course of three weeks, adding to a whopping twenty already in development. Could there possibly be room for one more?
