As we’ve previously mentioned, “The ABCs of Death” is an intriguing little omnibus horror anthology project that Drafthouse Films and Magnet are putting together, featuring a bold mix of modern horror talent like Ben Wheatley (“The Kill List”), Ti West (“House of the Devil”), Jason Eisner (“Hobo With a Shotgun”), Nacho Vigalando (“Timecrimes”), Srdjan Spasojevic (“A Serbian Film”), and twenty others. The concept is simple, the film will feature 26 vignettes from 26 directors each dedicated to a letter describing a manner of dying, while “a linking device will open, connect and close” each short, according to the official website. However, one slot has been left open for an amateur filmmaker to get their claim to fame.

While there has been much hand-wringing over native and post-converted 3D, no one in their wildest imagination could have guessed that last summer "Piranha 3D" would take in over $80 million worldwide. While the news kept James Cameron up at night, the smash success of the low brow horror flick threw pundits for a loop, bucking conventional thought that audiences only want high grade, "Avatar"-like experiences if they pay premium dollars to wear those glasses at the multiplex. It turns out, 3D blood and boobs works too.

Considering it was made on a shoestring budget, as part of Paramount's "micro-budget" shingle Insurge, "The Devil Inside" has probably already made it's cost on pre-sales, so it's likely no one at the studio particularly cares if this entry in the exorcism genre has absolutely nothing new to say.

The "Hostel" franchise was never any great piece of cinematic art. It basically just got a bunch of attractive young people together and then tortured them all for our cinematic "pleasure." But as low rent as the series has been so far, the upcoming direct-to-DVD sequel is far more shallow and lame-brained than even we would have expected.

You put out one remake of an '80s movie during a slow weekend, and it’s not a big deal. You put out remakes of two niche early '80s hits on the same weekend, and audiences get the message. This weekend was the clearest example yet of studios offering reheated product, one of which was remains in public memory as a punch line, the other as a cult classic that was ignored by critics and audiences upon its initial release. At least they weren’t expensive.

Kick off your Sunday shoes, dear readers, this weekend it's time to cut loose with "Footloose." And what's that? It's a remake-tastic weekend with "The Thing" also in theaters, if you enjoy your '80s nostalgia with body inhabiting aliens instead of nubile dancing teens. Also, Señor Almodóvar's latest, "The Skin I Live In," and the funnymen trio of Martin, Wilson and Black in "The Big Year."

Like we said yesterday about Emma Watson stepping out boldly in her post-"Harry Potter" career, same goes for Daniel Radcliffe. The actor, who has done a couple of small films in between the 'Potter' pics and earned raves on stage in "Equus" and "How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying," is set to taking his first leading role now that he's all grown up, in the horror film "The Woman In Black."

It seems no one wants to be a summer movie anymore, at least not in July 2013. Yesterday, "Thor 2" moved from its summer date to November 15, 2013 and now, another major movie is changing gears.

Review: 'The Thing' Lamely Inhabits John Carpenter's Original & Turns Into A Generic Monster Movie

"The Thing" arrives this weekend as a prequel to John Carpenter's masterful 1982 film, that aims to theoretically expand on the story presented nearly three decades ago by telling us what happened at the Norwegian compound that first housed the alien infection that then spread to the American base. But perhaps it should be no surprise that screenwriter Eric Heisserer, the man behind "Final Destination 5" and the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" reboot, has little imagination or ability to bring anything new to the table. So what we end up with is a strange hybrid of a movie, one that is oddly slavishly devoted to Carpenter's original, but when given the chance to put its own stamp on the material, falls back on tried and true genre antics. To put in perspective just how at odds this prequel and Carpenter's film really are, the 1982 film starts in a panic in a sequence that ends up with a guy getting dramatically shot in the face -- Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.'s movie kicks off with crude sex joke.

While fans and followers of John Carpenter's seminal "The Thing" are quick to dismiss anything that dares to touch the hallowed material of the horror maestro, even the strictest purists have to admit to at least a morbid curiosity in Matthijs van Heijiningen Jr.’s forthcoming prequel to the 1982 film.
