After a great deal of success at the festivals, it seems like the Soska Sisters’ American Mary will make its way onto U.S. soil courtesy of Xlrator Media’s Screamfest Label in Fall 2013. (Fangoria)

Speaking of release dates, Rob Zombie’s witch hunt thriller Lords of Salem is due to come out April, 26th, 2013. As an added bonus, it looks like there will be a novelization released a month before, penned by Zombie and co-author B.K. Evenson. (Fangoria)

Check out the poster for the upcoming Troma sequel, Return to Nuke ‘Em High. (Fangoria)

Last week saw the release of the Greenband trailer for The ABCs of Death.

Nearly half a year before del Toro’s monsters versus robots film, Pacific Rim, is released, it looks like the studio already has a sequel in the works. (Hollywood Reporter)

The Ethan Hawke starring scifi slasher, The Purge, just got an updated synopsis. Sounds pretty wicked to me. Head over to for the full rundown.

V/H/S hit DVD and Blu-Ray (but not VHS L) on December 4th, and the filmmakers shared some insight into each of their segments over at Bloody Disgusting.

Silent-Night-Movie-Poster-smThose of us awaiting a film adaptation of Stephen King’s time travel novel, 11/22/63, may be waiting a little longer than expected. Jonathan Demme is no longer attached due to creative differences with King during the writing of the screenplay. The book is multilayered and content-heavy, so I’d imagine that it’d be hard to adapt into a two hour film. I hope this doesn’t mean its postponed indefinitely. (Indiewire)

Genre favorite Malcom McDowell sat down with Bloody Disgusting to discuss the making of the Silent Night remake, and talks a little bit about Stanley Kubrick and the film that made McDowell famous, A Clockwork Orange.
