Just when you thought you couldn’t be any more excited for John Dies at the End, Bloody Disgusting got its hands on this badass poster for the film’s premiere at TIFF. (Bloody Disgusting)

Looks like legendary director Wes Craven is spreading his awesomeness to the world of comic books. His collaboration with Steve Niles of 30 Days of Night fame is called Coming of Rage, and looks very promising. The best part about this is that we’re also getting a movie. (Deadline)

We’ve waited a while for the full trailer for Paranormal Activity 4. Now we’ve got it, courtesy of Bloody Disgusting. What does everyone think?

Regardless of what you thought of Prometheus, it definitely left viewers with a lot to talk about. With the sequel just confirmed for either 2014 or 2015, it will be interesting to see if the level of hype the first one garnered could be built up again. (Hollywood Reporter)

Well, it’s official. No Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters 3. Not like those of us who’ve been following the film’s development didn’t see that coming or anything… (Bloody Disgusting)

Russell Crowe as Roland of Gilead in the Dark Tower adaptation? Um, yes, please! (Deadline)

Check out some cool concept art from the long-delayed Hellraiser remake. Whether we want it or not, those are some pretty cool images. (Geek Tyrant)

Check out the wicked cool trailer for Boneboys, the new one from Texas Chainsaw Massacre cowriter Kim Henkel. (Fangoria)

Looks like American Horror Story’s second season has a cute little subtitle. Asylum! (Deadline)

In the spirit of the Olympics, I figured I’d post this delightfully strange video of sync swimming done to the music of Goblin.
