Check out this tense, ambitious little short film, Vessel.

I was delighted to hear that Stephen King’s A Good Marriage is going to be adapted for film. The novella was one of four in the collection, Full Dark No Stars, and was my favorite of the batch. Like only King can, it takes a simple premise (wife finds out husband of 40+ years is a serial killer) and cranks the tension. I hope the film can do it justice. (Screen Daily)

Bjorn Stein and Mans Marlind, the duo behind Underworld: Awakening, join the 10-director line-up of Paris, I’ll Kill You. Other names attached are Xavier Gens, David R. Ellis, Paco Plaza, and Joe Dante. (Screen Daily)

The Rock as Lobo? Heh, that will be interesting… (Bleeding Cool)

Take a look at this juicy trailer for Art House Massacre! (Bloody Disgusting)

Trip out to this clip of Beyond the Black Rainbow. I know this will make some of you fall in love. (Bloody Disgusting)

It was revealed in an interesting bit of news that the next season of American Horror Story will take place in the 1960s. I think this will be an opportunity for the writers to fill in some interesting backstory. I’m excited. (Vulture)

Unsurprisingly, Guillermo del Toro’s next movie, Pacific Rim, sounds like it will kick some serious ass. (Marketsaw)

Bloody Disgusting interviewed Brad Parker, director of The Chernobyl Diaries.

Bloody-Disgusting treated us to a double dose of Asian horror trailers.

Fangoria interviews Oren Peli…and here’s part 2.
