Bloody Disgusting sat down to interview Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan on the tragedies and triumphs of working on Piranha 3DD.

The genre lost a favorite on September 3rd with the passing of actor Michael Clarke Duncan. He was best known for his role as John Coffey in Stephen King’s The Green Mile. (CBS)

Now, that’s pretty cool. Jason Blum, producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, is opening a haunted house attraction in Los Angeles. Sure to feature scary children and malevolent sheets. (Bloody Disgusting)

It’s official. Filming has begun on Curse of Chucky. I don’t know about the rest of you, but hearing Brad Dourif’s voice coming out of a tiny doll will never get old for me so I’m more than okay with this. (Bloody Disgusting)

Daniel Radcliffe’s costars are lining up for Alexander Aja’s adaptation of Horns by Joe Hill. (Variety)

Due to budgetary disagreements, Fox’s Frankenstein remake is no longer in the hands of director Shawn Levy. The new man being the camera is Paul McGuigan who we may remember as the director of Lucky Number Slevin. (Variety)

Wolf Creek was a surprise hit from 2006, but its sequel has had trouble getting off the ground. No more, according to this article from Bloody Disgusting on 9/6. Excellent news for fans.

Dig this trailer for upcoming shocker The Bay.

Publisher Michael Alosi talked to Fangoria about more books based on the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street series via his Dark Ink imprint. For fans of those series and collectors of horror memorabilia, these are definitely titles to watch for.

Feast your eyes on the new poster for Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem. Looks great if you ask me!
