News Digest

Friday the 13th is now on general release - and breaking records amongst mostly rubbish reviews. Have you seen it? What did you think? My nearest cinemas aren't screening it (yet?), so I've unfortunately not been able to check it out.

Plenty of Halloween 2 tidbits floating around, such as confirmation of Malcolm McDowell's return to Haddonfield and Heroes' Brea Grant joining the cast, as do several others. Filming on 'H2' has begun, and Zombie will be posting some photos from the set very soon, as per his blog on MySpace.

As its release draws nearer, more and more chatter is appearing about The Last House on the Left. Some new images, TV Spots, and brief mention of a possible sequel?! I'm still unconvinced that this remake will work; it looks far too glossy. I'm holding out though - I suppose if it's done right, then that glossiness could make its disturbing content more powerful. In other 'Wes Craven has lost it' news, he has ideas for another The Hills Have Eyes sequel.

Quite a bit of news surfacing on Brett Eisner's remake of The Crazies, including the one sheet poster and some more casting news.

Finally, in wholly unsurprising news, Sony Screen Gems' The Stepfather is rated PG-13.
