Dear Blog, I'm sorry for neglecting you.

I'm sure you've all missed me. Achingly, longingly missed me. I am sorry. I just get bouts of laziness, you know?

So, things I've missed include our first glimpse at the new Freddy, who seems to just...look like Freddy. I've also missed the 23567 posts on the 'net about Halloween 2, which is released in the States today. Anyone planning on seeing it? It's up against The Final Destination, which I'll be watching tonight (3D! I can't resist 3D!). There are also lots of clips and images online now for Sorority Row, which, ashamedly, I kinda like the look of. Please don't hurt me, I'll realise the error of my ways about 3 minutes into the film, no doubt. A remake I am definitely loooking forward to is The Wolfman, which has sadly been pushed back to 2010, however, the first trailer looks pretty fun, so fingers crossed it won't get pushed any further. Finally, some pretty funky people have been cast in Darren Bousman's remake of Mother's Day, including Jamie King, Shawn Ashmore, Briana Evigan and, big surprise, the lovely Alexa Vega.

In big breaking news for today, however, it seems that Rob Zombie is not content with ruining one great horror film, as rumour now has it that he'll be remaking The Blob. His vision for the remake? Get rid of the blob. "My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing -- that's the first thing I want to change," Variety quotes him as saying. So, take the blobby thing about of The Blob. He goes on to say "That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now." Alright, Rob, I'll hand it to you, that's a fair point. But what're you going to call it instead? Gelatinous Rednecks from Outer Space?
