A feast in a time of plague.

Argh. I had a whole post done for today, only to see it vanish into the effing void. Quick recap: Monica Bellucci to be the Evil Queen in Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Monica Bellucci.

Farewell, 2-D animation. Your big screen run was fun while it lasted.

Lastly, some magazines I need to have subscriptions to: Metasex, Shock Cinema, Scarlet Street, and Sleazoid Express. And now that Video Watchdog has hit the century mark, I guess that it's time to subscribe over there, as well.

Did you know that Shaolin Soccer was one of the top ten downloads on the Internet in August? Maybe they should just release the damned thing.

The website for Gothika is live. Don't know how excited I am for this one, though the trailer is pretty good.

Speaking of cool websites, I saw demonlover on Saturday--and loved it. Scope out their website and be sure to check the flick out if it comes your way. Just don't expect to be able to figure out what is "really" going on. Darned French and ther semiotics 'n stuff.

The website for the new Andy Lau/Cecilia Cheung vehicle has gone live. This one might be fun, at least.

I have great respect for Larry Cohen (heck, I lust love that Q, The Winged Serpent disk, but I'm not sure about this one. He appears to be suing the makers of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, claiming they stole his idea for the film. Hmmmmmmmm. I don't think I buy it.

I can't find this news online, so you'll just have to trust me on this one: Cult Epics will be releasing a nice new DVD of Borowczyk's La Bete. Yahoo.

Late update: don't miss this NY Times piece on how the studios plan to fight online music piracy. Some interesting stuff here.

From the "hey, that's cool!" department: good old Sony, a company that at least has some clue what to do with their Asian purchases, has picked up the rights to Kim Ki-duk's Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring.

This item's slightly stale, but did you know that Naomi Watts is in the running for the Fay Wray role in Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong? That'd be quite fine by me.

Want to check out some pix from the Blade III shoot in beautiful Vancouver? Then head on over to Hollywood North Report and scope 'em out!

Last but not least, some great Mondo Macabro news: they'll be releasing the rare South Asian vampire film Zinda Laash next month. Pete Tombs says he more of less rescued this one from the trash can, so let's be thankful that it wasn't lost for good. Be sure to pick this one up!

OK, I've been pretty lax on updates of late. Here goes trying to keep things updated again for a bit, to see if this'll be worth telling people about. Anyway, I might as well point out that Anchor Bay's incredible two-disc set of The Hills Have Eyes. I've only watched the feature itself (it just hit the street yesterday) but this sure seems like the definitive version of this gritty and great piece of 70's horror. Michael Berryman kicks ass, is all I'll say.

Updates over at Synapse Cinema have been few and far between of late, but at MHVF Don May shows up to mysteriously explain why and to show off the cover of the upcoming Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural. No word on a street date on this one yet, but I'm a-waitin'.

Hey, if you live in LA, be sure to check out the 9 horror films that'll be playing on the Citywalk's IMAX screens in October. Very cool.

Lastly, be sure to read through the Richard Corliss article on the Asian films at this year's Toronto film fest. Since Miramax bought the rights to Zaitochi you'll likely never see it, but there's some other stuff there that looks aces.

I'm on vacation, so I'm not writing much here this week. Still, check out these cool interviews with Hills Have Eyes cast and crew members as a prelude to the kickass upcoming DVD.
