- Steve Niles, the already very busy creator of 30 Days of Night is likely to get a bit busier now that Universal has optioned his comic series Criminal Macabre. Interesting premise, "supernatural detective who doubles as hitman, taking out all the vampires, ghosts and other unsavory monsters who live among humans, hiding in the shadows by day and emerging at night." I just wish Neal "Prom Night '09" Moritz wasn't producing.

- Just a quick note that Anchor Bay will be releasing the Syfy paid-for remake of Children of the Cornon DVD October 6th. That's about two weeks after the network gives the world premiere on September 26th.

- Also confirmed for October 6th is the looong anticipated release of Michael Dougherty's Trick 'R Treat on both DVD and Blu-ray. Fangoria has a few details on what we can expect from the Warner Bros' presentation, including confirmation that writer/director Dougherty's commentary track will only be avaible on the Blu variety.

- Milla Jovovich would like to tell you that her new movie is super serious and super realistic. Except that it isn't. Still, the trailer for alien abduction flick The Fourth Kind is quite creepy. Plus, it's always good to see the Resident Evil gal when she's doing things other than riding motorcycles up buildings. object width="410" height="237">

- Then Twitch has the trailer for Suck, which may just have one of the most oddball casts in recent years: Malcom McDowell, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins, Carol Pope and Dave Foley. Plot cocerns a failing band who turns everything around when a sexy vampiress is brought into the fold.

- And that sounds like George Romero's long gestating project Diamond Dead, which reminds me that there is a behind-the-scenes video up for Pappa Zombie's latest film, Survival of the Dead.
