With very little in the way of publicity or announcements, DisneyBuena VistaTouchstone Hollywood Pictures has decided to bump their horror flick Primeval from April to January 12. Yep, next weekend! I'm guessing they decided to jam their murder thriller into the early-year horror slot that was going to go to either Hostel: Part 2 or White Noise 2: The Light, but both of those flicks bailed for later release dates.

No word yet on if Primeval will be screening for the press, but I'm not holding my breath, and that kinda sucks because A) I'm scheduled to review it, and B) I'm kinda looking forward to seeing it. It's about an American news team who travels to South Africa to get the scoop on "the world's most prolific serial killer," which seems like a specious designation when you realize who the killer actually is ... but I don't want to spoil the fun. (Check out a new pair of TV spots right here.)

Written by Michael Ferris and John Broncato (The Game, Terminator 3, Catwoman), Primeval comes from veteran TV director Michael Katelman, and it stars the likes of Dominic Purcell, Orlando Jones, Brooke Langton and Jurgen Prochnow. Special note for the horror freekz: Primeval has been rated R for "strong graphic violence, brutality, terror and language." Cool.
