Even with The Hangover Part III and Fast and Furious 6 making their way to theaters next weekend, this might be the most ridiculous sequel news we've heard all year. Without director Ang Lee or nearly all of the original cast, the Weinstein Company is moving forward with a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the Oscar-nominated, fantastical martial arts drama released all the way back in 2000. According to The Hollywood Reporter Michelle Yeoh will be the sole cast member to reprise her role, and the directing duties will be taken over by Yuen Wo Ping. We first learned about these sequel plans in late January, back when Freddy vs. Jason director Ronny Yu was in talks to direct and Yuen Wo Ping was merely on board as a fight choreographer. And to be fair, the original Crouching Tiger was based on a book in a series by Wang Du Lu, »
Back in May, we reported that The Weinstein Company was targeting a May start date for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II – The Green Destiny. At the time, the film was angling to recruit Ronny Yu (Freddy vs. Jason) to direct from a script by John Fusco (Hidalgo). Fusco assumed fight choreographer Yuen Wo Ping would handle the martial arts scenes as he did in the first film. However, The Wrap is reporting that Wo Ping will be in the director's chair. Wo Ping has helmed over 20 Chinese-language films, but is best known for his fight choreography on movies such as The Matrix, Kill Bill, Kung Fu Hustle, and more. The Wrap adds that Donnie Yen (Ip Man) has signed on to play Silent Wolf opposite Michelle Yeoh, who reprising her role as Yu Shu Lien. There are currently no details on the plot, but "Harvey Weinstein, Yen and Wo Ping »

The strikeout with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth with your team down by a run....a dropped Td pass in the end zone that could have sealed a Super Bowl win....or that punch that missed a bully's face, in order to get him off of your back for good....these scenarios are called "missed opportunities" - like things we wish we had said, or done, or basically just acted upon in order to make a certain situation better. There isn't a better way to categorize 13 Eerie other than a "missed opportunity".
Upon initially viewing the trailer online my interest was peaked - zombies created by biologic testing hunting down future forensic students on a training exercise ? I'm in ! - So I plunked down 10 bucks at my local Wal-Mart and strolled off thinking I was in for something special........not quite. »
It’s pretty safe to say that by 1993, the Friday The 13th series had run out of ideas. They had followed the Michael Myers-free lead of Halloween III by not having Jason Voorhees appear in Friday The 13th Part V, and like Halloween III, the fans weren’t too keen on watching a film that didn’t feature the series’ mainstay. Voorhees was resurrected in Jason Lives, pitted against a psychic in The New Blood, and sent to New York in Jason Takes Manhattan . Following yet another franchise, the producers decided to kill Jason off in the same vein as Freddy’S Dead, with what they called “The Final Friday”, Jason Goes To Hell…and like Freddy’S Dead, the results were not very pretty.
It only happens once a year officially, but any devoted pothead will tell you that 420 happens at least once a day. For the uninitiated, 420 is a term used primarily in North America that refers to the consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.
Man, that sounded kinda smart, no? Anyway, observances based on the number 420 include smoking pot around the time 4:20 p.m. (and/or 4:20 a.m.) as well as on today's date, April 20th (4/20). In celebration of the wacky stoners who have died (or sometimes lived) in some of our favorite horror flicks, we present to you our Top 5. There would have been 10, but our short-term memory sucks lately.

Fright Rags released five new shirts today, including designs from Leprechaun, Christine, and Freddy vs. Jason:
Kill Destroyers: Metal + Horror = Awesomesauce. At least, we think so. This mash up is meant as a light-hearted parody of one of the best bands in the world, not to be confused with an actual “Kiss” shirt…but I’m sure you already knew that.

The artwork and specs for 13 Eerie's home video release have arrived, and it's very successful at evoking that Friday the 13th feeling. Though that may have something to do with the giant 13 and Friday's font being on the cover.

Six ambitious forensic undergrads are pitted against one another on a scientific expedition to a remote island, vying to win an esteemed trainee position with the FBI. Unbeknownst to everyone, the site was formerly used as an illegal biological testing ground for life-term criminals who were left for dead. Now, before the undergrads even begin their experiments, the zombie criminal convicts are systematically hunting them down, and what started as a fight for an esteemed career in the FBI has become each student’s fight for his very life.

If you’re reading this article, you probably love the entire Friday the 13th series of movies – or maybe you’re just curious about the title. Either way, I’m hoping you’ll find a few fun Friday the 13th facts in this article that were previously unknown to you.
To help those of you who might get confused later, here’s the list of the Friday the 13th movies. They’re referenced endlessly in this article, so take a moment to familiarize yourself with them.
Friday the 13th (1980) Friday the 13th Part II (1981) – Jason wore a sack on his head instead of the hockey mask Friday the 13th Part III (1982) – the awful 3D chapter in the series, but we finally get Jason in a hockey mask Friday the 13th Part IV (1984) – The Final Chapter – Tommy Jarvis kills Jason at the end Friday the 13th Part V (1985) – A New Beginning »

Chicago – Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, Freddy Krueger. Yes, Wes Craven’s masterful creation deserves to be listed right along with the most legendary villains of all time, a case made complete by Warner’s excellent new “A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection,” featuring all 7 original films and a new half-hour documentary about the lasting power of the man with a claw for a hand.
Admittedly, there’s little new in this set for those of you who sprung for the previous Blu-ray editions of the first three films that were released over the last few years. This is more for those who haven’t yet picked up any of the Freddy saga and now want them all. And while the first and last (“Wes Craven’s New Nightmare”) are the only truly great films in the set, there are things to like about all of the movies (Ok, all »

Fright Rags has announced that their latest limited edition shirt offering will be a Freddy vs. Jason design to celebrate the film’s 10th anniversary. Continue reading for all the details, and a full preview image of the shirt:
“It’s hard to believe that 10 years have gone by since Freddy Vs Jason was released. It seems like only yesterday we watched Freddy’s claw grab Jason’s mask at the end of Jason Goes To Hell and got a nerd-on for the potential match up we’d been waiting years for. Even though we’d have to wait another decade for them to finally slug it out, it was worth it.
With that, we wanted to commemorate its 10th Anniversary with a special limited edition. However, instead of waiting until summer (it was released in August), we decided to coincide our release with the Freddy Vs Jason reunion at »

While films that pit notorious horror icons together to ‘face off’ are far from classic cinema, there is no denying that they can be fun if taken as the mindless entertainment they are intended to be. When Freddy vs. Jason was released, it surpassed expectations by grossing over $80 million domestically. The film almost spawned a sequel, Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash. The follow up never came to fruition, since Sam Raimi wanted to maintain the rights to the Evil Dead franchise. A year later, we saw another epic pairing with Avp: Alien vs. Predator, which also grossed an estimated $80+ million. Then, in 2007, we saw Avpr: Alien vs. Predator: Requiem hit the market. And, of course, who could forget the Oscar contender (sarcasm) that was Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys.
There are plenty of hoops to jump through in order for studios to bring icons from different franchises together to duke it out. »

Kelly Clarkson has some harsh words for Clive Davis about his new autobiography (In which he also comes out as bisexual): "So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music. I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don't have to cower to anyone - even Clive Davis."If you can make it to the end of this, »
Freddy Krueger – The Sinister Sandman, The Haunter Of Nightmares, The Sleepy-Time Killer, Mr. Pointy Fingers – Ok, none of those names actually have ever been used to describe one of horror’s most notorious icons, but it doesn’t matter what you call him – he’s the man. If we all went to hell right now and entered the exclusive VIP section with flaming velvet ropes, Freddy would be surrounded by demon chicks and signing their evil tits like the horrifying rockstar he is. He’s had his own TV show, his own crossover film (Freddy Vs. Jason), and even appeared in a recent Mortal Kombat game! Hell, I just bought a pair of Freddy Krueger inspired Nike Dunks myself!
