I've been sitting here for about five minutes trying to decide the best format for this year-end article. Do I just throw out a bunch of titles and then wait for the inevitable response(s) of "Dude, we've seen those ones. Got anything more obscure-ish?" Or do I list Every single horror film that hit the scene in 2008, and then give each one a star rating and a few pithy comments?
But then I remembered how much I love chronological order. My life, for example, is lived chronologically, and I wouldn't have it any other way. So let's start in January and simply slither forward. I'm including only the highlights of each month, so if you're looking for me to make fun of stuff like Pulse 2, Shutter, of freakin' Prom Night, I'm sorry to disappoint you. (Ok, fine: I'll cover the crap too. I just can't say no to gorehounds. »

Gold Circle Films, which has been known for producing some duds (White Noise 2) and some under-appreciated classics (Slither) in its time, has just nabbed a new script that will hopefully appeal to us genre freaks. It’s called Inside Passage and was penned by Jonathan W.C. Mills (pictured).
According to THR, the story revolves around a couple whose honeymoon onboard a luxury yacht is thrown into flux when they come across a murder at sea. I’ve not had a honeymoon with my wife yet, but I can only hope when we do, something that cool happens. At least we'd have a story to tell!
Mills is also set to make his directorial debut with a thriller called Brutal pretty soon, but the trades offered no further details other than that Day of the Dead remake/Rambo production house Emmet/Furla Film is behind it.
