Newswire: Deadpool director Tim Miller is now producing a Sonic The Hedgehog movie

After leaving Deadpool 2 earlier this month over “creative differences,” original Deadpool director Tim Miller has moved on to a big-screen Sonic The Hedgehog movie—meaning he’s going from chimichangas to chili dogs. (For readers who are less nerdy, chimichangas are Deadpool’s favorite food and chili dogs are Sonic’s favorite food.) This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which says Miller is merely producing and developing the Sonic movie, not directing it. That gig falls on frequent Miller collaborator Jeff Fowler, who will be making his feature directorial debut with Sonic.

The THR story says it ill be a “hybrid CG-animation/live-action family film,” with Golan The Insatiable’s Patrick Casey and Josh Miller writing the script. We don’t know any real specifics about the movie, but it will reportedly focus on “Sonic and his friends, such as Tails and Knuckles.” Hopefully that will also include some

Dread Central's Best & Worst of 2009

2009. It was pretty much as crappy a year for horror movies as it was for the economy. There were, however, some really high points to help balance out all the drivel that was put out there in theatres as well as on home video, and they are to be celebrated, even though technically a couple of them are not even from this year.

Pull up your chair, sit back, and strap yourself in for a look back at the dos, the don'ts, and of course the "Doh!"s of this past year.

Vampires lose bite as Transylmania flops and New Moon wanes

Audience apathy drove a stake through the heart of vampire spoof Transylmania at the weekend when it became a spectacular, record-breaking box office flop.

The R-rated, low-budget indie horror comedy - about a group of college kids on a semester at Razvan University in Romania - had the worst American opening in history for a movie playing at more than 1,000 venues.

It earned an abysmal $263, 941, taking the record of shame for worst debut ever from 1991's Rich Girl. On review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, it has a rating of 0 per cent. Yes, that's a zero.

It also had the third worst movie opening in more than 600 cinemas, behind New Market's 2005 recut of The Passion of the Christ and 2008 indie drama Proud American.

The 92-minute spoof, which premiered at the American Film Market in November 2008 and later screened at the European Film Market in February 2009, was directed by brothers David and

trailer break: ‘Transylmania’

I’m thinking this is what happened: The “creative” team of directors David and Scott Hillenbrand and writers Worm Miller and Patrick Casey -- who previously brought us the beloved and acclaimed Oscar winner National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze -- were sitting around toking up one night, and someone said, “Semester abroad in Transylvania!” And cinematic history was made. Next Friday, December 4, there are four films opening wide: the potential awards contenders Everybody’s Fine (trailer here) and Brothers (trailer)... and Armored (trailer), which will not screen for critics, and this film, which I also suspect will not screen for critics. I guess that’s clever counterprogramming, and it’s probably safe to assume that the people who wish to avoid potential awards contenders are probably not bright enough to catch on that they’re being particularly targeted that weekend because they’re neither choosy nor discriminating.

Exclusive Video: Watch the Transylmania TV Spot

Directors David and Scott Hillenbrand are back on the scene with the hilariously scary new horror comedy Transylmania. In the film, a motley crew of college students embark on the wildest, sexiest, most outrageous semester abroad ever at Razvan University in the dreaded town of Transylvania. We are debuting a never-before-seen TV spot from Transylmania, which you can check out by clicking on the box below:

Located deep in the heart of the "cursed land" of Transylvania in a centuries-old castle, Razvan University isn't your typical institution of higher learning. Black leather-clad professors, a three-foot-tall dean, instructions in crucifix-wielding, and topless vampiresses are just the start. It seems Castle Razvan was overtaken by a band of vampires led by the feared Vampire King Radu in the dark ages who's now come back to reclaim it. A bubbling cauldron of wacky horror spoof, vampire action-adventure, and naughty college comedy, Transylmania culminates
