Why am I watching this?” Well, Ghost Trek creator, Michael Plumides sat through marathon episodes of paranormal reality TV one Christmas and came up with a comic-horror concept called, Ghost Trek, which takes a swipe at the whole genre – with you in mind.

Ghost Trek follows the Paranormal Underworld Detective Society (Puds) as they investigate haunts across the U.S. and abroad between tanning beds, babes, body-building, and bong hits — all the while risking life and limb capturing the undead and unexplained on video.

Maximum Conviction Trailer Starring Steven Seagal and Stone Cold Steve Austin

If you were disappointed that neither Steven Seagal nor "Stone Cold" Steve Austin made an appearance in The Expendables 2, you'll be happy to know that they've gone and made an action flick of their own called Maximum Conviction. Sure, it's a direct-to-dvd piece of crap, but hey, what did you expect? The movie is directed by Keoni Waxman, the same guy who did the previous Stone Cold starring vehicle Hunt to Kill. As you can probably guess, it looks pretty bad although the non-existent chemistry between Seagal and Austin is almost so terrible it's sublime. Maximum Conviction hits DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 6th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

Five Essential... Gary Daniels Films

Following on from his interview last week, Tom Jolliffe selects his Five Essential Gary Daniels films…

When a plethora of martial art specialists were foist upon audiences in the late 80s and early 90s, there were a few who managed to find an audience and maintain lengthy careers in the video realm. One such star was Gary Daniels, who flew the British flag before anyone had heard of Jason Statham. Daniels major selling points were his excellent on screen fighting abilities and willingness to really throw himself into the action. Daniels performs most of his own stunts, whilst a hands on approach to action choreography, combined with a distinct Mma style has delivered plenty of excellent mano-a-mano brawls in his films.

Daniels continues to go at full pelt, and despite being near the big 5-0, he’s still in immense shape and barely looks a day over 30. He’s stood toe to toe (on film!

Top 5: Wrestlers turned actors

As Anchor Bay UK releases Born To Fight onto DVD and Blu-ray this week (October 3rd) starring the one and only “Stone ColdSteve Austin, we thought we would have to look to see who the Top 5 Wrestlers turned actors are, past and present…

1) “Stone ColdSteve Austin

Our winner has to be “Stone ColdSteve Austin. Stone Cold has fought onto our screens many times over the years. Being the only action hero on this list even to be nominated for a Teen Choice.

DVD Review: Born To Fight

Born To Fight

Stars: ‘Stone ColdSteve Austin, Daniel Magder, Jaren Brandt Bartlett, Janet Kidder, Emma Grabinsky | Written by Evan Jacobs, Jack Nasser | Directed by Anne Wheeler

Former WWE superstar ‘Stone ColdSteve Austin is back with Born To Fight, aka Knockout, another direct to DVD movie for producer Jack Nasser, who both previously worked together on Damage, The Stranger and the awesome Hunt to Kill. Besides producing Nasser also co-writes, with Evan Jacobs (Doughboys), this Karate Kid-esque underdog story of a nerd who learns to box, get the girl and beat the high school bully.

So far so Karate KId right? Well yes and no. Born To Fight does follow the now typical beatdown, train, fight, win formula that was made famous by Mr. Miyagi and co. in the 80s, but it has a lot, and I mean a Lot, in common with the underrated 90′s action movie Showdown,
