Martyrs director boards Hellraiser remake
Finally some news the on troubled remake of Clive barkers horror classic Hellraiser, that's actually caught our attention.

The Midnight Meat Train (2008) Director - Ryuhei Kitamura. Review by: Peter Higgins. Midnight Meat Train. First things first: great title. No, really: great title. But is that the only thing it has going for it?

First stills from upcoming Thai horror MEAT GRINDER
Right, this is what we know so far about upcoming Thai horror MEAT GRINDER. It's being made by local movie production house Phranakorn film (who've released some pretty good upper end B-horror movies in the past) and from the look of these first stills to appear online, its going to be more than little bit (ok, its Thai horror so make that incredibly) bloody.

New poster for THE FATALITY
Whoever in Taiwan is responsible for marketing the upcoming Thai/Taiwanese horror THE FATALITY seems to have caught on that their first rather drab one sheet might not really cut it when it comes to HORROR movie posters, and has swapped out the design for a variation of the Thai version.

Website goes live for CORALINE
The official site for Neil Gaiman's upcoming animated horror fantasy film CORALINE is live to explore. For those not in the know, Gaimen is a highly respected (and in our book l iterary genius) and influential British writer of fantasy/horror Graphic novels, books, and screenplays.

EDEN LAKE up for pre-order on DVD
Its a fair while off, but James Watkins Hoodie horror EDEN LAKE is up for pre-order on DVD. Opinions on the flick here at 24fps have been divided right down the middle, but there's no denying EL is a well shot, visceral and hard core piece of filmaking - with one hell of bleak ending.

Second poster for BUTTON MAN
Considering the plot revolves around the story of a cleaner for the mob, the first poster for Jen Hao Chien's gangland thriller THE BUTTON MAN, was a little on the tame side. A fault they haven't repeated, with this 2nd far darker one sheet. Francis Ng (Shamo, It's a Wonderful Life) heads up the cast of what looks like, it could be one hell of a bloody ride.

The Good, The Bad, The Weird (2008) Director - Ji-woon Kim Reviewed by: Pete Higgins. THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE WEIRD certainly lives up to its title. Bits of it are good, bits of it are bad, and bits of it are weird. Essentially a spaghetti western mash-up of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Mad Max 2," it dashes along at such speed that it's only afterwards you notice the complete lack of plot, character or motivation.
