1. DETAILS RELEASED ON NEW HALLOWEEN MOVIE
There's FINALLY a new Halloween movie on the way!
It‘s being described as a 'recalibration' rather than a remake or reboot (I’ve no idea what that means, either), but most exciting, it's being written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston, the creative team behind several of the Saw movies and The Collector/Collection!

2. NEW LEADS ANNOUNCED TO BATTLE THE EVIL DEAD ALONGSIDE ASH
Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo have been cast to co-star with horror legend Bruce Campbell in Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead. It seems that the showrunners are adding some younger eye-candy to work with Campbell, but, as long as they‘re 'Groovy’, I’m down with that!

3. RESIDENT EVIL HD REMAKE SETS NEW RECORDS
Capcom have announced that the new Resident Evil HD Remaster is the fastest selling digital download in the company’s history in both Europe and North America.
I’ve not polayed the game yet, but I've heard nothing but good things about the latest (oldest?) outing from the king of Survival Horror.
Seems there’s still life in the undead after all. Now how about an RE2 Remaster?
4. BLOMKAMP’S ALIEN ONE STEP NEARER TO REALITY?
Neill Blomkamp, director of District 9 and Elysium, may get the chance to make his dream Alien movie after all! After sharing a tonne of concept art earlier this year (most of it very, very cool indeed!), it seems Fox are keen to sit down and listen to his ideas. Whether this would come to fruition after Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, remains to be discovered, but Blomkamp has already shown real sci-fi vision, so this is one to watch out for!

5. SCREAM QUEENS TEASER IS HERE!

Watch it below!
