Three Great Character Actors Gone in One Sad Weekend
The traditional logic that says "famous people always die in threes" was backed up with a vengeance this past weekend as we lost a trio of talented, prolific, and well-admired character actors. Don Knotts, Darren McGavin, and Dennis Weaver all passed away over the weekend, which is sad news for movie fans the world over. We take solace in the fact that each man was more than 80 years of age when he died, and also that they all left behind a whole lot of movie-land memories.

Bob Clark Wants to Revisit His Old "Dead Things"
You know the horror-remake machine is getting a little crazy when a title like "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things" is being suited up for a revisit, but that's precisely what writer/director Bob Clark plans to do.

Are You Dreaming of (Another) "Black Christmas"?
The writing/producing/directing team of James Wong and Glen Morgan ("Final Destination," "Willard") has been commissioned to mount a remake of the 1974 cult classic "Black Christmas." Production is scheduled to begin this September, and producer Steve Hoban says "It's going to be a classic horror film, but it won't be a gorefest ... This is an era of paranoia, so I think the timing could be really good, because this is a film all about paranoia."
