L4D DLC: Left 4 Dead is one of the best things ever. Not just one of the best games. Not simply one of the best multi-player experiences. But one of the best things, full stop. It is to horror fans what Halo is to, well… everyone else. And now we know when we can expect more. In a recent blog entry, the Xbox Live Community Team posted the release date of the highly anticipated DLC along with that of other games, such as Gears of War 2 and Halo 3. If this is to be believed, we could be defending lighthouses against unlimited hordes of peckish undead as soon as April 21st! All together now… “Ammo here”!!
DRAG ME TO HELL Poster: ShockTillYouDrop.com has secured the exclusive first look at the one-sheet poster for Sam Raimi’s return to horror, DRAG ME TO HELL. Early screenings of the film have received outstanding reviews, with the inevitable comparisons to EVIL DEAD actually being positive! That being said, I’m not getting that vibe from the poster – it just looks too… ‘clean’. And is it me, or does Alison Lohman look as if she’s actually enjoying things a bit too much here?
IT’s Back: I have no shame in admitting that the 1990 ABC mini-series IT scared the living crap out of me when I was younger. I can’t count how many pre-teen nightmares I had featuring Pennywise the clown and his offer of a free balloon. Well it seems as though a whole new generation is about to have the same experience. Warner Bros. have hired screenwriter Dave Kajganich (THE INVASION) to adapt Stephen King's novel for the multiplexes. This could be good, but if Kajganich can do something about that ridiculous ‘giant spider’ ending, it could be very cool indeed!
