Director Adam Green’s 2006 old-school slasher film Hatchet — about a deformed killer named Victor Crowley who haunts a Louisiana swamp — has spawned a sequel, Hatchet II, which hits Blu-ray and DVD in the US tomorrow (Feb. 1) and in Canada on Feb. 15. The DLB spoke to Green for Rue Morgue Magazine (read the rest of the interview here) and asked him about his future projects, including an adaptation of the Greg Taylor YA novel Killer Pizza, his part of the horror anthology Chillerama, and the possibility of a third Hatchet film.

Any movie coming out in January must fall under suspicion. This month and August are Hollywood’s dumping grounds, the time when weak films finally get their chance in theatres alongside critical darlings getting expanded runs after platform December openings.
The DLB recently had the pleasure of speaking to Saw: The Final Chapter actor Cary Elwes for Rue Morgue about his appearance in the series’ final film where he reprises his role as Dr. Lawrence Gordon. Look for that interview to be published tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9 a.m. In the meantime, here are a couple of extra questions from that talk to warm you up:
Rue Morgue Magazine‘s monthly Cinemacabre screenings return to Toronto’s Bloor Theatre tonight with 1977’s Holocaust 2000. The mag describes it as an “over the top 1977 Omen rip-off [which] stars Kirk Douglas as a businessman trying to build a nuclear power plant in the Middle East. As everyone opposing the plan meets a grisly end, he suspects that his son is really the Anti-Christ trying to bring on doomsday! Tense, gory and featuring a score by Ennio Morricone, HOLOCAUST 2000 is evil… Italian-style.”
We’ll be there!
While speaking to the cast of the new SPACE show Being Human — yes, this is the American version of the British hit about a vampire, werewolf and ghost living together — The DLB asked stars Sam Huntington (the werewolf) and Sam Witwer (the vampire) about their other horror-related projects.

Case 39 was shot in late 2006, first scheduled for release to theatres in August 2008, and finally released on DVD and Blu-ray this week. It must be monumentally bad, yes? Fortunately no, although we can see why Paramount, the studio that produced it, might not be sure how to market it.
