Amazing Animated Scene From ‘Prometheus’
Incase you have yet to see Ridley Scott’s Prometheus you might want to skip over this next part. But for those of you who have seen the film you’ll definitely want to check out this awesome animated video from James Lee. In it he does his own hilarious interpretation of what is in my opinion the best scene in the entire film and hands down one of the best moments in a horror film in quite some time.
Another Look At Guillermo del Toro’s Epic Sci-fi Monster Flick
Theres a new picture of Del Toro’s Pacific Rim floating around and it features Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi suited up for what can only be an epic battle with monsters. Recently Del Toro stated that the fight scenes throughout the film will take place everywhere, “We take the battles far and above! Two or three of them happen in places where there have never been a battle between kaiju and robots. From the bottom of the ocean to the atmosphere of the Earth. We have a battle in a storm at sea. Every battle we try to do differently. One is seen from the point of view of a single person. We never cut away from that point of view.”

First One-Sheet For Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’
Some would argue that this isn’t horror related but let’s just be honest. The Wizard of Oz is freaky as shit to little kids. One of horror’s greatest directors, Sam Raimi, will be directing the latest tale of Oz and the first poster is gorgeous.
The film will follow a small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco), who pulls one flim-flam too many and finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz, where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard – and just maybe into a better man as well.
Also starring are Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff. You can expect to see Oz: The Great and Powerful in theatres on March 8, 2013.
