It is time for another addition of the Weekly Pit. Sit back, brew a cup of coffee, and enjoy!
Tomorrow, we’ll be posting our weekly recap along with some new comic book, TV and film news.
New images form the fifth installment of the “Saw” franchise have been released by Lionsgate. In the film, “Hoffman (portrayed by Costas Mandylor) is seemingly the last person alive to carry on the Jigsaw legacy. But when his secret is threatened, Hoffman must go on the hunt to eliminate all loose ends.” Along with Mandylor, Jigsaw himself Tobin Bell is returning, as is Scott Patterson and Shawnee Smith. They will be joined by Meagan Good, and Julie Benz.

AICN has posted the awesome one-sheet for “My Name is Bruce”, a new horror comedy from Dark Horse Entertainment. In the movie, cult hero Bruce Campbell portrays cult hero Bruce Campbell who “is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and forced to fight a real monster in a small town in Oregon.” Also fighting the monster is Ted Raimi. The film was directed by Campbell from a script by Mark Verheiden.
You can check out the full poster here, and then watch the film’s trailer here. The film will be getting a limited release on October 30th, in the US. I don’t care where I have to drive, I’ll be there!
One of my favorite games on the X-Box 360 is coming to the Wii! “Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop” follows the story of “Frank West, an overly zealous freelance journalist on a hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. In pursuit of a juicy lead, he makes his way to the small suburban town of Willamette only to find that it has become overrun by zombies. Frank escapes to the local shopping mall” where the real fun begins (Source: IGN).
While the graphics might not be as slick as they were on the 360, the Wii offers a way for gamers to enter the zombie infested mall in a whole new way as you’ll have to hack/slash and point/shoot the Wii controller at the flesh eaters to survive. With 10,000 zombies coming at you, I can only imagine how tired your arm will be after a few hours of gameplay. Keep reading to watch a video showcasing the gameplay (gory/graphic violence).
Today is shaping up to be one great day. First the rumor that Linda Hamilton might be returning to the Terminator franchise, and now we get a report that “Maniac Cop 4” is in the works! The Maniac Cop series (the first starred the icon known as Bruce Campbell… who also cameos in the second one) is one of those crazy cult horror series that started in the late 80s at the height of the slasher genre and released two sequels in the early 90s before disappearing (for what I thought would be forever). “Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence” ended with a wink at the audience and the door wide open for another go around.
And now, 15 years later, we might finally get that next go around. Fangoria is reporting that William Lustig, the director of all three of the Maniac Cop films, announced at a screening of the original film this past week that he had gotten the sequel rights back for Maniac Cop. He went on to say that he is currently preparing “Maniac Cop 4” along with Larry Cohen, the franchise’s sole screenwriter.
Hopefully Lustig and Cohen get the support and freedom that they need to make this picture. I for one would love to see it on the big screen, but would definitely settle for a DVD if the film were to go that route instead.
Fangoria has announced that they will be holding a free screening of the long delayed horror anthology “Trick ‘R Treat” in New York City on October 13th. The screening will be the film’s East Coast premiere and will be introduced by the film’s director Michael Doughtery (co-writer of “X-Men 2” and “Superman Returns”), who will stick around afterwards for an audience Q&A.
The film stars Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker, and Leslie Bibb. IMDB lists the plot of the film as follows; “Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.”
