Last Week in Horror: 03/09 – 03/16

Posted by Peter Hall - March 16th 2008 @ 8:31 am

Last Week Sam Raimi went back to producing television.  A Verhoeven classic was on the receiving end of some rumors, while Charlize Theron sexied up a LADY VENGEANCE remake.  LOST BOYS 2 got a trailer, but who cares, because I think the real footage everyone has been waiting for is finally here:

THE GINGERDEAD MAN 2: THE PASSION OF THE CRUST!
