"28 Weeks Later" won the Best Horror Movie Award from Spike TV's Scream Awards. Av very well desered honor to put it mildly. Why this film wasn't a huge box office smash is beyond me. ...

"Magic" star Anthony Hopkins has two new roles that should interest horror fans. He's playing Benicio Del Toro's Dad in the upcoming "Wolf Man" remake. Meanwhile, he's also set to play Alfred Hitchcock in a bio pic.
