X-Flies 2 Poster & Plot Reveal

From Yahoo!:
The truth about "The X-Files" sequel some of it, anyway is now out there.

"X-Files" creator Chris Carter, writer Frank Spotnitz and other crew members gathered Wednesday to discuss the TV series and declassify some information about the upcoming film.

The popular Fox paranormal drama, which aired from 1993 to 2002, starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

"While this is not a mythology movie, it's true to everything that's come before," Spotnitz said at the William S. Paley Television Festival. "It's true to Mulder and Scully, who they are and where they would be this point in their lives and all of the experiences that they've had."

The series first made the leap to the big screen with 1998's "The X-Files: Fight the Future" Plans for another film were grounded in 2005 when Carter sued Fox over syndication profits for the show. The lawsuit was later settled.

Carter, who also directs the new movie, said it takes place in the present and uses a story envisioned when the series ended. While the show's sprawling alien mythology isn't part of the plot, Carter said there is a reference to Scully's seemingly supernatural son, William, who was born in season eight and later given up for adoption.

The film is due out July 25.

Carter was tightlipped about the title. "I can't tell you," he said. "I know what I want it to be, but Fox has some ideas of their own."

Creepy Gnome Terrorises Town

From The Sun:
A TOWN in South America is living in fear after several sightings of a 'creepy gnome' that locals claim stalks the streets at night.

The Gnome - which wears a pointy hat and has a distinctive sideways walk - was caught on video last week by a terrified group of youngsters.

Teenager Jose Alvarez - who filmed the gnome - yesterday told national newspaper El Tribuno that they caught the creature while larking about in their hometown of General Guemes, in the province of Salta, Argentina.

He said: “We were chatting about our last fishing trip. It was one in the morning. “I began to film a bit with my mobile phone while the others were chatting and joking. "Suddenly we heard something - a weird noise as if someone was throwing stones. "We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving. To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid."

Jose added that other locals had come forward to say they had spotted the gnome. He said: “This is no joke. We are still afraid to go out - just like everyone else in the neighbourhood now.

"One of my friends was so scared after seeing that thing that we had to take him to the hospital.”

Shutter Spirit Photography Contest

Enter to win a digital SLR camera starter kit! Includes digital SLR camera, camera bag, memory card, and more. Everything you need to be a spirit photographer. Ghosts NOT included.

A newly married couple discovers disturbing, ghostly images in photographs they develop after a tragic accident. Fearing the manifestations may be connected, they investigate and learn that some mysteries are better left unsolved.

Spirit Photography:
Shinrei Shashin is a phrase used to describe photos where ghosts or spirits decide to show all or part of themselves when a photo is taken. Ghosts/spirits show up for many reasons including hate for the person having their photo taken, expressions of distress, hate, jealousy etc. Spirits make their presence known through orbs, mist, apparitions, and ectoplasm. The term orb is the popular name given to typically circular anomalies appearing in photographs. In photography and video, orbs appear to be balls, diamonds, or smears of light with an apparent size in the image ranging from a golf ball to a basketball depending on the distance of the dust particle to the lens. Orbs sometimes appear to be in motion, leaving a trail behind them. There are two main trains of thought regarding the cause of orbs in photographs. The first school sees it as a fairly clear-cut case of flash or ambient light reflection off of dust, particles, insects, or moisture droplets in the air in front of the camera distorted by the digital cameras CCD lens being unable to focus, i.e. they are naturalistic. The opposing school maintains that orbs are paranormal in nature and spirits, i.e. non-naturalistic and ghost like. Ectoplasm (from the Greek ektos, "outside", + plasma, "something formed or molded") is a term coined by Charles Richet to denote a substance or spiritual energy supposedly "exteriorized" by physical mediums. Although the term is widespread in popular culture, the physical existence of ectoplasm is not accepted by mainstream science. Other researchers have duplicated, with non-supernatural materials, the photographic effects sometimes said to prove the existence of ectoplasm.

From the executive producers of "The Grudge" and "The Ring" comes Shutter. In theaters March 21st.

The Making of Zob Zombie's Halloween

Very early on in the production of Halloween, Rob Zombie announced that there would be a feature-length making of documentary similar to the "30 Days In Hell" feature available on "The Devil's Reject's" DVD.

Sadly, due to time constraints in the quick turn around of the Halloween DVD, the documentary was not finished and could not be included. Rob Zombie announced in his MySpace Blog that:

Halloween editor Glenn Garland has been hard at work finishing the making of Halloween documentary. This was obviously filming during filming of Halloween but we were unable to finish it in time for the DVD release. This will be available later this year. Glenn also edited 30 days in hell the making of THE DEVIL'S REJECTS.
