• The score for James Wan’s Insidious, by Joseph Bishara, is now available. You can order it up via this link.

• Before he directed Madison County (premiering at L.A.’s Screamfest), Eric England did this short film: “The Trick or Treater.”

• “The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has rejected the sexually violent DVD The Bunny Game [from director Adam Rehmeier]. The film follows a female prostitute who hitches a lift with a truck driver. The truck driver kidnaps the woman, restrains and forcibly strips her, and proceeds to physically and sexually abuse and humiliate her. The abuse of the kidnapped woman takes up the greater part of the film.” ‘Nuff said. [BBFC]

Stiller will play Fred Mumford, a fellow who, though a slacker in life, has become determined to make something of himself as a newly deceased ghost. He winds up setting up a afterlife temp service, getting ghosts to rent themselves out for use by the living. [Deadline]

In the small town of Ten Acres, a group of friends take a weekend ski trip. During their trip, they find that the town is being attacked by zombies! The group unites with other guests staying at the Ten Acres Lodge in Vermont.” More details HERE.

• Paranormal Activity 3 received an MPAA rating of R “for some violence, language, brief sexuality and drug use.” Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, meanwhile, is PG-13 “for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, and language.”
