Arnold is looking . . . old in this latest Terminator image

The second day of filming just wrapped on the new Terminator movie, which means another pic from the set. Don't worry, we're not going to hit you with new pics every day . . . unless we feel like it that is.

Although excited about the prospect of a new Terminator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, it must be said the former governator is starting to show his age.

New pics from Denzel Washington's The Equalizer

While some might scoff at Denzel Washington taking on the mantel of The Equalizer, first portrayed by the great -- and very British -- Edward Woodward in the 1980s TV series, I'm all for it. Why? It's Denzel Washington, dammit. The man does no wrong.

The flick, directed by Denzel's Training Day partner Antione Fuqua, doesn't hit until Sept. 26, but we've scored some new images from the movie thanks to the fine folks at USA Today.

You Are Not Alone dumps found footage for POV horror

I was wondering when someone would take the best element of the found-footage genre -- the first-person aspect -- and do something new with it. Then along comes director Derk Mungor with his new thriller You Are Not Alone to show audiences how's it's done.

Instead of experiencing the horror through some untrained douche bag with a camera, You Are Not Alone puts audiences in the POV of the flick's main character, Natalie. What she sees, we see. What terror she experiences, the audience experiences.

Filming begins on Terminator: Genesis

His last few films haven't exactly caught on, but that hasn't stopped Arnold Schwarzenegger or the peeps behind Terminator: Genesis from getting their sequel/prequel/reboot off the ground.

That's right, the latest Terminator flick -- the first to star Schwarzenegger since Rise of the Machines -- is filming right now!

Blast off with the Starship Rising poster and trailer

We've been pumped for the sci-fi/action flick Starship Rising for a while now. Why? Because it stars Basement fave Brooke Lewis, that's why!

Well, thanks to the lovely Brooke, The Basement has scored the official trailer and poster for Alien Armageddon director Neil Johnson's latest. And it looks like a lot of fun, if you ask me.

Take a second look at Showtime's Penny Dreadful

I've been primed for Showtime's Penny Dreadful since that first trailer hit a couple of months ago. With the show's May 11 debut just around the corner, the marketing campaign is in full swing and has brought us another . . . look at horror-themed series. Suffice to say, it's an eyeful.

Yes, it's been a very puny Easter here in The Basement. Deal with it!

Citadel director on for Sinister sequel

Scott Derrickson's Sinister was a pretty creepy little number that left the door wide open for a franchise. And it made a boat load of dough, so a sequel was inevitable.

Surprise! Derrickson and his screenwriting partner, C. Robert Cargill, have completed a script for Sinister 2. Surprise again! Derrickson won't be back to direct.

Grave Encounters directors tackle aliens with Extraterrestrial

Shawn and I are big fans of Grave Encounters,  The Vicious Brothers' riff on paranormal "reality" TV. It's sequel not so much, but the boys do have talent and know how to stage a scare. So what are they up to next?

Turns out they have a new flick that'll premiere in just a few days at the Tribeca Film Festival, and they're trading ghosts for space invaders.

Teaser for Eli Roth's The Green Inferno consumes you

It's been a long time since Eli Roth directed a horror movie. He returns with a vengeance with The Green Inferno, which was acquired by Open Road Films at last year's Toronto International Film Festival.

And if you thought Roth couldn't top Cabin Fever and the Hostel films, think again -- this one's about cannibals baby!
