anthony hopkins van helsingThis is what happens when I fall down a rabbit hole. Recently, Van Helsing came up in conversation (the film hit theaters 10 years ago this year) and I recalled reading about a Van Helsing film that was in development after the success of Bram Stoker's Dracula. So, I dug out my copies of Fangoria and started to sift through that magazine's "Terror Teletype" – a column that was once the only place to get the latest information on new horror movie happenings, deals, casting breaks and other industry chatter a kid growing up on the East Coast would not get from the Hollywood trade papers. Here, I learned Billy Idol was rumored to star in Terminator 2 and that Renny Harlin might possibly direct Alien III and that LL Cool J was developing and looking to star in Blade in the early '90s.

Off The Record, On The QT, And Very Hush-Hush: David Fincher: A Retrospective
Interesting
Who is David Fincher?

Even the most casual of cinefiles has more than likely stumbled across some of Finchers work, He is the man behind Fight Club, Se7en and The Social Network. Fincher's style is unique and is often copied but rarely bettered. His films are dark, sometimes harrowing but for the most part believable. Fincher's strongest suit is taking a script and getting to the actual roots of what the characters are trying to do whilst using a style that is real, gritty and dirty.
