by | November 3, 2006 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, Rotten Tomatoes counted down the best reviewed horror films just in time for Halloween, "Spider-Man 3" has another villain onboard, and "Superman" will return again.

Also, to the surprise of no rational human being, "Saw 4" is in the works for October of next year, and the studio behind 1982’s "Time Bandits" is experiencing the increasingly common affliction known as "remake-itis." Read on for more.

RT’s Top 20 Halloween Movie Countdown, Part 4

Happy Halloween! We’ve been counting down the Top 20 Halloween flicks and today we unveil the number one best-reviewed in horror and suspense cinema, so without further ado…

Scoop on a FOURTH "Spider-Man 3" Villain?

It was Villain Overkill that helped to kill the Burton/Schumacher "Batman" series — but somehow we don’t expect the same thing to happen with Sam Raimi’s "Spider-Man 3" — we hope.

Early Buzzings of a "Superman" Sequel

So now that it’s been established that "Superman Returns" was a "hit," but certainly no sort of "mega-hit," we can now start talking about sequels. And it looks like director Bryan Singer might have a smaller budget than previously planned.

Stunning News! "Saw 4" Next October!

What with "Saw 3" doing such amazing business over its first three days of release, it should come as absolutely no surprise whatsoever that Lionsgate has announced plans for "Saw 4" — and considering what happens at the end of Part 3, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s curious to see where THIS sequel heads.

Anyone Interested in a "Time Bandits" Remake?

Today’s daily remake news? Someone wants an all-new version of Terry Gilliam’s "Time Bandits" to get made. I know, I know; I feel the same way you do.

Oh yes, there will be another "Saw."
