    According to IMDB (which I know isn't always reliable), filming has wrapped on MERCY. If this is in fact true, and the release date is still scheduled for sometime later this year, where are the trailers? Are they still fiddling with the movie in post production? Is it a matter of the studio wavering on theatric vs straight-to-DVD release?

    I mean, if screenwriter Matt Greenberg can do with this what he did with 1408, it could make a killing at the box office. (They should let this guy take a shot at Warner Bros.'s IT script, too.)

    Halloween is right around the corner and that's usually when studios try to unload the horror films on us, well, that and now the trend the last few years is also unload them at Christmas. WTF??!!

    The production company behind it, Blumhouse, has a stack of completed movies that were supposed to be out over a year ago or longer. They basically shoot movies non stop on extremely low budgets, and have had a lot of success with the "Paranormal Activity", "Insidious", "Sinister" and "The Purge" series of films, but aside from those they have many more sitting on the shelf waiting for release. They have an exlcusive deal with Universal now though so hopefully somebody up there will at least send it to VOD/DVD at some point soon.

    According to this article, Mercy (aka Gramma) is being "dumped to digital" in October. I'm not entirely sure what that means -- perhaps Video on Demand?

    That's about what I expected to happen. If you read that article it shows you how much of a back log of movies Blumhouse has on the shelf. At least it's getting released soon.

    Or going straight to dvd/bluray like Dolan's Cadillac?

    It's available for purchase on US iTunes today and for rent in a couple of weeks.

    Yeah, I guess there is not much from the King's story... But the trailer looks great, I must say. Really looking forward to it!
