It's our first ever daily horror briefing. What little news items broke today? A release for "Giallo," an "Eye" auction and two Weinstein Company releases for '08 that both begin with the letter "R".

In other Weinstein-related news, Greg McLean's "Rogue," which bombed in Australia, is hitting screens via the Weinstein Company in the U.S. in the spring. And they'll be releasing "The Road," an apocalyptic thriller with cannibals -- plus Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen. (John Hillcoat directed.) ...
Lionsgate is auctioning off posters for "The Eye" remake (opening Friday) signed by Jessica Alba herself, with proceeds going to charity. Click here for 'em.
