Shia LaBeouf Injures Crotch!

Unfortunately, it had nothing to do with my foot.

From MTV News:

“I pulled a rotator cuff in my hip,” Shia LaBeouf said, gesturing to his waist. “It’s the only time in my career I’ve ever been injured. What happened was, because the injury got worse and worse as the movie went on, I pulled my groin also. [The groin] is not a good thing to have anything happen to.”

Stop Uwe Boll!

Uwe Boll, king of German tax loopholes and director of nigh unwatchable film versions of videogames, in a recent interview with FEARnet.com said that he would stop making movies if one million people signed a petition that's been circulating online. I think you all know what to do.

Here's the link to the petition.

April Fool's Day (REVIEW)

Two rich southern siblings throw a ‘Debutante Ball’ for a fellow socialite and friend. Instead of being a straight up honor to said friend, the siblings are throwing the party as an excuse to pull the ultimate April fool’s prank on another local socialite, ‘Milan’. All’s well and good as far as the prank plan goes until Milan winds up dead. Cut to one year later; the siblings Desiree and Blaine receive a mysterious invitation that states ‘meet me at Milan’s grave.

Horror Headlines 4/8/08

The official site for "Repo: A Genetic Opera" has launched today. I perused it for a few minutes this morning and I have to say, very nicely designed. So, check it out at the link.

You know it's a slow news day when I'm reporting news on the latest "Starship Troopers" sequel. Click here for an interview with the film's visual effects director for some info on the film's baddies, as well as a bunch of behind the scenes photos.

Darren Arnofsky, writer/director of both "Pi" and "Requiem For a Dream", is working on a pilot for AMC called "Riverview Towers", about a family who moves into an apartment building where lots of supernatural activity is happening. The pilot is currently in the developmet stages, and has not yet been picked up.

"Zombie Strippers" is getting a limited theatrical release on April 18th. The film stars Robert Englund and Jenna Jameson. I'm guessing you won't see this at your local family theater, but those of you with seedier multiplexes in your area might have actually have a chance to check it out.

Lions Gate has made one of their smartest moves in recent memory, by changing the title of Clive Barker's "Midnight Meat Train" to the decidedly less gay-porny "Midnight Train". It's strange when I have to report a story about a studio actually making a good decision. Also, the film has been removed from their upcoming release docket.

In Real People News: 

Alright, I'm down with all of this "Dark Knight" viral marketing stuff, but this scientist who burned himself with acid might be trying a little too hard to emulate Harvey Dent. Oh, that was an accident? Right, sorry.

In what may be the most spectacular suicide-related story we've ever reported on, a man recently took his life by cutting off his own head with a chainsaw. No joke necessary here, just savor that mental picture for a while.

On this day in history: 

1994: Kurt Cobain's body is found 3 days after committing suicide with a shotgun.

Vague Genre Movie - Ya, that's about right

Leave it to Maddox, the owner/creator of The Best Page in the Universe, to make a pretty great spoof trailer as an indictment of all of those awful, shitty, horrible, offensive "Movie" movies that have been coming out over the last few years. And, I have to agree with the poster quoted in the trailer when he says, "I hope these guys die from some type of nutsack cancer".
