Horror Headlines 3/23/08

The first pic from "Fear Itself" has surfaced. It's from the story called "The Eater", about a rookie cop forced to stay over night with a particularly nasty prisoner. Also of note, the chick in the picture looks like a poor man's Mena Suvari, which is needless to say not very good. "Fear Itself" is an anthology horror series that will run on NBC this summer.

Killer cannibal flick set in Tasmania. Looks pretty cool, but is being reported on mainly because of my lifelong obsession with Tasmania. Don't ask.

Fango is talking "Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust", and I'm riveted. Apparently you'll see a couple veteran FX guys appear in the film, mainly Greg Nicotero and John Carl Bucheler, as well as the return of Scream Queen Michelle Bauer. And of course, a killer ginger bread man. What more could you ask for?

"The Tale of Two Sisters" remake, crappily retitled to "Unborn" is being release January 30th, 2009.

"Happy Birthday To Me" is supposedly the next movie on the remake block. No other details are available at this time, except for... ugh.

The following is a list of hilarious things about The Lost Boys II: The Tribe" Cover art. 1: It exists 2: The movie isn't going theatrical 3: There is a person named "Tad" in this movie 4: Could Corey Feldman be any smaller? And 5: The way the names are, it looks like Corey Feldman is named Angus Sutherland. Ya, good luck with that comeback of yours.

In Real People News: 

Asshole with road rage accidentally shoots himself in the stomach. It's stories like these that keep me getting up every morning.

I'm sure there are lots of tests they run on you after you hit your head on something at a construction site... rectal exams shouldn't be one of them. Apparently at this hospital, "No" means "Yes".

On this day in history: 

1969: Sirhan Sirhan sentenced to death for assassinating Robert Kennedy.

Venture Brothers Season 3 Preview

Video escapes from the NY Comic Con, the exclusive 5 minute preview of Venture Brothers Season 3!

Quite possibly my most anticipated TV show of the season, VB 3 looks to be well worth the wait!

Newest Suicide Girl Not Actually a Human Being

As Eric already knows, I've absolutely never been a fan of Suicide Girls. It's entire foundation is based on "breaking the mold" by offering up an "alternative" (get it!) to Playboy by replacing plastic chicks with pallid ex Hot Topic employees with tattoos, extraneous piercings, and fragile StayPuft marshmallow skin. All points that I would have to make aside from personal preference are pretty well documented in this well known blogpost from a few years ago, The Death of Suicide Girls.

Horror Headlines 4/22/08

The Sarah Connor Chronicles has been renewed for another season by FOX. Given FOX's unorthodox release schedule, it's difficult to say what part of the year the ep's will run (summer, fall, winter etc...) and FOX is declining to comment at the moment.

I don't want to say that any graphic artist is "lazy" persay, but whoever made this poster for "The Strangers" needs to be fired. The previous two posters for this film were fantastic, why mess with it? The R rated home invasion pic gets a wide release May 30th.

Nana Visitor has been cast as Mrs. Voorhees in the "Friday the 13th" remake. In related news, her parents must have hated her to name her that. Visitor is a regular on the Scifi television scene, claiming roles in everything from Star Trek Deep Space Nine, to Dark Angel, to Battlestar Galactica.

Sony Screen Gems is planning on remaking the Linda Blair starrer "Hell Night", and making it PG-13. You may recall that they're the folks behind "the film whose name shall not be spoken" (hint: it rhymes with schmom shnight). When pressed for a reason for the rating, Screen Gems head Clint Culpepper said “You try not to make a movie for an audience that is older than your protagonist.” Now i'm really confused, since "Hell Night" is about college kids. In his defense though, at the time of the interview he was swimming in a pile of money ala Scrooge McDuck, so it was sort of hard to understand what he was saying.

In Real People News: 

If you have a friend who is possibly schizophrenic, it would not be a good idea to play a practical joke on him by falsely telling him his girlfriend has AIDS. I know that may seem cheeky and hilarious, but it's probably going to end in him stabbing her 32 times. Oh, and shenanigans on the author of the article for calling it a "Marijuana fueled attack". If anything that probably stopped him from stabbing her more.

This fat Robert Downey Jr. lookin guy has been arrested for cutting children's pictures out and pasting them onto porno shots. He gets bonus points for actually using paste (they still make that shit?) and getting caught so close to the release of "Iron Man". Thanks for being topical, guy!

8th grader gets charged with a felony for putting Nutter Butters in another student's lunchbox. The twist is that the student is deathly allergic to peanuts and the other kid knew it. He was also expelled. Add sodomy to that list and I think the kid will begin to get what he deserves.

On this day in history: 

1915: The German Army opens 5,700 canisters of chlorine gas upwind of French soldiers at Ypres. It is the first use of poison gas for military purposes.
