Horror Headlines 4/30/08

The German poster for Mandy Lane is just more proof that this film should go theatrical, now. Will we ever see this one on the big screen? I guess only time will tell.

Platinum Dunes has an official site, and it's part of Bloody-Disgusting.com. Platinum Dunes is the company behind a slate of recent remakes, from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" to "Friday the 13th". Also, possible conflict of interest there? Um... yes.

June 3rd will see a Blu-Ray release of "Cloverfield" by Paramount Home Entertainment. Gotta love a big blockbuster film shot on a camcorder getting a hi-def release. It's a weird and wonderful world we live in people.

After winning a few BAFTA Cymru Awards, Julian Richards ("The Last Horror Movie") latest film "Summer Scars" has been snatched up for distro in the US by TLA films. The film, from the synopsis, sort of sounds like a mix between "Stand By Me" and "The Hitcher". "The Last Horror Movie" was a great little indie flick by way of "Man Bites Dog" so I'm definitely looking forward to what Richards has up his sleeve next.

In Real People News: 

So if you're going to sniff gas, an admittedly bad decision to begin with, is it too much to ask that you not try and heat it up with a lighter?. It might just be me, but something seems off about that equation. The kid ended up with burns on 45% of his body.

On this day in history: 

1993: During a quarterfinals match in Hamburg, deranged tennis fan Gunter Parche sneaks up on Monica Seles and stabs her in the back with a boning knife. Parche was just paving the way for Steffi Graf, whom he was actively stalking, to take the top ranking from Seles. His plan succeeds.

Crystal Castles

I found out about Crystal Castles completely by accident. I saw the band's name on the front page of the all music guide the other day and it reminded me of the trackball-controlled "pac-man as a magical bear" arcade game of the same name that I loved when I was a kid.

DS Horror: When You Want Scares to Go

Do you love the film "The Ring" so much you wish you could play a video game version of it? Well, guess what, you're in luck... sort of.

If you liked the original "Abominable", about a giant Sasquatch, well you're in luck, because they're making a sequel! I'm guessing Louis is jumping for joy right now.

New "X-Files 2" Stills. I think I'm going to refuse to call it by it's real name, "X-Files: I Want To Believe" from now on. Why? Because I can, that's why.

Gentle Giant's new Freddy Krueger statue is pretty freaking sweet. You can see a huge pic of it at the link, or wait until the next issue of Horror Hound Magazine hits store shelves, any day now!

In Real People News: 

Old man confesses to to holding his daughter captive for 25 years and fathering 7 of her children. No joke here really, that's just creepy.

A 300 lb inmate in Arkansas has lost 100 lbs since being put in prison, and now he's suing the state because he says he's not being adequately fed. Sorry folks, as soon as I read that I blacked out from anger and hit my head on the floor. What was I saying again?

7 year old Florida boy goes on a joy ride in his grandmother's SUV causing a whole mess of damage, and it happened in my town. And so ends today's edition of "I live in the most retarded place in America".

The Dutch Parliment is trying to ban the sale of Magic Mushrooms, unknowingly getting rid of the one reason why people would want to visit there in the first place.

On this day in history: 

1945: With Allied forces closing in on Berlin, Adolf Hitler marries Eva Braun in their fortified bunker. They kill themselves the following day.
