Horror Headlines 4/16/08

And the "Midnight Meat Train" saga continues... this time BD is reporting that a recent test screening scored through the roof, and it has raised hopes that the film may go theatrical. You can also check out a new sweet still from "Train" here.

IGN has a new poster for Uwe Boll's "Postal", and it's just as offensive as you've come to expect stuff from this movie to be. And yes, I'm going to continue to report on this movie to the chagrin of well, everyone. You can see this one May 23rd of this year, opposite "Indiana Jones and the Aging Action Star". You can guess which theater I'll be in.

Gillian Anderson will be in next month's Maxim Magazine as promotion for "The X Files 2". Wow, they're really pulling out all the stops for this one aren't they? Disappointing spread and interview at the link.

Matthew Bright ("Freeway") will be directing "The Manson Girls", which we previously reported will be starring Lindsay Lohan and her unfortunately ginger complexion.

In Real People News: 

Zombies raising money to help fight Cancer? I had no idea they were so philanthropic.

So, a woman, posing as a man, has been arrested after the urine of his/her five year old child (that he/she used for a drug test) came back positive for Cocaine and Opiates. Got all that? Ya, me either, but it all sounds pretty messed up.

Yet another high school attack video has surfaced online recently. In this video, at the link, check out some butch chick attacking a high school student with a metal chair, all WWE style. And so ends todays slate of morbidly curious stories.

On this day in history: 

1943: Chemist Albert Hofmann inadvertently experiences the world's first acid trip when a tiny quantity of lysergic acid diethylamide accidently seeps through the skin of his finger. After leaving work early, he went home and settled into "a not unpleasant intoxicated condition." Then he had solid two hours of visual hallucinations: "I perceived an uninterrupted stream of fantastic pictures, extraordinary shapes with intense, kaleidoscopic play of colors." It will be another three days before Hofmann gets up the courage to swallow 250 micrograms and ride his bicycle home.

Prom Night Shot for "R" Rating?

From Bloody Disgusting:

"Jackboots for Jesus"

You see folks, this whole 'horror movie blogger' thing started as a lead in to another dream. For years I've said "I want to be a writer.", then never did anything about it. So, I started writing about movies. While I still love writing about movies, I needed more. Thus my 'short story' career was started.

It's been in the starting phases for a long time now.

So goes the biz though. Many rejections later, I received this tasty nugget in my inbox this afternoon:

King's "Children" Revisited

This is part 1 in my series: The Decade Long Stephen King Cinematic Orgy

By 1980 Stephen King's was one of the single most marketable names in all of entertainment. To this day, perhaps no one man can claim as large an influence on the direction of horror literature or even film as King. This fact is made all the more interesting when one considers that most of his best work had been published and brought to the screen by the time the first Clinton took office.

Ingrid Pitt: The Queen of Scream

Please Note: I've kept this as work safe as possible, be beware: thar be cleavage below!

Scream Queens have been around for long time, some would say as far back as Elsa Lanchester in 1935. For the modern era, these ladies normally gain their title after a slew of movies in their portfolio, both good and bad with memorable performances in all.
