Comics Creepshow 18: Jonah Hex V2

In the Horror Headlines section of this site, there has been a lot of talk about a big screen adaptation of JONAH HEX. This movie may or may not get made and it may or may not star Josh Brolin. It is in that phase of limbo, where the possibility is very high that it might get scrapped altogether. But why make a film of the JONAH HEX comic to begin with, and why is HEX worthy of discussion on a horror site?

Horror Headlines: Friday December 5th, 2008

Full official trailer for "Friday the 13th", complete with lots of footage we haven't seen before. I dig it, and appreciate the little nods to the series as well as the past trailers. I'm still up in the air as to how it might turn out, but I'm optimistic.

A whole bunch of new images from "Feast III: The Happy Finish". I'm disappointed that the biker chicks have clothes on after they had clearly lost them at the end of the last one, but I would imagine this thing won't concern itself with such silly things as "continuity". The film picks up shortly after the second one, when a prophet leads our group of survivors to safety and reveals secrets about the beasts to them that allow them to fight back.

Holy crap, I need this new 3D "My Bloody Valentine" poster. Now THAT is freaking awesome.

Some "Terminator 4" footage ended up on Entertainment Tonight recently, and shows more from the film than we've seen so far. It was basically a tease to them revealing the trailer, but pretty compelling nonetheless. Thoughts?

Check the poster for Nic Cage's "The Knowing". The film is about a time capsule prophecy predicting the end of the world, that only Nic Cage can decode (and therefore save earth). Put anyone else in that role and this film sounds freaking awesome. Can Cage pull it off and rework some of his 90's magic? Probably not. Either way, it should be entertaining.

In Real People News: 

A Newfoundland woman has lost 3/4's of her outer layer of skin after a complication from simple antibiotics. That should make you squirm in your seat a bit.

Hitler's maid says he was a good guy. Well, now that we've got that cleared up...

Haha, now this billboard for a beer company in New Zealand should probably have sent up some red flags when making it's way through Public Relations. Still, you've got to chuckle.

On this day in history: 

1997: Fairfield, CA resident Alan Hall is rushed to the NorthBay Medical Center in a vain attempt to reattach his amputated penis. Hall informs police that the assailant, a mysterious woman named Brenda, had sliced it off at the base with an X-Acto knife following sex. Authorities ultimately determine the wound to be self-inflicted.

Back-Shelf Shamers

Okay, so we all have them. Whatever the reason maybe, we have a tiny corner of our DVD rack, that faces the wall and houses the unmentionables.This is the section of our DVD collection that we will never screen for our friends, family, or in some cases even fellow fans.I'm not exactly talking porn, though some may have elements. No, it's more of a multi-layered embarrassment or affection accompanied by embarrassment. Here's a short list of the DVD's I never watch with others, but I just can't bring myself to sell.

First Ghostbusters Game Video Released

The internet was a buzz a few months back when it was announced that there would be a new "Ghostbusters" video game in the works. This week, the first video from the game has been released and Voodoo Extreme has the goods!

Horror Headlines: Thursday December 4th, 2008

Man, you know what I thought when I woke up first thing this morning? That I could use a website to keep track of everything Rob Zombie does. My life is now complete.

Here's some interesting info on the adaptation of "World War Z", which is being written by Michael Straczynki of "Changeling" and "Babylon 5" fame. It sounds as if he's staying pretty true to the material, although he also mentions working with "notes" from the film's director Marc Foster, who was responsible for "Quantum of Solace". Not sure how everyone feels about that part.

John Carpenter is executive producing a remake of "They Live", his classic paranoia film starring Roddy Piper and Keith David. The remake will be a joint venture between Universal and Strike Entertainment, which is Zack Snyder's company, who directed the "Dawn of the Dead" remake. The announcement sucks, but Snyder's presence does give me hope.

Here's the last thing I expected to read today... Oscar Winner Hilary Swank to star in Hammer's next film titled "The Resident". Hmm, that's an interesting one.

In Real People News: 

Authorities have been wondering how some of the Mumbai terrorists managed to fight authorities for over 50 hours without any food or sleep. Today they have their answer... lots of Cocaine, LSD and Steroids. Holy shit, that's one lethal cocktail they had there.

This story about the long held tradition of putting pooping figures in Nativity scenes is wacky. It also reminds me about how I always used to stick a Ninja Turtle in ours and see how long it took my mom to notice and get pissed at us. Ahh the Holidays.

Good news for fellow Mac-owners out there... as Netflix streaming is now available for OSX, having graduated from its recent Beta to a full blown feature on the site. Sign up through Bloody Good Horror at the link and help support the site!

On this day in history:
