Horror Headlines: Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

The official site for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans", has gotten a huge update, including new media and a shiny new interface. I will not argue with anything that brings more Rhona Mitra in my life.

"Hatchet" director Adam Green talks to Fangoria about how producers are hounding him to make "Hatchet 2". He's even had an offer that would put the film in theaters next September, but he wants to wait to make sure the story is right. He also maintains that he isn't interested in directing the second one, but doesn't seem to have completely ruled the possibility out.

Warner Bro's "I Am Legend" prequel has morphed into a sequel, with Will Smith playing a huge part of the development. People wonder why I hate Will Smith. It's because he is a buzz kill. You could have the most dangerous, boundary pushing script in the world, and Will Smith could come in as a producer and you'd wind up making The Teletubbies. He sucks, plain and simple.

In Real People News: 

So the supposed serial killer who was offing Japanese pension officials, was really just avenging the death of his pet 34 years ago. Kind of sounds like the plot of an 80's slasher, no?

Speaking of over the top movie deaths, British born playboy has been convicted of throwing his model girlfriend off the side of a cliff. Doesn't anyone use guns anymore?

On this day in history: 

1997: The Weekly World News reports that the Japanese have a fetishistic attraction to US Attorney General Janet Reno. Excuse me while I vomit.

Entry 4: What are Your Favorite Zombie Flix?

This is good to know...

Hey party people! Time is of the essence so I'll get right to it...

Return to Sleepaway Camp (REVIEW)

Twenty five years ago Angela Baker terrorized Camp Arawak after her psychological breakdown. Two other times beyond that she returned to wreak havoc and take revenge on camp bullies. Cut to today; welcome to Camp Manabe, run by greedy Frank and his half partner Ronnie. Arawak has been shutdown and demolished, but Angela’s been locked up for years, so no need to worry about that. So it’s business as usual for summer camp hijinks. Counselors screw, kids horse around, and bullies pick on the awkward. Enter Alan; he’s overweight, smelly, strange, and pushy.

Dexter 3.09 "About Last Night"

Well, what d'ya know? Not only did Miguel go rogue and break the Code almost immediately after being introduced to the ways of bad guy killin', it now looks like he's been setting up Dexter from the start. I'm looking forward to an exceptionally pissed off Dexter in the last few episodes.

Horror Headlines: Monday, November 24th, 2008

Adrien Brody talks about starring in Dario Argento's next film, "Giallo". I sort of want to be excited about this film, except I've seen Argento's last few. They were, how you say, "not good".

Concept art for sexy fem-aliens in James Cameron's "Avatar". I can already tell this film is going to make me uncomfortable, in the best way possible.

The guys behind the "Halloween" comic series over the last few years, are prepping an issue called "Halloween: Mark of the Thorn", which will be a continuation of the Tommy Doyle/Thorn storyline that started in H5 and came to an incredibly confusing ending in H6: Curse of Michael Myers. I'm not a big comic book guy, but I might consider picking this up, just to see a take on it 10 years later.

In Real People News: 

Man suicides on live Argentinian TV. This one had nothing to do with the economy, but if you notice, they're getting closer and closer to the US. Should we start a pool to see how long it takes to happen here?

Ever hear someone on the bus argue with the driver about how much feces is on a seat? Ya, me neither. But based on the story I'm guessing the driver didn't realize that no amount of shit on a public transportation seat is acceptable.

Apparently you can split someone's skull open with a pickax. I just always wondered if that scene in "Return of the Living Dead" was accurate. I guess the answer is yes... besides the whole yellow reanimated corpse thing.

On this day in history: 

William Duell, murderer, hanged at Tyburn in London. He is not killed immediately, though this is not noticed by the executioner. Deull later awakes on the dissection table.
