2001 maniacs

Horror Headlines: Tuesday June 14th, 2011

Hey do you like sexy ladies doing sexy dances? Sure, we all do! Well here's a new clip from "Mother's Day" which not only has that but also some creepy looking guys enjoying the show said sexy girl played by Briana Evigan is putting on. "Mother's Day" has no specific release date but should see the light of day sometime before the end of the summer. You should have read this entire post in the voice of Sally Struthers.

If there's one thing that "Repo! The Genetic Opera" taught us it's that not even Bill Moseley can save a crappy movie. But none the less he's been cast in the upcoming film "Leatherface 3D" in the role of Drayton, a nod to the role Jim Siedow played in the first two Texas Chainsaw films. So maybe old Billy boy can make this one magical. Maybe the next "2001 Maniacs" will win an Oscar, too.

I've never hid the fact that I believe Dennis Quaid is a cold blooded killer in real life. So I like to think the new movie "Beneath the Darkness" is something of a cry for help from the people in Hollywood who know the truth. In the movie Quaid plays a local hero who is actually turns out to be a psychopathic killer. This might be a documentary.

And lastly here's a new trailer for "Cowboys & Aliens" which hits theaters on July 29th. The trailer is chock full of, you guessed it, aliens and cowboys. Not necessarily in that order. But there's also about a half second shot of what looks to be a nude Olivia Wilde. Or it might of been Giada De Laurentiis from The Food Network. I always get those two mixed up.

In Real People News: 

It's been a long long time since a news story actually made me chuckle but here's a heartwarming tale about a 18 year old New York kid who has been brought up charges after he tried to move his girlfriend's family into a mansion that he didn't own. Apparently he tried to convince them he inherited the house and even brought them over to show them the place. Unfortunately the real owners showed up during all this and ruined the entire thing. Party poopers.

There's tons or stories out there about pit bulls going ape shit and messing people up but I think this is the first time I've seen a story about two pit bulls that actually ripped a man's arm off. Don't worry, there's a happy ending to the whole thing though. That's right, they killed the dogs. Are you smiling now?

Horror Headlines: Thursday October 22, 2009

Director Tim Sullivan has had a busy news day. Not only has he announced that the sequel to his "2001 Maniacs" remake has the new title of "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams", he has also released three new pictures from the movie. The most important items of note is that Robert Englund has been replaced by Bill Mosely, and Christa Campbell in a milkmaid costume.

In quite possibly the oddest news of the day, The Weather Channel has announced it will be adding movies to its channel lineup. Starting out with a showing of "A Perfect Storm" on Oct. 30th, the lineup shows that it will be a weekly string of weather themed movies. Most notable to us horror fans is Stephen King's "Misery", because of the snow.

From the unexpected and unwanted reboot desk comes word that a script for a new "Crow" movie has been turned in and the studios dig it. Written by Stepehn Norrington who helmed "Blade", the movie is said to not be a remake but a whole new character.

Dread Central has posted a slew of new "Stan Helsing" clips, and I still remain unexcited!

In Real People News: 

An alternative Denver newspaper is hiring a new reviewer. In particular, they're looking for a writer to review the state marijuana dispenseries and their products. Good luck getting them to meet deadlines.

The King lives on through expensive hair. Elvis' hair, chopped from his head upon his enlistment to the US Army, fetches $15k from a recent auction. Someday, the hair that's quickly making its exit from my own scalp will make me rich.

On this day in history: 

1836 – Sam Houston is inaugurated as the first President of the Republic of Texas.

2001 Maniacs (REVIEW)

As far as horror fans are concerned, remakes are generally looked down upon these days. We're all aware of this. From time to time though they do manage to be justified. "2001 Maniacs" is no doubt a huge cult classic, but in being so it also suffers from a lot low-budget side effects. Little known to the casual movie watcher, beloved by many hardcore fans, Herschell Gordon Lewis's "2000 Maniacs" was cheap, grainy and disgusting; which is why it was so well loved.
