Horror Headlines: Thursday September 17th, 2009

Clive Barker's comic book "Seduth" will be presented in 3D when it's released in October. The story follows "a man driven by his darkest impulses to oblivion and back after being exposed tot he contents of a priceless diamond".

Picture this: A sitcom called "Coffee & Donuts" starring Joe Lynch and Adam Green. Ya, that was the same reaction I had. Apparently it will be based on Green's first short film, and had originally been pitched to UPN a few years ago. Now that the rights have floated back Green's way, he is pitching it as a vehicle for him and Lynch, and studios are showing interest. This may be enough to get me back into watching regular television. Stay tuned!

Sony has picked up the rights to "[REC]2" from the Toronto International Film Festival. Sony was previously responsible for the remake "Quarantine", as well as releasing the original film on DVD.

First TV spot for "Saw VI". So, it's officially that time of year when your non horror-loving friends start saying "they're really making ANOTHER one of these???".

In Real People News: 

Canadian man jailed for life after 19th DUI. I'd say it's pretty safe to say at that point that he's going to do it again.

This guy was a little smarter. He beat a drunk driving rap by claiming he drank all of the alcohol in the time between when he stopped and when the police got to his car. The court could not prove that he was drunk when he was actually driving, so now he's free. Now THAT takes balls.

On this day in history: 

1939: The Soviet Union invades Poland, to fulfill its end of the secret protocols contained in the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact. They partition the country along pre-decided lines.

Adam Green and Joe Lynch are "American Douchebags in London"

Horror directors Adam Green ("Hatchet") and Joe Lynch ("Wrong Turn 2") have once again commemorated their trip to London's Frightfest in a series of short films paying homage to favorite horror movies.


The films are pretty funny, although you'll need Flash to see them.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Guillermo Del Toro discusses his inspiration for his "Strain" trilogy of vampire novels, the first of which is due to hit bookshelves on Junes 2nd.

Robert Downey JR wants to play Edgar Allen Poe in a script written by Sylvester Stallone. I know, I thought he was off drugs too, this is so sad. (JOKE, people)

So, we decided the other day that this new Filmax flick "Paintball" has a cool trailer, but was really playing the paintball schtick up way too much for me to take it seriously. As you can see though, they've really kept it classy with the poster. UGH.

Adam Green is hoping he'll get to shoot "Hatchet 2" next winter. Nothing is set in stone yet, but the idea and the interest is there, now it's just all about the pieces coming together. I for one would definitely watch if Green were to turn out another hilarious slasher in this series.

Speaking of interesting, if not totally amazing slasher films, it turns out that there's a Tobe Hooper-less sequel to his "Toolbox Murders" remake currently in the works. This one promises to "rise far above the last Toolbox". Guess we'll see.

Joe Dante won't ever write or direct a "Gremlins 3", although he does see it happening at some point in the future (just without him, apparently). He also says he thinks the guys who made that infamous "fan film" should be responsible for another sequel, and that he's currently working on two spectacular Blurays of the original films.

In Real People News: 

Cult leader and convicted pedophile escapes prison via helicopter. I take back what I said about the prison escape scene in last year's "Prom Night", this story actually makes that realistic in comparison.

Moral of this story, you don't want to ever meet the man who can take repeated taserings and still come up shooting. If you do, he's probably going to kill the shit out of you, just because he can.

Here's a way to get back at your father for all those chores you had to do when you were a kid... how about cut out his pacemaker with a pocket knife? I kid, of course, but the story at the link proves that it's actually possible to do such a thing. Read at your own risk.

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.
