"Backmask" is the most confusing title for a movie I've ever heard but it's actually a good old fashioned "record backwards letting out a demon" type romp. Excited? What if I was to tell you that "13 Going On 30" alum Brittany Curran has been added to the cast? Are you excited now? Well that was a test and you just failed. I hope you're happy.
Why the hell not! MTV has dropped news that they're beginning production on a TV series based on the popular "Scream" franchise. No word as of yet if Wes Craven, or anyone else from the series for that matter, will be involved with the project but word around campus is I'll make stupid comments about it for the next few weeks and then just ignore it all together. More on this story as it develops.
And here we go. "FDR: American Badass" is apparently not the next Kid rock album but a full fledged movie about our 32nd president riding around in a wheelchair trying to stop polo spreading werewolves. Serious. That's a real thing happening. The film has been picked up by Screen Media for distribution to VOD and DVD. Eventually we'll get to a point where Jimmy Carter is battling trolls. Then we'll know we've gone to far.
"Category Six" is a new found footage flick about a group of high school students who try to survive a category six tornado. Arlen Escarpeta,the guy who tried to beat it to a clothing catalog in the "Friday the 13th" remake, has been cast in the film as one of the high schoolers along side Alycia Debnam-Carey, who has a sour puss. Both are way too old to be high school students.
To see boobies in 3D or not to see boobies in 3D. That is the question. It's a tough one, and unfortunately we're all going to have to answer it because Dimension films has just dropped that "Piranha 3DD" will be released both theatricality and on VOD at the same time. So will the dirtbag in me who wants to see bouncy things in 3D win over the part of me that hates seeing sunlight. I for one can't wait to see how this turns out.
There's so many genre shows in the works I almost forgot that there's already one I watch and kind of like. It's "American Horror Story". It's fun to learn things about each other isn't it? But the news here is that Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Lily Rabe will all be returning for Season 2 as different characters. The story this season will take place on the East Coast and focus on Jessica Lange's character. I also really enjoy ice cream and Neil Diamond. I love you.
New movie alert! Oh god I love new movie alerts. The project is called "The Occult" and already has Rufus Sewell, Anne Heche, and Alycia Debnam-Carey in the cast. What's more it'll be directed by Christian E. Christiansen who directed "The Roomate" and that movie was terrible! Are you pumped? I was too excited to read the plot, but I did skim it and there's something about the devil's daughter coming to earth and a small town with some girls and some killings. Oh man, it's the best Monday ever.
Good for Julia Stiles. She's landed the lead role in the upcoming NBC series "Midnight Sun" about a FBI agent trying to track down a cult that mysteriously disappeared. I believe we're one step closer to finally seeing a "Save the Last Dance 2".
I've always though it would be cool to be in the Guinness Book of World Records. So did this guy in Sri Lanka apparently, because he attempted to break the record for longest time buried alive. He died though so I don't think he wins and there's a ton of people who have been buried dead for longer than him, so I think he's kind of f'ed.
