at the moutains of madness

Horror Headlines: Tuesday January 8th, 2013

Well this sounds pretty cool. Director Kyle Kuchta is hard at work on a new documentary focusing on the horror convention circuit and the devoted fans who travel across the country to support the genre. The film is titled "Fantasum" and will continue filming in March at Monster Mania in Cherry Hill NJ. Right now the flick is set to come out in May so I assume I'll be getting a call asking if they can film me getting drunk at a hotel bar and yelling Rusted Root songs at people.

It looks like maybe Guillermo del Toro hasn't decided to put his big screen adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "At the Mountains Of Madness" on the shelf after all. Or at least he confirmed that he wants to give the project another go with Universal, the folks who shut the project down because of rating and budget concerns. I know what you're concerned about and good news, Tom Cruise is still attached. I know! How the hell did they get him!?

Good news folks! Tom Six and star Dieter Laser have buried the hatchet and "The Human Centipede 3" is going to begin filming in May. Wait no, that's awful news.

And finally some sad news today. David R. Ellis, the director behind "Snakes On a Plane", "Shark Night" and a few other so bad they're good flicks passed away yesterday while filming his next movie down in South Africa. Ellis was 60 and working with Samuel Jackson again on a live action version of the Japanese anime film "Kite".

In Real People News: 

Shooting a home intruder is pretty nuts but still understandable. Shooting a home intruder in the face might be able to be chalked up to bad/good luck. Shooting a home intruder in the face five times... I'm not really sure what you call that.

Good news! We finally got a video of a live giant squid. Better news! We did it before those damn commies.

Horror Headlines: Friday September 24th, 2010

There's some new photos from "Scream 4" online and it might just be me but Courteney Cox is slowly starting to look like the Ghostface guy. I think I just figured out the ending! They're twins separated at birth. Genius!

Guillermo del Toro is keeping his fingers crossed that he can cast Ron Perlman in his next flick, "At The Mountains Of Madness". The film is based on the H. P. Lovecraft novella of the same name and will apparently be in full on 3D. Ron Perlman in 3D? Get ready ladies!

Chloe Moretz, who you know from "Kick Ass" and "Let Me In" has landed the lead role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the popular comic book "Emily the Strange". Exciting news for her, but even more exciting news for us in 10 years when she starts doing smack and goes off the deep end. I can't wait!

In Real People News: 

With all the blood sucking, porn like sex scenes and foul language I'm a little confused as to why this didn't happen sooner. "Sesame Street" will be doing a parody of "True Blood" called "True Mud" for it's new season which starts next week. Muppet Vampire sex, think about it.

On this day in history: 

1996 - The United States and the world's other major nuclear powers signed a treaty to end all testing and development of nuclear weapons.
