Horror Headlines: Monday December 6th, 2010

"Battle: Los Angeles" is my favorite Rage Against the Machine album that I never actually heard and they've finally made a movie about it. What's better? There's a new trailer for the alien invasion flick. What that has to do with the album I have no idea but I assume it's some sort of weird political thing I don't get.

The MPAA has taken it upon themselves to ban the poster for the upcoming Stevan Mena movie "Bereavement". The poster depicts a child walking with his father while holding a butcher knife. Apparently the MPAA isn't a fan of toddlers walking around with murder weapons. I don't get it.

Aaron Echhart has officially confirmed the heartbreaking news that Two-Face will not being appearing in "The Dark Knight Rises". And when I say heartbreaking I really mean to Eckhart because last week it was confirmed that Heath Ledger would be making an appearance as The Joker and he's dead. Got to be a blow to the old ego.

Finally! "Beastly" is back in the spotlight with a new trailer and a big thumbs up from me. For those of you not familiar with the film all you need to know is that it stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris and Peter Krause. The movie was delayed months ago for being so awesome that the studio worried that people's heads would explode from excitement if it was released in the summer months.

In Real People News: 

"Jenkem" is a hallucinogenic drug made from the gas of fermented sewage... and one man making it in a Florida apartment got his entire building condemned from the smell. Apparently he had his entire apartment covered with human waste to the point that it was starting to drip into the apartment below. I just threw up in my mouth thinking about it.

Tis the season in Idaho, kids. We're all drinking egg nog, the kids are out sledding and the white supremacists are out making KKK snowmen. It really warms your heart.

Universal Pictures "The Thing" prequel has gained some muscle as Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje signs on to the cast. You may know Mr. Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Mr. Eko from ABC's "Lost" or as Simon Abedisi in HBO's "Oz".

"Buried" director Rodrigo Cortes is starting to turn Hollywood heads despite the fact that his first film hasn't even been released yet. Signing on for his next project, the director will be tackling "Red Lights", a paranormal thriller involving the human brain. He continues to draw the star power as well with Sigourney Weaver signed on to star.

Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, the film makers responsible for the likes of "Date Movie" and "Epic Movie" are aiming their sights on "Twilight" for their next sendup. Could this be the first of their movies that people actually flock to see?

In case you were one of the three people looking forward to CBS Film's "Beastly" this July, I have bad news for you; the darker rendition of "Beauty and the Beast" has been bumped from its July 30th release date.

In Real People News: 

An Italian teacher decided he had had enough of students wearing their low slung jeans to school so he took it upon himself to show them how ridiculous it looked. For some reason, he decided thatdropping his pants in front of his class would be the best way to do it.

Those crazy teens are at it again as they've invented a new way to get trashed. Called 'eyeballing', the kids have taken to speeding up their intoxication by pouring vodka into their eyes and letting the alcohol be absorbed.

On this day in history: 

1897 - The first copies of the classic vampire novel Dracula, by Irish writer Bram Stoker, appear in London bookshops on this day in 1897.
