Breed Review

Take a quick glance at the cover and synopsis of “Breed,” by Chase Novak, and you’ll instantly think of Ira Levin’s “Rosemary’s Baby.” It’s an easy comparison, both are horror novels involving pregnancy and children. Dig a little deeper, and you’ll see other connections--both novels are set in upscale Manhattan and involve characters who are all elite and well-to-do. And just like Levin, Novak seems to use his novel to make statements about the wealthy just as much as scare the reader.

No word on what sort of release it'll actually be getting but it looks like Rob Zombie's "Lords Of Salem" will finally see the light of day on April 26th, 2013. If that seems too far away then you might want to pick up the novelization that will hit shelves on March 12th. But honestly that's really just a little over a month earlier and if you can't wait a month you might want to see a shrink or something. You've got problems buddy.

I'm not really sure if this is exciting news but it looks like Robert Patrick will in fact return to "True Blood" next season as a full blooded cast member. For those of you still play catch up Patrick played that father of Alcide the werewolf. For those of you who are completely lost "True Blood" is a show about vampires staring the girl who I always think is the girl from "My So Called Life" but she isn't. She does have giant teeth though... TEEFF!

Summit Entertainment has picked up the rights to the big screen adaptation of Chase Novak's "Breed". Burr Steers will write and direct the film about a couple who are turned into bloodthirsty freaks after they try out a experimental fertility treatment. And I thought the worst thing about fertility treatments were having kids. Am I right? I'll be here all week.

In Real People News: 

There's nothing more adorable than a couple of cute kids, ages 7 and 11 for instance, greeting you in a church parking lot. That is of course unless those kids are holding a gun and are robbing you. Then it kid of sucks.

If you're a 19 year old kid and you break into someone's house you better damn well sure check to see if that guy is home and is currently employed as a boxer. Because no matter how much you plead with him he's going to punch you in the face and then you'll just look like a pansy in your mug shot.

Here's a nice little BTS video from "Saw VI". Mostly fluff, but not a bad watch for a minute and a half. The newest installment lands this Halloween.

Van Damme comes to horror? After his next action film he says he's all set to star in "Breed", about "a village where strange things happen". Boy does that guy have a way with words. I'm sure this will turn out just great.

It doesn't have a wacky title, but today's Indie shoutout goes to "A Mannequin in Static". Go check out the trailer at the site, comes recommended from me.

Mezco snags the rights to "Halloween 2" toy production. They're usually a solid company when it comes to these things, so no worries here.

In Real People News: 

You can't help but feel at least a little sympathy for this North Caronlina woman who, faced with the huge medical bills of her 96 year old mother, decided the only thing she could do is abandon her at a Salvation Army. That is of course until you read on and find out that she immediately took a vacation to Disney World afterward. Kind of ruins the whole sympathy factor. Hope she enjoyed the rides.

You've heard of the jilted lover who decides to cut off her man's penis for revenge. Now I give you: jilted lover who ties firecrackers to her man's penis for revenge. Holy shit!

Did a BBC photographer capture an image of a ghost recently? Kind of hard to tell by the microscopic image on the site. Sort of just looks like dust to me.

On this day in history: 

1991: Cannibal killer Jeffrey Dahmer manages to convince Milwaukee police that the dazed naked boy found staggering on the sidewalk and bleeding from the ass is his drunken lover, instead of a 14-year-old boy struggling to fight the effects of date-rape drugs. The MPD officers chalk it up to a "homosexual lovers spat" and escort them both back to Dahmer's apartment. After the cops leave, Jeffrey strangles the boy, rapes his corpse, and eats some flesh from the carcass of his twelfth victim.
