Akroyd gives more details on "Ghostbusters 3". Apparently the "young recruits" we've mentioned will be "cadets" at some kind of academy. That is AWESOME. He also says that they are going to do everything they can to get Sigourney Weaver on board, who seems to be the last holdout in restarting the franchise.
The plot is pretty standard but the title isn't. Today's awesome indie title award goes to Albino Farm. That is all.
If you live in New York or Las Angeles, you will see a teaser for Rob Zombie's "H2" before "Crank 2" this weekend. If you're not in those areas, tough luck. You will see Amy Smart's boobs though, and that is the greatest gift anyone could ask for.
In Real People News:
The founders of The Pirate Bay, one of the world's largest Torrent tracking sites, have been on trial for some time now in Sweden over the breaking of copyright law. Today the trial ended with each of the founders being fined 3.6 million each, and being sent to jail for one year. The case is expected to be appealed.
Bush Administration memos on torture released by the Obama administration revealed today that they had authorized "putting insects inside a confinement box" as a method of interrogation. Who knew they were taking cues from Jigsaw and Fear Factor! And you thought they were culturally inept.
1965: The FBI Laboratory in Washington reports their inability to make out the vocals on the hit single "Louie Louie." Thus, the Bureau is unable to determine whether the record constitutes obscene matter.
Just a warning... being April Fool's day today, you may see some erroneous horror news floating around the web. We'll do our best not to participate in the douchery, but as you probably know sometimes it's hard to discern the real from the fake. Ironically, this is the one day a year when you actually CAN believe something Robert Englund says in an interview, so keep your ears open for "Freddy Vs Jason Vs Chucky" news.
There's a new poster for this movie "Eve" that came out yesterday, but that's not the interesting news. People are (rightfully) remarking on the similarities between this and the comic book adaptation "Hack & Slash"... and by "similarities" I mean, it's the same exact plot. There's enough room in my heart for two sexy slasher hunters, but I'm not sure the rights holders to "Hack & Slash" are going to agree. We'll keep you updated on any legal shenanigans that may arise from this.
1996: Wilson Pickett arrested for possession of cocaine, after a screaming, bloodied woman is seen running from his house. Not sure what you'd say to your neighbors after that to stop them from calling the cops, but I think I'd go with the old gem, "Move along folks, nothing to see here."
