bubba nosferatu

Horror Headlines: Friday April 17th, 2009

Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell" has officially been rated PG-13. Apparently there are people surprised by this... haven't you seen the trailer?

Poster for that French zombie film "Mutants" I told you about last week. I'm sure it doesn't mean the same thing in English, but I was really intrigued by the words "PLUS TARD" on the poster. That's a new one.

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.

Ron Perlman says they'll probably be shooting "Bubba Nosferatu" this Fall. I still don't think he'll make a great Elvis, but since he's terrifying I'm pretty sure he wins every argument no matter what.

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.

Moral of this story, don't try to rob a hairdresser in Russia. She's liable to beat your ass, tie you up, kidnap you and make you her sex slave for 2 days straight. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

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.

Just when I thought I had heard of all the most embarrassing ways to die, here comes British Comedian Mark Cassidy with this gem: Overdosing on nitrous oxide (laughing gas) while watching internet porn. [golf clap]

On this day in history: 

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.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday April 1st, 2009

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.

Ron Perlman says that if all goes well he'll be starring in Don Coscarelli's "Bubba Nosferatu" this fall. Perlman, of "Hellboy" fame, is replacing Bruce Campbell as "Elvis" from the first film. I love Perlman, but I'm not sure he's capable of filling either of those roles. We'll have to wait and see.

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.

Thomas Dekker of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" talks about a few upcoming horror projects he's starring in. This should really please all of the Google searchers who seem to end up on our site while searching for people who also hate this guy.

Will Arnett and Michael Shannon have joined the cast of the "Jonah Hex" adaptation. After finally making my way through "Arrested Development" on DVD, hearing Arnett's name in conjunction with any project pretty much turns me into a giddy school girl.

Say what you want about the Weinstein's, they're definitely shrewd business men. They're continuing that trend by buying all the French horror they can while at the Cannes film festival. The way things have gone lately with the horror coming from our froggy friends, I can't say I blame them.

In Real People News: 

Hit someone with your car and accidentally kill them? It's all good, just leave a really nice apology note before you flee the scene. Your mother will be so proud.

There is so much panic in Egypt over an alleged text message that supposedly will kill you shortly after receiving it, that the health minister had to make a statement assuring people everything's ok. So let me get this straight, the Egyptians are now remaking shitty J-horror films, only in real life? Sarah Michelle Gellar's going to be all over this.

Wow, it looks like scientists in Britain are really close to using a giant "sun laser" to create clean nuclear fusion. After that, I say we take this thing and go destroy Tatooine. I never liked the cut of their jib anyways.

Live in India? It's your lucky day, doctors are now offering a deal where you can get your gun license fast tracked if you also get a vasectomy. Insert your own "shooting blanks" joke here.

On this day in history: 

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."
