1951 Down Place goes vampire hunting with "Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter"

It's been some time since I've mentioned it last, but you may remember that I have a third podcast with my friends Brother D and Need a Nickname Scott over at Mail Order Zombie. The show is called 1951 Down Place and it's dedicated to Hammer Horror! With the release of The Woman in Black coming from the newly re-birthed Hammer Studios this weekend, I figured it would be a good time to start sharing my love off Hammer with you all.

Horror Headlines: Friday March 19th, 2010

Since I'm filling in for Fowler Friday this week, I'm going to start off your weekend with a swift kick to the nuts! You know Platinum Dunes and their love of remaking classic franchises? They've now set their sights on "The Monster Squad" for their next remake.

Though they titled the fourth film in the franchise "The Final Destination", Warner Brothers head Alan Horn revealed that they'll be making a fifth "Final Destination". Since they've already raided the gimmick that is 3-D, here's hoping they go old school and add ball shockers to the seats this time.

Even the newly raised from the dead Hammer Studios can't resist the remake band wagon but according to CEO Simon Oakes, they'll be remaking three of their own films. Titles up for the treatment are "Captain Kronos", "Quatermass" and "Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde".

Not content to rest on his mediocre success of "Alice in Wonderland", Tim Burton has already begun plans for his next film. Feeling a bit nostalgic, he's thinking about throwing together a stop motion animated version of "The Addams Family".

In Real People News: 

Jersey City, NJ police officials have captured a serial urinator who has been terrorizing women at bus stops since December. While the ladies waited casually for their morning commute, the perpetrator would stroll up behind them and let loose on their legs. So far this morning, the whereabouts of our own Joe Charnews is still in question. Don't pick up the soap Joe!

Jennifer Mercado found jury duty to be rather boring, so she used the time to swipe the wallet of a fellow juror. Pleased with her new find, she ran to a store across the street during their lunch break to wrack up purchases on the stolen credit cards.

On this day in history:
