corey haim

There were plenty of celebrities at the 2009 March Horrorhound Weekend. Many whose work I have loved for so many years: the leathery and grumpy gramps that is John Saxon; the still-boobtacular Adrienne Barbeau; the “must've ate some bad food and is feeling sick, wink wink” Jason Mewes; that one really fat guy who thinks he can pull off a Freddy costume...they were all there. And as much as I'd like to meet them all, to do so at a convention just feels so, well, informal. Professional. Impersonal.

But none of that mattered to Corey Haim.

So by now we've all heard the news about Mr. Corey Haim passing away this morning. An autopsy will be done but I think we've all pretty much figuring it's got something to do with a drug overdose.

Liev Shrieber confirms in an interview that he will not be returning for "Scream IV" since his character was killed off. And here I was thinking some convoluted 'oh he survived!' plot would be a good fit for the "Scream" franchise.

Chloe Moretz, star of the upcoming remake "Let Me In", gives us the scoop on the art direction for the film. Thankfully, Chloe assures us that their vampires "aren't cool".

Screen Gems have begun to leak their info on the upcoming "Quarantine 2" with the announcement that they've hired John Pogue to write and direct as well as their plans to take the sequel in a different direction than its Spanish original.

Actor Corey Haim has been found dead. A drug overdose is currently the leading suspicion behind his death. Condolences to the Haim family on their loss.

If you were worried about the cliff hanger ending of "The Lost Boys 2", fear no longer! Word is that The Lost Boys 3: The Thirst is about to begin shooting! Returning are Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander as the frog brothers. No word on Corey Haim yet and if we're lucky, it will stay that way.

The trailer for Stan Helsing is now online. Packed with some high end humor parodying the likes of Freddy, Jason, Pinhead and Leatherface, this has highbrow written all over it! In actuality, it would appear that the only thing separating this from "Scary Movie 6" is a Wayans brother.

David Cronenberg to remake his own "The Fly" remake. Wait... what? Really? Sadly, yes.

"Creep" director Christopher Smith taps Sean Bean for his next film, "Black Death". The film is set in an apocalyptic medieval world facing the bubonic plague, which should prove interesting. It could also turn out just like "Doomsday," which wouldn't be that bad either.

Plot details for the two, yes two, new "Ju-On" sequels, due out on June 27th, have surfaced. Judging from the promotional pictures, the ghost girl still needs a hair cut.

Corey Haim, and a host of "Friday the 13th" alums including Ari Lehman, Warrington Gillette and others have signed on for a new indie slasher called "The Girl". Director Travis Bowen claims that the movie is just like "Friday the 13th," except with a Playboy model (Lisa Neeld) as the killer instead of a hulking dude in a mask. Judging by the cast, it kind of seems like a bootleg Horrorhound Weekend reunion to me.

So, it took me a while (my deepest apologies, folks) but I've finally managed to sit down and hammer my way through the video from Horror Hound Weekend at the end of March.

There's still video from Friday night to go through, and an entire compilation from Saturday is completed and should be uploaded shortly. This is from that compilation, but it's so insanely awesome I felt I had to pull it out and give it its own video too.
