Horror Headlines: Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

"No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!". Very funny Mr. Bill Murray but I beg to differ. But apparently that's the note he included in a box he sent to Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman that also contained a shredded copy of the current "Ghostbusters 3" script. Look I get the guy is trying to be all Mr. indie and stuff but he also did not one but two "Garfield" movies so what's say ya make with the funny and go put on the pack, buddy.

Here's the first trailer for "Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection". If you just read that sentence and got excited then you might want to see some sort of specialist. You probably don't need to know the plot but there's some zombies obviously and a bunch of people held up on a farm. More importantly it looks like it was shot on a VHS camera from the mid-80's.

The year is winding down and it's a slow ass news day so here's some details on the upcoming "Shark Night" Blu-Ray release. A survival guide, some extra scenes and a clips of people being frightened by a fake shark will be included on the disc that will be released on January 3rd. Unfortunately the movie "Shark Night" will also be included so it's a toss up if you want to get it or not.

And to keep the 'China White' fun going, here's a study that found cocaine was on 90% of the baby changing tables they tested in public locations. This explains why my little bundle of joy is so happy after we change her at the mall. Of course an hour later she's throwing crap at us and slurring like Keith Richards.

"Troll Hunter" is a Norwegian film about a group of students who hunt trolls. See where they got the name from? Well the clever PR folks have put up an official application so you can become an honorary troll hunter. Sounds awesome, right? Sure the entire application is in Norwegian but who doesn't speak that these days. Those Viking lovers are so hot right now.

To capture the magic of Bill Murray's appearance in "Zombieland" the makers of "Zombieland 2" are currently on the hunt for a star of equal caliber to make a surprise appearance. No surprise there, unless you haven't gotten around to seeing the first film yet in which case I apologize for ruining the surprise for you. I'm a bad person.

Here's a trailer for "Grave Encounter's", a new found footage film about a group of reality show hosts who go around looking at haunted houses. The catch is apparently they actually find something. Not like those ass clowns on "River Monsters", they haven't found one actual monster.

Am I the only one who still gets Judd Nelson and Robert Downey Jr. mixed up? I can't be. Well anyway here's a trailer for the new sci-fi/horror flick called "Shadow People" staring "Iron Man" himself. Wait, no... the other one. Which one was in "The Breakfast Club"? Yeah that one, he's the guy in this movie.

Dan Aykroyd has fired off some info around the upcoming "Ghostbusters 3" film and here's a short run down. Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver are still in. Bill Hader, Anna Faris and Eliza Dushku are still maybes. And lastly no confirmation on me, but I assume my offer is coming any day now.

In Real People News: 

Hey Harry Potter sickos! Warner Bros. has trademarked Quidditch lingerie so in the off chance you can convince a woman to actually come over to your parent's basement, soon you'll have something creepy to ask her to put on.

I'm pretty sure this is how "Repo Men" started. A Russian man who forked over cash for his girlfriends breast implants now wants his assets back that they've broken up. Alright so he isn't going to go over to her house and take them back, but the hospital may. Probably not in a back alley or anything cool though. We can hope.

Dan Aykroyd delivered some positive news recently about the script writing process of the long awaited "Ghostbusters 3". Apparently him and the gang have created Bill Murry the "comic role of a lifetime". I'm guessing that means laser beam eyes that shoot seltzer water, because that would be crazy funny.

As if you needed another reason to visit Spanish Fort Alabama! "Halloween" will be showing in all its big screen glory for one night only along with a special Q&A session with Tony Moran (Michael Myers) and Brian Andrews (Tommy Doyle). So that's great news... for everyone in Spanish fort... Alabama.

William Peter Blatty and William Friedkin, the team behind "The Exorcist" are currently working on a new flick titled "Dimiter". The plot is full of large words that confused the hell out of me but you should know it's a supernatural thrill set in Jerusalem. I think there might be some split pea soup too.

Noomi Rapace of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" fame is apparently in talks to play a role in the upcoming "Alien" prequel. There's also about 70 other actresses in talks for the same role so I'm not sure if this is news or not. Let's go with yes because you're reading it. Sucka!

In Real People News: 

A group of German Catholics in Berlin are on the warpath to do away with Santa because they think he takes away from the true meaning of Christmas. There's nothing I can really say here that isn't going to be extremely offensive so I'm just going to let you put your own jokes together.

On this day in history: 

1974 – Franklin National Bank collapses due to fraud and mismanagement; at the time it is the largest bank failure in the history of the United States.
