I've never hidden that fact that I want to make a sweet sweet baby with the original "The Amityville Horror" and now I'm giddy with delight over the green lighting of "The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes". The movie, which is set for a 2012 release, will focus on a journalist trying to uncover the true story behind the house after the events of the first film. Will it be awful? Mostly likely but F you, I want to see some bleeding walls!

Universal has decided to push the start date of Ron Howard's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" after rumors were flying around that they might pass on the 3 movie series all together. Why would they do this? I don't know, I'm not allowed in these meetings. Have you seen my wardrobe? They're not going to let a jackass in dirty jeans and a "Don't Mess With Texas" t-shirt into a big fancy executive meeting.

I'm a cynical asshole, by nature, and because of that it pains me more than anything else in the world to admit the trailer for the "Fright Night" remake actually looks really really good. And I'm not even saying that because Colin Farrell is a dreamy SOB. On a side note. When the hell did we find out this movie was going to be in 3D? I could have sworn two weeks ago we found out the cast. Now it's releasing in August? Where the hell have I been?!

Danielle Harris has become the go to gal for horror movies that aren't going to be released in theaters so here's the trailer for "Shiver", a horror movie she stars in that I'm 99% sure is only going to play in 17 theaters across the country. What the hell do I know though, it's got the guy from "Starship Troopers". Anyway the film focuses on a secretary who fights back after being assaulted by a serial killer. Rae Dawn Chong is in it too... take that however you want.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes there's a news story that's so awful it just makes you smile. Then it makes you try to figure out what the hell is wrong with you for smiling. Here's a story about an Illinois man who had a house guest who wouldn't leave. So he tossed gasoline on him and lit him on fire. Are you smiling? Yeah you are you sick prick.

And because I get a kick out of making you feel like you need another shower, here's a story about a guy who is being forced to undergo evaluation after he slapped and rubbed the genitals of his pet Chihuahua in the common area of his apartment complex. Are you still smiling? You belong in hell... sicko.

The first trailer for Lars Von Trier's new end of the world flick "Melancholia" has hit the tubes and much to my surprise it looks fairly un-hammer-to-the-penis-like. Yes that women who took a hammer to William Defeo's penis in "Antrichrist" is in this movie, so you keep thinking about it, but there's nothing to lead me to believe that's going to happen again. God I hope that doesn't happen again.

Speaking of Willem Dafoe and his lumbering manbits, they'll both be in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Dean Kootz's "Odd Thomas". The story focuses on a cook who's able to speak to the dead. Defoe plays a police chief who knows the young lad's secret. I have no clue if Defoe's member will be playing a different role.

It looks as if Rob Hall's "Fear Clinic" mini-series will be making it's way to the big screen, and Danielle Harris and Robert Englund are both on board for the magic. For those of you who aren't familiar with the series or Rob Hall's spiky hair, it follows a group of patients who come to a clinic in order to cure the phobias that run their lives. Much like the god awful fear I have of Willem Dafoe's privates. Let's keep this going!

Jessica Biel his apparently been offered a role in the upcoming "Total Recall" remake. No confirmation on which role she's been offered but chances are it's one of the two leads. She doesn't seem like the kind of girl who would be into playing that big women who has an exploding head or the three boobed hooker. Then again what do I know, I'm still focused on Willem Dafoe's flim flam. Happy Monday folks!

In Real People News: 

I have no idea if there's a bestiality handbook out there, but I don't think you need one to know you don't do it in your backyard. But it looks like this 17 year old in New Zealander doesn't know that because he's been convicted of the animal nasty after his neighbor saw him making love to his cat. Yeah I said it, making love.

After 64 years on this planet you've got to be struggling for ideas on how to celebrate your birthday. But this Florida man came up with something new, he flashed a school bus full of kids! I would of gone with a trip to Denny's, I'm pretty sure you eat for free. But flashing a bunch of kids would be a close second.

Snapshot: "The Victim" (2011)

Michael Biehn writes, directs and stars in the upcoming psychological thriller "The Victim" as Kyle, a recluse who finds comfort living in the middle of the woods. But his quiet life is turned upside down when Annie knocks on his door, trying to flee from the attackers who raped and murdered her best friend. Jennifer Blanc, Ryan Honey and Danielle Harris also star. "The Victim" is scheduled for release in 2011.

If you plan on giving up watching Syfy movies for the New Year you might want to check out the new clips from "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" first. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is going to be the greatest movie they've ever made. That's a tall order I know but it does have Debbie Gibson and Tiffany.

Danielle Harris is back my friends with "Shiver" and I am just tickled pink. The movie is about a secretary who's being stalked by a serial killer who has to fight for her life. I hope it has singing, that Harris has got a heart of gold that I know it's just waiting to get out. I don't even think I'm being sarcastic.

It's what the kids call a "slow day" around here at the BGH newsroom so here's a trailer for "Devil in Baby Joan" which is pretty much a "The Last Exorcism" knock off but it doesn't look awful. At the very least it's got some really nice looking title animations. So that's something, huh?

And because one of you did something very very wrong this year and we all need to be punished here's the On Demand trailer for "Hatchet 2". It's a trailer for the movie to let us all know that it's going to be On Demand. I probably didn't need to explain that though.

In Real People News: 

If you're going to try to rob a place with an iPhone maybe think about someplace other than a restaurant. Or really any place where people might have knives or any other sort of weapon which could be used in defense of an iPhone. Just a thought.

This is kind of heartwarming isn't it. A man in Massachusetts who ordered 178 pizzas as a prank eventually changed his mind and paid in full for the little stunt. I have no idea what he did with all of them but I sure do like pizza, even if it's a few days old. Hint hint.

The Black Waters of Echo's Pond (REVIEW)

This review is based on a screener viewing at Horror Hound Weekend Cincinnati in November 2009

Horror Headlines: Monday October 5th, 2009

"Zombieland" takes in a whopping $25 Million this weekend, placing the film firmly in the #1 spot for the box office! If Woody Harrelson isn't enough to draw you in, be sure to check out Mark's review if you've yet to see the film for yourself!

"Paranormal Activity" continues to make money and draw in fans. If the midnight releases are too late for you, the studio plans a full limited release this Friday October 9th! It will be playing in the same theaters as before, but now the film will be showing at all hours! "Paranormal Activity" took in roughly $525,000 this weekend on limited screens.

MTV announces that "My Super Psycho Sweet 16" will premiere this month on MTV. Sure, it's not music videos, but at least we get to see some annoying teens get muderlated as opposed to watching them try to date in awkward situations for a change! Watch for it October 23rd at 10pm Eastern.

Casting news continues to trickle out for the new 'American Anime' NOTLD remake, "Night of the Living Dead: Origins". Joining Danielle Harris in the titular role of Barbara will be Mos Def as Ben.

Rumors are starting to circulate that the next outing for Jason Vorhees in remake land will be shot in 3-D. However, Platinum Dunes Brad Fuller says the film has yet to be greenlit since there is no script as of now. One can only hope that a 3-D Friday the 13th might be less mediocre than the remake.

In Real People News: 

Maintaining his plea of innocence the entire time, a Florida man shoots a 22 gram bag of cocaine out of his ass while being searched. And to think, Eric left all this behind! (Thank you, I'm here all week! Remember to tip your waitresses.)

In an effort to promote healthy eating, The New York City Board of Education has banned all bake sales. Experts believe this may actually benefit schools as a bag of cookies now fetches a kingly $75 a bag on the black market.

Website Oddee.com releases a list of Top 10 Manliest Names. Among the list are Rad Heroman, Flex Plexico, and Casey Criswell.

Danielle Harris in "Stake land"

If you follow Danielle Harris (@Halloweengal) on Twitter, then you already know that she will be starring in the new Jim Mickle film "Stake Land," a post apocalyptic vampire Western road movie. Let's just hope that all of those elements make a badass movie. I think this one looks okay. It has some alluring images anyway and is rumored to be a bit political, but I guess that comes with the cross burning territory.

Five Minute Trailer For "Cyrus" Hits The Web

You’ve got to have a pair on you to throw out a 5 minute trailer for your independent film. But with all the sick crap going on in “Cyrus” I don’t think anyone is going to complain. With the cast alone you’re going to need five minutes to introduce all your horror fan favorities, with the likes of Danielle Harris, Lance Henriksen, Doug Jones and Tiffany Shepis all making appearances.
