dark shadows

Horror Headlines: Wednesdady June 24th, 2009

Depp says Burton will be tackling his adaptation of "Dark Shadows" immediately after they finish up "Alice". No one seems to be asking if there's even potential in a remake of the cheesy TV vampire soap. Right now I'm more interested to see how his "Alice in Wonderland" adaptation goes.

I get it, poster for the festival hit "Dead Girl", lips look like vaginas. Actually, ya, that's a pretty sweet poster.

M. Night Shyamalan now has his very own official site. It stars M. Night Shyamalan in an M. Night Shyamalan produced project, where M. Night Shyamalan plays the most important person in the world who is meant to save us all by saying profound things in really childish and oversimplified ways. Sounds awesome, no?

In Real People News: 

Naked thief snatches food from drive-thru window and runs away with his prize. If you're having a tough day, that mental image is guaranteed to make you laugh.

This is the look of a man who just stabbed someone, and is awfully happy with himself. It's also the satisfied look of a Floridian. Coincidentally, pretty similar.

Poland's UFO files have been stolen. At the link, an interview with the guy who probably should have done something about it. (Good read though for conspiracy theorists like myself)

On this day in history: 

1374: In a sudden outbreak of Dancing Mania (aka "St. John's Dance"), people in the streets of Aix-la-Chapelle experience terrible hallucinations and begin to jump and twitch uncontrollably until they collapse from exhaustion. Many of the sufferers are afflicted with frothing at the mouth, diabolical screaming, and sexual frenzy. The phenomenon lasts well into the month of July. Nowadays, ergot madness is suspected as being the ultimate cause of the disorder.

Horror Headlines: Friday March 20th, 2009

For a while last year I was reporting on this film called "Cleavagefield", which appears to be some kind of softcore spoof on "Cloverfield" only with you know, more boobs. Then I realized that the joke was kind of over and my coverage was a little embarrassing, so I stopped. Today there's a story that was too funny to pass up though, with news of the "Cleavage" field monster revealed! Hmmm... sort of looks like a cross between Dino from The Flinstones and one of those blowup things you see in front of car dealerships when they're having a big sale. In other words, classy.

IGN has a new "Terminator" salvation poster. Every morning when I wake up I punch myself in the face for letting McG get me this excited about one of this films. One things for sure, the man knows how to work a fanboy.

It turns out that Johnny Depp's production company is actually PRODUCING the "Dark Shadows" update that's been in the works for a while. They hope to shoot in the Fall, and although nothing's official yet, it's reported that Tim Burton is Depp's "first and only choice" for director. Stay tuned for more.

"Martyrs" hits DVD in the states on April 28th, 2009. Here's your long awaited chance to check out the hottest foreign horror property out there right now. That date is now just a little more than a month away.

In Real People News: 

I'm not saying I would want to go to this Texas school where teachers disciplined students by throwing them in a metal cage to fight it out "Fight Club" style, I'm just saying that after reading that story I kind of wish I could have watched. Does that make me a bad person?

Charles Manson's next parole hearing is scheduled for 2012, and he's looking increasingly old and frail. I'll let you make your own Mayan doomsday/Manson released in 2012 connections from this story.
