Horror Headlines: Monday, April 2nd, 2011

Welcome to April folks! I hope you're up on your shots because things are going to get super raw this month. Look, Russ! No tan lines.

Kenny Doughty has been added to the cast of Bong Joon-Ho's "Snow Piercer" and while I've never seen a movie he's been in he kind of looks like he's terminally ill so I'm going to hold back on the comments. The movie tells the tale of a group of people trapped on a train after the world has frozen over. I've talked about this a lot this morning. I still have no idea how trains work when the world is frozen.

Everything I know about Atilla the Hun I learned from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and even that I don't remember too well. I think I remember him messing up a sporting goods store or something. But Warner Bros. is going to fix that for me with a new film that will tell the full story of Mr. Hun. I wonder if they'll get to the part where he's taken to the future to help two kids get an A on their history final. I hope so.

Stick with me here, because I'm going to try to explain the new movie "Bloodloss". It's a found footage flick about a filmmaker who's investigation into his sister's disappearance leads him into the underworld culture of real life "vampires". Alright now that I write it down I guess it's not that confusing. it's also not that interesting. I'm sorry I ever brought it up.

David Slade, the guy who brought you "30 Days Of Night" has been tapped by the people behind the new "Hannibal" series to direct the show's pilot. the NBC show will follow the "Red Dragon" story line and tell the story of a budding romance between Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter. I think. I don't know, I've never read the book but I do love a good romance.

In Real People News: 

If you're going to rent the school's laptop you might want to think about getting a separate hard drive for your 350 sexual explicit pictures you're taking of yourself. The most shocking thing here is that apparently schools lend out laptops now. I hope they come with Oregon Trail installed.

Sometimes you just have to spit on an old person. But who the hell gets caught for doing it? This guy in Florida that's who. He lost his shiznit while behind the wheel and let a loogy fly on this old lady and now he's in jail. I assume there's a lot of spitting going on there too. That's an oral sex reference.

David Slade Loves "Twilight", No, Really!

I know, "Twilight" and its fans are easy targets, but sometimes there are stories too good to pass up.

We reported on the story last week about old tweets (now deleted) from David Slade (Then director of "30 Days of Night"), that commented on how he would never watch Twilight, even "on acid" or "with a gun to [his] head". Sentiments I'm sure we've all had at one point or another.

David Slade Adapts Wild Sounding "Cold Skin"

We reported on the news recently that David Slade (director, "30 Days of Night") would be taking on the third film in the Twilight franchise. That, understandably, had horror fans a little miffed, especially considering he made specific quotes while promoting "30 Days" indicating that he was not a fan of the romantic type of vampires. Presumably, a big fat check changed his mind on that one. And hey, who can blame him.

Horror Headlines: Thursday April 23rd, 2009

Brace yourself. David Slade, director of "30 Days of Night", will be directing the third film in the "Twilight" franchise, subtitled "Eclipse". Uh... what? Slade has not made a statement yet, but I'm sure someone is tracking him down right now to ask him what the hell he's thinking.

Rumors are that Rooney Mara is in final negotiations to play "Nancy" in the remake of "A Nightmare on Elm St." No confirmation yet, but the source seems reliable from what I read at the link.

The director of "S. Darko" says he's in the process of remaking the 1978 film "The Eyes of Laura Mars". That may be the most obscure sentence I've ever written.

"Chaos Experiment" is about a scientist working on a theory that humanity will devolve into violence by 2012 due to global warming, and attempting to prove that by locking a bunch of half-naked people in a sauna. Not exactly the most scientific experiment, but it is a really good way for filmmakers to force their stars to be in their underwear for 90 minutes.

A body cast of Arnold Schwarzenegger, taken at the time of the first "Terminator" film, is being used to create a fully functional CGI character of Arnie for "Terminator Salvation". THAT, should be interesting.

"Wolverine" producer looking for a writer so she can make a "Constantine" sequel. Huh, I'm one of the few that enjoyed the first "Constantine", and that sentence STILL makes my head hurt.

In Real People News: 

Police detonate a bag full of cans because they were worried there was a bomb inside, turns out it was just full of shit. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

What would you do if you found a mummified cat in the walls of your house while renovating? Apparently if you're these people, the answer is "put it back".

On this day in history: 

1951: Lenny Bruce is arrested in Miami Beach, Florida for fraudulently soliciting funds for a leper colony while dressed as a priest.
