Horror Headlines: Monday January 11th, 2009

Diablo Cody has decided she likes the horror genre. In a recent press junket, she talked about her plans to produce an upcoming TV series, "Breathers: A Zombies Lament".

Uwe Boll fans can rest easy. The director has announced his return to horror with the announcement for "Bloodyrayne 3: Warhammer". This news leads many horror fans to exclaim, 'There was a second "Bloodrayne"'?

Late last year it was reported that the next "Resident Evil" film would be pushed until 2011. News this weekend reports that whatever issues the film had have been resolved and it's now back on track for a 2010 release.

There's a French zombie flick in the works known as "The Horde". Judging from their new one sheet, the movie will feature both people with guns, and zombies.

In Real People News: 

Hong Kong police have arrested a man for dropping jars full of acid into night club crowds.

Lake Tahoe residents are being terrorized by a gigantic bullet scarred black bear. The bear has broken into over 40 homes on the Lake Tahoe shore, eats whatever food he can find then takes a large smelly dump which has come to be known as his calling card. Too bad John Candy isn't around to take care of the beast.

On this day in history: 

1960 - Serial killer Henry Lee Lucas kills his 74 year old mother. He tells Toledo police that he raped her corpse, but later recants.

EW interviews Megan Fox & More

EW interviewed the main "Jennifer's Body" folks at
SDCC 09 in this video, including director Karyn Kusama, writer Diablo Cody, producer Jason Reitman, and star Megan Fox. A warning: Megan Fox dishes out the movie's plot (up until people start dying), so if you want to go into the movie cold, turn off the sound until 1:10 of course be warned that if you do that you'll miss the dirty talk!

"Jennifer's Body" Red Band Trailer

Much buzz and speculation has been floating around the Megan Fox starring horror thriller "Jennifer's Body". Written by hipster allstar and "Juno" scribe Diablo Cody, no one has been sure what to make of her penning an original horror flick.

Today, the official red band trailer has hit the internet and here it is for you're enjoyment!

Diablo Cody interviews Tom Holland?

Diablo Cody, writer of the upcoming "Jennifer's Body", spoke to genre vet Tom Holland at her Mondo Diablo film festival last year after a screening of his first film "Fright Night". I'm a big fan of Holland's work (thanks, free HBO and ill-spent youth) and the insights here are interesting. He talks about the inspirations behind the film, the advantage of getting an effects crew that had just come off of Ghostbusters, and how the film is a love letter to the classic horror he watched as a kid. Plus he answers some sexy questions from the audience!

Let's hope some Tom Holland horror magic rubbed off on Cody.

Horror Headlines: Monday June 22nd, 2009

Until Rob Zombie changes his mind, this is the official one-sheet for "Halloween 2". I actually like it, although they clearly haven't fired the lettering guy from the last poster that ended up being a disaster. Could that text at the top possibly be real?

Tons of pictures from a recent "Night of the Creeps" reunion, being filmed for the upcoming DVD. Check the Flickr set at the link.

Wes Craven says he's not quite finished shooting "25/8" yet, as they may go back for some reshoots in July. Then he's hoping to have everything finished for a possible late '09/early 2010 release.

Megan Fox talks about "Jennifer's Body", including the fact that she was not able to deviate from Diablo Cody's script one single word, because Diablo Cody fancies herself the greatest screenwriter in the world.

Paul Schrader pens remake to "Tomie", the Japanese horror series with 7 sequels. I've heard of these films but have never seen any, can one of our readers fill us in in the comments?

In Real People News: 

Cop pulls gun on Mcdonald's employees because he was convinced they were moving slowly on purpose to piss him off. Sure thing sir, one spit-burger coming right up.

Iraq is being overrun by a plague of snakes. Yikes. There's some nightmare fuel for you on this Monday morning.

On this day in history: 

1633: The Holy Office in Rome forces Galileo Galilei to recant his scientific view that the Sun, not the Earth, is the center of the Universe: "I abjure with a sincere heart and unfeigned faith these errors and heresies, and I curse and detest them as well as any other error, heresy or sect contrary to the Holy Catholic Church."
