AICN has the first look at "Goon", the CGI adaptation of Eric Powell's comic book of the same name, being produced by David Fincher. I've never heard of the property but it looks pretty sweet to me.
I'm sure this movie "And Soon the Darkness" is about something. Personally, I stopped reading after "starring Amber Heard and Odette Youstman". What are they trying to start the apocalypse? Do they sincerely thing our pea-brains can handle all that hotness on one movie screen?
1942: John Wayne Gacy, part time clown, serial killer, and sodomizer of dozens of boys, is born in Chicago. His father was convinced Gacy was a "sissy", but friends and family didn't really suspect anything untoward was afoot until his 1968 arrest for coercing a teenage boy employee into committing multiple homosexual acts.
Over the years, "Above the Influence," the propaganda wing of the Office of National Drug Control Policy has taught me a lot. For example, I learned that if I smoke pot at a fast food drive through, I will run over a little girl on a pink tricycle. I've also learned that it's best not to sit on the couch while smoking, because I'm bound to melt into the cushions, literally.
Although not a horror film, "Watchmen" gets released wide in the US today, and I'm sure a lot of our fans will be interested in seeing it. Here's hoping it turns out half as good as it looks.
April 16th, 2010. That's the date that Platinum Dunes plans to release its "Nightmare on Elm St." remake. So, now you know.
Here's the trailer for Jake West's Indie film "Dog House. West's last film was "Punpkinhead 3" for the Scifi, and before that he directed "Evil Aliens". The story of "Doghouse" concerns a group of friends who take a vacation to a small town in the UK, only to find out that all the town's females have been infected with a virus, which based on what I saw in the trailer turns them into zombies.
I think I could get into an adaptation of this "Ghosts/Aliens" book. It's literally about "two pothead friends who set out on a question to discover both ghosts and aliens". It just got picked up by Paramount Vantage, and along with a feature film version, Comedy Central will be prepping a television show based on the property.
Wes Craven describes the villain in his film "25/8". He says he's: "a figure who lives under the river, sleeps under the bridges... eats bark". And there we have it, the secret of his anger. You'd be killing people too if you had to eat bark. That's just nasty.
In Real People News:
What we have here is a classic story of man meets woman through personal ads, they make a connection, and she bites his tongue clear off. She was at least nice enough to put it in a plastic bag and hand it to police officers when they arrived. Ain't love grand?
