Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: DANIEL MYRICK

Daniel Myrick never intended to be a horror film director. After graduating the University Of Central Florida School Of Film in 1994, Myrick partnered with fellow UCF graduates Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale to create the biggest horror film phenomenon in recent history until “Paranormal Activity” (the film that took its groundwork and continued on), the found footage film “The Blair Witch Project”.

Lovely Molly (REVIEW)

“Lovely Molly” is the latest movie from director Eduardo Sanchez of “The Blair Witch Project” and, like that film, relies heavily on found footage. With the fact that Sanchez co-directed "The Blair Witch Project" in mind, I felt another found-footage film was something of an odd choice. I would think having one’s name so closely associated with the movie that sparked an avalanche of found-footage horror movies, one might want to step away from that style.

Horror Headlines: Thursday November 1st, 2012

I'm going to answer the question you've been asking for years now. Yes they're making a "V/H/S 2". I know, you were getting nervous. What's more is this time around they've got a pretty kick ass list of directors to create the anthoology sequel. Gareth Evans, Eduardo Sanchez, Timo Tjahjanto and Jason Eisener are all in the mix for this one.

I think so far the reception of the "Evil Dead" remake has been warm to lukewarm, which is pretty good for horror nerds and the internet rage remakes cause. But feast your eyes on a photo of the new Necronomicon from the film. For some reason it's thrown me in a fit of rage. I want a face on it. I want a big weird angry monster face that screams and bites people. I deserve a face on a book.

"Ghostbusters 3" has been delayed again, being pushed from a summer 2013 start date to sometime in the fall of that year. The only thing surprising here to me is that this thing still has a chance of being made.

Mother of god yes. Kurt Russell will star in a new horror/western titled "Bone Tomahawk" about a sheriff and his pals who try to save a group from a band of cannibals. This will be the greatest move of all time. Yes Jennifer Carpenter is going to be in the film too but let's not let her freakish build and man jaw ruin the glory of Russell. Let's just not.

In Real People News: 

A 300 pound deer recently jumped into a home in Philadelphia and caused all kinds of damage while a frightened family looked on. It's sad because even with a 300 pound animal running around a house the worst thing about the home is that it's filled with people from Philadelphia. Am I right?!

I can't believe this doesn't happen more often but a skeleton was found under a tree that was uprooted during the hurricane in Connecticut this past Monday. I always assume most trees have dead bodies under them but that's just me.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday June 28th, 2011

Hey remember Haley Joel Osment? The little fella who could see dead people in "The Sixth Sense" and creeped his way into all of our hearts back in 1999? Well it looks like he's back in the horror genre with a starring role in the upcoming Frankenstein flick "Wake the Dead". The movie is based on a novel by Steve Niles and it appears Osment will play the mad doctor Victor Frankenstein. So I guess his character will see dead people. Get it? Cause ya know... the Frankenstein monster was dead or something... Comedic gold.

Speaking of 1999, another film called "The Blair Witch Project" came out that year also. Well Eduardo Sanchez, one half of the writing and directing team behind the Blair Witch, is heading back into the woods with his new film "Exists". The movie will follow a group of teenagers who find themselves trapped in a cabin in the middle of a forrest being attacked by a bigfoot like creature. There better be some close up shots of people's snot. You can't top the classics.

Jim Uhls, who adapted Chuck Palahniuk's book "Fight Club" for the big screen, and Trent Reznor are teaming up to create a new mini series for HBO based on the Nine Inch Nails album "Year Zero". The series will take place in the year 2022 and show a world run by a corrupt government. And needless to say I will be both bored and confused by the entire thing.

Lauren Cohan, who wasn't on "The Hills" apparently and Scott Wilson are the latest additions to the ever growing cast of the second season of "The Walking Dead". Wilson will play the owner of a farm that the traveling group ends up on and Cohen will play his daughter. I hope she doesn't end up with that jerk Brody Jenner. She can do so much better than him and he's only after one thing.

In Real People News: 

Little tip for the ladies out there. If the cops show up at your house because you've been beating the crap out of your boyfriend a sure fire way to get out of going to jail is not biting the arresting officer. Sounds obvious I know but a 30 year old woman in Ohio is under arrest for just that. And the kicker is now that she claims to be HIV positive. I bet she gets off with a warning.

And fellas this one is for you. If the cops show up because there's been complaints about loud arguments you might want to wait till after they leave before urinating on your significant other like this guy in South Carolina did. Or not doing it at all. I should say don't pee on your loved one at all, right? Yeah.. don't do it.

Eduardo Sanchez confirms rumors that he has re-teamed with Dan Myrick to begin work on "Blair Witch 3". The movie appears to be in the early planning and scripting phase, so don't go lining up at the theater just yet.

Kurt Angle and Kevin Nash face off once again, but this time on the silver screen instead of the ring. Both wrestlers star in director Bruce Koehler's "River of Darkness". Can Angle pull off a convincing small town sheriff? Better yet... can he pull off acting?

A group of Chinese Dwarfs, tired of bullying in life decide to form their own community. To add to this, they've built their own theme park, complete with small mushroom houses that they now live in to draw in tourists. Countdown to Disney buyout in 5... 4... 3...

An Edmonton inmate lures the Warden in close to his cell, then pelts him with a milk carton filled with his feces. The Warden was not injured, however he was covered in shit, which kind of sucks. The inmate then proceeded to shout "I shit bombed the warden!" to the other inmates. And I didn't make that last part up, either!

As a retaliation for 10 years of abuse from his iron worker father, a Thai teen chops off his father's hands while he sleeps. There's probably a Bobbit joke to be made here, but I'll leave that alone.

Not to be outdone, this Colorado teen shot his father in the back of the head after being raped by the man. He then dismembered his body and fed the remains to local Coyotes.
