In yesterday's news we reported on a story regarding a new film called "Eve", and how its plot bore a striking resemblance to another film in production right now called "Hack & Slash". Both stories involve a sexy female with a dead parent who has made it her life mission to track down "slasher killers".
Just a warning... being April Fool's day today, you may see some erroneous horror news floating around the web. We'll do our best not to participate in the douchery, but as you probably know sometimes it's hard to discern the real from the fake. Ironically, this is the one day a year when you actually CAN believe something Robert Englund says in an interview, so keep your ears open for "Freddy Vs Jason Vs Chucky" news.
There's a new poster for this movie "Eve" that came out yesterday, but that's not the interesting news. People are (rightfully) remarking on the similarities between this and the comic book adaptation "Hack & Slash"... and by "similarities" I mean, it's the same exact plot. There's enough room in my heart for two sexy slasher hunters, but I'm not sure the rights holders to "Hack & Slash" are going to agree. We'll keep you updated on any legal shenanigans that may arise from this.
1996: Wilson Pickett arrested for possession of cocaine, after a screaming, bloodied woman is seen running from his house. Not sure what you'd say to your neighbors after that to stop them from calling the cops, but I think I'd go with the old gem, "Move along folks, nothing to see here."
