Horror Headlines: Monday April 4th, 2011

Details on the plot of Rob Zombie's upcoming "The Lords of Salem" have finally been revealed and much to my surprise they have nothing to do with Salem Massachusetts. I kid! The plot revolves around a local DJ who unleashes an unholy curse on the town of Salem that a group of witches cast over 300 years ago. I bet this ruins their tourism also.

Stephen King and John Mellencamp have apparently had a musical in the works since 2006 titled "Ghost Brothers of Darkland County" and good news kids, it'll hit Atlanta in just under a year. The play focuses on the rumors around the murder of 3 people in a small town in Mississippi and I know I said it before but I'm not sure you understand, Stephen King and John Mellencamp created this. Let that sink in.

According to a recent post on the official facebook page for "Trick 'r Treat", "Sam will return" which would lead the world to believe that the anthology series will see a sequel in the near future. Either that or they know something about a "Cheers" reunion. Either way I'm excited.

A new TV spot for JJ Abrams' "Super 8" has found it's way online and honestly I still have no idea what the movie is about but I think it's somewhere in between "Maximum Overdrive" and "E.T.". Of course I watched the video with the volume down and really only paid attention for a few seconds. "Bert the Conqueror" was on last night! If you want to know how that was I could give you a detailed run down.

In Real People News: 

A Wisconsin man called 911 after a couple strippers that promised to come to his hotel room and give him lap dances never showed. Apparently he dropped about $1000 bucks so honestly I think it's BS that the cops didn't do anything.

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe has signed a bill that bans High School students from wearing clothing that exposes "underwear, buttocks or the breast of a female." Meaning no more droopy pants kids! And get off my damn lawn!

Prepare yourself; Sigourney Weaver is going to bite you. The veteran actress has signed on to play a Queen Vampire in Amy Heckerling's horror comedy, "Vamps"! Weaver will be starring alongside Alicia Silverstone and Kristen Ritter.

Craig Gillespie, director of "Lars and the Real Girl", has been tapped to direct the upcoming "Fright Night" remake proving that there actually is one person out there that still cares about this project!

Liv Ullman will be in "The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County", a musical collaboration between John Mellencamp and Stephen King. Read that again; 'a musical collaboration between John Mellencamp and Stephen King'!

In Real People News: 

Most men have at least thought about using their junk as a weapon at one point in their lives, but not that many can say they've attacked a female police officer with their testicles. Lithuanian "Cops" must be the greatest show ever.

Are you dying to get your hands on a piece of pop culture history? Prepare yourself, because the syringe that delivered the fatal dose to Michael Jackson is about to go up for auction! The bidding is expected to start at $5 Million dollars, plus 1 soul.

On this day in history: 

965 - Pope Leo VIII dies of a stroke during sexual intercourse. Perhaps the best way for a man to die, but not a very appropriate choice for the Bishop of Rome.
