Horror Headlines: Friday July 19th, 2013

"Nothing Left to Fear" is a new horror film being produced by Slash that follows a family who move into a small town and find they're living near one of the gates to hell. It's just been slapped with an October 5th limited theater run before coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on October 8th. Little known fact, Slash has a belly button ring. That top hat isn't so cool anymore is it?

Sony Pictures has picked up the rights to "Grace", a new horror flick that is shown entirely through the eyes of an 18 year old girl being terrorized by evil forces. Alexia Fast will play the lead role and Alan Dale, Lin Shaye and Joel David Moore will co-star. I'm just going to come out and say what we're all thinking. People with three names are unnatural.

A couple days ago I mentioned how it looked like "Paranormal Activity 5" was going to be pushed to a 2014 release date rather than its planned October 25th, 2013 launch. Well now it looks like the film actually won't see the light of day until October 2014 and instead we'll see the Spanish spin off film in January. Well you'll see it. I won't. I don't speak Spanish and I have no desire to see it. Unless those strippers from the Telemundo evening news are in it. Then I'm onboard.

Of course there's a "Sharknado" sequel coming. You ironic pricks on twitter made this happen. God have mercy on your soul.

In Real People News: 

It's only July but I believe we have found our mother of the year in the form of this 25 year old Florida woman who left her 3 and 4 year old children in the car while she went to a Lil Wayne concert. Bravo!

Of course I might have spoken too soon. Here's a Texas woman who burnt her son's mouth with a spoon and hit him with a screwdriver as punishment for... well being her son I guess. It's a toss up who wins this really.

Horror BY the Sub-Genres: Pregnancy Horror

Giving birth is the weapon humanity has against the constant attempt of nature to destroy it, the yin to death’s yang. It is the way that people gain a measure of immortality in the physical world, a way to make sure that half of the genetic information that makes up who you are continues on after you’re long gone. It’s also an amazing way to bring together humanity, literally combining two separate human beings at a genetic level, knitting them together more closely than any relationship ever could.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 15th, 2009

So the story is floating around today that "Harper's Island" on CBS is officially canceled. Of course, since it was basically a summer filler miniseries, I'm not sure how people thought it had a chance of being "picked up" anyway. Besides, wasn't everyone dead at the end? Oooops... spoiler!

"Anchor Bay" has picked up "Grace" for a DVD release and limited theatrical run. The indie has been blazing up the festival circuit lately, and Anchor Bay seems like a logical place for it to find a home. It's an extremely limited release, only hitting a few theaters in NY and LA, but if you live in those areas you just might have the chance to see it on the big screen. The film is about "a mother who brings her dead fetus to term, and gives birth to a child with an appetite for blood".

After numerous stumbles along the way, the comic adaptation "HACK/SLASH" has a new director. Frederik Bond will be replacing Todd Lincoln as the helmer. The film will supposedly begin shooting by the year's end. "HACK/SLASH" deals with a sexy young woman who travels the country, taking on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.

"Zombieland" has a poster, and it's pretty sweet.

In Real People News: 

I've got a foolproof get-rich-quick scheme for you... all you have to do is have a cellphone and be able to act like a genie. I have no idea how to do that either, but I can't figure out everything for you. Take some initiative!

It seems like I shouldn't have to say this, but just to be safe... falling asleep in a recycling bin after a night of drinking is not a good idea. It will probably end up with you being dead.

I don't care if you are a "molecular gastronomist" - probably the most pretentious phrase I've ever had to type - you shouldn't be cooking with liquid nitrogen. It's a good way to lose both of your hands, like this dumbass.

On this day in history: 

1974: During a live broadcast of the Sarasota, Florida morning news program Suncoast Digest, newscaster Chris Chubbuck tells the audience: "In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first: an attempted suicide." Then she blows her brains out with a .38 revolver.

Grace (REVIEW)

With rumors spreading of two men fainting at Sundance and women dressed as nurses walking around horror conventions cradling creepy baby dolls, "Grace", Paul Solet's first full-length feature as a writer and director, has been getting excellent word of mouth. Even Grace's rating on imdb is unusually high for an independent horror film, coming in currently at an 8.5.
