Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 3rd, 2013

Hideo Nakata, the guy who made "Ringu", has signed on to direct the remake of the Korean film "Haunters". The film is about a man who can control people with his mind and the one guy who seems to be immune to him. It's also about me thinking the titled was "Hunters" at first. That really doesn't make any difference here though. Just a fun fact.

Tomorrow is the 4th of July. Pretty much everyone has checked out at this point. News is slow. "ThanksKilling 3" is coming to DVD in October, just in time for Halloween. By the team you read this I'll probably be drunk.

"Fear Clinic" is a new movie that will star Robert Englund and Danielle Harris if you help fund it. The film will focus on a group of patients undergoing a special treatment that shows them their greatest fears in order to cure them. Funny enough, my greatest fear is a love scene between England and Harris. How much do I have to donate for that not to happen?

Do you want to see fan art for the movie "Carrie"? No me either but Screen Gems has launched a tumblr site where fans can upload and view each others art. Look I said it's a slow day alright.

In Real People News: 

Sorry Huntsville Stars fans, that's in Alabama for you folks playing at home, but the team has decided to cancel their gun raffle which was supposed to take place during an upcoming game. I assume the pocket knife giveaway night is still on though.

If you see on the news that your dentist was found in a McDonald's parking lot high out of her mind with a child in the car you might want to think about postponing that cleaning. Then again, this is Tennessee so the chances of you actually having teeth are pretty slim.

This morning on the way to work I saw a pile of old VHS tapes and a used rubber on the sidewalk. Not in the same pile, that would just be weird. Not that the two things being in separate piles isn't weird. Last week I saw two Sega Genesis' on the street. The point of this story is that someone who lives near me is having a crap load more fun then I am.

Eric Powell, creator of "The Goon" comic recently took to his blog to set the record straight on the current status of the big screen adaptation of the book. Despite rumblings around the net the movie is still very much going to happen and the production company behind it is currently looking for funding. I don't know if that means they're having bake sales or something but honestly that doesn't sound too good.

If you're as excited about ABC's "The River" as I am then you're honestly not that excited. It's on Tuesdays. I already have shows on Tuesdays. I'm not even sure I can work it into my schedule. The new website that just launched for it isn't really helping either. Sure it's all animated and crap and sure it's like a fun game but seriously, there's going to be DVR conflicts out the ying yang for this thing.

I love me some Linnea Quigley, I don't care what age. Alright that sounds kind of creepy but the news here is that the lipstick queen will be showing up in "1313: Cougar Cult". The film is set to go direct to DVD (shocker) on February 7th and revolves around a group of college guys who get a summer job working for three older women who actually turn into cougars. I think that's a pun, or a play on words, or a haiku.

I have no idea what these ramblings mean but Nicolas Cage wants to remake "The Wicker Man"... in Japan... and have "Ringu" director Hideo Nakata direct it... and have the main character be a ghost this time. No sarcastic comments here, folks. Someone needs to help this guy.

In Real People News: 

Ever wonder what happens when you're unconscious in a hospital? Well apparently in one Utah hospital what happens is you get some free oral sex. Weather you want it or not. But you know you wanted it. Sinner.

A homeless man has been rescued after he was stuck in mud for over three days near the Rio Grande. He then went to jail because he had a number of outstanding warrants. It's a happy ending.

Trailer: Hideo Nakata's "The Incite Mill"

Although most people abandoned ship after the J-horror bubble burst a few years ago, I'm still on-board this dodgy vessel, ready and willing to stuff long-haired ghosts and spooky spectral children into my supernaturally-starved psyche. Hideo Nakata, a man whose name is almost synonymous with Asian genre fare, is set to unleash his latest creation, the 2010 slasher "The Incite Mill", on the unsuspecting Japanese masses this October.

"Don't Look Up" Trailer

Anyone who has bore witness to the unsettling Asian horror anthology "Three...Extremes" should be well versed in the work of Fruit Chan. In case you've already forgotten the specifics or have yet to discover this cinematic treasure for yourself, Chan is the mastermind behind the film's most disturbing entry, namely "Dumplings." Without giving too much away, let's just say you'll always think twice about the crunchy bits buried within your order of steamed dumplings. Make of that what you will.
