Edward Furlong and Christian Slater finally in a movie together? Sign me up! Alright this may have happened before, I just can't remember. But this time it's called "The Awakened" and is about a young woman who returns to her home town to find her mother's killer. Apparently there's some sort of Jekyll & Hyde tie in also. Who cares though. Furter! Or Slatlong. I don't know, we'll work on it.

If there's one complaint I get about my news it's that there's not enough coverage of what's going on over at the Lifetime network. Well today is your lucky day bed burners because the good lady folk over there have decided to move forward with a new series based on Melissa de la Cruz's novel "The Witches of East End". For those of you who have never had your monthly visitor the story focuses on a mother and her two daughters who just so happen to be next in the long line of witches. Queue Sarah McLachlan.

Looks like Jackie Earle Haley is the latest name to be added to the cast of the upcoming "Robocop" remake. Rumor has it that Haley will be playing the role of Maddox, the main man who trains Robocop with his new skills. I can't even think of something stupid to say here. This seems like a perfectly reasonable casting selection. Well done, Hollywood people.

There's more horror themed shows coming to the little screen in the near future then you can shake a stick at and today we've got word there's one more. "Sleepy Hollow", based on the classic headless horseman tale, is being put together by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the same cats that brought you "Fringe". The project is still being pitched to the big wigs so it's not 100% locked in but if no one wants it I'm willing to toss a ten spot in and they can act it out in my living room.

In Real People News: 

A New Hampshire lab tech is in hot water after it was discovered he had been stealing a powerful anesthetic from his job and replacing it with saline. The kicker here? Apparently he had been using the needles and has given more than 30 people Hep C.

Here's a heartwarming story about a California man who is under arrest after he shot his own son. Why did he shoot his son you might ask? Well because he chose a Kenny Chesney song at karaoke. Seams reasonable enough.

If you haven't seen "A Serbian Film" well then consider yourself lucky. I'm not going to say why, but there are some things that no amount of soup in the eyes will wash away. I still wake up crying in the middle of the night sometimes. But good news for deviants and future sex offenders out there, it's getting a US release in selected theaters on May 17th in both it's R and NC-17 forms. In honor of this event a new red-band trailer and website have lunched for the movie. Both of which I refuse to view. You've been warned.

Chloe Moretz, who I've dubbed this generation's Macaulay Culkin, minus the coke habit and schizophrenia, has officially been added to the cast of the upcoming Tim Burton big screen adaptation of the vampire soap opera "Dark Shadows". The cast already includes the likes of Johnny Depp, Jackie Earle Haley, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter. Just to be clear I have no idea if Culkin is a coke head or a schizophrenic but it would be awesome if he was.

I'm going to make a prediction here folks and if I'm wrong I will personally come to each and every one of your houses and open mouth kiss you as an apology. Here it is. "Shark Night 3D" will be the single greatest movie to ever appear on the silver screen. Put it in the books! If you doubt me then just take a gander at the new photo that's hit the tubes of the film. It's got a shark! What more do you need?! I think I've made my point.

Would you like to know what the second greatest movie of all time will be? So would I! But while we try to figure that out here's the trailer for "The Toolbox Murders 2" which I honestly think in no way ties to the first one. Of course I didn't see it. I saw the original one from 1978 though and there was a women in a bathtub getting dirty while listening to weird country music. So... that's something, right?

In Real People News: 

I always wondered what happens when a mailman has to make a number two while he's out walking the route. Well it looks like I have my answer, they take a boom boom in your bushes. Or at least one mailman in Portland did and then got suspended. But still I assume this is what they all do, they just don't get caught.

A woman in Kansas faces charges of keeping a vicious animal after police found her 8 foot long albino python. How did they find it? Well when it freaked out and latched onto her neck she had to call the police for help. I wonder if they got the snake off before they cuffed her. I like to think they didn't.

Nightmare trailer coming soon

I unfortunately do not have the trailer for "A Nightmare on Elm St." just yet, but there are whispers that a teaser trailer will front "Zombieland" on October 2nd, a movie that most genre fans won't have to go out of their way to see. I'm just glad it's not attached to a "Saw" film.

The Elm Street trailer will debut online around the same time. Producer Brad Fuller tweeted yesterday that:

Sometimes teasers/trailers can be found on the internet before they end up in theaters.

First Look at Freddy Krueger From the NOES Remake

Well here it is, our first *sort of* look at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger. It's hard to see much but I can tell you that his tiny pea-head creeps me out by itself. Rumor has it we'll see a better shot later in the day as the first official day of comic-con swings into full gear. Stay tuned...

Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 1st, 2009

WOW, I'm excited that Amazon is allowing us to vote on potential covers for the "Night of the Creeps" DVD, but these are three of the worst covers ever made... for ANYTHING. Seriously, with all the amazing original cover art, how the hell did this happen?

New film called "Dances With Werewolves"... I see what they did there.

Jackie Earle Haley signed on for three "Nightmare on Elm St." films. This could either be really great or really terrible... depending on how things turn out.

In Real People News: 

This is what happens when you think you're breaking into a frail old man's house, and instead you discover that he's a former boxer. Ouch.

I can barely read the headline "Man uses nail clippers in DIY circumcision" without wanting to scream out loud in agony.

On this day in history: 

1946: Atomic Bomb testing begins, using the Nagasaki-type implosion bomb, at Bikini Atoll.
