James Merendino

Horror Headlines: Thursday, January 5th, 2012

James Merendino directed "SLC Punk" and all the kids love that movie but he also directed some really crappy low budget horror flicks so don't get too excited when I tell you he's been tapped to direct a new horror comedy titled "The Bitch". The film is about a woman who finds herself trapped in a mansion that is haunted by an evil spirit called.... wait for it... "The Bitch". Ya know, cause the ghost is a big jerk and she won't let you watch the game and she hates all your friends and she complains anytime you want to go out for drinks with your buddies. Man I hate her. Breaking up with that ghost was the best thing I've ever done.

Word around campus is that "The Evil Dead" reboot may have found its new leading lady in the form of Lily Collins, who you might remember from last year's flick "Priest". Apparently she'll be playing the new "Ash", which will be a woman in the retelling, because girls have different parts than boys and therefore the film is completely different now. I love girl parts.

This shouldn't be any sort of surprise but it looks like a release date for "Paranormal Activity 4" has been set for October 19th of this year. No director or story have been assigned to the project but seeing how these things probably take a week or two to make I wouldn't expect to hear anything till around August.

If you've never seen the original "The House on Sorority Row" but loved the remake then you might want to get your fat ass out to the DVD store on January 24th when the original comes out on a a 2 disc special edition DVD. It'll be packed with all kinds of behind the scenes videos, audio commentary, storyboards and god knows what else. Well alright I know what else too, I just don't feel like typing out every freakin detail of the thing. Sometimes you have to do a little work for yourself. I'm not going to be around forever.

In Real People News: 

If there's one sure fire way (it's a pun, you'll get it in a second) to win an argument with someone it's by setting yourself on fire (see, there it is). Of course this Michigan man did that after a dispute with his sister over cereal but who am I to judge what is and isn't important. he also died, which is the best way to make sure your opponent has no chance at a rebuttal to your argument.

And here's a Chicago man who went in a completely different direction to win an argument with his uncle over the remote control. He gouged his uncle's eyes out. Again who am I to judge...

I'm going to go ahead and thank the cast of "Glee" for this one. James Merendino, the guy who brought us "SLC Punk!" is set to takes the horns of a new vampire comedy flick called "Vampire Summer Camp". The movie will be about two rival musical summer camps, one of which is for young vampires. See you in hell FOX.

For all your Hammer fans out there, the horror movies not the kick-ass baggy pants guy, TCM will be showing 4 different Hammer Classics every Friday night during the Month of October. Can't touch this!

Here's a new NSFW clip from "I Spit on Your Grave". To be honest I haven't watched it because if it's not safe for work I'm 99% sure it's also not safe for my tender little peepers to see. That's just logic folks.

Michael J.Fox is apparently being pursued to have a recurring role in the upcoming MTV series "Teen Wolf". For you kids out there Mr. Fox played the lead in the original film all the way back in 1985. Turn your iPods off for 2 damn seconds and learn some history, you ungrateful bastards.
