Horror Headlines: Friday May 13th, 2011

I don't know how I missed this new movie called "Skinny Dip" that's starring Sasha Grey and Danny Trejo but a whole gang load of people have been added to the cast. Namely Pam Grier, Michael Madsen and Brigitte Nielsen. That last one being my favorite Girl Next Door. If you say Kendra you're a fool! Anyway, the movie is a throw back to the girls kicking ass movies of the 70's and 80's and based on that I think there's a solid chance we may see some hot Grey on Trejo action. I know, I just threw up too!

Low budget vampire horror comedy? How can this not be awesome!? "Vampires in Venice" is what we're talking about here and it's got a trailer up on the tubes for your viewing pleasure. Is it funny? No of course not, but that doesn't make the movie any less promising. Wait... no scratch that. I think that's exactly what it means.

A new poster for Troma's "Father's Day" is out there for your viewing pleasure and I"m giddy with delight. The movie which focuses on a man who rapes and kills fathers and the man trying to take him down comes out on June 19th. That's father's day in case you couldn't have guessed. You're a terrible person.

And because it's Friday the 13th and you really shouldn't go the entire day without seeing something really awful here's the first full trailer for the upcoming season 4 of "True Blood" that kicks off on June 26th. See you in hell folks.

In Real People News: 

A Florida woman was arrested on Tuesday after she whipped out her boobies in front of a school bus stop where a group of kids were standing. She was originally charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition but the charge was eventually downgraded but the judge, presumably because she's kind of hot.

A 20 year old Juggalo (yes I'm excited too) from Oklahoma has been arrested after he hit a person with his car and dragged him over 100 feet. Police are still trying to figure out what caused the crime but if I was a betting man I'd say it started over an argument about who likes rainbows more. And yes, he is wearing the face paint in his mug shot. Score!

Horror Headlines: Thursday March 10th, 2011

Your prayers have been answered my friends. A sequel to Tobe Hooper's 2004 remake of "The Toolbox Murders" is finally being made. The film titled "TBK - The Toolbox Murders 2" picks up right where the last film left off and I'm guessing involves a toolbox. Or maybe it takes places at this bar I went to one time called The Toolbox. But now I've said too much.

Movies about video games are usually pretty bad. So are remakes. But a remake of a video game movie? No way this can fail! Ladies and gentlemen I am proud to tell you that "Doom" is being remade. What could make this news better you might ask? What if I were to tell you that it's going to be in 3D? I'm sorry for just making you crap your pants with excitement but I'm sure you'll agree that it was worth it.

Michael Madsen and Rachel Hunter have been cast in Roger Corman's next film titled "Piranhaconda". The movie is obviously about a half piranha half anaconda that runs amok all over the place. According to everything I've read the movie will premier on Syfy sometimes in early 2012 but that can't be right, this has to be getting a wide release.

Brazilian actor Jose Padilha has been cast as the villian in Neill Blomkamp's next film titled "Elysium". The movie is Bloomkamp's first release since his much loved "District 9" and if I'm a betting man will feature a lot more waxing. Cause ya know, this Jose guy is Brazilian... They wax a lot? They can't all be zingers folks!

In Real People News: 

A 54 year old Connecticut woman is being brought up on charges after she reportedly forced her adopted son to sleep in a dog cage because he kept wetting the bed. The obvious question you have to ask is where did the dog go? Into the bed? And if the dog can go a entire night without wetting a bed and the kid can't did she really do anything wrong?

Two women in Pennsylvania were convicted of stealing two Wal-Mart gift cards from a 9 year old girl this past week. They were sentenced to sitting outside of the courthouse for almost 5 hours holding giant signs explaining their crime. When I was 13 I shoplifted some "90210" trading cards because I thought it was funny. Now more than ever I thank God I never got caught.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday January 18th, 2011

This isn't a trailer for the "Mother's Day" remake but it is some sort of international sales promo that's found it's way online. Truth be told I've read the synopsis and watched the video and I'm still not 100% sure what the movie is about but it still looks pretty dandy. I assume it takes place on mothers day, right? Someone? I'm so confused and frightened.

"Gut" is a indie movie about two guys who end up watching some sort of awful movie based on one of the guy's suggestions and things get weird. They don't tell you what the movie is but my guess is it's some sort of snuff, autopsy or French film. Feel free to make your own guesses.

James Franco is set to direct and star in a new film about the real life slasher Richard Ramirez, better know as "The Night Stalker". Here's the fun part, Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell is also set to produce the film. Just tossing this out there, but what about getting that guy from Crazytown to compose the score?

If you had to put together the greatest cast of all time who would you pick? Don't bother thinking about it because the makers of "The Bleeding" have already done it. The answer? Vinnie Jones, Michael Matthias, Michael Madsen, DMX, Armand Assante and Kat Von D. Take a few minutes to compose yourself before checking out the clip because you might vomit from excitement.

In Real People News: 

This is why the Druids invented cell phones with video cameras. The Boston Blazer's which are some sort of local team that play some sport are in trouble after their halftime show features three women dressed in next to nothing gave their mascot lap dances. The only disappointing part? The team apologized for the good time after the show. Boo Boston!

When a mother and daughter take out time to do things together it's a wonderful thing. That is of course unless that mother and daughter are torturing animals and keeping the corpses in their house like this duo on Long Island. Just to confirm that isn't a wonderful thing at all, unless you're some kind of sicko, then it's probably right up your alley.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday December 15th, 2009

Jumping in on the success of "Paranormal Activity" and the like comes the quietly filmed Chris Peckover Film, "Undocumented". Shifting focus to a film crew crossing the border with a group of illegal immigrants, all falls to pieces when they encounter a group of sadistic radicals.

Robert Englund and Michael Madsen sign on for a new thriller called "Web Cam 3D". Hosting a killer party filmed by webcams, where viewers get to vote on who lives or dies? Didn't we see this in a "Halloween" sequel already?

In Real People News: 

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was struck in the face with a spiked cathedral model by an angry protester during a routine press conference.

Former "Family Ties" child star Brian Bonsall is facing jail time after beating his best friend with a bar stool in a drug induced rage. His pretty butterfly neck tattoo should make him popular in prison.
