Horror Headlines: Wednesday February 24th, 2010

There's been a lot of talk about "Scream IV" as of late but according to Wes Craven via his twitter, he still hasn't signed to direct the film. "I'm still in talks but nothing has been finalized." You'd think that would be high on the list of things to get done when they started discussing a fourth film with him.

Starting this weekend, you'll have a new place to find some horror on your cable dial. MTV will start a weekly horror block every Saturday night at 10pm. The new programming kicks off this weekend with "Land of the Dead" which will be followed by "The Hills Have Eyes" remake, "The House of the Devil" and more.

In case you've forgotten, Rob Zombie has directed an episode of "CSI: Miami" which will be airing soon. In a recent interview, the director showed off a new trailer for the episode and made comments that he's not sure how much TV he will direct since he's geared more towards movies. In Rob Zombie interview speak, that means he'll be directing an entire season of "CSI: Rednecks" by next fall.

Hammer Studios continues its rise from the dead by acquiring its next film, a big screen adaptation of Susan Hill's "The Woman In Black".

Director Russell Mulcahy has been tapped to direct the pilot for MTV's recently announced "Teen Wolf" reboot. When you consider Mulcahy directed the classic "Highlander", there is some reason to grow excited. Then you remember he also directed "Highlander 2: The Quickening" and that all goes out the window.

Lakeshore Entertainment and Kevin Grevioux, the team up that brought you "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" are preparing to bring you more of the unique brand of action horror with an adaptation of Grevioux's comic, "I, Frankenstein". At this time, it is still unclear how they will be working in Kate Beckinsale in tight leather.

New MTV Web Series "Savage County"

MTV can do no wrong in my eyes. Alright they can do a bunch of wrong but their new online web series "Savage County" actually looks pretty good. And I'm not just saying that because I'm trying to get on next seasons "Real World". Although I would be awesome for the house.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday June 2nd, 2009

I'm actually pretty proud that it took me nearly two days to realize that "Twilight" won best movie at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend. If you also didn't know, consider yourselves lucky.

Gore Verbinski says he's pretty much off of "Bioshock", mainly because he doesn't think his schedule will allow him to shoot outside of the US for a year and a half, which will pretty much be a requirement due to the film's logistics and budget.

International trailer for "Train", the remake of "Terror Train" that it turns out isn't a remake but still has "Train" in the name. Got all that? I'm glad, because it was probably the most pointless sentence I've ever written.

Lionsgate is moving forward with a 3D remake of the 80's film "Happy Birthday To Me". The original is a fairly classic 80's slasher with a mess of an ending, that most people seem to love. I was a little peeved. Either way, it will probably make for pretty simple fair to remake.

In Real People News: 

High School teen in trouble for eating pig testicles on a dare. I know that animal testicles are eaten in certain parts of the country, but not like this. The kid ate the nuts off of a fetal pig, that had been soaking in FORMALDEHYDE. So, now you see how that may pose a problem.

On this day in history: 

1793: Jean-Paul Marat recites names of 29 people to the French Assembly, virtually all of whom will be guillotined. Over the next year 17,000 will be executed in the Reign of Terror.

Childhood Terror: Joe's Apartment

Last night, I came home to my apartment to discover that my power was half out. Then it went all the way out. Then, my burglar alarm shorted out and went off for an hour until my landlord could drive out and pull the plug. It was one of those situations where I thought "man, could this shit get any worse?" After waking up this morning and reading Shelton's "Bug" review, I remembered that things could be much worse; I could live in "Joe's Apartment."
