Prometheus (REVIEW)

Noomi Rapace in Prometheus

Ridley Scott announced himself on the directing scene in 1979 with "Alien," then followed that now-classic film, with another all-time-great in "Blade Runner." The man could well have hung up his directing hat at that point and basked in nerd adulation into perpetuity. He didn't, instead moving from fantasy with "Legend" to more mainstream films and eventually Academy Award nominees and winners.

Dennis Iliadis, the guy who fixed "The Last house on the Left", is in talks to direct "The Demonologists". The film will focus on a group of ghost hunters who find themselves in deep caca when they stumble upon a demon infestation. I hope they have ghost hunter uniforms, those are adorable.

The wait is almost over kids, "The Walking Dead" hits AMC on Sunday and to get you all pumped up here's 5 minutes from the first episode. Are you mildly turned on? I am. Wow I've never noticed what amazing eyes you have. What are you doing later?

"Burke And Hare" is a comedy based on a true story about two men who fall into the dangerous world of providing cadavers for medical research. Which kind of sounds like "I Sell the Dead" but according to the new one sheet this one has Simon Pegg and looks like it might not suck. So there's some differences right there.

Ridley Scott was on the crapper recently and decided that he wants Noomi Rapace from "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" to star in the "Alien" prequel. So of course it's my job to tell you about it. Take a good hard look at me kids, I'm you in ten years! Good luck sleeping tonight.

In Real People News: 

What's the best way to smuggle 2,000 diamonds into a country? I have no idea but apparently putting them into condoms and swallowing them won't work. Or at least some guy from Sri Lanka couldn't do it. Sounds like a challenge to me.

Do you love live fresh crabs but hate all the trouble of going to the grocery store? Sure, we all do. Well the Chinese have found a fun way to get around all that by installing a vending machine that dispenses live crabs in the subway. Eat up!

On this day in history: 

2002 – Ho Chi Minh City ITC Inferno, a fire destroys a luxurious department store where 1500 people shopping. Over 60 people died and over 100 are missing. It is the deadliest disaster in Vietnam during peacetime.

Horror Headlines: Friday October 8th, 2010

Dan Aykroyd delivered some positive news recently about the script writing process of the long awaited "Ghostbusters 3". Apparently him and the gang have created Bill Murry the "comic role of a lifetime". I'm guessing that means laser beam eyes that shoot seltzer water, because that would be crazy funny.

As if you needed another reason to visit Spanish Fort Alabama! "Halloween" will be showing in all its big screen glory for one night only along with a special Q&A session with Tony Moran (Michael Myers) and Brian Andrews (Tommy Doyle). So that's great news... for everyone in Spanish fort... Alabama.

William Peter Blatty and William Friedkin, the team behind "The Exorcist" are currently working on a new flick titled "Dimiter". The plot is full of large words that confused the hell out of me but you should know it's a supernatural thrill set in Jerusalem. I think there might be some split pea soup too.

Noomi Rapace of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" fame is apparently in talks to play a role in the upcoming "Alien" prequel. There's also about 70 other actresses in talks for the same role so I'm not sure if this is news or not. Let's go with yes because you're reading it. Sucka!

In Real People News: 

A group of German Catholics in Berlin are on the warpath to do away with Santa because they think he takes away from the true meaning of Christmas. There's nothing I can really say here that isn't going to be extremely offensive so I'm just going to let you put your own jokes together.

On this day in history: 

1974 – Franklin National Bank collapses due to fraud and mismanagement; at the time it is the largest bank failure in the history of the United States.
