Horror Headlines: Thursday October 21st, 2010

Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer are 100% confirmed to be the duo to bring the upcoming "Hellraiser" remake to life. If those names rings a bell you might recognize them as the pair that brought us all the "My Bloody Valentine" remake, and that was in 3D! So good news... right? Ah whatever.

Here's some new images from "Saw 3D" and they're chock full of trappy goodness. I'm also pretty sure they're full of spoiler goodness because when I see the film and I see the guy about to lose his hand and I think, "Gee I wonder if this guy is going to lose his hand" I'll remember, "Oh yeah he does, I saw it in the 75,000 images they released from the movie."

It's always sad when the last movie a famous actor makes before he dies turns out to be a pile of crap. So I was really worried when I watched the new trailer for the exorcism flick "The Rite" staring Anthony Hopkins. Then I realized that it was Dennis Hopper I was thinking of and Anthony Hopkins is still very much alive. So it doesn't really matter if the movie sucks or not. I can't tell you what a giant relief this is to me.

Jason Rothenberg, who's current writing credit is a TV movie I've never heard of, has been confirmed to write the upcoming "Twilight Zone" movie. I have nothing good or bad to say about this because I have no idea who he is. But you check back in a few months and I'll think of something, just you wait.

In Real People News: 

So here's a 48.5 inch cat named Stewie from Reno Nevada. That makes him the worlds longest cat and also completely freaking disgusting. Congratulations Stewie.

On this day in history: 

1978 – Australian civilian pilot Frederick Valentich vanishes in a Cessna 182 over the Bass Strait south of Melbourne, after reporting contact with an unidentified aircraft.

I guess Bob Weinstein was paying attention to this week's box office results, because he's announced that there is already a 3D "Halloween" sequel in the works, and one that will be shot without Rob Zombie. They're already in talks with a director, whom Weinstein declined to name, although whoever it is will have a hell of a time making a sequel considering he has to deal with all of the baggage brought by Zombie to the series story-wise.

The 2010 "Girls of Scotchworthy" calender is now available. Love indie horror and the babes that work in it? Do yourself a favor and purchase a calender from these guys.

Nic Cage has signed on to "Drive Angry", a revenge/action movie from "My Bloody Valentine 3D" director Patrick Lussier. That's right baby, Nicholas Cage in glorious 3D. Better start preparing your mindholes for that now.

In Real People News: 

Naked dude hi-jacks school bus, but that visual isn't as intriguing as the one of the children who decided to jump out of a moving bus to get away. I smell a "Speed" sequel.

Now teens are using social networking sites to arrainge fights. Finally, a much more efficient way to organize a beatdown.

Not gonna lie, that does look pretty dirty. Don't spend too much time trying to work out the details of what exactly is happening though, that can't be good for you.

On this day in history: 

1888: Jack the Ripper kills his first known victim, prostitute Mary Ann Nichols, slitting her throat from ear to ear.

Rumor has it that FOX Atomic, Fox's genre wing responsible for pictures such as "The Hills Have Eyes 2", "28 Weeks Later" and "Turistas", will be shut down next week. No word on how this may affect "Jennifer's Body", Diablo Cody's new film which was produced under the banner.

"True Blood" Season 2 teaser poster. And here I am continuing to report on it despite our readers telling me they're not interested. Yes, I am dense. It's also a slow news day, so bear with me.

Eli Roth's out talking more about "Thanksgiving" after the announcement last week that he would like to piggyback it onto a bigger budget film of his. This time he says he's writing it with his longtime friend Jeff Rendell, who will also play "The Pilgrim".

According to Patrick Lussier, there will be no "My Bloody Valentine 3D" sequel. That comes from Lions Gate, who were surprised at the film's BO success but not too jazzed about greenlighting a second go-round. The film is plenty open-ended for them to have done one, but apparently they're calling it a day with this potential franchise. "MBV3D" hits DVD and Blu-ray May 19th.

In Real People News: 

9-year-old kid dies in Brooklyn after going up to the top of his roof with a plastic parachute, and taking a swan-dive off of it. His parents said he was imitating Jeff Hardy of the WWE, and that it was a "game he played all the time".

Here's a new one, female teacher gets fired for taking 4 students to an all male strip club. You always hear about creepy guy teachers doing stuff like this, it's nice to see the women getting in on the "questionable decision" game. Now that's equality!

On this day in history: 

1979: President Jimmy Carter is attacked by a Killer Swamp Rabbit, while on vacation in Plains GA. The rabbit swam menacingly towards him, and he had to repel the ferocious creature with a paddle. There were no injuries. That's what happens when you elect a President from the South, folks.
