Horror Headlines: Tuesday August 18th, 2009

Anne Rice loves to write about Lestat as if he's a real life person... oh, and she would also love it if Robert Downey Jr. signed onto the role. Both of those are things I learned from a recent posting to her website regarding the casting rumors that came out late last week.

Overture films is pushing their sci-fi film "Pandorum" ahead a week to make way for "Jennifer's Body". This puts the film at a September 25th release date, up against (for now) the remake of "The Crazies".

Myspace has the first official clip from "The Final Destination". Ya, this is going to be terrible, and probably a little awesome too, but mostly terrible.

Legendary horror writer Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in this Castle" has been picked up for an adaptation by Michael Douglas' production company.

In Real People News: 

When you up and remove your genitals seemingly out of nowhere, one thing you don't expect to hear from the doctor is "good job".

People are BBQ'ing dogs in New Zealand. Strike 1 for New Zealand. They're lucky they gave us Peter Jackson or they'd be dead to me right now.

Nobel laureate Sir William Golding, the guy who wrote "Lord of the Flies" admits to setting school age boys against each other for research while writing the book. Oh, and he maybe kind of tried to rape a girl when he was 15. Ya, it wasn't a great day for him.

On this day in history: 

1590: Sent to England to get supplies three years prior, John White finally returns to Roanoke Island and discovers his colony "strongly enclosed with a high palisade of great trees, with [curtain walls] and [bastions] -- very fort-like." There is no sign of the settlers or where they may have gone.

Time for the worst thing you've ever seen to kick off your Monday... Selma Hayek as a bearded lady in "The Vampire's Assisant". The film was formerly known as "Cirque Du Freak", and stars John C. Reilly as a vampire who... has an assistant.

Rider Strong joins the cast of the indie film "Darkening Sky", about a man having alien abduction nightmares only to discover it's more than a dream.

First poster for Joe Dante's "The Hole 3D". The film follows two young brothers who discover a hole in their basement, and the hijinks that follow when they decide to venture into it.

Here's the full synopsis for Robert Rodriguez's "Machete"... and let's just say that once you match up the actor's names it's... special.

In Real People News: 

Take note ladies, setting a man's genitals on fire is definitely an effective way to get him to stop harassinng you. Those guys don't always take a hint.

600 lb prisoner sneaks gun into jail in one of his fat rolls. I don't think I can blame the guy who searched him... would YOU go digging around in there?

Former French President Chirac claims George W. Bush quoted the prophecy of Gog and Magog to him to try and appeal to their "mutual faiths" in order to gain his cooperation in the Iraq war. So it's official, our president quoted "C.H.U.D." as a matter of foreign policy. (flip to about 7:02 and sit back and enjoy).

On this day in history: 

1969: Leno and Rosemary LaBianca are brutally murdered in their Los Feliz, California home by followers of Charles Manson. They take some of their victims' blood and smear HEALTER SKELTER on the refrigerator door.

Paris Hilton to guest star on the upcoming season of "Supernatural". I would make a joke about Supernatural being lame, but I've noticed lately that its fanbase is especially rabid when it comes to these things... so I'm putting up the white flag. The show's great! Love it!

Bryan Singer to produce 2012 themed miniseries for Syfy. Wow, that's the greatest/worst sentence I've ever typed. I don't think I'll be able to resist.

News landed today that starting on September 2nd, the unreleased episodes from last summer's "Fear Itself" will be available on FearNET. There will be 5 episodes in total.

On casting news, "True Blood's" Ann Woll joins the cast of Darren Lynn Bousman's "Mother's Day" remake. No word on what character she'll be playing. The production is shooting for a Spring release, so expect production to ramp up pretty quickly as we move into late Summer/Fall.

So Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" has the weirdest cast ever. Robert Deniro, Lindsay Lohan, Michelle Rodriguez... I'm pretty sure this is some kind apocalyptic sign here. Syfy should write this into their miniseries.

In Real People News: 

This guy's scam to cheat on his wife and swindle women through Craigslist was going really well, until he got caught and they super-glued his dangle to his stomach. Awwwwww shit... I don't care what that guy did, that is NOT COOL.

Newscorp says online news will not be free for much longer. He added, "unless of course you visit bloodygoodhorror.com, that's the greatest site ever and it's totally free". Ya I thought that was weird too, but I thought it best not to question.

On this day in history: 

1945: At 9:15am, Col. Paul Tibbets releases "Little Boy" over Hiroshima and executes a hard, 159-degree turn. 40 seconds later, the Atomic Bomb detonates, yielding a 12.5 kiloton explosion and a huge, black mushroom cloud. About 45,000 people are killed immediately, and another 200,000 are killed in later years by leukemia and other radiation illnesses.

Were you eagerly awaiting a sequel to Tobe Hooper's "Toolbox Murders" remake? Me neither, but they're trying to placate me by throwing Jeffrey Combs, Tony Todd and Lance Henriksen into the mix. Did it work? You can check out the teaser trailer at the site and tell me.

Jaume Balaguero to direct "Flatmate". Balaguero is one half of the duo behind the original Spanish film "[REC]", but little else is known about the project at this time.

Sweet Jesus, a sequel to "The Messengers"? ME NO WANT. If you want, there's a trailer at the link.

Simon Baker to star in "The Killer Inside Me, as a really handsome murderer who kills other handsome people, like Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, and Kate Hudson. It's just so realistic!

Christopher Lloyd has joined the cast of "Piranha 3D". I'm officially going to start having wet dreams about this movie. Stay tuned for details.

The adaptation of Steve Niles "Wake the Dead" is delayed because the WETA workshop has to work on "The Hobbit" for Guillermo Del Toro. Jesus, the guy's so freaking busy that now he's delaying other people's projects? Will his reign of pudgy Mexican tyranny ever end? (I kid, I kid)

In Real People News: 

Prostitute bites man's penis off after he tells her he can't pay. I'm no expert at this, but wouldn't you wait until afterwards to tell her you can't pay?

Hawaii, a great place for vacations, honeymoons, and apparently, flesh-eating bacteria. I'm guessing that won't be in the brochure, though.

On this day in history: 

1913: The latest brainchild of Russian aircraft design genius Igor Sikorsky embarks on its maiden flight. The Grand, easily the world's most luxurious passenger plane, includes such innovations as upholstered seats, a balcony, and even a lavatory.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday May 12th, 2009

Sam Mendes talks to MTV about his adaptation of the graphic novel "Preacher", including when we can expect it and whether or not there will be a sequel.

Buried in this interview with Brett Easton Ellis is news about "Silent Hill 2", weird huh? The news is that, according to Ellis, Roger Avary (writer of the original SH film) will be jumping behind the cameras for the sequel. Originally Avary had said that he wouldn't write the film unless the director of the first Christophe Gans returned, but if this news is true it looks like he may have changed his tune.

For serious, people, how many trailers for "Blood: the Last Vampire" have I posted about now? I know a lot of you are anticipating this title, I'm just wondering if this isn't overkill at this point.

Paul Scheer joins the cast of "Piranha 3D". Scheer (Human Giant, Best Week Ever), brings even more comedic talent to a film that's already looking silly as hell. Is it possible that they'll overshoot the "camp" mark and ruin it? Either way, I know I can' wait to find out!

Tons of behind the scenes photos from "Saw VI", including head shots of all the new cast members and some nice BTS shots. Enjoy.

In Real People News: 

When you're hanging out in the American South, and you see a sign that says "Tresspassers will be shot. Survivors will be reshot!!, it's probably the truth. I wouldn't risk it.

Krohn, an ultraconservative Spanish priest opposed to the Vatican II reforms, decided that the Pope must be killed for being an "agent of Moscow."
