remake announcements

Horror Headlines: June 29th, 2009

"Hellified" is a supernatural action movie about a journey to hell, currently in development from Paramount.

Official site launch for "Trick 'R Treat", which finally hits DVD this October. For a great interview with Mike Dougherty on the whole ordeal, be sure to check out the latest issue of Horror Hound Magazine.

Poster and DVD Art for Dave Parker's "The Hills Run Red". The slasher flick is about a group of film fans who are obsessed with finding a print of a long lost stalk & slash, who follow a lead out into the woods and realize that the film... wait for it... never ended! They're now stuck right in the middle of the carnage, as you would expect.

John Landis has sold the remake rights to "An American Werewolf in London" to Dimension Films. Dimension, you may remember, has struggled for over 2 years now to get its "Hellraiser" remake going, with several directors leaving the project due to creative differences. We'll have to wait and see, but that doesn't bode well for this "Werewolf" redo.

In Real People News: 

Take heed, people, trading Fritos for a blowjob does indeed constitute prostitution. I know, I was surprised, too.

This just in: French people are assholes. After a young woman committed suicide recently by jumping from the Eiffel Tower and landing on the glass roof of a restaurant below, many of the patrons just continued eating their meals. Classy guys, classy.

Homeless man crushed in garbage truck, lives to tell the horribly, horribly detailed story.

On this day in history: 

1967: Actress Jayne Mansfield is decapitated in a car crash, when her convertible collides with a parked tractor-trailer.

Wanna take your top off in "A Nightmare on Elm St."? They weren't interested in me, something about "not having huge fake tits". Ah well.

A dark version of "Snow White" sounds pretty awesome, although I'm guessing they won't have to try so hard to make it scary. Those old Disney films are still terrifying.

John Lithgow joins "Dexter"... as a serial killer. I'm nominating this for best story of the week, hands down.

"Sorority Row", the remake of the 1983 film "The House on Sorority Row", has been rated "R for strong bloody violence, language, some sexuality/nudity and some partying". So "partying" gets you an R rating these days? That's interesting.

"Alien" gets a remake, apparently shooting down any hope that it might get a 5th installment. Supposedly though, Michael Costigan, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott are all on board as producers, and have picked their own director. So I guess that's good news?

In Real People News: 

Interested in buying an old funeral home at auction? Would it entice you if I said that there are 4 dead bodies decomposing somewhere in the building that have been there for years? No? You drive a hard bargain, sir.

Understaffed health clinic in Prague offers free boob jobs to prospective doctors and nurses. Hmmm... that's certainly ONE way to go.

3 legged turtle uses Tonka Toy to get around. That should fulfill your warm and fuzzy quotient for the year. I promise to get back to scaring you tomorrow.

On this day in history: 

1946: Manhattan Project scientists Klaus Fuchs and John von Neumann file for a secret patent on their design for the hydrogen bomb initiator.

Horror Headlines: Monday apriil 27th, 2009

Here's the trailer for "The Cell 2". So ya, that happened. The film goes direct to DVD on June 16th.

A list of the schools that will be used as external locations for the "Nightmare on Elm St." remake shoot, which will apparently be shot in Chicago. Area students over 16 are welcome to audition as extras. The film begins shooting May 5th under the direction of Samuel Bayer.

Bill Murray to have a cameo in Woody Harrelson's zomcom "Zombieland", a film which just got a lot cooler.

Here's your "bang your head off your desk" story for Monday morning. "Videodrome" is being remade at Universal as a "large-scale sci-fi thriller". Oh boy, that's up there with one of the worst sentences I've ever had to type on this site.

But wait... there's more to this story than meets the eye. Universal has also put Gore Verbinski's adaptation of "Bioshock" on hiatus because of money concerns. So let's recap. The same company that doesn't have money for the amazing original property "Bioshock", does have the money to remake a dumbed down version of "Videodrome" as some sort of big budget action/sci-fi movie. Kind of gives you the warm & fuzzies, doesn't it?

It's being reported that Robert Rodriguez is aiming to shoot "Machete", the full version of his "Grindhouse" trailer, in June. Danny Trejo to star. This should be interesting.

In Real People News: 

Japanese pop star found naked in a public park in Tokyo, screaming his fool head off about how there was "nothing wrong with being naked". Certainly not. Carry on.

I'm not a huge science fiction fan, but I've seen enough of the films to know that anything being described as a "space blob" is bad news. Trust me.

On this day in history: 

1940: Heinrich Himmler gives orders to construct a concentration camp in Oswiecim, Poland. Only 14 months later, Auschwitz is open for business.
