Remakes

The Thing (REVIEW)

When a team of roughnecks staffing a remote Antarctic outpost come into contact with a strange alien life form that infects and mimics the appearance of its host, things begin to quickly spin out of control as no one can be sure of who has been infected and who remains clean. Led by McCready (Kurt Russell), the survivors attempt to cleanse their research station. Suspicions mount though, and between claustrophobia and the brutal elements, options begin to dwindle.

The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (2005) (REVIEW)

All the hand-wringing and fanboy indignation that accompanied the early days of the “remake everything” phase has mostly subsided to shrugs of resignation and cautious optimism. There are bad remakes and good remakes and any movie with a modicum of popular recognition stands a good shot at being remade if there’s a chance of making a few bucks off of it. From a purely financial standpoint, remakes make sense. Unless you’re a b-actor on the convention circuit, fanboy passion doesn’t pay the bills.

Trailer: "I Spit On Your Grave", Why God, Why?!

I can get behind a lot of sick crap but I have no idea why anyone would want to see a remake of "I Spit On Your Grave". The only people I can see being interested in this are sick SOB's who have to watch this kind of crap for a weekly podcast... oh wait. Crap!

Anyway here's a new trailer for you to view. From the looks of things the castration scene from the original has made it into the remake along with all the rape awfulness you can handle. Which isn't much I hope.

"I Spit On Your Grave" comes out this September, sinner.

Horror Headlines: Thursday July 1st, 2010

Gilmore Girls alumni Lauren Graham has decided that Wes Craven's upcoming "Scream 4" is no longer something she's interested in. Actress Lake Bell also left the project last week, leaving me to wonder what the hell is wrong with this movie.

In remake knews, more details are starting to emerge about the forthcoming "It" remake, a project I'm particularly excited about. Although I might be crucified for saying as much, the original really isn't that scary, and the material could certainly use an update. Let the flames begin.

Because the entire world wants it, Sony Stage 6 is preparing to shoot "Hostel: Part III" this August. The feature will be directed by Scott Spiegel, the man responsible for the grossly underrated slasher "Intruder". I'm sure you're as excited as everyone else about this project.

In Real People News: 

What's worse than having the guy sitting next to you on the plane break wind during the entire flight? Having scores of maggots fall on you from the luggage compartment above your head. The culprit: A suitcase full of spoiled meat. Yummy!

If you think the family dog isn't capable of chowing down on a three month-old baby, think again. Normally I'd say something snarky and oddly inappropriate, but even I'm a little disturbed by this one

Horror Headlines: Wednesday December 9th, 2009

In worrisome news, the upcoming "Nightmare on Elm Street" remake is heading back under the lens for re-shoots after recent test screenings. So far it looks like it will only affect a small diner scene that doesn't involve Freddy, but re-shoots are never a good sign.

The fourth installment for the "Resident Evil" franchise, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" has been pushed back to January 2011. If you're curious for behind the scenes action on this 3D sequel, be sure to follow Milla Jovovich on Twitter as she tweets her way through the shooting of the film.

Good news for you "Dexter" fans; thanks in large part to John Lithgow, the fourth season of the show continues to set records for Showtime. This past Sunday's episode pulled in over 2.1 million viewers. You can pretty much count on our favorite little sociopath coming back next season.

From the laugh out loud news desk, Brittany Murphy has been fired from the upcoming thriller "The Caller", mere days into shooting. She's now officially been replaced by "Twilight" vixen Rachelle LeFevre.

We can finally put to rest one worry about the upcoming "Wolfman", asthe MPAA has officially given the movie an R rating for bloody horror, violence and gore!

In Real People News: 

A Maryland woman kidnaps a pregnant homeless woman and proceeds to try and cut her unborn daughter out of her abdomen. Mother and baby are both expected to make full recoveries.

New Zealand motorists found themselves in a bizarre traffic jam when the tailgate of a truck opens spilling its cargo of blood, fat and discarded animal pieces across the highway. Unfortunately, hopes that it was just a spill from a Weta Workshop truck were completely crushed.

Archeologists find evidence of mass cannibalism at a 7,000 year old site in south west Germany, justifying my refusal to eat liverwurst.

New "Wolfman" Trailer And Images

Although the film doesn’t come out till February I’m going to come right out and say it, I’ve got “Wolfman” fever. We’re two trailers in now, the second of which was recently released and can be viewed below, and I can’t find one fault with the film. Alright maybe the wired Gallum looking kid is kind of crappy but my love for kick ass wolf transformation shots outweighs my extreme hatred for all things “Lord Of The Rings”.

Take a look at the brand spanking new images and trailer below and post up your thoughts.

Cronenberg to remake "The Fly"

News came yesterday that David Cronenberg is said to be returning to his masterpiece "The Fly" in hopes of remaking it. Many websites are comparing Cronenberg's remake of "The Fly" to Haneke's remake of his own "Funny Games," but even then, Haneke was remaking his film so that it would reach a larger audience. What interests me the most about this news is that Cronenberg just directed "The Fly" as an opera, which seems odd to me that he would want to return to it again in film.

I've included a vignette from the opera above, they even have the arm wrestling scene!

Redband Trailer For The "It's Alive" Remake

I wasn't even born yet when the original "It's Alive" came out but when I finally saw it the film taught me one thing, never ever EVER have a baby. They will kill you. They won't even wait until they grow up to do it. Nope, a newborn child will come out of the womb and go straight into slasher mode. Fear the children, people.
