Horror Headlines: Monday September 30th, 2013

Is having to pee in the middle of the night just something that happens as you get older? I don't know when the last time I actually slept through the night was. I'm telling you right now kids, once you reach 30 your life is pretty much just a wide awake nightmare.

The good folks over at Image Entertainment have gone ahead and picked up the U.S. distribution rights to "All Cheerleaders Die", a new horror comedy written and directed by Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson. The flick follows a young loner who joins the cheerleading squad and her pissed off ex-friend who tries out her spooky witchcraft on her and her new cheermates. Is cheermates one word or two? Is it even a word? God I hate Arcade Fire.

"Night Film" is an awful name for a movie. It's an even worse name for a book. And, yes that's right you guessed it, it's the worst possible name for a movie based on a book by the same name. But it's happening, there's no fighting it, and it's find a director in the form of Rupert Wyatt. The movie follows a reporter who's investigating the suspected suicide of the daughter of a horror film director. Well alright, I guess the title makes sense, but still it shouldn't be happening. Not on my watch.

Zach Galligan took to his twitters to announce that he'll be playing the lead in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Brian Keene's "The Cage". The movie will focus on a group of employees at an electronic store who find themselves trapped in the store after a gunman comes in and starts shooting people. You see it's a metaphor. "The Cage" is actually the store. Because the people are trapped in there. I get things and I like to make sure people know that I get things.

Saxon Sharbino, who kind of looks like the mom from the original "Poltergeist" has signed on to play the mom in the remake of "Poltergeist. This works put pretty well because if I have one complaint about remakes it's that people never look like people from the original movie and that confuses me. Also the thought of there being another Craig T. Nelson out there has given me a semi. I'm kidding, Sam Rockwell is playing the dad. He also gives me a semi. Don't judge me.

Ahh boy, it's always tough when your homemade porn finds its way online. It's even tougher when your homemade porn includes a dog. And by tougher I mean illegal.

I have never been able to understand how anyone could be a preschool teacher. Not because I don't respect the job but because you're dealing with a bunch of screaming kids the entire day. This guy in California though, he was a pre-school teacher until he hit one of the 6 year olds he was suppose to be watching with a metal chair. So I guess maybe I could do the job.

Retro Clip: "Clownhouse" (1989)

The VHS cover alone was enough to give me nightmares, but the movie was pretty darn creepy too. Casey (Nathan Forrest Winters), one of three brothers, has an intense fear of clowns. His older brother Geoffrey (Brian McHugh) mostly sympathizes with Casey's fears, even though he doesn't understand them. Oldest brother Randy (Sam Rockwell) however, constantly makes fun of Casey. After a night at the circus, where Casey runs away from three clowns that approach him, the boys return home to their empty house.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday May 5th, 2010

J.J. Abrams has set the internet on fire once again as details for his next film "Super 8" begin to surface. Focused on a group of teens shooting a film on a Super 8 camera in the 70's or 80's, they find a nasty surprise when they finally get the film developed. Early speculation marks "Super 8" as a possible prequel to "Cloverfield".

The Spierig brothers, who last brought us the vampire thriller "Daybreakers", have signed on for a surprising new project; the boys plan on bringing us "Power of the Dark Crystal", a belated sequel to "The Dark Crystal"! Early reports state that they will continue with a mix of puppetry and live action actors, so Andy Serkis can turn his 3D motion capture device back off.

Sam Rockwell adds to his already varied resume as he signs on for Jon Favreau's comic book adaptation "Cowboys Vs. Aliens". Playing an old west bartender signing on to fight the little green men, this just further proves that I'll watch anything Sam Rockwell does, I don't really care what they cast him as.

In Real People News: 

During this past weekend's Free Comic Book day, a shop customer decided to change the rules a bit as he lifted a $150 copy of the X-Men Omnibus into his backpack. Thankfully, nerds will be nerds as the thief was detained by Spider Man as two Jedi Knights blocked the front doors of the shop.

Police were brought in to contain a drunken patron in a local KFC. When asked to identify himself, the drunken man stated "my name is Cheesy Beef Burrito". All while chewed food dribbled down his chin.

On this day in history: 

2349 BC - Noah's Ark lands on Mount Ararat, according to calculations by James Ussher, Archbishop of the Church of Ireland.

This trailer debuted last night over at IGN, and holy mackerel is it amazing looking. Directed by Duncan Jones and starring Sam Rockwell, the film follows a lone technician on a moon base who has just two weeks before returning home, when strange events begin to test his sanity.
