shaun of the dead

Horror Headlines: Friday July 8th, 2011

There's a brand spanking new trailer for "Final Destination 5" out and hey did you know Tony Todd's in this one? So that's something, right? And it's in 3D. Tony Todd in 3D. Man this one is going to be awesome. And I didn't think I'd have anything to say about the new trailer. Thank god and baby Jesus for Tony Todd.

"Jeepers Creepers" mastermind and official NAMBLA member Victor Salva recently let out that if and when "Jeepers Creepers 3" happens it'll be the last installment in the series. Please Victor, say it aint so. He did come out and say that 3D probably wouldn't be an option for the film that's had a script for some time now and just can't seem to get off the ground. Let's keep our fingers crossed that things work out for the convicted sex offender.

If you're holding your breath for a "Zombieland" sequel you better have some pretty hefty lungs my friends. In a recent interview Jesse Eisenberg gave an update on the status of the follow up and it looks like other than some form of a script being worked on not too much else has happened. He does go on to say that all the actors are on board but the longer it takes the less interesting the film will be. Then he kicked a puppy and shot a bald eagle.

And because it's a slow day here's the trailer for a new Cuban zombie flick cleverly titled "Juan of the Dead". As you can expect it's a nod to Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's "Shaun of the Dead". And by nod I mean there's a cigar smoking mental patient in the corner giving himself whiplash he's nodding so hard. Ay caramba.

In Real People News: 

I'm pretty sure 30 years ago this was the theme of at least 12 movies but a Oregon man is under arrested after dressing up as a woman and sneaking into a woman's lock room to do a little peeping. Of course it turns out he's also a convicted sex offender which I'm pretty sure was never a plot point in any of those movies but it was a long time ago. I don't remember them that well.

And lastly here's a story about a man who apparently couldn't wait to get out of the porn shop he was robbing to sample the products because police found him hiding in one of the back closets going to town on a blow up doll. When the mood strikes I guess there's no stopping some people.

"Left 4 Winchester" Brings Shaun to L4D

Ever since Valve opened up "Left 4 Dead" to mod development, both game and zombie enthusiasts have scrambled to recreate their favorite scenes from famous zombie films in the game. Movies like "Night of the Living Dead" and "Dawn of the Dead" are easy targets, but a crew of modders has assembled to work on 'Left 4 Winchester,' a custom campaign based on "Shaun of the Dead." The campaign is broken up in sequence to fit the movie, starting at Shaun's living room (above) and ending in the back room of the iconic Winchester Tavern.
