Horror Headlines: Tuesday October 4th, 2011

Another day another "Paranormal Activity 3" clip and man oh man check this one out. There's a girl sleeping and then... well I think there might be something in the doorway? I have no idea what the hell is going on honestly. But I know it's frightening as hell. I think. 99% sure that's what it is.

Kevin J. Foxe is credited as being an executive producer for "The Blair Witch Project" which I assume means he was in charge of finding the perfect sticks to make those weird dolls. Or at least finding someone to go do that for him. Well now he's bringing all that talent to the directing role of a new spooky ghost story involving a group of college students title "The Ghost Experiment 3D". Can you guess if it's going to be in 3D or not? If you guessed no you are wrong... and really stupid.

Here's some news you didn't see coming. Sherri Moon Zombie is going to star in "Lords Of Salem" which is currently being directed by her lover Rob Zombi. If I was a betting man I'd put my money on her playing a freaky deeky who screams a lot and gets naked. That's just me though. She's actually been confirmed as a radio DJ who unleashes a coven of witches from days of yore. So probably not a lot of stripping there.

In a recent interview Mr. David Cronenberg alluded to the fact that he has already written a sequel to his 1985 remake of "The Fly". While there's no actual discussion of the film being made it looks like there's a god possibility it could go into production sometime in the near future. He spent the rest of the interview talking about this season's "Dancing With The Stars". It got kind of weird.

In Real People News: 

I never realized that snakes crap but here's a guy in Ohio who is under arrest after he apparently shoved his pet snake's doodie into his girlfriend's mouth. Try keeping your lunch down today while thinking about that.

And get ready for the end of America as we know it because the Hairy Crazy Ants are here. Currently invading Mississippi and working their way south the ants are bring death and destruction to everything in their path. Alright maybe not death but they're messing crap up. There's a video too which shows them in all their crazy ant glory. Pray for your death people!

8 Other Shape Shifters

Werewolves are all the rage these days with the release of Universal's "The Wolfman", but why should the dog boys of mid February get all the fun? Throughout literature and film, there have been quite a few other were-creatures that stalked the night as well as many other folks that just happen to change shape as well! So to celebrate our furry friend, I give to you 8 Other Shape Shifters to raise your hackles!

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!
