Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 26th, 2013

Did you see the 2011 Israeli film "Rabies"? Me either but some guys I know did and they liked it so that's pretty much an Oscar win in my book. Well the film's creators, Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, has set "Big Bad Wolves" as their next project with a 2013 release in mind. The film follows three men who are linked by a series of terrible murders. Kind of like a fun club or something. But without the fun. And no one wants to be in the club.

"The Last Exorcism Part II" may or may not turn out to be hot dookie but that doesn't mean that the folks behind the film can't come up with some pretty entertaining ways to promote the flick. Case in point, a pretty dandy prank they played on a number of beauty shop goers. Is it funny? Yes it is. Is there a chance any of these people will come back to the shop? No. No there isn't.

I think Hot Topic ruined "The Crow" for all of us so I don't think anyone is really excited about the remake that's been kicking around for some time now. But what if I were to tell you that James McAvoy is being tossed around as a possible lead for the film? Would that change your mind? He was good in "Wanted" right? No, you're right. This still sounds awful.

Kodi Smit-Mcphee, the annoying kid from "The Road" is going to be in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". He may or may not play a monkey. Alright fine, he won't.

In Real People News: 

Remember residents of Florida. When you're fixin to make up a mess of waffles make sure you take your bullets out of the oven before you pre-heat it. Otherwise you're doggum foot gunna get shot off.

A PA woman is under arrest after she apparently attacked her boyfriend with a Playstation controller and a Furby. I had no idea they still made Furby's but then again what do I know. I'm not sitting in Pennsylvania arguing over who gets to make out with the cow first or whatever else they talk about there.

The Road (REVIEW)

The Road

The worst thing about 2011’s “The Road,” a Filipino horror film now available in the United States, is the title. Sharing the same name as the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy (and the film that followed), this “The Road” could get lost in the shuffle. And that would be a real shame, because it is a surprisingly strong film that gives you scares without falling into a ton of typical jump scares and cliché plotlines.

Horror Headlines: Friday May 1st, 2009

Cormac McCarthy's adaptation of his novel "The Road" gets a release date in October. Word is they're pushing for an Oscar, hence the pushback from last November. The film Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortenson, Guy Pearce, Robert Duvall and more star in "a post-apocalyptic tale of a man and his son trying to survive by any means possible".

John Harrison's adaptation of Clive Barker's "Book of Blood" is going to debut on the SyFy channel. Oh boy, that can't possibly be a good thing, can it? That's what he told a crowd at a convention this past weekend, as well as mentioning that September will probably be the target for the debut.

Todd McFarlane has 5 offers on the table to do a "Spawn" remake, but the caveat is that he wants to direct. We all know how the first "Spawn" movie turned out, what do you guys think?

Katie Cassidy joins the cast of "A Nightmare on Elm St.", the remake. I'm not familiar with her work but from the pictures I see online, I can confidently deduce that she's super hot. So, she's got that going for her.

Warner Bro's will be releasing the American remake of "Death Note", a property based on a Manga and made into a live-action film in Japan. Vertigo films will be producing.

In Real People News: 

Teen arrested after stealing tons of condoms from a CVS, not aware that he was being watched by a surveillance camera the entire time. If someone had just told him how douchey his mohawk was to begin with, he wouldn't have been under the false pretense that he was capable of getting laid in the first place (pic at the link).

It turns out the more often you go to go to church, the more likely you are to support torture. Hmm, ain't that something.

On this day in history: 

2003: Commander in Chief George W. Bush rides shotgun aboard a Navy S-3B Viking jet, lands on the USS Abraham Lincoln, marking the first time a president has boarded an aircraft carrier by plane. Underneath a large "Mission Accomplished." sign, he announces that major combat operations in Iraq have ended.
