"Plus One" is the latest film from "The Last House On the Left" director Dennis Iliadis and it looks like the folks over at IFC have slapped it with a September 20th release date. The film is about three college students who go to a big old party and find all kinds of spooky crap going down there. And I'm not just talkin about the drunkin goth chicks from Alpha Omega Pi! Am I right fellas? High five! Oh god I wish I hadn't gone to an art school.
Joseph Kosinski, the handsome gentlemen who directed "Oblivion" is apparently the latest name to be tossed out for the upcoming "The Twilight Zone" directing spot. No word on when filming would start, who the writer will be or if Kosinski will back out like a gaggle of others already have so I for one am stilling holding out that I will be offered the job. I did take a intro to film course in college and if I remember right I got a B+. Call me.
More and more cool ass crap keeps coming out about Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights and now there's word of a haunted attraction based on the classic flick "An American Werewolf in London". This would be exciting news even if it wasn't a spooky time attraction. You know how I love fish and chips don't you. You don't? Well I do and I'm a little upset that I've been writing the news for over three years now and you don't really seem to know a thing about me. My eyes are up here buddy!
"Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D" is still apparently a thing and it looks like R. Madhavan has officially been added to the cast. The film is a retelling of the classic zombie flick with a new setting, the city so nice they named it twice, New York, New York. You might know R. Madhavan from his numerous Bollywood films or if you're like me and completely ignorant you might know him from absolutely nothing at all.
In Real People News:
Canadian police rescued 20 pythons being held in plastic crates in a hotel room recently. 1, I had no idea there were police in Canada. 2, that hotel should be burned to the ground because snakes are awful creatures that don't belong on this planet. And 3, the ashes of that hotel should be burned again because ghost snakes are a real thing and must be stopped.
The daughter of the last king of Romania is being brought up on charges for allegedly leading a cockfighting ring in Oregon. Wait... what?
With so many people signing on to the zombie apocalypse film "World War Z" it's kind of nice to see Ed Harris and Matthew Fox both backing out of their roles in the movie. Ya know, cause seeing other people's misery makes me feel better about myself. Fox's departure is due to a scheduling conflict and as of now the reason Harris is out is uncertain but I bet it's because everyone on the set kept asking him what it was like to play Robocop. Till the day I die I will insist that was him.
Today we get a look at the first still to come from season 6 of "Dexter" which is currently filming down in Miami. In it you'll see Dexter doing some of his crime type work and looking all technical up in this piece. Plus he's holding something weird in a bag which I guess is some sort of spoiler but honestly I have no idea how. Good post, huh? I'm awesome at stuff.
Rod Serling, the guys who brought us "The Twilight Zone" along with countless other classics looks to be next in line to get the biopic treatment. Details are slim right now but Sterling's widow, Carol Serling, will be a producer on the film and "Wall Street" co-writer Stanley Weiser will pen the script. Pray they do it justice because the only thing more frightening then a group of angry nerds is a group of angry old nerds.
I am happy to report that the upcoming Daniel Craig flick "Dream House" has been slapped with an R rating by the MPAA. The movie focuses on a family that moves into a home only to discovers it was the setting for a brutal murder. I assume there's some sort of spooky happenings that take place shortly after the big move and hats off to the filmmakers for sacking up and throwing in some blood and maybe even some boobs. Keep your fingers crossed.

I usually avoid public pools because they are full of urine but here's another reason. A Massachusetts women was apparently floating dead in a local pool for 3 days before anyone noticed she was there. 3 days. Kids were probably playing on her, families were using her as some sort of floating coffee table and god only knows what was coming out of her during all this. I need to go shower in bleach.
And lastly in an ironic twist of fate, "To Catch a Predator" host Chris Hansen looks to have been caught cheating on his wife by way of a hidden camera sting, much like the ones he helped to set up on his show. Finally some vindication for all those creepy guys trying to pick up 12 years over the internet. Good for them.
