Horror Headlines: Thursday October 22, 2009

Director Tim Sullivan has had a busy news day. Not only has he announced that the sequel to his "2001 Maniacs" remake has the new title of "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams", he has also released three new pictures from the movie. The most important items of note is that Robert Englund has been replaced by Bill Mosely, and Christa Campbell in a milkmaid costume.

In quite possibly the oddest news of the day, The Weather Channel has announced it will be adding movies to its channel lineup. Starting out with a showing of "A Perfect Storm" on Oct. 30th, the lineup shows that it will be a weekly string of weather themed movies. Most notable to us horror fans is Stephen King's "Misery", because of the snow.

From the unexpected and unwanted reboot desk comes word that a script for a new "Crow" movie has been turned in and the studios dig it. Written by Stepehn Norrington who helmed "Blade", the movie is said to not be a remake but a whole new character.

Dread Central has posted a slew of new "Stan Helsing" clips, and I still remain unexcited!

In Real People News: 

An alternative Denver newspaper is hiring a new reviewer. In particular, they're looking for a writer to review the state marijuana dispenseries and their products. Good luck getting them to meet deadlines.

The King lives on through expensive hair. Elvis' hair, chopped from his head upon his enlistment to the US Army, fetches $15k from a recent auction. Someday, the hair that's quickly making its exit from my own scalp will make me rich.

On this day in history: 

1836 – Sam Houston is inaugurated as the first President of the Republic of Texas.

Trailer For "The Wolf Man" Hits The Web

We’re still six months away from seeing Benicio Del Toro running around the screen in “The Wolf Man” but today the trailer has hit the web. The film is an update on the 1966 Lon Chaney Jr. classic and from the looks of things will do the original justice.

Little birdies are telling me that the trailer for "The Wolfman" will be hitting the internet today. However since I get up at the crack of dawn like an old man, it's not up yet. Check back for updates???

ABC is at the top of the heap when it comes to picking up "Clive Barker's Hotel", the series being written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. It also turns out that McG's production company is in talks to produce, with the possibility that old G might take a hand at directing down the line.

A movie that doesn't exist yet, "Resident Evil: Afterlife", has a release date set for August 27th, 2010. That's a little more than a year away.

Say what you will about the people behind "Saw", they they sure know how to make awesome posters.

In Real People News: 

There have been three deaths at Disney World in the last seven weeks. I always knew that place was made of pure evil.

Viking religious ceremony scares the crap out of residents in local park. I'd be scared too if that many giant gingery people were gathered in the same place all at once. They can only be up to no good.

On this day in history: 

1191: Crusaders massacre 3,000 bound Muslim prisoners at Acre, after a breakdown in negotiations over payment of their ransom. The killings take place in full view of the army from which they were taken.

So last week, I made the suggestion that I was Santana and BGH was Rob Thomas. This was met with derision, of course. I did enjoy the suggestion of me being Michael McDonald and BGH being James Ingram, but, of course, most of you have no idea who either of those guys are because they aren't on Roadrunner. OK, so let's try this: I am Jimmy Buffett and BGH are a large group of middle-aged yuppies who come to my concert to forget their workaday lives of strife. Fins to the left, gang!

Because we did it so well the first time, it looks like Legendary Pictures are in talks to bring back an Americanized version of “Godzilla”. While this news is quite maddening, what's really aggravating is how every movie news outlet that has picked up the story has used the headline “GODZILLA ROARS AGAIN!”. Seriously, guys? Maybe I expect too much for a guy with the moniker of “Mr. Disgusting”.

So, if the “Godzilla” news didn't screw up your morning, well, here you go: MGM has put the remake of “Poltergeist” on the fast track. Here's to hoping that the new Carol Anne lives to be 13!

Even though the movie won't be ready for another 37 years, Universal has released some new stills for The Wolfman. Is it just me or does Benicio Del Toro look like a cross between an almost transformed werewolf and Jet Li?

Is it weird that I've jerked-off to this video twice now?

In Real People News: 

A South Korean biotechnology firm is opening a “dog cloning center”. Suspiciously, the center is named “Super Happy #1 Buffet”, so I am suspicious of their intentions...

Remember that Will Smith song “Miami”? That was a great song. You know, now that I think about it, the whole “Big Willie Style” album was pretty good. Either way, some chick in Miami set herself on fire and continue to mosey through a mall. I guess you could say she was “Gettin' Flammable Wit' It!” Na,na, na, na, na, na!

According to a survey, the Dutch prefer a good dump to having sex. Here in America, we like both so we invented the blumpkin! GO USA #1 LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT THESE COLORS DON'T RUN!!!

On this day in history: 

In 1908, the first beauty contest was held in Folkestone, England. Of course, being England, there were no winners. AW SNAP OH NO I DID NOT GO THERE OH I DID GIRLFRIEND!

Horror Headlines: Tuesday March 7th, 2009

The poster for Richard Kelly's "The Box" (link fixed) features a big, terrifying picture of... Cameron Diaz's face. Yikes.

The remake of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" is on hold while they see how "The Wolfman" remake does. The creature design is already done, and at this point they're just waiting for the go-ahead from the studio.

Radha Mitchell seems genuinely upset in this interview that although a sequel to "Silent Hill 2" is in development, the original director probably won't return. Which leads me to believe she never actually saw the original film, which was a steaming pile of the highest order.

If you're interested, there's two new "H2" videos floating around this morning. You know, in case you really wanted to hear an interview with a 19 year old girl about a sequel to a remake to a film that she had probably never seen or heard of before signing on to star in it. Who wouldn't want to do that?

Fangoria is holding a massive movie prop auction that you can actually watch and participate in online. Fancy that!

In Real People News: 

That truck driver who just cut you off on the highway? You might not want to fuck with him, because the FBI thinks there's a good chance he might be a serial killer. Not sure why it took them this long to come to that conclusion, but at least it's confirmed my irrational fear of truck drivers.

Remember when you saw that gang of roving kids in "Hostel" films and thought, "bullshit"? Ya, maybe Eli Roth is smarter than we thought.

Boy found dead in industrial sized oven, burnt to a crisp. Police could not confirm or deny reports that they were looking for a 6-inch tall Gingerbread man who sounds like Gary Busey.

There aren't adequate words to describe the sheer stupidity of the "Twilight" religion, so I'm not even going to try.

1970: The X-rated movie Midnight Cowboy wins the Oscar for Best Picture.

This time tomorrow I'll be on a plane bound for Indianapolis and Horror Hound Weekend. We will have updates for the site, but I'm just not entirely sure when they'll go live. So be sure to check back all day, and if you're headed out to the convention as well, see you there!

Fred Durst to direct horror film from the writer of "Se7en" and "The Wolfman". Yup, THAT Fred Durst. Guess he's taking a break from shitty music for a bit to make some shitty movies. Can't sneeze at that writer's cred though I guess. Then again... FRED DURST.

Bigfoot contracts rabies in "The Bloody Rage of Bigfoot". Isn't it amazing how sometimes the best ideas are the simplest?

Prepare for your mind to be blown. Universal has nabbed the rights to the comic book "The Strange Adventures of HP Lovecraft", and Ron Howard's producing. With Lovecraft's popularity surging in recent years thanks to the internet, I figured it was only a matter of time until he found his way into a mainstream movie, but Ron Howard? No director has been announced yet, but the speculation is that Howard will take it himself. Whoa.

Cameras roll next week on a remake of 1975's "The Land That Time Forgot", directed by C. Thomas Howell. I know it seems like I'm just pulling these names out of my ass today, but I swear I'm telling the truth!

In Real People News: 

Japanese man confirmed to have survived BOTH the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs that ended WWII. First he was on business in Hiroshima, then he returned home to Nagasaki just in time to get slammed again. Remember that next time you think you're having bad luck.

The "PMS Reminder" app for the iPhone sends you a handy email once a month to remind you to watch your P's and Q's. I would just bury the icon a few pages in... don't want the fiance stumbling on that one.

I think we can all agree that we hated the "rich kids" when we were younger... but I kind of like this one, who drew a ginormous 60 foot penis on top of his parents house, visible from the air. Gotta admire that kid's moxy. The best part? It was months before his parents found out. (now with 100% more linkage)

On this day in history: 

1830: Joseph Smith publishes The Book of Mormon, after translating it from golden plates turned over by the angel Moroni. Smith maintained that the text contained in the tablets were written in "Reformed Egyptian" which he read by means of two magic stones from the Old Testament, the Urim and Thummim.
