Horror Headlines: Monday July 11th, 2011

All of us here at the BGH offices are just tickled pink that
"Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil" is finally getting released on VOD next month and we hope you get just as misty as we did when you see the new poster that's hit the tubes. The film, which follows two mountain men who end up being mistaken for a couple of murderers has been doing the convention circuit for some time now but didn't get picked up with a release date until recently. On a side note I would really appreciate it if the prick who keeps finishing the coffee and not making a new pot would cut the crap.

Holy crap has it already been 20 years since I rented "Subspecies" because it had a half naked woman on the cover? Time really flies doesn't it. Well now I can relive the disappointment of the movie not being soft core porn all over again because the good people at Full Moon Entertainment are giving the "classic" vampire flick a Blu-Ray release on July 25th. Unfortunately the only special feature on the disc will be the original "Video Zone" that appeared on the VHS for the movie but those were pretty fun. I wonder if any of those "Puppet Master" action figures are still for sale.

"Wake Wood" director David Keating is lined up to direct "The Cherry Tree" as his next spooky outing. The movie follows a 16 year old girl who chooses to have Satan's baby in order to save the life of her father. A choice facing many of our nation's youth today. I'm pretty sure MTV has a reality show based on it.

Ving Rhames has landed a role in the zombie apocalypse movie titled "A Zombie Apocalypse". Clever, I know. He's joined by Lesley-Ann Brandt, Gary Weeks, Johnny Pacer and Taryn Manning, who also happens to be in my top 5 all time favorite film hookers. A list coveted by actresses around the globe. The flick is currently filming in LA and is expected to be released later this year on DVD.

In Real People News: 

A North Dakota man went a little overboard with his celebration of freedom this past 4th of July and accidentally blew his own head off when the fireworks display he set off in his front yard got a little out of hand. Police are still unsure how the mishap happened but I've officially decided this is how I want to go out... For freedom.

I like this guy's style. A Florida man is under arrested after he planted black widow eggs in his ex-girlfriends mailbox. Now see, that's commitment. Most guys would just toss a couple live spiders in there but this guy was in it for the long haul. Good for you my crazy ass friend. Good for you.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday May 3rd, 2011

Katrina Bowden from "30 Rock" and "Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil" is the latest hot chick to be added to the cast of "Piranha 3DD". As we all know Gary Busey was also added to the cast last week and while it hasn't been confirmed I think it's pretty obvious that we now know who will be involved in the movie's love story. I'd like to think the chemistry will find it's way off screen as well and we'll have Hollywood's next power couple.

"Cobra the Space Pirate" is some sort of Japanese animated series that I'm sure someone I went to college with told me was "completely insane" while I didn't get any action at a party, and for that reason alone I now hate it. But alas there's a movie being made about it and today we've got our first look at the poster for the flick. If it gets you excited you're only a little over 2 years away from it's summer 2012 release.

If you're anxiously awaiting the release of "Haunted 3D" then you're one step ahead of me because I've never heard of the damn thing until 10 minutes ago. But that doesn't matter because a handful of theaters will be showing India's first 3D flick this coming weekend. Of course none of the selected theaters are in major cities so you big wigs can suck it. Jersey's got 2 of the 8 selected locations!

Starting today you can get your grubby mits on "Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation - Call of the Dead" via Xbox Live and to celebrate a new poster has hit the tubes for the game. In the Black Ops add on you can actually play as Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Michael Rooker and Sarah Michelle Gellar and none other than George A. Romero is featured in the game as a zombie. Which is exciting because there's numerous movies I'd love to shoot him in the face for. Score!

In Real People News: 

A Florida man is being charged with assault after he beat the tar out of his neighbor with a baseball bat because they wouldn't turn down their music. While I can't condone the assault I have to say I had a neighbor once who could play Lisa Loeb at levels that by law shouldn't be allowed and I would have loved to have had a few cracks at him.

A young man in New Mexico made the mistake of shoving the prescription drugs he stole from a neighbor up his no-no hole and was found by police officers bleeding and disoriented. An x-ray later revealed the drugs and I assume the whole thing looked like the scene in "Total Recall" when they walk behind the giant body x-ray. But a lot sexier of course.

Horror at Sundance: "Tucker & Dale vs Evil"

Tucker (Alan Tudyk, "Firefly", "Dollhouse") and Dale (Tyler Labine, "Reaper") are a couple of good 'ole boys spending the weekend with a few cold beers at their fixer-upper cabin in the woods. Camping nearby is a group of good-looking college kids who begin to believe that Tucker and Dale are a couple of horror movie cliche killer rednecks. The grits hit the fan and Tucker and Dale can't figure out why these preppy kids keep coming on their property to commit gory suicide. "Tucker & Dale vs Evil" could do for hillbilly slasher movies what "Shaun of the Dead" did for zombie movies.
