WTF?!

Women Dies From Using Jackhammer As Sex Toy

I’m going to blame this one on Tim Allen and his creative skills for coming up with the phrase “more power”. On the show “Home Improvement”, Allen would insist that ever tool in his shed would work better if only it was given “more power”. Well unfortunately for Shirley Dent of Arndale Oklahoma this idea does not cross over well to her sex toys. Apparently your average run of the mill vibrator wasn’t good enough for her and she decided to kick things up a notch by using a jackhammer. Bad mistake.

Doctors Remove Twin Brother From Man's Stomach

I’ve made a lot of stupid mistakes in my life but I’d like to think that I could tell the difference between an in-grown hair and undeveloped identical twin embedded in my stomach. Then again I prey to god I never have the opportunity to make that mistake. Unfortunately for 30 year old Gavin Hyatt his doctors had just such an opportunity when he went into the hospital to have a strange growth on his abdomen removed.

The Seduction of Dr. Fugazzi (REVIEW)

A Troma release in name, something altogether different artistically, "The Seduction of Dr. Fugazzi" straddles the line between a number of different genres. On one hand the movie is a glorified resume for writer/director/producer/star October Kingsley. On the other hand it is an overblown art school film that traipses into the nonsensical and trippy realms of pretension. Despite all this, it still manages to hold yet another facet that transcends the eye rolling and confusion, helping it to become a movie that has a decent little plot twist and an okay story... In Hindsight.

"Necromentia" Trailer Creeps Me Out

Here's a tip to horror filmmakers out there, if you want me to post about your film, find a way to incorporate a "pig person" somehow. Sure it's been done by "SAW", but for the life of me I can't help but be creeped out whenever I see a person wearing a pig's head. It's just... NOT RIGHT.

Anyways, this is the trailer for "Necromentia", a truly bizarre looking film that's about to debut at the Cannes Film Festival. It's directed by Pearry Reginald Teo, and the synopsis looks like this:

The World Super Hero Registry

Slow news has brought to light a news story out of Cincinnati concerning a masked super hero stalking the streets! His name is The Shadowhare and he's hellbent on making Cinci safe once again. Cause you know... it was so rough before.

Ron Jeremy Stars In "One-Eyed Monster"

If you’re going to make a movie about a severed penis that goes around killing the cast and crew of a porn film there is pretty much only one person you can have as your leading man. Louis Fowler. Wait no, Ron Jeremy.

HHW Video: Corey Haim Rapping!

So, it took me a while (my deepest apologies, folks) but I've finally managed to sit down and hammer my way through the video from Horror Hound Weekend at the end of March.

There's still video from Friday night to go through, and an entire compilation from Saturday is completed and should be uploaded shortly. This is from that compilation, but it's so insanely awesome I felt I had to pull it out and give it its own video too.

Horror Headlines: Thursday April 16th, 2009

One of the stars of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles", Thomas Dekker has signed on to co-star in Platinum Dunes' "A Nightmare on Elm St." remake. A self described horror fan, Dekker will share on screen time with the other male lead, Kyle Gallner from "The Haunting in Connecticut".

New UK quad for Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell", revamped with lots of shiny new pull-quotes. Not sure I feel good about the biggest one being "Ain't It Cool News" (does anyone really read that site?), but it seems that the buzz is starting out good nonetheless. The film hits theaters May 29th.

New pic from "H2", showing Myers stabbing the crap out of someone in what appears to be a hospital. Zombie has said that only a brief portion of the film will take place in the hospital, and that it will not be a direct remake of 1981's "Halloween II".

I know we shouldn't encourage the guys over at Asylum, known for their terrible, awful little movies with blatantly ripped-off titles, but I just can't help it. Here's the teaser trailer for "The Terminators", which hits DVD April 28th.

"Wrong Turn 3" director Declan O'brien to remake "Little Shop of Horrors", with help from "Bourne" producer. Nope, not making that up. He also says he'll be "taking it in a different direction". Not sure what that means, but feel free to speculate wildly in the comments.

Patrick Tatopoulos to direct adaptation of the forthcoming comic book "I, Frankenstein". The story shows old school monsters who have evolved and are living in a modern film-noir setting.

In Real People News: 

Remember when your mom told you if you swallowed watermelon seeds they would grow in your stomach? Ya, that wasn't cool, but that's not the point of this story. A man in Russia had surgery recently to investigate his excruciating chest pain, Doctors find a Fir tree growing in his lungs. Source is complete with pictures!

Two Dominos employees are facing criminal charges after filming themselves messing with a customer's food and putting it on Youtube. A manager claims it was "just a prank" and "the food was never sent out". Mmm hmmm...

Want to feel old? The Columbine shootings happened 10 years ago today. The article at the link is a great read, claiming that most of what we've been told about the duo in the last decade is actually false.

On this day in history: 

1943: Chemist Albert Hofmann inadvertently experiences the world's first acid trip when a tiny quantity of lysergic acid diethylamide accidently seeps through the skin of his finger. After leaving work early, he went home and settled into "a not unpleasant intoxicated condition." Then he had solid two hours of visual hallucinations

Let's Play "Guess That Viral Video"

I was sent this viral video today, but since it's so rare that a company actually understands what a "viral" video is supposed to be, I figured I would play along and withhold what upcoming film it's from. Can you guess?

"Frankenhood" Coming To DVD May 5th

There was an episode of Saturday Night Live once where Will Farrell is doing his impression of James Lipton and makes the comment about the film "A Troll in Central Park",

"It is like looking into the face of God and seeing Him smiling back and saying, "You are my most wondrous creation."
