The one-sheet for "Daybreakers", a futuristic vampire film starring Ethan Hawke, landed on MTV today. Very "Matrix"-like... interesting.
New stills from Vincenzo Natali's "Splice"... aka, "running with cats"? I'm just as confused as you are, but I know that this film looks prettye excellent. No word on US distribution yet but we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
Methinks if you're impersonating Michael Jackson and you have to use blackface, something's not quite right.
On this day in history:
A renowned thinker in the world of Physics things that God may be sabotaging the Super Hadron Collider from the future, so as to avoid all those pesky "end of the world" scenarios that the machine makes possible. The crazy part is, most of his colleagues respect him so much that they're not actually ruling it out.
Van Damme comes to horror? After his next action film he says he's all set to star in "Breed", about "a village where strange things happen". Boy does that guy have a way with words. I'm sure this will turn out just great.
It doesn't have a wacky title, but today's Indie shoutout goes to "A Mannequin in Static". Go check out the trailer at the site, comes recommended from me.
You can't help but feel at least a little sympathy for this North Caronlina woman who, faced with the huge medical bills of her 96 year old mother, decided the only thing she could do is abandon her at a Salvation Army. That is of course until you read on and find out that she immediately took a vacation to Disney World afterward. Kind of ruins the whole sympathy factor. Hope she enjoyed the rides.
1991: Cannibal killer Jeffrey Dahmer manages to convince Milwaukee police that the dazed naked boy found staggering on the sidewalk and bleeding from the ass is his drunken lover, instead of a 14-year-old boy struggling to fight the effects of date-rape drugs. The MPD officers chalk it up to a "homosexual lovers spat" and escort them both back to Dahmer's apartment. After the cops leave, Jeffrey strangles the boy, rapes his corpse, and eats some flesh from the carcass of his twelfth victim.
