Horror Headlines: Tuesday August 4th, 2009

"Phobos" is a Russian horror film about a group of partygoers who attend a dangerous shindig inside an abandoned old bomb shelter. You can pretty much figure out what happens next.

The final poster for "Pandorum" is freakin' sweet, and pretty trippy. The film goes wide September 18th.

Carla Gugino joins the cast of Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch". The film follows a young girl in a mental institution in the 1950's who has five days before she's given a lobotomy, so her and her friends enter an alternate reality where they begin planning an escape.

In Real People News: 

Man fends off would-be robber wearing gorilla suit. Seems oddly appropriate the week we review "Shriek of the Mutilated" on the podcast, no?

This news just made my week... Jesse Ventura is getting his own conspiracy theory show on TruTV. Break out the tin foil hats, yall!

Scientists have created virtual reality for flies. And I still don't have my "Lawnmower Man" program... what gives?

On this day in history: 

1892: Someone takes an axe and kills Lizzie Borden's millionaire parents. Andrew receives 10 whacks, and Abby 14. Lizzie is later tried for the murders, but acquitted.

Jamie Chung and Jena Malone sign on to Zack Snyder's ("300", "Watchmen") next film "Sucker Punch". The film is set in the 50's, and follows a young woman unfairly thrown into a mental institution by her "wicked step-father", who imagines an alternate reality to hide from the pain. She then plans to escape the imaginary world, but has to steal five objects first, all while avoiding being caught by "a vile man". Whoa, I have no idea what that means but it sounds awesome.

Dimension films picks up "Kristy". The film is being compared to "The Strangers" and "Last House on the Left", and deals with a deserted college campus being besieged by a group of violent intruders.

Finally, after months of hearing about mundane, meaningless scoops from the set of Rob Zombie's "H2", comes word that we'll be seeing a trailer on Youtube this Friday. Rest assured we'll be on it when it lands.

Jonathan Skaech is highly positive about his "From a Buick 8" script, and says that Stephen King (the original author of the book) loves it. Unfortunately because of the economy, financing any film is difficult right now, but he hopes that it will go in front of cameras this fall. As for stars? He claims they "are going after big names right now". Hopefully we'll hear some more news about this adaptation soon.

In Real People News: 

Ahhh, nothing like the smell of freedom in Baghdad... unless of course you're a gay man, then I would prepare to have your butthole glued shut and diarrhea induced, probably killing you in the process. Well now, isn't that special.

Teenager in Arizona was so surprised to find a cop inside the car he was trying to steal recently, that he shat his pants. No idea why today's stories are so scatological, but I guess I'm just going to go with it.

Husband shoots wife in the head, kills himself... she gets up afterward, disoriented, and makes herself a cup of tea. The woman is alive and in stable condition, despite the fact that the bullet went straight through her brain and out the back of her head. Doctors are baffled.

On this day in history: 

1915: The German Army opens 5,700 canisters of chlorine gas upwind of French soldiers at Ypres. It is the first use of poison gas for military purposes.
