Horror Headlines: Monday, February 13th, 2012
Hey did you watch The Grammy's last night? I didn't But I did take time to view some of the red carpet fashions and if you're wondering these are my scores. B+, C, D-, B-, C, C, F, and F. Yeah I know, I hate Adele too. Especially after reading her tour rider which stated "North American beer is not acceptable". Apparently she only accepts the "best quality European lager beers" like Stella and Peroni to wash her bite size Twix bars down her giant gullet. More for me, Adele! More for me!
Just to confirm a discussion we never had, Ridley Scott has been confirmed to be taking the directing role for "The Counselor". Written by Cormac McCarthy, the film follows a respected lawyer who tries his hand at the drug game... with sexy results. Wait no, terrible, not sexy. Not sexy at all.
If you're looking for more "The Evil Dead" casting news then this is going to be the best Monday of your life. Looks like Lou Taylor Pucci, who I don't know but only hate 1/3 of his name, is in talks to join the reboot. Lou would play a young smarty pants who's curiosity gets the gang into trouble. Whatever the hell that means. Pucci is the part of the name I hate in case you're wondering.
Looks like Universal is circling first time director Gary Shore to take on their new film "Dracula Year Zero". Russell Crowe is in talks to star in the film that tells the original story of Vlad the Impaler and how he eventually was turned into the character that Bram Stoker based is classic character on. Not really fair to pick a first time director. How am I suppose to make stupid comments about a guy I don't know? I bet he wears stupid hats.
Remember 2009's "Legion" about an Angel who comes down from the heavens to save the world? Well Syfy is working on a show based on the film. Cause ya know, everyone loved it. Alright I loved it. I can't even be sarcastic about how much I love it. An old lady swears a lot. How can you not love that?
I know I write that these stories make me laugh a lot but this one really did make me laugh out loud. A Kentucky mother punched her 10 year old son in the face during an anger management session. Try to read that without chuckling. It's impossible.
This story about a 40 year old in Ohio who tossed his kid into a dryer as punishment isn't as funny though. Unless you're a real sicko. Then feel free to laugh away in hell.
