Horror Headlines: Monday February 14th, 2011
Carlos Fresnadillo, the guy who brought you "28 Weeks Later", my second favorite of all the "amount of time later" films, is now the latest name being bounced around to direct the on again off again "The Crow" reboot. Eric Draven is also being rumored to take the lead role but since nothing is confirmed I'd like to announce that I am officially the front runner to take the role.
A few years back I got all excited when I found a "Night of the Living Dead" remake done in 3D staring Sid Haid in Target. I bought it, brought it home and watched a big giant disappointing turd, in 3D. Well they made a sequel titled "Night of the Living Dead 3D: Resurrection" and Andrew Divoff has been confirmed as playing the lead in the film. Learn from my mistakes people.
Not going to lie, I thought "11-11-11" was the dumbest name for a movie ever but now there's a teaser for the film, which has yet to be completed, and it looks pretty damn creepy. It's also got giant shrubs trimmed into cool shapes and I'm a sucker for clever landscaping. I've never hidden that fact.
Get ready kids because March 5th "Re-Animator the Musical" hits Los Angeles. Not some crappy art student knock off either, Stuart Gordon is producing and directing the stage version and what's better is the theater has a splash zone. I assume that means blood might be flying and not that there's a dolphin show going on. Maybe a bloody dolphin show, that would be awesome. PETA would throw a fit though.
A 48 year old window washer in Florida is being brought up on charges after a woman caught him manhandling himself while doing his "job". Apparently the best thing he could come up with to say was "I'm almost done", which honestly could have meant a number of things at that point.
Germans, they're freakin nuts! They've got a cross eyed possum named Heidi that apparently can predict the Oscars. Of course the possum is going to be on "Jimmy Kimmel Show" so if you think about it there's a German cross eyed possum out there with a better life than most of us. Have fun crying yourself to sleep.
