Horror Headlines: Thursday February 16th, 2011
Michael Stephenson, yes the "Troll 2" Michael Stephenson, will be producing and directing a new dark comedy titled "Destroy". The movie focuses on a man obsessed with hunting and destroying vampires even though they don't exist. Which is obviously fiction because vampires do exist and they have babies with normal people, which I think I might how the "Twilight" series ends. So, spoiler alert! Maybe.
A new clip from "Sharktopus" featuring commentary by Roger Corman has been released in honor of the films DVD release. Corman has a cameo as a beach bum who oogles a girl on the beach which is really how we all like our Corman. Either that way or with a side of cole slaw, I like that Corman too.
Mark Pellington, who I would be mocking for his music video directing work if he hadn't also directed "Arlington Road", says that the script for the English remake of "The Orphanage" is actually better than the original. He goes on to say that he's getting a little antsy to get this thing going and wants to close on a leading lady ASAP. Having never seen the original and not knowing much about the remake I'm going to confidently say the girl who played Six on "Blossom" would be perfect.
I can't think of one time Woody Harrelson has been wrong so when he talks about "Zombieland 2" and says he's "not sure it's the right thing to do." I believe him. I would also believe him if he told me that the sky is red and bleach is perfectly fine to drink too though, so maybe I'm not the best judge of people. In any case the future of the film is rocky at best but as of right now is moving forward.
Singing pornographic songs to kids is always funny, that's a fact that any college scholar will tell you. So I'm shocked and disturbed to find that a 21 year old man in Michigan is being brought up on charges of manufacturing child sexually abusive material after he posted a video on youtube of him singing a dirty song spliced with video of kids in a classroom. Even more troubling is that the video has been taken down.
A Massachusetts man is being forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after he threatened two men with a hatchet in a local Wal-Mart. Honestly though have you ever talked to a Boston sports fan? Two seconds of listening to any of them and I want to take a hatched to anyone within a 5 mile radius.
