Horror Headlines 2/28/08

Kevin Tenney, writer/director of the original "Night of the Demons", is reportedly working on href="http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news/topnews.php?id=4965"
target="_blank">a remake of his 80's classic. It will
still focus on the character of "Angela" becoming possessed at a party, but will obviously be updated for modern times. As long as it features Linnea Quigley shoving a tube of lipstick inside her breast, I'll buy a ticket on opening night.

I suppose if you're going to remake a Roger Corman film, you might as well not take yourself too seriously. Find a href="http://joblo.com/arrow/index.php?id=11244" target="_blank">still and poster for the low budget remake of "Attack of the Giant Leeches" at the link.

USA Today has href="http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/news/2008-02-26-the-box-main_N
.htm" target="_blank">a great interview today with Writer/Director Richard Kelly ("Donnie Darko") where they discuss his career up to this point, as well a new still from his new film "The Box", actually featuring lead actors Cameron Diaz and James Marseden. The film, based
on the Richard Matheson novel, concerns a couple who recieve a box they're told contains a button that if pressed will give them 1 million dollars. The catch? If they press it, someone they DON'T know will die. Wait, what's wrong with that? Where do I press? (Gallery at BD)

"Jeepers Creepers 3" href="http://www.fangoria.com/news_article.php?id=6017"
target="_blank">is apparently full bore into the planning stages, now that the strike is over. At the link, you can hear lots of quotes from Victor Salva trying to convince himself that this is the film people have been waiting for. Apparently, he's also holding out for a theatrical release. If he gets what he wants, I nominate Casey to review it... I can't take another one of those films.

Personally, now that I'm finally seeing some TV spots for "Shutter", it's giving off an incredibly strong vibe of "been there, done that". Now, we have href="http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/11404" target="_blank">two clips from the film, so you can judge for yourself. This Thai remake starring Joshua Jackson hits theaters next month.

In Real People News: 

Some stuffy British professor href="http://www.news.com.au/perthnow/story/0,21598,23284474-5005361,00.
html" target="_blank">thinks we're not that far off from "Terminator" style autonomous robots on the battlefield. He may not necessarily be an authority on the position, but that's still enough to convince me it's time to hide under my couch.

You can now add "suicide" to the list of things that href="http://www.1010wins.com/Accountant-Found-Dead-of-Suicide-in-B-klyn
-Hotel/1722187" target="_blank">duct tape can help you accomplish. I'm guessing that one won't be showing up on the packaging any time soon.

On this day in history: 

1993: ATF agents storm the compound of David Koresh and the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas. The resulting fire kills everyone inside, and the incident would become known as one of thebiggest blunders in US Law Enforcement history.
