Horror Headlines: Thursday March 4th, 2010
If you're planning to attend the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival this year, you should definitely check out the the so-called "First Look" screening of the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed action flick "Predators", a film I'm still on the proverbial fence about. Topher Grace and Adrien Brody? Really?
Speaking of Adrien Brody, talented direct Vincenzo Natali's highly-anticipated monster movie "Splice" is set to terrify audiences on June 4th. It's always nice to have a potentially nifty horror flick scheduled for a summer release.
Although I have my doubts as to whether or not this project will ever get off the ground, it would appear that Todd McFarlane is still spreading rumors that another "Spawn" film is in the works. I'm excited about the idea as much as the next nerd, but I'm not going to hold my breath. No sense setting myself up for soul-crushing disappointment.
I know I'm supposed to write something extremely witty and marginally hilarious for these articles, but the headline provided for this seemingly innocent story about a drunk driver's encounter with law enforcement officials is funny enough on its own. Trust me on this one.
Although I've seen some incredibly strange things in my lifetime, I've never accidentally stumbled across a naked woman tied to a tree. My life suddenly feels inadequate, and I am ashamed of myself. I think I need to get out more.
