Horror Headlines 3/31/08

Mark's stuck in Chicago, Casey's broken, Jon is still fancy and I somehow have a hangover even though I haven't had a drink in 36 hours... but we're still in one piece after Horror Hound Weekend. If Mark can make it back to New York some time soon, we should be able to get on with our browser testing this week so the site will be viewable in Internet explorer. Till then, don't forget to scroll down and check out our new blog section, where you can currently see all kinds of pictures and thoughts from Horror Hound Weekend. Finally, if you've come over from the old site, don't forget that you have to REREGISTER. Sorry for the inconvenience, looking forward to seeing you around.

Here's the first teaser poster for "The X-Files 2". Sorry for missing out on this on Friday. Thanks to site member AmazonAgent for the heads up.

The dude who played "Bubba" in "Forest Gump" has been cast in "Final Destination 4". Please GOD let his death involve shrimp.

BD has announced this morning that Derek Mears is in final talks to star as Jason Voorhees in Platinum Dunes remake of "Friday the 13th, being directed by TCM remake helmer Marcus Nispel. Mear's credits include both "Cursed" and "The Hills Have Eyes" remake. Based on the shot at the link, he may not need any makeup to play the deformed killer. The deal is not official but at this point it seems only a matter of time before everything is ironed out.

In Real People News: 

I have to say that the paranoia over hallucinagenic substances is generally pretty overblown. That said, sometimes it will make someone freak out, think his friend is a narcotics officer, and beat him about the face with a glass bong. When the bong broke, the dude took the glass shards and started to slash at his friend. Man, that's one impressive buzz-kill.

Another day, another botched Exorcism... this time in Texas. I see George W's intelligence level runs rampant in the lone star state.

And finally today, in a story we can all get behind... Danish women have won the right to swim topless. With all that's wrong in this world, it's nice to know that some people still have a head on their shoulders (and boobies in their faces!).

On this day in history: 

1991: Danny Bonaduce arrested for assault after he fought with a transvestite prostitute. No contest, 750 hours community service.
