Horror Headlines 4/7/08

I just have one question for you on this Monday morning... how is it that the comic book "Mr. T Vs. Dracula" hasn't been made into a movie yet? I'll tell you why, because there's no justice in the universe.

On Friday we told you about an Indie anthology film called "Pranks", in which each segment is being directed by scream queens Heather Langenkamp, Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris respectively. Well if you visit the producers Myspace today, He has posted a bunch of pictures from Danielle Harris' segment of the film. Check them at the link.

Jensen Ackles ("Dark Angel", "Supernatural") has been tapped to star in Lions Gates' "My Bloody Valentine: 3D". His character will be "A handsome, principled man who returns to his home in Harmony, Mo., 10 years after 22 people were murdered on Valentine's night. Back in Montana, Tom finds he still is smitten with his first love, Sarah (Jaime King)." Considering that almost every role Ackles takes could be described in some way as "heart-throbby", this can't be good news for this remake.

Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, directors of the amazing French film "Inside", are officially off the "Hellraiser" remake. Wow, it didn't even make it to production before the producers started to screw the foreign talent. This is becoming an alarmingly prevalent trend. In the meantime, check out the TV trailer for "Inside", on DVD April 15th!
