Horror Headlines: Tuesday, April 17th, 2011
It looks like we are officially done bitching about the cold and have jumped right into complaining about the heat. Anyone who's ever said they don't want to move to an area with a warm climate because they'd "miss the seasons" should be punched in the throat.
I've always been a fan of the term "Heebie-Jeebies". It's just a lot of fun to say, hear, and read. Try it yourself. I'll wait. Fun, right? Trent Haaga on the other hand I could take or leave. He created the much discussed "Deadgirl" and has lined up a new film about a small town that comes under attack by a strange monster. The title is "Heebie-Jeebies". I kind of thought that was implied.
Hollywood hot dog (I don't know what that means) Ridley Scott has dropped the bomb that the version of "Prometheus" we will see and enjoy on June 8th will indeed be a director's cut and be edited from his original version. He then goes on to explain that this pretty much happens in every movie ever made and that it's not really a big deal. I'm sorry this is the worst news item I've ever posted.
Jared Harris, who plays the saucy Britt on "Mad Men" has been cast in the upcoming Hammer Horror flick "The Quiet Ones". Harris will play a professor who leads his students in a dangerous experiment trying to produce a poltergeist. Based on the title of the film I assume there are no spoken words. Should be exciting.
"Well, it's a possibility". That's what Bill Murray said in a recent interview when questioned about "Ghostbusters 3". Move along now.
Leaving your child in the car so you can go into a bar and apply for a job is pretty bad but I think people can sort of understand if you're looking to support the little toddler. Staying after you apply to do shots though, people are going to be kind of pricks about that whole thing.
Headless chickens in Central Park? Possibly a voodoo ritual? If they're making "The Serpent and the Rainbow" into a musical I'm moving out of the tri-state area.
