Horror Headlines: Friday April 24th, 2009
Apparently I'm the only one in the horror community who doesn't think it's worth it to post a bootleg trailer of "Halloween 2". And when I say "bootleg", what I mean is a shitty cam'd version from a theater, shot by someone who is apparently in the last seat in the back/right of the establishment. I know, it's very exciting. If you have patience, the actual "H2" trailer will be showing up on Yahoo! Movies today, stay tuned here for a link when it's live.
Rumor has it that Richard Dreyfuss will make a cameo in "Piranha 3D", and will be "paying homage to jaws, even drinking Amity brand beer". Very subtle, guys.
Debbie Rochon stars in "Stopped Dead", about a group of friends vacationing in an RV who end up in a "race with death" against a homicidal biker gang. Good times.
Robert Rodriguez was announcing future projects yesterday, and mixed in with the voluminous list was a reboot of the "Predator" franchise. Granted, FOX is still involved because they're the rights holders, but I personally would love to see what Rodriguez can do with that story.
"The Crazies gets pushed back to a February, 2010 release. The Romero remake was previously scheduled to be released September 25th of this year.
Steve Niles has his script ready for a "30 Days of Night" sequel. Since the first one wasn't a smash success, Sam Raimi (in his role as head of Ghosthouse pictures, the label that released the film) has convinced Niles that direct to DVD is the way to go, so that's how the film will be released.
The "Baby Shaking Game" has been taken out of the iPhone App store. Of course, just when I finally have the high score at something, they go and take it away from me.
Man opens up door of charter plane and jumps from 23,000 feet, without a parachute. Authorities are still "looking for him". I'm no physics professor, but after falling from that high in the air I'm guessing they're going to have trouble finding anything bigger than tooth.
1967: Cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov becomes the world's first space mission fatality after his Soyuz parachutes become entangled four miles above the Earth.
