Horror Headlines: Monday June 8th, 2009
It's Eric here, back on the news beat after taking a few days off. My apologies if I end up covering a story that Casey did last week... but if I do, you'll just have to deal with it. That's called "character building", folks.
"Night of the Dead Reanimated" holds a "video art gallery" featuring some of the artists in their rendition of the Romero classic. That actually sounds like a great idea.
Yvonne Strahovski from "Chuck" to star in survivalist horror film called "The Canyon". The plot deals with a couple honeymooning in the Grand Canyon, who end up just trying to survive after meeting a "charismatic and mysterious guide".
Word from Robert Rodriguez's camp is that "Predators" will be a sequel and not a remake. There are also rumblings that they're trying to get Arnold Schwarzenegger back in some type of extended cameo, but we'll see how that turns out.
Not sure this is good news, but "Saw VI" director Kevin Gruetert calls his post production experience "mind numbingly complex". Ya, this should be interesting.
Before being released on DVD in October, Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will be doing a festival run, where you might be able to check it out if you live in one of the corresponding areas.
Either David Carradine died from some type of auto-erotic asphyxiation, or the most complicated game of Cat's Cradle ever conceived. You be the judge.
Teacher reprimanded for playing clips from "Beavis and Butthead" in his classroom. For their part, the kids had no idea what they were watching anyway, and muttered something about the "old man cartoons".
A dead body sitting in a car racked up parking tickets for weeks claim police, until a tow-truck driver finally realized what was going on.
1986: Former UN Secretary General and Nazi war criminal Kurt Waldheim is elected president of Austria. One year later, the U.S. Justice Department places him on a watch list of undesirable aliens, making Waldheim the first foreign head of state legally forbidden from visiting America.
