Horror Headlines: Thursday July 15th, 2010

Fans of director Adam Green have reason to be extra happy this morning. Anchor Bay has announced that they will release the ski slope shocker "Frozen" on DVD and Blu-ray this September. Although the premise sounds a little goofy, the film looks absolutely fantastic. Personally, I can't wait.

IFC will unleash director Stuart Hazeldine's psychological thriller "Exam" to VOD on July 23rd. The film in question looks like a peculiar mix of "Saw" and "Cube", with a bit of David Fincher thrown in for good measure. However, depending on who you are, this might not be a recipe for delicious cinematic success.

In order to get misshapen butts into theater seats, Dimension is promoting Piranha 3D with a series of posters featuring the several scantily-clad women on a boat. Isn't this supposed to be a horror movie? I know genre fans are unnaturally obsessed with naked women, but this just sad. And people wonder why I'm not overly excited about this one.

In Real People News: 

If you need another excuse not to run with the bulls, behold the poor bastard who had his groin savaged by a large, angry animal with murder on its tiny mind. Although it pains me greatly to say it, but the guy had it coming. When you put yourself in these situations, you have to expect a little testicular carnage.

I always knew that the freakshows who play games all day on Facebook are seriously deranged. After all, hosing the blood of maladjusted teenagers off the sidewalk isn't too far removed from "Cafe World".

On this day in history: 

1974 - Florida newscaster Chris Chubbuck committs suicide on live television.



Todd has been a slave to the horror genre for as long as he can remember. After cutting his teeth on late-night Cinemax schlock and the low-budget offerings found on the classic USA program "Up All Night," our hero moved valiantly into the world of sleazy obscura, consuming the oddest films from around the world with the reckless abandon of a man without fear or reason. When he isn't sitting mindlessly in front of a television set, he can be found stuffing music, video games, and various literary scribblings into his already cluttered mindscape.
