Horror Headlines: Monday, July 23rd, 2012
Edward Furlong and Christian Slater finally in a movie together? Sign me up! Alright this may have happened before, I just can't remember. But this time it's called "The Awakened" and is about a young woman who returns to her home town to find her mother's killer. Apparently there's some sort of Jekyll & Hyde tie in also. Who cares though. Furter! Or Slatlong. I don't know, we'll work on it.
If there's one complaint I get about my news it's that there's not enough coverage of what's going on over at the Lifetime network. Well today is your lucky day bed burners because the good lady folk over there have decided to move forward with a new series based on Melissa de la Cruz's novel "The Witches of East End". For those of you who have never had your monthly visitor the story focuses on a mother and her two daughters who just so happen to be next in the long line of witches. Queue Sarah McLachlan.
Looks like Jackie Earle Haley is the latest name to be added to the cast of the upcoming "Robocop" remake. Rumor has it that Haley will be playing the role of Maddox, the main man who trains Robocop with his new skills. I can't even think of something stupid to say here. This seems like a perfectly reasonable casting selection. Well done, Hollywood people.
There's more horror themed shows coming to the little screen in the near future then you can shake a stick at and today we've got word there's one more. "Sleepy Hollow", based on the classic headless horseman tale, is being put together by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the same cats that brought you "Fringe". The project is still being pitched to the big wigs so it's not 100% locked in but if no one wants it I'm willing to toss a ten spot in and they can act it out in my living room.
A New Hampshire lab tech is in hot water after it was discovered he had been stealing a powerful anesthetic from his job and replacing it with saline. The kicker here? Apparently he had been using the needles and has given more than 30 people Hep C.
Here's a heartwarming story about a California man who is under arrest after he shot his own son. Why did he shoot his son you might ask? Well because he chose a Kenny Chesney song at karaoke. Seams reasonable enough.
