Horror Headlines: Tuesday July 26th, 2011
Throw another shrimp on the barbie my friends because it looks like the long awaited sequel to Greg McLean's 2005 Australian camper chop fest "Wolf Creek" is finally getting some funding. I haven't seen the original yet but it's currently sitting at 31 in my Netflix queue so that could change any month now. Check back for updates.
Get out your checkbook you shopaholic skanks because another "Friday the 13th" box set is on its way on October 8th. Much like every other set you've paid for this one will only include the films up to 8 but unlike the others it'll feature hockey mask packaging, collectible booklet and be limited to only 50,000 copies. Sorry about the skank comment.
The feel good hit of 2009 "Dead Hooker in a Trunk" is finally finding its way to VOD on August 3rd thanks for the fine people at IFC Midnight. For those of you not familiar with the family friendly hit it tells the tale of four friends whose plans for a fun night out get ruined when they discover a... wait for it... dead hooker in a trunk. Are you as turned on as I am right now? I'm sorry again about the skank thing.
If there is one movie that people have been demanding and begging for it's "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance", the sequel to the 2007 Oscar snubbed comic book adaptation staring Nic Cage. Well now the movie is in the works and today we've got our grubby little paws on a gaggle of new images from the soon to be classic. Man it's been the hottest news day ever today, hasn't it?
While I've never actually siphoned gas in my life I would assume that using a leaf blower to do it isn't the best idea. Unfortunately this Florida man didn't have my common sense and found himself engulfed in flames. Live and learn people.
And because we're not all doom and gloom around here I'm proud to report that the original Chuck E. Cheese in San Jose, California that opened back in 1977 has officially been added to The Registry of Historic Gaming. What that means I'm not 100% sure but I assume it has something to do with a ball room that's got about 2 inches of pee at the bottom of it.
