Horror Headlines: Wednesday August 26th, 2009

Video game geeks the world over cried out loud when news came awhile back that Gore Verbinski was no longer attached to the big screen "Bioshock" adaptation. Fear not, because Universal has announced that the movie is still moving forward. "28 Weeks Later" Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has now been tasked to bring the underwater spook fest to life.

Jeff Gentry, director of 2007's indie horror darling "The Signal", has been given the reigns to MTV Films' "My Super Pyscho 16". While there are no details available for the film, it is said to be a slasher, and judging from his earlier film, Gentry should be up to the task.

Cover art for the upcoming "Night of the Creeps" DVD and Blu-ray has hit the streets and they're different for each format! One looks cool, one looks rushed, you be the final judge!

In Real People News: 

A woman thought her boyfriend was acting a bit off when they were playing around in the hot tub, and it wasn't until they were having sex that she noticed he didn't have his usual cowboy tattoo on his ass. Turns out, it was her boyfriend's twin brother. Whoops!

Australian Police arrest a man dressed as a monkey, randomly hugging mall shoppers and posing for pictures. When asked for his name, he made random squeaking noises and replied only with 'Monkey'. In other news, it is discovered that Australian Police have absolutely no sense of humor.

A fight breaks out in a prison cell when an inmate farts in the face of the guard patting him down. Now THAT'S comedy.

On this day in history: 

1858: The first news dispatch sent via telegraph hits the world. 150 years later, that first form of mass communication has evolved to random people bitching about Rob Zombie 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
