Horror Headlines: September 17th, 2012
I'm seriously considering buying a "Resident Evil: Retribution" poster online after seeing the film yesterday. Just thought I'd give you fair warning as to where my frame of mind is these days. Speaking of "RE: Retribution", Paul W.S. Anderson's candy coated confusion machine topped the box office this weekend, raking in $21 million. That's $5 million less than the last film opened to, and the smallest opening since the original. However, keep in mind that these films have done absolutely BONKERS business overseas. In fact, if this one does well this whole series could reach $1 billion in overall profit. Chew that over for a few minutes... Also, stay tuned to the site for some (hopefully) big podcast news...
Here's what the new Robocop looks like. I'll save you the time it takes to click... it's not even silver! What the hell are we doing here, people...
Anchor Bay has acquired Rob Zombie's "Lords of Salem" after its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last week. Thank God they use the acronym TIFF, because typing the entire name makes me want to quit life.
Check out The monsters you missed in "Cabin in the Woods". I made my wife watch this on Bluray with me last night. She just looked confused. Me on the other hand? I'm calling it now, horror film of the year. Everyone else should go home and feel bad about themselves.
Here's the new Norman Bates that will star in A&E's "Bates Motel". I will continue not watching horror on television because it will always be terrible.
Tom Savini's "Night of the Living Dead" remake from 1990 is coming to Bluray. If you haven't seen it, you should, it's pretty fantastic.
