Horror Headlines: Monday October 22nd, 2010
If you saw one supernatural horror film this past weekend there is a solid chance it was "Paranormal Activity 2". The film had the highest-grossing opening weekend ever for the sub-genre with a chicken foot shattering $41.5 million. I know five naughty little podcasters who saw it and will be recording a show for it this week. See how that tied in? Wasn't that nice?
In honor of "The Walking Dead" finally hitting AMC this coming weekend the good people behind the series have released some new behind the scenes photos. The show looks awesome and I have nothing bad or sarcastic to say, which is strange and confusing to me. Thanks AMC, you made me hit puberty again.
For those of you waiting with baited breath for "Host 2" to be released you can now officially wet yourself because the sequel is going to be released in 3D! But now that you're all excited I should also mention that the 3D conversion will delay the film's release as well as change the overall logistics. Waaah!
Steven Spielberg has confirmed that he will be bringing "Robopocalypse" to the big screen in 2013. The film is based on a book by Daniel H. Wilson and focuses on the fate of humans after the robot uprising. Hopefully there will also be robot cops because I keep reading the title as "RoboCopOcalypse".
Lex Friedman and Megan Morrison have created what they are calling "Snuggie Sutra" which combines all the comfort of a snuggie with the passion and flexibility of the Kama Sutra. I'm not really sure where we go from here folks, let's just call it a day.
1938 - The Archbishop of Dubuque, the Most Reverend Francis J.L. Beckman, denounces the newfangled Swing music -- the latest craze -- as nothing more than "a degenerated musical system... turned loose to gnaw away the moral fiber of young people." Its cannibalistic rhythms are said to lead one down the "primrose path to Hell."
