Horror Headlines: Thursday December 17th, 2009

Remember that rumor earlier this week about Bill Murray playing a ghost in "Ghostbusters 3"? Turns out Sigourney Weaver was just having a little fun at your expense. Oh, Sigourney!

Writer/director Victor Salva really hopes that "Jeeper Creepers 3" will have a proper theatrical release. MGM, meanwhile, isn't so sure.

Although it isn't technically a horror film, it's worth noting that the new trailer for Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" has appeared online. Honestly, I'm pretty excited about this one.

Additionally, the latest trailer for the high-concept remake of "Clash of the Titans" features a tasty little glimpse of the updated Medusa and the Kraken. My skepticism is quickly waning.

In Real People News: 

If you think you can rip off the library, think again. An Iowa woman was jailed for not returning the 53 movies she'd borrowed from her local branch.

After flashing her breasts at on-coming traffic, a New Zealand teen is struck by a distracted driver. I don't think they cover this sort of thing in Driver's Ed.

Impaling yourself on a wooden fence is bad enough. Having to wait over 45 minutes for help to arrive is something else entirely. Ouch.

On this day in history: 

1969 - Project Blue Book, the branch of the military that investigated UFO sightings, is reportedly terminated.



Todd has been a slave to the horror genre for as long as he can remember. After cutting his teeth on late-night Cinemax schlock and the low-budget offerings found on the classic USA program "Up All Night," our hero moved valiantly into the world of sleazy obscura, consuming the oddest films from around the world with the reckless abandon of a man without fear or reason. When he isn't sitting mindlessly in front of a television set, he can be found stuffing music, video games, and various literary scribblings into his already cluttered mindscape.
