Weekly Horror News Round Up - Friday, October 17th

A couple days ago Mark IMed me and said, "Do you still want to write for the site?". I'm honestly not sure if he was saying it in a "Hey do you want to write for the site? You're pretty good and you should get back into it" or a "What exactly do you think you provide for this world? Deadbeat..." sort of way. Either way, I felt guilty so I've decided to start writing the news again... once a week... for at least the next 3 weeks. Enjoy.

  • Hey remember that saucy red head from from the first season of "American Horror Story"? Yes, the one who pranced around the house in a Halloween-style maid's uniform! Well, her name is Alexandra Breckenridge and she's signed up for the 5th season of "The Walking Dead". If you loved her as the dirty maid just wait till you see her as the dirty whatever the hell she's going to be. And by dirty I mean hasn't showered in god knows how long, the un-hottest kind of dirty there is.
  • Relativity Media has decided to push up the release date of "The Woman in Black: Angel of Death" to January 2nd from it's original January 30th date. The movie takes place 40 years after the original story and focuses on a group of children who find themselves in the same house after they're evacuated from their town. You can now enjoy that 3 weeks earlier than originally planned. Please update your calendars accordingly.
  • Apparently there's a sequel in the works for my favorite film of 1996. That's right, "Independence Day 2" is in the works and apparently it has been for a while. I haven't really been paying attention to anything for a while now. It’s been given a new release date of June 24th, 2016. Please update calendars again, accordingly.
     
  • The remake of the 1982 classic film "Poltergeist” has been slapped with a PG-13 rating by the fine people over at the MPAA. This might not seem like a big deal since the original was actually rated PG but I’m 99% sure at that time the PG-13 rating didn’t even exist then. I’m also pretty sure that back then you could also have full frontal nudity and murder an endangered species on camera before they even thought about giving you an R. It was a simpler time.
