Bloody Good T-Shirt Winners!

As you're probably aware of by now folks, it's our 1 year anniversary around here. To show our appreciation for all the support you've given us over the last year, we wanted to do a special contest for you guys.

We've had lots of requests for our T-shirts, that the whole crew was sporting during last March's Horror Hound Weekend, so here we go.

Horror Headlines 8/4/08

This week marks the 1-year anniversary of our triumphant return to the interwebs. There will be some very special content popping up this week regarding the birthday, so make sure to stick around, comment, and send us some birthday wishes!

Here are some helpful links if you would like to know more about the whole "Midnight Meat Train" debacle that is still currently going on. It turns out that the new head of acquisitions at Lions Gate may have an interesting connection to "The Strangers", which may be the reason for him holding back "The Train" so to speak. Very interesting, indeed.

Speaking of Clive Barker's latest adaptation, BD claims that if you break the numbers down, the film actually did pretty darn well, considering the circumstances. Should be intriguing to see how this plays out over the course of the week.

No worries folks, the Robocop reboot will in fact be rated R. So you will (presumably) have lots of melted faces to look forward to.

Sweet character posters for "The Watchmen", as well as a bunch of new stills for the film. Since Amazon finally shipped my copy of the original graphic novel, I'll hopefully be able to check it out this week and report back with my thoughts. The film still has 6 months till release, but is obviously taking a page from the "Dark Knight" book of marketing (ie not letting us forget that it's coming out).

Disney's adaptation of "Prince of Persia", starring Jake Gylenhaal, has been pushed back an entire year to June 2010. The move is reportedly in order to avoid being crushed in it's second week by Michael Bay's "Transformers 2", which I have to agree is most likely a good idea. A whole year though? They also say that they want to make sure the film has enough time for "post production", which is Hollywood exec speak for "tons of CGI". I guess it's inevitable that a film based on a game as flashy as this would need some CGI, but with a full year to perfect the effects, that stuff better be mindblowing.

In Real People News: 

I always thought of prissy business men as the kind of people who would kill themselves with a gun, or maybe a drug over dose, not an elaborate decapitation using a sportscar, fence and a piece of steel rope. That must have been quite a scene.

Man begins scalping himself in the bathroom of a bus in Canada. And all this right around the time we review "Nightbreed" for the podcast, complete with the infamous "face peeling" scene. Maybe he was trying to get into Midian?

When you see someone carrying around the severed head of his girlfriend, and he tells you not to stop him, you should probably do what he says. Thankfully no one at this scene needed to be told twice. And what's with all the beheadings recently anyways? Must be something in the water.

On this day in history: 

1892: Someone takes an axe and kills Lizzie Borden's millionaire parents. Andrew receives 10 whacks, and Abby 14. Lizzie is later tried for the murders, but acquitted.

A little something to send you off on your weekend...

Does this look gay?

Fear Itself 8 Review - Skin and Bones

This is a review of "Fear Itself" Episode #8

Horror Headlines 8/1/08

Rogue Pictures is interested in remaking Wes Craven's "The People Under the Stairs", and Craven is fully on board. He won't be directing however, and the film will be produced by Marianne Maddalena. Since I've professed my hatred for this film many times on the site, it goes without saying that I think this is good remake news.

Brad Pitt is in heavy talks to star in Quentin Tarrantino's WWII film "Inglorious Bastards". The film will be done over at Universal Pictures, and will be Co-financed by the Weinstein Brothers.

Speaking of the pudgy moguls, they've hired Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton ("Saw" IV, V, "Feast" 2, 3) to hammer the script for the remake of "Piranha" into shape for shooting. I know that director Alexandre Aja has all the right intentions for this film (Hard R, 3D), but what was so wrong with the script that they need two MORE writers to come in on it? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

New Midnight Meat Train pic. Due to the fact that the suits over at Lions Gate are dumping this into imaginary theaters today, I'm guessing this is about all you'll see of it for a while.

"I Am Legend Prequel"? Um sure, okay. Because when I woke up this morning, the first thing I thought is that I really wanted to see another Will Smith blockbuster. What a coincidence.

In Real People News: 

I've never rode a public bus before, and this is exactly why. Did he really need to cut his head off?

This creature washed up on the shores of Montauk, right near a government animal testing facility. Okay I'm not exactly a conspiracy nut but, that seems to me like an awful big coincidence. Oh, make sure to put the donut down before clicking on that link. You can thank me later.

On this day in history: 

1966: Former Eagle Scout and United States Marine Charles Whitman carries a sniper rifle onto University of Texas at Austin. There he climbs to the top of UT tower and begins firing indiscriminately at dozens of people, killing 13. Whitman is finally taken out 96 minutes later by three Austin PD officers.
