Horror Headlines 6/19/08

News has come out that we will be getting an official release date for Darren Lynn Bousman's Horror Musical "Repo: A Genetic Opera", sometime in the next few weeks. Also, the official trailer will be debuting at the next Comic Con. So, keep your eyes open!

I'm not totally sure why every horror site is reporting on this "Cleavagefield" movie, when it's basically just a straight to cable, soft core porn spoof. It could be because it's a spoof of what may be this year's biggest horror release, or it could be because it has the word "cleavage" in the title. Then again, it could just be because we all copy each other without really giving it a second thought. That said, I just posted a picture at the link so what does that say about me. I think I'm officially done with this one until it proves itself something more than late night cable fodder.

And since today is an incredibly slow news day, I'll post the new internet trailer for "X-files 2" that was posted online yesterday. It's incredibly similar to the first one, so there's not much new stuff for those of us who aren't hardcore fans out there.

In Real People News: 

Those racially sensitive buggers in South Africa have made another great advance for racial relations, by passing a law stating that all Chinese people in South Africa are now to be considered "Black". Wait, then what would Tiger Woods be?

Urban Legends be damned, it turns out that a snake really can climb up out of your toilet and (try) to bite you on the ass. Better watch that cornhole buddy!

Man is rightfully pissed that his alimony checks are going towards his wife's sex change. I don't even need to tell you where this is happening.

"Enraged" puffer fish attacks Cambodian boy's nutsack. I have no idea how you tell if a puffer fish is "enraged" or not, but I suppose him attacking your testicles is probably a good indicator.

On this day in history: 

1999: While taking a walk, horror author Stephen King is struck by a van piloted by a distracted Bryan Smith. King's extensive injuries (broken leg, broken hip, lacerated scalp and collapsed lung) remanded him to a hospital bed for three weeks. Smith would later die in his sleep on Stephen King's birthday.

This is part 3 in the series, The Decade Long Stephen King Cinematic Orgy. Part 1, with an introduction is here, and part 2 is here. Spoilers ahead.

Spore Creature Creator Released Upon The World

I've been geeking out pretty hard about Spore ever since I heard about it over a year ago. In an attempt to populate the Spore world with some serious ridiculous creatures, Maxis has released a demo and a paid, full version of their creature creator. I spent hours last night messing around with it, and made a number of ridiculous creations, including the little guy you see above you. I named him Goreno as a tribute to this site. Hopefully, I didn't save over him.

If you're bored at work today (and who are you kidding, you're reading this), than you can check out a bunch of extra clips from "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror". The film came out a few years ago and did an amazing job of chronicling everything it could about the "Halloween" series. Now director Stephan Hutchinson is sharing all the leftover goodies on his Youtube channel that didn't make it on the DVD. So check it out, yo.

More "X-Files 2" pics. It's times like these that I begin to wonder if we all just fall in line with company's marketing campaigns like little lemmings. I guess the answer's yes.

Today unleashes a complete overhaul for the official site to "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer". The film is pretty sweet, if you like Robert Englund hamming it up and hilariously obvious Canadian accents. And really, who doesn't love those things?

You too can help Clive Barker save his "Midnight Meat Train", which is not sexual at all even though it kind of sounds like it. Anyways, info on Barker's call to action at the link.

In Real People News: 

The Japanese Cannibal Otaku Killer couldn't escape execution this week, despite his genius "the Rat-Man did it" defense. For the life of me, I can't see why it didn't work. He should have hired R. Kelly's lawyers.

Jabbing a shower curtain through someone's eye is something I'd see in a direct to video zombie movie and say "no way that could happen". Wouldn't you know it, I was wrong.

In this day in age of insane crime fighting technology, it's sort of nice to know that some old lady can get away with killing 5 of her husbands before anyone bats an eyebrow. Okay it's not nice per say, but it's at least interesting.

On this day in history: 

1900: The Empress Dowager of China orders all foreigners killed. Among those meeting this fate are the foreign diplomats, their families, as well as hundreds of Christian missionaries and their Chinese converts.

Anamorph (REVIEW)

“A psychological thriller based on the concept of anamorphosis, a painting technique that manipulates the laws of perspective to create two competing images on a single canvas.”
