Horror Headlines 4/7/08

I just have one question for you on this Monday morning... how is it that the comic book "Mr. T Vs. Dracula" hasn't been made into a movie yet? I'll tell you why, because there's no justice in the universe.

On Friday we told you about an Indie anthology film called "Pranks", in which each segment is being directed by scream queens Heather Langenkamp, Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris respectively. Well if you visit the producers Myspace today, He has posted a bunch of pictures from Danielle Harris' segment of the film. Check them at the link.

Jensen Ackles ("Dark Angel", "Supernatural") has been tapped to star in Lions Gates' "My Bloody Valentine: 3D". His character will be "A handsome, principled man who returns to his home in Harmony, Mo., 10 years after 22 people were murdered on Valentine's night. Back in Montana, Tom finds he still is smitten with his first love, Sarah (Jaime King)." Considering that almost every role Ackles takes could be described in some way as "heart-throbby", this can't be good news for this remake.

Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, directors of the amazing French film "Inside", are officially off the "Hellraiser" remake. Wow, it didn't even make it to production before the producers started to screw the foreign talent. This is becoming an alarmingly prevalent trend. In the meantime, check out the TV trailer for "Inside", on DVD April 15th!

In Real People News:

  • Comics: Occult Crimes Taskforce

    When I say 'Rosario Dawson' most of you will associate actress, mega babe, 'Clerks 2', and the like. I'd risk a guess and say that few of you would associate the name with 'comic book creator'. It's true nerds; she's nerdly.

    'Occult Crimes Taskforce' is a four issue mini-series published by Image Comics in mid 2006. The story contained within tells of a special branch of the Manhattan Police Force put together to handle cases that are occult in origin, as the name suggests.

    The Ruins (REVIEW)

    Screenwriting gurus Syd Fields or Robert McKee will tell you that you need ten solid scenes to make a movie work, and the rest just needs to stay out of the way. If "The Ruins" has ten such scenes, there certainly isn't much else. The film, directed by former fashion photographer Carter Smith, breezes by, feigning at both character and plot without bothering to develop much of either.
