Horror Headlines: Wednesday February 18th, 2009

Robert Rodriguez teaming up with Dimension for his next film "Neverackers". Here's the details so far: "It takes place in 2085. It centers on a character named Joe Tezca who is part of an elite unit dispatched to quell a crime wave in a theoretically perfect future society." Sounds awesome to me. Just needs a new name. Sounds too close in my mind to "Ballistic: Ecks Vs Sever". Maybe that's a stretch, but would you even risk it?

What's with all these movies about getting your kid back only to find out it isn't really them? Shit, most people would be ecstatic if that shit happened to them. This one stars Famke Janssen for those interested.

Still trying to figure out how I feel about "The Haunting in Connecticut". Will it be scary, or more of the ghost movie cliches I've come to abhor? Either way, here some new pics from the film to check out.

Adam Green's next film unfortunately won't be titled "Friday the 13th Part 2", since in my eyes he's just about the only person I'd like to see make another one. It will however be called "Frozen", about a group of teens trapped on a mountain in New England who have to fend off a pack of hungry wolves.

In Real People News: 

Wow, this story has it all. Cat abuse, mysterious internet message boards, and vigilante justice! Remind me not to fuck with 4chan.

Sending a teenage Bristol Pailin out into the world to defend teen abstinence doesn't really sound like a good idea to begin with. Until you hear her say stuff like "it's just not realistic at all", then you just get confused as to which side she's actually promoting.

Enraged TV-star chimpanzee bites off the hands and face of a woman visiting her 70 year old owner. Meanwhile, Dario Argento has just figured out the plot for "Mother of Tears 2". What a coincidence.

On this day in history: 

2001: During the Daytona 500, NASCAR phenom Dale Earnhardt crashes into the wall and dies instantly. His widow later files a lawsuit to keep his autopsy photos sealed, and Florida subsequently passes a law to prevent them from ever being released.

"God of War III" is Epic on Steroids

The thesaurus isn't giving me any workable synonyms for 'epic,' and thank god, because I can't think of a single word that defines the newest "God of War III (PS3)" trailer better :

"The People Vs. George Lucas" Trailer

Although Eric caught an inordinate amount of shit about his opinions on the "Friday the 13th" comments last week, it's safe to say that it could be worse. That is to say, he could be George Lucas.

Shaq Channels His Inner Buckethead

Man, I haven't watched Basketball regularly in years, but if something like this happened every game, I'd be on that shit like white on rice. Or, as it were, tiny break dancers on Shaquille O'Neal.

"Crawler" is Tricking Me Into Watching

"Crawler" is a low budget horror flick that caught my attention this morning. Here's the official synopsis:

A construction crew is trying to solve a mystery about their bulldozer, which appears to have a mind of its own - and an insatiable hate for the human race. They are soon to discover that the heavy machinery is in fact a shape-shifting lifeform that mimics and inherits the characteristics of its surroundings.
