Horror Headlines: Tuesday December 30th, 2008

The plot of "Jack Brooks Monster Slayer 2" will involve Jack attempting to retire from... what else, Monster Slaying, only to be sucked back in for one big job trying to stop a man who is attempting to summon a legion of demons. Considering how much we all enjoyed the original, and the fact that this one will have a bigger budget and therefore more monsters, I can't see anything wrong with this news.

Speaking of plots, here's the plot for that WWII horror flick I told you about the other day called "Devil's Commandos". The info comes from writer and mega-horror fan Todd Farmer, who tells us that the film is about a group of commandos sent on a rescue mission in WWII, who end up having to fight Satan's Army. Sweeeeet.

Trailer for "Perkins 14", one of the After Dark Horrorfest selections for 2009. The indie film festival which opens in select areas on January 9th.

Sweet new "My Bloody Valentine 3D" pics. We're at the point now (two weeks from release) where we should be seeing material for this every day now. And since I'm fully sucked up in the hype machine, expect me to continue bringing it to you.

In Real People News: 

Lighting yourself on fire does not impress the ladies. Making a note of that now, in case I forget.

Just how far do those laser pointers reach, anyways? Apparently, far enough to mess with pilots while they're trying to land planes. Wow, that kid must have had seriously amazing aim. And I'm sure this story being all over the internet won't give anyone any ideas.

Rap originated in the medieval taverns of Scotland, and not The Bronx or Brooklyn... which makes it considerably less cool.

On this day in history: 

1903: The worst theater fire in US history occurs at the Iroquois Theater in Chicago, killing 602. Most of the exits were locked; no fire drills had ever been conducted; and no water was available for extinguishing the fire. But, a prominent sign displayed above the entrance to the edifice read: "Absolutely Fireproof".

The intersection between art and horror is a well worn, Centuries old path. Our passion hereabouts is largely the film side of the marriage. As horror film fans we seem to bemoan as much as we praise; and with good reason. It is difficult to craft a 90 minute work of art that communicates the language of horror in all the varied ways that we have learned to speak it.

ATTN: BGH Gamers!

This weekend, I decided to give into the hype and purchase "Left 4 Dead" for the XBOX 360 (my system of choice, if you haven't noticed). Although I wasn't sure what to expect from the demo, I've decided that I made a great decision. However, I've also decided that playing alone, while fun, will get old, and I have no interest in playing against/with people I don't know.
