Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 10th, 2009

"A Haunting in Connecticut" has been moved to the weekend of March 27th, pitting it directly against "Monsters Vs Aliens". The studio clearly underestimating the appeal a 3D film about monsters and aliens will have on horror fans.

"Casino Royale" director to possibly be tapped for "Birds" remake? Odd choice but given the action angle of the idea, I guess that sort of makes sense.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is apparently in the middle of a bidding war, with "Hollywood studios already bidding to turn the new book into a blockbuster movie." Sweet Jesus. That happened a bit fast, no?

In Real People News: 

Can't get rid of your pesky online boyfriend? Just try the old "I'm an elite vampire hunter" excuse. Gets 'em every time.

"Some of the bigger ones are gone" gets the award for most unintentionally funny line in this story about a whole ton of sex toys being dumped on someone's lawn in the middle of the night.

Box Office Special - Records Keep Rolling

Hollywood continued an impressive opening to 2009 this past weekend with another record total for this, the 6th weekend of the year. With a lineup that most will have forgotten in six months time, it seems that overall quality does matter all that much as folks are turning out to see new releases each week.

Tom Holland Wants You For New Film

Tom Holland - director of horror classics like "Fright Night" and "Child's Play - dropped us a line today to ask that we help him spread the word about his latest project. It looks like he's going even further down the road of "fan participation" than we've seen up to this point. Here's the Press Release:
