Horror Headlines: Thursday December 18th, 2008

The Alamo Drafthouse makes an awesome retro poster for the original 1974 film "Black Christmas", because they're going to be screening the classic slasher on December 25th.

"Homecoming" is a thriller about a family who's vacationing in a remote island, only to return to find out that something has wiped out almost all of humanity. They soon realize that the survivors they've discovered pose a threat to them, and they must keep running until they return home. This will be directed by the writer of "The Orphanage", Sergio G. Sanchez.

Jason Standee being put in theaters to promote the "Friday the 13th" remake allows you to stick your head in a hole and take a picture with the killer... AWESOME. IDEA. The studio is also encouraging you to send in your snapped photos to them, which you can find out more info on at the link.

"Troll" remake director John Carl Bucheler wants you to use Youtube to audition for his new film. Ya, I'm sure this will end well.

In Real People News: 

So... apparently physicists now believe there is more evidence to possibly support Einstein's theory of "dark energy". I don't understand anything in that article. Does this mean that Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness" was right all along?

School is canceled today because of snow... in Las Vegas? Does this mark the return of dark lord Xenu or something? Good lord.

The town of Wilmington Ohio is about to have half of it's population laid off. If you're looking for the next big trainwreck reality show, this town might be the place to film it.

On this day in history: 

1916: Bloodiest and longest battle of World War I ends, with the French defeating Germans at the Battle of Verdun. There were over 1 million casualties, and the Verdun ossuary contains bones of 100,000 unidentified soldiers.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday December 17th, 2008

FearNET online is now streaming select episodes of the NBC series "Fear Itself". Right now, you can go and check out Stuart Gordon's "Eater", which if you ask me is by far the best the series had to offer.

Jim Caveizal's "Outlander" will finally get a limited release January 23rd, 2009. The film follows the shit that hits the fan after an alien crash lands on earth during the time of the vikings, accidentally bringing an extraterrestrial predator with him in the process. Sounds kick-ass to me my friends.

Clips from David Goyer's "Unborn", his PG-13 thriller starring Odette Yustman which gets released January 9th, 2009.

Doctors remove tumor from newborn's head, find the beginning formations of two feet, a hand and a thigh. Excuse me while I vomit.

Man gets thrown up in the air at his retirement party, colleagues fail to catch him and he dies. Where's Alanis Morisette when you need her.

No officer, I didn't suffocate that prostitute with a plastic bag, I was merely holding it at head level, and she turned and walked into it. Then, you know, I held it shut until she stopped breathing. But it certainly wasn't intentional.

Anti-kidnapping expert... gets kidnapped. That's it for me folks, you've been a great crowd.

On this day in history: 

1997: An episode of the animated TV show Pokémon induces seizures in at least 685 Japanese children. The convulsive sequence contains the depiction of a "vaccine bomb," followed by the flashing red eyes of a rat monster. Of those afflicted, 200 remain hospitalized the next day.

The Nuclear Edge--Wish List

So, I spent the entire weekend without electricity, wandering around between friends and family seeking warm shelter like a wayward gypsy. Mental note: not a fan of ice storms anymore. The point is that while I really had nothing better to do, my ruminating turned toward the upcoming holiday. To that end, I have composed a wish list of things I'd like see to happen as a favor to me. Most, but not all, are music related. They appear in no order.

M. Drew's Holiday Wish List!
