Horror Headlines: Tuesday January 20th, 2009

Alexandre Aja will not make his original release date of July 24th with "Piranha 3D". It seems the film will still be going through some finishing touches, and won't be ready. He does assure us though that he will make a 2009 release.

MonstersHD, the closest thing we've ever had to a full-fledged, uncut horror movie channel, is officially dead. A message on their site broke the news today. It's unfortunate news for horror fans, as the channel aired many horror films in HD before they were even released on Blu-ray, making it a premiere destination for DishNetwork customers. That apparently wasn't enough to keep it afloat though. If you own DishNetwork, be sure to write the company and let them know that you're unhappy about it.

Adam Green teases "Hatchet 2" on his Myspace with a poster. The first one was definitely flawed, but it was undeniably fun so I would love to give this series a second go.

The phrase Straight to DVD "Amityville" sequel along the lines of "Ghosthunters" isn't helping my current stomach issues one bit.

In Real People News: 

Planning on attending Obama's innaugural Pig-Sex Orgy? Bad news, the DoubleTree hotel chain has shut it down. Damn, now what am I going to do today?

Ax swinging Juggalo (or, fan of the Insane Clown Possee for those not in the know) gets convicted for murder. Meanwhile, my petition to have all fans of ICP thrown in jail for having horrible, horrible taste is still being ignored. Where's the justice in that?

On this day in history: 

1942: The Wannsee Conference is held in Berlin, determining the Final Solution of European Jews.

Grace Leaves 'em Fainting at Sundance

The word from Sundance this weekend is that the film Grace, produced by Hatchet-man Adam Green, actually caused two audience members to faint. The film stars Jordan Ladd as a mother-to-be who, after an accident leaves her unborn baby dead, decides to carry the baby to term and give birth to it stillborn. After being born, the baby miraculously comes back to life but with more of a taste for blood than Similac. Sounds like this could make for a nice second half of a double bill with Inside.

Thomas Jane at Horror Hound Weekend!

I just happened to be perusing www.horrorhoundweekend.com when I saw this huge announcement, that none other than Thomas Jane will be attending March's event in Indianapolis! Jane was the star in the first reboot of "The Punisher" franchise, as well as last year's hit "The Mist". He's renowned for being a huge comic fanboy, and friend to nerds the world over.

Horror Headlines: Monday January 19th, 2009

According to Wes Craven's Twitter, the remake of "Last House on the Left" will be released March 13th, 2009.

Here are some awesome "Thriller" vinyl figures coming to you from the Yamato toy company. The set comes with a few different versions, including a "zombie Jacko", which is pretty sweet.

I loved Ti West's "The Roost", so I'm looking forward to whatever he does next. It's unfortunate though that his new film "House of the Devil" sounds a lot like a "Rosemary's Baby" rip. Plus, nowadays when I hear the phrase "the cast is loaded with genre veterans" it kind of makes me cringe a little. Producer Larry Fessenden says they're about to finalize the film (which has already been shot), and debut it at some festivals over the next few months.

Rob Zombie has cast Chris Hardwicke in his "Halloween" sequel, pretty much ensuring that it will be impossible to get into this movie without being distracted by all of his friends running around in it. You may remember Hardwicke from his first film "House of 1,000 Corpses", or that dating show "Singled Out" he used to host with Jenny McCarthy in the 90's.

Tons of new pics from "Friday the 13th", as well as a few sweet new posters.

In Real People News: 

As if we didn't already have enough things stacked against us in all this 2012 business, now the Sun could destroy us all. I never trusted that bastard.

Tom Cruise quote: "I've always wanted to kill Hitler, I hate that guy. Wow, perhaps the most profound thing I've ever heard.

On this day in history: 

1847: A group of Mexicans and Indians enters the Taos home of New Mexican Territory Governor Charles Bent, and scalps him.
