Horror Headlines: Thursday December 4th, 2008

Man, you know what I thought when I woke up first thing this morning? That I could use a website to keep track of everything Rob Zombie does. My life is now complete.

Here's some interesting info on the adaptation of "World War Z", which is being written by Michael Straczynki of "Changeling" and "Babylon 5" fame. It sounds as if he's staying pretty true to the material, although he also mentions working with "notes" from the film's director Marc Foster, who was responsible for "Quantum of Solace". Not sure how everyone feels about that part.

John Carpenter is executive producing a remake of "They Live", his classic paranoia film starring Roddy Piper and Keith David. The remake will be a joint venture between Universal and Strike Entertainment, which is Zack Snyder's company, who directed the "Dawn of the Dead" remake. The announcement sucks, but Snyder's presence does give me hope.

Here's the last thing I expected to read today... Oscar Winner Hilary Swank to star in Hammer's next film titled "The Resident". Hmm, that's an interesting one.

In Real People News: 

Authorities have been wondering how some of the Mumbai terrorists managed to fight authorities for over 50 hours without any food or sleep. Today they have their answer... lots of Cocaine, LSD and Steroids. Holy shit, that's one lethal cocktail they had there.

This story about the long held tradition of putting pooping figures in Nativity scenes is wacky. It also reminds me about how I always used to stick a Ninja Turtle in ours and see how long it took my mom to notice and get pissed at us. Ahh the Holidays.

Good news for fellow Mac-owners out there... as Netflix streaming is now available for OSX, having graduated from its recent Beta to a full blown feature on the site. Sign up through Bloody Good Horror at the link and help support the site!

On this day in history: 

1988: Actor Gary Busey seriously injured in a near-fatal motorcycle crash, which he states also caused an out-of-body experience. Busey was not wearing his helmet, but after the accident told the press he would continue pursuing his out-of-helmet experiences.

Unearth--The March review

Frustration. It’s a word not commonly used when reviewing an album. To use it demonstrates a bias, gives the feeling that the reviewer was not objective when considering the merits of an album. Still, it’s the word I’m using. It’s all I can come up with for an album that sounds perfect one minute, and then sounds like amateur night at the Double Deuce the next.

FRINGE 1.10 "SAFE"

In the middle of this episode, Walter tells Olivia's boss Charlie Francis to "imagine yourself twenty years ago, imagining what it would be like twenty years in the future." Francis has a great response: he asks Olivia "Is he high?"

Well I want you to picture yourself, watching say, the third or fourth episode of 'Fringe'. You have to go back a month or two, to get the image. Back then, Could you have imagined the dramatic leap the show was going to take in this episode?

List with a Twist: My Zombie Marathon

In the immortal words of John Oliver, “There have always been motherfuckers, there will always be motherfuckers, but what we can't do is let them control our motherfuckin' lives”.

December is here and there is a LOT going on!! After some fantastic input from so many if you on the site (anti-shenanigans for sure!), combined with some of personal zombie favorites, my 'Superzombie Fest' has officially started and it is already one for the ages.
