Horror Headlines 10/1/08

The same guys behind "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror" and "His Name Was Jason", are setting their sights on a "Nightmare on Elm St." documentary, that they would like to have finished by the time the remake hits theaters, presumably some time in 2010.

Meet the Scream Queens!. Or at least the list of 10 VH1 hopefuls who will be participating in their reality show of the same name. As mentioned before on the site, judges will be James Gunn, Shawnee Smith and acting coach John Homa. The winner receives a role in "Saw VI", which I suppose in some way makes perfect sense. The show debuts this October and will run for 8 episodes.

Steve Guttenberg to play slasher killer... and now we have even more signs that the Mayan Doomsday prophecy is coming true.

Straight from the horse's mouth this time, Bill Murray is not only down for "Ghostbusters 3", but he's excited about the team and concept they've put together. He also confirmed that voicing his character for the videogame went a long way in bringing him around on the idea. See, video games bring people together! I always tried to tell my mom that but she would never listen.

The director of the Swedish vampire flick "Let the Right One in", which some of our readers tell me is actually highly awesome, is none too pleased about his movie being remade. He also basically says that stupid Americans should be willing to read subtitles, but hey, I can't really disagree with him on that one.

In Real People News: 

What should we call these chicks, like... the Titty Bandits?. Sorry, but it always comes back to "Home Alone" for me. Also, this happened 40 minutes north of me, in a place where I visit often. Guess I'll keep an eye out for topless chicks in suspenders next time.

Mystery meat washes ashore on New Jersey Beach. Could this be what happened to the Montauk Monster?

Woman chases children in her neighborhood while wearing cow suit, then urinates on neighbors porch. GREATEST. MUGSHOT. EVER. Hands down. I will never be able to say that again after this.

On this day in history: 

2946: The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg announces verdicts against its Nazi defendants: 3 acquittals, 4 prison terms between 10 and 20 years, 3 life terms, and 11 executions by hanging.

Seriously? New Yngwie Cover Art

Hey there, sorry it's been a few days, I have excuses but I won't bore you all with them.

Have you seen the new Yngwie Malmsteen album cover? Seriously, does he think it's still 1986? Here I thought the cover for "Trilogy" was bad. This album comes out in October, and I almost refuse to review it on principle. That, and you and I both know exactly what it sounds like. Honestly, though. Also, rumor has it Ripper Owens is the frontman for the upcoming tour. Nice to see the man working, but that doesn't make me think anything good or bad about the tour.

The Outbreak: Would you survive a zombie attack?

According to the movies, being a fan of the genre is the second best way to survive an attack by any horror movie monster (the best way, natch, is to be a virginal high school girl with lots of slutty, druggy friends).

Chuck 2.01 "Chuck Versus the First Date"

Chuck Versus The First Date

It's season premiere time again, this week bringing the brand spanking new season of NBC's "Chuck" starring Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, and Adam Baldwin!

Andrew Green

On October 14th EA will launch what may be the most anticipated original horror gaming IP since Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine first laced up their boots in 1996. It's called "Dead Space," and it will center on a rescue mission, set in a future of space travel, where an engineer named Isaac Clarke must venture to a once lost mining ship to find out what went wrong. Call it "Biohazard" meets "Event Horizon." As with many prominent game releases, EA has put a great deal of energy into promotion, a large part of which has been a community outreach effort (of which this very interview could be considered a part) as well as some high quality free content offerings that flesh out the story of the game. At the game's website you can watch interviews with developers, check out trailers and gameplay footage, and watch original (and graphic) animated videos. EA also tasked a team with creating a free interactive horror gaming experience, called "No Known Survivors", that allows players to explore the world and the back story of "Dead Space." Andrew Green played an integral role in the formation of EA's marketing strategy for "Dead Space," as well as the design and implementation of "No Know Survivors." He took some time last week to talk with Bloody Good Horror about the process of creating and marketing an original horror game.
Would you describe your role as focusing more on grassroots or do you try to stay away from that word?
