Repo: A Genetic Opera Clip, more confused than ever

I'm generally pretty intrigued by Darren Lynn Bousman's "Repo: A Genetic Opera", his musical horror tale of a future where human organ re-possessors wreak havoc on the drug addicted masses. Any guy that can cast Bill Moseley and Paris Hilton in the same film certainly has my attention.

For Lions Gate's part, they seem very conflicted on the film (probably due to the change in leadership over there, as we've discussed on the show) and it's looking increasingly likely that it will go severely limited and then straight to DVD shelves.

What I did on my Summer Vacation

Hola my Bloody Good friends. It's been a while since I last showed up here and I thought I'd check in with you all and let you know what I've been up to. I've been (and still am) in Amman, Jordan for the last month, teaching English to all the little freedom-haters here. Unfortunately, here in the desert the internet is scarce and I usually only have enough to check my email and maybe look at the front page of BGH before it dries up and I have to send little Ahmad down the hill to fetch another jugful of internet.

Horror Headlines 7/30/08

Pics from the remake of "It's Alive". I know I've said this before but, we must be getting close to the bottom of the barrel here. The fact that they're now remaking films that general audiences have never heard of, just proves that it's more a lack of originality and ideas than using the name to help garner buzz.

Wes Craven's agent has been contacted about him directing "Scream 4", and he hasn't ruled it out yet. He says it all will come down to whether or not there is a cohesive script, and cites the faulty writing processes that plagued the two sequels. In related news, Craven would be out of his mind to direct this movie. Seems like common sense to me.

Sam Raimi is still flapping his gums about making another "Evil Dead" film, be it a sequel for a remake. How many years have we been reporting this same story now? I move we start treating Sam Raimi quotes like Robert Englund ones, ie wild, unsubstantiated rumor. Sorry Sam, you've done this to yourself.

In Real People News: 

Horse flavored ice cream? I'll give you one guess as to where this stuff (and other assorted vomit inducing flavors) comes from. Hint: It rhymes with "Schmapan".

Cancer treatment grown in tobacco leaves? Hmmm... I can't possibly imagine who financed this research. Thoughts?

Nerd dresses up like The Joker, goes to the theater to steal "Dark Knight" schwag, and inevitably gets caught. If he had thought critically about his plan, he probably would have realized that clown makeup isn't the right way to remain incognito while trying to pull off a heist. That stuff only works in the movies.

And finally today, I'll leave you with this headline. 15 year old buried alive in Hot Asphalt. Wow, that must have felt pleasant.

On this day in history: 

1938: In his Dearborn, Michigan office Henry Ford proudly accepts a Nazi medal on his 75th birthday. The Grand Cross of the Order of the German Eagle is the highest award the Reich can bestow on foreigners. The medal arrives with a note of personal greetings from Adolf Hitler. A rabid anti-semite, Ford paid for copies of the racist hoax "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" to be deposited in major U.S. libraries.
