Horror Headlines 9/16/08

So, rumor has it that when Paramount finally releases a worthy "Friday the 13th" box set in February to coincide with the release of the remake, it will contain the infamous "unrated" edition of the first film that has never been released in the states. To my knowledge the only place it exists are on a Japanese laserdisc and an older UK release, and it contains some extra gore as well as alternate takes of certain scenes. Should be interesting to see how these DVD's turn out, since the last set was such a disappointment. And while I'm at it, is it too much to ask for original box art? Seriously?

The dude who directed the original Thai film "Shutter", is on to his next film and it's about watching a horror movie, then going home and experiencing dejavu because you're reliving scenes from the film you just watched. There's a bit more at the link but, I couldn't decide if this was the best or stupidest idea ever so, I stopped reading halfway through.

Extended clip from "The Day The Earth Stood Still", starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly. Part of me thinks this film has a lot of potential as a remake, and part of me thinks it's going to blow donkey balls. What do you guys think?

Loads of stills from "Repo: A Genetic Opera", which gets a limited release on November 7th. Also, word that as of September 30th, the soundtrack will be available for digital purchase. And no, it's not "FREE" you greedy bastards. I just hope and pray it features a song from the band Bill Moseley has with Buckethead called "Cornbugs". I in no way, shape, or form made that up. Myspace at the link.

Audrina Partride from the MTV show "The Hills" has joined the cast of "The House on Sorority Row" remake. What, you didn't think I'd let you'd get away without making you homicidal this morning, did you?

In Real People News: 

Somebody needs to get Jake Roberts some help, like NOW. I hesitated to post this, but then I thought, what kind of a parasitic website owner would I be if I didn't?

A Vegetarian diet can shrink your brain, further proving that Hippies don't know what the hell they're talking about.

Russian Satanists have more back hair than any other kind of Satanists. It's true, look it up.

On this day in history: 

1999: Disney Infoseek executive Patrick Naughton travels to the Santa Monica pier to meet a 13-year-old girl he was attempting to seduce via an Internet chatroom called "dad&daughtersex." The girl was actually an undercover cop. Disney fires Naughton almost immediately after the news breaks; the executive later pleads guilty to the charge of crossing state lines to have sex with a minor.

Who is Anchor Pete?

Hello BGH Fans,

SNL Season Opener

I find it kind of funny that most of the people who say "SNL hasn't been funny in years" are people that never even stop to watch it and give it a chance.

The reality is, that over the last 3 - 4 years there has been a lot of really talented young performers on the show, including Amy Poehler, Andy Sambergh, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig.

I never stay up to watch it because as I've covered ad-nauseum on the site, I'm not exactly a night owl. I do love the show though, so the lady and I usually DVR it and watch it on Sunday morning. I know, isn't that cute.

True Blood 1.02 "The First Taste"

Even if True Blood never becomes the great show viewers were hoping for, the second episode give us some indication that it might be a perfectly watchable and entertaining bad show. I'm even starting to wonder if all of the wooden dialogue and all the bad Louisiana by way of Hollywood accents aren't going for some kind of meta soap opera camp vibe. Maybe we should stop measuring the show against Buffy and start comparing it to Dark Shadows. Hell, maybe even Passions.

Due to a screwup on my end, recording on last night's show got botched. Don't worry, we won't be leaving you high and dry this week, we will be re-recording tonight so you should see this week's episode (in which we review Uwe Boll's "Postal") some time tomorrow morning. Feel free to call shenanigans on me in the comments.

So apparently someone wants to remake "Terror Train" again, you know, besides the remake that's already been made and is just called "Train" starring Thora Birch. Man, all this attention for a slasher starring David Copperfield. Who knew?

Another pic from "Saw V", and still no one in a trap, you can expect those any day now.

It must be Uwe Boll week here at BGH, because here's a 'making of' featurette for his new video game adaptation "Far Cry". Apparently it did gangbusters in German cinemas recently, although there is no word on when we'll see it here in the states.

Here's a clip from "Vinyan", which premiered last week at the Toronto Film Festival. "Vinyan" concerns a couple on the hunt for their child, who they think may have been captured by Thai pirates. That's a pretty big "maybe" if you ask me. It seems if that did happen it would have been pretty hard to miss.

Adrien Brody chats about "Giallo", Dario Argento's latest film in which he plays the main character.

The remake of John Carpenter's remake of "The Thing" isn't dead after all, as an interview with the director claims at the link. Helmer Marc Abraham also says that the film will be more of a prequel and deal with the events leading up to Carpenter's 1982 classic.

In Real People News: 

Preacher has sex with comatose wife, gets caught on tape. It's okay though, he was apparently "expressing his love for his wife and trying everything he could do to bring her back to consciousness". Is that what the kids are calling it these days? Sounds like a pretty complicated name for "boning a vegetable".

Teacher begins to watch S&M porn videos IN CLASS, forgets to turn projector off. Apparently he made it through 6 videos before he noticed that he was showing the entire class. Man, that's concentration right there.

Police in Italy have still not caught the man who keeps rubbing his greased up balls and butt all over shop windows in the town of Valentine. And now they've given him the clever name "Butt Bandit", which they apparently got after asking a group of 7th grade boys what his nickname should be.

On this day in history: 

1998: Rap artist Coolio is arrested in Lawndale, California after being pulled over for driving a 1996 Hummer on the wrong side of the road. He was carrying an expired license, a loaded 9mm semiautomatic firearm, and a small quantity of marijuana.
