Amazing horror themed typography prints

As it turns out, Etsy isn't just a place to buy horribly overpriced old stuff labeled as "vintage", or hand knitted cat-hats... nope, if you dig beneath the surface, there's actually a great amount of horror/nerd inspired stuff for you waste your money on as well. Check out more prints like this awesome Freddy Krueger one, including a new "Zombie Rules" series, over at Matt Peppler's Etsy store. (click to enhance)

Rueben Fleischer, director of "Zombieland" reveals in a recent interview that 3D is a definite possibility for the planned sequel.

Stephen King lets slip to David Cronenburg that he has ideas percolating for a sequel to his classic "The Shining". With King however, that could still be decades away.

In Real People News: 

Bangladesh has passed new laws to regulate the sales of sulfuric and hydrochloric acid, formerly available to anyone off of the street. All of this is to curb a recent rash of guerilla acid attacks used to melt people's faces.

Joss Whedon's "Cabin in the Woods" gets bumped ALL the way to January 2010, and in the meantime will be "converted" into 3D. An interesting move considering we don't even fully know what the film's about yet. Thoughts?

In Real People News: 

This guy sounds like a real life "Maniac Cop". You know, only without Bruce Campbell and all the campiness.

Mmmm... nothing sounds better while you're eating breakfast than a heaping helping of Sea Mucus. Gross.

The famous gun-toting soccer mom who made headlines recently for her love of her handgun, has been found dead in an apparent murder-suicide. I believe the phrase you were looking for is, "holy shit, that's ironic!"

On this day in history: 

1978: Former Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious stabs girlfriend Nancy Spungen to death in room 100 of New York's Chelsea Hotel. Because Sid remembers nothing about the crime, theories include robbery and an abortive suicide pact. Vicious dies of an ugly heroin overdose shortly before his trial.

Nightmare trailer coming soon

I unfortunately do not have the trailer for "A Nightmare on Elm St." just yet, but there are whispers that a teaser trailer will front "Zombieland" on October 2nd, a movie that most genre fans won't have to go out of their way to see. I'm just glad it's not attached to a "Saw" film.

The Elm Street trailer will debut online around the same time. Producer Brad Fuller tweeted yesterday that:

Sometimes teasers/trailers can be found on the internet before they end up in theaters.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday September 23rd, 2009

This clip from "Zombieland" has a zombie clown in it... so that's pretty awesome.

See the upcoming premiere of Showtime's "Dexter" early in NY or LA. Lucky bastards.

Rumor has it that the "Nightmare on Elm St." trailer will be coming soon, with the possibility that it will be seen infront of prints of Columbia's "Zombieland" on October 2nd. Expect the internet version to show up just about that time.

In Real People News: 

When a pet store closes down, you would probably think that someone would, you know, take the animals out of it. In this case you'd be wrong.

Yup, "Tree Man" is really gross. Not recommended before breakfast.

You know when you read a news story, and all you can think is "this is not going to be good for horror fans"? Ya, THIS is one of those stories.

On this day in history: 

1939: Sigmund Freud commits suicide with the help of his personal physician, Max Schur. The culprit? A lethal dose of morphine.

Horror Headlines: September 14th, 2009

Here's 5 clips from "Dexter" season 4, which I won't watch because I'm still making my way through season 3, which by the way has been just as kick ass as the first two so far. Highly recommended.

Today sees the announcement of "Never Sleep Again: The Elm St. Legacy", a retrospective documentary on the Nightmare series. It comes co-directed from the man who brought us "His Name Was Jason", but promises to be more in-depth and informational, which sounds good to me. I enjoyed "His Name...", but couldn't get over the fact that it felt like giving Jason Voorhees a blowjob for 90 minutes. A little more substance this time around would be a great thing.

Another purported "Cloverfield 2" viral video. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is why someone would be so excited about moving to NYC after what happened just a few years ago (In the "Cloverfield" universe that is). The city looks to be in awfully good shape for one that was decimated by a giant crab-monster thing.

Let me just state this on the record right now... "Ring 3D" sounds like possibly the worst idea I've ever heard. Know this.

In Real People News: 

Nevermind, THIS is gross. Sorry folks, I don't make the news, I just report it.

Thai man lives with 4,600 scorpions because you know, why wouldn't he?

On this day in history: 

1956: Surgeons Walter Freeman and Egas Moniz perform America's first prefrontal lobotomy on a depressed, 63-year-old Kansas woman in Washington, D.C. They successfully create a lethargic dullard, and the duo hails the result for years to come as a medical triumph, despite the fact that two of their next twenty lobotomy subjects end as fatalities.

Seriously Indie filmmakers, I admire your pluck in deciding to make an indepednent horror film... but can we please, please get rid of the creepy clown archetype? It's so over.

As we near the release of "The Collector" on Friday (could you tell? ;), here's 2 new clips to give you a little better idea of what you're working with. The film comes from "Saw" IV-VII scribes Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, and deals with a home invasion where the invader discovers there's a far worse evil awaiting him when he gets there.

In Real People News: 

Rita Hooker named Layperson of the year... everyone else gets an award for not snickering. Except me of course.

The Sun really outdoes itself with this report of a "killer chipmunk". I think my favorite part is the sassy photo about halfway through.

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.

Horror Headlines: Thursday July 23rd, 2009

Here are details of Darren Lynn Bousman's next film "Abattoir". His previous film was "Repo: The Genetic Opera".

The first official teaser poster for "A Nightmare on Elm St.". It's still shadowy (as was yesterday's picture that came out), so hopefully we'll get a real nice look at Freddy Krueger sooner rather than later.

Official poster for "Saw VI". All I'm saying is, these people know how to make promotional art.

And speaking of "Saw", the director of the original, James Wan will be directing "Castlevania". He'll be working on his own version of the script with Producer Paul W.S. Anderson, and taking over helming duties from there. So, as of now it sounds like this long dormant project has some new life in it.

In Real People News: 

Taste something funny in your Big Mac secret sauce recently? Ya, it was probably people. If Charlton Heston were here, he'd be screaming right now.

Hey dumbass... I'm sure that bison is real pretty, but you probably want to stay more than 10 feet away when taking pictures of it, or else you'll probably get your ass gored.

On this day in history: 

1982: Vic Morrow is killed filming a stunt sequence for "Twilight Zone: The Movie" near Valencia, California. Morrow and two child actors are chopped into bits by the main rotor when a helicopter positioned dangerously close to the talent suddenly crashes.

First Look at Freddy Krueger From the NOES Remake

Well here it is, our first *sort of* look at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger. It's hard to see much but I can tell you that his tiny pea-head creeps me out by itself. Rumor has it we'll see a better shot later in the day as the first official day of comic-con swings into full gear. Stay tuned...

Horror Headlines: Tuesday July 14th, 2009

New concept posters for "Let Me In", Matt Reeves remake of the Swedish vampire film "Let The Right One In". Not a whole lot to latch on to at this point considering they haven't even cast the roles yet, but they're semi-interesting if you're invested in how this will turn out.

"Gatekeeper" is a "zomcom" (their words) starring Lea Thompson, Judge Reinhold and Ron Perlman. It has a great cast, but their selling point is sure to make you cringe, "Shaun of the Dead" for American audiences... because you know, us stupid Americans can't watch a movie with British accents (?)

Platinum Dunes will be revealing something big for "A Nightmare on Elm St." at comic-con this year. In his blog, producer Brad Fuller also calls you an "idiot" if you don't think anyone else can play Freddy Krueger. Make your own judgements about his limited vocabulary.

Proably NSFW clip from "Antichrist"... you've been warned.

The first images from Thomas Jane's directorial debut "Dark Country" have surfaced. The film is about a couple who decides to get married in Vegas, but along the way they run into an accident victim who quickly turns their vacation into a nightmare.

Stephen King's "The Cell", which we last heard was NOT being made by Eli Roth, is being adapted into a 4 hour mini-series.

In Real People News: 

Olympian grows tired of asking his parents for money to fund his bid for glory, opens up brothel to raise money. I think we can all agree this guy deserves a golf clap.

I suppose playing porn out of your window really loudly is one way to get rid of the neighbor children. Of course a dirty robe and a baseball bat is usually pretty effective too, but I'm not against innovation.

Texting teen tumbles into manhole, and the parents are trying to sue the city. Luckily they can't sue me for laughing at their dumbass child.

On this day in history: 

1966: Richard Speck slaughters eight student nurses from South Chicago Community Hospital, in what would become known as the first mass murder of the media age.
