Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: CHRISTOPHER SMITH

Aside from the Hammer Horror films at their peak and the work of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, the British have had a hard time making a big impact on American horror audiences. Whether it be the cultural divide, the differing sensibilities in both comedy and scares, or simply the secret truth that Americans don’t like much of anything from anywhere but America, British independent horror has had trouble gaining a foothold in the States.

"Black Death" is a movie about the black plague in days of yore and it has now hit VOD, Xbox Live, iTunes and that homeless guy who lives outside the 711 has a copy on a USB drive. In celebration of this a whole gang load of images and videos have shot up on the net. Enjoy me maties! That's medieval talk!

Next up for Amanda Seyfried is a new thriller titled "Gone". The movie stars Seyfried as a girl who returns home after working her night shift to find her sister's bed empty. Is it the serial killer who terrorized her two years ago? Did she just go out for ice cream? Will the movie feature a swimsuit competition? We can only wait and see.

DreamWorks has acquired the rights to "Voices from the Dead", a movie that focuses on magician Harry Houdini and mystery author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The two go off on a fun filled weekend in Vegas, with sexy results! Wait no that's all wrong, they solve murders. My bad.

Dear mother of god if the Coen brothers make a horror film I swear to god I will buy all of you a pony. And in a recent interview Ethan Coen hinted that this may very well be happening saying that him and his brother are working on a number of scripts, one of which is a horror flick. Just so we're clear when I say I'll buy you all a pony I mean one pony that you have to share, I'm not made out of ponies.

We've all dreamed of doing it but one man in Florida saw the opportunity and he reached for it. It being $314 dollars in a stripper's garter. Of course he then got arrested and I'm just guessing had the taste knocked out of his mouth by a bouncer. But still, dare to dream folks.

Those who can't, teach. And those who teach, beat the holy living hell out of your kids if they talk back too much. Like this teacher in Maryland who hit, punched, scratched and yes choked her little first graders. That's what happens with your kids sass too much.

For those of you who were excited about "Ouijia" being a spooky ass film about demons and murder prepare to be disappointed. According to screenwriters Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis the flick will have more of an "Indiana Jones" vibe to it. Kind of sucks I know but I hope they have the board wear a tiny little Indy hat, that will be adorable.

Chris Smith's Medieval romp "Black Death" will hit On-Demand, Xbox, Amazon.com and all other forms of online tubes on February 4th and in theaters starting on March 11th. And by theaters I mean some small ones you'll never walk in because you've already downloaded a copy of the film illegally. I'll see you in hell.

Some hot new details about Chris Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" have hit the nets and I'm going to try to explain them. Dr. Hugo Strange will be the main bad guy, Black Mask runs the criminal underworld, Talia al Ghul looks to take out Bruce Wayne, Killer Croc is also looking to take a crack at Batman and if you understand what any of these things means you've probably never seen a girl naked. Congrats.

There's rumors floating around that Ving Rhames will find his way into "Piranha 3DD" despite biting the big one in the first film. There is absolutely to reason for anyone to be surprised by this. I'd bet money that Jerry O'Connell's penis shows up again too.

I smell road trip! A bar in Baltimore has started hosting a monthly event they're calling "Beer & Bacon Happy Hour." The event features bacon flavored drinks, a bacon focused menu and best of all bottomless bowls of fresh cooked bacon. The place is called Bad Decisions and I will officially be moving there next week.

A 2 year old in PA was rescued recently after crawling inside a toy crane machine and spending a solid 15 minutes enjoying herself. The question really is if someone used the machine and got the baby out with the claw would that baby then legally be owned by that person?
