Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 7th, 2009

"The Gate 3D" has secured $1.9 million and will begin shooting in Germany shortly, under the direction of Alex Winter. Winter starred in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" in the 80's, and also directed the 1993 cult classic "Freaked".

Vanity Fair has a few, slightly new pics from "Alice in Wonderland", directed by Tim Burton and starring Helena Bohnam Carter, Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway.

Darren Lynn Bousman lines up comic adaptation for after he's finished shooting the "Mother's Day" remake.

In Real People News: 

Naked man arrested for running into an arcade on the California/Nevada state line... says he took some LSD and thought he was "the Terminator". Awesome.

This is what happens when internet fights turn into real life fights complete with ear-biting. Just let it go people, let it go.

Gay lumberjacks protest teabaggers. Easily the best headline this week.

On this day in history: 

1665: King Charles II and his entourage flee London, a city suffering the ravages of the black plague. At this point, about 2,000 Londoners are dying weekly.

Horror Headlines: Monday June 15th, 2009

Joss Whedon was offered and turned down a chance to work on the "new" "Buffy the Vampire" slayer film which is in development, which is reportedly a remake of the original film. Apparently producers were a little surprised at the level of negative buzz their announcement created amongst Buffy fans (really?), and so they tried to get Whedon in on the action. He wasn't biting, and so presumably they'll be going ahead with development as planned.

"Dead Bones" is a short Horror/Western that you can watch in its entirety at the link. It has gotten good buzz so far, and also stars Ken Foree, who is so fun to watch on screen he actually makes about :30 seconds of the "Halloween" remake watchable. So, your move, partner.

Reason to upgrade to Bluray: All of the special features for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will only be found on the newfangled medium. Also in today's news, the collection to "Buy Eric a Bluray Player" has officially begun. Line forms to the left.

Via his Myspace, Richard Kelly confirms that there will be a panel for his upcoming film "The Box" at the next Comic-Con. He adds, cryptically, "More news on The Box and Darko projects soon". Darko projects? Is it possible he'll be erasing the horrible taste left in my mouth from "S. Darko"? Stay tuned to find out.

In Real People News: 

Woman dies from an acute case of "Assface". And by that I mean, complications from plastic surgery involving injecting fat from her ass into her face. But ya, I like "Assface" better.

I've never really been to therapy, but I'm reasonably sure that it shouldn't involve sticking toilet brushes up people's asses. The more you know, people.

On this day in history: 

1999: Nicholas Vitalich is arrested outside a supermarket in San Diego, California for slapping his girlfriend upside the head with a large tuna. Vitalich is booked for assault with a deadly weapon
