bong of the dead

Horror Headlines: Monday, April 13th, 2009

It's not every Monday that we kick off the week with a round of "awesome indie movie title", but I'm feeling frisky so here it goes. Check out "Bong of the Dead". Aaah, an oldie but a goodie. Enjoy.

The Brian Keene novel "Dark Hollow" has been picked up for adaptation. The Story follows a half-man, half-goat "Satyr" who begins luring all the women of a small town into the woods with his spell. The men, pissed off about losing their women, go out into the woods to confront the evil. Another cool aspect of this is that he dropped the story of the acquisition on his Twitter feed, which seems to be happening more and more lately.

Here's an interesting little Japanese slasher called "Invitation Only". While digging through details I also discovered that it stars Japanese "actress" Maria Ozawa. Who is that you might ask? Let's just say if you're going to Google her, you may want to wait until you're in the privacy of your own home... with the lights off... and the door locked.

I was staying away from the rumor but today we have confirmation, Elizabeth Shue is confirmed for the remake of "Piranha 3D". The film, being shot in the newest 3D technology, is being written/directed by Alexandre Aja, of "Hills Have Eyes" and "Mirrors" fame. Shue will play the role of Sherriff Julie Forester, a "take-charge authority figure in the community of Lake Victoria". Sounds sassy!

And finally, a little treat for you on this Monday, a much better look at Megan Fox in Diablo Cody's "Jennifer's Body". Don't ever say I'm not looking out for you guys.

In Real People News: 

The awesome thing about Woody Harrelson, is that I really do believe he attacked that photographer because he thought he was a zombie. You can't blame the man for trying to stop the apocalypse.

Oregon bill successfully outlaws "facials", but not the actual practice they were aiming at, ie a gang ritual in which members were forced to throw their semen at people in public areas. Way to go, guys.

Those massage chairs they have at the mall for when you're tired are a pretty great idea... unless of course someone jumps to their death and lands directly on top of you. That's not relaxing AT ALL.

Woman develops "phantom" third arm, and tests have proven that her brain is literally "controlling" the limb and processing feedback. Really cool story you guys should check out.

On this day in history: 

1984: Itinerant serial killer Henry Lee Lucas found guilty by a Texas jury for the murder of "Orange Socks", a hitchhiker whose name is not known. Lucas and his partner Ottis Toole are thought to have killed as many as 200 people.
