Colin Farrell

Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 5th, 2013

If you're in the market for a new home and happen to have $2.1 million sitting around then why not move into the house from the original "Nightmare on Elm Street" film? I know what you're thinking though, West Hollywood, right? Who wants to live in California? Everyone is so damn annoying there, right? And all that traffic? Plus it's full of people from California. Well it does have a guest house also so maybe that outweighs all that other stuff.

If you don't like Colin Farrell then you're a jerk. There I said it. He's so damn charming I just don't get why anyone would dislike him. I bring him up because he's joined Anthony Hopkins in the cast of "Solace", a new flick about an FBI agent who reaches out to a retired psychic to help him track down a murderer. I could understand why you might not like Hopkins though. He comes off as kind of snooty.

Jocelin Donahue, who you might remember disliking after seeing "House of the Devil" has signed on to the cast of "Insidious: Chapter 2". She'll play a young Lorraine Lambert in the film, who I don't particularly remember from the original film but I'm going to go out on a limb and say she was a relative or something of the main characters and spooky stuff happened to her.

Blah blah blah Guillermo del Toro is doing another movie. It's going to be a new version of "The Secret Garden". It's about a garden that's secret and then all kinds of crazy del Toro stuff happens and we all go whoooo and then I ask where the hell the new "Haunted Mansion" movie that he's been talking about for years is.

In Real People News: 

Ya know with all the awful crap I've posted on here this woman in Georgia who attacked a man with a jar of olives doesn't really seem so bad. Good for her.

It's got to be sad when the only way you can get money is to break into the local Dollar Tree. It's got to be even sadder when you screw that up and lock yourself in and have to call 911 to get out.

Fright Night (2011) (REVIEW)

Colin Farrell likes his ladies in a box in "Fright Night"

As the camera swoops over suburban Las Vegas, a crescendoing score announces "Fright Night's" opening credits. Harkening to vampire films of old by blending a traditional summer movie sound with a timeless organ riff, the juxtaposition manages to call forth cinematic vampires from Bela Lugosi to Christopher Lee to Gary Oldman while also signaling a more modern setting. It's a deft touch that sets the stage for a vampire film -- indeed a remake -- that feels fresh and vibrant, a tough task in this post-"Twilight", post-Sookie Stackhouse world.

Snapshot: "Fright Night" (2011)

Craig Gillespie's "Fright Night" remake of the 1985 classic is upon us and some new stills have been released! The above snapshot features David Tennant playing Mr. Peter Vincent getting ready to fight vampires. Here's the synopsis from the OFFICIAL FRIGHT NIGHT SITE and it sounds pretty true to the original. Color me somewhat excited:

Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he's running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday June 1st, 2011

In a world of crappy remakes I was fairly happy to see that the trailer for the upcoming "Fright Night" re-telling didn't look like complete crap. Well now we've got our first clip from the vampire classic and it looks pretty... well kind of creepy and not in a good way. No vampires, no blood and no screams. Nope, just Colin Farrell tellin' a kid that his mom is in heat. Sexy.

If you live anywhere near New York City you have no doubt heard the constant crying from the locals about the filming of "Men in Black 3". Apparently the explosions make it hard to listen to their crappy indie rock records and that just won't fly. Well a few pictures from the set have hit the tubes and honestly I have no idea what part of the city these are from but I assume there's a pale man wearing owl rimmed glasses just out of the shot cursing Will Smith.

I've completely given up on reporting anything about "The Hunger Games" because I'm pretty sure by the end of this month just about everyone who's got a page on IMDB will be attached to the film. But now Donald Sutherland has been cast as the President of one of the nations that must send it's youngsters to battle it out. That's all for now though, the only way I'll mention any more casting about this movie is if they finally put me in it.

A gaggle of new posters have dropped for the new creepy stalker film "388 Arletta Avenue" and they're emoticon-riffic. It's a new saying and it's going to be bigger than "wazzup!". The move is shot from hidden cameras that are being operated by a creeper who's following the daily activities of a young couple. I have done the exact same thing to my neighbors for the past 3 years and if you haven't stalked someone before you're really missing out on something that's truly rewarding. Start now! You'll thank me later.

In Real People News: 

If you're trying to break the stereotype that wrestling is just two guys rolling around on the floor with each other you might not want to spend your time in the locker room slapping your teammates with your penis. Which is just what 4 teens in Wisconsin are being brought up on charges of sexual harassment for. This makes me wonder if the tickle fights that the wrestling team in my high school had when I was younger could have been considered a no no too.

A 22 year old women in Florida is under arrest after she gave her kid a few solid smacks after she discovered her daughter ate her stash of pot. Everyone knows you don't have to hit a kid if they eat your pot, you just have to shave their head and smoke their hair. That's parenting 101.

I've never hidden that fact that I want to make a sweet sweet baby with the original "The Amityville Horror" and now I'm giddy with delight over the green lighting of "The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes". The movie, which is set for a 2012 release, will focus on a journalist trying to uncover the true story behind the house after the events of the first film. Will it be awful? Mostly likely but F you, I want to see some bleeding walls!

Universal has decided to push the start date of Ron Howard's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" after rumors were flying around that they might pass on the 3 movie series all together. Why would they do this? I don't know, I'm not allowed in these meetings. Have you seen my wardrobe? They're not going to let a jackass in dirty jeans and a "Don't Mess With Texas" t-shirt into a big fancy executive meeting.

I'm a cynical asshole, by nature, and because of that it pains me more than anything else in the world to admit the trailer for the "Fright Night" remake actually looks really really good. And I'm not even saying that because Colin Farrell is a dreamy SOB. On a side note. When the hell did we find out this movie was going to be in 3D? I could have sworn two weeks ago we found out the cast. Now it's releasing in August? Where the hell have I been?!

Danielle Harris has become the go to gal for horror movies that aren't going to be released in theaters so here's the trailer for "Shiver", a horror movie she stars in that I'm 99% sure is only going to play in 17 theaters across the country. What the hell do I know though, it's got the guy from "Starship Troopers". Anyway the film focuses on a secretary who fights back after being assaulted by a serial killer. Rae Dawn Chong is in it too... take that however you want.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes there's a news story that's so awful it just makes you smile. Then it makes you try to figure out what the hell is wrong with you for smiling. Here's a story about an Illinois man who had a house guest who wouldn't leave. So he tossed gasoline on him and lit him on fire. Are you smiling? Yeah you are you sick prick.

And because I get a kick out of making you feel like you need another shower, here's a story about a guy who is being forced to undergo evaluation after he slapped and rubbed the genitals of his pet Chihuahua in the common area of his apartment complex. Are you still smiling? You belong in hell... sicko.

"Rubber" has been kicking around for a while now and most recently it's gotten a dandy little TV spot. If you haven't heard about the film already all you need to know is that it's about a killer tire. Short and simple I know but I wanted to leave you enough time to ponder where the hell a TV spot for this movie would ever run.

Put it in the books kids, August 3rd, 2012 will be the day that the "Total Recall" reboot will hit theaters. Len Wiseman, who directed the "Underwold" flicks will take the lead and Mr. Colin Farrell will take the lead role. No word yet on who will be cast in the role of the 3 boobed hooker but god I can't wait to find out.

A gang load of new stills from "Paranormal Activity: Tokyo Night" have hit the tubes and from the looks of things this may not be just a bunch of security camera shots. So that might be good right? Maybe it'll be awesome! I don't know, I'm trying to stay positive people.

OMG you're not down at SXSW? Gee you totally missed this hot new alt rock grind math buzzcore band last night. I'm not even going to say the name because they're so underground you wouldn't know them. There's also a trailer for a new odd looking anthology flick titled "Little Deaths" that premiered down there. You can watch it but I bet you won't get it.

In Real People News: 

Is Brooklyn in the house?! No? Why not? Oh because someone that lives in your apartment building started screwing and lit a bunch of candles for a voodoo ceremony that eventually caused a 5 alarm fire that burned down the building? Do you think when they called 911 they said "The roof! The Roof! The Roof is on fire!". Man... Brooklyn, huh?

A trendy ice cream shop in London is now offering a new flavor called "Baby Gaga" which is made with human breast milk. You've got to imagine this was some sort of dare that started with "I bet you I can get people to eat breast milk if I gussy it up enough and call it 'gourmet'".

Here's a remake shocker to start your day; who's signed on to play the fanged villain in the upcoming "Fright Night" remake? Why, none other than Colin Farrell, that's who. Farrell joins the already cast Toni Colette who will be playing mother to "Star Trek" co-star Anton Yelchin in the lead role.

A drug product research lab located in Seattle took animal cruelty to new heights when someone placed a lab monkey, cage and all, inside a rack washer. The 20 minute cycle filled with 180 degree water, caustic foam and detergents killed the monkey.

Billings, MT residents have taken a stand against the medical marijuana movement by firebombing two medical marijuana dispensaries and tagging the buildings with "Not in our town!". Maybe it's me, but I don't think the protesters thought this idea of setting a marijuana store on fire through all the way.

On this day in history: 

1310 - 54 members of the Knights Templar are burned at the stake in France for being heretics. Established during the Crusades to protect pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land, this military order came into increasing conflict with Rome until Clement V officially dissolved it at the Council of Vienna in 1312.
