Horror Headlines: Tuesday October 6, 2009

"Paranormal Activity" director and scribe Oren Peli has announced his next project, Area 51. Applying the same narrative style as his current hit, "Area 51" will follow a group of teens who find themselves mistakenly at the infamous Air Force base.

Eduardo Sanchez confirms rumors that he has re-teamed with Dan Myrick to begin work on "Blair Witch 3". The movie appears to be in the early planning and scripting phase, so don't go lining up at the theater just yet.

Kurt Angle and Kevin Nash face off once again, but this time on the silver screen instead of the ring. Both wrestlers star in director Bruce Koehler's "River of Darkness". Can Angle pull off a convincing small town sheriff? Better yet... can he pull off acting?

In Real People News: 

A Hellertown man goes to court for lewd contact, accused of humping various objects in the local 48 Hour Video store and making lewd comments to the young girl working the counter. On record, the man denied making the comments to the girl but, "All that other stuff? Yah, I totally did that".

A group of Chinese Dwarfs, tired of bullying in life decide to form their own community. To add to this, they've built their own theme park, complete with small mushroom houses that they now live in to draw in tourists. Countdown to Disney buyout in 5... 4... 3...

An Edmonton inmate lures the Warden in close to his cell, then pelts him with a milk carton filled with his feces. The Warden was not injured, however he was covered in shit, which kind of sucks. The inmate then proceeded to shout "I shit bombed the warden!" to the other inmates. And I didn't make that last part up, either!

On this day in history: 

1977 - Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono, Jr., Los Angeles' infamous "Hillside Stranglers," rape and murder their first victim, 21-year-old waitress Elissa Kastin.

Blair Witch Project 10th Anniversary Interview

Here's a great, hour-plus interview with cast and crew from "The Blair Witch Project". The interview was filmed August 20th at the 10th anniversary screening of the film at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Josh, who played "Josh" in the film, is pretty crass and hilarious, and the other folks dish some interesting info. They talk about the genesis of the movie and its brilliant nigh-accidental marketing campaign which changed film marketing forever, have no doubt.

The Objective (REVIEW)

Over the course of "Blair Witch Project" co-director Daniel Myrick's spiffy 2009 sci-fi thriller "The Objective," I unearthed two very important, rarely discussed truths. The first, of course, is that Myrick has yet to recapture the magic of his iconic feature-length debut, a task that teeters, in my opinion, on the brink of impossibility. There were several memorable moments in the film that came dangerously close to covering me with goosebumps, though each of these scenes is hampered by Myrick's desire to keep the majority of the story's secrets in the dark.
