Fans of the first two "Hellboy" films might want to cover up their cereal bowls because I'm about to piss all over your Wheaties. According to Hellboy creator Mike Mignola there's no chance of director Guillermo del Toro ever returning to make a third film. So i guess that does mean a 3rd film could be made without del Toro but who the hell wants to see that. The Canadians maybe but not this guy. Those hockey rioting sickos would probably eat that crap up with ketchup.

For those of you who aren't complete burnouts an can remember all the way back to 2004 you might remember some pretty bold words from Danny Elfman about never working with Sam Raimi again after his experience on "Spiderman 2". Well it looks like the Elf Man has had a change of heart and has signed on to do the score of Sam's new "Wizard of OZ" inspired flick "OZ: The Great and Powerful". So good news for those of you who are still holding out for an Oingo Boingo reunion.

Remember the days when people actually enjoyed Wes Craven's movies? Well I do and you should respect your elders you snotty little smartass. Anyway his 1977 classic film "The Hills Have Eyes" is finally being given the Blu-Ray treatment and will hit shelves on September 6th. So far no word on extras yet but this might be a nice place to record a little apology for "My Soul to Take".

If you're like me then you're still washing your eyes our with soap and water after seeing a Kane Hodder sex scene in "Hatchet 2". But here's a new slasher flick staring the Hodster as a creepy gas station owner who also seems to be obsessed with women titled "Exit 33". The flick has just been given an August 2nd release date and I can't imagine we'll see any hot Hodder action in it but if we do it'll most likely be in a gas station bathroom. Can you imagine what that would smell like?

How the hell did they not think of this sooner? The fine people at New York's LaGuardia Airport have put in a place a new plan to take geese that are in the way of planes taking off and ship them off to Pennsylvania. What happens to them there? They're slaughtered, cooked and fed to homeless people! I hope the cook is wearing a loin cloth and listening to Viking metal while he throws the geese into the oven. That's the only way this could be more awesome.

And here's a story about Chinese scientists who have come up with a new genetically modified cow that can produce milk that's similar to human breast milk. No clue as to when something like this would become available but there's a 100% chance I will accidentally buy this and put it on my Lucky Charms.

Fans of the horror-oriented comic book "The Walking Dead" have reason to be more than a little giddy, as AMC has given the series the proverbial greenlight. Frank Darabont is tentatively set to write, direct, and produce.

Bummed that Danny Elfman's score for "The Wolfman" got dropped from the film? Get ready to throw away your anti-depressants, because Elfman's work has been put back into the upcoming remake by Universal. Rejoice.

If you watch only one horror-related trailer during your lunch break today, make sure it's the new preview for Henry Saine's horror/comedy "The Last Lovecraft: Relic Of Cthulu" Trust me on this one.

In an attempt to sway comic book fans into the unstoppable cult of "Twilight", Yen Press is preparing to unleash a graphic novel based on Stephenie Meyer's popular characters this March. You may now sparkle freely.

Want to really cheese off your next-door neighbor? Once he's fast asleep, sneak cautiously into his backyard and urinate all over his precious garden.After all, if there's one thing everyone hates, it's urination.

According to felons in the know, the best way to incapacitate a police officer during a fist fight is to bite down firmly on their respective nipples and quickly pull them off. Whatever happened to a good, old-fashioned round of fisticuffs?

If the punks on their skateboards and the hippies playing drums weren't enough to work your nerves, now you've gotta look out for the people having simulated sex with trees whenever you go to the park. I believe I'll be staying inside today.

On this day in history: 

1793: The King of France, Louis XVI, is guillotined at age 39.
