detention

Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 9th, 2011

Taryn Manning and Gillian Zinser have been added to the cast of "Manson Girls" which follows the story of the women who fell under Charles Manson's spell. Bill Moseley has already been cast as Manson which seems like a good choice because I'm 99% sure that guy is capable of murder.

"Detention" is a new slasher/comedy flick premiering at SXSW and today folks we've got a new post for the romp. The film focuses on a girl who is sent to, you guessed it, detention and must survive the attacks of a killer and make it to prom. Sounds just like my senior year of High School! Minus the killer part... and getting to go to prom.

"Humans vs Zombies" is pretty much the premise of every zombie flick but no one's ever used the title so why the hell not. The movie is about a group of students fighting to survive on a college campus that's been overrun by, you guessed it, zombies. Apparently this is also a real game kids play on college campuses, which sounds like an awesome way to spend your time in a place where booze is readily available and women are loose. America is doomed.

How the hell did this take so long to happen? A trailer for the soon to be released "Scream XXX: A Porn Parody" has hit the net and I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that even if they cut out all the sex this is still going to be better than the new "Scream" movie. Just so I'm clear though I don't want to see a version of this without the sex, that would just be stupid.

In Real People News: 

I don't care much for politics but a group in Nigeria is calming their local election was sabotaged after a large group of run away goats put the event on hold. Unfortunately for everyone involved the goats aren't talking. It's just like the old saying goes, "Goats, they can't talk". So true... so true.

I never understood the appeal of smoking but most people who are addicted seem to be pretty freakin' nuts over the crap. Case in point; is this guy Illinois who was caught smoking in a bar bathroom, where it's now illegal to be smoking in Illinois, opted to stab the crap out of the security guard rather then taking it outside. Is there black tar heroin in those things or something? Someone explain it to me!

Snapshot: "Detention" (2011)

Yep. That's Dane Cook. With blood on him. He stars along with Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right") in director Joseph Khan's "Detention." Described as a horror comedy with a little bit of time travel and John Hughes films mixed in, "Detention" focuses on a group of high school seniors who are stuck in detention on prom night. And as luck would have it, a serial killer from a slasher movie has come to life to terrorize the teens. "Detention" is scheduled for release on July 21, 2011 by Universal Pictures in (surprise, surprise!) 3D.

Horror Headlines: Monday August 2nd, 2010

Lloyd Kaufman and Troma Studios spring to life as they have signed Hollywood scribe Collyn McCoy to pen "Toxic Avenger 5: The Toxic Twins".

Dane Cook is going to dip his toes in the genre pool with a new horror comedy, "Detention". Maybe we'll get lucky some day and Dane will team up with the Wayans Brothers for a new super-horror comedy!

Darren Bousman stopped by CHUD recently to discuss his next pictures in the works, "Ninety". "The concept is delightfully simple: 90 kills in a 90 minute movie". Certainly sounds simple, but is this something you think you'll want to sit through for ninety minutes?

In Real People News: 

Michael Wayne Edwards was hauled off to jail this weekend for being a creeper. Not satisfied with ogling a women in line at the grocery store, he decided to follow her outside and spray her hair and back with a spray bottle filled with his own semen.

In an announcement that surprises nobody, it was released this week that Lindsay Lohan is being treated for Crystal Meth addiction and Bi-Polar disorder while serving her 90 day jail sentence.

On this day in history: 

1876 - Drinking at a saloon in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, Jack McCall notices Wild Bill Hickok playing poker at a corner table. Then he calmly walks over to the table and blows a wide hole in the back of Hickok's head with a .45 revolver. The professional gambler and onetime lawman was holding a pair of Aces and a pair of eights, now known as the "Dead Man's Hand."
