Horror Headlines: Thursday December 2nd, 2010

I have no idea if this is a surprise or news at all, but a sixth season of "Dexter" has been confirmed. In related news the sun will in fact rise tomorrow and I will still not have clean underthings.

If I have to explain to you what "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus" is about then I don't think we can be friends anymore. All you need to know is it hits DVD on December 21st and there's a new trailer for it. Oh and you should probably know that I want to see other people too, but that doesn't have anything to do with the movie.

This on the other hand is very much news. September 16, 2011 will be the most magical day ever because "Piranha 3DD" will hit theaters. We should all go camp outside the theater now so we can get the first tickets.

Bill Moseley and Civil War horror movies go together like sex and peanut butter. That's a fact. So here's some new pictures of him and the rest of the gang in "Exit Humanity". Of course the movie was filmed in Toronto so maybe this is some other Civil War they had over maple syrup something. Beats me.

In Real People News: 

A Pennsylvania man has been jailed after getting all loopy on a mixture of prescription pills and alcohol and beating the crap out of his roommate. Why did he do this? Well he was so high that he thought he was a Jedi Master of course.

If you can rob a gas station with a 3 foot long tree branch you shouldn't have to face any prison time. That's a fact and I'm pretty sure it's somewhere in the constitution right next to "being awesome" is a perfectly good reason for driving drunk. I love freedom.

Horror Headlines: Thursday November 11th, 2010

In a shocking twist the much anticipated sequel to "Piranha 3D" will be shot in... you guess it, 3D. I can't say I'm mad about this and the fact that they're calling it "Piranha 3DD", teehee, makes me giddy as all get out. I think that's a saying.

What's got two thumbs and has Nicolas Cage fever? This guy! And you will too after you check out this new poster for "Season of the Witch". Did you look? Are you excited? Did you see Ron Perlman's name awkwardly placed at the bottom? I love it!

Alan Spencer, the guy who created "Alan Spencer" (look it up it's awesome) is working on a new show for IFC that follows a serial killer who's trying to juggle both his after hours activities and his social life. It's going to be called "Dextter". Alright that last part is a lie but it's a good suggestion I think.

A movie about a magic mushroom hunt gone terribly wrong? Sign me up kids, here's some new images from the German slasher flick "One Way Trip 3D". Let me narrate them for you. "Creepy, boring, creepy boring, holy crap why would you do that?!"

In Real People News: 

Didn't Bill Cosby do a bit on this? A man in Pennsylvania was picked up for lighting a joint in the delivery room while his wife was giving birth. Wrong sure but I can imagine that's a pretty stressful event. Cut the guy some slack.

A woman in Florida is facing charges after trying to sell her baby in order to buy a car. Now before we go calling her a monster let's ask ourselves, what kind of car was it? A used Dodge Neon? Awful. A NEW Dodge Neon? Understandable. Wait they don't make Neon's anymore? Burn the witch!

On this day in history: 

2000 - A cable car crammed with skiers and snowboarders caught fire while being pulled through an Alpine tunnel in Austria, killing 155 people.

Horror Headlines: Friday September 17th, 2010

Danny Trejo and Erin Cummings are rumored to star in the biker gang revenge flick "Tarantula". Is it weird that I have a man crush on a 60+ year old ex-con? Yeah I thought so. Oh and don't think I didn't notice the last name Cummings.

There's a new clip out there for the upcoming "I Spit on Your Grave" remake and it's a real hoot. I've yet to figure out why this remake needed to happen but I have to say the cast really got the whole creepy white trash thing down. That's a plus, right? Right?

For the kids in the Los Angeles area you've got a chance to see the Stephen King classic "Maximum Overdrive" on the big screen. This film's got killer trucks, Lisa Simpson and a soda machine that hates guys balls so there's really no reason not to love it.

A new clip from "Dexter" Season 5 has found it's way online and I couldn't be more giddy about it. The news season premiers on September 26th and I've already got my special order of 50 wings in for that night. That really has nothing to do with the show I just really like wings... a lot.

In Real People News: 

A 33 inch tall cow in London has been declared the worlds smallest by the Guinness World Records. 33 inches London? Really? If you guys can't get your cows all jacked up on growth hormones like ours than what CAN you do?

On this day in history: 

1862 - Union forces hurled back a Confederate invasion of Maryland in the Civil War battle of Antietam. With 23,100 killed, wounded or captured, it remains the bloodiest day in U.S. military history.

Even I'm not old enough to have caught "The Excorcist" in theaters when it first came out but on September 30th, we can all run to the theater to catch the classic on the big screen once again. Coming out one week before the film is released on blu-ray, Fathom Events will be showing the director's cut of the film followed by a few of the special features from the upcoming disk release.

This past Saturday saw the first round of Emmy Awards at their Creative Arts Ceremony where the more technical awards are given before the broadcast. In a move that shouldn't be a surprise to any fans of the show, John Lithgow took home the Emmy for Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his run as serial killer Arthur Mitchell on "Dexter".

Hoping to see Doug Bradley reprise his Pinhead role in the upcoming 9th sequel, "Hellraiser: Revelations"? I hate to burst your bubble but according to Doug himself, he doesn't plan on returning.

Need some more wrestling in your horror movies? Than check out this blurb on "Monster Brawl" which just began shooting. Starring wrestling stars Jimmy Hart and Kevin Nash, the film plans on showcasing a monster fight-club set up in an old graveyard. Which to be honest? Sounds kind of awesome.

In Real People News: 

A 24 year old mother to be was checked into the hospital when her doctor ordered her to be connected to a feeding tube due to severe vomiting from her pregnancy. When the assigned nurse confused the tubes connected to the young woman, she hooked her feeding tube up to her IV forcing her meals directly into the patients veins. The mix-up resulted in the death of both the mother and the unborn child.

Good news for all you hipsters our there who need to be ironic on the latest technologies. "Troll 2" is coming to Blu-Ray! So now you can show your friends how witty you are by thinking the film is great and how you paid thirty bucks to prove that point. Congrats!

"Underworld 4" has had it's release date pushed back a second time now and won't see a release till January of 2012. Disappointing I know but the good news is "Underworld 5" will hit theaters in March of 2011. Alright that's a lie, it isn't disappointing at all.

Chris Vance from "Prison Break" is the latest addition to the ever growing cast of "Dexter" season 5. I have no idea if this is good news or not. Is "Prison Break" still on? If they haven't broken out by now I'm thinking maybe they should just do the time and call it a day.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes litter can be adorable kids. Just look at this bear cub in Florida who had a plastic jar stuck on its head for ten days. Sure it could of died but really that's a small price to pay for hilarious internet videos.

On this day in history: 

1992 - Actor-director Woody Allen admitted being romantically involved with Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his longtime companion, actress Mia Farrow.

The fine people behind the upcoming "Saw 3D" release have put out a pretty dandy 3D poster that will blow your little peepers out of their sockets. There's also a solid chance this will be the best part of this movie, so enjoy it while it lasts.

"Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo", which is a brand spanking new animated webisode found it's way to Comic Con and the internerds are all a flutter. The web series gives us all a chance to see what went on in our favorite serial killer's life before the show started. In episode three he goes out an buys all those cool cabana shirts.

Fresh from Comic Con comes news that Guillermo del Toro is going to be making a "Haunted Mansion" movie based on the Disney ride. I can't even begin to explain how excited I am about this but apparently they aren't going to be asking Eddie Murphy to join the cast. Am I the only one who enjoyed the last one? I can't be alone here.

In order to build up the hype around it's estimated 2014 release the fine people behind the "Night Of The Demons" remake have released a poster. Alright the 2014 thing is kind of bullshit, it just feels like we've been talking about this masterpiece forever now. You can't rush Shannon Elizabeth and her perfection.

If you loved "The Mutant Chronicles", and honestly who didn't, you'll be excited to know that its creator Simon Hunter is currently working on a new a new flick titled "Safe House". I'll be honest, I didn't like "The Mutant Chronicles" and I could care less about this, but I thought I should post one thing that didn't come out of Comic Con.

In Real People News: 

I would love to mock this guy in South Carolina who was killed after he got drunk and tried to high five a train but I can't. Not because I'm a sensitive person and it isn't cool to make fun of the dead but because I've gotten pretty wasted and tried to slap the subway a number of times.

A two headed bearded dragon sounds like the most frightening thing Jesus even invented but honestly it's adorable. The kind of adorable that makes you want to go out and slap a train.

On this day in history: 

1984 - Vanessa Williams became the first Miss America to resign her title, because of nude photographs published in Penthouse magazine.

"Repo: The Genetic Opera" is coming to The Wings Theatre in NYC this Saturday July 10th. Between this, the heat wave and the inevitable LeBron James rejection that's coming I thank god I'm getting out of the area this weekend. I predict riots in the streets before the second chorus of whatever god awful song opens up that thing.

In preparation for tomorrows release of "Predators" Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal sat down to discuss the filming process and why someone would name their child Nimrod. That second part was cut from the interview I think. Look for it on the Blu-Ray special features though!

A trailer for the new season of the VH1 show "Scream Queens" is online and to be honest is a little disappointing. The contestants will once again compete for a role in the next "Saw" film but no James Gunn this season and from what I can tell no ridiculously over sized fakes breasts. Really I could have let the James Gunn thing go but I'm not sure if I can get past the other.

Hot news for everyone heading out to Comic-Con. The cast of "Dexter" will be doing a panel discussion as well as premiering a new trailer for season 5 which hits Showtime on September 26. There's also going to be a lot of attractive women dressed up in skimpy superhero outfits. But you're probably more excited about the "Dexter" thing. Nerds.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes you just have to stand up for what you believe in. Like this guy out in Georgia who held his mother hostage because she refused to iron his cloths. Good for you buddy, don't back down.

A truck in Rome carrying 2.5 million euros overturned on the highway recently and motorists scooped up the prize. Sounds impressive until you realize 2.5 million euros equals roughly 13 U.S. dollars.

Corey Feldman seems to have hated "Lost Boys 2: The Tribe" as much as the rest of us. In a recent interview, the actor discusses why he thinks "Lost Boys 3: The Thirst" will actually be good. While my expectations still run rock bottom, his promises of seeing the Frog Brothers actually together at least sound fun.

"Rubber", a film about a pissed off psychic tire named Robert has been picked up by Magnet for distribution . If you've been dying to see a movie about a killer tire, you'll be set when the movie soon arrives on VOD channels across the country.

NPR correspondent Cory Turner recently took on a personal quest to track down the remains of the mechanical sharks used in the classic "Jaws". The three mechanical monsters were long believed to have been destroyed after shooting had ended for the film but much to Mr. Turner's surprise, he found one that had been forgotten about!

If you're working in Army intelligence and leaking confidential information about U.S. soldiers and their actions, it would be a good idea not to brag about the fact. Doing so will get you arrested.

A Brooklyn man is stabbed to death on the elliptical machine at his local gym, apparently for not letting the thugs have their turn. You'd think all that stabbing would keep them in shape. Guess not.

I'm not necessarily saying that Marijuana is safer than alcohol... I'm just saying that a high dude would never burn down his house because his wife wouldn't give him a cigarette. He'd probably just take a nap and hope she'd changed her mind by the time he woke up.
