dracula year zero

Horror Headlines: Tuesday April 9th, 2013

If you haven't caught VH1's "Wicked Single" I suggest you do yourself a favor and set aside this weekend to catch up on the first few episodes. It's like "The Jersey Shore" but a little drunker and way more ridiculous accents. I didn't know I could be this happy. I could hug every single one of you.

It looks like "Bates Motel" will continue to take reservations now that the show has been picked up for a second season by the folks at A&E. Season 2 won't hit the small tube until sometime in 2014 so enjoy what's left of season 1 while you can. This might be the most competent news item I've ever written.

Sad news indeed folks.Richard Brooker, best know for playing the role of Jason Voorhees in "Friday the 13th Part 3", passed away on Tuesday at the age of 58. Brooker was the first Jason to don the classic hockey mask and appeared in a number of documentaries over the years chronicling his time as the masked one.

So apparently if you sat through the end credits of the "Evil Dead" remake, which I didn't, you got to see some cool crap that I wont spoil here. But apparently there was plans for some even cooler crap to happen, which I will 100% try not to spoil right now. So I'm not saying someone survives all the demon happenings. But if someone did that someone might have gotten picked up by some folks driving down the road she was wondering down. She or he might have then passed out in the back seat and then possibly woken up as a deadite. That is if someone did make it through the night. I can neither deny nor confirm.

"Dracula Year Zero" is still apparently a movie. I know I'm just as surprised as you are. The latest on the film is that it's title is now simply "Dracula" and Luke Evans has been confirmed to play the lead in the film about the first vampire. Not going to lie, I feel like at this point in time if you name your film "Dracula" you're just asking to be lost in some sort of long IMDB search. You've kind of given up. Just name it "Vampire Movie" and get it over with.

In Real People News: 

I feel like anyone who walks through Time Square and thinks those weirdos dressed up as children's characters are anything but creepy deserve what they get but the NYC police think otherwise because a guy dressed as the Cookie Monster has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child after he pushed around a kid and tried to force folks to give him money. Then again that Cookie Monster always seemed kind of insane so I'm not 100% sure this wasn't the real deal.

A Chicago area Grandmother is in hot water after she allegedly hired her Grandson to take out his Grandfather because she was "sick of him". I don't know why but that sentence just makes me tired. I feel like she was just so tired of picking up socks or something and just wanted to take a nap so she said "Hey Billy, do gam gam a solid and murder Grandpa ok? I just need to get some sleep."

Hey did you watch The Grammy's last night? I didn't But I did take time to view some of the red carpet fashions and if you're wondering these are my scores. B+, C, D-, B-, C, C, F, and F. Yeah I know, I hate Adele too. Especially after reading her tour rider which stated "North American beer is not acceptable". Apparently she only accepts the "best quality European lager beers" like Stella and Peroni to wash her bite size Twix bars down her giant gullet. More for me, Adele! More for me!

Just to confirm a discussion we never had, Ridley Scott has been confirmed to be taking the directing role for "The Counselor". Written by Cormac McCarthy, the film follows a respected lawyer who tries his hand at the drug game... with sexy results. Wait no, terrible, not sexy. Not sexy at all.

If you're looking for more "The Evil Dead" casting news then this is going to be the best Monday of your life. Looks like Lou Taylor Pucci, who I don't know but only hate 1/3 of his name, is in talks to join the reboot. Lou would play a young smarty pants who's curiosity gets the gang into trouble. Whatever the hell that means. Pucci is the part of the name I hate in case you're wondering.

Looks like Universal is circling first time director Gary Shore to take on their new film "Dracula Year Zero". Russell Crowe is in talks to star in the film that tells the original story of Vlad the Impaler and how he eventually was turned into the character that Bram Stoker based is classic character on. Not really fair to pick a first time director. How am I suppose to make stupid comments about a guy I don't know? I bet he wears stupid hats.

Remember 2009's "Legion" about an Angel who comes down from the heavens to save the world? Well Syfy is working on a show based on the film. Cause ya know, everyone loved it. Alright I loved it. I can't even be sarcastic about how much I love it. An old lady swears a lot. How can you not love that?

In Real People News: 

I know I write that these stories make me laugh a lot but this one really did make me laugh out loud. A Kentucky mother punched her 10 year old son in the face during an anger management session. Try to read that without chuckling. It's impossible.

This story about a 40 year old in Ohio who tossed his kid into a dryer as punishment isn't as funny though. Unless you're a real sicko. Then feel free to laugh away in hell.

According to a leaked memo from the good people at Paramount it sounds like a big screen adaption of Max Brooks' novel "World War Z" is even closer to finding its way to theaters. The memo also included a funny video of a monkey peeing in its mouth and a smoking baby. It was a hoot!

Even more pictures of the upcoming AMC zombie miniseries "The Walking Dead" have found their way online. Next week the last set of images will be released and we'll post an animated gif of the entire series. Stay tuned!

"Dracula: Year Zero" is confirmed to move forward and the entire cast will be heading down under to start filming shortly. The flick will school us all on the true origins on everyone's favorite blood sucker. I've already learned he was born the same year as Jesus!

Seth Rogen will reportedly play the role of head ghost in the new Dreamworks animated feature "Boo U". There's not much in the way of details yet on the project but my guess is he'll be lovable and doofy but still win the girl and I'll want to punch him in the face.

It was announced last week that he would be helming "Paranormal Activity 2", which apparently didn't sit well with LG, so they're officially going home and taking their toys with them.
