Horror Headlines: New Year's Even, 2009

Underground gore fanatic and influential genre film critic Chas. Balun has passed away at the age of 61. He will be missed. And if you haven't read "Horror Holocaust," do so immediately.

Good news for those who still read books: W.W. Norton & Co will release an english language adapation of Ryu Murakami's "Audition" in June of 2010. The book, of course, was the foundation for the Takashi Miike movie of the same name.

Inexplicably excited about the upcoming remake of "The Wolfman?" To help fuel your wavering interest, Universal has launched the official website, which comes complete with a trailer and an assortment of time-wasting materials. Don't pretend like you've got something better to do.

In Real People News: 

Funeral Home Management 101: When you're preparing to cremate a corpse, you might want to make sure you're deep frying the right dead guy. People tend to get upset about things like that.

The next time you and your family are suffering from boredom, try lighting yourselves on fire in front of a video camera. You might get a TV show.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday August 25th, 2009

This morning brings the news that 2010 will see an "Exorcist" Blu-ray, with both existing cuts of the film.

Check out this "age restricted" clip from "Sorority Row". It's not restricted for the reason(s) I would have liked, but it's a slow news day so we'll take what we can get.

Hey guess what, there's literally a white horse in "Halloween 2". And why shouldn't there be. Ya, no, this is going to be great.

"Train", the film that was originally a remake of "Terror Train" but then turned out not to be, will be going direct to DVD on November 17th. The film stars Thora Birch, so at least it's got that going for it.

In Real People News: 

When the department bought their officers shiny new stunguns, I'm sure they weren't picturing they'd start out with them by lighting a hobo on fire. But hey, at least it's a good story.

The lesson is clear here, if you "snitch" on someone, this bizarrely calm woman will dismember you and make you watch. So, that's pretty good motivation not to be a snitch.

You can sort of chalk the first time this kid set his friend on fire up to a youthful mistake, but it's a little harder to say that about the second time.

On this day in history: 

1835: The New York Sun publishes stunning revelations that Sir John Hershel has observed little men living on the surface of the moon. The stories, now generally believed to be false, brings the paper record circulation.
