from dusk till dawn

Horror Headlines: Thursday January 30th, 2014

Content Film has announced they will once again be teaming up with the folks that brought you "The Machine" to bring you "Don't Knock Twice". Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, who I've never met in person in case you were wondering, will pen the script for the film which will apparently be about some sort of spooky urban legend type thing. What I'm saying is details are light, but I assume knocking will be involved.

Anyone want to see the trailer for the upcoming "From Dusk Till Dawn" TV show? No, no one does. That was a trick question. The show premieres on March 11th on the El Rey Network, which is apparently a thing, and pretty much follows the same plot at the 1996 Robert Rodriguez flick. Still think you might want to see it? What if I told you Rodriguez has nothing to do with the project? That did it? Glad I could help.

Raven Banner Entertainment has dropped news that they will be moving forward with a big screen adaptation of Clive Barker's "Jacqueline Ess: Her Will And Testament". The short story tells the tale of a young lass who has the ability to change people's shape with her mind. So ya know, big peepees come into play I assume. Production is set to begin sometime this fall.

Apparently during my crazy leave it was announced that "Annabelle", the creepy doll from "The Conjuring" would be getting it's own spin off film. Well it looks like Eric Ladin and Brian Howe have both been added to the cast. I have no idea if this is good news or not. I don't know who these guys are. I don't know what this movie is about. I'm so frightened and confused by what else I might have missed.

In Real People News: 

A Philadelphia man is under arrest after he crashed his car into a fried chicken restaurant and then got out of his car, stripped down to nothing and went to town on himself. Because ya know, you're not going to want to do that after you get a belly full of fried chicken.

I've always wondered what would happen if you were getting mugged and it turned out you really didn't have any money. Well if you're in Florida apparently you get slapped in the face with a dick. I'm not surprised by this at all honestly.

Does a "From Dusk Till Dawn" TV series that Robert Rodriguez will be heavily involved in sound awesome to you? I know me too! What if I told you it was going to be on Univision and I was 99% sure it'll be in Spanish? I know I don't know Spanish either but I watch the channel all the time to! I love their stripper/news anchors and the project is just getting off the ground so I think we have enough time to learn the language so we're all going to be good here.

Magnolia Pictures has done gone and picked up the rights to the Israeli film "Big Bad Wolves". The film is written and directed by Aharon Keshales tracks the lives of three men caught up in a series of brutal murders. Keshales also helmed 2010's underground hit "Rabies", which apparently had a lot of really attractive woman in it but also had subtitles so I'm still not sure what to do there.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo , the guy who directed "28 Weeks Later", has been confirmed to direct "Villain", a new film about two brothers who find themselves lost in the woods. Shia LaBeouf is also set to star in the film and he knows robots so I think we got a winner on our hands here.

Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass are set to start in a new horror flick from Lionsgate titled "Reawakening". The film focuses on a doctor who discovers how to bring people back to life and the events that follow after he uses it on his daughter. I'm sure there's awful results but if something like this ever comes to be I think we all know that Michael Douglas will be the first one on our lists to bring back to life. Miss you man.

Where do people accidentally shot their friends in the leg while waiting in line at Starbucks? You bet your sweet ass it's Florida.

Here's a woman who stabbed her boyfriend after he farted in her face during an argument. Yes also in Florida.

9 Vampire Hunters Not Named "Abraham"

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Opening this weekend is the bizarrely titled but conceptually interesting "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". His notoriety instantaneously makes the 16th President of the United States the most famous vampire slayer amongst his peers. Though it remains to be seen whether or not the film itself can live up to some of the other impressive slayers, killers and purifiers in the realm of cinema vampire lore. So in case Mr. Lincoln doesn't satisfy your bloodlust, here are 9 Essential Vampire Hunter Films.

Snapshots: "From Dusk Till Dawn" - 1996

Remember the days before Clooney cared about Oscars?

Netflix Streaming Friday - "From Dusk Till Dawn"

Vampires are all the rage these days. "Twilight", "True Blood", "Vampire Diaries", pretty much anywhere you turn, you can find something vampire related. Problem is, it pretty much all sucks.

Remember when vampires were cool? How they'd turn into giant bats and trick Winona Ryder into making out with another chick and a werewolf like in "Bram Stoker's Dracula"? Or when they were cursed African Princes with awesome wardrobes like in "Blacula"? Or hell, when they were played by guys Leslie Neilsen or Eddie Murphy? Yeah, those were the days.

Horror Headlines: Thursday March 17th, 2011

The ghost-tastic flick "The Apparition" has had its release date pushed from 2011 to an unnamed date in 2012. No reason has been released for the push but seeing how it's directed by Todd Lincoln who's previous credits include visual effects on "From Dusk Till Dawn" and stars a bunch of teenage extras from other movies I'm guessing they want to put it up against "Avatar 2" just to F with the man.

People seem to be getting sick of 3D movies and paranormal flicks but how could you fail with a paranormal 3D joint? The answer is you can't. "Paranormal Xperience 3D" revolves around a group of teens (awesome!) trapped in a town being terrorized by an evil doctor. If the twist at the end of this is that the doctor is a ghost then putting the word "paranormal" in the title might of been a bad idea.

Little known fact, they have TV's in New Zealand. I know I was shocked too! Not only that they apparently have their own shows. Like "The Tribe" which is about group of people who have lived through a virus that's killed off most of Earth's population and how they deal with robots and giant locusts. Sounds pretty good already but it's being adapted for the big screen here in the US so we're going to make it even better. You're welcome Kiwi's!

My wife and I have agreed that no matter what sex our seventh child is we will name him or her Shia LaBeouf. That's just how big of fans we are. So we're both pumped to find out that he will star in a new big screen adaptation of Joe Hill's, son of Stephan King, novel "Horns". The basic plot is LaBeouf wakes up after a night of boozing to find he's sprouted horns. I don't get the title.

In Real People News: 

Some people who come into a large sum of money go nuts and just spend it all. But this guy in Ohio wasn't going to let his big bank robbery score go to his head. No he hopped on the bus and headed home, not even springing for a cab. Of course he was immediately caught but still, his heart was in the right place.

Residents of Bennington Vermont are living in fear after a number of residents have been attacked but one lone gray squirrel. One shoveler was attacked tree times but the little bushy tailed rat and a number of other reports have been filed. What do you have to say about this crap, PETA? That's what I though.

Horror Headlines: Friday December 16th, 2010

Eric Bana is the newest name being tossed around to play the bearded one in the big screen adaptation of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". Much to my surprise Eric Bana is not the guy who played Superman in the 90's on that show with the girl form "Desperate Housewives". Apparently that was Dean Cain. Who knew.

Here's a movie called "Limitless" where Bradley Cooper takes a super drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain. He of course uses this power to sleep with tons of women which I am pretty sure is something the current Bradley Cooper can do without even having to use 10% of his brain. Thanks Hollywood, maybe next you can come up with a movie about how I'll never be skinny again.

"I Saw the Devil" and all I got was this lousy t-shirt! I'm 99% sure I've used that joke before but it doesn't matter, this serial killer flick from the far east will hit limited theaters and VOD on March 4th. Feel free to tell me if the far east comment was racist, I don't think so but I've been wrong before.

"From Disk Till Dawn" and "Amityville Horror", two films which I was pretty sure already had sequels, are slated to see theatrical followups sometime in the near future. This is all according to a press release from The Weinstein Company and I didn't get it so who knows how trustworthy it is. Maybe they lost my gmail account though. Call me, guys!

In Real People News: 

It's always sad when you hear about a kid's Christmas presents being stolen. Especially when it turns out it's their mother stole the presents to trade for crack. Although it's heartwarming when a mother gets her crack, so the two sort of negate each other.

I don't know what it is about women but the moment a fight breaks out they shoot right for the nipples. Like this woman who ripped off her daughter-in-law's nipple after she got drunk and started a fight. Happens all the time.
