ghostbusters 3

Horror Headlines: Wednesday December 30th, 2009

While still far from an official announcement, in a recent interview with "Heeb Magazine" Harold Ramis declares that "Ghostbusters 3" will be coming in 2011.

In a further effort to show you the entirety of the upcoming "Daybreakers" in frame by frame form, there is now an entire gallery open for you to peruse snapshots of the film's vampires.

Indie film efforts are usually a fairly brave endeavor for film makers. When decide to take on a post-apocalyptic setting with little money, its even more brave. Judging from the trailer for the upcoming post oil collapse adventure "Downstream", these guys may have actually pulled it off.

In Real People News: 

A Las Vegas strip club is taking ideas from the Pope this week, as they attempt a brazen new advertising technique. A stripper being driven around underneath a plexiglass dome a la the Pope-mobile is threatening to cause traffic problems in Vegas, and soon Portland Oregon.

100 teens descended upon the Westfield Mall Saturday night, breaking into an impromptu mosh pit. Two of the teens were eventually arrested for inciting the ruckus.

Remember that rumor earlier this week about Bill Murray playing a ghost in "Ghostbusters 3"? Turns out Sigourney Weaver was just having a little fun at your expense. Oh, Sigourney!

Writer/director Victor Salva really hopes that "Jeeper Creepers 3" will have a proper theatrical release. MGM, meanwhile, isn't so sure.

Although it isn't technically a horror film, it's worth noting that the new trailer for Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" has appeared online. Honestly, I'm pretty excited about this one.

Additionally, the latest trailer for the high-concept remake of "Clash of the Titans" features a tasty little glimpse of the updated Medusa and the Kraken. My skepticism is quickly waning.

In Real People News: 

If you think you can rip off the library, think again. An Iowa woman was jailed for not returning the 53 movies she'd borrowed from her local branch.

After flashing her breasts at on-coming traffic, a New Zealand teen is struck by a distracted driver. I don't think they cover this sort of thing in Driver's Ed.

Impaling yourself on a wooden fence is bad enough. Having to wait over 45 minutes for help to arrive is something else entirely. Ouch.

On this day in history: 

1969 - Project Blue Book, the branch of the military that investigated UFO sightings, is reportedly terminated.

MTV announces plans and casting info for their upcoming "Teen Wolf" TV series adaptation. Yes, you read that right.

Out promoting her upcoming movie "Avatar" that you may have heard of, Sigourney Weaver drops some possible plot bombs pertaining to "Ghostbusters 3". These are pretty juicy details, so I will leave them out of this post. If you're intrigued as to the future of Peter Venkman and Oscar the baby? Be sure to click through.

In Real People News: 

A 23 year old man dies during an arrest and search by local police. It turns out, his the huge bag of weed that he tried to swallow didn't go down as easily as he thought it would.

A drunken Chinese boy mystifies doctors as he magically changes the channel on the television every time he rolls over. Further testing proved that the magic came from the remote control lodged in his anus.

Ben Ferrett, a 27 year old South Carolina man, has been awarded compensation in court. He's being compensated for passing out at a party while his so called friend poured super glue into his ear and butt crack.

Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell" has officially been rated PG-13. Apparently there are people surprised by this... haven't you seen the trailer?

Poster for that French zombie film "Mutants" I told you about last week. I'm sure it doesn't mean the same thing in English, but I was really intrigued by the words "PLUS TARD" on the poster. That's a new one.

Akroyd gives more details on "Ghostbusters 3". Apparently the "young recruits" we've mentioned will be "cadets" at some kind of academy. That is AWESOME. He also says that they are going to do everything they can to get Sigourney Weaver on board, who seems to be the last holdout in restarting the franchise.

The plot is pretty standard but the title isn't. Today's awesome indie title award goes to Albino Farm. That is all.

Ron Perlman says they'll probably be shooting "Bubba Nosferatu" this Fall. I still don't think he'll make a great Elvis, but since he's terrifying I'm pretty sure he wins every argument no matter what.

If you live in New York or Las Angeles, you will see a teaser for Rob Zombie's "H2" before "Crank 2" this weekend. If you're not in those areas, tough luck. You will see Amy Smart's boobs though, and that is the greatest gift anyone could ask for.

In Real People News: 

The founders of The Pirate Bay, one of the world's largest Torrent tracking sites, have been on trial for some time now in Sweden over the breaking of copyright law. Today the trial ended with each of the founders being fined 3.6 million each, and being sent to jail for one year. The case is expected to be appealed.

Moral of this story, don't try to rob a hairdresser in Russia. She's liable to beat your ass, tie you up, kidnap you and make you her sex slave for 2 days straight. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

Bush Administration memos on torture released by the Obama administration revealed today that they had authorized "putting insects inside a confinement box" as a method of interrogation. Who knew they were taking cues from Jigsaw and Fear Factor! And you thought they were culturally inept.

Just when I thought I had heard of all the most embarrassing ways to die, here comes British Comedian Mark Cassidy with this gem: Overdosing on nitrous oxide (laughing gas) while watching internet porn. [golf clap]

On this day in history: 

1965: The FBI Laboratory in Washington reports their inability to make out the vocals on the hit single "Louie Louie." Thus, the Bureau is unable to determine whether the record constitutes obscene matter.

Fresh off the news of Freddy being cast in the "Nightmare on Elm St." remake, comes news that Kyle Gallner is now in talks to sign on as "Quentin the podcaster". Gallner recently gave an impressive turn in "The Haunting in Connecticut", a film where I would honestly say he outshined Virginia Madsen, an Oscar nominee. So, this casting news is good to me.

"Fanboys" director Kyle Newman to step in to direct "War Monkeys", after the original director Kevin Munroe had to bow out due to "scheduling conflicts". "War Monkeys" is about two janitors who get stuck in a government research facility over Christmas holiday who have accidentally released war-trained Rhesus monkeys. Wackiness and (presumably) carnage ensues.

Bill Zane as a crazy bald magician? Sure thing. While I'm on the subject, whatever happened to his sister? Remember "Freddy's Dead"? I wonder where she's at these days.

Apparently when Harold Raimis says that the entire original cast will return for "Ghostbusters 3", that includes Rick Moranis. That of course means they can only start shooting once his latest direct to video sequel for "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" wraps up... but I think he'll make the time.

The writer of the "IT" remake speaks, and claims the picture is being written for a "Hard R". Sounds pretty awesome to me, although I'm not sure my brain is prepared for R-Rated scary clown action.

In Real People News: 

I'm not going to say that I have NO sympathy for someone who dies from getting silicone injected into their thighs and butt from an UNLICENSED FRIEND... but... no, I am saying that actually. That's about the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Consider Darwin pleased.

Thank God police are doing really important stuff to keep us safe, like breaking up massively organized pillow fights. What would we ever do without them?

Google street-view car attacked! How much do you want to bet that these people "disappeared" soon after attacking the car... you don't mess with Mother Google, people, you just don't.

On this day in history: 

1990: Police trace a series of obscene phone calls to the president's private White House telephone. The caller turns out to be the president of American University in Washington, Richard E. Berendzen, who was apparently hung up over some personal ad. He is later forced to resign his position but is never charged with any crime.
