Horror Headlines: Friday August 28th, 2009

Eric's on the road and Louis is on the move! So instead of Fowler Friday this week you get stuck with me, the old man on the block! I Casey hereby dub this..."Fogey Friday".

Not wanting to be permanently tied to "Twilight", Director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Emile Hirsch are in early talks for a big screen version of "Hamlet". The twist being, both parties are dropping hints that their "Hamlet" will be of the suspense/horror variety. Here's hoping Shakespeare doesn't sparkle.

Rob Zombie has announced his next movie plans, yet another remake, this time of genre classic "The Blob". "My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing, that's the first thing I want to change," Zombie stated in a recent interview. It begs the question; has this guy actually seen 'the blob'?

Deborah Ann Woll, red headed teen-aged vamp of HBO's "True Blood" has signed on for indie supernatural thriller "Little Murder". The film takes place in a post Katrina south and follows a disgraced detective on the hunt of a killer, with the help dead Cellist's ghost.

In case you weren't aware, there's a new movie out today called "H2" directed by Rob Zombie! Fearing that they were too lax in their marketing push, Zombie and crew have released a new motion poster for "H2". Before you click the link, I must warn you; it contains spoilers. Michael Myers stabs people!

In Real People News: 

Bolivia has officially upped its tourist draw; the town of La Paz has opened the worlds first Cocaine bar! You can choose between normal and extra strong varieties. At the same time, US authorities announced a shocking drop in underground raves across the country.

On this day in history: 

1991: Mikhail Gorbachev resigns as Secretary of the Soviet Communist Party and heralds the beginning of the fall of the Soviet Union.

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.

Unused "Halloween II" Trailer, Oi Vay

I thought long and hard about how to not come off as just hating Rob Zombie with this post but you know what, I just can’t do it. The video you see below is apparently an unused trailer for “Halloween II” which finally sees the light of day next Friday. For the most part it’s a lot of the same shots you’ve already seen. Because of this I was fine with the trailer, that is until the 1:39 mark hit. Then Zombie had to go and throw in the fucking Moody Blues!

Horror Headlines: Friday August 7th, 2009

Can we all agree that Fowler Fridays are the sexiest day of the BGH week? I do my best to add a bit of sexy Latin flava to the proceedings. Kinda like that Santana/Rob Thomas collaboration “Smooth”. As a matter of fact, let's consider me Santana and BGH Rob Thomas.

The most anticipated, and let's be honest, probably best, horror film of 2009, Halloween 2, has been rated R by the MPAA for “strong brutal bloody violence throughout, terror, disturbing graphic images, language, some crude sexual content, and nudity” . To me, that's a Tuesday. You know the funny thing about horror fans? For all their griping and bitching, you know they're gonna be there opening weekend for this. Even mice are smart enough not keep touching the feeder bar if it keeps electrocuting them. Maybe that's why I think people decrying the flick are just doing it to get attention...ERIC.

Night of the Demons, or, as I call it be “Night of the Semens”, because I will undoubtedly be masturbating to Diora Baird as soon as it hits DVD, has sadly been pushed back from October 9 to February 2010. Hold tight, L'il Louis...hold tight.

Simon & Schuster has staked out September 29th for the release of their Hellraiser/Clive Barker tribute book Hellbound Hearts, featuring Cenobite tales from Neil Gaiman, Steve Niles, Richard Christian Matheson, Mike Mignola and, um, Mick Garris, who's pinning a story called “Hellbound Hollywood”, which I'm pretty sure is based on a Stephen King short story. Probably “Trucks”.

In Real People News: 

I really feel like the ocean is rebelling against us in the most horrific of ways. First floating blobs of goo, giant catfish and flying squid...now we have logs covered in slimy tentacles washing up in Wales. Imagine peacefully swimming, enjoying yourself, basking in the sun, only to have that brush up against your back, turning around to find a faceful of tentacles in your mouth. It's like something from a Mick Garris movie.

A dog in Northwest China is suspected of starting an outbreak of pneumonic plague. Those same sources also said they suspected the dog of being “Very very derishious. Ah so!”

You know how Big Lots have been selling great DVD titles for $3 recently, like Tales from the Crypt season one through seven, FOR THREE BUCKS? Many of us have been wondering where they legendary closeouts superstore are getting these titles from...could this be the answer? Little bit of legal advice guys: the defense “they fell off the back of the truck” usually doesn't work. Believe me, I learned this the hard way when I was running Coors from Texarkana to Georgia for Big Enos and Little Enos.

On this day in history: 

In 1986, William J. Schroeder died after living 620 days with the Jarvik 7 artificial heart. NOT SUCH A BIG MAN NOW, ARE YA JARVIK?!?!

Michael Myers Invades Your Photos

Well it’s Monday and we’re just a day shy of being a month away from the release of Rob Zombie’s “Halloween II”. And what better way to spend your Monday than placing Michael Myers in pictures of you and your loved ones. Check out H2TrickOrTreat.com and waste the rest of your day posting up your creations in the comments below. Enjoy!

Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 22nd, 2009

Eliza Dushku starring film "Open Graves" premieres on the Syfy channel on September 19th. I have no idea what it's about but every production still has her in a bikini. I'm onto your game, Syfy.

Rob Zombie has just locked his edit of "Halloween 2", and is sending it off for all the usual post processing jazz. Oh, and he posted a picture of Michael Myers giving us the finger... he's so wild and edgy, that guy.

I suppose this is accurate considering the source... but Variety reports that Sam Raimi will be directing "Warcraft", the big budget adaptation of the popular MMO World of Warcraft. Whoa.

The effects guys behind the "Nightmare on Elm St." remake describe Freddy's look as more of a recovered burn victim. They also talk in this report about Jackie Earle Haley having a smaller nose than Robert Englund, and how that played into the makeup. Pretty decent read if you're interested.

Two more stills from "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Break". Good news, the party man is back!

In Real People News: 

Nothing to see here folks, just another case of a teenager paying his bi-sexual friend he met in a furry chatroom to kill his parents and bite off his penis. Holy Moses, I need to sit down for a minute after writing that sentence.

Don't huff gas if you intend on getting tased... you might just burst into flames, and that wouldn't be good for anyone.

On this day in history: 

1587: Roanoke, the colony founded by Sir Walter Raleigh, is found to be missing.

We'll be recording this week's podcast tonight, with the topic of choice being David Lynch's cult classic "Eraserhead". If you have any last minute thoughts, be sure to hit us up on the contact page or send us a message on Twitter.

The release date for the "Hellraiser" remake has been changed from 2009 to "To Be Announced". According to Box Office Mojo, the official title is "Clive Barker Presents: Hellraiser". At least I like the title. Now we'll just have to wait and see how the movie turns out.

The people behind "Sorority Row" listened to me and went with the poster that has all of their actresses laying all over each other. It makes studios happy because it vaguely resembles those cheesy "floating head" posters, and it makes me happy because it's sexy. See, everybody wins.

"Predators" will be "Aliens" only with "Predators". Got it? To expound, the sequel will follow a group of people stranded on a Predator planet who have to deal with the "horrors they encounter".

Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2" is a little less than a month away folks. Up on Zombie's blog today is a still of Sheri Moon Zombie with the new boyhood Michael Myers, Chase Wright Vanek. I haven't been paying that close attention but I believe this is really the first time we've seen this new Myers in an official still... so, there it is.

New stills for "The Final Destination". See that last one there in the theater... how meta! It's like you were murdered in your seat while you were watching the movie in 3D. Get it?

In Real People News: 

Remember kids, even unconvincing, fake mushrooms can get your ass sent to jail. That's an important life lesson right there.

All you need to know about this fight is that at one point someone crapped on someone's back as an offensive move. I smell a new fighting style. Zing!

You know when you pass out drinking with your friends, and when you wake up they've drawn a penis somewhere on your face? this is kind of like that, only it's in prison... and permanent. Ouch.

On this day in history: 

1535: Sir Thomas More, an English politician, is sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered. King Henry VIII takes pity on him and changes the sentence to beheading. Said head is hung on display from London Bridge before being rescued by his daughter a month later.

Horror Headlines: Monday June 22nd, 2009

Until Rob Zombie changes his mind, this is the official one-sheet for "Halloween 2". I actually like it, although they clearly haven't fired the lettering guy from the last poster that ended up being a disaster. Could that text at the top possibly be real?

Tons of pictures from a recent "Night of the Creeps" reunion, being filmed for the upcoming DVD. Check the Flickr set at the link.

Wes Craven says he's not quite finished shooting "25/8" yet, as they may go back for some reshoots in July. Then he's hoping to have everything finished for a possible late '09/early 2010 release.

Megan Fox talks about "Jennifer's Body", including the fact that she was not able to deviate from Diablo Cody's script one single word, because Diablo Cody fancies herself the greatest screenwriter in the world.

Paul Schrader pens remake to "Tomie", the Japanese horror series with 7 sequels. I've heard of these films but have never seen any, can one of our readers fill us in in the comments?

In Real People News: 

Cop pulls gun on Mcdonald's employees because he was convinced they were moving slowly on purpose to piss him off. Sure thing sir, one spit-burger coming right up.

Iraq is being overrun by a plague of snakes. Yikes. There's some nightmare fuel for you on this Monday morning.

On this day in history: 

1633: The Holy Office in Rome forces Galileo Galilei to recant his scientific view that the Sun, not the Earth, is the center of the Universe: "I abjure with a sincere heart and unfeigned faith these errors and heresies, and I curse and detest them as well as any other error, heresy or sect contrary to the Holy Catholic Church."

Horror Headlines: Friday June 19th, 2009

New viral site for Shane Ackerman's "9". No antibiotics required... I swear!

A lot of speculation going on about this "Halloween 2" image. Speculate no more, we'll see it for about 2 seconds in the film... mark my words.

In Real People News: 

3,000 people now testing out The Pirate Bay's new "IPREDator", which based on the name is either a way to download files online while hiding your identity, or the latest tech accessory for pedophiles.

Total psycho... ahem, I mean "Transformers fan", creates life size recreation of "Bumblebee" in his front yard. Don't worry, we're talking cartoon-style folks, he went old school with that shit.

Wisconsin lowers the hunting age to 10. Which is good, because from what I hear shooting stuff is pretty much the only thing to do there.

On this day in history: 

1867: Emperor Maximilian of Mexico is executed by firing squad. Although he bribed the seven riflemen to not shoot him in the head, one did anyway.

Behind The Scenes Of "Halloween 2"

So in this new behind the scenes video from Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2," Zombie earnestly assures us: “There’s no moment where they’re going to go ‘oh yeah been there done that’ the whole movie is like totally fresh”.

We then cut to a clip of Michael Myers popping up in the mirror behind Danielle Harris. Come on Zombie, now you’re just f’in with me.
