Book Review: Mr. Hands by Gary A Braunbeck

**Important note: NO, this book has nothing to do with the infamous weirdo and horse video by the same name. Just in-case any of you get confused or decide to google "Mr. Hands." I'd definitely add "book" to those search terms - or don't, if you're into that kind of thing. **

Horror Headlines: Friday, February 12th, 2010

Your favorite gravel voiced and bald headed hearth throb Vin Diesel has made a few nerds happy by announcing that he and David Twohy are re-teaming for a third "Riddick" film.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, writers of smash hit "Zombieland" are feeling rather cocky of late. In the same interview we posted earlier in the week, the two authors talk about their dreams of turning the film's universe into a TV show. Sure, it seems far fetched but you can put money on the bet that I'd probably watch it faithfully!

Top Cow comics has put up a trailer for its upcoming motion comics for "The Crazies". It's Friday, you know you'd rather read comics than work anyways.

Good news for you romantic types, there's yet another tween supernatural romance in the works pitting a teenage girl's hormones and a twinkie monster. Sparkling vampires were bad enough, how abouta teenage girl in love with a boy that turns into a wolf every winter? We're one step closer to 'Furry: The Movie' folks.

Lucky McKee and Angela Bettis are prepping for another team up, this time on the sequel to the "The Offspring", "Offspring: The Woman".

In Real People News: 

Two men in the Florida Keys get into a massive brawl over the results of the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for one of the men, his opponent grabbed him by testicles and squeezed until they popped to get out of a headlock.

Shanghai reports an upswing in drug issues with many arrests for the use of ketamine, cocaine and methamphetamine. All this to keep them awake for more hours to play mahjong. And that's no joke.

On this day in history: 

1554 - The sixteen year old Lady Jane Grey, puppet Queen of England for nine days, beheaded in the Tower of London.

The Lost (REVIEW)

The story at the center of Jack Ketchum’s “The Lost” calls to mind true crime tales like “The River’s Edge” and “Say, You Love Satan”. At the center of these stories are charismatic and fractured Borderlines and Sociopaths who exhaust all the morally ambiguous and victimless avenues for eradicating their impotence and pain, and end up committing murder to affirm their fantastic notions of self. Where the film adaptation of ‘The Lost’ differs is that it takes a phenomenological approach to the tragic events and people at its core.
