Red Sea Media has made the smart move of picking up the distribution right to "Squirrels", a new film about a small town being terrorized by the fuzzy little nut munchers. Produced by the same folks that brought you "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" there's no word on a cast yet but I think if Tiffany is free she's a sure fire lock to play the leading lady. Keep your fingers crossed.

Mother of god. Warner Bros has picked up the rights to Ryan Gosling's directorial debut titled "How To Catch a Monster". Need more? Christina Hendricks has signed on as the leading lady for the film about a mother whose son discovers a secret road leading to the underworld. I swear to god my keyboard just burst into flames from all this sex.

Salma Hayek is confirmed to be starring in "Everly", a new film from the one and only Joe Lynch. The film is about a woman who must fight her way through a horde of assassins sent by her mob boss ex. What's the interesting point here is that the entire film will be shot in one room which now that I think of it makes me think this entire thing was just one big creepy way for Joe Lynch to be able to lock himself in a room with Selma Hayek for a month.

Joe Dante is teaming up with Simon Pegg for a big screen adaptation of "Casting the Runes" by M.R. James. The story follows a blogger who's investigating the suicide of a celebrity and the self help guru connected to the death. The story was originally written close to 100 years ago which is amazing because they didn't even have the internet back then so how the hell would anyone know what a blogger is? This James guy must have had ESPN or some crap.

In Real People News: 

A 31 year old sex ed teacher in Texas is accused of having sex with two 13 year old students. Seems kind of obvious really.

A Phoenix woman is under arrest after she killed a man by running him over with her car and then called 911 to report the damage. Yes she was drunk and yes her mug shot is amazing.

Video: Adam Green Shows the Danger of the Honor Bowl

Everyone's favorite creator of "Hatchet" Adam Green is back again with his annual Halloween short film. This year his Greenness schools us on the time honored tradition of the "honor bowl" and the dangers of not respecting it. In short, hilarity ensues, sort of. Not really. Whatever just watch the video and if you don't like it there's a related video of some girl who calls herself QueenofBlendingMUA talking about some contest and painted like a cat that's a lot creepier. Whatever rocks your world sickos.

Horror Headlines: Monday June 14th, 2010

Hollywood loves its unnecessary remakes, so it shouldn't be too surprising that they are looking at Pascal Laugeir's "Martyrs" for the official treatment. What is surprising is that "Twilight" producer Wyck Godfrey is looking at Kristin Stewart to headline.

Breck Eisner thrilled us all with his remake of "The Crazies" and is moving on to some non-horror related fare such as "Escape From New York" and "Flash Gordon". He'll be making his way back to the horror work though as he has taken on the rights to the classic Dracula comic "Blood of the Innocent".

Joe Lynch's upcoming horror comedy "The Knights of Badassdom" just got a whole lot hotter as "Firefly" alum Summer Glau signs on to the cast.

Need some more Sam and Dean Winchester in your life? You better hope so as Warner Brothers Japan is preparing 22 episode "Supernatural: The Animation"! Details on the new show are scarce at this time, but the official site talks of recreating some of the fan favorite episodes of the series as well as some new adventures mixed in.

In Real People News: 

A 16 year old British boy is heading to juvie for four months after microwaving his brother's 1 year old Golden Hamster.

A Wilton man is sentenced to five years in prison after hitting and killing a motorcycle rider in a case of drugged up driving. Despite the happy news of a man getting his just deserts for his crimes, the true horror is the charges of tampering with evidence after he drank his own urine to keep it from being tested for drugs while in the hospital.

On this day in history: 

1648 - Midwife Margaret Jones is hanged in Boston for witchcraft. It is the first such execution for the Massachusetts colony, but not the first in the colonies.

Joe Lynch's Post Halloween Movie Picks

Halloween has come and gone once again my friends. The candy corn is in the discount bin, you can find eggs in the supermarket now and here in NYC the costume shops are all selling porn again. It's a sad time for everyone really.

Clive Barker's comic book "Seduth" will be presented in 3D when it's released in October. The story follows "a man driven by his darkest impulses to oblivion and back after being exposed tot he contents of a priceless diamond".

Picture this: A sitcom called "Coffee & Donuts" starring Joe Lynch and Adam Green. Ya, that was the same reaction I had. Apparently it will be based on Green's first short film, and had originally been pitched to UPN a few years ago. Now that the rights have floated back Green's way, he is pitching it as a vehicle for him and Lynch, and studios are showing interest. This may be enough to get me back into watching regular television. Stay tuned!

Sony has picked up the rights to "[REC]2" from the Toronto International Film Festival. Sony was previously responsible for the remake "Quarantine", as well as releasing the original film on DVD.

First TV spot for "Saw VI". So, it's officially that time of year when your non horror-loving friends start saying "they're really making ANOTHER one of these???".

In Real People News: 

Canadian man jailed for life after 19th DUI. I'd say it's pretty safe to say at that point that he's going to do it again.

This guy was a little smarter. He beat a drunk driving rap by claiming he drank all of the alcohol in the time between when he stopped and when the police got to his car. The court could not prove that he was drunk when he was actually driving, so now he's free. Now THAT takes balls.

On this day in history: 

1939: The Soviet Union invades Poland, to fulfill its end of the secret protocols contained in the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact. They partition the country along pre-decided lines.
