Eric Red, who directed "Body Parts" and is apparently not a Viking, has been picked to direct the big screen adaptation of "Dead Of Night". The film is based on a book by the same name and follows a small town cop trying to fend off a zombie outbreak. Red will also be writing the script for the movie which I assume will also have no Vikings in it. I know, I'm disappointed too.
"Midnight Special" is a really great Creedence Clearwater Revival huh? Good now that we've got that out of the way let's talk about Kirsten Dunst who has just been cast in a movie with the same name. It's about a father who finds out his 8 year old son has supernatural powers. CCR has nothing to do with the movie and as far as I can tell observations I made here are in no way connected. You're welcome.
George A. Romero has wrapped up writing the script for "The Zombie Autopsies" and is shipping it out to studios in the hopes it will be his next directing project. Based on a book by the same name the film focuses on a group of doctors trying to find the cure to a zombie people disease on a small island. Do they still call it "zombie people disease"? I never know what the term is suppose to be these days. Romero kind of looks like Stan Lee doesn't he? Let's move on,
It's the end of summer and not a damn thing is going on so here's an "Evil Dead" themed bikini that you can buy on Etsy. Because who doesn't want a giant face with spiked teeth on their cooch.

If you need a ride home from the police station it's a terrible idea to steal a police car. If you can find a ambulance though by all means go for it.
Ah Missouri. Land of the... well I don't really know to be honest. But I do know you can no longer wear a Obama mask if you're a rodeo clown there. Cause apparently that was a problem.
Some behind the scenes photos from the set of "Piranha 3DD" have popped up online and they're full of giant fishy goodness. Giant fish and other... giant things. Ya know... the giant of giant things you expect to see in "Piranha 3DD".. Boobs. I'm talking about boobs.
And here it is folks, the first trailer for Tom Six's "The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)". The sequel to the little gross out horror movie that could. There's not much in the way of footage and I'm not even sure if this is that actual movie but that doesn't make it any less exciting. The fact that it kind of looks like crap, that makes it less exciting. That and only that.
I had completely forgotten that Anne Hathaway was playing Selena Kyle (aka Catwoman) in "The Dark knight Rises" but here's a gaggle of new set photos and looky loo there she is. Unless someone made a mistake and these are shots from "The Princes Diaries 3". And if that is the case it looks like things take a serious turn for the worse for our Princess. Attacked by homeless people kind of worse. I like the new direction.
Lars Von Trier may or may not be a giant racist but that doesn't make his new movie "Melancholia" look any less awesome. Not even Kirsten Dunst's toothy smile can take away from the visual goodness that is the new trailer for the flick. For those of you not up to speed that movie focuses on a couple celebrating their marriage while another planet heads toward earth. Meaning the world's going to end and Mr. Right isn't going to even get a wedding night with Snaggly Tooth. The lord works in mysterious ways.

I can't imagine anyone has ever won an argument with a cop about getting their drugs back but then again I can't imagine anyone has ever had that argument completely nude, like this sassy chap from Texas. In case you're wondering he still didn't win the argument.
And here's a heartwarming story about a New York man who is wanted by police for sniffing children s feet at a local library. I wonder if that cops had to look up if that was even illegal. If it wasn't it is now.
Alexis Texas, 2011 AVN award winner for her work in "Buttwoman vs. Slutwoman" has officially jumped over into the word of horror with her leading role in "Bloodlust Zombies". The movie focuses on an office that suffers a nutso mutant virus outbreak, with sexy results. A new trailer for the film has hit the tubes and I'll give Alexis this, her fellow pornstar brethren who have crossed over have generally taken on roles as versatile as hooker and stripper, so kudos for going outside the box. Pun intended.
The first clip from Lars von Trier's end of the world movie "Melancholia" has hit the tubes and while it's imposable to see Charlotte Gainsbourg without thinking she's about to destroy someone's genitals I have to say this flick looks fairly tame. Then again there's nothing you can do about the snaggle tooth action that is Kirsten Dunst. Mutilated genitals or not, that toothy mastermind will destroy us all.
Gary Busey? Sure! David Hasselhoff? What in the holy living hell is going on. Of course if I were to ask you to guess what horror movie the Hoff would be cast in the obvious answer would be "Piranha 3DD" so this should come as no surprise but still he's been confirmed for the sequel that will take place at a waterpark. Charlie Sheen is next, right? It can't be far off.
You know that morbidly obese girl at your office who is always saying things like "I sooo need to go on a diet" and "Oh wow I super need to get back to the gym" in the hopes that you'll tell her she looks great and doesn't need to change a thing? Well here's the people from Dimension Films taking to twitter to ask the 15 people (11 if you don't count us on the podcast) that saw "Scream 4" to tweet how bad they want to see a 5th installment. Get on the treadmill Ghostface, your fat ass isn't going to tone itself while you sit on the couch and play "Call of Duty".

A Colorado mother is under arrest after branding her daughter with a hot knife. I understand this is illegal and bad but how else are you suppose to mark your children? How will you tell she's yours when she's in a crowd? The herd will kill us all people! The cows have taken control!
