let me in

Horror Headlines: Friday July 2nd, 2010

It's almost the 4th of July and in honor of this glorious celebration of freedom we have the trailer for "Let Me In". For those you no familiar with the film let me school you. A couple years back a bunch of Vikings made a movie where a couple of pale kids talked for two and a half hours and one of them was a vampire. Luckily for them we took that boring film, fixed all the problems and now will be offering it to you on October 1st. Let freedom ring!

With "[REC] 2" already out on VOD and finding it's way to a limited theater release next week, co-director Paco Plaza sat down to give his thoughts on where he sees the film franchise going and what his favorite type of sangria is. Knowing that the film is an import from Spain I was pretty excited to see the entire interview is in English. Either that or I can read Spanish now... No that can't be it. U-S-A! U-S-A! Oh the sangria thing was a lie.

I made myself two promises this week. I wouldn't post anything about "Predators" or "Scream 4". Is that one promise actually? I was never good with math. But honestly it's a really slow day and there is squat for other news out there so here's some info on three new cast members who have joined the good fight in "Scream 4". If one of them was a giant monster alien who hunts people this would of tied in nicely.

The internet is all a-buzz with news that Andrew Garfield will play Spiderman in the next installment of the series which is set to be released in 2012. Really I have no idea who the guy is but he was in two episodes of "Dr. Who" apparently so I figured the nerds would be all damp with excitement about the announcement. The real story here is that "Spiderman 4" is going to be in 3D so that means there's a good chance Kirsten Dunst's tooth is going to poke someones eye out. Watch out kids!

In Real People News: 

Ya know what this world is missing? A "Golden Girls" porn parody. I know I'm pissed I didn't think of it too. Now you can stop using your body as a amusement park to old re-runs like a sicko and watch a movie specifically made for your own personal loving. Ya mental patient.

This might be the sweetest story I've ever read. A women in Hungary refuses to eat a cucumber shaped like a penis because it reminds her of her husband too much. And I thought romance was dead. No these aren't tears. Don't look at me!

These new production stills from "A Nightmare on Elm Street" would lead us to believe that the movie could be good and gory. We'll have to wait until April 30th to see if this promise rings true.

In a recent interview, Lloyd Kaufman lets slip that there are a number of Troma movies in talks for possible remakes including "Poultrygeist" and "Class of Nuke 'Em High". One would normally take news like this from Lloyd with a grain of salt, but the "Mother's Day" remake has already wrapped and "The Toxic Avenger" is in talks, so stranger things have happened!

Not to let Sam Worthington steal all the godly thunder, Stephen Dorff has signed on to "War of the Gods", another Greek monster fighting montage.

Though we have yet to lay eyes on any of her genre rolls yet, young actress Chloe Moretz has signed on for the serial killer opus "The Fields". With her upcoming turns as our fanged lead in the upcoming remake "Let Me In" and her ass kicking antics in "Kick-Ass", she sure seems to enjoy the genre work.

Liev Shrieber confirms in an interview that he will not be returning for "Scream IV" since his character was killed off. And here I was thinking some convoluted 'oh he survived!' plot would be a good fit for the "Scream" franchise.

Chloe Moretz, star of the upcoming remake "Let Me In", gives us the scoop on the art direction for the film. Thankfully, Chloe assures us that their vampires "aren't cool".

Screen Gems have begun to leak their info on the upcoming "Quarantine 2" with the announcement that they've hired John Pogue to write and direct as well as their plans to take the sequel in a different direction than its Spanish original.

At least six Jersey women have found themselves hospitalized with infection after trying to get a bit more donk in their badonka-donk. Something tells me that getting the procedures done in an alley with common window caulk wasn't the brightest move they've ever made.

New concept posters for "Let Me In", Matt Reeves remake of the Swedish vampire film "Let The Right One In". Not a whole lot to latch on to at this point considering they haven't even cast the roles yet, but they're semi-interesting if you're invested in how this will turn out.

"Gatekeeper" is a "zomcom" (their words) starring Lea Thompson, Judge Reinhold and Ron Perlman. It has a great cast, but their selling point is sure to make you cringe, "Shaun of the Dead" for American audiences... because you know, us stupid Americans can't watch a movie with British accents (?)

Platinum Dunes will be revealing something big for "A Nightmare on Elm St." at comic-con this year. In his blog, producer Brad Fuller also calls you an "idiot" if you don't think anyone else can play Freddy Krueger. Make your own judgements about his limited vocabulary.

Proably NSFW clip from "Antichrist"... you've been warned.

In Real People News: 

Olympian grows tired of asking his parents for money to fund his bid for glory, opens up brothel to raise money. I think we can all agree this guy deserves a golf clap.

I suppose playing porn out of your window really loudly is one way to get rid of the neighbor children. Of course a dirty robe and a baseball bat is usually pretty effective too, but I'm not against innovation.

Texting teen tumbles into manhole, and the parents are trying to sue the city. Luckily they can't sue me for laughing at their dumbass child.
