Horror Headlines: Friday October 12th, 2012

Three days in a row, son. And they said I'd never amount to anything. Suck it Mr. Reynolds!

NBC has landed "Lost" writer Carlton Cuse (awful name) to pen the script for their new supernatural Western show "The 6th Gun". The show is about... well it's about six guns that hold mystical powers and one of them falls into the hands of a girl and then bad stuff happens or something. I don't know, it's based on a comic, I assume there's giant boobs and other things that are sexy in comic form but only in your mom's basement.

Robert Englund and Malcolm McDowell, two guys who randomly pop up in just about every horror movie and no one has any idea why, together at last in one film. Truth be told there's a solid chance they've been in a movie together before but I have no motivation to do any research on that. The film is "Sanitarium" and it's a new anthology flick about 3 different patients in a mental hospital. It also stars Lou Diamond Phillips who I honestly believe is the nicest man ever invented. He's also La Bamba.

Speaking of people who were on one episode of the short lived "Adam's Family" TV show reboot, Keegan Connor Tracy has been confirmed to be joining the cast of "Bates Motel". The show comes from the folks over at A&E and the pale little minx will play Norman's teacher. We were talking about "The New Adams Family" right?

I loved the show "Deadwood" more than life itself and therefore anything that Ian McShane does is pure gold. You can't argue it. So his guest spot on "American Horror Story: Asylum" will be gold. The show will be gold, the episode will be gold and the tears of joy I cry as he prances across the tiny screen will be solid gold. It's going to hurt.

In Real People News: 

Apparently you can use a stun gun on the pizza delivery guy no matter how funny it is. The things I learn from writing the news... it could fill a website where someone posts horror news with a couple real life news items every day.

Let this be a lesson to you all. When you're cooking your squirrel please don't use a propane torch. This guy in Michigan burned down 8 apartments. You do that crap with a trash can fire like a real hobo.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

I'm probably going to be disappointed here but I'm actually looking forward to "Mockingbird Lane", a new series based on the classic show "The Munsters". I will say Jerry O'Connell is kind of a weird choice for the role of Herman Munster if they're trying to make this version more dark than the original but what do I know. He was rather spellbinding in "Kangaroo Jack".

A horror movie doesn't always need blood, a killer or even jump scares but it better damn well have Malcolm McDowell. Luckily for "Mischief Night", a new flick about a girl being stalked by a killer she starts to have feelings for, it now has some double M action in its cast list. If there's one complaint people have always had about "The Birds" it's that it needs more McDowell.

Mads Mikkelsen might be the most bad ass name ever imagined and I'm not the least bit ashamed to admit I'm petrified of the guy. So I'd venture to say he's a good choice to play the lead role in the upcoming "Hannibal" TV show. He seems like the kind of guy who would actually eat another person just to get into character. To Mads Mikkelsen! A ten-foot-tall, two-ton son of a bitch who could eat a hammer and take a shotgun blast standing!

In Real People News: 

There are numerous places that it's okay to let your kid play. A sandbox, the beach or a jungle gym are some good examples. Railroad tracks on the other hand are a terrible, terrible place to let your kid play and you will go to jail for it. You're welcome.

Sometimes you got to sweet talk a girl. You can't just rush up and ask if you can bed her. I wouldn't peg a woman who would stab a man in the head to be that kind of woman but apparently she is. It's kind of ironic isn't it? Don't you think?

New Trailer for "Suck"

Did "Twilight" and its mopey tween vampires not quite get your blood pumping? Need some more cred when it comes to your fangs and creatures of the night? Then take a look at the new trailer for "Suck", a vampire spoof.

In the film, Malcolm McDowell (“Lost,” A Clockwork Orange, etc.) plays Eddie Van Helsing, a modern day version of Bram Stoker’s infamous Dracula hunter, who is trying to track down vampire rock band The Winners. Kinda reminds me of a certain Aaliyah-starring flick.
