Horror Headlines: Tuesday April 6th, 2010

I'll go ahead and say this is a 'thing' now; revamping literary classics to turn them into monster mashups. The newest book to the add to the pile is Sheri Borwning Erwin's "Jane Slayre". If you couldn't tell by the clever title, this is a simple case of turning Charlotte Brontes "Jane Eyre" into a vampire slayer. At this rate, we're only months away from "Of Mice and Monsters".

Are you an Anne Rice fan? Then this is good news for you. Bluewater Comics has announced that Ms. Rice will be the next subject of their Female Force line of biography comics.

While the title of "Red Sonja", Conan's flame haired female counterpart, was previously given to Rose McGowan and director Douglas Aarniokosk, those plans have been scrapped. In fact, they're even shopping for a new writer which pretty much spells out the fact that this latest reboot was a complete disaster. What could be seen as good news by some and questionable news by many is word that Millennium Films has now offered the role to Megan Fox.

In a completely unexpected turn, genre favorite Danny Trejo has announced plans to self finance a basketball drama. Focused on the Utah Jazz player Paul Millsap and his uncle/agent DeAngelo Simmons who kept the player off the streets of Louisiana, the film is tentatively titled "Ambition". Which is apt for Trejo's attempt at self financing this movie as well.

In Real People News: 

A Vermont Policeman opted for some target practice as he fired a pepperball gun repeatedly at an inmate. At an inmate who was locked in his cell.

Uganda has a growing problem that has caused the government to form task forces and start a poster campaign to warn of the dangers. The problem? Human sacrifice.

New "Jennifer's Body" Clip

To me “Jennifer’s Body” pretty much has one thing going for it, it’s got Megan Fox running around in skimpy outfits. Alright two, that Amanda Seyfried isn’t too shabby either. Perhaps I’m being a little bit of what the ladies would call a “pig” but after watching a clip from the film that was recently released I don’t think I’m too far off.

What you get is pretty much what you’d expect. Megan Fox prancing around and some little Green Day look alike getting all flustered. No blood, no gore and no fun. My expectations for the rest of the film aren’t very high.

Spanish Poster For "Jennifer's Body"

In case you weren't already hot and bothered by all of the promotion surrounding the upcoming Megan Fox vehicle "Jennifer's Body," behold the Spanish version of the film's theatrical poster. Regardless of how spectacular you think the picture's going to be, you've got to hand it to the marketing team's alluring campaign. They know why you're going to watch, and they're not above exploiting that fact. Way to go!

"Jennifer's Body" opens on September 18th.

Horror Headlines: Monday June 22nd, 2009

Until Rob Zombie changes his mind, this is the official one-sheet for "Halloween 2". I actually like it, although they clearly haven't fired the lettering guy from the last poster that ended up being a disaster. Could that text at the top possibly be real?

Tons of pictures from a recent "Night of the Creeps" reunion, being filmed for the upcoming DVD. Check the Flickr set at the link.

Wes Craven says he's not quite finished shooting "25/8" yet, as they may go back for some reshoots in July. Then he's hoping to have everything finished for a possible late '09/early 2010 release.

Megan Fox talks about "Jennifer's Body", including the fact that she was not able to deviate from Diablo Cody's script one single word, because Diablo Cody fancies herself the greatest screenwriter in the world.

Paul Schrader pens remake to "Tomie", the Japanese horror series with 7 sequels. I've heard of these films but have never seen any, can one of our readers fill us in in the comments?

In Real People News: 

Cop pulls gun on Mcdonald's employees because he was convinced they were moving slowly on purpose to piss him off. Sure thing sir, one spit-burger coming right up.

Iraq is being overrun by a plague of snakes. Yikes. There's some nightmare fuel for you on this Monday morning.

On this day in history: 

1633: The Holy Office in Rome forces Galileo Galilei to recant his scientific view that the Sun, not the Earth, is the center of the Universe: "I abjure with a sincere heart and unfeigned faith these errors and heresies, and I curse and detest them as well as any other error, heresy or sect contrary to the Holy Catholic Church."
