Horror Headlines: Thursday August 13th, 2009

Looks like there's another "Riddick" movie coming our way in the future... because if it's one thing we all need, it's more Vin Diesel??

The remake of "The Legend of Boggy Creek" has a cast. In other news, "The Legend of Boggy Creek" is being remade? There aren't even words to describe this remake disease anymore.

New "Sorority Row" poster, again, utilizing it's biggest um... "assets". I'm ashamed to say it's sort of working on me.

Brian Singer might be directing a "sequel" to the 70's "Battlestar Galactica" series? Doesn't that seem odd when the Syfy series actually has a fairly big following? Nothing is concrete at this point, but the rumor is that Universal is pursuing Singer to produce and possibly direct the film.

Here's a cool story... Clive Barker to produce television series penned by Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton, who wrote and directed "The Collector" which just came out recently. The series is about a "haunted hotel". Sounds pretty sweet!

In Real People News: 

Next time someone tells you American television is out of control, you could probably point them in the direction of this Brazilian fellow who was just arrested for having murdering people, for the sole purpose of having gruesome murders to report on his crime show. Pretty sure there's a movie script in there somewhere... have at it writers!

Live in California? Love testicles? Well you're in luck, as Santa Cruz County is about to hold their first ever "testicle festival". At the festival, farmers and ranchers will be serving up all different kinds of animal nuts. Enjoy!

On this day in history: 

1521: After an 80-day siege, Spanish conquistador Hernando Cort├ęs captures Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire. When the Spaniards fail to discover Montezuma's treasure, they torture Cuauhtemoc by pouring hot oil over his feet. The emperor responds by asking, "Am I on a bed of roses?" They hang him three years later.

Videochat With the Writers of "The Collector"

Do you recognize these bone heads? If so, you probably already know that they are the writer/director team who so graciously brought us "Saw III, IV, V", and the recently reviewed "The Collector."

Well, this Wednesday, you have an opportunity to ask them all of your deepest, darkest questions through a live videochat, as long as you have a Facebook or Twitter account.

The Collector (REVIEW)

We are well past the halfway point of summer, and consequently the theatrical drought that has defined the past few months. From now through October there's nearly one if not two genre releases a week, and one can't help but notice that most of them are sequels or remakes. As such, the original properties tend to stick out quite a bit, and "The Collector" has drummed up a modicum of interest of late because of this. Unfortunately, horror fans looking for a breath of creativity before the oncoming rehash binge may find themselves a bit disappointed when all is said and done.
