Horror Headlines: Monday January 17th, 2011

There's new Canadian trailer for "Scream 4" out on the tubes that's chock full of new clips and magic. How you can tell it's Canadian is because they dubbed in a bunch of "aboots" and instead of a knife the ghost faced guy is running around with a bottle of maple syrup. Subtle, I know.

"Atrocious" is a new Spanish found footage flick which doesn't look to far off from your "Paranormal Activity" and "Blair Witch Project". Of course it is a lot more caliente, but that goes without saying. That's the only ignorant thing I'm going to say about the new trailer though, I already filled my daily quota with the maple syrup thing.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is going to direct a new movie called "Wait Till Helen Comes" which focuses on a family that move into a house that use to be a church and discover a ghost. They then whisper creepy things to the ghost like "hey ghost, you sure are spooky, want to go into our new hot tub?". Ya know, because Hewitt has another show called "The Ghost Whisperer". Get it? Comic gold!

There's been enough one sheets for "Hobo With a Shotgun" to choke a camel but I'm a sucker for the old school grindhouse looking type posters so here's this new one. I'm not sure if the film is ever actually going to be coming out but posters are cool, so we'll just keep going with that.

In Real People News: 

Aww that's so cute! A toddler in Florida recently called 911 to get the message that his father was being bad to Santa. The story takes a turn for the worse though when the boy was arrested and is now serving 3 to 4 in a maximum security prison for the false alarm call. On the bright side, his little tear drop tattoo is to die for.

Let this be a lesson to you kids, don't mess with the substitute teacher! Because if you get a nut job like this one you may end up getting punched in the face when he gets fed up with you and the rest of the 8 years olds throwing spit balls.

Brad Anderson, of "Session 9" fame, has signed on to direct "The Living and the Dead" for Solipsist films. The story is about a "monstrous character who engages in the 19th century version of snuff theater, luring innocent poeple in a Grand Guignol of flesh and blood".

"Paranormal Activity" producers ready to sell spec for "The Jealous One".

I'm just as surprised as this guy is that Syfy has yet to make a film about the Mongolian Deathworm. Looks like we're both getting our wish?

Check out the trailer for Rob Hall's web series "Fear Clinic". Hall is fresh off his direct to video slasher "Laid To Rest". This new series will be airing exclusively on FearNET.

In Real People News: 

You may have thought that owning 80 cats had something to do with the fire that destroyed this woman's home, but you'd be wrong... it was actually a colony of ants who were nesting around an electrical outlet. That is some seriously impressive hygiene, right there.

Tough guys think they're going to beat up on a couple of fellas in drag, turns out they're cage fighters on a "fancy dress stag night" out with friends. Fierce ass-kicking ensues.

This is officially the first time I've ever heard of someone being murdered over a BAM-BAM pendant. Or really, anything BAM-BAM related. He must have been a huge Flinstones fan.

People trying support local farmers by buying locally grown marijuana in California are putting financial hurt on Mexican drug cartels. Go Mom & Pop!!

On this day in history: 

1966: Lysergic Acid (LSD) is enrolled on the list of controlled substances.

Trailer For "Paranormal Activity" Goes Online

If there is one thing I love, it's a good horror movie that frightens the crap out of my wife. Despite what you think of "House Of 1,000 Corpses" I will always love it for that fact that to this day I can just say the words "run rabbit run" and creep my better half out. I do this not because I'm a mean person, but because there are very few situations in a marriage where the guy can have the upper hand.
