The "Paranormal Activity" Frenzy Continues

It's the feel good hit of the summer. Well alright it's Fall but it's still a pretty interesting story. After last week's screenings of "Paranormal Activity" the buzz around the film keeps getting strong. A handful of screenings took place last week for the film, most of which sold out and many people were turned away. A lot of this can be credited to the film's heavy viral marketing campaign.

Horror Headlines: Thursday September 10th, 2009

Some great remake news today. After going through test screenings in preparation for a remake of the moc-doc "Paranormal Activity", Paramount has decided that the film tested so well that there is no need to remake it. The film, which has garnered heavy buzz in the horror community lately, will debut September 25th at Midnight at Fantastic Fest 2009 in Texas.

Ryuhei Kitamura ("Versus", "Midnight Meat Train") is going to be directing an adaptation of one of Stephen Kings "Nightmares & Dreamscapes" tales, titled "Home Delivery".

Victor Salva says "Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral" is finally coming together money wise, with Gina Phillips slated to reprise her role as Trish, 23 years later. He also uses the phrase "you have to keep four or five balls in the air at a time", which might not be the smartest thing for a man with his past to say. Hey, just pointing out the obvious here.

I have an idea for the most annoying film ever. "Fight Club" with werewolves. Oh crap, looks like someone beat me to it.

In Real People News: 

Penis trauma is never funny. When it's a story about a guy who shot himself through his own junk however, it almost is. ALMOST.

This is literally a case of a politician being in bed with a lobbyist. And apparently, spanking one as well.

On this day in history: 

1993: The X-Files premieres on the Fox network. 7.4 million homes tune in to watch the ginger fueld sexual tension.

Ti West says "Cabin Fever 2" isn't really worth seeing. And he's the director, so that's probably not a good thing.

"Paranormal Activity", a film shot entirely from the POV of security cameras in a couple's haunted home, has been given an R rating by the MPAA. No word on release date yet, but this one has been gaining buzz on the festival circuit for a while now, so hopefully we'll hear more soon.

Check out the creature from "Pandorum" in this clip from the film, which gets released September 25th. I haven't heard a lot on this in terms of quality, but it looks highly solid to me.

In Real People News: 

This story is kind of like how Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci call themselves "The Wet Bandits" in "Home Alone". Only I guess this guy would call himself "The Poop Bandit". Doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

Of all the things that would leave a scar on a 9 year old mind, I'm thinking seeing a man climb out of the hole beneath a toilet is probably pretty high up there.

On this day in history: 

1941: At Auschwitz, the Germans conduct a live trial on 600 Russian POWs and 298 sick prisoners to test the lethality of an insecticide known as Zyklon-B. It turns out to be extremely effective at killing people.
