Horror Headlines: Wednesday April 28th, 2010

It's a new week, that means a new "Predators" character profile. This week you can sneak a peek at Danny Trejo as "Cuchillo".

"Scream IV" makes the news blurbs once again, this time with a bit of a blast from the past. Rumors are starting to float that "Friday the 13th" vet Adrienne King will be in the film. While nothing has been said of the role, my own bet is that we'll see Ms. King in the film's traditional opening montage started by Drew Barrymore.

If you've been patiently waiting for another Paul Bettany fix in his upcoming vampire feature "Priest", prepare to be disappointed. Bumped recently to January 2011 in order to cash in on this whole 3-D craze, the film has now been bumped even further until March 2011. Continued delays? Always a good sign.

In Real People News: 

The Ukraine Parliament handles things a bit differently that most governing bodies. When the parliament approved their lease on Russian Black Sea Fleet for nearly 25 years, opposing law makers erupted by launching a volley of raw eggs at the speaker's podium and lighting smoke bombs in the room.

A 24 year old Oswego man didn't take kindly to his parents asking him to move out of the house. To get back at them, he decided to kill them both with a garden hoe and throw their corpses in the septic tank.

If you've been anticipating the arrival of Jude Law and Forrest Whitaker's futuristic thriller "Repo Men", be sure to check out the new motion comic.

Not content with just movies and now TV, Rob Zombie is returning to the world of comics with "What Ever Happened to Baron Von Shock" from Image Comics. The first reader to locate the drawn Sheri Moon Zombie cameo in the book wins a cookie!... and a boner.

Summit Entertainment is preparing for new franchise hopes with its newly acquired script "The Last Witch Hunter" written by Cory Goodman. So far, Timur Bekmambetov is definitely producing the film and may direct as well. Despite who's on board, there is no way this movie can stack up next to Nic Cage's hair in "Season of the Witch".

"True Blood" fans rejoice; you do not have to wait much longer to sink your teeth into Sookie Stackhouse. HBO has announced that the hit series will return on Sunday June 13th.

In Real People News: 

Did the CIA secretly douse NYC Subway commuters with LSD in 1950? I don't know, but this article on H.P. Arabellis book on CIA Cold War era weapons testing makes a fascinating read regardless.

It's always good to have goals in life. In some cases though, like Donna Simpson's goal of becoming the fattest woman in the world, these goals really need to be re-thought.

On this day in history: 

1792 - At a masquerade ball, a disgruntled Captain Jacob Johan Ankarstroem shoots Swedish King Gustav III near the heart with a bullet composed of lead and carpet tacks.

New images from the upcoming "Piranha 3-D" have shown up online and they're suitably gruesome. Just a fair warning, mangled mammaries ahead!

Now that "Legion" has hit theaters, director Scott Stewart sits down to talk about his next Paul Bettany starring movie, "Priest". Let's hope it's more interesting than his last one.

In Real People News: 

A cable TV exec charged with beheading his wife last year has come up with the clever defense that he cut her head off because she was mean to him.

A Chino Valley man has broken his parole by sexually assaulting his neighbor's dog. Might as well go out in style, I guess.
