Horror Headlines: Tuesday December 18th, 2012

"This script is terrible and only the guy who co-wrote 'Predators' can fix it". Something I never thought would be said but apparently someone at Paramount uttered those fateful words because Michael Finch has been picked up to re-write the script for "Hellified", a new film about a group of criminals sent to Hell to stop the end of the world. He's kind of like a superman for movie scripts you aren't going to like.

John C. Reilly can do no wrong in my eyes. Alright I'll admit I never saw that movie where he plays a vampire who runs a carnival, or something like that, but everything I've seen him in has been pure gold. So I'm excited for "Life After Beth", a new zombie comedy flick he's going to star in along with Aubrey Plaza, the depressing girl from "Parks and Recreation". The film is based off of a UK short and will be 100 times better because Reilly is American and we don't drink tea.

According to James Franco himself he probably won't have a role in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" after some shifts at Fox's big boy table. Nothings confirmed but Franco had apparently had a small role in the sequel but is now fairly sure the part has been cut. He then went on to say nobody calls him anymore and he's so lonely. He then sobbed uncontrollably for 45 minutes.

I don't know where the hell this came from but "The American Scream" is now available on DVD and it sounds pretty awesome. The documentary follows 3 different families as they transform their homes into spooky time attractions for the Halloween season. Sounds like a dandy Christmas gift for that special someone on your list. Wait, next week is Christmas? Where the hell have I been!?

And Edward Furlong's 6 year old son has tested positive for cocaine and been taken out of his custody. And at the last second for the father of the year awards.

Chicago! My new home. Land of the deep dish pizza and giant hot dog. Also land of this woman who ran over her boyfriend with her car and then lit his testicles on fire. I've made a terrible mistake.

The Top Ten Horror Movies of 2010

Dieter Laser of The Human Centipede

When the BGH Crew began discussing its nominations for its list of the top ten horror films of the year, one thing became rather obvious. While it's been a year filled with lots of quality horror films -- indeed, some might even say risky films -- there wasn't that one movie that broke away from the crowd to truly establish itself as the best.

"Repo: The Genetic Opera" is coming to The Wings Theatre in NYC this Saturday July 10th. Between this, the heat wave and the inevitable LeBron James rejection that's coming I thank god I'm getting out of the area this weekend. I predict riots in the streets before the second chorus of whatever god awful song opens up that thing.

In preparation for tomorrows release of "Predators" Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal sat down to discuss the filming process and why someone would name their child Nimrod. That second part was cut from the interview I think. Look for it on the Blu-Ray special features though!

A trailer for the new season of the VH1 show "Scream Queens" is online and to be honest is a little disappointing. The contestants will once again compete for a role in the next "Saw" film but no James Gunn this season and from what I can tell no ridiculously over sized fakes breasts. Really I could have let the James Gunn thing go but I'm not sure if I can get past the other.

Hot news for everyone heading out to Comic-Con. The cast of "Dexter" will be doing a panel discussion as well as premiering a new trailer for season 5 which hits Showtime on September 26. There's also going to be a lot of attractive women dressed up in skimpy superhero outfits. But you're probably more excited about the "Dexter" thing. Nerds.

In Real People News: 

Sometimes you just have to stand up for what you believe in. Like this guy out in Georgia who held his mother hostage because she refused to iron his cloths. Good for you buddy, don't back down.

A truck in Rome carrying 2.5 million euros overturned on the highway recently and motorists scooped up the prize. Sounds impressive until you realize 2.5 million euros equals roughly 13 U.S. dollars.

1776 - Col. John Nixon gave the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence to a crowd gathered at Independence Square in Philadelphia.

Brace yourselves, kids: Konami has released an extended trailer for the highly-anticipated "Silent Hill 8", a franchise that desperately needs a hit. I'll be the first to admit there was quite a bit of butt-clenching going on. Those games scare the hell out of me. Seriously.

Sick of documentary-style horror flicks? If so, perhaps the upcoming Chinese genre outing "31 Degrees North Latitude" isn't the film for you. The plot: Scientists venture into the wildnerness to unravel the mystery behind a local legend. Why, that doesn't sound familiar at all!

Once upon a time, I complained about a serious lack of horror/westerns. Now that I've seen the trailer for "The Dead and the Damned", I'm officially retracting my complaint. Please, for the love of God, stop making horror/westerns, especially ones that feature zombies. That includes you, Romero.

Those of you who are still waiting for "Predators" to make its mark in theaters this summer might want to have a gander at this impossibly large gallery of images, many of which include pictures of the titular beasts themselves. As cool as these pictures may be, I shall retain my chin-scratching skepticism.

In Real People News: 

Do you know what goes good with grapes? A pair of angry black widow spiders. I always knew that Whole Foods was plotting to destroy mankind, though until now it was unclear as to how they would achieve this goal. Well played, you healthy bastards.

An ambitious drug trafficker with a questionable amount of ingenuity managed to to smuggle 506 pounds of pot on a plane bound for Ohio. Her secret: Stashing the grass in 13 separate suitcases. You go, girl. You go to prison.

On this day in history: 

1994 - After refusing to turn himself into the police, O.J. Simpson leads authorities on a widely-televised pursuit through Brentwood, California in a white Ford Bronco.

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.

TBS has made a lot of waves lately with their recent Conan O'Brian announcement, but that's not the only news the soon to be major cable player has up its sleeve. In June, they will be bringing us a bit of animated horror comedy with their newly announced series "Neighbors from Hell". Think your neighbors are bad? They can't be as bad as the Hellmans, hailing straight from the netherworld. Hellmans... get it?

The promotions for the Robert Rodriguez sequel "Predators" continues to ramp up with new shots and character profiles. The latest character profile is on Isabella, played by Michelle Rodriguez.

The first high res shots of Josh Brolin as "Jonah Hex" have appeared online. Looking true to character, I still think the movie would be more exciting if we didn't have to mention it also starred Megan Fox.

In Real People News: 

Justin.tv makes the news this week as a 19 year old San Francisco male broadcasts his suicide to hundreds of spectators. Feeling guilty for egging him on, the forum moderator where the 19 year old left his suicide note called the local authorities as the viewers watched the police break in on camera to recover the body.

Lake Tahoe police feared a terrorist event when they caught a 60 year old man parked in a no parking zone. During their investigation, they found a wire with an attached on/off switch in his pocket leading to his anal cavity. It turns out, the wire just lead to the man's vibrating butt plug.

1910 - American original Mark Twain dies of heart failure in Redding, CT.

Horror Headlines: Monday March 15th, 2010

Details have emerged for yet another franchise reboot; this time for "The Howling Reborn". Here's hoping for a Dee Wallace sighting.

Rumors abound this weekend that Joaquin Phoenix may be shedding his homeless side job to portray Edgar Allen Poe in "The Beautiful Cigar Girl".

Director Matt Reeves spoke with MTV giving details on "Cloverfield 2". In true MTV journalistic fashion, these details boil down to 'yah sure, we might do a sequel some day!'.

In Real People News: 

A North Carolina man woke up this morning dealing with his possessive trust issues after being arrested for carving the word "MINE" in his girlfriend's stomach during a violent argument.

Evelyn Boyd decided that she needed to undertake a prayer fast to ask God for help for her husband, her city, the president and more. On the 26th day of her locking herself in her bedroom, her husband found her dead of apparent starvation and other complications due to the fasting.

If you're planning to attend the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival this year, you should definitely check out the the so-called "First Look" screening of the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed action flick "Predators", a film I'm still on the proverbial fence about. Topher Grace and Adrien Brody? Really?

Speaking of Adrien Brody, talented direct Vincenzo Natali's highly-anticipated monster movie "Splice" is set to terrify audiences on June 4th. It's always nice to have a potentially nifty horror flick scheduled for a summer release.

Although I have my doubts as to whether or not this project will ever get off the ground, it would appear that Todd McFarlane is still spreading rumors that another "Spawn" film is in the works. I'm excited about the idea as much as the next nerd, but I'm not going to hold my breath. No sense setting myself up for soul-crushing disappointment.

In Real People News: 

I know I'm supposed to write something extremely witty and marginally hilarious for these articles, but the headline provided for this seemingly innocent story about a drunk driver's encounter with law enforcement officials is funny enough on its own. Trust me on this one.

Although I've seen some incredibly strange things in my lifetime, I've never accidentally stumbled across a naked woman tied to a tree. My life suddenly feels inadequate, and I am ashamed of myself. I think I need to get out more.

On this day in history: 

1991 - Rodney King is brutally assaulted by several LAPD officers, an event which is caught on amateur video.

Video: Danny Glover Kicking It Old School

The 90's, a time of wonder and mystery. Grunge was king, flannel was hip and Danny Glover was America's dance king. Don't remember that last one? Well take a look at the video below which recently surfaced from the archives. In it you'll see Sir Gloves-Alot kicking it old school along with his stable of Predator hoes on the set of "Predator 2". I don't know why it took so long for this to come out but I hope there's more. In fact I hope we'll see a rap battle between Glover, Mel Gibson and Joe Pesci from the set of "Lethal Weapon 3" sometime soon.
