Screenwriter Todd Farmer turns to his blog to explain away the recent delay of "Halloween 3D". He makes sure to get a few digs in on Bob Weinstein as well!

In case you haven't heard, Rob Zombie has been slated to direct an upcoming episode of "CSI: Miami". Via his Myspace blog that doubles as his own personal press conference, Zombie released a teaser image for the episode that shows a few Rob Zombie standards in guest starring roles.

In Real People News: 

The King of the Zulus has declared that he is bringing back circumcision to his people. This alarms South Africa because the Zulu process includes a month long seclusion in nakedness which comes with a high death rate. Among other maladies there have been many reported cases of rotting penises, hypothermia, and HIV due to doctors using the same knife on large groups of boys.

Derek Mears, your current "Jason Voorhees", joins the cast of Robert Rodriguez's "Predators". Which makes sense, because he's just about the most terrifying human being I've ever seen. In real life that is, not so much in "Friday the 13th".

Paramount is Throwing 10 parties to celebrate this weekend's success of "Paranormal Activity". Find out how you can attend at the link.

Check out these early images from John Carpenter's big screen return "The Ward".

Follow me on this one. A script that's been floating around called "Nightcrawlers", has officially gotten a director in Mike Mitchell. It also has a new name... "Monster Squad". Apparently the horror/comedy is being turned into a psuedo/not really remake of Fred Dekker's 80's classic. Here's more info.

In Real People News: 

I always felt a little uncomfortable during drunk taxi rides. Now I know why.

When you hear the phrase "fireworks warehouse in India", you pretty much assume this is how it's going to end.

Oh Halloween... that wonderful time of year when dead bodies are mistaken for Holiday decorations. It's a horror fan's delight really.

On this day in history: 

1982: Maverick carmaker John DeLorean is arrested in Los Angeles with $24M worth of cocaine in his suitcase. The case is later thrown out of court when a judge rules that the FBI sting operation constituted entrapment.

If "Survival of the Dead" goes well, George Romero plans to make more sequels. At this point, "beating a dead horse" doesn't even apply anymore.

Early concept art for "Night of the Living Dead: Origins", the so-called "3D American Anime" remake of the Romero classic. Although, someone a lot nerdier than me is going to have to explain to you what the hell that means.

Danny Trejo scores a role in Robert Rodriguez's "Predators".

In Real People News: 

I don't know what kind of a person would complain about women taking their clothes off at an espresso bar, but I think it's safe to say that they're not very good Americans.

A great way to judge how terrible war can be, is by recalling the ways in which people try to get out of it..

Wow... this is just... wow.

On this day in history: 

1978: A nun at the Vatican discovers the lifeless body of Pope John Paul I, formerly Albino Luciani, in bed. The pontiff had been on the job only 33 days before unexpectedly dying in his sleep, after having taken some sort of pills with dinner. The church refuses to grant an autopsy.

Horror Headlines: Monday August 17th, 2009

This news was from Friday... Robert Downey Jr. is rumored to be in final talks to play the Vampire Lestat in a reboot of "The Vampire Chronicles" by Anne Rice. This had the web abuzz late last week. Since I have no attachment to the stories and have a man-crush on Downey, I'll pretty much be watching this no matter how it turns out.

NBC to adapt "Midnight Mass" comic into a TV series. The story follows a globetrotting couple who solve mysteries and "crimes of the supernatural".

Robert Rodriguez produced "Predators" (directed by Nimrod Antal) will officially begin shooting in September. The story centers on a group of people stuck on the Predator's homeland, which as you can guess doesn't go very well.

New "Zombieland" poster. Saw this trailer again this weekend in front of "District 9". Still looks fun.

In Real People News: 

So ya, as your kids prepare to go back to school, don't forget to teach them the intricacies of anal beer-bongs and snorting vodka shots. Oh you've never done that? Okay well maybe they can teach you then. That should be a fun conversation.

Wow, bitch sliced his throat over a glass of milk. That's some redneck shit right there.

On this day in history: 

1896: Bridget Driscoll, a 44-year-old mother of two, becomes the world's first automobile fatality when she steps in front of a car outside the Crystal Palace in London. At the coroner's inquest, Arthur Edsall states he had been driving at only 4 mph. The motorist also claims that when he saw the pedestrian, he rang his bell and shouted "Stand back!"

We'll be recording this week's podcast tonight, with the topic of choice being David Lynch's cult classic "Eraserhead". If you have any last minute thoughts, be sure to hit us up on the contact page or send us a message on Twitter.

The release date for the "Hellraiser" remake has been changed from 2009 to "To Be Announced". According to Box Office Mojo, the official title is "Clive Barker Presents: Hellraiser". At least I like the title. Now we'll just have to wait and see how the movie turns out.

The people behind "Sorority Row" listened to me and went with the poster that has all of their actresses laying all over each other. It makes studios happy because it vaguely resembles those cheesy "floating head" posters, and it makes me happy because it's sexy. See, everybody wins.

"Predators" will be "Aliens" only with "Predators". Got it? To expound, the sequel will follow a group of people stranded on a Predator planet who have to deal with the "horrors they encounter".

Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2" is a little less than a month away folks. Up on Zombie's blog today is a still of Sheri Moon Zombie with the new boyhood Michael Myers, Chase Wright Vanek. I haven't been paying that close attention but I believe this is really the first time we've seen this new Myers in an official still... so, there it is.

New stills for "The Final Destination". See that last one there in the theater... how meta! It's like you were murdered in your seat while you were watching the movie in 3D. Get it?

In Real People News: 

Remember kids, even unconvincing, fake mushrooms can get your ass sent to jail. That's an important life lesson right there.

All you need to know about this fight is that at one point someone crapped on someone's back as an offensive move. I smell a new fighting style. Zing!

You know when you pass out drinking with your friends, and when you wake up they've drawn a penis somewhere on your face? this is kind of like that, only it's in prison... and permanent. Ouch.

On this day in history: 

1535: Sir Thomas More, an English politician, is sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered. King Henry VIII takes pity on him and changes the sentence to beheading. Said head is hung on display from London Bridge before being rescued by his daughter a month later.

Megan Fox tells MTV that Jonah Hex is going to be amazing. She also says that blah blah blah God damn she's hot.

More pics from Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2". I only post them because the director's cut of "Halloween" is our topic for discussion next week on the podcast, so I have to subject myself to it this weekend. I'm currently devising ways to try and stop the pain while it's playing. Suggestions welcome.

First stills from the Woody Harrelson zombie comedy "Zombieland", or as I like to call it, "a probably fun film that will most assuredly be the official zombie jumping the shark moment when historians look back to this time".

Marcus Nispel officially has the job directing the "Conan" remake. This has Schnaars really broken up, he was really hoping Brett Ratner would get the job.

Some bloody "Piranha 3D" pics. I'm marginally excited for this. I would say "really excited", but let's not forget that "Mirrors" wasn't supposed to be the funniest film of last year. It's hard to tell what will happen when Aja actually tries to be funny... he is French after all.

Neil Marshall is reportedly in talks to direct the "Predators" sequel for Robert Rodriguez. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go find my head because it just blew straight off my fucking shoulders.

In Real People News: 

Guy's arm gets cut off in bakery machine, employers make him work the rest of the day. When authorities finally found out, it was too late to attach the arm. Looks like someone's got some 'splainin to do.

I'm not an expert in human relations, but I'm guessing if you don't want to get your ass kicked by a cop, saying to them "fuck you pig, I'll shit all over you too. I'm going to throw shit in your mouth!" probably isn't the best way to achieve your goal.

Couple who missed downed Air France flight killed in car crash. You can't say Tony Todd didn't warn them in an unreasonably creepy voice.

On this day in history: 

1994: Nicole Brown Simpson and her male friend Ronald Goldman are savagely murdered in front of Simpson's condominium complex in Brentwood, California. The most plausible suspect turns out to be Nicole's estranged husband O.J., who is arrested for the crime a month later. We all pretty much know what happened after that.

It's Eric here, back on the news beat after taking a few days off. My apologies if I end up covering a story that Casey did last week... but if I do, you'll just have to deal with it. That's called "character building", folks.

"Night of the Dead Reanimated" holds a "video art gallery" featuring some of the artists in their rendition of the Romero classic. That actually sounds like a great idea.

Yvonne Strahovski from "Chuck" to star in survivalist horror film called "The Canyon". The plot deals with a couple honeymooning in the Grand Canyon, who end up just trying to survive after meeting a "charismatic and mysterious guide".

Word from Robert Rodriguez's camp is that "Predators" will be a sequel and not a remake. There are also rumblings that they're trying to get Arnold Schwarzenegger back in some type of extended cameo, but we'll see how that turns out.

Not sure this is good news, but "Saw VI" director Kevin Gruetert calls his post production experience "mind numbingly complex". Ya, this should be interesting.

Before being released on DVD in October, Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will be doing a festival run, where you might be able to check it out if you live in one of the corresponding areas.

In Real People News: 

Either David Carradine died from some type of auto-erotic asphyxiation, or the most complicated game of Cat's Cradle ever conceived. You be the judge.

Teacher reprimanded for playing clips from "Beavis and Butthead" in his classroom. For their part, the kids had no idea what they were watching anyway, and muttered something about the "old man cartoons".

A dead body sitting in a car racked up parking tickets for weeks claim police, until a tow-truck driver finally realized what was going on.

On this day in history: 

1986: Former UN Secretary General and Nazi war criminal Kurt Waldheim is elected president of Austria. One year later, the U.S. Justice Department places him on a watch list of undesirable aliens, making Waldheim the first foreign head of state legally forbidden from visiting America.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday May 6th, 2009

Robert Rodriguez has found a writer for "Predators". His name is Alex Litvak, and he has never written a film that has actually been completed, with only one screenplay to his credit which is "currently in production". Um... sweet?

The full list of MTV Movie award nominations is out, and the biggest winner is "Twilight", which somehow garnered more nominations than "The Dark Knight". Also in the "huh?" category, "Prom Night's" Jonathan Skaech nominated for "Best Villian". If all it took for the nomination was to have five o'clock shadow and wear a baseball hat, I should be nominated like, every day.

The first two TV spots for "Drag Me To Hell" have shown up online. We're now just three weeks away from the theatrical release of Sam Raimi's return to horror.

The official plot synopsis for Rob Zombie's "H2" has been released, and while it's not a whole lot of new information, it does mention "an unlikely new hero", something which has not been discussed up until this point. My guess? He's referring to the now damaged Laurie Strode, who I can only expect Zombie is going to have go all "70's revenge movie" on Myers, because you know, that's what he does.

In Real People News: 

So, it's first thing in the morning, would you really like to see a "before and after" photo of the woman who got the world's first face transplant? It's your move, dear readers.

A Chinese woman accidentally bit her bosses penis off while giving him oral sex in a car recently. While engaged in the act, their car was hit by a reversing van, causing the ensuing jaw-clench. I'm guessing she might as well throw any hopes of a positive review out the window right now.

I knew cats were evil. Apparently half the world has been infected by the cat-parasite "Toxoplasma gondii", and it's affecting our personalities. Little bastards.

On this day in history: 

1937: Zeppelin Hindenberg explodes at Lakehurst NJ, leaving 36 dead and others seriously burned. A reporter witnessing the carnage coins the phrase "oh, the humanity!"
