After 270 episodes of the podcast you develop a handful of jokes that are only funny to those dyed in the wool crazies who have been with us for a while. So if you're always wondering why the hell people are talking about the fog, or why we don't talk about the movie that rhymes with "Shrom Schnight," then this might be the classic pack for you.
Just to balance out all of the remake news, here's new stills from the indie film "Imago Mortis", which stars "Nightmare on Elm St." parts 4 and 5 star Lisa Wilcox, and follows a young woman who is investigating the disappearance of her brother.
Here's another teaser for you today, for Jon Knautz's "Shrine". You may know Knautz from last year's Indie hit "Jack Brooks Monster Slayer".
Man steals $8 flea and tick drops from Walmart because he needed drug money. I've read this story three times now and I still can't figure out what his master plan was.
On this day in history:
1971: 1,300 inmates riot inside the Attica Correctional Facility in western New York state, commandeering the prison and taking 40 guards hostage. The national guard stages an assault five days later, killing 42 people in the process (10 of them being captives).
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 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.
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!"
