[rec] 2

Posters: "[REC]3: Genesis"

I never saw "[REC]2" so I have no idea where this series has gone. Is there going to be a wedding? Do I have to bring a present? Because I don't really have time to pick one up. Is cash ok? Anyway, ya, they're still making these. This one hits Spanish theaters at the end of March.

Horror Headlines: Friday July 2nd, 2010

It's almost the 4th of July and in honor of this glorious celebration of freedom we have the trailer for "Let Me In". For those you no familiar with the film let me school you. A couple years back a bunch of Vikings made a movie where a couple of pale kids talked for two and a half hours and one of them was a vampire. Luckily for them we took that boring film, fixed all the problems and now will be offering it to you on October 1st. Let freedom ring!

With "[REC] 2" already out on VOD and finding it's way to a limited theater release next week, co-director Paco Plaza sat down to give his thoughts on where he sees the film franchise going and what his favorite type of sangria is. Knowing that the film is an import from Spain I was pretty excited to see the entire interview is in English. Either that or I can read Spanish now... No that can't be it. U-S-A! U-S-A! Oh the sangria thing was a lie.

I made myself two promises this week. I wouldn't post anything about "Predators" or "Scream 4". Is that one promise actually? I was never good with math. But honestly it's a really slow day and there is squat for other news out there so here's some info on three new cast members who have joined the good fight in "Scream 4". If one of them was a giant monster alien who hunts people this would of tied in nicely.

The internet is all a-buzz with news that Andrew Garfield will play Spiderman in the next installment of the series which is set to be released in 2012. Really I have no idea who the guy is but he was in two episodes of "Dr. Who" apparently so I figured the nerds would be all damp with excitement about the announcement. The real story here is that "Spiderman 4" is going to be in 3D so that means there's a good chance Kirsten Dunst's tooth is going to poke someones eye out. Watch out kids!

In Real People News: 

Ya know what this world is missing? A "Golden Girls" porn parody. I know I'm pissed I didn't think of it too. Now you can stop using your body as a amusement park to old re-runs like a sicko and watch a movie specifically made for your own personal loving. Ya mental patient.

This might be the sweetest story I've ever read. A women in Hungary refuses to eat a cucumber shaped like a penis because it reminds her of her husband too much. And I thought romance was dead. No these aren't tears. Don't look at me!

Horror Headlines: Thursday March 25th, 2010

If you're lucky and say your prayers every night this week, Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza's stylish creeper "[Rec] 2" might find its way into a theater near you on July 9th. Surprisingly, Magnolia will be handling distribution this time around. Good for them.

Do you like dinosaurs? Do you like comic books based on Spielberg movies? If so, you're in luck. IDW Publishing and Universal are plotting to unleash a series of comics based on the "Jurassic Park" franchise onto the masses this June. Personally, I'm waiting for the pop-up books. Ah, Piatnitzkysaurus!

While everyone else and their kinky grandmother is attending HorrorHound Weekend, I will be sitting quietly in my living room, staring blankly at the June 7th release date for Noboru Iguchi's Japanese gore epic "RoboGeisha" I've marked on my 2010 Adorable Kittens calendar. Can you tell I'm pretty excited about this one? I thought so.

You know what's fishy about the launch of the official "Piranha 3D" website? No trailer. In fact, there's not a single promotional clip to be found anywhere on the page. If the studio wants me to stay interested until August 27th, they'd better deliver a theatrical trailer in HD post-haste. Pretty please. With Elizabeth Shue.

In Real People News: 

If suffering the frigid temperatures wasn't torture enough, residents of St. Petersburg, Russian are struggling to avoid being impaled by enormous icicles falling from the sky. The descending debris has already claimed the lives of five people.

The next time you get into an argument with your ex-girlfriend, try jumping out of the moving vehicle you're sharing at the time. If she comes back, it's true love. If not, roll onto the shoulder so you don't cause an accident. And stop being so selfish all the time. Sheesh.
