Horror Headlines: Thursday September 17th, 2009

Clive Barker's comic book "Seduth" will be presented in 3D when it's released in October. The story follows "a man driven by his darkest impulses to oblivion and back after being exposed tot he contents of a priceless diamond".

Picture this: A sitcom called "Coffee & Donuts" starring Joe Lynch and Adam Green. Ya, that was the same reaction I had. Apparently it will be based on Green's first short film, and had originally been pitched to UPN a few years ago. Now that the rights have floated back Green's way, he is pitching it as a vehicle for him and Lynch, and studios are showing interest. This may be enough to get me back into watching regular television. Stay tuned!

Sony has picked up the rights to "[REC]2" from the Toronto International Film Festival. Sony was previously responsible for the remake "Quarantine", as well as releasing the original film on DVD.

First TV spot for "Saw VI". So, it's officially that time of year when your non horror-loving friends start saying "they're really making ANOTHER one of these???".

In Real People News: 

Canadian man jailed for life after 19th DUI. I'd say it's pretty safe to say at that point that he's going to do it again.

This guy was a little smarter. He beat a drunk driving rap by claiming he drank all of the alcohol in the time between when he stopped and when the police got to his car. The court could not prove that he was drunk when he was actually driving, so now he's free. Now THAT takes balls.

On this day in history: 

1939: The Soviet Union invades Poland, to fulfill its end of the secret protocols contained in the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact. They partition the country along pre-decided lines.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday May 5th, 2009

Just in time for the Region 1 DVD of "[REC]" to land this July, the official site for "[REC 2]" is live. Not a whole lot there at the moment, but with a planned October 9th release in Spain, you should see material popping up there periodically over the summer. We'll keep you informed if we hear anything.

Two new images from "The Pack", a pretty fantastic looking film about a pack of "bloodthirsty ghouls" in a snowy no-man's land, whose mother takes care of them, and feeds strangers to them. Good times.

The quality may appear slightly dubious, but boy does the word "Nunsploitation" catch my eye. Hey, I'm only human. The flick's called "Nun of That" (how clever), and there's more info and a trailer at the link.

"Doghouse" has the exact same plot as "Lesbian Vampire Killers", is also a horror film from the UK, and has a new quad poster that almost shows full-on cameltoe. For those keeping track at home, that last part there pretty much makes up for the rest of that story.

Here's a spoiler-filled, detailed plot description of what "Terminator 5" will be all about, from McG himself. Sounds pretty interesting, as long as you don't mind the minor spoilers.

In Real People News: 

Apparently parents in Brooklyn had to be warned to not let their children eat raccoon shit recently. Yes, I said BROOKLYN, not some third world country. What the hell is going on there, anyway?

"The forbidden dance" has been banned in Pakistan for being too lude. Where's Kevin Bacon when you need him? I smell a sequel.

Government workers in China have been ordered to smoke nearly a quarter million packs of locally made cigarettes annually or be subjected to a fine. Can't make this stuff up, folks.

On this day in history: 

840: A son of Charlemagne, Emperor Louis of Bavaria, dies of fright during a total eclipse of the sun. His sons quarrel, causing the division of his Empire into France, Germany, and Italy.
