Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: LUCKY MCKEE

HORROR ICON MINI-MARATHON: Lucky McKee

It’s rare that a male filmmaker, working in a genre known for its unenlightened views of the female experience, would build an entire resume of films that were mature and thoughtful observations of the horror genre from a woman’s perspective. In celebration of his upcoming film release “All Cheerleaders Die,” this week’s article covers the career of filmmaker Lucky McKee.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday September 22nd, 2010

Is there a "True Blood" movie coming in the near future? Apparently theirs rumors that creator Alan Ball and HBO are already in talks to bring the vampire hit that I watch on a weekly basis despite hating myself after to the big screen. I can't wait to see it and then cry about it after.

A new trailer for Simon Rumley's "Red, White & Blue" has popped up on the tubes and after watching it I feel like I need a shower. So I've decided to make a sarcastic comment about the "Iron Man 2" trailer that I had to watch before it rather then relive the trauma I felt. Man that Gwyneth Paltrow really looks like she's hooked on smack or something am I right? I think I'm right.

For those of you lucky enough to be in the London area, and I'm starting to think 75% of our readers are, you've got a one time chance to see Guillermo del Toro introduce and discuss his 1993 film "Cronos". The event is part of the Midnight Movies series and will take place on October 9th.

John Goodman has been added to the cast of Kevin Smith's "Red State". The film is about a bunch of kids fighting a group of crazed conservatives and Jon Goodman is not going to change the fact that I have no desire to see it. Honestly it was either this or I was going to tell you about 75 new "Saw 3D" images so you're welcome.

In Real People News: 

A man in Kentucky is claiming that too much caffeine actually caused him to unknowingly strangle his spouse. Which explains a lot because after my third cup of coffee in the morning I get enraged at the thought of you people not appreciating my news. I'll kill you!

On this day in history: 

1934 - An explosion takes place at Gresford Colliery in Wales, leading to the deaths of 266 miners and rescuers.

Universal Studios is toying with a new attraction, namely a new 3D King Kong ride named "Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World". Here's hoping for more 3D Naomi Watts and less 3D Jack Black.

Straight from the 'a sequel to what?' news desk; directory Harry Bromly Davenport let slip that he will be releasing a sequel to 1983's "Xtro". On the bright side, it's an actual sequel and not a remake!

Columbia Pictures is starting up the "Men in Black 3" hype machine as they begin to throw around names for the planned sequel. Thrown around so far are Josh Brolin, Sascha Baron Cohen and Jemaine Clement of "Flight of the Conchords" fame. None of these names are a lock however, just a listing of who the studio hopes to snag.

Nerd goddess Felicia Day has signed on to Syfy's "Red", a modern day retelling of "Little Read Riding Hood". Swap out the innocence of a little girl going to see her granny with Day's family who makes their living hunting werewolves and that's your plot.

In Real People News: 

Wang Cuyun was a simple grandmother trying to prevent a demolition team from tearing down her house. Her plan worked well until a member of the crew beat her with a stick, dumped her unconscious body into a ditch, then buried her alive with a bulldozer. Sadly, Ms. Cuyun didn't survive the ordeal.

Prince William's comely girlfriend Kate Middleton failed her first test for her future of protecting the crown jewels. After the Prince gave her a pair of antique pearl studs for her birthday, she found herself sifting through dog poop trying to find them when her pet cocker spaniel swallowed them whole.

On this day in history: 

1997 - Notorious B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace) killed in a drive-by outside the Soul Train Music Awards in Los Angeles.

Red (REVIEW)

I don’t really read horror fiction. There are probably several reasons for this but I am going to blame Dostoyevsky, or more correctly an uncle of mine who felt it would be good for me to read “Crime and Punishment” at far too tender an age. At 11 years old, I could appreciate none of the heavier subtext of the book nor really understand the world in which it took place. What I could take in and be horrified by was the description of the peasant man whipping his horse to death. I found this monumentally unsettling.
