It's time to get excited! Thousands of white trash tattoos will once again be cool now that the artist H.R. Giger has agreed to come on board to help develop the as yet untitled "Alien" prequel. Even more surprising? H.R. Giger is still alive! Who knew!?
It's always nice when the big Hollywood types fess up to their short comings. Like Mr. Sam Worthington who has finally gone on record as saying maybe the "Clash of the Titans" remake was kind of crap. He has yet to apologize for having the dreamiest eyes in the world though.
And just when you thought the Zombies have done it all a movie comes along called "Ninja Zombies". The film is apparently about a group of ninjas, that are also zombies. You probably could have guessed that from the title, but then I have no reason to be here. You wouldn't do that to me, would you?
If you don't like Disney and all their magic then you are a whiny little prick who hates fun and all things good. That's a fact. As a horror fan how could you not be excited to see them putting together a movie about the "Museum of the Weird"? The film is based on a Disneyland attraction that never was. If you have bad things to say about this I will fight you.
In Real People News:
It seems obvious that if you're shooting a movie in a city and you shoot up a car you don't just leave that car sitting in the middle of a street. But I guess the folks filming in Philadelphia didn't think there would be any concern when they walked away from their blown out vehicles with wires hanging out of them. So the cops called a bomb squad. Silly Philadelphia.
Never go to bed angry my friends. It's a solid way to keep a relationship going and an even better to way to make sure your lady doesn't light your crotch on fire while you're sleeping. You're welcome for the advice.
In a recent interview, Lloyd Kaufman lets slip that there are a number of Troma movies in talks for possible remakes including "Poultrygeist" and "Class of Nuke 'Em High". One would normally take news like this from Lloyd with a grain of salt, but the "Mother's Day" remake has already wrapped and "The Toxic Avenger" is in talks, so stranger things have happened!
21 dead babies have been found under a bridge in Jinning City, China. Sadly, all signs point to underhanded tactics by a local hospital as 8 of the infants had labels complete with biohazard bags showing their treatments and time of death.
We spoke earlier this week about the return of Vin Diesel to the "Riddick" franchise; plot details are starting to emerge. Expect back to basics with more monsters, which is always fun.
Roger Corman is heading back to the director's chair, teaming with the Syfy Channel for two epic features; "Dinoshark" and "Sharktopus". Sound horrible? Well of course it does! But that is Corman's bread and butter.
Jefferey Dean Morgan continues to grow his genre-cred as he joins Sam Worthington in "The Fields". This time around Morgan will be portraying a detective investigating Gulf area refineries for a murderer. Let's hope he does so as The Comedian.
Comic book fans have been a twitter over the announcement of Frank Darabont directing a series for AMC entitled "The Walking Dead". Ready to be a little more excited? Coming Attractions has gotten their hands on an early copy of the script and it's looking pretty good so far!
In a move deemed "smart" by absolutely no one, Lions Gate has exercised an option in Kevin Gruetert's contract forcing him to direct "Saw VII: 3D", the followup to his film "Saw VI". It was announced last week that he would be helming "Paranormal Activity 2", which apparently didn't sit well with LG, so they're officially going home and taking their toys with them.
