Universal Studios Announces Their 2009 Halloween Horror Nights

Looks like Freddy, Jason and Letherface are getting the boot this year at the Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 2009. Both the Hollywood and Orlando locations have opted to give Jigsaw from the “Saw” films his own haunted maze this year and let their usual cast enjoy a vacation. According to their site Michael Myers will also be joining in on the fun in Hollywood, with Chucky and the Wolfman making the trip to Orlando.

Friday Fun - Jigsaw's Bitchin Dance Moves

We've often wondered around these parts whether "Saw" was going to be this generation's "Friday the 13th," and in the discussion mentioned the iconic nature of the Jigsaw character. I had by doubts, but after recently stumbling upon this video and marveling at how many "related" videos there are, I may change my tune.

Horror Headlines: Thursday June 4th, 2009

While Eric's away, Casey will play! So here I am with today's Horror Headlines!

The first teaser trailer for [REC]2 has arrived and it's a doozy! It looks like more of the same, but there is definitely some good action going here. Later in the day three clips were posted from the new film that are notable for a complete lack of excitement.

Tobin Bell confirms there is an eighth "Saw" movie planned and doesn't deny a ninth. He also failed to acknowledge the dead horse in the room that he was continually beating during the interview. Bell next's reprisal of his Jigsaw role is in the upcoming "Saw" video game, now being shown at E3.

Marking yet another promising creative team to leave the franchise, "Martyrs" director Pascal Laugier is no longer helming the "Hellraiser" remake. There was no reason given but it seems that this remake is quickly becoming a comedy of errors.

In bizarro reboot news, Courtney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette have signed on to the "Scream" reboot. Earlier rumors also pointed to Jamie Kennedy reprising his role. Could this be a first: a remake with the same cast? Do-over!

The first shots of Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex arrive online. They seem rather subdued when compared to the Thomas Jane pics that surfaced last year before Brolin was cast.

In Real People News: 

A Washington furry is sentenced to 30 days in jail for having sex with his two dogs. As Austin Powers would say, "Grrr baby, grrr..."

Tired of worrying about the police and DUI's after his nights at the pub, an Australian man has broken a Zebra to ride back and forth to the bar. Functional and stylish!

Canadian thieves steal 144 kegs of beer. In related news, the whereabouts of our resident beer aficionado and staff writer Joe are currently unknown.

On this day in history: 

1942 – The Battle of Midway begins when Japanese Admiral Chuichi Nagumo orders a strike on Midway Island.

First "Saw" Video Game Details

Last week, we were "treated" to a very short, vague teaser for the upcoming "Saw" video game from Konami. When I first heard about the game, I was curious as to whether or not it would be puzzle based or action based, and as it turns out, it's a bit of both:

"Gobstopper" Trailer Assaults SXSW

I was emailed this recently and thought it was too good to pass up. It's literally, and I mean LITERALLY, one of the greatest things I have ever seen. It's a fake trailer for a film called "Gobstopper" starring Christopher Lloyd (!) Check out the description and the video below... you won't believe what you're seeing.

I would also like to thank this video for giving me my new favorite pickup line, "My BONER's got weird old candy bars!"

"Saw" Ride Not Safe For Breast Implants

So as Eric reported last week the Saw ride at UK’s Thorpe Park was scheduled to open this Saturday. I use the word “was” because yesterday during some testing the ride was shut down. What was the cause for the temporary closing? "Minor teething problems". That’s not even a joke.
