"Scream 4" Lands a New Teaser Poster

In Scream 4, Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (played by Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.

Oh boy! Tim Burton's new "Dark Shadows" movie just got a whole lot sexier because Jackie Earle Haley has been added to the cast. Johnny Depp will star in the film but no one will be watching him with that hunky Jackie prancing around the screen with his creepy get in my van smile. Bella Heathcote has also been added to the cast and much to my surprise is not a porn star.

Booo Paramount, boo! Apparently there's been a "Pet Cemetery" remake in the works for some time now but up until recently it wasn't getting much action. But now it looks like a script is almost done and a director search is moving forward. Matthew Greenberg, who wrote the script for King's "1408" as well is just about done with his new updated version of this sucker.

I don't know if this is suppose to be good news but Wes Craven says he isn't re-shooting scenes for "Scream 4" but actually adding pivotal scenes. So just to confirm, he watched his movie and didn't see scenes that he thought could be better or done different, no he saw scenes that were completely missing all together. I'm not good with math or words but honestly I think the re-shooting sounded better.

MTV has announced that their new series based on the 90's classic "Teen Wolf" will hit the air on June 5th. Based on everything I've heard about their latest show "Skins" I am fully expecting this one to feature full frontal nudity and partial if not full penetration. I'll consider anything less a complete failure.

In Real People News: 

Not going to lie, I don't see anything wrong with this one. A Minnesota man is being brought up on animal cruelty charges after he tried to mail a 4 month old puppy to Atlanta. Did he not poke holes in the box? Is that what he did wrong? Should he have put a bone in the box with the dog? Seriously, I'm drawing a blank here.

In what sounds like a Lifetime movie here's a story about a Nebraska women who beat the holy living hell out of a guy with a frying pan after he tried to sexually assault her. I would have gone with a Loony Tunes reference here but I don't recall those having many attempted rape scenes in them.

Looks like "Scream 4" isn't quite screamy enough yet so Wes Craven is heading back behind the camera to do some re-shoots next week. I'm sure he reads the site so I'd like to talk to Mr. Craven directly now. Wes, can I call you Wes? Wes what's with the cheerleader from "Heroes" looking like a boy? What's say we let that hair grow and and cast her as a girl? You're doing re-shoots anyway. Thanks Wes!

If anyone's written a horror movie lately and wants it picked up now's your chance because Slash is obviously all kinds of drugged up and signing off on just about anything. Over the past few weeks he's signed on to produce a number of flicks with his new Slasher Films company and now we learn he's got two more, "Theorem" from Vincenzo Natali and "The Other Kingdom" from Philip Eisner. Silly top hat.

The South Korean film "I Saw the Devil" finally has a trailer and much to my surprise it is chock full of South Korean people. I have no idea if that's accurate. Kim Jee-woon, the guy who brought you "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", directs the film which marks his first attempt at horror. I don't care what culture you're from, I'm not comfortable with any man being named Kim.

If you're tired of all these big budget exorcism movies then here's "The Disco Exorcist" to save the day. The film is suppose to be another grindhouse romp and I can only assume will feature both a disco and an exorcism. We can only wait and see though folks, I'm not a fortune teller.

In Real People News: 

A 33 year old women in Buenos Aires survived a jump from the 23rd floor of a hotel after landing on a taxi. Which is pretty amazing but what's even more awesome is that there's a photo. Cameras rule!

A Connecticut man when ahead and sued his former job because he says he was wrongfully fired for not being able to urinate on demand for drug tests. Which is funny because if he wins this he'll probably be so excited he'll pee his pants. Get it!

There's new Canadian trailer for "Scream 4" out on the tubes that's chock full of new clips and magic. How you can tell it's Canadian is because they dubbed in a bunch of "aboots" and instead of a knife the ghost faced guy is running around with a bottle of maple syrup. Subtle, I know.

"Atrocious" is a new Spanish found footage flick which doesn't look to far off from your "Paranormal Activity" and "Blair Witch Project". Of course it is a lot more caliente, but that goes without saying. That's the only ignorant thing I'm going to say about the new trailer though, I already filled my daily quota with the maple syrup thing.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is going to direct a new movie called "Wait Till Helen Comes" which focuses on a family that move into a house that use to be a church and discover a ghost. They then whisper creepy things to the ghost like "hey ghost, you sure are spooky, want to go into our new hot tub?". Ya know, because Hewitt has another show called "The Ghost Whisperer". Get it? Comic gold!

There's been enough one sheets for "Hobo With a Shotgun" to choke a camel but I'm a sucker for the old school grindhouse looking type posters so here's this new one. I'm not sure if the film is ever actually going to be coming out but posters are cool, so we'll just keep going with that.

In Real People News: 

Aww that's so cute! A toddler in Florida recently called 911 to get the message that his father was being bad to Santa. The story takes a turn for the worse though when the boy was arrested and is now serving 3 to 4 in a maximum security prison for the false alarm call. On the bright side, his little tear drop tattoo is to die for.

Let this be a lesson to you kids, don't mess with the substitute teacher! Because if you get a nut job like this one you may end up getting punched in the face when he gets fed up with you and the rest of the 8 years olds throwing spit balls.

Liam Neeson is teaming up again with is "A-Team" director Joe Carnahan in "The Grey". Neeson seems to have a new found love for the horror genre, can he pull it off once again in this man vs. wolf thriller?

Bill Moseley seems like a natural fit for Charles Manson, so it's good to hear that Susanna Lo has cast him in her upcoming flick, "Manson Girls". Manson is pretty much a love child between Chop Top and Otis, so why not?

The first season of AMC's "The Walking Dead" was a rousing success and you'll be able to buy it for yourself in March. Start saving your pennies, the Blu-ray will run you $49, the DVD will go for $39.99.

Our first big awards show of 2011 has come and gone with last night's airing of The People's Choice Awards. This year the fans didn't give much love to the horror genre at all despite the addition of a 'Favorite Horror Movie' category. The first winner of this prestigious category? "A Nightmare on Elm Street". At least "Dexter" won for favorite TV obsession.

Sydney Prescott, author of a self help book is finishing up her book tour in her home town of Woodsboro when the Ghostface murders start up again. Such is the leaked plot synopsis included in the first round of "Scream 4" test screening invitations.

In Real People News: 

The following is a warning from the Calvert County Sheriff's Department: there is a rogue Emu on the loose. Should you see the animal in your yard, do not approach. The animal is to be considered a wild freaking animal and it will claw the shit out of you.

An 11 year old New Jersey child is going to court for writing her name in cement, yet the "Jersey Shore" cast still walks free. I ask you, is this justice?

On this day in history: 

1982 - William G Bonin, the truck driving "Freeway Killer", convicted in Los Angeles. He had murdered 14 boys and young men.

Horror Headlines: Monday November 15th, 2010

Apparently Cory Feldman and most of the cast of "The Goonies" would love to see a sequel happen. Wait, is this news? Of course they would. The kid who played Data has been giving out handies under a bridge for the last 20 years. Of course they'd like to see a sequel. Is Chunk still alive? I'm sorry I even brought this up, ignore the whole thing.

I have no desire to talk about "Scream 4" but these new photos raise so many questions. Are these actually just screen shots from the old movies? Who's that boy that looks like the cheerleader from "Heroes"? Why in the holy living hell hasn't someone put Wes Craven in an old folks home yet? We may never know.

Get ready guys, here's the first look at Amanda Seyfried in "Red Riding Hood". Let me be the first to applaud the creators of the film for not cheapening things by putting her in some scantily clad outfit. No, you guys stayed true to the kids story and covered her from head to toe. Maybe go to the next level and put her in a burlap sack. That'll show em!

Ah boy this can't be good. "The Thing" prequel, which was originally set for an April 29th 2011 release date has been updated to TBD. After searching my computer's calender for a good 30 minutes I then looked up what TBD meant. Well, first I went to Taco Bell and got dinner but then I looked it up. I think we're done here.

In Real People News: 

Just a thought here. If you're going to be chosen as the guy who actually goes to buy the lottery ticket for a group of co-workers, maybe don't buy the tickets at a porno shop. Because god forbid you actually win and you have to go back to the store. Just a thought.

Now this guy is bad ass. A man in Connecticut was shot twice at a deli and before he called the hospital he actually went home and ate his sandwich. I assume it was meatball or something, those things suck when they get cold.

Trailer: First Trailer For "Scream 4" Hits

Today we’ve got the first trailer for "Scream 4" and if you liked the original film but have no interest in seeing what the original teenage heartthrobs look like 15 years later then you’re in luck. Out with the old and in with the new seems to be the theme of things here as those dried up old tarts from "Melrose Place" have been replaced by today’s hottest young starlets. I couldn’t be more excited if they had 25% of the cast from "Heroes" in here. Wait they do? Jackpot!

Where do Werewolves go when they die? For decades we thought we'd never know. But the film "Zombie Werewolves Attack", which was just picked up by Troma for distribution, is here to give us answers. They turn into Zombies, that's the answer. You should have figured that out by title alone.

Christian E. Christiansen, a guy who's most notable credit is a Danish series called "Mikkel og guldkortet", is rumored to be the next in line to direct the "Hellraiser" remake. Fret not though, Amber Heard is also rumored to be landing a role in the film and she's famous for, well being hot and stuff.

Mia Wasikowska, who you all remember as Alice from the "Alice in Wonderland" has been offered a role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Bradley Cooper has apparently also been offered a role so I'm officially declaring today's news the hunkiest in BGH history.

Finally last night at the 2010 Scream Awards the trailer for "Scream 4" apparently premiered and thanks to the power of cell phones there's now 100 youtube videos of the trailer with tons of crowd noise. Enjoy!

In Real People News: 

I consider myself to be a sensitive guy but this sounds like the worst idea ever imagined. Air New Zealand is planning on rolling out a "cuddle class" next year which would put couples in seats the fold down so the love birds can snuggle during the flight. Congratulations New Zealand, you just found another reason while I'll never visit you.

On this day in history: 

1898 - The American flag was raised in Puerto Rico shortly before Spain formally relinquished control of the island to the United States.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday October 13th, 2010

Marc Abraham recently sat down to give some details on how he sees "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" going. Apparently they'll shy away from the rubber suit look which is good news for everyone who isn't into rubber suit play. You know who you are you kinky SOBs.

Le French trailer for le "Saw 3D" has been released and it features some new le clips. I can't imagine any of the scenes featuring Jigsaw drinking wine and eating cheese will be left in for the US release but who knows.

Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere recently popped up in some new set shots from "Scream 4". Honestly I pride myself on my sarcastic comments but really the funniest thing I can think of for this one is look at the second picture on the page and think "Duuuur!".

In Real People News: 

Apparently there is something out there called the Commonwealth Games and it's a lot like the Olympics. That's not the fun news though, no the fun part is that the Commonwealth Games Village may not be ready to open due to a large number of flushed condoms that are clogging the sewers. See, you learned something and got a chuckle today.

On this day in history: 

1977 – Four Palestinians hijack Lufthansa Flight 181 to Somalia and demand release of 11 members of the Red Army Faction.

My Soul to Take (REVIEW)

My Soul to Take will make you scream.

It's not every day that one has to witness the decline of a legend, but this weekend, with the release of "My Soul to Take," we are all witness to the decline of iconic director Wes Craven. A sloppy, mess of a film, "My Soul to Take" finds Craven at his absolute worst. Unbearable teenage dialogue, throw away characters, and over-baked killers -- it's the perfect storm of Craven's previous bad habits in one disastrous film. Though this train wreck has been telegraphed since at least the second "Scream" film, that doesn't make it any less disappointing or dispiriting.
