sorority row

Horror Headlines: Wednesday August 5th, 2009

Tons of new pics from "Sorority Row". Not going to lie, these people know how to market the crap out of a movie with tons of hot chicks. Not that it's hard, but still, I give them credit.

Kevin Williamson talks "Scream 4". Yes, this is really happening people. Brace yourselves.

5 clips from "A Perfect Getaway", the vacation themed thriller in theaters this Friday.

David Leslie Johnson, who wrote last week's release "Orphan", has been hired by Leonardo DiCaprio's production company to pen an updated version of "Little Red Riding Hood".

Speaking of kids no one wants... Larry Fessenden has been tapped to direct the English language remake of "The Orphanage", the 2007 Spanish film. This remake is also being produced by Guillermo Del Toro, who helped organize the original.

In Real People News: 

In this guy's defense, getting up to go upstairs to pee is really tough when you're tired. So why not just urinate on your front porch. And if you're like this guy, rub one out while you're there... just for good measure.

The British Government approves a plan to put 20,000 "problem families" under 24 hour CCTV surveillance IN THEIR HOMES. And all without even the hint of irony... this is terrifying.

Son missed his dead father, so he dug him up and brought him home. Something I learned today: that's frowned upon.

On this day in history: 

1962: In her Brentwood, California home, Marilyn Monroe dies in bed, naked, after swallowing an overdose of sleeping pills. Rumors persist to this day that the CIA had her killed in order to cover up her alleged affair with JFK.

New, Saucy “Sorority Row” Clip

Say what you want about the upcoming “Sorority Row” remake but those suckers have come up with a pretty clever little clip to promote the movie. Basically a fake promo video for the sorority with various clips of the film spliced in. Clips that include some hot girl on girl action! Color me excited. Take a look below and post up your thoughts. “Sorority Row” hits theaters this September.

We'll be recording this week's podcast tonight, with the topic of choice being David Lynch's cult classic "Eraserhead". If you have any last minute thoughts, be sure to hit us up on the contact page or send us a message on Twitter.

The release date for the "Hellraiser" remake has been changed from 2009 to "To Be Announced". According to Box Office Mojo, the official title is "Clive Barker Presents: Hellraiser". At least I like the title. Now we'll just have to wait and see how the movie turns out.

The people behind "Sorority Row" listened to me and went with the poster that has all of their actresses laying all over each other. It makes studios happy because it vaguely resembles those cheesy "floating head" posters, and it makes me happy because it's sexy. See, everybody wins.

"Predators" will be "Aliens" only with "Predators". Got it? To expound, the sequel will follow a group of people stranded on a Predator planet who have to deal with the "horrors they encounter".

Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2" is a little less than a month away folks. Up on Zombie's blog today is a still of Sheri Moon Zombie with the new boyhood Michael Myers, Chase Wright Vanek. I haven't been paying that close attention but I believe this is really the first time we've seen this new Myers in an official still... so, there it is.

New stills for "The Final Destination". See that last one there in the theater... how meta! It's like you were murdered in your seat while you were watching the movie in 3D. Get it?

In Real People News: 

Remember kids, even unconvincing, fake mushrooms can get your ass sent to jail. That's an important life lesson right there.

All you need to know about this fight is that at one point someone crapped on someone's back as an offensive move. I smell a new fighting style. Zing!

You know when you pass out drinking with your friends, and when you wake up they've drawn a penis somewhere on your face? this is kind of like that, only it's in prison... and permanent. Ouch.

On this day in history: 

1535: Sir Thomas More, an English politician, is sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered. King Henry VIII takes pity on him and changes the sentence to beheading. Said head is hung on display from London Bridge before being rescued by his daughter a month later.

Horror Headlines: Thursday June 25th, 2009

Zac Efron has signed on to do a thriller for Mandate Pictuers, from the writer who brought you "Hairspray". You know what, that's just too easy.

The "Sorority Row" remake gets moved up, from October 2nd to September 11th.

The trailer for Richard Kelly's "The Box" has finally landed. This actually looks really solid considering it's been pushed back so many times. But opening opposite "Saw"? Really? Sort of sounds like giving it an excuse to fail to me.

In Real People News: 

Bumfight erupts over a conversation on quantum physics. Why homeless men were debating the splitting of atoms... your guess is as good as mine. What I do know is the weapon of choice was a skateboard, which makes the story even wackier.

Even if you believe this odd piece of Chinese folklore stating that drinking soup made from a man's brain would cure mental illness, do you really think the ideal brain would be that of a drunk 75 year old? Let's set our sights a little higher here, people.

On this day in history: 

1876: Custer's last stand. After being tricked into thinking his Indian adversaries were retreating during the Battle of Little Bighorn, Custer and his 210 men were ambushed, with all losing their lives. He was found two days later almost entirely naked, with an arrow through his penis.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday June 16th, 2009

The writer of "Sorority Row" and "Piranha 3D" updates his blog with news/thoughts on both films, both of which he feels are going to turn out really well. "Sorority Row" is apparently completely finished at this point, and according to him lives up to his original script, which as he says was "Scary. Funny. Tense. Stylish. Bloody. Sexy". I did actually get most of that from the trailer, so consider me excited.

Here are the specs for the new "Night of the Creeps" DVD, and damn, I have to say they're going all out with the special features. Once this one's off our list, what's the next big horror title that needs to be released on DVD? My other major one was "Phantasm II", but that one was also announced recently.

Just as I was ranting on the podcast last night about how much I dislike Rob Zombie's "Halloween", up popped the news on Twitter that the full official site for the sequel is now live. It was interesting timing, to say the least.

In Real People News: 

When I hear these stories about Boy Scout Camp, it makes me thankful I dropped out after a year. Thank God I was a slacker as a kid.

Two cases of dead tadpoles raining from the sky have been reported in China recently. The funny thing is, that's probably the most normal thing that happened there today.

Man spontaneously revives a half an hour after being pronounced dead, then dies again two days later. Oooohhh, so close.

On this day in history: 

1959: While entertaining friends at his home, George Reeves, who played the title character in the original Superman TV series, goes upstairs to his bedroom and commits suicide with a 9mm German Luger.

Horror Headlines: Thursday May 28th, 2009

Wanna take your top off in "A Nightmare on Elm St."? They weren't interested in me, something about "not having huge fake tits". Ah well.

A dark version of "Snow White" sounds pretty awesome, although I'm guessing they won't have to try so hard to make it scary. Those old Disney films are still terrifying.

John Lithgow joins "Dexter"... as a serial killer. I'm nominating this for best story of the week, hands down.

"Sorority Row", the remake of the 1983 film "The House on Sorority Row", has been rated "R for strong bloody violence, language, some sexuality/nudity and some partying". So "partying" gets you an R rating these days? That's interesting.

"Alien" gets a remake, apparently shooting down any hope that it might get a 5th installment. Supposedly though, Michael Costigan, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott are all on board as producers, and have picked their own director. So I guess that's good news?

In Real People News: 

Interested in buying an old funeral home at auction? Would it entice you if I said that there are 4 dead bodies decomposing somewhere in the building that have been there for years? No? You drive a hard bargain, sir.

Understaffed health clinic in Prague offers free boob jobs to prospective doctors and nurses. Hmmm... that's certainly ONE way to go.

3 legged turtle uses Tonka Toy to get around. That should fulfill your warm and fuzzy quotient for the year. I promise to get back to scaring you tomorrow.

On this day in history: 

1946: Manhattan Project scientists Klaus Fuchs and John von Neumann file for a secret patent on their design for the hydrogen bomb initiator.

Horror Headlines: Friday May 15th, 2009

The official website for the Del Toro-Produced "The Strain", some type of vague vampire film that we don't have a lot of details on yet. Someone let me know at what point we get annoyed that he's got 20 projects going right now but he's not currently directing anything. I always jump the gun on these things.

The teaser poster for "Sorority Row", the remake of the early 80's film "House on Sorority Row". Check it at the link.

New "True Blood" poster. Nope... still don't think Anna Paquin is attractive... sorry, guys.

A crapload of new stills from "Blood: The Last vampire". Blah Blah Blah Japanese School girl who fights vampires.

Warner Bro's snags a movie deal for the SyFy show "Primeval", which is about "ferocious prehistoric and futuristic creatures that appear through wormhole time portals, and a covert team headed by an evolutionary scientist tries to close the doors and quietly thwart the creatures". I haven't seen this show yet, but it sounds like they just mashed up every SyFy feature film ever into a TV show. Anyone a fan?

In Real People News: 

If only that guy who yelled out the now infamous line "don't tase me bro!" had a 1 year old child to block the taser with, like this lady, maybe we'd all have bought and then thrown out T-shirts with "don't tase my baby, bro!" instead.

Vinnie Jones goes to trial for assault charges stemming from a bar brawl that took place in South Dakota last year. That's so surprising. He really seemed like a big teddy bear when he was running around bashing people's heads in during "Midnight Meat Train".

On this day in history: 

1991: Alan Cooper stands trial in England for "committing a lewd, obscene, and disgusting act on the 12-foot dolphin called Freddie as they frolicked for 20 minutes off the harbor mouth at Amble, Northumberland." Cooper responds by claiming that his accuser was a sworn enemy and had trained dolphins for a movie to jump out of the water and tear off a woman's bikini bra. He is eventually acquitted of masturbating the cetacean.

Horrorhound Weekend has come to a close and now it's time for recovery! In light of some frustrating flights home, I've stepped up from the review desk to allow Eric the time to rest after a delayed flight as well as give him some extra time to go choke a customer service specialist! Stay tuned this week for the Horrorhound Recap from Mark, as well as a Podcast episode recorded live from the convention floor!

Paramount and Myspace join forces for a new web-series called "Section 8". Borrowing a concept from the old "10 Little Indians" song, the series claims to be a supernatural thriller as we watch a different character knocked off each week and attempt to discover who the killer is. How long until the internet meme concept explodes as Facebook groups form for fans of a Myspace series?

Following in the footsteps of "Dead Space", Electronic Arts plans to release a "Dante's Inferno" animated film to accompany the games release. With the mild popularity of the "Dead Space" animated feature, could this be a new trend in the converging entertainment industry?

While Rogue Pictures continues to work on their "Hack/Slash" adaptation, indie newcomer Ratio Pictures borrows the concept in their announced flick, "Eve". They're not even trying to hide the fact with their feature starring a young girl that runs around hunting serial killers, there is sure to be some legal hullabaloo following this one before its scheduled 2010 start date.

The official site for "Sorority Row" has been launched by Summit Entertainment. As usual, there's not a lot to it that you haven't seen already, but we'll keep an eye out for future updates.

Rob Zombie plans to ditch the iconic "Halloween" score originally recorded by John Carpenter in 1978. There were elements of Carpenter's score used in the original remake back in 2007.

In Real People News: 

A Norfolk man drops dead after playing Wii Fit. The doctors have dubbed the occurrence as "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome". With my superior medical knowledge, I'd be more likely to diagnose this as "Fat Man Running in Place for 2 Hours Syndrome".

A man in Washington state pays a $200 traffic fine with a plastic baggie filled with coins, bills and urine. Witnesses say he was rather pissed off.

A UK study proves bald men don't get laid. I would like to take this moment to remind you the ladies out there that the story mentions "Bald Men", not "Balding Men". I'm not out of the game yet!

On this day in history: 

March 30th, 1968. Two Bowery children happen across the body of a homeless drug addict in the street. The body was Bobby Driscol, the voice of Walk Disney's "Peter Pan".

Early "Sorority Row" Art Bests Floating Heads

This early poster for "Sorority Row" came out today, and even though it's not the official one-sheet I wanted to just take a moment here to applaud the artist. All those years of hokey floating head art, and someone finally had the bearings to stand up and say, "why don't we just leave their hot bodies, and have them lay on each other?" You sir, are my personal hero.

The rep for Summit says this was just an "early" piece of art, so we may see some lame floating head poster yet. Rest assured I'll be the first one to call shenanigans if that happens. Full poster at the source.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 17th, 2009

"Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre may be the next big foreign slasher film, but if they expect me to do anything but belly laugh when I read about it, they better change that damn name, and fast. Teaser trailer at the link.

Talk about obscure, Fango reports that there is a remake of the UK exploitation film "The House on Straw Hill" underway. The original is apparently still banned in the UK, and deals with a writer in an old house whose assistant turns violent and homicidal.

Mick Garris hopes to be shooting Stephen King's "Bag of Bones" this summer in Maine, however some haggling must first be done, since Maine doesn't offer the kind of incentives that other states do when it comes to filming there.

If you're curious to see how the "House on Sorority Row" remake is coming along (titled just "Sorority Row"), prints of the trailer are reported to be attached to Nic Cage's "Knowing", which hits theaters this weekend. Or you can just wait until Monday when it shows up online. Probably better for your health.

Looks like there's going to be a "Lost Boys III", and Corey Feldman will be producing. Shockingly, he will also be the "focus" of the film. Weird how that works out when you're the producer, huh?

Dan Harris, writer of "X-Men 2" and "Superman Returns" has been picked to write the film adaptation of EA's "Dante's Inferno" game which is currently in development.

In Real People News: 

Look, I thought it was clear but let's reiterate. If you're a cop and you stop at any restaurant whatsoever, check your food for pubes before you leave with the bag. It will save you the time of having to go back later.

Perv puts "spy camera" inside Starbucks bathroom, forgets to delete picture of himself on the camera. Complete with "is that Paul Ruebens?" mugshot at the link.

This is by far the creepiest/awesomest story of the week. Man loses finger in motorcycle accident, doctors build him a prosthetic one, complete with a built-in USB stick!. Apparently, he's also a Linux user. This is really cool, until of course USB sticks go out of style. Imagine having a floppy disc attached to your fake hand?

On this day in history: 

1970: Country Joe McDonald (of Country Joe and the Fish) is convicted on obscenity charges after he asks for an F, a U, a C, and one other letter at a concert in Massachusetts.
