Horror Headlines: Friday, September 2nd, 2011

I got Feldman fever folks! And the cure right now is some new stills from his upcoming spooky new supernatural flick "Six Degrees Of Hell". I'm not sure I would be talking about the movie if Feldman wasn't in it but if you think about it I wouldn't be talking about Feldman if he wasn't in "Dream a Little Dream". Did I just mind F you so hard that you need a cigarette?

Let's be honest there's no real reason we should be covering "Real Steel" on this site but the fact that the movie stars Hugh Jackman as a father trying to bond with his son by fixing up a fighting robot means I will give this thing more coverage than "Scream", "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Friday the 13th" combined. It's that important. And today there's an adorable new Brazilian poster for the film that has Jackman looking like a dream boat while two robots fight. My heart has never felt this kind of warmth.

"Straw Dogs" has officially shot it's way to the number 1 spot on my list of most un-needed remakes. But it's happening and today there's a couple new clips from the movie that hits theaters on September 16th. For those of you who don't remember the original it stared Dustin Hoffman as man who moves to a small town with his wife and begins being terrorized by some local workers. Things get uncomfortable... in a "Last House On the Left" sort of way.

Indie zombie flicks are usually about as fun as... well indie zombie flicks but every once in a while you come up with a winner. I can't think of any off the top of my head but I'm sure there's one out there. Was "Shaun of the Dead" indie or just British? Anyway "Extinction: The G.M.O. Chronicles" is indie and by god it looks pretty decent. At least the zombies do. I don't know, watch the trailer and shut your face.

In Real People News: 

I've watched a lot of cops and there's one thing I know, sometimes it's really hard to spot a drunk driver. But in Kentucky a couple of officers lucked out when a guy was driving around with a bar stool stuck to the hood of his car. Turned out to be a dead giveaway.

I learn a lot about parenting from the internet. Like this story about a teen in Colorado who stabbed his father after he tried to take away his cell phone. It taught me that you should beat your kid to the punch and stab them before trying to take away their cell phone.

The people behind "Orphan" are finally kicking the promotion train into gear, with a slew of new pics today. Seriously? A week away from release? The studio's lack of enthusiasm should tell you all you need to know about this one.

Darron Aranofsky's commitment to his thriller "Black Swan" may be pulling him away from the "Robocop" remake. That would make sense, since Natalie Portman is set to star in "Black Swan", and she's one of the hottest and most talented women alive. On the other hand, you can't even carress Robocop... he's all sharp edges and joints that pinch you if you're not careful. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Here's a picture of Anne Hathaway holding a rat in a still for Tim Burton's "Alice". So ya, that happened.

Kate Bosworth lands female lead in "Straw Dogs" remake. She'll star alongside Alexander Skarsgard and James Marsden, in the remake of the 1971 Sam Peckinpah film starring Dustin Hoffman.

"Trick 'R Treat" DVD and Blu-ray art! I don't even own a Blu-ray player, but I might get a copy just for that cover.

In Real People News: 

Getting caught... "greeting yourself" ... is embarrassing enough (so I hear anyway). But what makes it worse? being caught by your woman and having her stab you for it. Jeeze... just trying to let off a little steam over here!

We could all learn a lesson from these gay penguins. Oh, one of them went back to the other side when he had the chance? Nevermind, turns out it's just lessonless story about gay penguins. Still...

This guy spent a lot of money on surgery so that he could "look like the devil". Somehow that turned into a vampire with two huge zits on his forehead. Might want to ask for your money back, dude.

On this day in history: 

1917: The Bolsheviks execute the Czar, Czarina, and their children at the culmination of the Communist revolution.
