Snapshots: "Excision" makes Sundance uncomfortable...

I have no knowledge on the subject but I'm declaring this a sequel to "Teeth". Come on, look at that still, what else could it be? Anyway, this just got picked up by Anchor Bay. So, "Teeth 2" coming to DVD soon...

Brian Keene is coming to your small screen with "Ghoul"

I'm sure that any of our readers that are a fan of a good book from time to time are familiar with prolific author Brian Keene. He made his mark with some solid zombie novels and then branched out to monsters and more. Outside of a short film based on one of his stories called "The Ties that Bind", he hasn't had any of his properties turned into a full fledged movie as of yet. With his book "Ghoul" however that's all about to change!

Poster: "John Dies at the End" debuts this month

"John Dies at the End", the latest from "Phantasm" and "Bubba Ho-Tep" director Don Coscarelli, debuts at Sundance at the end of this month. Bible Belter... I see what you did there...

Horror Headlines: Tuesday November 30th, 2010

Congratulations makers of "Black Swan". You found a way to make a minute long video of Natalie Portman dancing around the most unattractive thing I've ever seen. Here's what I assume the direction for this was like. "YES! That was good, now do it one more time with more German in your eyes. Ya! Das ist gut mein fraulein!"

Just when you think there's no good left in the world you find out that "The Walking Dead" scored 5.6 million viewers this past Sunday. This is actually more than the pilot episode and all signs point to this Sunday's season finale doing even better. If "Glee" ends up getting canceled my entire outlook on life is going to change.

For those of you who didn't get a chance to see "Hatchet II" before America flexed its biceps and yanked it from theaters, you're in luck. The slasher flick will get an On Demand release on December 1st and more importantly be available on countless torrent sites by the end of the week. I can't be the only one who wants to see the makers of this movie end up homeless. Somebody else chime in here!

Kevin Smith plans on screening his new creepy flick "Red State" at Sundance in 2011 and apparently wants to immediately auction off distribution rights after the screening. People of Hollywood I am speaking to you directly now. I've never asked you for anything but for this I will beg. Please, when that no talent overrated pile of turds starts the bidding please please please don't bid. I want to see what it looks like when a human actually cries cake frosting and this may be my only chance.

In Real People News: 

I've said this a thousand times and now I have proof. Pennsylvania has the worst drivers in the world and this girl who actually managed to get her truck up in a tree is living proof. Sometimes it's boring being right all the time... but not this time.

This might be the quickest I've ever gone from excited to disappointed in my life. Here's how my thought process went as I skimmed this article. Holy crap they are going to announce that aliens are real? At a Ramada Inn? That's kind of weird. Oh crap, it's a 65 year old man who prayed to Jesus to send him a snowball with proof. Crap.

Horror Headlines: Monday February 1st, 2010

Ti West prepares to head behind the camera once again, this time with a spooky tale of a haunted hotel in "The Innkeepers".

Jessica Alba finds herself headlining a controversial horror film that was the last to be picked up at the recent Sundance Film Festival. Alba left part way through the first screening of "The Killer Inside Me", leaving director Michael Winterbottom to field angry questions as to why it was necessary to show such gratuitous violence towards women.

The Syfy Channel continues its legacy of "high quality" films as it prepares to revisit some classic fairy tales, with a twist. Slated for remakes are "Little Red Riding Hood", and "Hansel and Gretel".

Daniel Craig will be exchanging his dapper "Bond" trappings for a set of spurs as he signs on to headline Jon Favreau's big screen adaptation of "Cowboys & Aliens".

Scout Taylor-Compton rambles on via YouTube about why she doesn't want to play Laurie Strode in a Zombie-less "Halloween 3". She never mentions if anyone has actually ASKED her to.

In Real People News: 

A Japanese man strikes five people with his truck, then gets out and stabs twelve more. All of this to take out his frustration from being bullied by trolls on his favorite internet forum.

A Chicago woman is suing the Metra train company, claiming that after using one of their on board toilets, she was sprayed with her own feces upon flushing. Um, gross.

On this day in history: 

2003 - The Space Shuttle Columbia blows up on re-entry.

"Pencil Face" Short Film

There are very few things in this great big ol' world that completely creep me out. Spiders -- big or small -- do a pretty good job of getting the goose pimple factory up and running, as do most David Lynch films and people with unreasonable underbites, the latter of which I cannot readily explain. Whatever the case may be, they frighten the hell out of me. All apologies to anyone who might be offended by that statement.
