Every time I watch an episode of "Shahs of Sunset" a little bit of me dies. Just to be clear I've watched every episode this season. I have trouble looking at myself in the mirror.
The internerds are all a flutter about a new rumor floating around that Mark Frost and David Lynch are in talks with NBC to revive the "Twin Peaks" series for a third season. Whether or not the rumors are true remain to be seen but if they are it sounds like Lynch is hoping most or all of the original cast will return and the series will pick after the same amount of time it's been since the show went off the air. I never watched the show so I really don't have anything funny to tack on here. Kyle MacLachlan looks like he wears women's underwear though.
If you've been waiting around with baited breath for the new A&E series "Bates Motel" well I have good news for your and your mouth. The show will finally hit the airwaves on March 18th for your viewing pleasure. I mean it's not great news. The series based on the Alfred Hitchcock's classic film "Psycho" is still a couple months away. And it won't be on till 10 pm. So you still have some waiting to do. I'm sorry I got your hopes up.
It sounds like NBC may not be done with a reboot of "The Munsters" series after all. Days after it was announced they would not be moving forward with Bryan Fuller's "Mockingbird Lane" the channels main man Bob Greenblatt came out saying they won't rule out do another show based on the series. He went on to say he likes the idea of a new show but "Mockingbird Lane" just didn't work. So kind of a big "it's not me it's you" to Fuller. He then returned all of Fuller's t-shirts that he had in his closet. And tore all the pictures of the two of them together in half. It was really ugly.
So "Texas Chainsaw 3D" brought the ruckas big time this weekend at the box office. The new sequel, retelling or whatever the hell you want to call it of Tobe Hooper's classic 1974 chainsaw romp took in $23 million this past weekend making it number 1, beating out "Django Unchained" and "The Hobbit" and pretty much guaranteeing we'll see sequel. Or a threequil. Or a prequel? I saw the flick and I honestly have no idea what to call it.
In Real People News:
If you're going to rob a store you might want to come up with a get away plan that doesn't involve calling your mom and asking for a ride. I mean you obviously set up a time for your mom to meet you. Moms are never late. Unless it's on a sitcom and you're getting out of soccer practice. That's just common knowledge.
Two California teen girls are under arrest after they drugged their parents milkshake so they could get onto the internet. I'm not saying I condone this but I understand. Sometimes you really just need to watch some porn.
As with many of its 70's horror franchise contemporaries, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" has become a series whose present continues to lose connection with its past, even as new entries stumble over themselves to pay homage to their roots. In 1974, Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel captured lightning in a bottle with a chaotic, nasty film about a family of cannibals living deep in the heart of Texas.
Anchor Bay has decided to thrust their revenge flick "Girls Against Boys" NYC and LA theaters on February 1st, 2013. The film stars Danielle Panabaker as a girl who finds herself being tormented by a number of different men before she finally snaps and goes on a killing spree. There's a time of the month joke here, right? I'll let you make your own.
I'm pretty sure at some point I mentioned the new flick "The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes" but in all honestly I huffed A TON of different things when I was in High School so some of the old brain beans are pretty fried at this point. Anyway the film, about a reporter who puts together a team to investigate the happenings in the famous house, has finally be slapped with a January 3rd, 2014 release date. I look forward to catching up with you again on this topic in 6 to 7 months.
"Texas Chainsaw 3D" doesn't hit theaters for a couple weeks but star Alexandra Daddario is already excited to get a sequel going. Not that one has been confirmed or anything. Apparently she just wanted to make sure everyone knew she doesn't die in this one. So um, spoiler alert or something.
Damon Lindelof has dropped word that he will not be returning to pen the script for "Prometheus 2". Apparently he's just too swamped right now with his other projects to dedicate what he expects to be 2 years worth of production to the sequel. Oh and he wasn't asked yet either. But ya know, he's got hand.
As the "Game of Thrones" fans will tell you, 'winter is coming'. And with it a new batch of horror flicks that genre fans can get relatively excited about during the post-Halloween hangover. So here's 9 to look out for during the winter to come...
