that's just gross

Horror Headlines: Monday October 19th, 2009

Derek Mears, your current "Jason Voorhees", joins the cast of Robert Rodriguez's "Predators". Which makes sense, because he's just about the most terrifying human being I've ever seen. In real life that is, not so much in "Friday the 13th".

Paramount is Throwing 10 parties to celebrate this weekend's success of "Paranormal Activity". Find out how you can attend at the link.

Check out these early images from John Carpenter's big screen return "The Ward".

Scott Derrickson, director of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", has signed on to direct the supernatural thriller "The Living".

Follow me on this one. A script that's been floating around called "Nightcrawlers", has officially gotten a director in Mike Mitchell. It also has a new name... "Monster Squad". Apparently the horror/comedy is being turned into a psuedo/not really remake of Fred Dekker's 80's classic. Here's more info.

In Real People News: 

I always felt a little uncomfortable during drunk taxi rides. Now I know why.

When you hear the phrase "fireworks warehouse in India", you pretty much assume this is how it's going to end.

Oh Halloween... that wonderful time of year when dead bodies are mistaken for Holiday decorations. It's a horror fan's delight really.

On this day in history: 

1982: Maverick carmaker John DeLorean is arrested in Los Angeles with $24M worth of cocaine in his suitcase. The case is later thrown out of court when a judge rules that the FBI sting operation constituted entrapment.

If "Survival of the Dead" goes well, George Romero plans to make more sequels. At this point, "beating a dead horse" doesn't even apply anymore.

Early concept art for "Night of the Living Dead: Origins", the so-called "3D American Anime" remake of the Romero classic. Although, someone a lot nerdier than me is going to have to explain to you what the hell that means.

Danny Trejo scores a role in Robert Rodriguez's "Predators".

In Real People News: 

I don't know what kind of a person would complain about women taking their clothes off at an espresso bar, but I think it's safe to say that they're not very good Americans.

A great way to judge how terrible war can be, is by recalling the ways in which people try to get out of it..

Wow... this is just... wow.

On this day in history: 

1978: A nun at the Vatican discovers the lifeless body of Pope John Paul I, formerly Albino Luciani, in bed. The pontiff had been on the job only 33 days before unexpectedly dying in his sleep, after having taken some sort of pills with dinner. The church refuses to grant an autopsy.

Robert Rodriguez has found a writer for "Predators". His name is Alex Litvak, and he has never written a film that has actually been completed, with only one screenplay to his credit which is "currently in production". Um... sweet?

The full list of MTV Movie award nominations is out, and the biggest winner is "Twilight", which somehow garnered more nominations than "The Dark Knight". Also in the "huh?" category, "Prom Night's" Jonathan Skaech nominated for "Best Villian". If all it took for the nomination was to have five o'clock shadow and wear a baseball hat, I should be nominated like, every day.

The first two TV spots for "Drag Me To Hell" have shown up online. We're now just three weeks away from the theatrical release of Sam Raimi's return to horror.

The official plot synopsis for Rob Zombie's "H2" has been released, and while it's not a whole lot of new information, it does mention "an unlikely new hero", something which has not been discussed up until this point. My guess? He's referring to the now damaged Laurie Strode, who I can only expect Zombie is going to have go all "70's revenge movie" on Myers, because you know, that's what he does.

In Real People News: 

So, it's first thing in the morning, would you really like to see a "before and after" photo of the woman who got the world's first face transplant? It's your move, dear readers.

A Chinese woman accidentally bit her bosses penis off while giving him oral sex in a car recently. While engaged in the act, their car was hit by a reversing van, causing the ensuing jaw-clench. I'm guessing she might as well throw any hopes of a positive review out the window right now.

I knew cats were evil. Apparently half the world has been infected by the cat-parasite "Toxoplasma gondii", and it's affecting our personalities. Little bastards.

On this day in history: 

1937: Zeppelin Hindenberg explodes at Lakehurst NJ, leaving 36 dead and others seriously burned. A reporter witnessing the carnage coins the phrase "oh, the humanity!"
