Horror Headlines: Thursday October 8th, 2009

Brad Anderson, of "Session 9" fame, has signed on to direct "The Living and the Dead" for Solipsist films. The story is about a "monstrous character who engages in the 19th century version of snuff theater, luring innocent poeple in a Grand Guignol of flesh and blood".

"Paranormal Activity" producers ready to sell spec for "The Jealous One".

I'm just as surprised as this guy is that Syfy has yet to make a film about the Mongolian Deathworm. Looks like we're both getting our wish?

Check out the trailer for Rob Hall's web series "Fear Clinic". Hall is fresh off his direct to video slasher "Laid To Rest". This new series will be airing exclusively on FearNET.

In Real People News: 

You may have thought that owning 80 cats had something to do with the fire that destroyed this woman's home, but you'd be wrong... it was actually a colony of ants who were nesting around an electrical outlet. That is some seriously impressive hygiene, right there.

Tough guys think they're going to beat up on a couple of fellas in drag, turns out they're cage fighters on a "fancy dress stag night" out with friends. Fierce ass-kicking ensues.

This is officially the first time I've ever heard of someone being murdered over a BAM-BAM pendant. Or really, anything BAM-BAM related. He must have been a huge Flinstones fan.

People trying support local farmers by buying locally grown marijuana in California are putting financial hurt on Mexican drug cartels. Go Mom & Pop!!

On this day in history: 

1966: Lysergic Acid (LSD) is enrolled on the list of controlled substances.

Feed (REVIEW)

The internet has been a great boon for many, from pirates to pornographers to Nigerian royalty, but perhaps no one has benefited as much from the endless, unfiltered knowledge on tap through the web than horror filmmakers. Before the internet filmmakers had to work hard to come up with original ways to shock and disgust the audience. It took a true artist to push the boundaries and dare the audience to look upon things that might be better left unseen.

Horror Headlines: Thursday April 16th, 2009

One of the stars of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles", Thomas Dekker has signed on to co-star in Platinum Dunes' "A Nightmare on Elm St." remake. A self described horror fan, Dekker will share on screen time with the other male lead, Kyle Gallner from "The Haunting in Connecticut".

New UK quad for Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell", revamped with lots of shiny new pull-quotes. Not sure I feel good about the biggest one being "Ain't It Cool News" (does anyone really read that site?), but it seems that the buzz is starting out good nonetheless. The film hits theaters May 29th.

New pic from "H2", showing Myers stabbing the crap out of someone in what appears to be a hospital. Zombie has said that only a brief portion of the film will take place in the hospital, and that it will not be a direct remake of 1981's "Halloween II".

I know we shouldn't encourage the guys over at Asylum, known for their terrible, awful little movies with blatantly ripped-off titles, but I just can't help it. Here's the teaser trailer for "The Terminators", which hits DVD April 28th.

"Wrong Turn 3" director Declan O'brien to remake "Little Shop of Horrors", with help from "Bourne" producer. Nope, not making that up. He also says he'll be "taking it in a different direction". Not sure what that means, but feel free to speculate wildly in the comments.

Patrick Tatopoulos to direct adaptation of the forthcoming comic book "I, Frankenstein". The story shows old school monsters who have evolved and are living in a modern film-noir setting.

In Real People News: 

Remember when your mom told you if you swallowed watermelon seeds they would grow in your stomach? Ya, that wasn't cool, but that's not the point of this story. A man in Russia had surgery recently to investigate his excruciating chest pain, Doctors find a Fir tree growing in his lungs. Source is complete with pictures!

Two Dominos employees are facing criminal charges after filming themselves messing with a customer's food and putting it on Youtube. A manager claims it was "just a prank" and "the food was never sent out". Mmm hmmm...

Want to feel old? The Columbine shootings happened 10 years ago today. The article at the link is a great read, claiming that most of what we've been told about the duo in the last decade is actually false.

On this day in history: 

1943: Chemist Albert Hofmann inadvertently experiences the world's first acid trip when a tiny quantity of lysergic acid diethylamide accidently seeps through the skin of his finger. After leaving work early, he went home and settled into "a not unpleasant intoxicated condition." Then he had solid two hours of visual hallucinations
