the blob

Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 22nd, 2011

Rutger Hauer has landed the role of vampire hunter Van Helsing in upcoming Dario Argento film "Dracula 3D". That combined with his role in "Hobo With a Shotgun" has made Hauer the hottest new item in Hollywood. You'll see him on the cover of Bop! and Tiger Beat next month. The girls are going gaga for him.

Rob Zombie recently sat down to discuss his next project titled "Lords of Salem" saying it's the "bleakest of all my films". He goes on to state that the "Blob" remake is no longer happening with him at least and that he won't be touching another remake for a while. Seems he's found there's no real winning with horror fans when it comes to remakes. Kind of makes us sounds like jerks, which is true but still it doesn't have to be said. I have feelings too, Rob!

Australia seems like a happy fun loving place with their Kangaroos and Vegemite but I'm here to tell you they're a bunch of sickos. Case in point is the trailer for the new flick "Bad Behavior" which has a kind of "Clockwork Orange" type vibe to it. Meaning if "Clockwork Orange" had a bald fat man vomiting blood on a women, which I'm 99% sure it didn't.

With its release being only a year away we're all getting really excited for "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters". Did I mention it's going to be in 3D? Anyway Ingrid Bolsø Berdal is the latest witch to be cast in the flick and I assume that means she will in fact be hunted. Of course she should be hunted in real life also, never trust anyone with one of those o's with a line in it in their name. 9 times out of 10 they're complete pricks.

A town in Australia (I told you they're nuts) has decided to kick out 22,000 grey headed flying foxes, aka giant freakin bats, from the national botanical gardens. Where the bats will go no one really knows but I hope it isn't into my apartment complex. We just got rid of our possum problem.

A family in Egypt has gone all out with their love for social networking by naming their newborn baby Facebook. This sounds adorable now but just thing of how pissed this kid would have been if he was born 10 years ago and was walking around named Friendster.

Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of November 11, 2010

Not wanting to be permanently tied to "Twilight", Director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Emile Hirsch are in early talks for a big screen version of "Hamlet". The twist being, both parties are dropping hints that their "Hamlet" will be of the suspense/horror variety. Here's hoping Shakespeare doesn't sparkle.

Rob Zombie has announced his next movie plans, yet another remake, this time of genre classic "The Blob". "My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing, that's the first thing I want to change," Zombie stated in a recent interview. It begs the question; has this guy actually seen 'the blob'?

Deborah Ann Woll, red headed teen-aged vamp of HBO's "True Blood" has signed on for indie supernatural thriller "Little Murder". The film takes place in a post Katrina south and follows a disgraced detective on the hunt of a killer, with the help dead Cellist's ghost.

In case you weren't aware, there's a new movie out today called "H2" directed by Rob Zombie! Fearing that they were too lax in their marketing push, Zombie and crew have released a new motion poster for "H2". Before you click the link, I must warn you; it contains spoilers. Michael Myers stabs people!
