the good the bad and the weird

Horror Headlines: Wednesday January 26th, 2011

Looks like "Scream 4" isn't quite screamy enough yet so Wes Craven is heading back behind the camera to do some re-shoots next week. I'm sure he reads the site so I'd like to talk to Mr. Craven directly now. Wes, can I call you Wes? Wes what's with the cheerleader from "Heroes" looking like a boy? What's say we let that hair grow and and cast her as a girl? You're doing re-shoots anyway. Thanks Wes!

If anyone's written a horror movie lately and wants it picked up now's your chance because Slash is obviously all kinds of drugged up and signing off on just about anything. Over the past few weeks he's signed on to produce a number of flicks with his new Slasher Films company and now we learn he's got two more, "Theorem" from Vincenzo Natali and "The Other Kingdom" from Philip Eisner. Silly top hat.

The South Korean film "I Saw the Devil" finally has a trailer and much to my surprise it is chock full of South Korean people. I have no idea if that's accurate. Kim Jee-woon, the guy who brought you "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", directs the film which marks his first attempt at horror. I don't care what culture you're from, I'm not comfortable with any man being named Kim.

If you're tired of all these big budget exorcism movies then here's "The Disco Exorcist" to save the day. The film is suppose to be another grindhouse romp and I can only assume will feature both a disco and an exorcism. We can only wait and see though folks, I'm not a fortune teller.

In Real People News: 

A 33 year old women in Buenos Aires survived a jump from the 23rd floor of a hotel after landing on a taxi. Which is pretty amazing but what's even more awesome is that there's a photo. Cameras rule!

A Connecticut man when ahead and sued his former job because he says he was wrongfully fired for not being able to urinate on demand for drug tests. Which is funny because if he wins this he'll probably be so excited he'll pee his pants. Get it!

Since what the world needs is another vampire movie right now, "Clueless" director Amy Heckerling and Alicia Silverstone are teaming up for the blood-sucking chick flick "Vamps". Vampire finding love in New York? As if!

On the remake front, Anchor Bay has reportedly snapped up distribution rights for Steven R. Monroe's remake of Meir Zarchi's 1978 exploitation epic "I Spit on Your Grave", which stars Sarah Butler, Daniel Franzese, Chad Lindberg, Rodney Eastman and Andrew Howard.

A batch of creepy stills have been released for the Filmax's English-language possession flick "Exorcismus". Considering this is from the studio responsible for "[Rec]" and "[Rec] 2", this should be worth a look.

After years of waiting patiently for its arrival on Region 1, Ji-Woon Kim’s over-the-top South Korean western "The Good, the Bad, and the Weird" is finally coming to North America courtesy of IFC. Better late than never, I suppose.

In Real People News: 

Call me crazy if you must, but I don't think applying over 20 nicotine patches to your body is going to help curb your smoking habit. Drinking and locking yourself in a restaurant bathroom isn't a good idea, either.

Get ready to be utterly depressed: According to reports, the last sardine factory in the United States will close down forever this April. I knew something extremely fishy was going on, but I was hesitant to take the bait.

On this day in history: 

1967 - J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, passes into shadow.
