the last house on the left

Horror Headlines: Monday August 18th, 2013

"Plus One" is the latest film from "The Last House On the Left" director Dennis Iliadis and it looks like the folks over at IFC have slapped it with a September 20th release date. The film is about three college students who go to a big old party and find all kinds of spooky crap going down there. And I'm not just talkin about the drunkin goth chicks from Alpha Omega Pi! Am I right fellas? High five! Oh god I wish I hadn't gone to an art school.

Joseph Kosinski, the handsome gentlemen who directed "Oblivion" is apparently the latest name to be tossed out for the upcoming "The Twilight Zone" directing spot. No word on when filming would start, who the writer will be or if Kosinski will back out like a gaggle of others already have so I for one am stilling holding out that I will be offered the job. I did take a intro to film course in college and if I remember right I got a B+. Call me.

More and more cool ass crap keeps coming out about Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights and now there's word of a haunted attraction based on the classic flick "An American Werewolf in London". This would be exciting news even if it wasn't a spooky time attraction. You know how I love fish and chips don't you. You don't? Well I do and I'm a little upset that I've been writing the news for over three years now and you don't really seem to know a thing about me. My eyes are up here buddy!

"Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D" is still apparently a thing and it looks like R. Madhavan has officially been added to the cast. The film is a retelling of the classic zombie flick with a new setting, the city so nice they named it twice, New York, New York. You might know R. Madhavan from his numerous Bollywood films or if you're like me and completely ignorant you might know him from absolutely nothing at all.

In Real People News: 

Canadian police rescued 20 pythons being held in plastic crates in a hotel room recently. 1, I had no idea there were police in Canada. 2, that hotel should be burned to the ground because snakes are awful creatures that don't belong on this planet. And 3, the ashes of that hotel should be burned again because ghost snakes are a real thing and must be stopped.

The daughter of the last king of Romania is being brought up on charges for allegedly leading a cockfighting ring in Oregon. Wait... what?

BGH Classic Pack - Remake-Apolooza! Vol. 3

Remakes: can't live with'em, can't murder everyone involved with'em. The silver lining of course is that modern horror's remake insanity has given rise to some epic podcast episodes. In previous classic packs we've combined some of the best and worst of recent horror remakes.

Horror Headlines: Thursday January 31st, 2013

Who gives a crap that there's already a movie called "Dark Skies", lets make a different one and let's make it about sharks. F the system! Let's also get Tara Reid, because she is surprisingly available, and let's toss in Cassie Scerbo and Ian Ziering, two people I don't know but look like they're pretty close to doing soft core porn. Let's make it about LA being flooded and people fighting sharks. Let's just say F you logic and reasoning.

I have always been baffled by the music in the original "The Last House on the Left" but I'm guessing some people love it so the folks at One Way Static Records are releasing the soundtrack on vinyl for the very first time. For those of you not in the know, the soundtrack was composed by David Hess, who played "Krug" in the film. He's also the same guy who had an hour long conversation with Jon from the podcast about baseball at Horror Hound Weekend a few years back and then shot him down for a photo. He's also dead.

Sony has bumped up the release of the upcoming "Evil Dead" remake to April 5th. The move is mostly due to some other film's release date shifting but still, let's call this a good thing. Let's also agree to ever talk about the one night we both went to Hooters and ended up going to the bathroom at the same time and may or may not have compared sizes. No one should ever know about that.

So "Wolf Creek 2" is happening and it looks like John Jarratt, who played the creepy killer in the first flick, will be returning. Some other Australian folks who no one knows (sorry Australian readers) will also be in the flick which will follow a group of backpackers who encounter a strange local, so pretty much the same plot as the first film.

In Real People News: 

What do you do when cops catch you running around town nude? Well if you're this guy from Louisiana you break into song and start pleasuring yourself. I'm not saying that's right or wrong. I'm just giving you options.

Hey remember Jason London from "Dazed and Confused"? He played the... well the stoner guy but that was pretty much everyone in the film but whatever. Well he shit himself in the back of a cop car. Don't worry, he apparently did it on purpose after getting into a fight with cops because he sneezed on a bouncer.

Podcast Classics Revisited - Episode 66: "The Last House on the Left"

This week, myself and the rest of the Podcast crew are heading out to theaters to catch Jennifer Lawrence's new jam, "The House at the End of the Street". Now, I realize that you're sitting there at your desk now, wondering "Why the hell is Casey telling us this in a post about "The Last House on the Left"; be honest, the reason is stupid at best but here it is:

"Smash Cut", More Pornstars in Horror

If there's a combo for a horror movie that will pretty much guarantee every fan is going to watch it, I would say it’s put a cult icon on screen with a porn star. That’s just putting two and two together, people. Well the producers behind “Smash Cut” are clearly aware of this formula, as they have put David Hess, star of “The Last House on the Left” and “Swamp Thing” alongside the star of “Finger Licking Good: Volume 5” and “House of Ass 3”, Sasha Grey.
