the silent house

Horror Headlines: Monday January 24th, 2011

James Wan and Leigh Whannell are the duo that brought you "Saw" and now they've got a trailer for a new film called "Insidious". It's a heartwarming tale of a kid that lives in a house that's having all kind of weird haunted type stuff going on in it. Here's the catch though, it's not the house that's haunted, it's the kid! Dun dun duuuuun!

Last week we talked about our feelings and the fact that there might be an Alfred Hitchcock biopic in the works. Well now we can chat again because there's rumors that Sir Anthony Hopkins is the front runner to play our favorite rollie pollie horror icon. We should also make childish comments about the name Hitchcock and giggle like girls.

"The Silent House" is a movie from Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, the peeps who brought you "Open Water" and today the film's got a clip up on the tubes. Doesn't look like too silent of a house to me! Get it? Cause of the title? It's a pun... or a play on words... or a poem. I don't know.

Is there a video game version of "The Walking Dead" in the works? The world may never know! Wait no, that's wrong. We'll know, we'll know on February 17th when game developers Telltale announce their new big game that's based on a "a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it." It really could be anything!

Finally someone has the guts to stand up to hookers who half ass their jobs! Hubert Blackman recently filed a lawsuit against a call girl service in Vegas after the girl he paid to have sex with ditched out on him after a half hour even though he paid for a full hour. Justice must be served!

Sometimes the stress of being a teacher just gets to be too much and you need to take some time off. Like this second grade teacher in Oakland who went on administrative leave after a number of sex acts, including oral sex, happened in the class while while the teacher was actually in the class. So now second graders are getting further then I did in High School. Nothing depressing about that!

Wait a second, there's a third Olsen twin?! Yes I know that doesn't make any sense but work with me here. Elizabeth Olsen stars in the new remake of "The Silent House", a movie I did not know existed let alone was being remade, but none of that matters now that we have a third Olsen twin. Rejoice!

There's a new "Scream 4" trailer! Get pumped people. The best part? I'm 99% sure it features the exact same clips that were in that Canadian trailer that made it's way to the tubes a few days back. Isn't that awesome?! Things I've seen before are fun to watch again!

Adrien Brody has been fighting to keep his film "Giallo", which is suppose to be a giant pile of doodie, from finding its way to DVD. Don't worry though the legal fun had nothing to do with the quality of the movie, Brody just wanted to make sure he was paid in full for his "acting skills". I like to use sarcasm quotes. Anyway the suit is settled and the flick will now find its way to DVD. Happy days!

Sacha Gervasi, the guy who made the kick ass documentary "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" is currently working on a new biopic of one Mr. Alfred Hitchcock. No the film will not be a documentary but I like to think that Gervasi isn't just a one trick pony. I for instance am good at both drinking beer and downloading illegal porn. Some people are just gifted.

Fever, weakness, loss of initiative, headache, disordered speech, irritability, forgetfulness, frightening dreams and swollen lips and throat. These are all things a man know as Mr. A suffered from after he had an orgasm as he is actually allergic to them. Good news those, the big doctors think they've cured him! Not going to lie, I get 5 of these 9 things also and I thought it was normal. Try to guess which ones!

I have a real problem when I read the town name Tucson and I always think it's Tuscany. So when I read a restaurant in Tuscon is selling tacos made with lion meat I thought, "wow, those Italians are a bunch of sickos". Boy is my face red now!
