the woman in black

Horror Headlines: Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Today we got a comment on one of our old posts that simple read "sex". I have no idea what it's referring too, the post in no way has anything to do with bumping uglies. It's the greatest comment we've ever received though and I think sums up every reason I do this. And by this I mean bang on a keyboard like a chimp for 30 minutes and send it to Eric (our Editor-in-Chief) to try an decode. You're welcome, world...

Good news for all of you patiently awaiting the first trailer for "Resident Evil: Retribution". January 18th will be the day that the trailer will hit the tubes, it'll then be showing in theaters that weekend before "Underworld: Awakening". The other good news for all of you who are excited about "Resident Evil: Retribution" is that men's Husky pants are on sale this weekend at Sears.

I'm not going to lie, I'm fairly excited for the release of "The Woman In Black". It looks creepy, that Harry Potter kid looks adorable trying to act all grown up and I'm a sucker for old timey fashions. What can I say. And here's a new poster for the film which hits theaters on February 3th. It has two of the three things I mentioned I love about the film. Oh what I wouldn't give for little Harry Potter to be in the poster smoking a pipe. But instead of smoke coming out of the pipe there's bubbles. How cute would that be!?

Remember how creepy little Isabelle Fuhrman was in "Orphan"? All fake teeth and crap. Well it looks like the little one is now in talks to join the cast of M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming Sifi flick "After Earth". The film tells the story of a world where people no longer live on earth and two hero's who find themselves stranded on the blue orb. Will and Jaden Smith are also a part of the cast. If there was any way I could pinch this movies cheeks I think I would.

It looks like "The Devil Inside" director William Brent Bell and co-writer Matthew Peterman are off to Romania to film a new as of yet titled horror flick. It's going to be a found footage film.... and it's going to be called "The Devil Insider"... and it's going to suck. Alright those last two things are lies. Well the second to last. I can't comment on the whole sucking thing. I'm not god.

In Real People News: 

Drunk girls can be so fun! Here's a story about one in Connecticut who punched a cab driver and then tried to use the excuse that she's disabled when she was arrested. She isn't and it didn't work. So she went with the "It's always the illegals that get away with the (some foul words no website will print)." Oddly enough, that didn't work either.

A 62 year old woman in Florida is under arrested after she bashed her husband head in with a hammer because he was watching Judge Judy. I've always said that those Judge Joe Brown fans are a danger to society and need to be locked up.

The 10 part Scandinavian series "Real Humans" has yet to actually air but it looks like it's already been picked up for a US remake. The show is set in a workplace where robots have become so human that they've become an integrated part of society. Is it too late to make an Al Gore joke? That's really all I got here.

I haven't watched the NBC series "Grimm" but I enjoy the commercials for it and therefore consider myself the show's biggest fan. So I couldn't be more excited to hear the news that the good people at the NB of C's have decided to pick up the show for a full season. The show follows a detective who discovers he can see some humans as beasts and is determined to protect the rest of us from them. Really, the commercials are delightful, you should check them out.

Listen closely and you can hear BGH's own Casey jumping up and down like a school girl. Why you might ask is he doing this? Because a new book "The Hammer Vault" is hitting stores next month for his and your reading pleasure. Written by Hammer Film historian Marcus Hearn, the book outlines the full history of the classic film company with tons of photos and stories from the people who were there. It might be time for me to finally learn how to read. But how do you write the news, Joe, you might ask? And why are you using the same joke from a few months back? Shut your face.

And here's a new trailer for "The Woman In Black" staring Daniel Radcliffe. I've run out of Harry Potter jokes so just make up your own. Something about a wizard's cap and wand. Maybe something about a broom going somewhere it shouldn't.

In Real People News: 

Ghosts need love too my friends. Sometime they need more than love. This 73 year old woman in England says the ghost haunting her needs to grope her in fact. So much so that she hasn't been able to sleep for the past 4 months. Ghosts with old lady fetishes! What a country! That was a Yakov Smirnoff impression.

A Wyoming high school coach is stepping down after parents were outraged by a "Hurt Feelings Report" he handed out to his players after a loss. A report asking you why your feelings are hurt sounds strange, yes, but it's the options for why the report was being filled out that were included that got him into trouble. For example, "I'm a pussy", "I'm a cry baby" and "I want my mommy". Not going to lie, this guy sounds awesome.

I've never hidden my affection for Rose McGowan and I won't for you or anyone else. Now that we have that out of the way here's some new shots of her in the new film adaption of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". Of course there isn't much a romance in the original story so the makers went ahead and put in a romance so McGowen can strut her stuff. I approve of this.

Vincent D'Onofrio will always be Private Pile to me. In turn he will also always be creepy to me. So here's the first poster for his new film titled "Chained". Jennifer Lynch is directing the flick and D'Onofrio plays a serial killer who kidnaps a 9 year old boys and shows him the ropes. Sounds heartwarming I know. Like "The Karate Kid" with more murdering.

Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe in a world where Daniel Radcliffe is our supreme ruler? These are both questions asked by the new poster for the olden times thriller "The Woman In Black". Alright that second one is more implied and not actually written out but I think we should put some thought into it anyway.

And because you need to be reminded that there's good in the world every once in a while here's a look at Chuck Norris on the set of "The Expendables 2". If that doesn't make you happy I suggest you Google "kittens frolicking" and take a half hour exploring the results.

In Real People News: 

A truck carrying a large load of bees overturned on a Utah highway that ended up having to BEE shut down. Haha see what I did there? Don't mess with bees!

Did you look up the kittens? Well here's a story about a hawk that was found living with a nail in it's head. And yes, there's a photo.

Ahh bizkits! A few months back the BGH crew got a full on robot chubby (name the movie) when we watched "Tucker and Dale vs Evil" and now it looks like the horror comedy is finally getting a DVD and Blu-Ray release. November 29th is the day you can get your disgusting little mits on this romp about a weekend vacation gone wrong. I'm sorry about the disgusting mits comment, I just get so excited sometimes.

Hammer Films' "The Woman In Black" kind of came out of nowhere but hot diggity dog if it hasn't captured my heart and mind. Maybe it's because it's got Harry Potter in it or maybe it's because I'm a sucker for creepy kids. We may never know. But today we've got a new motion poster for the flick that hits theaters on February 3rd. Just to be clear Daniel Radcliffe is in the movie, it isn't really Harry Potter.

If you didn't play "Red Dead Redemption" then I'm not sure I want to be your friend anymore. The game was super dope to the max! And now Christian Cantamessa, the lead designer on the game, is directing and co-writing a new flick called "Wake Cycle". The movie takes place in an underground facility where two workers find they're running out of air after a nuclear fallout. I'm just kidding about the friend thing, I don't know what I'd do if I lost you.

George A. Romero looks to be eyeing a film version of the book "The Zombie Autopsies" which is about a group of scientists who discover that zombie apocalypse was actually brought on by a group trying to topple the economy. Nothing is confirmed on the project and right now it looks like the idea is just a twinkle in Romero's cataract-addled eye but the project sounds right up his alley. And by that I mean boring and confusing to me.

In Real People News: 

I have never wanted to be a cop so bad in my life after reading this story about an Ohio man who released about 50 animals from his small zoo and then killed himself. Why do I want to be a cop? Because how often do you get to hunt and kill a Bengal tiger in the middle of Ohio? If that's not fun I don't know what is.

A New York man is in prison after he was caught selling prescription drugs to people from his ice cream truck. I wonder if he put the pictures of what he had on the side next to the bomb pops and choco taco? I also wonder if his customers called him Big Worm.

"Saw V" director David Hackl is working to distance himself from the tired franchise as he signs on to direct "The Red Machine", a story of two brothers versus a bear.

Robert Kirkman, all star scribe of "The Walking Dead" has launched a new publishing house under the Image Comics banner called "Sky Bound Comics". Here, Kirkman plans to release new original comics from up and coming creators, starting with The Witch Doctor, a tale of a sick world filled with monsters that effect that natural order.

This is what happens when you graduate from Hogwarts; Daniel Radcliffe is expanding his horizons with a starring role in "The Woman in Black", a new feature under development and the newly revived Hammer Studios.

In Real People News: 

Mexico City airport authorities feared the worst when they stopped a man with a mysterious bulge under his t-shirt. Upon further inspection, it wasn't a bomb they discovered but rather 18 endangered monkeys hidden beneath a girdle.

There's an important lesson to be learned here; in Keene, New Hampshire it's not against the law to walk around topless, ladies! However, if you were to have your breasts painted by another woman? That'll get you nailed for lewd behavior.

Michael Rooker will be coming back once again to face off against monsters, this time in an ice fishing trip turned beast battle in "Hypothermia". Let's hope he fares better this time than he did in "Slither".

Hammer Studios continues its rise from the dead by acquiring its next film, a big screen adaptation of Susan Hill's "The Woman In Black".

Director Russell Mulcahy has been tapped to direct the pilot for MTV's recently announced "Teen Wolf" reboot. When you consider Mulcahy directed the classic "Highlander", there is some reason to grow excited. Then you remember he also directed "Highlander 2: The Quickening" and that all goes out the window.

Lakeshore Entertainment and Kevin Grevioux, the team up that brought you "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" are preparing to bring you more of the unique brand of action horror with an adaptation of Grevioux's comic, "I, Frankenstein". At this time, it is still unclear how they will be working in Kate Beckinsale in tight leather.
