Horror Headlines: Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Canadian director Bruce McDonald has named "Dark Highway" as his next venture into the world of horror. The film tells the story of a man who struggles with what is real and what isn't while he tries to complete a day long journey. You might know McDonald from his previous film "Pontypool" which the majority of us went gaga for. Or if you're Canadian you might know him from the maple syrup isle of your local grocery store.

Vanessa Hudgens has joined the cast of "Frozen Ground", a new film which tells the story of serial killer Robert Hansen, a Alaskan man who abducted 24 women and hunted them on his land. John Cusack and Nic Cage were previously confirmed to play Hansen and the officer who must find the bodies of the victims and I've already used my "Con-Air" jokes so lets just move along.

"Resident Evil: Retribution" is the next installment in the "Resident Evil" series and it looks like Colin Salmon, who you might remember from the first film, has joined the cast. Fans of the VH1 series "Single Ladies" might also recognize Salmon from his role of Jerry Waters, the witty fast talking lawyer with a heart of gold. I'm kidding, I have no idea what that show is about or if it's still on the air.

A gaggle of new stills and a teaser for "Dog Soldiers: Legacy", a new web series based on the 2002 Neil Marshall film, have popped up online thanks to Ryan Lightbourn. I say thanks because it looks kind of fun but if it turns out to be crap I'll take that thanks right away Mr. Lightbourn, if that is your real name. Anyway it looks like a sequel for the werewolf flick is also in the works so get excited. Or don't.. no skin off my back either way.

Now I'm not an expert on the subject but I'm thinking if you're going to be shooting kiddie porn on your camera you might not want to take it down to the local CVS for development. But here's a D.C. man who did just that. Who uses regular film anymore? Upgrade to digital buddy, it's what all the deviants are doing.

It's good to be proud of your daughters for winning a fight, I think. It's bad to video tape your two daughters fighting and posting it on the internet though. I know that because this Indiana woman went to jail for it. That's the only reason I know it to be honest.

Horror Headlines: Monday December 6th, 2010

"Battle: Los Angeles" is my favorite Rage Against the Machine album that I never actually heard and they've finally made a movie about it. What's better? There's a new trailer for the alien invasion flick. What that has to do with the album I have no idea but I assume it's some sort of weird political thing I don't get.

The MPAA has taken it upon themselves to ban the poster for the upcoming Stevan Mena movie "Bereavement". The poster depicts a child walking with his father while holding a butcher knife. Apparently the MPAA isn't a fan of toddlers walking around with murder weapons. I don't get it.

Aaron Echhart has officially confirmed the heartbreaking news that Two-Face will not being appearing in "The Dark Knight Rises". And when I say heartbreaking I really mean to Eckhart because last week it was confirmed that Heath Ledger would be making an appearance as The Joker and he's dead. Got to be a blow to the old ego.

Finally! "Beastly" is back in the spotlight with a new trailer and a big thumbs up from me. For those of you not familiar with the film all you need to know is that it stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris and Peter Krause. The movie was delayed months ago for being so awesome that the studio worried that people's heads would explode from excitement if it was released in the summer months.

In Real People News: 

"Jenkem" is a hallucinogenic drug made from the gas of fermented sewage... and one man making it in a Florida apartment got his entire building condemned from the smell. Apparently he had his entire apartment covered with human waste to the point that it was starting to drip into the apartment below. I just threw up in my mouth thinking about it.

Tis the season in Idaho, kids. We're all drinking egg nog, the kids are out sledding and the white supremacists are out making KKK snowmen. It really warms your heart.
