Horror Headlines: Thursday January 8th, 2009

There's lots of "Twilight" news floating out there today, but this is just your friendly reminder that if you want that sort of thing, you'll have to look elsewhere. If you happened to end up here looking for a respite from the non-stop teenie vampire coverage on other sites, welcome! We shall be your oasis my friend.

Good news for all you 80's vampire fans out there, the "Fright Night" remake is officially dead. Sony Screen Gems is ditching the project after several different writers attempted to take it on, including the original director Tom Holland. Commence your rejoicing now. Oh, and if Sony Screen Gems sounds familiar, just remember that they're the ones behind the "Prom Night" remake that almost destroyed the podcast. NEVER FORGET.

19 inch Jason action figure! Not sure if this guy would play nicely with the one I have from "Freddy Vs Jason", but I'll only find out if one of our lovely readers buys me one ;)

New to Blu-Ray this June 16th, "Ghostbusters! Just a word of warning to horror fans though, I have heard that some films are being released "upscaled". In other words, not a true HD transfer, just to suck money out of fans wallets. Someone with more knowledge on the subject may be able to better enlighten you as to how to tell the difference.

New pics from "House on Sorority Row" remake.... which dare I say, are a little saucy? The plot follows closely to the original, with the sisters this time causing the death of one of their own in a prank rather than their house mother. Needless to say, a mysterious killer shows up and starts offing them one by one.

HorrorMovies.ca scores an exclusive still from "My Bloody Valentine 3d", which is posted here along with a few others. Included is a still where the killer stalks a girl... in a grocery store? I hear the freezer aisle is wild in 3D.

In Real People News: 

So many great aspects to this article. 4 year old boy pissed at his babysitter for stepping on his foot goes to room, retrieves shotgun and lets one rip at the man... who's named "Mr. Beavers". Sweet Jesus I don't even know what to say after that.

Man gets caught hanging upside down from a chairlift... with his wind-chapped bum exposed for all to see. With "damn, that sucks" pictures at the link.

Man dies in his home, and police discover a bizarre series of tunnels inside his house fashioned out of garbage. The smell was so bad and tunnels so intricate, a DIVING TEAM had to be called in to retrieve his body. A neighbor claims he was "slightly eccentric", winning the award for understatement of the year.

On this day in history: 

1992: George Bush, sick with the stomach flu, decides not to excuse himself at a Tokyo state dinner. He vomits in the lap of the Japanese Prime Minister while cameras are rolling, to the great amusement of everyone except the Prime Minister.
