Horror Headlines 2/22/08

As much as I hate linking to Corey Feldman's blog, he updated today with a little tidbit about "Lost Boys 2: The Tribe". In his latest post, he claims that a trailer for the film will be on the DVD for Will Smith's "I Am Legend" ( href="http://bloodygoodhorror.net/movies/i-am-legend-2007-jon"
target="_blank">Review). He also claims that the decision to go theatrical or not has not yet been made. Well, now I have two reasons not to buy "I Am Legend" on DVD.

Before that story hit STYD was also reporting on href=http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news/topnews.php?id=4852"
target="_blank">a new still from the film, actually featuring one of the vampires. It's the first vampire I've ever seen in a hoodie, but looks decent nonetheless.

Hugo Weaving target="_blank">has joined the cast of Joe Johnston's "Wolfman" remake. If you know that name from somewhere but can't figure out where, I'll give you this clue: "Mr. Andersooooooooonnnnnnnn!"

Novelist Brett Easton Ellis has signed on to adapt the novel "Downer's Grove" for the big screen. The book will reportedly center on "Chrissie Swanson, a paranoid high school senior for whom graduating has become a matter of life or death." Brett Easton Ellis was a pretty groundbreaking author in the 80's, who is probably most well known for
his books "Less than Zero" and "American Psycho"... both of which have film adaptations worth checking out.

So, BD has two target="_blank">stills from the remake of "Terror Train", just called "Train". And, I somehow managed to avoid the fact that Thora Birch is starring in this until now. Oh Thora, what has happened to you? Just yesterday I was staring at your boobs in one of the best films ever, "American Beauty", and today you're starring in this? This has shaken my whole world view people.

In Real People News: 

Remember that guy, Drew Peterson, whose wife "disappeared" recently in a very suspicious manner? You'll also remember that he claimed she left him for another man, even though she has completely dropped off the face of the earth. Well, a second autopsy on his former wife concluded that she was target="_blank">also murdered. Notice I say also... just using my powers of deduction here people.

Apparently Satan has possessed a talking Elmo doll in northern Florida. Either that, href="http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/feb/21/toddlers-elmo-doll-makes-
death-threats/" target="_blank">or Elmo's a Dick. You be the judge.

On this day in history: 

1993: The United States Supreme Court rejects a move by singer Chuck Berry to move his case to Federal court. Various women sued Berry alleging he videotaped them going potty in his St. Louis restaurant.
