Horror Headlines 3/12/08

Yesterday I was posting creepy midget videos, and today it's target="_blank">creepy trailers. At the link, find the new trailer for "The Strangers", a home invasion flick starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman. After many delays, this film will finally be hitting theaters May 30th of this year.

Perhaps to wash the taste of "Diary of the Dead" out of our mouths, this year will see a special HD theatrical release of Romero's "Night of the Living Dead", in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the film. There are no real details other than that, so keep your eyes peeled for more!

Sort of good news for the "Rosemary's Baby" remake today, Platinum Dunes has made a statement about their intentions, and it seems they are going to be very faithful to the original. They state, "Platinum Dunes plans to be meticulous with the remake, knowing it has been entrusted with a jewel from the Paramount library."

target="_blank">The clips are starting to roll in for "The Ruins", to be released April 4th. I don't know what it is about this flick, but every time I see href="http://www.apple.com/trailers/dreamworks/theruins/trailer1a/"
target="_blank">the trailer I'm completely transfixed. I just have to know what the hell is going on. Hopefully I won't be disappointed when all is revealed.

Wait, Charlie Sheen is href="http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/11579"
target="_blank">starring in a revenge themed horror flick from Twisted Pictures? That seems just crazy enough to work. You've gotta love Sheen, but I haven't really seen him in years, since I refuse to watch the comedic-abortion "Two and a Half Men"... so hopefully this will turn out to be watchable.

Finally today, I'm being told that the trailer for "The Lost Boys 2" was supposed to show up on this page (over at MTV Films) at 8am this morning. As of this moment, it's still not up, but you can check the link to see if it's there yet. As soon as I get a chance to see it you can be sure I'll chime in. Would you expect anything less?

In Real People News: 

Esquire is href="http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080310.
crosbie11/BNStory/Front/" target="_blank">now my favorite magazine, because for this month's article on the scary corners of the interwebs, they force George Clooney to sit down and watch "2-girls, 1-cup". If you have no idea what I'm talking about, consider yourself lucky. And please, don't do a Google search.

The results are in, and it turns out that href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7290088.stm" target="_blank">1 in 4 American teenage girls have an STD. Jesus! That's it, if you need me, I'll be in my bubble.

On this day in history: 

1980: A Chicago jury finds John Wayne Gacy guilty of the murders of 33 men and boys. The next day, he is sentenced to death; after years on death row, Gacy is finally executed in May 10, 1994.
