Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 17th, 2009
"Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre may be the next big foreign slasher film, but if they expect me to do anything but belly laugh when I read about it, they better change that damn name, and fast. Teaser trailer at the link.
Talk about obscure, Fango reports that there is a remake of the UK exploitation film "The House on Straw Hill" underway. The original is apparently still banned in the UK, and deals with a writer in an old house whose assistant turns violent and homicidal.
Mick Garris hopes to be shooting Stephen King's "Bag of Bones" this summer in Maine, however some haggling must first be done, since Maine doesn't offer the kind of incentives that other states do when it comes to filming there.
If you're curious to see how the "House on Sorority Row" remake is coming along (titled just "Sorority Row"), prints of the trailer are reported to be attached to Nic Cage's "Knowing", which hits theaters this weekend. Or you can just wait until Monday when it shows up online. Probably better for your health.
Looks like there's going to be a "Lost Boys III", and Corey Feldman will be producing. Shockingly, he will also be the "focus" of the film. Weird how that works out when you're the producer, huh?
Dan Harris, writer of "X-Men 2" and "Superman Returns" has been picked to write the film adaptation of EA's "Dante's Inferno" game which is currently in development.
Look, I thought it was clear but let's reiterate. If you're a cop and you stop at any restaurant whatsoever, check your food for pubes before you leave with the bag. It will save you the time of having to go back later.
Perv puts "spy camera" inside Starbucks bathroom, forgets to delete picture of himself on the camera. Complete with "is that Paul Ruebens?" mugshot at the link.
This is by far the creepiest/awesomest story of the week. Man loses finger in motorcycle accident, doctors build him a prosthetic one, complete with a built-in USB stick!. Apparently, he's also a Linux user. This is really cool, until of course USB sticks go out of style. Imagine having a floppy disc attached to your fake hand?
1970: Country Joe McDonald (of Country Joe and the Fish) is convicted on obscenity charges after he asks for an F, a U, a C, and one other letter at a concert in Massachusetts.
