Horror Headlines: Thursday March 25th, 2010

If you're lucky and say your prayers every night this week, Surprisingly, Magnolia will be handling distribution this time around. Good for them.

While everyone else and their kinky grandmother is attending HorrorHound Weekend, I will be sitting quietly in my living room, staring blankly at the June 7th release date for Noboru Iguchi's Japanese gore epic "RoboGeisha" I've marked on my 2010 Adorable Kittens calendar. Can you tell I'm pretty excited about this one? I thought so.

You know what's fishy about the launch of the official "Piranha 3D" website? No trailer. In fact, there's not a single promotional clip to be found anywhere on the page. If the studio wants me to stay interested until August 27th, they'd better deliver a theatrical trailer in HD post-haste. Pretty please. With Elizabeth Shue.

In Real People News: 

If suffering the frigid temperatures wasn't torture enough, residents of St. Petersburg, Russian are struggling to avoid being impaled by enormous icicles falling from the sky. The descending debris has already claimed the lives of five people.

The next time you get into an argument with your ex-girlfriend, try jumping out of the moving vehicle you're sharing at the time. If she comes back, it's true love. If not, roll onto the shoulder so you don't cause an accident. And stop being so selfish all the time. Sheesh.

On this day in history: 

1988 - "Preppie murderer" Robert E. Chambers Jr. pleads guilty to first-degree manslaughter.



Todd has been a slave to the horror genre for as long as he can remember. After cutting his teeth on late-night Cinemax schlock and the low-budget offerings found on the classic USA program "Up All Night," our hero moved valiantly into the world of sleazy obscura, consuming the oddest films from around the world with the reckless abandon of a man without fear or reason. When he isn't sitting mindlessly in front of a television set, he can be found stuffing music, video games, and various literary scribblings into his already cluttered mindscape.
