Horror Headlines: Friday April 3rd, 2009

Check out 3 stills from the "Saw" video game, a project which we knew was in development but haven't heard anything about in a long time. The game from Konami is set to hit shelves for the 360, PS3 and the PC this October, to coincide with the release of "Saw VI". Sounds smart to me.

"Cirque Du Freak" has a new release date, January 10th, 2009. The film stars Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly and Orlando Jones, and is about a vampire who drafts a 14 year old to serve as his assistant. This date puts it on the (for now) same date as the US remake of "Let The Right One In". Thinking about all those vampire movies in one weekend is making me sick to my stomach already.

Richard Kelly hits up his Myspace to set the record straight on all things "The Box", his latest film set for release opposite "Saw VI" this October. If you take his words at face value, he seems to be tempering the bad buzz that all of the release date shifts have caused. Then again, doesn't every director do that? I guess we'll find out who was right in about 6 months.

I don't know anything about this movie other than the fact that it's called "Slave" and stars Natassia Malthe. And strangely, that's enough for me.

In Real People News: 

British man has hand chopped off in bar fight, and doesn't seem to notice, as he started to beat his assailant with the bloody stump. Later on as he was being taken to the hospital, paramedics overheard him rambling on about how it was "merely a flesh wound".

Funeral director takes cues from an awesome episode of "Tales From the Crypt", cuts off man's legs to make him fit into a smaller coffin. The only difference is instead of this one ending with the man being reanimated and taking his revenge, the guy just got arrested. Bummer... I always liked that ending.

Unemployed workers in Michigan turning to road kill for sustenance, joking about how Cannibalism is next. Consider yourselves warned, Michiganites.

On this day in history: 

1996: The Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski is arrested in his Lincoln, Montana cabin. After eluding capture for years on end, he was finally caught when his brother recognized the thoughts in the "manifesto" he demanded be printed in National Newspapers.
