Horror Headlines: Friday May 8th, 2009
New in theaters today, J.J. Abrams "Star Trek". Meanwhile, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is in its second week. Now, on with today's horror news!
The UK version of "Gorezone" has the first official still from the "Children of the Corn" remake that lands on the Scifi channel this summer. He's got corn growing out of his eyes, people!
Catch 4 minutes from "Terminator: Salvation", before it hits theaters May 21st.
The third TV spot for "Drag Me To Hell" has officially landed. I'm still not convinced, but most of our readers seem to be, so I guess we'll find out on May 29th.
Darren Lynn Bousman to direct "Mother's Day" remake/trilogy. We've known he was doing the remake for a little while now, but in this press release comes the head-scratching information that they're shooting to make an entire trilogy out of the remake of the Charlie Kaufman directed TROMA classic. Want to know something even weirder? The film is being triple-produced by Twisted Pictures, The Genre Company, and get this, Brett Ratner's Rat Entertainment. Oh boy, I don't even know where to start with this story.
Keanu Reeves to star in "Jekyl", a modern day telling of "Jekyl and Hyde" for Universal. This is a stretch for him, considering it's out of his "robot/wooden alien" comfort zone. Can he still pull human off? Na, I didn't think so either.
I would say this is how you smuggle exotic birds onto a plane, but this guy got caught so not so much. Instead it's just a way to look like a dumbass on the internet, and be really mean on some birds. So, congrats on both counts, guy.
Time to feel girly... this 17 year old British girl drinks a litre of vodka and eight beers a day, meaning she could kick your ass in a drinking contest any time you're feeling brave. Of course, she's not exactly having fun while doing it, so what's really going on is I just made an unfunny joke about an even unfunnier story. Go me.
Afghanistan's ONLY pig was taken off display at the zoo so as to not panic visitors concerned about the Swine Flu. I have no idea why, but the thought of Afghanistan only having ONE pig made me laugh out loud this morning. You're welcome.
1902: Mt. Peleé erupts on the West Indies island of Martinique. A wall of superheated ash and rock cascades down the slopes, slamming directly into the community of Saint Pierre. The shockwave and intense heat even manage to destroy twenty ships in the harbor. Only two of the town's 28,000 residents survive the cataclysm.
