Horror Headlines 5/15/08

There are lots of horror posters popping up at Cannes right now, including some for films that are still just theoretical at this point. Check out the future possibilities at the link.

Check the full synopsis for "The Wolfman" remake. It's just as long and fancy as you'd expect from a big budget Universal remake set during the 30's. The film stars Benicio Del Toro (as Wolfy), Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving and Emily Blunt. It will be released on April 3rd, 2009, a little less than a year from now.

So, Horror-Movies.ca is claiming that John Carpenter's "In the Mouth of Madness" is being remade. That's pretty insane, especially considering that it only came out in 1995. So now, if this is true, we're remaking films that are barely 10 years old. There is zero info at the source except for that, so I'm not taking this seriously until we hear something concrete.

Favorite of all of us who came of age in the 90's, the "Goosebumps" book series by R.L. Stine has been acquired by Columbia Pictures to adapt for the big screen. As the youngest in our crew, I'm sure Mark is squealing with glee right now.

Apparently MonstersHD, the only real hi-def horror channel, is in some kind of legal wrangle with the DishNetwork, and that has caused the channel to go black for the immediate future. Anyone out there have it? This story popped up yesterday, so flip it on and let us know if you're seeing it.

Young Jason Voorhees has been cast in the "Friday the 13th remake. Congratulations on looking like a mongoloid kid, I'm sure you've got a bright future ahead of you.

In Real People News: 

Oooooh, I'm not sure what's more disgusting in this story, the necrophilia, or the fact that she was a 92 year old woman. 92? Nasty.

If you're going to do some kinky shit and have your lover carve stuff into your chest with a knife, you better make sure she's not drunk first. You can fill in the blanks for yourself.

In the no-shit section today, a growing number of communities across the USA are moving to stop sexual predators from becoming ice cream truck drivers. Um, shouldn't that be the first question on the application? And so ends the all deviant sex edition of "Real News" with BGH.

On this day in history: 

1991: Alan Cooper stands trial in England for "committing a lewd, obscene, and disgusting act on the 12-foot dolphin called Freddie as they frolicked for 20 minutes off the harbor mouth at Amble, Northumberland." Cooper responds by claiming that his accuser was a sworn enemy and had trained dolphins for a movie to jump out of the water and tear off a woman's bikini bra. He is eventually acquitted of masturbating the cetacean.
