Horror Headlines: Friday June 5th, 2009

"Creep" director Christopher Smith taps Sean Bean for his next film, "Black Death". The film is set in an apocalyptic medieval world facing the bubonic plague, which should prove interesting. It could also turn out just like "Doomsday," which wouldn't be that bad either.

Plot details for the two, yes two, new "Ju-On" sequels, due out on June 27th, have surfaced. Judging from the promotional pictures, the ghost girl still needs a hair cut.

Corey Haim, and a host of "Friday the 13th" alums including Ari Lehman, Warrington Gillette and others have signed on for a new indie slasher called "The Girl". Director Travis Bowen claims that the movie is just like "Friday the 13th," except with a Playboy model (Lisa Neeld) as the killer instead of a hulking dude in a mask. Judging by the cast, it kind of seems like a bootleg Horrorhound Weekend reunion to me.

A Tampa Bay homeless man is arrested for masturbating on the roof of a night club at 11:30 in the morning, in Florida. I hope he used sunscreen!

In a moment akin to teenage fantasies the world over, a resident nurse in Cincinnati visits a patient in his room, gropes the man through his hospital gown, kisses him and leaves. Why is this news? The nurse happened to be a cross dresser.

The Raelien Cult announces plans to open an alien theme park in Las Vegas. The park will include life size UFO models, a theater for cult leader Rael to give lectures, and a museum to show proof of cult gatherings over the last 35 years. Nanu Nanu.
