Horror Headlines: Tuesday June 16th, 2009
The writer of "Sorority Row" and "Piranha 3D" updates his blog with news/thoughts on both films, both of which he feels are going to turn out really well.

Here are the specs for the new "Night of the Creeps" DVD, and damn, I have to say they're going all out with the special features.

Two cases of dead tadpoles raining from the sky have been reported in China recently. The funny thing is, that's probably the most normal thing that happened there today.
Man spontaneously revives a half an hour after being pronounced dead, then dies again two days later. Oooohhh, so close.
