Horror Headlines 6/19/08

News has come out that we will be getting an official release date for Darren Lynn Bousman's Horror Musical "Repo: A Genetic Opera", sometime in the next few weeks. Also, the official trailer will be debuting at the next Comic Con. So, keep your eyes open!

I'm not totally sure why every horror site is reporting on this "Cleavagefield" movie, when it's basically just a straight to cable, soft core porn spoof. It could be because it's a spoof of what may be this year's biggest horror release, or it could be because it has the word "cleavage" in the title. Then again, it could just be because we all copy each other without really giving it a second thought. That said, I just posted a picture at the link so what does that say about me. I think I'm officially done with this one until it proves itself something more than late night cable fodder.

And since today is an incredibly slow news day, I'll post the new internet trailer for "X-files 2" that was posted online yesterday. It's incredibly similar to the first one, so there's not much new stuff for those of us who aren't hardcore fans out there.

In Real People News: 

Those racially sensitive buggers in South Africa have made another great advance for racial relations, by passing a law stating that all Chinese people in South Africa are now to be considered "Black". Wait, then what would Tiger Woods be?

Urban Legends be damned, it turns out that a snake really can climb up out of your toilet and (try) to bite you on the ass. Better watch that cornhole buddy!

Man is rightfully pissed that his alimony checks are going towards his wife's sex change. I don't even need to tell you where this is happening.

"Enraged" puffer fish attacks Cambodian boy's nutsack. I have no idea how you tell if a puffer fish is "enraged" or not, but I suppose him attacking your testicles is probably a good indicator.

On this day in history: 

1999: While taking a walk, horror author Stephen King is struck by a van piloted by a distracted Bryan Smith. King's extensive injuries (broken leg, broken hip, lacerated scalp and collapsed lung) remanded him to a hospital bed for three weeks. Smith would later die in his sleep on Stephen King's birthday.
