Horror Headlines 6/20/08

If you're a horror filmmaker, don't forget that today is the final day to enter the "After Dark" film fest that takes place in Toronto every year. Of course, if you've ever done these types of things before you know that there are so many hoops to jump through, you probably don't have enough time. So really, I'm just here to mock you.

"Blood Car" is (you guessed it) a horror comedy about a car that runs on human blood. With gas at well over 4 dollars a gallon, I wouldn't mind this at all. Lord knows there's plenty dead weight around me that would work pretty good as fuel.

In Real People News: 

Mother tortures son, partially skins him and feeds his flesh to other people. Oh crap, I forgot to tell you to put your bagel down before you read that. Sorry :)

Stillborn baby starts breathing 5 hours after being declared dead, on the way to the cemetery. Wow, two incredibly disgusting stories in a row. I'm on fire today.

Here's a good one. Want some possible proof of life beyond our planet? A researcher in the UK has determined that an unusual crop circle that showed up recently is actually a fractal representation of the first 10 digits of Pi. Either this guy is a genius, or he's just banking on the fact that I'm retarded when it comes to math. Either way, it's pretty intriguing.

On this day in history: 

2010: Houston mommy Andrea Yates drowns her five children, one after another, in the bathtub then notifies the authorities. Yates is later sentenced to life in prison which is overturned. She was on medication for post-partum depression and had recently attempted suicide.
