Horror Headlines 6/25/08

The new poster art for "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" is just as sweet as all of the others we've seen, and yet, there is still no release date. However, if you're going to be at Flashback Weekend in Chicago in a few days, it will be screening. We encourage anyone who wants to write a review to toss one our way.

"Land of Canaan" is an Indie thriller about a group of friend who break into a haunted hotel. The film stars Tara Reid, Robert Englund and Dee Wallace Stone. In related news, my script about the horrors of Reid's awful boob job is still looking for funding. Anyone interested?

The Official site for "Prank" is now live. You may recall that "Prank" is a horror anthology with each part being directed by (respectively) Danielle Harris, Ellie Cornell and Heather Langenkamp. You can check out teaser trailers for each story as well as some other stuff at the link.

Richard Kelly's "The Box" is being rumored for a release date of 9/11/09, a full 5 months after it's original release date. No reason as to why, but the first official screening takes place tomorrow, so we'll find out soon enough. The film centers on a couple who are given a box with a button, and are told that if they press it they will receive 1 million dollars, but someone they don't know will die. I still don't know what the problem is here. It sounds like a good way to thin out the dregs of society to me.

Wanna party like it's 1994? Well now you can, by downloading an X-Files ring tone from the official site for the sequel. They updated this weekend with that, plus a bunch of other new material that can all be found at the link.

In Real People News: 

18 year old kid loses his arm to an Alligator bite in the Orlando, Florida area. Serves him right for breaking the one rule about living in this state, DON'T SWIM IN THE EVERGLADES. They call it "Alligator Alley" for a reason... dumbass.

You have to hand it to the Dutch. Not only are they preparing for the end of the world in 2012, but they're pretty optimistic about it. Now THOSE are my kind of people.

I'm not sure what genius came up with the idea of powering ipods with breast physics, but I want to shake his hand. Since this presumably works on bouncing, I guess the members of our "itty bitty titty committee" are going to be left out in the cold. Bummer.

On this day in history: 

1876: General Custer ambushed at Little Big Horn after attempting to slaughter fleeing Indians. He's found naked except for one boot, one sock, and an arrow through his penis. Not to worry though, he would get his revenge in 1982 thanks to Atari.
