Horror Headlines: Thursday June 25th, 2009

Zac Efron has signed on to do a thriller for Mandate Pictuers, from the writer who brought you "Hairspray". You know what, that's just too easy.

The "Sorority Row" remake gets moved up, from October 2nd to September 11th.

The trailer for Richard Kelly's "The Box" has finally landed. This actually looks really solid considering it's been pushed back so many times. But opening opposite "Saw"? Really? Sort of sounds like giving it an excuse to fail to me.

In Real People News: 

Bumfight erupts over a conversation on quantum physics. Why homeless men were debating the splitting of atoms... your guess is as good as mine. What I do know is the weapon of choice was a skateboard, which makes the story even wackier.

Even if you believe this odd piece of Chinese folklore stating that drinking soup made from a man's brain would cure mental illness, do you really think the ideal brain would be that of a drunk 75 year old? Let's set our sights a little higher here, people.

On this day in history: 

1876: Custer's last stand. After being tricked into thinking his Indian adversaries were retreating during the Battle of Little Bighorn, Custer and his 210 men were ambushed, with all losing their lives. He was found two days later almost entirely naked, with an arrow through his penis.
