Horror Headlines: Tuesday June 29th, 2010
Hey there horror fans, it's your Editor-in-Chief Eric here, back on the newsdesk after what seems like forever. Let's see if I can shake the rust off...
Your latest "Fright Night" remake news, straight from McLovin's mouth. It will be rated R. Man, that was exciting, wasn't it?
Wes Craven seems to have been attending the Rob Zombie school of marketing your movie in the 21st century. Or at least I assume so, based on the flood of BTS video and pictures hitting the internet since the film started shooting... YESTERDAY. I don't think I can handle this every day leading up to the projected 2011 release date.
Neil Marshal talks about his next project after "Centurion". Something something something, "bodies exploding", "3D", "produced by Sam Raimi". That's the gist, anyway.
Timelife's fantastic slideshow of rare and unusual phobias.
So a Twilight fan (need I go on?) is suing the theater owner who had her arrested for taping part of her favorite vampire movie on a personal camcorder. Her defense? She was recording her sister's birthday party to save the memory. Oh, and she may or may not have recorded an additional 25 seconds to capture "her favorite actor tak(ing) his shirt off." Of the list of people she should be suing for causing her embarrassment, I'd probably put both Stephanie Meyer and "herself" on the list before the theater owner, but sadly, it's not my call.
I want a few sips of whatever Jenna Busch is on during this "Today Show" segment. Everyone else is just chalking it up to her being stupid since, as we all know, genetics are not her friend. I on the other hand am giving her the benefit of the doubt by calling her a drunk. Either way, not good.
A beautiful, hand-crafted, century old, unfortunately decorated quilt donated to local museum. Family not surprisingly unavailable for comment.
This story about a woman who passed out in her own vomit after huffing dust remover is still less depressing than the Twilight story.
1967 - Actress Jayne Mansfield is decapitated in a car crash, when her convertible collides with a parked tractor-trailer. To downplay the gruesome death, sources spread the falsehood that only her wig flew off in the accident.
