Horror Headlines 7/1/08

Trailer for J.J. Abrams' "Fringe", which will debut this Fall on the FOX network. Looks pretty sweet to me, only a few more months to wait. Although, certain enterprising individuals have pointed out to me that it may be available through other means. I don't know what that means but I think you can figure it out ;)

Pics from Dario Argento's next film "Giallo", also two of the first posters for the flick. At this point, I'm officially going to stop saying "hopefully this is a return to form" for Argento. Based on "The Three Mothers", that ship may have sailed a long time ago.

Charlie Sheen is out of the Twisted Pictures film titled "Tortured", and Erika Christensen has become the first officially cast actor since that news broke. I always thought it was ironic that Sheen would star in a film called "Tortured", if only because of the infamous incident in 1991 where he actually called the FBI after viewing one of the "Guinea Pig" movies, mistaking it for a snuff film.

Declan O'Brien will be directing "Wrong Turn 3", and casting has officially begun. The series appears to be officially moving on without Joe Lynch, who brought the series back to life last year with his DTV sequel subtitled "Dead End".

In Real People News: 

So as it turns out, you really can pick off a bicyclist by throwing your car door open. And, coincidentally, it will only cost you a 110$ fine, as long as you're in Toronto. Good to know, good to know.

Grandfather slays family with an Axe. He warned them there would be consequences if they didn't let him watch Matlock. I guess they've learned their lesson.

I've read some disgusting stories for this site, but this one takes the cake. A Dublin man has been arrested for collecting little boy's urine with the intent to drink it. I'm not sure how he got caught, what with the black duffel bag and Saran Wrap and stuff. That's not sketchy at all.

On this day in history: 

1951: Mary Reeser spontaneously combusts in St. Petersburg, Florida, after taking a couple of sleeping pills and settling down with a lit cigarette.
