Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 15th, 2009
So the story is floating around today that "Harper's Island" on CBS is officially canceled. Of course, since it was basically a summer filler miniseries, I'm not sure how people thought it had a chance of being "picked up" anyway. Besides, wasn't everyone dead at the end? Oooops... spoiler!
"Anchor Bay" has picked up "Grace" for a DVD release and limited theatrical run. The indie has been blazing up the festival circuit lately, and Anchor Bay seems like a logical place for it to find a home. It's an extremely limited release, only hitting a few theaters in NY and LA, but if you live in those areas you just might have the chance to see it on the big screen. The film is about "a mother who brings her dead fetus to term, and gives birth to a child with an appetite for blood".
After numerous stumbles along the way, the comic adaptation "HACK/SLASH" has a new director. Frederik Bond will be replacing Todd Lincoln as the helmer. The film will supposedly begin shooting by the year's end. "HACK/SLASH" deals with a sexy young woman who travels the country, taking on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.
"Zombieland" has a poster, and it's pretty sweet.

I've got a foolproof get-rich-quick scheme for you... all you have to do is have a cellphone and be able to act like a genie. I have no idea how to do that either, but I can't figure out everything for you. Take some initiative!
It seems like I shouldn't have to say this, but just to be safe... falling asleep in a recycling bin after a night of drinking is not a good idea. It will probably end up with you being dead.
I don't care if you are a "molecular gastronomist" - probably the most pretentious phrase I've ever had to type - you shouldn't be cooking with liquid nitrogen. It's a good way to lose both of your hands, like this dumbass.
1974: During a live broadcast of the Sarasota, Florida morning news program Suncoast Digest, newscaster Chris Chubbuck tells the audience: "In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first: an attempted suicide." Then she blows her brains out with a .38 revolver.
