Horror Headlines: Monday July 22nd, 2013
Spanish director Victor Garcia has been confirmed to direct the big screen adaptation of the graphic novel "Crawl To Me". The story follows a family living in a remote town during a harsh winter and the events that make them question their family ties. The series was created by Life of Agony bassist Alan Robert who I hold partially responsible for me not getting laid in High School so I plan on being pretty rough on this one. Oh god no one loves me.
I've always enjoyed Cliver Barker's "Nightbreed" but to be honest watching a 2 hour and 45 minute version of the film sounds like hell on earth. Still, people seem to go nuts for the film and cry out in anger at the thought of the hour shorter version that was in theaters and released on home video. Well thanks to the folks at Scream Factory the extended version, being called "Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut" will see the light of day sometime next year. Really I don't understand why in this day and age any move would be over an hour and 15 minutes.
Remember how awesome the original "Robocop" was? All the killing, blood and swearing? It was everything that was good about movies in the 80's. Well the makers of the remake are pushing for a PG-13 rating so it's not going to be awesome. In fact it's not going to have anything that made the original awesome. In fact, remember the "Robocop" cartoon? Picture that, but with less cool stuff.
A lot of people like that "Dead Space" game. I played the demo for 5 minutes and got confused so I refused to ever give it another go. That's a good story huh? Anyway EA is planning on making a big screen adaptation of the game. No real word on when or if the film is really going to happen but at one point John Carpenter had eyed leading the charge on the film. Of course at one point I though a Poison tattoo would be really cool so who knows how this will go.
You ever see a giant fireworks store on the side of the highway and think, "holy hell it would be super awesome if that place caught on fire"? Well a fireworks store in Rochester Indiana caught on fire, and it was awesome. Don't you wish you had been driving by?
Ever hear sounds in your head? Like a weird scratching noise now and then? Well this woman in London did and it turned out it was actually maggots that had crawled into her ear while she was on vacation in Peru. Good luck sleeping tonight.
