Horror Headlines 7/22/08

After 5 years and countless shenanigans (including some people that apparently never got paid for their work), the trainwreck waiting to happen known as "Return to Sleepaway Camp" has been acquired by Magnolia Picture for an October DVD release. This has brought up many shenanigan worthy memories from the old site, which I'll most likely be recounting in a blog post this week. Stay tuned for that.

Ryuhei Kitamura, director of "Midnight Meat Train", is planning to remake his early film "Versus". I had a chance to see "Versus" a few years back, and I have to say it's pretty sweet. It's essentially the story of Japanese Yakuza who run into a forest full of zomie/ninjas. So, I guess a remake could at least be interesting.

The last 5 seconds of "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" trailer sports the words "This Spring". Does that mean it finally has a release date? At this point, it's only conjecture so we'll have to wait and see.

ZMD is a comic about weaponized zombies let loose to run amok on the middle east, and what happens when the US Army loses control of one of the beasts. Also, it's just been picked up for adaptation and there should be a booth at comic con so, keep a look out for that.

In Real People News: 

Albinos are being killed in Tanzania, because people think they're into witchcraft. I would have thought it was because they're creepy as hell, but I guess I'm just a simple guy like that.

Attention douchebags with bluetooth headsets who live in the UK... you're being watched, and it's not by Bruce Wayne, it's by the Federal Government. Shocker.

Man decides not to kill himself by jumping off building, then slips and falls. I would comment on how ironic that is, but I'm not actually sure if that qualifies as irony. Where's Jon when you need him?

On this day in history: 

1587: Roanoke, the colony founded by Sir Walter Raleigh, is found to be missing. It is never discovered what happened to the settlers.
