Horror Headlines 7/23/08

McG updated his "Terminator Salvation" blog the other day, and continued his streak of saying all the right things in regard to this movie. Now if he's only change his douchey name, I might be able to have faith in this movie.

FearNET will be added to the OnDemand channels of 8.4 million Time Warner Cable subscribers. Supposedly Comcast customers already have the channel, even though I have Comcast and I haven't seen any signs of it. Just more Florida bias I guess. Not that I can blame them ;(

Wesley Strick, scribe of "Cape Fear" and "Arachnophobia" is going to be writing the Platinum Dunes remake of "A Nightmare on Elm St.". Ugh, I guess this is going through despite my best wishes. Also in the story, Robert Englund is not returning as Krueger. Mark my words, the "Friday the 13th" remake may end up working, but this won't. Feel free to hold me to that when this finally hits streets.

In Real People News: 

Attention fellas, "nagging" is no longer an excuse to kill your wives. I'm guessing the judge either never had a nagging wife, or was a woman. (I kid ladies, I kid)

Woman arrested for assault for trying to cram a peanut into the mouth of allergic neighbor. I don't really know why, but these stories always crack me up.

(cue Budweiser "Real Men of Genius" music) We salute you, Mr. .491 blood alcohol level guy. You ignore the laws of physics and drink enough alchohol to kill a Bear, all in the name of having a good time. Then you get behind the wheel, putting everyone in danger, for no good reason. And that's why we salute you, Mr. liquid breakfast guy. A true man of genius.

On this day in history: 

1982: Vic Morrow is killed filming a stunt sequence for Twilight Zone: The Movie near Valencia, California. Morrow and two child actors are chopped into bits by the main rotor when a helicopter positioned dangerously close to the talent suddenly crashes.
