Horror Headlines 7/24/08

First poster for Diablo Cody's "Jennifer's Body", starring Megan Fox, and I must say that I like it. You can't go wrong with Fox's mouth... ever. The film is about a cheerleader who gets possessed and starts seducing the school's boys in order to kill them.

M. Night Shyamalan has struck a deal to write and produce a handful of movies, but not direct. Genius, take away the one thing he does well. I can't see what could possibly go wrong here.

A gaggle of horror directors make COMEDY short films that will be available exclusively on XBOX Live. I can't make any more sense of this story than you can, but color me intrigued.

The teaser trailer didn't do much for me and I'm pretty pissed they did away with the metal suit, but these posters for "The Day The Earth Stood Still" are decent enough. The Keanu Reeves starring remake gets released December 12th, 2008.

Paramount and MTV will be remaking "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". No matter what they do, I'm sure the film won't be able to equal the confusion I had when watching this for the first time as a 13 year old. Hey, it had "horror" in the title and my mother didn't warn me, so I blame it on her. That said, I actually love the flick so this news is a bummer.

In Real People News: 

The fact that the pantyhose bandit is creeping people in Massachusetts out isn't a surprise, because it creeped me out just reading about it. What did this guy's mother do to him anyways?

London Fightclub uploading videos to Youtube. Wait a minute... isn't there some type of rule against that?

And for posterity's sake, all Christian Bale did was yell at his mom and sister after she asked him for 200 grand to raise her bastard children. Now that those facts have come out, she's lucky Batman didn't knock her the fuck out.

On this day in history: 

1999: Former Guns N' Roses guitarist "Slash" is arrested in West Hollywood for allegedly beating his girlfriend at the Le Parc Hotel five days prior.
