Horror Headlines 7/28/08

Bloody Good Horror is on Twitter! You now have the ability to follow the excruciating minutiae of our daily lives, how did you get so lucky?

It's probably not a coincidence that my computer refused to play this "Return to Sleepaway Camp" Trailer, but it's okay because I was one of the few who got to see a "sneak peek" of the film at a Fango con about 5 years ago. Trust me, if your computer rebels too you aren't missing much.

I'll let this Arrow article explain all the stuff that's coming out for "The Punisher: Warzone" at Comic Con. I will say though that apparently the director Lexi Alexander has been relieved of her duty, so the studio can revamp the film to take advantage of recent comic book successes at the box office. That should make for a nicely awkward Comic Con panel, since it's already been announced that the director WON'T BE THERE. Ya, this should end well.

The "Watchmen" official site just got a huge update, including blogs, stills, videos and of course the trailer that's been around for a while. I'm still waiting for Mr. Postman to deliver me my copy of the original Graphic Novel so I can see what all the big fuss is about. Expect a report when he finally does.

Blurry footage from Comic Con of "Friday the 13th", the remake. It's actually pretty decent quality, so check that at the link.

New trailer for "My Name is Bruce". The film has been done for a while but the producers liked what they saw, so they decided to go back and beef up the action a bit. It's now set for an October release date, however I'm not sure in what capacity.

In Real People News: 

Midget cat burglar gets caught stealing candy after long run of successful robberies. Best story ever.

Pig with monkey's face born in China, just another in a long line of Ninja Turtle-esque mutations to happen in China in recent months. Expect our Olympic athletes to come back with extra eyes and limbs when they return from Bejiing this summer.

Fat family breaks slide at water park, hurts themselves, blames the park. Welcome to America. More specifically, welcome to Florida. Yup, this happened less than 15 minutes away from where I live. And you people think I'm making this stuff up.

On this day in history: 

1870: Andrew Carr is hanged at Richmond Prison, Dublin. He is dropped from too high, causing his head to separate from the rest of his body -- the greater portion of which twitches for several minutes.
