Horror Headlines 8/8/08

Don't forget, our Bloody Good T-shirt contest ends tonight at midnight! If you want to get your entries in, make sure to do it asap. So, let's get on with your Horror Headlines for Friday, 8/8/08.

Shawnee Smith will be in "Saw V", only she's not really sure how. I assume that means flashback footage.

BJ Novak of "The Office" is the next name to join Quentin Tarrantino's "Inglorious Bastards", next to Eli Roth. This move is following in Quentin's apparent plan to cast only Jewish actors in the roles. I read this as meaning that they'll be doing really offensive things, so he wanted to make sure that they were "kosher" so to speak. Also, Simon Pegg is reported to be in talks to play a British Commander.

Weenie Roast Massacre is today's award winner for Indie film I'm not interested in but gets mentioned because of it's awesome name. That is all.

Ed Sanchez ("Blair Witch Project") will be premiering his new film "Seventh Moon" at FANTASTIC FEST in Austin, Texas on Saturday September 20, at 10 pm. The film is his followup to "Altered", his small scale alien invasion flick from a few years back. If you're in the Austin area, make sure to be there! (PS - The image above is from "Seventh Moon's" poster, which kind of makes me want to pee my pants a little.)

In Real People News: 

I'm not totally sure, but it sounds like this Bishop was attacked by Trolls. Sorry, but that's all the sense I could make out of the article.

Apparently, there were cannibals in New Zealand until the mid 1800's. See, they thought the biggest humiliation they could perpetrate on their enemy was to cut them up and eat them, because eventually they would turn them to shit (which of course, is the ultimate insult). I think this is the way American rappers should settle beefs, it would certainly cut down on all this "East Coast vs West Coast" nonsense, now wouldn't it.

A stretch of highway in Oregon contains about 200-300 bottles of human urine, reported to have been tossed out of vehicles by truck drivers. Does that officially make Oregon part of the "Piss-Belt"? I'll start the petition now.

On this day in history: 

1973: Elmer Wayne Henley confesses to killing his partner and to the the sadistic murders of 27 teenage boys beginning in 1970. Following Henley's instructions, police dig up 27 bodies before calling off the search. This beat Juan Corona's record of 25 victims.
