Horror Headlines 9/16/08

So, rumor has it that when Paramount finally releases a worthy "Friday the 13th" box set in February to coincide with the release of the remake, it will contain the infamous "unrated" edition of the first film that has never been released in the states. To my knowledge the only place it exists are on a Japanese laserdisc and an older UK release, and it contains some extra gore as well as alternate takes of certain scenes. Should be interesting to see how these DVD's turn out, since the last set was such a disappointment. And while I'm at it, is it too much to ask for original box art? Seriously?

The dude who directed the original Thai film "Shutter", is on to his next film and it's about watching a horror movie, then going home and experiencing dejavu because you're reliving scenes from the film you just watched. There's a bit more at the link but, I couldn't decide if this was the best or stupidest idea ever so, I stopped reading halfway through.

Extended clip from "The Day The Earth Stood Still", starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly. Part of me thinks this film has a lot of potential as a remake, and part of me thinks it's going to blow donkey balls. What do you guys think?

Loads of stills from "Repo: A Genetic Opera", which gets a limited release on November 7th. Also, word that as of September 30th, the soundtrack will be available for digital purchase. And no, it's not "FREE" you greedy bastards. I just hope and pray it features a song from the band Bill Moseley has with Buckethead called "Cornbugs". I in no way, shape, or form made that up. Myspace at the link.

Audrina Partride from the MTV show "The Hills" has joined the cast of "The House on Sorority Row" remake. What, you didn't think I'd let you'd get away without making you homicidal this morning, did you?

In Real People News: 

Somebody needs to get Jake Roberts some help, like NOW. I hesitated to post this, but then I thought, what kind of a parasitic website owner would I be if I didn't?

A Vegetarian diet can shrink your brain, further proving that Hippies don't know what the hell they're talking about.

Russian Satanists have more back hair than any other kind of Satanists. It's true, look it up.

On this day in history: 

1999: Disney Infoseek executive Patrick Naughton travels to the Santa Monica pier to meet a 13-year-old girl he was attempting to seduce via an Internet chatroom called "dad&daughtersex." The girl was actually an undercover cop. Disney fires Naughton almost immediately after the news breaks; the executive later pleads guilty to the charge of crossing state lines to have sex with a minor.
