Sitges film festival to bestow honorary awards on John Carpenter, Abel Ferrara and Charlie Kaufman. Can't go wrong with that list of names.
In addition to that, Sitges has commissioned some fairly well known directors to make fake trailers for viral promotion purposes, and this one for "Exorcist V" by [REC] director Jaume Balaguero is pretty freaking sweet.
Picture from the Scifi Channel's remake of "The Children of the Corn". I wish every remake were made for Scifi, so when it was released it would just be ignored and fade into the night like the shit-stain that it is. Okay that was kind of harsh, but you know what I mean.
The trailer for "Teen Zombies in Love" is actually a lot better than you would imagine from the title. That doesn't change the fact that Mark's head is exploding somewhere right now however.
This trailer for "Fear(s) of the Dark" is the scariest thing I've seen all week. The project was made by 6 of France's leading graphic designers, and features traditional black and white animation. Of course there's also the yellows, but I suspect that will just be urine running down the pant legs of the audience members. Seriously though, WATCH THE TRAILER.
So apparently, you can have sex with a car. And here I always thought that was just a cheeky joke. The picture at the link proves I was wrong.
If the Saudi government weren't so bat-shit crazy, I might be inclined to agree with them that Mickey Mouse is "one of Satan's Soldiers". Just wait until someone finally rips the copyrights to him from Walt Disney's cold dead hands, when we'll finally see what Lloyd Kaufman would do with Mickey. Now that would be unwholesome.
If you're in Poland and are a sex offender, they're going to take your balls. Sorry, that's just the price you pay for being a pedophile in a former Soviet bloc country.
1908: Thomas E. Selfridge becomes the world's first airplane fatality when the craft he's co-piloting with Orville Wright crashes near Fort Meyer, Virginia. An untested propeller ripped apart the plane's structure, causing it to nosedive from an altitude of 75 feet.
