Horror Headlines: September 18th, 2012
Kick me in the balls I'm excited about this one. John Carpenter's classic film "Halloween" will once again be thrust into theaters on October 25th. Just to make things even better the super fun documentary "You Can't Kill The Bogeyman: 35 Years Of Halloween" will be shown right after the movie. Just so we're clear I don't really want anyone to kick me in the balls. It's just a saying. Not one people use really, but it's still a saying.
Remember "Manimal"? If you don't all you need to know is that it was a 80's TV series about a guy who can change into different animals. Sounds intense right? Well it looks like the show's creator, Glen A. Larson, has officially signed on to produce the upcoming big screen relaunch of the show in film form. That sentence was confusing wasn't it. No word on release date or casting for this yet but Sony plans to make this a live action/CG romp. There better be a live panther that's all I'm saying.
If there's one I think I love it's a good old fashioned creepy van. Who doesn't, honestly? Well this coming Holiday season a new film titled "Creep Van" will make all my dreams come true. Being called a cross between "Christine" and "Saw" the film revolves around a killer who uses a van equipped with it's very own torture chamber to pick people off. I assume the relationship to "Christine" is based solely on the fact that it's an automobile but I'll go with it. I'm no one to judge.
Philip Seymour Hoffman, my favorite of all the Seymour Hoffman's, is lining up a new ghost story for his next directing project. Titled "Ezekiel Moss", the film focuses on widow and her son who come in contact with a man who may be able to contact the dead. No word on casting yet but I have always thought I would make a terrific Ezekiel. I have the thighs for it.
A Florida man destroyed his neighbor's trailer because he thought, and I quote, "it looked like he was going to get froggy". I have no idea what that means or how it even happens but I 100% agree it's a reasonable excuse to destroy a man's home.
A New Hampshire woman was arrested 4 times in 26 hours. Twice for playing Ac/DC to loudly, once for playing Guns n Roses too loud and the last time for throwing a frying pan at her boyfriend's head. I think I'm in love.
