Horror Headlines: Tuesday October 2nd, 2012
I have no idea what to make of Nicolas Cage anymore. I do nothing but joke about him but every movie he comes out with I want to see. Take "I am Wrath" for instance, which has just landed "The Exorcist" director William Friedkin. The plot is pretty played out, a guy takes the law into his own hand after his wife is murdered, but Cage will be all kinds of nuts in it and make weird faces and I will love it. Even if it's awful. It's going to be awful.
"Sleeping With the Enemy" director Joseph Ruben has officially signed on to remake the 1945 Orson Welles classic "The Stranger". For those of you not familiar with the original the film focuses on a reformed serial killer who is reunited with his old partner who tries to convince him to start killing again. I don't know what it is but anytime I'm reminded of Julia Roberts I want to murder too. I think it's her face.
Elijah Wood has always been a creepy little SOB but I had no idea he was such a horror nut. But according to the internet, which never lies, the snaggled toothed one has partnered up to form The Woodshed, a new production company aimed at bringing horror to the masses. I don't really know how horror isn't already being brought to the masses but the company has already lined up a gaggle of flicks that it plans on dropping in the near future. It's weird that Kirsten Dunst and him never got together now that I think about it.
AJ Bowen and Barbara Crampton have both been confirmed for the upcoming Halloween comedy "Grow Up". Solid chance you can guess the premise of this one but just so we're all on the same page it focuses on a young man who refuses to let the joys of his youth end. Sounds like every person that reads or writes for this site. I think we've got a winner.
You're a gym teacher in NYC and a 6 year old just beat you up. It's got to be nothing but uphill from here.
I've seen a bunch of movies where people try to eat all the drugs they have before the cops bust them but I had no idea people in real life were stupid enough to try it. Congrats guy in Scranton PA who tried to eat a entire pot plant, you're now on the same level as those three burn outs from "Super Troopers".
