Horror Headlines: Friday October 22nd, 2010
Danish filmmaker Ole Bornedal is confirmed to be directing the Sam Raimi produced film "Dibbuk Box". The movie is apparently based on real life events that happened to a family who came into possession of a haunted box. I'm not sure how big the box was but one possible solution could have been to just throw it out. I'm just tossing out ideas here though.
Wait there's a remake of "The Crow" in the works? Why didn't anyone tell me about this? Time to bust out my skin tight leather pants! I hope they still fit, it's been over 15 years. Oh and Stephen Norrington, the director who was attached to it said he's left the project. But still, "The Crow" remake!
Now I'm going to address the fine people behind "The Frankenstein Syndrome" When you cast Tiffany Shepis in your movie I have some expectations of what I'm going to see. I'm not going to say what those things are but you take a look at these new stills from the film and try to guess. Here's a hint, it isn't a creepy mask covering up her face... or a creepy shirt.
Don Coscarelli, the guy who brought us "Phantasm" and "Bubba Ho-Tep", has officially been tapped to direct David Wong's "John Dies at the End". The cast right now also includes Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, Angus Scrimm, Chase Williamson, and Rob Mayes. I assume one of them will play someone named "John" who will most likely die at the end of the movie.
If this doesn't warm your heart I don't know what will. A 5 year old boy in Syria has become engaged to a 3 year old girl. I have no idea how or why something like that could be legal in any country, but that doesn't make it any less adorable.
