Horror Headlines: Friday October 24th, 2008

If you have the stomach for that kind of thing (in more ways than one), "Saw V" opens in theaters everywhere today. The BGH Podcast will be subjecting themselves to it for review this weekend. Never let it be said that we won't take one for the team.

Finally, a decent poster for "My Name is Bruce". The film, directed by Bruce Campbell, is readying itself for a limited release on October 30th.

I hesitate to do this after the fiasco from the other day, but here's the official Teaser Trailer for "Friday the 13th". I'm actually digging Mrs. Voorhees voiceover in this one, despite the fact that rumors have claimed she will be cut from the film.

Crispin Glover has signed on to Tim Burton's "Alice", his big budget reimagining of Alive in Wonderland. That's about as genius as casting gets folks.

Trailer for "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans". The only thing keeping me interested at this point is the substitution of Rhona Mitra for Kate Beckinsale, so that doesn't bode well for a movie about vampires fighting werewolves.

And here it is folks, the first trailer for "My Bloody Valentine 3D"! My interview with director Patrick Lussier will appear in the next issue of Horror Hound Magazine. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the awesomeness below. This is going TO ROCK. (and as Lussier told us a month or so ago, don't be surprised if you see this in front of prints of "Saw V" this weekend)

In Real People News: 

Since it's Friday, and I did kind of mess a few of you up yesterday with that giant spider story, here's a feel-good story about the world's oldest living organ. Awww... isn't that special.

Next time your wife/girlfriend/significant other complains about your gas, tell them you're just watching your blood pressure... and thank me later.

As mentioned by Drew in his latest blog, Dr. Pepper has vowed to keep their promise to give everyone in America a free soda if Guns 'n Roses' long awaited album "Chinese Democracy" is released in 2008. A recent announcement from the band claimed it will be released next month, leaving even the soft drink maker admittedly a little surprised.

Some Sherpas in Nepal claim to have photographed Yeti footrprints. Where's Leonard Nimoy and his creepy music when you need him?

On this day in history: 

2002: The Washington Sniper attacks come to an end when John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo are arrested. The pair chose victims at random, then shot at them with a sniper rifle. In three weeks, they killed ten people and critically injured three others before a suspicious trucker noticed the pair napping at a rest stop.
