Horror Headlines: Monday October 27th, 2008

Rumor Mill: George Clooney is reportedly in talks to headline the remake of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". Producers will not say one way or the other, which actually lends some credence to this wacky story.

I had no idea about this 3D slasher called "Scar", starring the lovely Angela Bettis. Apparently it's a UK film, which gets a sneak peak on Halloween with a wide release on November 7th.

The official site for the "Friday the 13th" remake has gone live. Right now you can check out the trailer, a few stills and some downloadable goodies from the film.

This is kind of a cool little story, apparently the original short film used to pitch the original "Saw" to Lionsgate has surfaced online. As long as it's all "Saw" around here, you might as well check it out. Go ahead, I know you want to.

In Real People News: 

Child molesting clown alert! It must be Monday.

These guys could have used some tips from Dexter before trying to chop up the body of a drug dealer in their bathtub. It's all about the plastic wrap guys, all about the plastic wrap.

The government believes that Twitter and other similar applications that can be used with GPS enabled mobile phones, could be used by terrorists. Well, daddy Government, better take it away from us then. Just tell us it's un-American to use Twitter, that should take care of everything.

On this day in history: 

1999: Five gunmen storm the Armenian Parliament with machine guns, killing the prime minister, Vazgen Sarkisian, and seven other high officials on live television. The gunmen surrender the following day, after holding a large number of parliament members hostage. The motive behind the attack seems to have been protesting government corruption.
