Horror Headlines: Wednesday, October 5th 2008

Oh Jesus... now Romero's making a zombie-western, set on an island. I officially have no interest in this film, who's coming with me?

The director of the "Donnie Darko" sequel is understandably sensitive about how fans are going to react to the film. At the link, some interesting thoughts about following up the unlikely cult classic.

First pictures from the Stephen King adaptation "Dolan's Cadillac"... or as I like to call it, "Christian Slater looking like a pimp".

So see if you can follow me on this one. The director of "Bend it Like Beckham", Gurinder Chadha, is making a horror comedy titled "It's a Wonderful Afterlife". The play on the classic Jimmy Stewart film follows a "British-Asian mother whose obsession to marry off her daughter comically leads to serial murder." That is officially the most multi-culti thing we have ever reported on here.

John Carpenter's "RIOT", starring Nicholas Cage. More at the link... sounds pretty interesting.

In Real People News: 

Japanese scientists think they might be able to clone a frozen woolly mammoth. In other news, if they do this I'm never buying a car again. It's all mammoth for me baby!

It's official, we have our first "Dexter" copy cat!... it sounds like there was a little bit of Jason thrown in there too. Hey, I guess if you're going to kill someone you might as well learn from the best.

Meth in the trick or treat bag? No thanks. That's almost as bad as Casey and his religious pamphlets.

On this day in history: 

1605: Parliament is scheduled for detonation in the notorious Gunpowder Plot, in which Catholic conspirators attempted to roll back protestantism in England. Thirty-six barrels of black powder were uncovered in the cellar, and fuses were found in Guy Fawkes' pocket. In consequence, Fawkes was beheaded. Britains now celebrate his death with warm beer and fireworks.
