Horror Headlines: Tuesday November 6th, 2012

Hey gang, Casey here! Everybody in the office drew straws for "I'm going to avoid the internet on election day" day, and I drew the short one! So hang on tight, we're going to try and knock this out before the mudslinging starts. Oh, who am I kidding, let's sling some mud at those guys, 'tis the season! I'm going to use this public forum to single out everybody on the BGH staff.

Since we're on the subject of remakes and trailers, here's another one for you! This time around, we have Donal Logue, Malcolm McDowell and Jamie Kennedy starring in this Silent Night remake. Yeah... it's not quite as exciting as the previous news.

Though he denies membership vehemently, BGH Business Manager Schnaars was spotted wearing his exclusive Balls and Shaft Society ruby encrusted monocle while training for the New York City Marathon.

A new trailer for Franck Khalfoun's reboot of William Lustig's "Maniac", which was written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur and stars Elijah Wood. This news begs the question; how the hell did we not know there was a reboot of "Maniac" starring Elija Woods in the works?

Once a staunch opponent to large screen televisions in every home, site editor Eric has been rumored to have accepted a gift of a large screen HD television, softening his stance.

I know that it's hard to believe that they've actually gotten this far, but there is actual footage of Brad Pitt's "World War Z"! Not only that, they're going to debut the full trailer on this Thursday's "Entertainment Tonight". Because you know...all zombie movie fans watch Entertainment Tonight.

Fed up with their freshly shorn lies, Web Designer Mark once tried to launch his own political party in college, the little known 'Beard Party'. The organization was short lived however due to the members penchant for wearing flannel and stocking caps and the general public confusing them for longshoremen.

Could Joe Dante and Robert Englund teaming up for a film be a formula for greatness? I doubt it, but it sound like their new project "Air Disturbance" could have some potential. I'm not so sure that Englund could pull off the 'swearing on a plane' genre as well as Sam Jackson though.

In a fit of drunken rage at the current state of the political machine, news writer Joe declared that he would be announcing his candidacy for President in 2012. Upon sobering the next morning, he reminded us that he meant that he was running for President of Untappd.

In Real People News: 

An Abilene, TX man had a foolproof plan for buying a $228 TV for $2, but it didn't quite pan out for him. I can't imagine why.
