Horror Headlines: Monday, November 24th, 2008

Adrien Brody talks about starring in Dario Argento's next film, "Giallo". I sort of want to be excited about this film, except I've seen Argento's last few. They were, how you say, "not good".

Concept art for sexy fem-aliens in James Cameron's "Avatar". I can already tell this film is going to make me uncomfortable, in the best way possible.

The guys behind the "Halloween" comic series over the last few years, are prepping an issue called "Halloween: Mark of the Thorn", which will be a continuation of the Tommy Doyle/Thorn storyline that started in H5 and came to an incredibly confusing ending in H6: Curse of Michael Myers. I'm not a big comic book guy, but I might consider picking this up, just to see a take on it 10 years later.

In Real People News: 

Man suicides on live Argentinian TV. This one had nothing to do with the economy, but if you notice, they're getting closer and closer to the US. Should we start a pool to see how long it takes to happen here?

Ever hear someone on the bus argue with the driver about how much feces is on a seat? Ya, me neither. But based on the story I'm guessing the driver didn't realize that no amount of shit on a public transportation seat is acceptable.

Apparently you can split someone's skull open with a pickax. I just always wondered if that scene in "Return of the Living Dead" was accurate. I guess the answer is yes... besides the whole yellow reanimated corpse thing.

On this day in history: 

William Duell, murderer, hanged at Tyburn in London. He is not killed immediately, though this is not noticed by the executioner. Deull later awakes on the dissection table.
