Horror Headlines: Monday December 2nd, 2013
I stopped writing the news about a month ago when I read that Syfy was working on a series based on 1995's "12 Monkeys". Now I come back and what's the first thing I read? Kirk Acevedo, who has played the tough kid from the block in every movie or TV show that has had a tough kid from the block in the past 5 years, has been added to the cast. It's almost like they're daring me to stop writing again. It's almost like they know I'm just really lazy and the show had nothing to do with me not writing the news. Get out of my head Hollywood people.
I love when studios decide to drop release dates for movies even when they're a crap load of time away from now. Take Universal's "The Mummy" reboot for instance, they recently announced that it would be hitting theaters on April 22, 2016. That's over two years away. Who knows what we'll be doing in two years. Maybe movies won't even be shown on screens anymore. Maybe they'll just be beamed into our brains like the way people had sex in "Demolition Man". All I'm saying here is I don't want to sign up for seeing this movie now and then find myself being dry humped by Sylvester Stallone in my sleep.
With more and more horror related documentaries hitting the shelves it was only a matter of time before the "Hellraiser" franchise got its own. It's going to be called "Leviathan" and it'll focus on the making of the first two films in the series. No word on if it'll have anything to do with the 1989 film "Leviathan," but my guess is since that had absolutely nothing to do with "Hellraiser" it most likely won't. I'm just speculating here, though.
I know I watched the horror anthology series "Monsters" every week but to be 100% honest I could not tell you the plot of one episode. To be fair though the show was only on from 1988 to 1991 and around that time I was really starting to discover my body so my best guess is I wasn't really paying attention anyway. Well, good news for me because the show is finally getting a release on DVD this coming February 25th thanks to the folks at Entertainment One. Now with the power of play and pause I can enjoy the show and myself without missing a second. Are you throwing up yet? I hope so.
With all the long lines and madness at Walmart right now it's understandable that people would need a break. What isn't understandable though is this guy in Oklahoma who decided to head into the women's room and rub one out. It also isn't understable that this happened at 8:30 in the morning. It is understandable that he got arrested though. That's just science.
And only because this is the happiest mugshot I've ever seen here's a woman in Florida who apparently stalked a duck before running it over with her car. Yes, a duck.
