Horror Headlines: Thursday December 11th, 2008

New pic from Terminator 4, and an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger about how he saw some footage from it recently and was confused. You could take that as a bad sign, but he's probably confused by every day things so maybe it isn't such a big deal.

To coincide with debut of "The Day The Earth Stood Still" this Friday, December 12th, FOX is beaming the movie into space. There's something oddly tragic, yet fitting, that the first thing an alien race might see from us could be a Keanu Reeves film. Kind of just sums up society right? And let's put on our tin foil hats for a second and think this through. Shouldn't we be sending peaceful messages into space? What if some war-mongering race sees this and thinks it's real? Okay... foil hats off now.

The director of "Urban Legend" and "Valentine" is making his own nature run amok film with "Flies", about genetically mutated flies in Australia (his home country). I'm not sure it can top the genius of the 90's film "Mosquito"... but then again, few movies can.

More "My Bloody Valentine 3D" pics, this time with the villain in a few shots. He looks pretty much exactly as I had pictured him. After all, there's only so many things you can do with "coal miner in gas mask".

In Real People News: 

I would imagine accidentally getting to see the autopsy of a 14 year old girl you go to school with, WHILE ON A FIELD TRIP, might be a damaging experience. Just an observation.

I thought we were over this whole police officers shoving thing up people's asses thing. I mean really, in what kind of a civilized nation does this happen?

Methinks that carrying three charred monkeys in your suitcase on an international flight might be some kind of a health hazard. I guess I'm just nutty like that.

On this day in history: 

1960: In Palm Beach, Florida, retired postmaster Richard Pavlick chooses at the last moment not to ram John F. Kennedy's car and detonate his seven sticks of dynamite. Pavlick later explains that it was out of concern for Jackie: "I did not wish to harm her or the children... I decided to get him at the church or someplace later.
