Horror Headlines: Friday December 12th, 2008
Using Odette Yustman's booty for the newest "Unborn" poster seems a bit crude... but then again it made me more excited to see the film, so maybe they know me better than I know myself. This comes as a slew of clips and posters are popping up, and Yustman is already talking about sequel possibilities. I would like to at least make sure it doesn't suck before we start talking about sequels. Is that too much to ask?
Anne Hathaway chats with MTV about being "The White Queen" in Tim Burton's "Alice", and how starstruck she was over working with Johnny Depp. I'd pretty much kill a member of my family to watch something with Hathaway in it, so expect me to be front and center in March 2010 when this thing finally gets released.
Platinum Dunes, so pleased with their (presumed) success with their "Friday the 13th" remake, have greenlit a simliar reboot for "Nightmare on Elm St." It's been rumored for a while, but it looks like all systems are go, with scribe Wesley Strick working on the story as we speak. They hope to be shooting by late spring early summer '09. Also, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form confirm what was reported earlier this year, that Robert Englund will NOT be returning as Freddy Krueger, although they hope to have him in the film in some capacity.
Twitchfilm is is offering the film "Mindflesh" for free, streaming from their website for the next 3 days. It's about a guy who must close a gateway from the mental to the physical world before everyone he knows is killed by aliens. Not sure if it's any good or not, but sounds like a decent way to waste some time on a Friday if you ask me.
Actor accidentally slits own throat on stage with what was supposed to be a stage knife, but clearly wasn't. Meanwhile, the prop guy slowly slinked out the back door.
Japanese researchers pave the way for reading people's thoughts and dreams. Looks like clearing out your internet cache isn't going to be good enough to hide how much of a sickie you are in the future.
Man arrested for showing his junk to a 17 year old girl in a gas station in Okeechobee, Fl. I actually just drove through there two weeks ago... this story illustrates why I refuse to stop the car while doing so. Plus, it's really only interesting for the mugshot, which shows why it's important to take your sunglasses off every once in a while when you live down here.
