Horror Headlines: Wednesday December 19th, 2012
Vin Diesel and his alter ego "Riddick" are finally set to return to theaters and IMax on September 6, 2013. For those of you who are stupid and not just sold by the name Vin Diesel, this chapter in the Riddick series finds the blind guy left for dead on a sun soaked planet fighting for survival. I swear I'd see a movie if they just called it "Vin Diesel Doing Things".
If you're like me, and I pray you're not, your big New Years Eve plans revolve around getting drunk in front of the TV and screaming at Ryan Seacrest. It's sad. But now those plans may need to be put on hold because FearNet has announced they'll be doing a 12 hour marathon of the classic HBO series "Tales From the Crypt" hosted by the Cryptkeeper himself. This marks the first time in 15 years that John Kassir has reprised his role as the funny dead-one to pump out new material. It will also be the first time in 4 years that I plan on trying to stay upright till at least 8 pm.
IFC has finally dropped a release date for the much anticipated, by me at least, documentary "My Amityville Horror". The flick is a look inside the murders and spooky-time events that took place at the famous house some 30+ years ago. It also marks the first time that Daniel Lutz, who was 10 at the time, has gone on record about the events. Oh, the release date is March 1st for VOD. I probably should of mentioned that earlier.
It looks like the US remake of the Chilean horror flick "Hidden In the Woods" has officially been picked up for a 2013 US release. The film follows two girls and their fight to escape the horror they've faced all their life while living under the rule of an evil drug lord. No word yet on a specific release date or what sort of distribution the flick will get but stay tuned. If any info happens to be posted on the random days I decide to do the news you'll be the first to know. Or not.
A Golden Corral in Wyoming has been temporarily shut down after 167 people reported getting food poisoning after visiting the buffet. Is it wrong that I think I would still go there? I'm a sucker for an ice cream bar.
Cops had to come to a South Carolina home after there was a report of domestic abuse that was apparently caused by the husbands farts. Said farts were apparently so bad that his wife was gagging and couldn't take it anymore. This guy sounds like an American hero.
