deadly friend

In honor of today's NBA Tipoff, allow me to present to you a clip of the villain from "The Goonies" getting killed by a basketball for no apparent reason from Wes Craven's "Deadly Friend". Watching this clip got me thinking; why aren't there more sports themed horror movies? Outside of Jason wearing a hockey mask, sports seemingly don't find their way into horror much. Why do you think that is? Can anyone think of other horror films were sports play a prominent role?

Also, go Cavs! Here's hoping for an 8th seed berth!

With talks of "Scream IV" and the release of the all new "Nightmare on Elm Street", Wes Craven is on a lot of people's minds. The latest rumors say that there is a remake in the works for Craven's "Deadly Friend". Though still in the preliminary stages, the word is that Warner Brothers will be shooting for 3D on the film as well.

Hollywood carries on the status quo as there is even more remake news about. The next horror oldie on deck? George Romero's semi-realistic vampire tale, "Martin". Lending a small bit of legitimacy to the rumor, the film is said to be produced by original Romero backer Richard P. Rubinstein.

Horror author John Skipp plans to step into the directors chair as he announces plans for his first film, a 3D horror comedy entitled "Rose".

Adam McKay spills the beans on an upcoming project titled "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters", produced by McKay and directed by "Dead Snow" helmer Tommy Wirkola. Set 15 years after the pairs escape from the wicked witch, McKay promises that the movie will be a Sam Raimi style shocker with steam punk elements. Most frightening of all; they've already offered roles to many members of the "Twilight" cast.
