Last Week in Horror, July 27th to August 3rd

Posted by Peter Hall - August 3rd 2008 @ 10:27 am

Last Week in Horror was some kind of post-ComicCon orgy of news.  Either this was all left over from the con and took a week to rise to the top or PR folk knew their news wasn’t big enough to rock a convention and thus waited a week.  Whatever the case, I feel like this post took longer to gather than most.

Xingu Films announced AMERICAN REAPER, which is a sci-fi film whose concept I love.  John Carpenter got a non-horror directing gig, which is the best thing for him these days, if you ask me.  Which you did.  Some GHOSTBUSTERS rumors.  Two people who yet to impress me may muck up my beloved Alexandre Aja remake of PIRANHA.  Lionsgate is fielding all kinds of heat in the fallout of their guided MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN release debacle.

But most importantly.  THE THING!  Remade!  As a music video!

    actually, Schifrin’s comic is called SPOOKS. and it’s quite good.

    i STILL think the PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS remake is a monumentally stupid idea. that movie was fucking perfect.

    i’m with you on PIRANHA. i was pretty psyched about that one… until now.

    and speaking of remakes starring action figures. did you ever see that clip of the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK remake? it featured action figures, a MIDI or straight synth (can’t remember which) rendition of the score, and was supposedly part of a feature-lenght SHOT-BY-FUCKING-SHOT remake. yeah. with action figures.

    i’ll see if i can find a link and post it here.
