LUCAS MANGUM’S HORROR CORNER: AUGUST 12 – 18, 2012

Lucas Mangum’s Horror Corner is a weekly roundup of recent horror-related posts from around the web; a handy guide to the notable horror happenings of the past week.  Enjoy…

So the trailer for Frog Legz wins the prize for the weirdest thing I’ve seen all week. French amphibian porn?

If you’re feeling jaded and horror films just don’t scare you anymore, try this new invention from Japanese researches on for size. It’s called the Chilly Chair and it’s sure to intensify your viewing experience. Check out the video to see how it works.

Get “Stung” by the trailer for this upcoming creature feature. The idea of giant bugs is terrifying, but man the films are always loaded with cheese. This one probably won’t be much different, but at the very least, it looks to be tons of fun. (Twitch)

I’m getting more and more excited Sam Raimi produced Possession. Find out why with this gag-inducing clip. (Bloody Disgusting)

Bloody Disgusting sat down to interview Todd Lincoln, director of The Apparition. Admittedly this film has been under my radar throughout its production, but after reading this interview, I’m pretty excited to check this one out. He seems like a really cool guy, committed to breaking some new ground and doing some cool shit.

Spiders 3D… I think my previous comment about giant bug movies applies here. Cheesy or not, though, it may still scare me. I hate spiders. (Bloody Disgusting)

More trouble for World War Z. According to THR, they only have 52 minutes worth of workable footage. This is a real shame. In the midst of this zombie craze, I feel like this is one of the most anticipated movies. I hope we see it soon.

Check out this Facebook fan exclusive teaser for Season 2 of American Horror Story. I’m counting the days down to this one folks.
