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…
Mortal Kombat is one of those franchises that could really benefit from a reboot, but this most recent bit of news surrounding it makes it sound like they’re going the superhero movie route. (Bloody Disgusting)
Bloody Disgusting sat down with Seth Graham-Smith to discuss Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and more.
The official red band trailer for V/H/S was released via its Facebook page. I’m a sucker for anthology horror movies. This one looks particularly beast.
Shoreline just took on distribution rights for Torture Chamber. Hard not to get excited for a movie with a title like that… (Screen Daily)
Guillermo del Toro spoke about Pacific Rim, a movie that I really wish we didn’t have to wait an entire year for. (Comic Book Movie)
Genre legend Richard Lynch passed away last week. He was known for his roles in The Sword and the Sorcerer, and Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake of Halloween, among many others. (Bloody Disgusting)
After reviving the Planet of the Apes franchise last year, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have been enlisted to restore life to another popular Hollywood film series: Jurassic Park. These two apparently don’t mind treading on sacred ground as far as revered franchises go. Time will tell if they can breathe some much needed life into the long dead dinos. (Deadline)
Charlie Sheen is set to play the United States President in Machete Kills. Insert “winning,” or “tiger’s blood” joke here… Between Mel Gibson and now Sheen, it appears this sequel is going to be jam-packed with celebs who’ve gone batshit crazy in recent years. I’ll take it… winning. (Bloody Disgusting)
