Billy Bob Thornton, Megan Fox, Bigfoot, & Other Horror News

I don’t really have a lot of time to make a post right now, so I’m going to post a little Horror News Roundup…yeehaw.

Ok, although it’s been in the horror news for a few days now, Fangoria just picked up the news that Billy Bob Thornton is rumoured to be the next Freddy Krueger.  Seems the rumour was started by the man himself, Robert Englund.  Englund was quoted as saying that Thornton would be “an excellent choice.”  You might remember Thornton in such fright flicks as Chopper Chicks In Zombie Town and he was a voiceless, redneck in a crowd of rednecks that later fell out of a truck in Hunter’s Blood (at least I THINK that was him).

In other news, Horror Movies.ca reports that the Megan Fox topless/nude scene we’ve all been watering at the mouth about has been cut from the upcoming Jennifer’s Body.  I would say that this pretty much takes the movie out of the running of flicks to watch, but the lesbian makeout scene she’s in is still in the movie, so now it’s a “maybe I’ll watch it, but maybe I’ll just wait for the UNRATED DVD to come out that has everything” movie.

Fox News, CNN, and others have been reporting that two ‘ol boys in Georgia have a Bigfoot body!  Normally I’d call bullshit on something like this, because even though I believe in the big, hairy guy, there are way too many hoaxes and whenever someone in the past has said they have a body, it’s been, well, bullshit.  However, they say they’ve sent DNA off to be tested and are going to hold a press conference for the world to see on Friday, August 15th.  They also said that they plan to hand the body over to science for further study.  This could be interesting, and if it proves out, HA! to all you assholes that said I was just a crazy fucker.

Looks like my favourite movie monster, the werewolf, may be coming back into vogue.  With the Wolfman Remake, another Underworld piece of shit, and the upcoming LOBO: “Lobo follows a man who receives a letter and some photos from his mother’s will, and decides to travel to the Amazon to find out his true roots. What he discovers is a clan of lycanthropes whom he eventually helps in their battle for survival.” (Dread Central) I’m worried that it’ll suck though.  Unfortunately, most horror movies, well, no, all werewolf movies made today suck total donkey dong.

Finally, a little eye candy.  Shock Till You Drop released the cover art for the release of Friday The 13th: The Series, which some of you may be interested in, even though the show was a complete piece of shit and didn’t have Jason in it.  Freddy’s Nightmares was much better.  Here ya go:
