Welcome to Horror Bites, tasty little slivers of the week’s best horror news. Right now it’s a busy time for sequels in the horror universe. The announcement of Gary "Crazy Face" Busey joining the cast of "Piranha 3DD” guarantees that things will get nuttier for the schlocky sequel. Score one: us!
The boys at “South Park” made an unusual sequel to the “Human Centipede” for the season premiere by splicing two bizarrely ingenious things together. You’ll never look at your mobile device in the same way again.
Find out what other sequels await you, and other horror tidbits, after the jump.
"South Park" Unleashes The HUMANCENTiPAD!
Did you catch the season premiere of the new “South Park”? The episode joined Apple technology and Tom Six’s awesomely grotesque film from last year, “The Human Centipede.” Check out the “HUMANCENTiPAD” trailer for yourself, or watch the full episode online.
Gary Busey Set to Act Crazy and Battle Piranha
Last summer’s 3D horror-comedy extravaganza paired a porn star, Ving Rhames, and a 1980’s starlet together for a fiendish and fishy bloodbath, otherwise known as “Piranha 3D.” The ridiculously titled sequel, “Piranha 3DD,” is being written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan of “Saw” fame, and production is currently underway in North Carolina. We know that Danielle Panabaker (“The Crazies”), Matt Bush (“Adventureland”), and Chris Zylka (“The Amazing Spiderman”) are already on board, but as we reported yesterday, a new name has been added to the list. Gary Busey (“Predator 2”) – who is famous for some seriously oddball performances and his rubbery face – should definitely add to the sequel’s insanity. Check out “Piranha 3DD” on November 23.
Cool Rob Zombie Fan Art
Brazilian artist, Camila Torrano, created a few “House of 1000 Corpses” movie posters that Rob Zombie highlighted on his blog earlier this week. The film about a couple who get lost on the road and abducted by a family of psychotics is available on Blu-ray.
Check out the Set of "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D"
“Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” began filming last month in Toronto and will be wrapping things up in about a week. Canadian fans have been haunting the production, shooting video of the spooky set and creepy props. The sequel to the 2006 film picks up with Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens), who is the main character in the third videogame of the popular series. On the eve of her 18th birthday, Heather heads to Silent Hill to investigate the disappearance of her father after being plagued by terrifying nightmares.
"Hobo With a Shotgun" Gets a Blu-ray/DVD Release Date
“Hobo With a Shotgun” will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 5. Extras will include commentary with director Jason Eisener and Rutger Hauer (the hobo himself), an alternate ending, tons of featurettes, and more. The grindhouse throwback stars a pissed-off, homeless vigilante who tries to bring justice to the streets … with a shotgun.
Watch Angry Trolls Wreak Havoc on Norway
If you want to see a bunch of giant, nasty trolls chase Norwegian film students around (and who doesn’t?), then check out the new “Troll Hunter” trailer. The film combines comedy, government conspiracy, and Norwegian folklore in a story that follows a group of students trying to capture real-life trolls on camera. “Troll Hunter” will be available on VOD May 6th and in select theatres on June 10th.
"Dylan Dog" Director and Cast Talk the Making of the Film
The gang at Shock Till You Drop caught up with “Dylan Dog: Dead of Night” director Kevin Munroe and stars Brandon Routh and Sam Worthington to find out more about the movie’s paranormal investigator. Check out our clip from “Dylan Dog” to get you ready for the film on Friday, April 29.
"Priest" Kicks Vampire Ass in New Clip
I’ve got 99 problems, but a “Priest” clip ain’t one. Here’s yet another video preview from the upcoming film starring Paul Bettany as a Warrior Priest who hunts the vampires that kidnapped his niece. In the clip, Priest and Hicks (Cam Gigandet) battle an army of newborn vamps. “Priest” hits theaters May 13.
