Lily Collins

Lily Collins has gone from playing Snow White in the upcoming "Mirror, Mirror," to possibly kicking some undead ass in "The Evil Dead" remake.

THR reports that Collins is in "early talks" for the updating of the legendary horror-comedy that starred Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash. Bloody-Disgusting has some additional details, stating that Collins would play Mia, the lead character and a female version of Ash, who heads to a cabin in the woods with friends. They discover a Book of the Dead, demons are unleashed, and Mia's left fighting for her life. While that sounds familiar, there's also a bizarre druggie subplot, as Mia is staying at the cabin to try to overcome an addiction and heal from a recent overdose.

We'll find out more when Fede Alvarez's version hits the screen on April 12, 2013. For now, let us know what you think about the possibility of Collins being cast as a lady Ash, and dig into the rest of this week's horror news past the break!

Human Centipede

Our friends across the pond will finally be able to revel in Tom Six's gruesome sequel to last year's intestinal favorite, "The Human Centipede."

Part two — which hits US theaters this Friday — was banned in Britain due to "sexual violence" and other atrocities. UK censors have approved the movie's release after making 32 cuts, which amounted to removing 2 minutes 37 seconds of footage. Some of the gory details that were axed include the "graphic sight of a man's teeth being removed with a hammer; graphic sight of lips being stapled to naked buttocks." In a statement, Eureka — the movie's overseas distributor — said they feel " … that the storyline has not been compromised and the level of horror has been sustained." UK horror fans will have to let us know if they agree with that or not.

A while back Donnie Wahlberg told me he watched the first "Human Centipede" and "faced" his own fears about a psychopath who mutilates humans and makes them into, you guessed it, human centipedes. Witness his words of encouragement for yourself...

Inspired by Donnie's courage (and because Movies Blog editor Josh Wigler forced me to), I decided to "face the fear" and watch the new trailer for "The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)," which premiered online last night. I did this for all of you. Behold my real time reactions past the jump!

Attack the Block"Attack the Block," easily one of the most buzzed-about films in recent memory thanks to its film festival presence over the past year, is finally facing a wide-scale release thanks to Screen Gems. The film's a genre bender in the purest sense of the term: it's got science fiction, it's got comedy and, most relevantly to this particular column, it's chock full of horror.

If you're not already up to "Attack" speed, we can catch you up quite a bit, thanks to the recently released red-band trailer for the film. You'll find that trailer, plus updates on the "Human Centipede" sequel and more, past the jump. Welcome to this week's Horror Bites.

Last week, we told you that the gruesome sequel to Tom Six's "Human Centipede" – about a surgeon who stitches together a gory human chain for his own amusement – was waiting to receive approval by UK censors before a release date was announced. History has taught us that the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) doesn't look too kindly on films with extreme, graphic violence and sexuality, so it came as no surprise, really, when news surfaced that "The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)" has been officially banned in the UK. This means that the board has refused to give the film a classification, making it illegal to distribute.

Six has a few weeks to appeal the ban, but BBFC director David Cooke has stated that cutting the film still wouldn't make it acceptable for viewing. What prompted the British censors to inflict such an extreme ruling? The answer to that question and much more is in this week's Horror Bites.
