Horror News for your weekend, sorry a little short at the moment butstill some horror snippets for you to enjoy.
Just two little snippets of news the first is the most bizarre news that Jim Henson's Labyrinth is definitely getting a sequel, and is going to be directed by Fede Alvarez the director of Evil Dead 2013, and most recently Don't Breathe, I'm not sure if it is going to be using the old puppets that was famous by Jim Henson's company, and obviously it will be without the Goblin King who was played by the late great David Bowie. I'm betting it will definitely be a darker tone, but then again the original Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal both by Jim Henson were both far too dark for the younger audience anyway.
Finally Robert Englund was at an event recently and was asked by the interviewer in his history of playing Freddy Krueger what was his famous onscreen kill, now I'm surprised by his response as I always thought the greatest was in A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors, with Jennifer Caulfield gets her head smashed in to the TVs, with the Robert Englund improvised words " fuck the prime time bitch!!!" But apparently his favourite all time kill is from A Nightmare On Elm Street 6 Freddy's Dead, which is definitely the weakest of the franchise, in which Carlos Rodriguez a deaf teenager, gets his hearing aid back from Freddy, to grow into his ears and hears amplified sounds to such an extent his head explodes. Robert said he enjoyed that scene and the practical effects as it reminded him of the famous head explosion from David Cronenberg's Scanners.
