Vanessa Hudgens To Be Hunted For Sport In Frozen Ground

You know, with a headline like that, I’ve pretty much got to deliver something truly impressive, and thanks to the folks out at the Toronto International Film Festival and terror hottie Vanessa Hudgens, well, I think I can pull it off. It’s called Frozen Ground, and it’s got a lot of surprises.

Based on the true story of Alaskan serial killer Robert Hansen, Frozen Ground follows a man who, on the surface, was a respected family man, but just below the surface lurked a crazed killer. Hansen abducted fully 24 women, flew them into the heart of Alaskan wilderness (of which there is plenty of that in Alaska) and then hunted them for sport. But one got away to tell the tale, and that’s who Vanessa Hudgens will be playing.

Sound exciting? It does, at least to me. But we’ve all seen movies like this that sound great on the surface but promptly blow up in our faces. The question of the day will be whether or not they can manage to pull off the execution. Considering that John Cusack and Nicolas Cage are also involved, well, I’m prepared to believe this one might come off.

It’s still making the festival circuit, so just when it comes out is as yet quite unclear, but when we’ve got a date on this we’ll pass it on!

Beastly Expands Cast, Adds To Terror Hottie Pool

(Vanessa Hudgens)

Excuse me for being slightly terrified by a horror movie described as “an edgy teen romance” and coming to us from CBS Films, but I’m just downright unnerved by the fact that I’m going to have to call not only Mary-Kate Olsen but also Vanessa Hudgens terror hotties now because of it.

There are times when I wish our policy on terror hotties was not quite so liberal.  Sure, we’ll take pretty much any woman who’s involved in horror, be she writer, director or actor, and considering we’ve taken June Lockhart and Zelda Rubenstein into our ranks you know we’re willing to go where most won’t.

But seriously…Vanessa “High School Musical” Hudgens and Mary-Kate “Full House” Olsen?  Is there no limit?  The answer is, no, there really isn’t.  They’re in on this “edgy teen romance” horror flick about a cursed rich kid who blows off a date and in the process looks like the monster he acts inside.  Even more, it’ll be in theaters July 30, 2010.

Probably The Most Unlikely Terror Hotties Yet

Well here’s a baffler for you…apparently, thanks to the folks at CBS, whom I’m now looking at with incredibly conflicted feelings—as in, should I hate them with the fury of a thousand suns or laugh myself into a shallow coma?—both Mary Kate Olsen and Vanessa Hudgens have joined the ranks of the terror hottie.

No, seriously.

They’re going to be in a “horror-romancer” called Beastly, and it’s basically a remake of Beauty and the Beast set in New York.  Shooting has already begun, and the results of said shooting are scheduled to land July 30, 2010 in theatres.

I got nothing.  I’m just entirely too puzzled by this.  Who in their right mind would ever picture Vanessa Hudgens and Mary Kate Olsen as terror hotties?  I’m not convinced this could ever end well, but I suppose it might.  And if nothing else, it might serve as a good date movie or something, something to get the ladies more into horror flicks.  But I’m not holding my breath, and neither should you.
