Some very good news for all you out there chomping at the bit for Trick ‘r Treat updates: The film just nabbed itself the Audience Choice Award at this year’s Screamfest! ”Not bad for a flick that doesn't even have a release date,” director Mike Dougherty commented. ”It's the little horror movie that could!”
Those madmen with their electronic toys, namely Andrew Kasch and David Rosiak, pummeled the horror celebs making their way down the red carpet at last Saturday’s Scream Awards 2008 and have submitted the video evidence to prove their badassness!

We just got a very cool scoop from a spy who got to chat with Friday the 13th 3-D supervisor Martin Sadoff recently. He revealed to us that he’s in the process of trying to get the film released onto Blu-ray in its original 3-D format!
All right, I’ve seen some weird shit during this ongoing political campaign, but I really thought the choice of Palin as Republican vice presidential candidate was going to be the most insane. Leave it to Sid Haig to prove me wrong.
Issue #83 October 2008 Seems like just the other day my former editor contacted me about this new horror magazine from Canada who really wanted to start getting U.S. exposure called Rue Morgue. I agreed to check it out, even interviewed the editor-in-chief at the time, Rodrigo Gudino, and thus began a love affair with one of the coolest horror magazines ever produced.
Now this is what I call a well-stacked site! Sure it may not be the most spooky of places right off the bat, but the official Coraline site has got a lot of goodies to explore and eventually you’re bound to find something that gives you the chills.

At the recent Scream Awards, which went down last night in Hollywood, word came down to STYD that Ron Perlman is jumping on board Season of the Witch, the period horror piece from Gone in 60 Seconds helmer Dominic Sena.
There have been many good things to come out of the 2008 Scream Awards (expect a list of winners soon), and an interesting little tidbit has crept its way into our ever listening ears. Saw sequel and Repo-man Darren Lynn Bousman let it fly tonight that he will be making another horror movie with Twisted Pictures that will star Repo alumna Alexa Vega.
Thanks to the great people who put on Rock and Shock each year in beautiful downtown Worcester, Mass., I had last week off from Wrap-Up duties; but now, despite this nasty cold I brought home with me, it's back to work.
Well, at least we can end the week on the good news that Zack Snyder’s long-awaited zombie epic, Army of the Dead, has still got a pulse. As it were.
