Back in June we told you that legendary shock rocker Alice Cooper may indeed be appearing in Tim Burton's big screen adaptation of the TV vampire soap Dark Shadows, and today the official word has come.

This past Friday night, September 23rd, the Halloween season officially kicked off in style with the 2011 Eyegore Awards held at the Globe Theater at Universal Studios in Hollywood as part of the opening night of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights.
