That distant sound of hooves you're hearing is the Four Horseman finally come to lay claim to the Earth because for the third day in a row we’ve got info about another film project involving Famous Horror Author Joe Knetter.
Wow, two stories about movies with Joe Knetter in them in two days. If I’m not mistaken that’s one of the Biblical signs of the apocalypse. I could be wrong, though; it’s been a while since I’ve read my Bible.
Me? I'm a sucker for two kinds of movies ... zombie flicks and anthologies. The latter totally rules because with really short stories, if you're bored by one segment, another will be starting soon enough. Which is why I was glad to hear about director Ethan Terra joining forces with John Carl Buechler to bring us Monsterpiece Theatre.
We got some info in our inbox today about another new indie film you’ll be hearing a lot about soon called Slices. Instead of being a standard narrative, though, this one’s an anthology in the vein of Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie.
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!”

Another new title has been added to this year’s Screamfest LA lineup, one that horror fans have been waiting over a year to finally see for themselves: Mike Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat! Yesterday I got a postcard in the mail with Friday, October 10th, listed as the premiere date for the film at Mann’s Chinese 6 Theatre, which means it's opening the festival in style!
While I hope this turns out to be just a rumor, unfortunately there’s too much validity in it to ignore. The STYD guys heard from one of their readers today that, since Warner Bros. have no plans to release Mike Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat in theaters, there’s a good chance we’ll only be seeing it on DVD.
An interesting development went down yesterday that we’re still trying to get some kind of official details on one way or another. Warner Bros. sent out its fall preview to all us internet journalists, and though nothing specific was mentioned in terms of a release date, Mike Dougherty’s long-suffering Trick ‘r Treat was still on the list.
