For those of you who caught the debut of the Flavor Flav-hosted anthology Nite Tales on BET last Halloween who have been anxiously awaiting more info about it, we have some good news. THR reports that Flav and filmmaker Deon Taylor announced on the eve of the NATPE Market & Conference that Nite Tales is becoming an anthology series!
You’ve been waiting for it; finally another film from the creative mind of Deon Taylor (producer of Chain Letter) is upon us; the sorta-anthology Nite Tales! I say “sorta” because there are only two stories here so I guess it’s more of a normal film broken up into two parts?
We just got a heads up that there’s another new teaser online for the indie anthology Edges of Darkness, which is comprised of three tales set against the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse. Still no word on a release for the film yet, but I’m sure we’ll hear more soon.
Last month we told you guys about yet another foreign production house that Brian Yuzna helped create called Komodo Films. The big announcement at the time was that Komodo would be producing a trio of 3D films out of the gate, but it seems they’ve had their hands in other movies as well.
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.
