*UPDATED* Boogey Nights



Boogeyman 2When I woke up this morning, I took part in my usual routine. Went outside, then ran back after realizing I was still naked. Much to the chagrin of my neighbors. Ahem … went outside (again) and grabbed the morning paper.

Immediately I turned to the obituaries. Score! I wasn’t in them. That meant it was time to hop in the shower.

There I was scrubbing away at my ass and contemplating the meaning of life when I had a startling vision — You know what we need? A sequel to Boogeyman!

In a moment of Twilight Zone type strangeness, after I was done rinsing off, I turned on the computer and was led via e-mail to a story posted on Production Weekly that sent shivers down my spine and then straight out of my ass.

Hold on to your sanity, folks! We ARE getting Boogeyman 2!

Jeff Betancourt, the editor of the upcoming The Grudge 2, is set to make his directorial debut on this horror sequel. You know how it goes: Work on one sequel, work on them all.

This time out the story will focus on the exploits of a young woman with a long-term phobia of the Boogeyman. Tired of dealing with her nighttime terror, she voluntarily checks herself into a loony bin in hopes of getting a grip. Of course in true horror fashion, shit like this never works out and spooky hi-jinks will surely abound.

This just in — The following casting call has gone out:

FEMALE – 18-21, beautiful, likable, warm, and intelligent…

MALE – 18-21, twin brother, cured of his fear of the Boogeyman, warm, supportive, eager…

New Archie Horror Series Vampironica Is Out for Blood!



Vampironica is a new Archie Horror series launching in March from Greg and Megan Smallwood that we first heard about back in 2015 at the SDCC, and knowing what a big fan base the series has – plus the fact that American Werewolf in London and Fright Night were big influences on the writers, we thought we’d share the latest info on what’s in store for us come spring!

Here are the details of the series, including a look at all the various covers to be had.

From the Press Release:
She’s beautiful. She’s deadly. She’s Vampironica!

Greg and Megan Smallwood are bringing a new terror to the streets of Riverdale as Veronica Lodge is bitten by a centuries-old vampire in a new Archie Horror series launching this March – VAMPIRONICA.

After being turned, will Veronica’s new-found thirst for blood turn Riverdale into a haven for the undead, or will she put an end to the vampire threat herself? The team of Greg (co-writer, artist) and Megan Smallwood (co-writer) and letterer Jack Morelli are set to turn Riverdale red in the latest twisted take on the classic Archie Comics characters.

“Fans can rest assured that we’ll be staying faithful to the core of these characters,” said co-writer Greg Smallwood. “It was very important to Megan and I that Vampironica be the same Veronica that we all know and love, only now with fangs.”

“Greg and I were both very interested in exploring the concept of a vampire Veronica without getting rid of what makes Veronica such a special character,” said co-writer Megan Smallwood. “Ironically, Vampironica humanizes Veronica in a way that only horror can. Becoming a vampire is a humbling experience for her, and she’s forced to open up and expose a little vulnerability.”

The new series will explore how Veronica adapts to her new place as one of Riverdale’s freshest members of the undead while drawing influence from classic horror films.

“I’d say that our biggest influences are American Werewolf in London and Fright Night. Both films can be quite horrific, but there’s also a lot of strong characterization and humor to them,” said Greg. “I think horror works best with a small dose of comedy for levity so we’ve used the same formula on Vampironica.”

“Veronica Lodge is not the kind of girl to join any ranks, let alone vampire ranks. True to form, Veronica instead relies on her own gut instincts,” said Megan. “They haven’t let her down in life, and they won’t let her down as she navigates the surreal world of the undead.”

VAMPIRONICA #1 launches in comic shops and on digital platforms March 14, 2018, and features variant covers by Francesco Francavilla, Audrey Mok, Djibril Morrissette-Phan, and Marguerite Sauvage.

When Veronica is bitten by a centuries-old vampire, her thirst for blood threatens to turn Riverdale into a haven for the undead. Will she put an end to the vampire threat or give in to her bloodlust?
