phantasm II

I became familiar with the idea of the horror genre having a bit of a community built around it at an early age.  I'm certain that this existed in other fandoms back in the early 80's as well, but for me, it was certainly there in the horror community.  Over time, some friends have come and gone and the rituals have changed, but I still always find myself drawn to like minded people.  It just happens, kind of like radar.  

Sometimes dreams do come true! Phantasm II is finally being released on DVD! September 15th is the date of history when we all finally get to hold the second coming of Reggie Bannister in our hands.

Word is out that Spitfire Pictures is going to remake the 1974 Hammer flick Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires. No news on who will star in this kung-fu vampire camp fest, but Peter Cushing is dead, so what's the point?

As if you hadn't had enough "Trick 'r Treat" news this week, this ill-fated movie is also getting the graphic novel treatment and you can see the first five pages here.

If you were for some reason excited about the news yesterday that Robert Rodriguez is hoping for an extended 'Ahnold' cameo in his upcoming "Predator" flick, Rodriguez himself has come out to quash those rumors.
