saturn awards

You know what? It's Friday. I'm just going to go ahead and set your day on edge by making you watch this clip from "Predator: The Musical". You can thank me later.

Well it's about time. Lance Henriksen is writing an autobiography titled "Not Bad For a Hum". It's going to be published by comic scribe Steve Niles over at his Bloody Pulp Books imprint too. Finally, somebody besides Lance and myself think Lance is awesome enough to warrant an autobiography! For full details, be sure to visit the official site for Not Bad For a Human

Speaking of Steve Niles, this guy's on fire! According to a recent post at his website, the writer has announced he will be penning a comic version of "Nevermore", the one man stage play based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe that stars Jeffery Combs! Combs will be involved in the comic as well, so this will be one to watch. Well, one to watch if you're a Poe/Comic nerd like me.

This year's Saturn Awards nominee's are in and there's a fair share of genre flicks getting the nod this year. Among them are "Let Me In" and "Shutter Island" landing nominations for Best Horror Film, "Splice" for Best Science Fiction and "Twilight Eclipse" for Best Fantasy Film! Oh wait... should have read that list all the way through. At any rate, there are plenty of good horror films being nominated, so check out the full list at the Saturn Awards Site!

Since we're talking awards and I'm known around these parts as our official "P.R. Bear", I'd be remiss if I didn't take this moment in the spotlight for a reminder! The Bloody Good Horror Podcast has been nominated for a Rondo Award in the Best Horror Audio category! You should head over to the Rondo Awards site and cast your ballot for your favorite Podcast that's hosted by five guys named Eric, Mark, Jon, Joe and Casey! Not that I'm telling you who to vote for or anything...
