After Dark Horror Fest will be returning... um yay? They've announced the next two films that will appear, named "Faithless" and "Perkins 14" respectively. The kicker this time around is that they're producing the films themselves, which is a first for the outlet.
Kevin Munroe (TMNT) will be directing "Dylan Dog", an adaptation of a graphic novel about a Private Investigator who gets sucked into the world of the undead. The title is being changed to "Dead of Night" for the film version. Also, "TMNT" was a lot better than it had any right to be, so I have to say I'm looking forward to this. Anyone out there familiar with the comic?
Dario Argento's "Mother of Tears" will be playing at Horror Hound Weekend in Pittsburgh this June. What's more? The boys at the mag have just announced that at the convention, they will be holding the first ever screening of "Dawn of the Dead" at the Munroeville Mall! Those nerds out there (like us here at the site) will recall that that is the very mall where George Romero and crew filmed the zombie sequel. So, grab your tickets today and be a part of history.
1999: Actress Dana Plato, who played Kimberly Drummond on Diff'rent Strokes, dies in Oklahoma of an overdose of Valium and Loritab. Just the previous day, Plato had appeared on the Howard Stern syndicated radio program claiming to be clean and sober.
I saw "Iron Man" this morning at a matinée showing, and for the sake of catharsis I just wanted to blurt out a few thoughts here on my blog. I'd love to hear what you guys think if you want to leave your own thoughts in the comments.
