Tidewater Comicon - May 16-17 at Virginia Beach Convention Center

Of course a huge attraction at any comic convention is the costumed attendees, who go all out to dress up just like their favorite characters from pop culture, many of which create their own wardrobe from scratch to give that extra authentic touch.

Watch 'H2' Star Daniel Roebuck's Hilarious New Horror Short Film

Daniel Roebuck is a huge horror fan and a major collector of genre rarities that would make your eyeballs fall out, and he is also a big lover of Halloween, as evidenced in part by his very funny portrayal of Rabbit in Red owner Lou Martini (pictured below) in Rob Zombie's 2007 Halloween remake and its 2009 sequel Halloween II, and also in Roebuck's most recent short film.


Entitled Daniel, My Brother, Roebuck plays himself in this lighthearted ode to genre fanatics, getting berated by his brother (Mike Karberg) for being a 50-year-old who still collects toys. It's good fun and pretty damn funny, especially if you share any of Daniel's affections for horror collectibles, as I do.

'Tales of Halloween' To Premiere At Fantasia Festival

We can't wait for Tales of Halloween, the new anthology from 11 of our favorite directors each taking on a different story set in the same town on the same Halloween night, and now we know that the highly anticipated film will have its official world premiere screening at the annual Fantasia festival in Montreal this summer.

First Look at Jamie Lee Curtis in 'Scream Queens' Revealed!

Our first official look at Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection) as Cathy Munsch, the dean of the college, in Fox's upcoming comedy horror series Scream Queens has just arrived, via Entertainment Weekly, which also has an interview with series creator Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Glee), confirming that the show will be an homage to '80s slashers and will feature a masked killer.


Says Murphy: "It’s different than Horror Story. Jamie Lee and I were talking about that in horror movies, particularly in that era, there was always the last girl, the final girl. So we’re playing with that. Whoever survives—and there will be people who will survive—they will go on next season to a new location and a new terror. Unlike Horror Story, which completely reboots, this has some of the continuity in that some of the characters and some of the relationships continue into a new world."

[Interview] Danny Trejo Talks 'Halloween', 'Brady Bunch' and 'Machete'

Danny Trejo is a genre icon who has been in hundreds of films in his career, having faced Michael Myers in Rob Zombie's Halloween and killed as one of the few to go against The Devil's Rejects among many others, but he reached a new level earlier this year with that hilarious Brady Bunch inspired Snickers commercial that everyone can't stop talking about.


We caught up with Trejo at the Mad Monster Party horror convention last month in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we discussed everything from playing Marcia Brady to almost not getting killed by Michael Myers, revealing a shocking alternate fate that was originally intended for his Halloween character. Read on for our full interview with Danny Trejo!
