You might think “The Walking Dead” star is a natural badass with a crossbow, but you’d be wrong. Dead wrong.
On a recent episode of Conan, late-night host Conan O’Brien showed the audience hilarious early training footage of THE WALKING DEAD star Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) struggling with a crossbow. Why shoot a zombie in the head with an arrow, when you can just throw the entire crossbow at it instead?
Check out the footage below!

Making its debut this coming weekend at the Rock and Shock show in Worcester MA is the convention documentary FANTASM. The film takes an in depth and behind the scenes look at conventions and the people and celebrities that attend them. As any of us who attend conventions with any regularity can attest, there is nothing quite like the vibe of hanging out with a bunch of like minded horror geeks for an entire weekend and FANTASM attempts to bring a little of that experience home via DVD.
Holding the premiere at Rock and Shock isn’t an accident according to director Kyle Kuchta “Rock and Shock was the first convention I went to as a kid, and those experiences were the inspiration behind Fantasm. To be able to premiere the film there is an absolute honor.”
While showing what a great time a convention can be we are also treated to insight of some celebrities in attendance. The likes of Tom Atkins, Heather Langenkamp and Lloyd Kaufman share their views on conventions and those that attend. While certainly not the first documentary to attempt to capture the convention experience, early word is that this one is a notch above the rest. If you’re heading to Rock and Shock this weekend make it a priority to get in on this one. For the rest of us, I’m sure there is a DVD/Blu-ray announcement in our future.

That’s right boils ‘n ghouls. Perhaps one of the greatest Halloween Horror films to come our way in decades, TRICK ‘r TREAT is finally getting a sequel. While I think the film is one of those masterpieces that doesn’t necessarily need a sequel, with the right people involved, I think we, the fans, may very well have another masterpiece on our hands!
[Recently, at the] Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, there was a special screening of Trick ‘r Treat for Beyond Fest. This screening was also live streamed and featured a Q&A with Bryan Singer and stars of the film. It was during the Q&A that the subject of “Trick ‘r Treat 2? was brought up. Michael Dougherty, the film’s director, said it was out of his hands. That’s when a representative from Legendary Pictures stood up and shouted “Let’s make a sequel!” and then the screen behind the Q&A participants lit up with the Trick ‘r Treat 2 logo. It was also revealed that Dougherty would be directing the new film.
CHECK OUT THE Q&A VIDEO AFTER THE BREAK AND A BIT MORE FROM DOUGHERTY ABOUT WHAT WE MAY HAVE IN STORE FOR TRICK ‘R TREAT 2!

Z*CON is feature length film about four teen podcasters who are trapped at a comic convention when the zombie apocalypse breaks out. They use social media to share what’s going on inside with the outside world. It’s kind of like “Goonies” meets “Shaun of the Dead” set in…well….a comic convention.
Oh…and 100% of the net proceeds from this film will go to charities such as The American Red Cross & Kids Need To Read! Pretty cool idea, huh? The IndieGoGo Campaign will be running from October 1st (hey, that’s today, so why aren’t you already donating?!) until November 9th, so while you have 40 days to contribute, you never know when the zombie apocalypse will hit, so head on over and start helping with the funding now!
I, for one, am incredibly excited about this project. If there’s any place for a zombie outbreak to occur, it’s going to be at a Con. Of course you’ll have your cowards and pants-pissers, but if I know anything, I know Con people, and I can guarantee that at least half (and this is a conservative number) have a zombie outbreak plan all ready to go. Weapons, however, will definitely prove an issue when all you have to work with is fake props and “boffer” swords. Regardless, we geeks are a hardy crowd and a zombie outbreak inside of a Con, while a nightmare to some, is a dream come true for horror fans!

Check ‘em out after the break!
In the highly anticipated new season, we find Rick and the group fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The group’s home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.).
