Toss Nazis and Zombies in a cinematic blender and what will you get? A carafe of fun! Or you should. Here’s a trailer for A Chance in Hell. A film which attempts serve up just such a celluloid smoothie. Will this be epic or an epic fail? You be the judge:

Martin Conaghan — BBC journalist, presenter and author of the comic book Burke and Hare from Insomnia Publications — offered the following good advice for aspiring comic book pros. It appears in the first installment of his column Pond Life at Bleeding Cool:
no-one is even remotely interested in how many pages of your book you’ve written today, or yesterday – and they won’t be interested tomorrow; no more than they would be interested in how many times you’ve evacuated your bowels since breakfast. (Both are synonymous). Stop talking about writing (or drawing) and just do it.
Do you have something to show the world? No? Well, go away and come back when you do.
Every word you post on Twitter is one word fewer on your script – unless your script is about what you’re saying on Twitter – and, if it is, I probably don’t want to read about it.
Perhaps he put that a bit crudely, but he’s right. There’s a difference between marketing and procrastination. And, in this digital age, many aspiring comic pros seem to forget this.
There’s equally good advice in the rest of the column. So click on the link above and give it a read.
When recently asked via Twitter about Platinum Dune’s sequel to the reboot of the Friday the 13th (ah, that’s a mouthful), producer Brad Fuller responded simply:
it is dead … not happening
And so another story is broken on Twitter! Who needs publicists?
Horror fans probably aren’t shedding too many tears about this. But the remake was a hit at the box office, and the script for the sequel was reportedly read to go. So we’re wondering what prompted this decision?

According to KENS 5 TV, a “mummified chupacabra” was stolen from a booth at the “Feista Fantasias”.
Fiesta Fantasias is a concert even held at Market Square in San Antonio, Texas. In addition to live acts, the event also features various booths. And one of them allowed attendees to view a “mumified chupacabra” for a buck a look.
The booth is run by Brian Stevens and David Walker who claim they’ve owned the chupacabra for two years, and it’s the only one in the United States. They say they purchased the specimen in Ensenada, Mexico from individuals who have two other specimens.
Stevens and Walker reported the theft to the police, and have contacted the owners of the other two specimens to borrow one for the remainder of the Fiesta. They are offering a reward for the return of the specimen, and urge anyone with any knowledge of its whereabouts to contact San Antonio Police Department.
Hmm … maybe it wasn’t stolen. Maybe it just got up and walked away.
