Some extraterrestrial sounds are coming to Fear Faire next month, with Alien Ant Farm set to rock the music event, and those lucky enough to be in attendance.
The Fear Faire Music Festival will take place at the Rio Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas, hosting all kinds of shows and events for the Friday the 13th weekend.
Singer Dryden Mitchell, guitarist Terry Corso, bassist Tim Peugh and drummer Mike Cosgrove will take the stage on Saturday, May 14, marking the first time Alien Ant Farm has played together on stage in over two years. Other musical guests will include former members of Oingo Boingo, Voodoo Hacked and Glass Generation.
Tickets start at $40 for The Fear Faire weekend in Vegas, where horror fans can not only enjoy the Friday the 13th celebration, but good music as well.
April 18 - Monday
Lionsgate is thinking like a Blair Witch fan and asking, where are all the Blair Witch scares at?
The company hopes to resolve that problem soon, according to Jeff Snieder, who took to Twitter with the good news that Lionsgate was hard at work on more Blair Witch content.
The Blair Witch Project first gave life to the franchise back in 1999, when the film became a blockbuster success, while simultaneously propelling indie film making to the forefront of the millennium. Two sequels, four video games and a series of books under the franchise’s belt already, Blair Witch inspired content could see a big comeback, now that streaming has become the norm.
Bad news for those that were looking forward to the Mina Harker film that was in the works, unfortunately it has been cancelled.
Karyn Kusama’s project was announced back in 2020, with Blumhouse and Miramax Films set to produce the film inspired by the character from Bram Stoker's "Dracula".
Jasmine Cephas Jones was attached to star in the film, with Kusama collaborators Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi writing the script. With this Dracula related project on the outs, fans of Bram Stoker’s beloved bloodsucker will still have other Count related projects to check out, some coming out as early as next year.
