Ever wonder why David Slade’s Twitter page disappeared after he got the job directing Twilight Eclipse?
Could it be because of this Tweet:
Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.
Slade issued an apology for slagging Twilight. I’m sure all the Twilight fans are feeling much better.
Hans Holzer, the Viennese parapsychologist and author of more than a hundred books on the Occult and supernatural has passed away. Holzer investigated hauntings along with a medium.

SFist has a story that names Guy Ward Hendrickson as the infamous hooded killer. The accuser is his daughter who says that her father took her along on some of the killings, that she embroidered his mask and that once he hid a gun in the back of her pants.
The catch? This is a recovered memory. So for years this woman went along never knowing that her father was a killer and then suddenly she remembered it. It reminds me of the former LA cop who is convinced that his father was the Black Dahlia killer. Seems like some people resolve their daddy issues by blaming Daddy for serial killings.
According to The New York Daily News Peter Brett wrote his dark fantasy novel, The Warded Man, on the F-Train riding from his home in Brooklyn to his job in Manhattan. His writing implement? A smart phone!
“I wrote over 100,000 words on the train,” he said.
The novel is about three characters fighting killer demons who roam the world at night, and is the first of a trilogy. Interesting way to write a book and the book seems to be something that would appeal to horror fans.
