Before I get into the birthday goodies, there are a few things to catch up on.
:: Just 10 days from now is the release of Come To Daddy in select theaters and VOD. As announced, live streaming from the Alamo Drafthouse theaters are taking place, and this is no exception. There will be one with Elijah and Ant from the Drafthouse in LA on February 3 and extending to those attending at The Frida Cinema. No word if the stream will air on their Facebook page, but it wouldn't hurt to check it out.
:: Color Out Of Space opened this past weekend and performed very well in its limited release. It's set to expand to more theaters this coming weekend.
:: For the fans of Richard Stanley, who directed Color Out of Space, there are a couple of interviews you should like. First, a podcast from Post Mortem with Mick Garris. Second, Daniel Noah conducted one of his own for Fangoria. You can read all three parts on their site. [Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3]
:: The Color Out of Space soundtrack is available to listen to on Spotify. If you're into the vinyl, you can get that too!
:: Lastly, let's help Elijah celebrate his 39th birthday. Hold on... wait. 39? That number doesn't seem right. If you have a Twitter or Facebook account, send him some birthday wishes and hashtag it #HappyBirthdayElijah or #Happy39Elwood or whatever you wish. We do what we've been doing here, and showing our gifts for the birthday boy. Click on the image below and sing a spirited round of
That's all... for now, and Happy Birthday Elijah!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a pleasant holiday season. With the old decade behind us and a new one starting, let's get to it.
:: SpectreVision's, Color Out Of Space had a special screening in Los Angeles this week. There were many anxious fans waiting in line for hours to be brain-smacked by it and to sit in on the Q&A after. Some photos from the screening are beginning to trickle in.
:: Come To Daddy is about three weeks away from being released on the general public, but don't feel left out UK, you're covered! First, there's a new UK poster out. Second, you can now pre-order the movie at Amazon, and third, there will be a couple of showings of the movie in February at The Prince Charles Cinema.
:: It's pretty difficult to find one good review of Come To Daddy, because there's so many goods ones to choose from! In any case, I've put some together in the movie review section.
:: The movie's director, Ant Timpson, is sharing his experiences on making his debut feature film. Here are some of the photos he's posted, along with others I came across.      You can read and see more about the location, finding the house and journey he and Elijah took with his appearance on Ant's Twitter.
:: I've been to Fantastic Fest three times, and one of the things I love most is that festival attendees can get to know the people behind the films with Q&As. Directors, DPs, actors... Now the Alamo Drafthouse is extending that privilege to all their theaters, starting with Come To Daddy next month, where Elijah and Ant will be in attendance. Read more abut this change at Variety.
:: 20 years ago this month, Ian McKellen reached New Zealand to being working on The Lord of the Rings. He kept a journal during that time and now he's shared it with us. It's filled with his personal experiences and lots of photos, so go take a look at his blog, The Grey Book.
:: I finally got to see the film Daniel Isn't Real and it's everything and more that I've been reading about. Emotional, trippy, creepy... all the juicy things SpectreVision excels at. If you're a big horror fan, the movie is up for Best Limited Release at Fangoria's Chainsaw Awards, so hop on over there and place your votes.
:: Lastly, you-know-who's birthday is right around the corner, so if you have your artworks, poems, greetings or videos, send them in!
That's all... for now.
