Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to Chuck Palahniuk. Palahniuk was born in 1962 and is best known for his novel, “Fight Club”. He has written many novels including “Haunted”, “Choke”, and “Survivor”. I have always been a fan of his work and I am confident there is still lots to come. Happy Birthday Chuck. Thanks for weirding us out!!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to David Naughton and Henry Rollins.  David Naughton was born in 1951.  You may know him as the Dr Pepper guy but he also starred in one of my favorite horror movies, “American Werewolf in London”.  I still love that movie like it was made yesterday.

Henry Rollins was born in 1961.  He has had small parts in quite a few horror movies but he is also a total badass so he belongs on this page.  Happy Birthday to both of these men.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to George Romero.  George was born February 4, 1940 in New York City.  He is a film director and screenwriter best known for his horror films about a zombie Apocalypse.  His first film “Night of the Living Dead” premiered in 1968 and became a cult classic.  That film was a defining moment in modern horror cinema.  Celebrate George’s birthday by popping in one of his films.  Make sure you turn the lights out!

 

 

 

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to Charles S. Dutton and Christian Bale. Charles S. Dutton was born in 1951. The versatile actor has starred in several horror films; “Alien 3“, “Mimic“, and my personal favorite “Legion”.
Christian Bale was born in 1974. He IS Batman but he will always be Patrick Bateman to me in “American Psycho”. I so completely identify him in this role that I am quite distressed to hear that they are working on a remake of the film. I really can’t imagine anyone else portraying Bateman.
Happy Birthday to both men. We all look forward to them giving us the creeps in the future.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to Edgar Allan Poe. Poe was born on January 19, 1809 in Boston, Mass. He was an American author and poet best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre. Poe is considered a pioneer of “Horror” and the inventor of the detective fiction genre. His most famous work is “The Raven” but Poe wrote many poems and short stories that have been put to stage and screen over and over. Poe passed away in 1849 at only 40 years old. His death has been attributed to many different things including alcohol, brain congestion, cholera, drugs, heart disease, rabies, suicide, tuberculosis, and other agents. Wow!! Now that’s scary.

Happy Birthday!!

 

 

 

Happy Birthday To Tony Todd.  Tony Todd was born on December 4, 1954 in Washington, District of Columbia.  Tony has become a regular face in horror movies.  In particular, he has appeared in all 5 Final Destination movies.   But Tony Todd is best known for his ultra creepy portrayal of “Candyman” in the original 1992 and subsequent sequels.  “Candyman”  will always be one of my favorite horror movies, mainly because of Tony’s performance.
