Good day, horror fans. Has anyone had to go back to the store to pick up more Halloween candy after eating the first batch, or is that just me? There isn’t too much going on in theaters around the country this past week, though the VOD scene lit up with the releases of both the meta-remake The Town That Dreaded Sundown and the awesome-looking New Zealand comedy horror Housebound.

In smaller news, Relativity has moved The Woman in Black: Angel of Death from January 30, 2015 to January 2, 2015. Making their way to Blu-ray from Shock Factory are a Lord of Illusions Director’s Cut, as well as the TV remake of Carrie and the big screen sequel The Rage: Carrie II. Universal has acquired and given an April 10, 2015 release date for the thriller Cybernatural, which will take place entirely on a computer screen. And now, they’re coming to get you, Barbra.

George Romero’s Son Wants to Carry on the Zombie Legacy
Like father, like son. Living Dead franchise creator George Romero’s son Cameron wants to tell the origin story of the zombie as his dad envisioned it, and he’s created an Indiegogo project to handle part of the funding. (George will be partially producing it.) Cameron is looking for $150,000 to fund it, and has already reached over $24,800 in just five days. It seems likely that this will get funded by the time its November 15th deadline hits. While part of me wants to balk at this, it is the sub-genre's godfather backing it, both in vision and in genetics. Check out the promotional Indiegogo video below.

Origins will take place in 1962 and will tell the story of Dr. Ryan Cartwright, who "was on the scientific and altruistic path to find a way for humans to sustain life in the event of M.A.D. (Mutual Assured Destruction), a huge topic brought on by the Cuban Missile Crisis." Cartwright eventually creates whatever sets the zombie outbreak in motion as a government project, thus hitting upon the socio-political angle that George Romero put into his zombie flicks. Regardless of whether you think this is a dumb idea or not, all it takes is $10,000 to make yourself a featured zombie death in the film. Totally worth it. Does the ability to tell quality zombie stories run in the Romero family?
