Article and interview by Kelly Dunn.

Celebrities and monster fans from all over the United States spent the weekend of July 24-26 celebrating all things horror for a good cause at the Second Annual Scares That Care Weekend film festival and convention. Held at the Doubletree By Hilton Hotel in Williamsburg, Virginia, the Scares That Care Weekend featured special guests David Naughton (American Werewolf In London), Kim Coates (Sons Of Anarchy), and Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead). But the weekend’s grande dame was horror icon and three-time Academy Award nominee Piper Laurie (Carrie, Twin Peaks, The Hustler).

Scares That Care is a horror-themed, IRS-approved, 501(c)(3) charity with a mission “to fight the Real Monsters of childhood illness, burns, and breast cancer.” Founded by retired police detective Joe Ripple and run entirely by volunteers, Scares That Care benefits families who are suffering the financial burdens of severe illness.

It's an exciting time to be a Man of Action fan. The consistently innovative and impressively productive studio / writers' collective has intriguing upcoming projects on the printed page and onscreen, and at San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead caught up with Joe Kelly, Joe Casey, Steven T. Seagle, and Duncan Rouleau, who discussed the Camp Midnight graphic novel, the respective feature films for Officer Downe and I Kill Giants, as well as Big Hero 6 and more.

As per usual with you guys, it's been another busy year for the Man of Action team. Your Comic-Con exclusive comic book from last year, The Bus: A Camp Midnight Mini, is being expanded into a 256-page graphic novel that will be released in time for Halloween. Steven, how did Camp Midnight make the transition from mini comic to full-length graphic novel?

Steven T. Seagle: The mini comic was actually a bit of a ruse. »

The beginning of May every year means one thing to me and thousands of other horror fanatics around the world. For the past ten years, it’s meant we’ve arrived at another annual Texas Frightmare Weekend.

Sons Of Anarchy’s 20 most shocking moments

28 April 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Misunderstandings, betrayals, and straight up killings, these are the moments that made Sons Of Anarchy unmissable. Spoilers...

Warning: contains spoilers for Sons Of Anarchy season 1-7

Let’s get this out of the way now: yes, there are going to be lots of things left off this list. Kurt Sutter’s biker melodrama ran for seven seasons, and pretty much every episode contained at least one jaw-dropping plot revelation and three stomach-churning scenes of extreme violence. A complex story of love, loyalty, and criminal activity, Sons Of Anarchy is one of the most relentlessly extreme shows ever aired, and it never saw a boundary it didn’t want to plough its way straight through at high speed.

So narrowing down its most shocking moments to just 20 is a tall order. But now it’s over and we’ve had time to process the final episode’s characteristically bombastic ending, it »
