This month has brought with it a wave of horror the blood thirsty masses have been lapping up for three plus weeks now. Carriers, Jennifer's Body, Sorority Row, and 9 all enjoy current theatrical runs, while the highly anticipated Pandorum will tackle the box office today. The ridiculously eerie Grace arrived on DVD shelves this month, as did Clive Barker's Book Of Blood, Deadgirl, Methodic and Rob Zombie?s The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto among others. John Sandford's latest novel Rough Country will street on the 29th, and Stephen Jay Shwartz saw his debut novel Boulevard hit stands on the 15th. Musically it's been an exceptional month for horror releases as well thanks to the extremely successful Insane Clown Posse release Bang! Pow! Boom!, while the upcoming Dethklok album Dethalbum II is poised to cause commotion on the 29th. Seems like a damn fine month for horror eh?
