We’re back with another horror/sci-fi news round-up. This time around, we focus on John Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record release, the hiring of a new writer for one of the stand-alone Star Wars films, and an unpredictable new cast addition for Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV series.
It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan’s lair.

What do you think about this one?
