I went to log onto Horrorblips just now, and to my shock and horror it wasn’t there! A page came up saying that the site was no longer available and thanks to all the readers and bloggers for their support. So…. does anyone know what the hell happened? I’d like to know, as the site was a great way to keep up with all of the blogs and their newest posts in one spot. At least there’s still the Horror Blogger Alliance
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MUSICAL returns to Chicago for a limited week-long run in September as part of the Chicago Fringe Fest. The show, a production of the New Millennium Theatre Company, originally ran in 2008 from late September through early November for the Halloween season. I personally have not seen the show, but have heard nothing but great things. Come on, what could be better than a musical version of one the best horror films of all time? The show runs from Sept 1st through the 5th at the EP Theatre in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. For further info on showtimes (they’re different each day), and how to get tickets, check out the New Millennium site here
