A trailer has been released for Holidays, the new holiday themed horror anthology flick we found out about a little over a year ago.
The movie features a list of directors including Kevin Smith, who was known for his work in the realms of comedy before jumping over to horror with movies like Red State, Tusk, and the upcoming Yoga Hosers, and who got the prime Halloween holiday to work on here. Other directors include Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), who takes on St. Patrick’s Day; Adam Egypt Mortimer (Some Kind of Hate), who gets New Year’s; Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch (Starry Eyes) with the lovers’ holiday Valentine’s Day; Scott Stewart (Dark Skies) delivering the Christmas segment; Nick McCarthy (The Pact), who gets Easter; Sarah Adina Smith (The Midnight Swim) grabs Mother’s Day; and finally Anthony Scott Burns (Manifold) with Father’s Day.

Directed by George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Creepshow), 1993’s The Dark Half is based on Stephen King‘s novel of the same name.
In order to talk about Romero’s adaptation of The Dark Half, first we must discuss a little history. In the late ’70s and early ’80s, King published a handful of short novels – Rage (1977), The Long Walk (1979), Roadwork (1981), The Running Man (1982), and Thinner (1984) “” under the pseudonym Richard Bachman.
Shortly after the release of Thinner, Bachman was exposed as King’s pseudonym by a Washington D.C. bookstore clerk who noticed similarities between the two authors. The clerk, Steve Brown, wrote to King with the evidence he’d gathered, and King called him days later to come clean in an exclusive interview. The interview was published in The Washington Post, and King announced Bachman’s death – from “cancer of the pseudonym.”
