Knott’s Scary Farm is an event in Southern California that I personally look forward to each year. Whether it is the mazes, rides, or amazing shows, this event never disappoints.
*Editor's Note: As mentioned earlier this week, we decided to try something different with our "End of the Year" list, opting for our favorite horror experiences in 2013 over a top movies list. We hope you've enjoyed reading our writers' picks, which not only includes movies, but performances, events, and collectibles. Wrapping up our Favorites of 2013 is Kristian Hanson, who shares some of his favorite movies, collectibles, and TV shows:
Last night marked the opening of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood and we were invited to check out their new haunted attraction, which included a maze inspired by The Walking Dead. We have more impressions and photos coming soon, but wanted to give Daily Dead readers an exclusive look at The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven.
Dynamite Entertainment has been publishing an ongoing Army of Darkness comic book series and we're going to start featuring it more frequently here on Daily Dead. Similar to the other comics we cover, you can expect an early look at the cover art, previews pages, and interviews for this title.
To get things started, Kristian interviewed Elliott R. Serrano, the writer of the Army of Darkness comic book series, who tells us about writing new adventures for Ash and where the series is headed:

Continue reading to learn about his thoughts on the Bigfoot myth, the challenges of getting the film made, upcoming projects, and his advice for independent filmmakers:
Kristian brought readers an exclusive interview with Adam Green during the San Diego Comic Con and he recently had a chance to talk to Adam Green and Joe Lynch once again during their promotion of Holliston's Season 1 Blu-ray/DVD release. Not only did he learn about some of their favorite moments from the first season, but what we can expect from season 2. They also shared some interesting stories about encounters with crazy fans at horror events:

Jen and Sylvia Soska made a big splash recently at Cannes with American Mary and Kristian caught up with the Soska sisters to ask them about their Cannes experience and upcoming projects. He also learned about their favorite movies, most wanted superpower, and their weapon of choice in a zombie apocalypse:
It's Saturday night in Los Angeles and the smell of cheeseburgers and french fries is in the air. I'm in the world famous Jerry's Deli and had the privilege of interviewing Jason R. Miller of ArieScope Pictures. Jason has had his hand in films like Hatchet, Frozen, Hatchet 2 and most recently Chillerama. Being a fan of all of those movies, I wanted to find out how he got involved in horror movies.
During my talk with Jason, I learned about how he made it to Los Angeles from Boston, how he got a job at ArieScope, and why John Landis of An American Werewolf in London fame is his mortal enemy. Sit back and relax, as we recant the blood, guts and duties of answering the phone for Adam Green at ArieScope Pictures.
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is the one event every year that I really look forward to. I wait anxiously for tickets to go on sale, and when they do, I am one of the first to grab a front of the line pass. Last year I waited until Halloween night to go, but this year, I decided I needed to get in there on opening night for some fun and screams!
It was a chilly night in Los Angeles, California and I was sitting in a cemetery preparing to watch a horror movie that nobody had seen before. That is right, I said a cemetery. The Hollywood Forever Cemetery to be exact, and tonight’s guests were Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Adam Rifkin and Tim Sullivan.
For those that do not know about this cemetery, the greats like Bela Lugosi, Mel Blanc and Johnny Ramone all rest here, and during the summers, you too can rest here at night, with a film and a drink.
