Each weekend we include independent horror news sent our way. If you want to be featured in our next round-up, send us an email.

Dark Harvest: Legacy of Frankenstein: Fans of Frankenstein or horror-themed role playing games may be interested in an alternate take on the Frankenstein story in Dark Harvest:

"What if Victor Frankenstein had embraced his discoveries rather than seeking to destroy them? Dark Harvest: Legacy of Frankenstein is a detailed, fascinating game setting, a terrifyingly plausible alternative history and a fiction anthology; a gothic horror fantasy that will appeal to gamers and the general public alike."

Chopper #1 Released: "Written by screenwriter Martin Shapiro and drawn by acclaimed Dark Horse artist Juan Ferreyra (Falling Skies, Rex Mundi), Chopper is a modern-day reimagining of the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow fame. After taking a strange new drug with supernatural side effects at a party, the rebellious teenage daughter of a police officer starts seeing ghosts and is stalked by the Reaper, a headless biker on a motorcycle who collects the souls of sinners in the afterlife."

Will they want to?"
