John Harrison worked alongside master of horror George A. Romero for many years, their collaboration starting on DAWN OF THE DEAD, in which Harrison appeared as the "screwdriver zombie". Harrison went on to work as first A.D. on CREEPSHOW and DAY OF THE DEAD, have an acting role in KNIGHTRIDERS, write and direct episodes of Tales from the Darkside (he also directed the feature film), and compose the scores for CREEPSHOW and DAY OF THE DEAD.
Universal Television and Blumhouse Television are teaming up to produce a pilot for a supernatural thriller series based on an original idea from Lee Metzger, executive producer of the singing competition show The Voice.
I'm always glad to see the announcement of a project that combines the horror and western genres, and the latest such announcement is the news that New Regency has acquired the film rights to the upcoming young adult novel DEVILS UNTO DUST. Author Emma Berquist's debut novel, DEVILS UNTO DUST is described as being like "TRUE GRIT meets 28 DAYS LATER". That's a hell of a mixture, and the idea of Rooster Cogburn taking on a horde of zombies / infected people is quite appealing to me.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
