For a director who hasn’t made a film for seven years (2010’s The Ward) John Carpenter has kept incredibly busy of late. For starters, Carpenter entered the world of comics with the highly praised Asylum, which he co-created with his wife Sandy King. This month sees Volume 3 of the comic series, another of the partnerships ghoulish projects, Tales for a Halloween Night. And lo and behold, a new Halloween film is on its way next year to mark 40 years since the classic original.
As any horror fan worth their salt will tell you over in England we’ve been spoiled because in theory we have had two HorrorCon‘s in one year. The 2016 edition which presented us with the likes of Kane Hodder, Doug Bradley, David McNaughton and Linnea Quigley rolled around last July, and this, the 3rd edition of England’s premier horror event was held earlier this month in Sheffield, England.
HorrorCon UK is back with a bang for all you gorehounds over in England next month; and this third edition, which will once again take place at the Magna Science Adventure Centre (on Sheffield Road in Rotherham), will be dedicated to all things macabre and looks set to be the best yet. Hold on to your machetes and your clown costumes because HorrorCon UK has secured the one and only Sid Haig as a guest this year, which is so awesome we’ll say it again… Sid Haig is coming to the UK!
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".
