[New Bites] Rare ‘American Werewolf in London’ Storyboards, New One Sheets For ‘The Thing’ and ‘Afraid of the Dark’, NY ‘Shining’ Screening Update

Website IMPAwards posted two new one sheets, the first being a Russian quad for Universal Pictures’ The Thing prequel, which hits theaters October 14. And while already released, we thought this new one sheet for Troy Nixey’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark was pretty badass. Dig on ‘em both inside.

I hate to burst your bubble, but those of you in New York will NOT be seeing a special uncut screening of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, so says website Daily Dead. “It has come to our attention the print of the film we will be showing does not in fact have the two-minute final scene that Mr. Kubrick cut following the film’s initial screenings. The version of ‘The Shining’ screening at Eastman House will be the 142-minute extended U.S. version that includes footage Mr. Kubrick subsequently cut from the European release.” BOOOOOOOOO HISSSSSSS.

Fantastic Fest attendees were treated to an extra special event over the weekend: they had the chance to view a pristine 35mm copy of John Landis’ horror comedy classic An American Werewolf in London with acclaimed special effects master, Rick Baker, in attendance. Post mortem, website Badass Digest scored a series of rare storyboards featuring the infamous transformation David Kessler (played by David Naughton) goes through.
