Daily Horror Briefing: Barker, Snipes and Barack Obama   

February 1, 2008 Three tidbits on Wesley Snipes, Barack Obama and a new Clive Barker film.

"Blade" star Wesley Snipes was acquitted in a criminal tax case that should have tax dodgers jumping for joy, but he was convicted in misdemeanor counts of failing to file a tax returns. This means maybe a return to "Blade"? His next film, "Gallow Walker", is in the can but was waiting distribution. ... Barack Obama attacked horror films during Thursday night's debate with Hillary Clinton, complaining that horror movie trailers appear during "American Idol," but wasn't specific about what he'd do to stop them. ... Variety reports that Matador Pictures and Midnight Picture Show are teaming to bring horror author Clive Barker's Books of Blood series to theaters. Sophie Ward and Jonas Armstrong will star in the horror movie being directed by John Harrison (Tales From the Darkside: The Movie) from a screenplay he co-wrote with Darin Silverman.
