Meta: Coming attractions. Now with working links!

Next month, ANTSS will be celebrating its third anniversary and you're all invited to attend!

Long time readers may already know that this means we'll be running our annual tribute to frights and fantasy in the silent film era. The first year we called it "The Silent Scream Series." Then, "The Son of Silent Scream Series." This year you're all cordially invited to swing by "The House of Silent Scream Series."

This year, not only will I be doing my regular reviews of genre classics from the dawn of the film age, but I'm bring along a whole bunch of friends to lend a hand.

Guest bloggers and I will be sounding off about sexy robots, scandalous vamps, mad scientists, famous surrealists, secret societies, fantastic monsters, and more.

Do come. We're all so looking forward to your presence.

For those who want to play catch up, here's look at what we've done in the past:

Please have the Mrs as one of the guest commentators on a movie.. I know she doesn't like them, but I think the audience would enjoy her insights ..

Screamin' Sassy,

If all goes according to plan, you can expect to see my eternal beloved sound off on the Rene Clair's 1925 sci-fi silent short "Paris qui dort," known in English under the titles "At 3:25" and "The Crazy Ray."

I'm not trying to be coy about who will contribute to this years hootenanny. I just don't want folks who may have to pull out to feel any pressure.
