SB19 Press Con Confirms CONCERT POSTPONEMENT; Laughs Over COVID19 Name SIMILARITY


How would somebody cope when their name is rather similar to the name of something that is currently both feared and disliked in the world?

SB19 also responded to comments regarding the similarity between their name and the COVID-19.

REBOOT of 1996 Horror Classic “SCREAM” Gets “READY OR NOT” Directors


There was a time when horror movies, particularly “slasher” films, followed a rote storytelling convention. Take a group of people, usually reckless air-headed teenagers, then set a killer loose at them and watch as their numbers get whittled down with death after death until a final survivor (likely a girl) either escapes or puts the murderous force down. The year 1996 saw Dimension Films release “Scream” directed by Wes Craven, which revisits spree killer films while featuring characters that are aware of the genre’s various conventions. “Scream” would receive three sequels and a TV spinoff. Meanwhile plans for a remake of the original have finally come to the development table.

They have been planning it since they announced the fact in October of last year. Their nuptials are so significant that the President and two of his predecessors are principal sponsors. It will be happening this Saturday. Or it would have if not for the dreaded COVID-19.
