Terror Bytes: Horror news from around the web

* The limited edition vinyl release of FRANKENWEENIE UNLEASHED features songs by Karen O, Robert Smith, Winona Ryder and Neon Trees. Because why the hell not?

* SHARON SMYTH LENTZ, who played Sarah Collins on the original DARK SHADOWS, will be a guest on Cloverleaf Radio at 6 p.m. EST on Sept. 20.

* MARC ANDREYKO, the writer of DARK SHADOWS YEAR ONE (and lots of other stuff) is the new writer of BATWOMAN for DC Comics. For those of you joining us late, this is a much more complicated situation than you might think.

* Halloween recipe: "Cake Ball Brains Oozing Cherry Blood," via HUNGRY HAPPENINGS.

* CLIVE BARKER has finished writing THE SCARLET GOSPELS. The novel will pit the hero of THE LAST ILLUSION against the villain of THE HELLBOUND HEART. Barker had this to say on his Facebook page:
"I thought you might like to know that THE SCARLET GOSPELS, a large novel which sets Harry D’Amour against the Hell Priest Pinhead, is finished, and has been delivered to my agent. I don’t yet have a publication date for it, but as soon as I do you’ll be the first to know. I won’t say anything about the narrative except this: it’s a HORROR NOVEL with the graphic violence and perverse eroticism of the most intense tales from the Books Of Blood. Please feel free to share this news with any friends who might have been wondering about the book: THE SCARLET GOSPELS ARE FINISHED."

* Speaking of long-awated novels, DOCTOR SLEEP, STEPHEN KING's sequel to THE SHINING, is available for pre-order on Amazon. It will hit stores Sept. 24.

* The soundtrack to WES CRAVEN's 1972 film THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT is coming out on vinyl ... and cassette?
