Yesterday, approximately 75 striking horror screenwriters gathered outside the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank in honor of the Writers Guild of America strike, which began three weeks ago. It was Scott Kosar (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, The Machinist) who along with Adam Gierasch and Jace Anderson (Mother of Tears), Hans Rodionoff (The Lost Boys 2), Evan Katz (Pop Skull) and Stephen Susco (The Grudge series) organized the rally.

“This affects everybody, whether you’re a horror fan or romantic comedy fan, anything,” one writer explained. “The [material] can dry up unless this ends.” Another writer added, “Television is getting hit first, then so will feature films. There’s no question about it, there will be a trickle down effect – people want their horror and by next Halloween those who want their holiday genre films may not get as many as they have seen [in past years].”
