Horror Stars on Twitter!

Any Twitterers (Tweeters?) out there? For those who have been living under a rock, Twitter is a somewhat new service sweeping the nation where you answer the simple question, throughout your day, 'What are you doing?'. It serves as a constantly changing status update/away message of sorts where you let people know what you're doing whenever you want to let people know what you're doing. Now I normally probably wouldn't care for this type of thing, but one of the cool things about Twitter, unlike Facebook or MySpace, is that the celebs out there have really taken to it. It's a nice little way to keep in touch with all your favorite celebrities and it was for this reason that I initially joined. I have of course gone on to become a bit addicted to it, as happens with most of these types of things, but that's a different story for a different day.

Being that a lot of folks from the horror community are on Twitter, I thought it'd be cool to let you guys know about the ones I know about and maybe you can let me know of the ones you know of. I can guarantee you that all of these (with perhaps the exception of one) are 100% real. If you want to follow any of these people, simply click the links below. If you don't yet have Twitter, CLICK HERE to sign up. It'll take just a second, you don't need to create any kind of profile, and if you want to just keep up to date on some of your favorite celebs lives and never post a single thing, you can do so, so there's no reason not to join!

I'm hardly a horror star but before I get into it, here is the link to my Twitter account, where you can follow me :

Johnny Boots

That serves as the Freddy In Space Twitter account as well as my personal account, where I always "tweet" links to new posts I make on here and also talk about stuff from my personal life. In the future I will even be having exclusive giveaways and things of that nature on there that only my Twitter followers will know about, so it would behoove you to become a follower!

My girlfriend also just created an account, so follow her too if you please!

Jennie Boots

And now, onto the real stars!

Elizabeth Banks - Star of Slither, The Uninvited, and Zack & Miri Make a Porno.

Clive Barker - Don't think you need me to tell you who that is.

Diablo Cody - Writer of Juno and the upcoming Jennifer's Body.

Sybil Danning - Star of The Howling 2, Rob Zombie's Halloween, and Zombie's Grindhouse trailer Werewolf Women of the SS.

Mike Dougherty - Writer of Urban Legends : Bloody Mary and writer/director of the hotly anticipated (and finally coming out soon) Trick 'r Treat.

Rodney Eastman - Joey Crusel from Elm Street 3 & 4.

Nathan Fillion - Star of Slither.

Adam Green - Writer/director of Hatchet.

James Gunn - Writer of Dawn of the Dead '04 and writer/director of Slither.

Jackie Earle Haley - The new Freddy Krueger!

Lloyd Kaufman - Founder/owner of Troma.

Joe Lynch - Director of Wrong Turn 2.

Teri McMinn - Pam from Texas Chainsaw Massacre '74.

Derek Mears - Jason Voorhees 2009.

Michael Stephenson - Joshua Waits from Troll 2 and writer/director of the upcoming Troll 2 documentary, Best Worst Movie.

Danny Trejo - Uber badass from Halloween '07, From Dusk Till Dawn, Devil's Rejects, and tons more.

Toby Wilkins - Director of Splinter and The Grudge 3.

Rob Zombie - Again, don't need to tell ya who that is.

Sheri Moon Zombie - This is the only one that i'm not 100% sure on. It seems like it's really her but I know for sure that the above Rob Zombie account is his real one and he's not a follower of this account, so that's a bit fishy. This one remains unconfirmed for now.

If any of you guys know of any other horror stars on Twitter, leave a comment and let me know!

Clive Barker's on Twitter, eh?

That's one man's brain I'd love to get inside of.

Johnny said...

Well Twitter's a good place to get inside his brain a little bit cause he posts a shit ton on there!

Zacery Nova said...

I will never join Twitter, it's such a waste of time!

Johnny said...

It seems you and I disagree on just about every topic, Zac. It's a wonder we even get along! ;)

On a side note, I had many friends who said the same thing about Facebook and are now all over that sumbitch.

Zacery Nova said...

PS: I kind of hoped that SMZ, Rob & Sybil Danning were too cool for Twitter - I went on her account & I don't want to know that a cool lady like that uses the word "LOL". Ugh!

The Frog Queen said...

I agree....although the list is impressive.... I would love to get inside Clive Barker's brain!!!

Off to update who I am following in Twitter :)
