Were talking The Bye Bye Man, the upcoming movie based on the story “The Bridge to Body Island” that appears in Robert Schneck’s The President’s Vampire: Strange-but-True Tales of the United States of America. The non-fiction story revolves around three Wisconsin college students who experience a series of terrifying events. The movie is being directed by Stacy Title and produced by Trevor Macy for Intrepid Pictures. It is set to start filming in November in Cleveland, according to Scene. Doug Jones (best known for his roles in Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth), Douglas Smith, Cressida Bonas, and Lucien Laviscount have signed on to star in the horror-thriller, according to Variety. This is the first of two movies set to be made based on books published by Anomalist Books. Unfortunately, the option on a TV series based on Budd Hopkins autobiography, Art, Life and UFOs, did not materialize. Any interested parties should contact Anomalist Books to option this book or any of our other titles.

Last month, Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit used one of our books for a little political commentary. He wrote: “FROM BUSH AS HITLER TO BUSH AS DRACULA? The President’s Vampire: Strange-but-True Tales of the United States of America. Okay, that’s not really what it’s about.” Not even close, Glenn. If you had noticed the possessive, “Cheney as Dracula” would have been closer to the mark. Next time, you should read the book. The President’s Vampire was our first title; you’ll be hearing a lot more about it soon.
