The Closet, Alien & other DVD updates

Bits ‘n Bloody Pieces is a quick look at stuff we might have missed, viral-related promotions or items that do not necessarily warrant their own news item.

• Robert Prescott is back, posting yet another press clipping on Sidney Prescott’s Facebook page, further building the viral mystery around Scream 4. The latest snippet looks like a preview for Stab, starring Tori Spelling playing…Sidney Prescott.

• The Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman talked to G4 about the upcoming video game based on his hit comic series and television show.

“With the episodic nature of how they make the game, they can make a level and release a level, then make another level and release that level, so the game should come out in pretty rapid succession because of that … You’ll be playing as characters from The Walking Dead for sure, and different levels you’ll play as different people, so we’ll see.”
