He tells you all about it in a riveting column on his popular movie Web site. Read it here. “I was 2 pills from death,” he writes after suffering a severe allergic reaction. Leave it to Knowles to leave the emergency room and head right to a screening at the wonderful Alamo South. Tireless.

All kidding aside, here’s hoping Harry feels better. Take two hits of movie-popcorn butter and blog to us in the morning.
