Walking-Dead-502-box*Updated with new photos* Following the conflict at Terminus during The Walking Dead Season 5 premiere, the show takes a different direction and introduces us to a new character in episode 2. Get a tease of Father Gabriel and what’s to come with these photos and preview video:

“Season Four of “The Walking Dead” ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate.

Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.

Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them…

After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost… Who do they become?”

We have more coverage of The Walking Dead Season 5 on the way. Until then, catch up on our recent coverage links:

Strangers – Episode 502 Synopsis: “With supplies running low and not knowing whether to trust the people around them, Rick leads a mission where the risk might not be worth the reward.”

Found-Footage-3dWe’re back with another edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes new details on Found Footage 3D and Mania, photos from Refuge and a poster from Fetish Factory, release dates announced for Skypemare, Soulmate, and The Inside, a trailer for When Black Birds Fly and Zombie Hood, and more:

New Details on Found Footage 3D: “…the producers of upcoming horror film Found Footage 3D announced the launch of their Indiegogo campaign to obtain additional funding for post-production and marketing expenses.

Produced by Kim Henkel, co-creator of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Found Footage 3D tells the story of a group of filmmakers who set out to make “the first 3D found-footage horror film,” but find themselves in a found-footage horror film when the evil entity from their movie escapes into their behind-the-scenes footage.

“What Scream did for slasher films, we aim to do for found footage,” says writer/director Steven DeGennaro. “Being the first found footage horror movie shot in 3D allows us to do things that no found footage movie or 3D movie has ever been able to do before.”

The Found Footage 3D team has set its goal at $35,000 on Indiegogo for post-production costs, adding 3D visual effects and festival entries. Full fan and rewards information can be seen on the Indiegogo campaign page.

Found Footage 3D is the first 3D found-footage horror film (think Blair Witch Project), providing a unique and fresh movie experience for horror junkies and the horror genre itself.

The film’s production team includes industry veterans Steven DeGennaro, Kim Henkel, Charles Mulford and Scott Weinberg.”

New Photos Revealed from Refuge: “Refuge which premieres in Los Angeles at Screamfest LA (October 18th) and Toronto at Toronto After Dark (October 22nd), [and] coming off of a win at Sydney’s Fantastic Planet Festival for Best Director, Andrew Robertson and his wife Lilly Kanso (Producer/Writer) bring the terror closer to home as they prepare to unleash Refuge on North American audiences.

Refuge centers around a family trying to survive in the ruins of a collapsed America in the wake of a catastrophic plague, struggling to rebuild their lives in a boarded up abandoned house while trying to maintain a sense of normalcy for their eight-year-old daughter ‘Birdie’ (Eva Grace Kellner of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) amidst a lawless world of roaming gangs and dwindling resources. The mother, father, daughter, and older neighbor do their best to survive on what little rations they can scavenge from the surrounding areas. One day, during a scavenging run, ‘Jack’ (Carter Roy of ABC’s “Castle”), comes across an injured man and offers him refuge in their home. With this new addition, the family soon finds that taking him in may have been a huge mistake. The dark and lush soundtrack, scored by famed Swedish duo Carbon Based Lifeforms makes the film all the more effectively disturbing.”

Fetish Factory Poster Released: “In the gritty, sexy and scary old school tradition of exploitation and grindhouse art comes the kick-ass poster for Blanc/Biehn Productions’ latest fright flick, “Fetish Factory.”

BBP commissioned Los Angeles based artist Aaron Kai to come up with a throwback concept and create artwork that would tell a story – using scenes from the film and building intrigue through visuals just like they did back in the 60s and 70s.

Aaron Kai’s meticulously executed, photorealistic film-inspired artwork has been featured globally from Hollywood to Tokyo to commemorate high-profile landmark events including Blade Runner: The Final Cut 25™ Anniversary, The Bette Davis Centennial, and the Jules Verne Film Festival. Prominent collectors of Kai’s original works include Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford, and Clint Eastwood.

“Fetish Factory” is written and directed by Staci Layne Wilson, based on a story by Lony Ruhmann. The plot centers on pin-up vixens vs. bloodthirsty zombies, and is set in post-apocalyptic Hollywood.

The film stars Carrie Keagan (“Reno 9-1-1!”), Chase Williamson (“John Dies at the End”), Jennifer Blanc (“Everly”, “Havenhurst”, “Hidden in the Woods”), Daniel Quinn (“Rubber”), Stephen Wastell (“Criminal Minds”), Jenimay Walker, (“Serpent’s Kiss”), Tristan Risk (“American Mary”), Emma Julia Jacobs (“Hitchcock”), Ruben Pla (“Big-Ass Spider”), Diane Ayala Goldner (“The Collector”), Jesse Merlin (“FDR: American Badass”), Benjamin Easterday (“Poseidon Rex”), Tom Ayers (“Bosch”), and Montreal-based alternative model and fetish superstar The Richard rounds out the cast.

Lony Ruhmann is executive producer, cinematography is by Steve Romano, and the original score is by Mars Homeworld and introduces new original songs by guitar superstars The Ventures.

Look for it in 2015.”

Actress Ellie Church of the grindhouse film, Time to Kill has also joined the production. Risk will play the role of Brooke and Church will play the role of Mel.

Mania is one of three features in Jessica Cameron’s triple feature cross-country extravaganza. In it, Risk will play the crazed lesbian lover of Church’s character Mel. It will mark her 2nd feature as a director from a script Higgins wrote. Desolation will be the 2nd feature film and directed by Ryan M. Andrews from a script he wrote. Risk has also signed on to star as the villain in Andrews’ movie. A feature length documentary titled Kill the Production Assitant, will chronicle the making of this very ambitious project.

Principal photography begins on November 3rd and they will be filming all three films while traveling cross-country in an RV! The filmmakers had a campaign on their website where fans helped decide which states to film in. The top states with the most pre-orders came down to California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Ohio, and Alabama.

Tristan Risk has this to say about Mania:

“As someone who self-identifies as queer, I’m also happy to have a story where the two protagonists are two women in love, and the struggles they try to overcome together. It’s a beautiful and dark story.”

Zombie Hood Trailer and Release Details: “The initial infection begins after the virus spreads through a nightclub and is quickly transmitted throughout the city. After a night of disturbances across the whole United Kingdom, the police and emergency services lose control of the situation, with hospitals overrun and the dead coming back to life to attack and devour the living. With the cities now the domain of the undead, the survivors flee the built up areas and take refuge in the countryside and small villages. Zombie Hood follows the story of a small group of survivors who are thrown together in the outskirts of Nottingham. Like Robin Hood and his merry men, the rag tag band look to Sherwood Forest for sanctuary, but soon find out that even the countryside isn’t a safe haven. With food and supplies in short demand, the group find themselves arguing over their plans for survival, which isn’t helped by Sam, a wayward teenager with a confused and dangerous personality.

BrinkVision releases the U.K. horror Zombie Hood in North America on VOD and Limited Edition DVD on October 21st! Zombie Hood has been called impressive, gory, odd-humored, and fun. The film is fragmented into parts, introducing characters skillfully into the chaos that is the post-apocalyse battleover of England.”

Nathaniel Screaming First Details: “It’s late at night. You’re on your way home and the streets are empty. You hear footsteps behind you. Before you can turn around, IT lunges at you, knocking you to the ground. Your heart races. You scream out for help and fight for your life. Finally, you come to eye-to-eye with your attacker…it’s a Zombie! No, that can’t be. Zombies aren’t real. At least they weren’t. Until today.

Barely escaping, you race home and dial 911. You’re put on hold. Emergency services must be overwhelmed. You flip on the TV to see how far the world has fallen into the apocalypse, but nothing has changed. No one seems to know about this…except you. It hasn’t spread yet. You still have a chance to get your loved ones to safety before all hell breaks loose.

But would they believe? Would the faith and love they have in you be outweighed by their disbelief in what seems impossible?

This was the spark that gave birth to Nathaniel Screaming. A film steeped in the long history of Zombies in film. Original in concept and execution, Nathaniel Screaming will no doubt appeal to the hardcore fans of this genre, but also to newcomers, with its unique approach to the zombie apocalypse.

Nathaniel Screaming is slated to go into production in December 2014 and for us to make the best product possible, we need your help. Right now, we have raised $40K but need another $40K to make this film right.”

Journals of Horror Release Details: “Journals of Horror: Found Footage on Paper Coming This Halloween.

In 1999, The Blair Witch Project ushered in a new sub-genre of horror called Found Footage. And while Blair Witch is credited for bringing attention to the first person POV, found footage style of film-making, there were films shot like it before 1999, going back as early to 1998’s The Last Broadcast and back even further (nearly two decades) with 1980’s Cannibal Holocaust, which is often cited as the first to utilize the now popular format. But even older films such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Town That Dreaded Sundown have the same gritty shade and documentary feel.

“I waited for someone else to do it,” West confessed. “It just seemed like a no-brainer for a horror anthology: to take the concept of found footage and transplant it to the page. Imagine finding a diary partially buried in the woods and reading a missing person’s account of a monster or dark force pursuing them. Now imagine an entire evidence locker filled with transcripts like this and you can start to picture where I am going with Journals of Horror.”

West and publisher Pleasant Storm Entertainment are thrilled with the roster of authors who have contributed to Journals of Horror. This anthology is filled with some of the hottest talent in the horror fiction genre: P.D. Cacek, Todd Keisling, Glenn Rolfe, Robin Dover, DS Ullery, Essel Pratt, Michael Thomas-Knight, John Ledger, Paul D. Marks, Sonja Thomas, Paula Cappa, Stuart Keane, Darryl Dawson, Crystal Leflar, Lori R. Lopez, Michael Seese, Jeff O’Brien, Matt Hayward, Joseph Ramshaw, Michael McGlade, DJ Tyrer, Wesley Thomas, Regina West, Evan Purcell, Robert McGough, Erik Gustafson, Christopher Alan Broadstone and Robert Holt. West himself plans a contribution.

Journals of Horror: Found Fiction will be released on Kindle on 10-31-14, with a paperback edition to follow before Christmas. You can [also] pre-order a copy.”

When Black Birds Fly Trailer: “Heaven is a beautiful, clean suburban paradise. Every block is populated by lush trees and lovely row homes. People are free to roam and do whatever they please, as long as they follow one simple rule: DO NOT communicate with “The Evil One” that dwells on the other side of a giant wall that circles the town, which is under 24 hour surveillance by a team of soldiers wearing gas masks. The ruler of the town is a man named Caine, who plasters images of himself all around, insisting that his citizens trust and love him. A small child becomes obsessed with the seemingly increasing flocks of black birds that populate the town. One day after chasing one he discovers a talking kitten with a broken leg, who begs Marius and his classmate Eden to crawl through a hole in the wall to help her. The kids decide to do it and she repays them by introducing them to a brightly colored fruit that grows wildly on the other side of the wall. After consuming it the kitten brings them to meet the Evil One, who attempts to teach them the forbidden knowledge that Caine is hiding from them all.”

Vegan Teenage Zombie Huntress Release Details: “In this hilarious, action-packed, girl-powered thriller, Clarissa and Cokie go from a failed attempt at prom night feminist activism to being in a fight for their lives.

A mashup of pop culture hits like Daria, Mean Girls, and Shaun of the Dead. Vegan Teenage Zombie Huntress will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end.”

TMNT-SewerSlashers-box-02They live in the sewers, have insatiable appetites, and are highly skilled with an array of weapons. From a distance, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seem like antagonists from a fright flick, but a closer look proves otherwise. A toy tinkerer, however, recently reimagined the beloved batch of pizza eaters as iconic horror movie villains who hunger for murder rather than a steamy slice of pepperoni and cheese.

In the 1990’s, Playmate released a plethora of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures that displayed the half-shell ninjas in many different outfits—from a samurai’s armor to an astronaut’s spacesuit.

Dan Polydoris of Chicago Toy Collector took advantage of the eclectic TMNT action figure attire, borrowing items from various figures to build four new Ninja Turtles that imitate the looks of Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, and Michael Myers. Dubbed “Sewer Slashin’ TMNT”, we have a look at the items and their specs below (via Chicago Toy Collector):

Donny Krueger:

  • Undercover Don’s hat
  • Punker Don’s face and legs
  • Star Trek Turtle’s body and arms
  • Robotic Bebop’s glove”

TMNT-SewerSlashers-02

Mikey Myers:

  • Undercover Don’s body and arms
  • Star Trek Raph’s head
  • Make My Day Leo’s crotch
  • Rappin’ Mike’s legs
  • Robotic Bebop’s sword”

TMNT-SewerSlashers-03

Raph Voorhees:

  • Casy Jones’ mask
  • Somebody’s head (I can’t remember at this point)
  • Road Racin’ Mike’s body and arms
  • Make My Day Leo’s legs
  • Some weapon that I can’t remember”

TMNT-SewerSlashers-04

Leatherface Leo:

  • Crazy Clownin’ Mike’s body
  • Make My Day Leo’s arms
  • Slapshot Leo’s head
  • Star Trek Turtle’s crotch
  • Casey Jones’ legs
  • Body Slammin’ Mike’s cape
  • Killer Bee’s chainsaw”

Scooby-horror-box-05Like, zoinks! Images of Scooby-Doo and the rest of the Mystery Inc. members could be collected like never before. Over the past months, we’ve shared Travis Falligant’s depictions of the Great Dane and the gang taking on horror icons ranging from Freddy Krueger to Dr. Giggles, and now Travis has launched an Indiegogo campaign to get those memorable moments printed in a limited edition “Lost Mysteries” art book.

Travis Falligant has teamed up with Bloody Disgusting and Indiegogo with his recently launched “Lost Mysteries” art book. The fundraising goal is $25,000. If that amount is reached, Travis’ well-received twists on the vintage cartoon classic will be collected and published in a hardcover, full-color, 6″ by 9″ book, complete with new horror-themed adventures that would mix the Mystery Machine riders with characters from Carrie, The Lost Boys, The Shining, and more.

Only 300 copies of the art book would be published, with Travis planning to never sell his Scooby-Doo images in any form again. To learn more about the “Lost Mysteries” art book fundraising campaign, visit:

From Teen Wolf (1985) to the Scream series, Travis pays homage to the horror genre through posters, T-shirts and comic book panels that put new spins on old favorites. We’ve compiled his “Lost Mysteries” images below:

Carrie2-TheRage-boxHigh school can be hell, and Stephen King’s 1974 novel Carrie is a prime example of teenagers crossing a line with their cruelty… only to find out too late that they messed with the wrong person. The folks at Scream Factory are heading back to school with their recent announcement that next spring they will release on Blu-ray the 2002 TV film Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2, the sequel to Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation.

From Scream Factory: “Our month-long “Shocktober” celebration continues with two more films to reveal: CARRIE – the 2002 TV-movie remake of Stephen King’s timeless tale of telekinetic revenge which stars Angela Bettis – and THE RAGE: CARRIE II – the 1999 theatrical sequel to Brian DePalma’s original 1976 masterpiece and stars Amy Irving – will make their debut on the Blu-ray format next Spring as a double-feature.

There are no details on extras at this time (if any are planned) and they will be announced sometime next year, along with a confirmed street date.

On a relevant side note (and in case you were wondering): We did try to acquire the Sissy Spacek classic last year in the hopes of doing a “Collector’s Edition” version and a new transfer but it did not pan out for various reasons. We can’t get them all.

We still have more films to announce in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned this month here on our page to be the first to see them!”

Carrie (2002) synopsis (via Amazon.com):

“Everyone has a breaking point. Pray that Carrie White doesn’t reach hers. Angela Bettis (Girl, Interrupted) stars in this bone-chilling update of Stephen King’s legendary tale of horror and retribution, featuring eye-popping special effects and a shocking, all-new twist ending! Carrie White (Bettis) is a lonely, awkward teenage girl who just doesn’t fit in. At school, she endures her classmates’ constant ridicule, and at home she suffers endless psychological torture at the hands of her fanatically religious mother (Patricia Clarkson, “Six Feet Under”). But Carrie has a secret. She’s been cursed with the terrifying power of telekinesis. And when her tormentors commit an act of unforgivably cruel humiliation at the prom, they’ll soon learn a deadly lesson: If you mess with fire, you will get burned!”

The Rage: Carrie 2 synopsis (via Amazon.com):

“Welcome to Bates High School. The lesson for today: stay on Rachel Lang’s good side because this outcast teen has a fiery temper that can’t be controlled! Joining her in the halls are Jason London (Dazed and Confused), Dylan Bruno (Saving Private Ryan), J. Smith-Cameron (In & Out), Zachery Ty Bryan ( Home Improvement ) and Amy Irving (Carrie) for an explosion of supernatural violence (Variety) that will keep you on the edge of your seat to the blazing, bloody end!

TwinPeaksEntireMystery-boxEarlier this month, Showtime revealed they are resurrecting Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks in a limited series due out in 2016, but if you’ve ever wondered what happened to the residents of Twin Peaks, Washington after they went off the air, you might be equally excited to hear that co-creator Frost is writing a novel due out in late 2015 that will explore the lives of Twin Peaks citizens over the past nearly 25 years.

Official press release via Geeked Out Nation: “(New York—October 16, 2014) Bob Miller, Flatiron Books president and publisher, announced today that the Macmillan division will publish THE SECRET LIVES OF TWIN PEAKS, a novel that reveals what has happened to the people of that iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago and offers a deeper glimpse into the central mystery that was only touched on by the original series. The book is written by New York Times bestselling author Mark Frost, cocreator and executive producer of the series with David Lynch. Frost will co-write and executive produce with Lynch the upcoming highly anticipated SHOWTIME® sequel, a limited series which was announced last week to air in 2016. THE SECRET LIVES OF TWIN PEAKS will be published in advance of the SHOWTIME series, on sale in late 2015, and was sold in an exclusive by Ed Victor of Ed Victor, Ltd. to Miller, with editorial director Colin Dickerman editing.

THE SECRET LIVES OF TWIN PEAKS has also been picked up all over the world. In the UK, Pan Macmillan will publish, Finnish rights sold to Otava, Mondadori will publish in Italy, in Brazil, rights were sold to Companhia das Letras, and Kiepenheuer & Witsch are the German publishers.

Of the acquisition, Mark Frost said: “Bob Miller and I have enjoyed a fantastic fifteen year relationship in publishing. This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life, for old fans and new. I couldn’t be more thrilled.

About: Macmillan Macmillan Publishers is a global trade publishing company, owned by Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck, with imprints in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, and around the world. U.S. publishers include Farrar, Straus and Giroux; Flatir.”

Saw-box“He doesn’t want us to cut through our chains, he wants us to cut through our feet.” Almost ten years ago, Jigsaw forced Dr. Gordon and Adam to make a twisted choice in James Wan’s Saw. This Halloween, filmgoers can relive Jigsaw’s macabre morals on the big screen with the horror movie’s theatrical re-release. Marking the upcoming event is another poster featuring the dreaded bear trap headgear.

Lionsgate is brining Saw back to theaters for one week only beginning on October 30th at 10:00pm. Below, we have a look at the new poster showcasing Shawnee Smith’s Amanda Young wearing the dreaded reverse bear trap. One new poster will be unveiled each week leading up to Saw’s theatrical re-release, so stay tuned for more creepy, celebratory artwork.

“With a dead body lying between them, two men wake up in the secure lair of a serial killer who’s been nicknamed “Jigsaw”. The men must follow various rules and objectives if they wish to survive and win the deadly game set for them.”

Directed by James Wan off a screenplay by Leigh Whannell, Saw stars Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Monica Potter, Michael Emerson, Ken Leung, Tobin Bell and Leigh Whannell.
