Paranormal investigators Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman spend 72 hours in the home of New Orleans' most gruesome murder. Just upstairs from a voodoo shop known for honing spiritual energy, the Rampart Street Murder House was famously haunted for decades. Unexplainable footsteps, darting shadows, and the apparition of a little boy all frightened previous tenants, but just after Hurricane Katrina, the dark crime inside made national news. On the tenth anniversary of the murder of Addie Hall by her boyfriend Zack Bowen, Nick and Katrina return to the scene of the crime to find what spirits remain after the horrific events at the home.

No stone goes unturned for Nick and Katrina, who believe that the longer they stay confined in a haunted location, the more spirits will communicate with them."
Capture Kill Release Trailer Revealed: Press Release: "Los Angeles, CA - Midnight Releasing has announced the March 7th Digital HD and MOD premiere of Capture Kill Release. Co-directors Nick McAnulty and Brian Allan Stewart deliver a romantic bloodbath that blends the true horrors of the Barbie and Ken Killers with the tropes of found footage, to stomach-curling effect. Capture Kill Release will be available to rent or own beginning March 7th on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, XBox, FlixFling and more.
Capture Kill Release has been a hit with critics and audiences since the world premiere at the Sunscreen Film Festival. The film has screened at genre fests around the world, sending chills through crowds at Shriekfest, Splat!, the Bram Stoker International Film Festival, HorrorQuest, Blood in the Snow, Fright Night Film Fest and many others over the past year.
Leading lady Jennifer Fraser makes her debut in Capture Kill Release as the unhinged wife with awards for Best Newcomer (Blood in the Snow) and Best Actress (Louisville Fright Night, HorrorQuest). HorrorMovies.ca hailed the film, singling out her performance as "utterly compelling" and "pretty much the female Patrick Bateman". Co-directors McAnulty and Stewart took two awards (Shriekfest, HorrorQuest) and two nominations (British Horror Film Festival, Torremolinos) for Best Feature Film, with a Best Actor win for Farhang Ghajar as the devoted yet reluctant husband (HorrorQuest) and Jon Gates (Louisville Fright Night) for his turn as an acquaintance who gets too close to the lovebirds for his own good.
A young married couple documents their descent down the rabbit hole as they seek to fulfill one of their darkest desires: kill a stranger and film it for posterity. Strain and second thoughts pull at their devotion to each other as they carefully plot out a heinous crime for the sake of curiosity. While they may have carefully thought out every small step and detail of getting away with murder, nothing can prepare them with the guilt and the weight of moving on in the aftermath. Shot in a documentary style from the perspective of the couple's camera, the film follows unflinching as they document their moral decay for the sake of "art".
The MOD physical release of Capture Kill Release will be available exclusively from Amazon.com."

The LITTLE NIGHTMARES video game is scheduled to hit PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Steam® platforms on April 28th, 2017 and, to tie-in with the release, Titan Comics’ LITTLE NIGHTMARES Issue #1 hits stores in May.

This four-issue miniseries delightfully connects to the deranged video game, which follows Six, a little girl, who tumbles into a den of ravenous creatures beneath The Maw – a grim feeding trough for the swollen, corrupted souls of the world. A place where excess is encouraged and dark secrets kept far out of sight.
“As an entertainment company our vision is to go beyond our games and use several formats such as comic books to tell great stories. With these comics, fans will be able to dive deeper into the vast universe of Little Nightmares and learn more about events connected to the game and beyond,” said Hervé Hoerdt – Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
LITTLE NIGHTMARES further expands the strong relationship between Titan Comics’ and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and adds to the portfolio of successful comics based on gaming properties Dark Souls™ and the upcoming TEKKEN™.
Titan Comics’ LITTLE NIGHTMARES Issue #1 is written by Dan Watters (Assassin’s Creed: Uprising) and Alex Paknadel (Assassin’s Creed: Uprising) with art by Aaron Alexovich (Heart Shaped Skull).
Titan Comics’ LITTLE NIGHTMARES will be available to order from Diamond PREVIEWS catalogue. The LITTLE NIGHTMARES video game, will release on April, 28th in digital and physical format on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC."
