Watch Three Blu-ray Clips and Trailer for The Binding: "An unsettling spiritual shocker, The Binding shows the darker side of devotion when a religious family’s patriarch begins receiving visions of bloodshed. Debuting on Blu-ray and DVD August 2nd, 2016 from Scream Factory, this acclaimed film will feature a host of extras including over 20 minutes of deleted scenes, cast interviews with Amy Gumenick, Josh Heisler, and Leon Russom, a feature-length commentary track with writer and director Gus Krieger, and The Binding’s original teaser trailer."


A Look at Fractured Scary Tales #2 Cover Artwork and Preview Pages: "Do titles like “Planet of the Were-Apes”, “Snow White & the 7 Deadly Sins”, “Undead Poets Society”, and “Maltese Frankenstein” make you chuckle with ghoulish delight?

Then it’s time to grab an issue or two of Fractured Scary Tales, the dementedly different horror anthology that’s been described as a cross between Robot Chicken and Tales from the Crypt.

Two Spooktackular issues are available now. Each 40-page comic mag is jam-packed with scary parodies of classic movies with an ironic twist. Featuring the work of talented artists from around the world, this is one comic-mag you won’t want to miss!

Rated PG- Pretty Gruesome, some content may be too intense for all readers."

    About the Author - Tamika Jones

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
