You can now learn how studioADI's practical effects in Harbinger Down (starring Lance Henriksen) were lovingly created in Christopher Cooksey's new book about the making of the 2015 horror film. Also in today's Horror Highlights: Blu-ray and DVD release details for Down a Dark Hall, co-starring Uma Thurman, and the impressive lineup of guests at this year's New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival.

New Book About the Making of Harbinger Down: "Take a pictorial journey through the production of Harbinger Down, the film that set out to prove that audiences still prefer practical effects creatures over CGI. After finding their animatronic creations left on the cutting room floor one too many times in favor of digitally animated monsters and spurred on by the outcry of movie fans everywhere to keep it real, studioADI co-founders Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. decided to take matters into their own hands. The result was the #1 highest funded Kickstarter for a sci-fi/horror movie in history. Now, you can take a look behind the scenes of this unprecedented coming together of movie fans, filmmakers, and movie stars like Lance Henriksen, as they put forth their passion, experience, and can do spirit, to create what was not just a movie but a once in a lifetime event.

Perfect for aspiring filmmakers and sci-fi/horror fans, alike."

    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).
