Blue Hole takes on New Jersey Urban Legend: Blue Hole is a short horror film project that is looking for support. The film will be directed by Erik Gardner (Mangler Reborn, Dreamtakers) and is based on a New Jersey urban legend:

"Blue Hole is a story about a couple that travels deep within the Pine Barrens of New Jersey to a vacation cabin. Upon arriving, they’re attacked by a madman who claims an eerie pond near the cabin called 'Blue Hole' can bring back the dead."

To support their project or for more information, visit their official Kickstarter page.

Supernatural Book Series "Luna" Announced: "In January 2012 a new series of werewolf-themed books will launch, co-created by John Ceallach and Randy J. Goodwin from ‘The Vampire Diaries’. The novelization will be written by Blake Northcott.

‘Luna’ is a supernatural action-adventure series about a U.S. Army doctor who specialises in exotic diseases. She returns home to Los Angeles after she is unknowingly infected by a mysterious virus while serving overseas.

The first book in the ‘Luna’ series, entitled ‘Welcome to Your New Life’, will be the basis for an upcoming television pilot that is currently in development. The TV series, moving forward in early 2012, is set in L.A., but could be filmed primarily in Vancouver, British Columbia."

World Premiere Screening of "Area 51 Confidential": "People from various walks of life find themselves held captive in a desolate area surrounding a secret government installation rumored to contain extraterrestrial life. With no knowledge of how they arrived there, they must sort out their differences and find a way out - before strange lurking creatures find them first.

Presented under the guise of a 'military training video for new hires at the facility known as Area 51', we follow the plight of a handful of individuals - a broadcast journalist, a documentarian, a teenage girl from Roswell, an army Colonel, and a man who had previously been thought "missing" for a number of years - as they awaken in the desert area surrounding Area 51."

The world premiere screening of Area 51 Confidential will take place at the The Sci Fi Center in Las Vegas in October. For more information on the event, visit:
