Trailer for Bad Kids Go to Hell:  "Six private school high school kids find themselves stuck in detention on a frightfully dark and stormy Saturday afternoon. During their 8 hour incarceration, each of the six kids fall victim to a horrible "accident" until only one of them remains. As each of these spoiled rich kids bites the dust, the story takes on a series of humorous and frantic twists and turns. Is one of the kids secretly evening the school's social playing field? Or have the ghosts of prestigious Crestview Academy finally come to punish the school's worst (and seemingly untouchable) brats? One thing is for sure...Daddy's money can't save them now."

The film stars: Judd Nelson, Ben Browder, Cameron Deane Stewart, Ali Faulkner, Roger Edwards, Marc Donato, Augie Duke, Amanda Alch, Jeffrey Schmidt, and Chanel Ryan. Bad Kids Go to Hell will be released to theaters on December 7th.


Official Trailer for The Awakened: "Samantha Winston (Julianne Michelle) returns home after 14 years to unravel the truth about her mother's death. She suspects her father (John Savage) and seeks guidance and answers from her mother's close friend Lucas Drake (Steven Bauer), Harriet Bendi (Sally Kirkland), her newly discovered uncle Thomas (Edward Furlong), and befriends Liam Dawson (Bryan Dechart). Drake's business partner (Stelio Savante) is more than displeased and seeks to destroy Samantha's plans before the entire town is awakened."

Kill Me Now Theatrical Dates Announced: "Kill Me Now chronicles one unforgettable night in the lives of a ragtag group of small-town teens. It's a night that will prove equally unforgettable for the sinister Driller Killer (Brett Fancy – “EastEnders,” “Luther”), a deranged serial killer bent on ridding the world of vapidity and dumbassedness (Everyone Else). When he comes upon the kids' all-night graduation party--conveniently held at a cabin deep in the woods--he finds both in spades. Unfortunately, Mr. Killer is about to learnsomething crappy bumper stickers learned long ago: stupid people can be deadly in large numbers. Kill Me Now blends horror, comedy, depth and plain jackassery to form a brew so potent you won't know whether to laugh, scream, or think about, like, life and stuff. The movie features performances from a staggering array of the Internet's hottest up-and-coming comedians, writing from the guys behind “Those Aren't Muskets!” and, direction from a dude whose previous work includes hardcore, joint-smokin', Twista-havin', Kanye-featurin' rap videos, and at least one scene where a chick totally gets a drill to the brain. But it's funny!"

Kill Me Now will be available on digital download and on-demand in 2013, and in the meantime, will be released next month in select theaters nationwide. We have also provided theatrical dates below and to request a screening in your city, visit:

The Walking Dead Illustrated Poster Set: Artist Christian Petersen has created a set of Walking Dead-inspired posters: "Each print features scenes from an episode of the first season. Inspired by the episodes ‘Days Gone By’, ‘Guts’, and ‘Tell it to the Frogs’.

...This show has grown on me so much and inspired me not only artistically, but stylistically. I wanted to come up with a few pieces that bridge the gap between the graphic novels and tv show. My approach was to choose a monochromatic color palette, block out some key scenes, characters, or objects and cobble together a paneled illustration similar to a collage or storyboard. The continuation of a series of prints depends on the reaction to the work from fans. If people like the direction and requests come in, I'll take a chance and extend the line of designs."

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).
