'Release The Hounds' Episode One: "This Halloween, horror is a reality as multi-channel network Collective Digital Studio (CDS) premieres a brand new horror game show, Release The Hounds, on CDS’s MetaCafe and BlackBoxTV on YouTube in a groundbreaking approach to bring a hit UK show to audiences worldwide.

Release The Hounds, produced by UK-based Gogglebox Entertainment, features three unsuspecting contestants who enter a forest at dusk in a quest to unlock chests full of prize money. Little do they know that in order to win big, they have to face the scariest challenges ever endured on TV.

To locate the keys to the chests, contestants must enter a field of crucified scarecrows, descend beneath the floorboards in a deserted cabin, and read bedtime stories in the nursery from hell. But the ultimate challenge for them all is to out-run a pack of hounds, trained to guard the cash. If they manage to escape, the money belongs to them. And if they don’t, the horror has just begun.

Filmed in a remote forest from dusk through the dead of night, Release The Hounds takes the game show concept to a frightening new level. With Show Host Reggie Yates as their only connection to the outside world, the contestants must progress through each horrific challenge by keeping their wits and working together.

The first episode of Release The Hounds premieres today on CDS’s Metacafe and on BlackBoxTV on YouTube."

First Details on Opening Night: "Tuesday Knight, star of “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master”, is returning to her horror roots twenty-five years later in a new short film entitled “Opening Night”.

Knight rose to fame playing Kristen Parker in the fourth installment of the famed Nightmare on Elm Street series in 1988. She has since gone on to have a successful career in television, movies, music and designing her own jewelry line.

“Seems just like yesterday when I got the role as Kristen in “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master,” Knight said. “I was running out of the New Line building so excited that I fell down their main staircase. But it didn’t matter, I was so excited to be starring in my first feature film.

A lot of people think that I have something against horror because most of my career has been in drama or comedy, but I actually love horror. So, when I got the call to do a cameo in Wes Craven’s “New Nightmare” I was so thrilled to go back and work with the people who made the original and the franchise what it is today.”

The new film, “Opening Night” is about a theatre company led by Victoria Lawson (played by Knight) who are prepping to perform a cursed play on the anniversary of a local massacre.

The project wrapped production earlier this month and will be released before the end of the year via producer Carlos Corral at Mindwarp Entertainment.

Dakota A. Thomas, whose previous short films include “Repent” and “Don’t Look Under the Bed”, is helming this project as writer/director.

The plan for the short film is to use it as a springboard to make a feature version."

Giffgaff’s Halloween Video: "Picture the scene. 150 people, an empty swimming pool and loads of fake blood and guts. Cue bloody hands flinging gore, guts and entrails at each other, all captured in a glorious high-definition video – it’s mobile network giffgaff’s latest offering to celebrate Halloween in a different way.

Run by its members, giffgaff is a different way of doing mobile, and being different takes guts. Inspired by the infamous and spectacularly fun La Tomatina Spanish tomato fight, giffgaff’s brave and battle-ready volunteers used fake blood and guts to create a bloody but entertaining mess.

Intestines whizz through the air like barbaric slingshots and dismembered eyeballs are hurled into the fray with the dramatic action caught on camera by directors Jonas & Francois (who've created music videos for Justice, Kanye West, Iggy Azalea, Madonna and many others).

The gory clash is set to ‘Walk of Shame,’ the new track from hot LA rock duo Deap Valley.

Celebrate Halloween with a difference this year… if you’ve got the #giffgaffguts."

Last Night, Tonight and Tomorrow” opens in a motel apartment in the Mexican border town of Metamoros, where shady hooker Vanessa (Jessika Johnson) has just extorted her latest John (George Avgoustis), threatening to contact his wife and clue her in to his “south of the border” adventures.

But after she collects her ill-gotten dollars and the angry man leaves, someone quietly breaks into Vanessa’s apartment and pours a gallon of acid into her bath while she is busy in another room. As Vanessa enters and prepares to enjoy a long soak, the intruder’s shadow approaches and pushes her face into the steaming water.

Back in the Midwestern United States, wealthy matriarch Dolores (Terri Partyka) has gathered her family for a bittersweet Thanksgiving reunion, at which she introduces her newfound biological son (Kevin Hartzman) to her adopted daughters, now grown and living lives of their own. Emotions run high as the family suspects a change of will is forthcoming but their petty squables are overshadowed by a more immediate danger: Someone is in the house, quietly killing each family member and hiding the bodies.

Meanwhile, Dolores—now heavily over medicated to alleviate the pain of her terminal cancer—begins behaving very strangely, hacking her son-in-law with a meat cleaver. Escorted to the serenity of her bedroom, she is visited first by Mark and then, after taking still more medication, by another, much less welcome caller.

This entry continues the series’ evolution into Giallo anthology and features several suspenseful moments of dread sure to complement the fun of Halloween and beyond."

George Pfau's Zombie Impressionist Oil Paintings: "These impressionist/pointillist oil paintings portray figures on the verge of recognition. Each painting is based on a scene in a zombie film in which figures are small and out of focus. The oil paint allows each figure to bleed into and intertwine with its surroundings. Each painting is accompanied by a high-resolution photograph in which these figures are magnified, emphasizing the blurry boundary that encircles each body. For me, the grotesque, oozing, blending qualities of oil paint are an apt medium for zombies and human bodies that are in-between, or out of control. The zombie film depicted is indicated in the title of each piece."
