Feast your eyes this Valentine's Day on a livestream horror movie marathon featuring some of Scream Factory's cult classic films for free. Also in this round-up:  a new teaser for A&E's Damien, The Girl in the Photographs release details, a gallery of images from 6:66 PM, and release date / trailer for Nailed Down.

Love Is in the Scare Livestream: Press Release: "Have no fear, love is in the scare. This Valentine’s Day, ditch the roses and keep the box of chocolates for yourself while you watch Love Is in the Scare, a marathon of Scream Factory classics streaming free on Sunday, February 14th, from noon to midnight PT at loveisinthescare.com.

Brace yourself for 12 hours of heart-stopping shocks from seven terrifying films including the Shout! Factory TV premiere screenings of Beyond Darkness, Ghosthouse, Metamorphosis, Nomads, Class of 1984, Witchery and The Editor. The marathon event serves as a trip back to the early days of premium cable channels and their daylong presentations of classic horror.

“The idea of the retro-themed marathon was born naturally since many Scream Factory fans, including ourselves, who love older films grew up in the 80s watching such anticipated events on cable channels like HBO and Showtime,” explains Jeff Nelson, Senior Marketing Director, Scream Factory. “At the time, it was a rush to see several horror films with no commercials all at once…and when you made it through them all there was a sense of victory (and maybe some terrified nerves too).  Since those kind of stunts were so exciting we thought it would be fun to recreate one and take our fans back to a “1984”-era (right down to the vintage promos, bumpers and creative) where they too could relive the nostalgia or experience for the first time.”

Fans of Scream Factory and cult horror won’t want to miss these films streaming free! Join the conversation using the hashtag #LoveIsInTheScare while you watch.

Love Is in the Scare Film Synopses

Class of 1984

In Class of 1984, Andy Norris (Slaughterhouse Five's Perry King), an idealistic and naive music teacher who has moved into the Lincoln High community with his pregnant wife Diane. Appalled by the crime-infested school, Norris soon crosses sabers with its teenage kingpin, the shrewd and sadistic Peter Stegman (The White Shadow's Timothy Van Patten). With Norris setting his sights on reforming Stegman, the young miscreant declares war on his teacher, and the duo sets a fateful showdown into motion on the night of an important school orchestra performance.


A new address brings new frights as the immortal David Hasselhoff and The Exorcist’s Linda Blair turn up the terror in Witchery. When a terrible storm leaves a motley assortment of people stranded on an island resort, they soon find they have more to worry about than not packing rain gear! A horrible witch unleashes her wrath on the unwanted visitors – and no one is safe from her unquenchable thirst for death!


A group of visitors to a seemingly-deserted home find themselves tormented by demonic spirits – including one particularly freaky little girl and her creepy clown companion. Soon, our hapless heroes find themselves powerless to conquer the evil of the Ghosthouse – where death holds the mortgage and if you move in… there’ll be Hell to pay!


Lesley-Anne Down (Sphinx, Death Wish V) "gives a riveting... performance" (L.A. Weekly) and Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye, The November Man) is top-notch in "the most stylish supernatural-themed chiller... since Carrie" (Variety)! Also starring Adam Ant (Slam Dance), Mary Woronov (Death Race 2000) and Frank Doubleday (Escape from New York) and written and directed by John McTiernan (Predator, Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October), Nomads is a "chiller thriller [that's] brimming with menace and suspense" (Judith Crist)!

They creep. They kill... and no one knows who they are or where they came from. But when these rootless, demonic spirits descend on a determined doctor, all hell breaks loose. Bitten by a dying madman named Jean Pommier (Brosnan), Dr. Eileen Flax (Down) becomes the vessel for his turbulent and insane thoughts. Thrust into his last days, she is shocked to discover the existence of mysterious and murderous demons on a quest for destruction... and begins her own quest to somehow stop them before she joins Pommier in his horrifying fate! 

The Editor

A loving tribute to the gory and gruesome erotic horror of classic Italian Giallo cinema, The Editor spins the twisted tale of a once-prolific film editor who becomes the prime suspect in a series of murders haunting a seedy 1970s film studio. 

Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks) was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist Giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes. 


When his experiments in genetics are mocked by his colleagues, maverick scientist Dr. Peter Houseman takes extreme measures to prove that his untested anti-aging serum works. Injecting himself with his miracle cure, he soon experiences a terrifying change within himself that threatens not only the lives of those around him but also his own sanity. From cult cinema mainstay George Eastman, Metamorphosis proves that nightmares may change, but fear is forever! 

Beyond Darkness

When a man of God and his loving family move into a new house, they think they’ve found the perfect home…until they discover that their new digs were once the location where a coven of witches were burned at the stake! It’s only a matter of time before the radio starts blaring satanic chants and the cutlery takes on a mind of its own. Will the awakened evil in this house have its final revenge, or can a plucky priest fend off what lurks Beyond Darkness? This tale of terror comes from Claudio Fragasso, the director of Troll 2 (so you KNOW it’s good!).

“Damien” follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny -- that he is the Antichrist. Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world's most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien’s whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.

“Damien” is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios (“Homeland,” “Sons Of Anarchy”) for A&E Network. Glen Mazzara (“The Walking Dead,” “The Shield”) serves as writer and executive producer via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman (“Lights Out”), who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his company, Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield (“Queen of the South”) also serves as executive producer. Golden Globe® and BAFTA Award nominated director Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) directed and executive produces the first episode."


The Girl in the Photographs: Press Release: "Following its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto Int'l Film Festival, Vertical Entertainment will release The Girl in the Photographs in theaters on April 1st. Nick Simon's horror film starring Kal Penn, Claudia Lee, and Luke Baines, was Wes Craven's last credit before he passed.

In Nick Simon’s THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, Colleen’s life isn’t going anywhere. The small town check out girl with natural beauty is bored with her dead end job and annoyed by her apathetic boyfriend. This isn’t the life she wanted. In the midst of her turmoil, a pair of deranged serial killers begin leaving her photos of their mutilated victims.

Her chance to escape comes in the form of Peter Hemmings, a hipster celebrity photographer who has traveled back to his hometown of Spearfish, South Dakota, with a pack of models, intent on copying the killers’ intense and unapologetic artistry. When he learns Colleen is the killers’ muse, Peter resolves to make her his own and use her as the centerpiece of a photo campaign in Los Angeles.

But before Colleen can leave her old life behind, she must contend with the desires of her murderous stalkers who have chosen her last night in town to execute their most provocative work to date."


6:66 PM: Press Release: "Los Angeles, California: 6:66 PM is a co-production from Full Auto Films and Code 3 Films. Shooting on their latest production has recently completed, with Jim Klock (“Scream Queens”) at the helm. A former narcotics detective and now actor, Klock has directed several horror films, including Murder Eleven (2013) and Massacre on Aisle 12 (2015). Klock is reteaming with actress and producer Autumn Federici (Circle) on this film, which blends a horrifying tone with comedy elements. Chad Ridgely and Alexis Kelley also star in this supernatural feature, with several stills from the film available now!

6:66 PM begins with a hired television crew. They are in search of haunted locations and stories of the paranormal. Skeptics, they believe that their next location will house nothing unusual. But, they are wrong! An old home hosts the spirit of a serial killer and he is not finished killing. Now, these first-time paranormal investigators are at the mercy of a true dark heart.

Director Klock also stars in 6:66 PM as Daniel. Daniel’s terror can be seen in the film’s latest stills. And, Klock says of his experience on directing and starring in 6:66 PM, "the horror-comedy genre works well when you trust that the circumstances and characters are funny enough, all you have to do as a director/actor is embrace the ridiculousness of it all.” Some of that ridiculousness can be seen now, with these comedic shots, from 6:66 PM!

Official synopsis: “6:66 P.M. proves evil has an hour to kill as a reality TV crew's staged investigation into the paranormal becomes terrifyingly real. When the house they’re exploring turns out to really be haunted by the ghost of a serial killer, each crew member fights to stay alive and, more importantly, make their reality show a hit at any cost.”

Director: Jim Klock. Writers: Tommy McLaughlin and Chad Ridgely.

Director of Photography: Darrell Martinelli. Cast: Jim Klock, Chad Ridgely, and Autumn Federici.
