"I love creepy, haunting stuff. I don't go for psycho movies really. But I love monsters. And scares that are more cerebral. I love practical effects that make those monsters seem more real on screen,” continued Slash. “When I read the script for ‘The Hell Within’ I knew it was the right project for my taste. It spoke to my horror sensibilities. And a story I know horror fans will dig as well.”

Press Release: "Dead Wait Productions announce the completion of principal photography for their new genre film The Dark Below. Award-winning genre director Douglas Schulze (Mimesis, Dark Fields) and Executive Producer Seth Willenson bring us a survival thriller that explores the fear of entrapment beneath a frozen lake.

The film stars screen veteran Veronica Cartwright (Alien, Witches of Eastwick) and Lauren Shafer (Mimesis) and boasts an authentic production value that took cast and crew into the depths of Michigan’s Great Lakes in the dead of winter.

Producers Schulze and Kurt Eli Mayry previously produced Dark Fields with the late David Carradine that was released domestically by e1 Entertainment. More recently Anchor Bay Entertainment / Starz released their film Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead featuring screen veteran Sid Haig. Mimesis, a thriller about horror fans forced to live a real life horror film has become a cult favorite and is now airing on Showtime networks after a successful video and pay cable release. Mimesis immediately attracted festival and fan attention thru exhibition at over 20 horror festivals worldwide including Shriekfest, New York Horror Fest and the prestigious La Samain Du Cinema Fantastique in France.

The producers are planning to introduce The Dark Below to audiences via the festival circuit before aligning with domestic and international distribution. Visit and follow the action on the official Facebook page at"


Vintage Tomorrows: "Steampunk started as a sub-genre of science fiction typified by a fascination with steam-powered machinery and alternative histories, with stories frequently set in Victorian England.

VINTAGE TOMORROWS examines the Steampunk movement's explosive growth, origins, and cultural significance, from its sci-fi beginnings into an aesthetic and DIY movement that influences art, fashion, design, and music globally. Through in-depth interviews with the writers and artists credited with galvanizing the movement, and the cultural historians and social scientists investigating the phenomenon, VINTAGE TOMORROWS poses the fundamental question: What does Steampunk tell us about history, community, and our complicated relationship with technology?

VINTAGE TOMORROWS features interviews and appearances from leading figures and experts across the spectrum of Steampunk artistic expression, including cyberpunk author William Gibson, author Bruce Sterling (The Difference Engine), Cherie Priest (Boneshaker), China Miéville (Perdido Street Station), Cory Doctorow (Makers), Gail Carriger (The Parasol Protectorate series), Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett (Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel), Ann and Jeff VanderMeer (Steampunk, The Steampunk Bible), Nisi Shawl (Everfair) and Phil and Kaja Foglio (Girl Genius), and founder of Steampunk Magazine Margaret 'Magpie' Killjoy.
