Blood Moon: Press Release: "Los Angeles, August 4 - Referee the ultimate showdown between gunslinger and lycanthrope when acclaimed western-horror Blood Moon hits DVD and Digital September 1 from Uncork’d Entertainment.

The old west howls when a town is overtaken by skinwalkers. Knowing they’ve got to combine forces if they want to survive the night, the passengers of a stagecoach unite with a heroic gunslinger and a couple of outlaws to battle the beastly enemy under the blood moon.

Only the second ever western to be filmed in the UK, the award-winning film stars The Woman in Black’s Shaun Dooley, George Blagden (TVs Vikings), Anna Skellern (The Descent II) and Corey Johnson (Captain Phillips). Jeremy Wooding directs from an Alan Wightman script.

A festival favorite (Blood Moon premiered at FrightFest and has since gone on to play in no less than another half-a-dozen high-profile film festivals), Blood Moon is both a unique twist on the werewolf film and a riveting update on the classic western."


Dagon Kickstarter: "Based on the story of cult writer, H.P. Lovecraft, DAGON is a Claymation film that recreates, with humor and extravagance, the supernatural and frightening scenes of the American writer within the typical aesthetics of an ‘80s action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger: Cthulhu meets Predator."

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. 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).
