The Bazaar of Bad Dreams: A new collection of short stories from Stephen King, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams will debut on November 3rd:

"Unveiled today exclusively at Walmart, famed horror writer Stephen King has given his fans early access to the foreword of his new thriller “Bazaar of Bad Dreams” and released the audio recording of a look at the black magic that is his writing process all on Walmart’s corporate blog:

Getting people in the spirit for Halloween, this free-to-read post gets King readers prepped for his upcoming collection of short stories, available Nov. 3rd. To celebrate, Walmart is rolling back the price on "Bazaar" by 40%, and will have the rest of the King collection on rollback as well.

Walmart also has exclusive access to audio of Stephen King reading the foreword:"

Synopsis: "A master storyteller at his best—the O. Henry Prize winner Stephen King delivers a generous collection of stories, several of them brand-new, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story.

Since his first collection, Nightshift, published thirty-five years ago, Stephen King has dazzled readers with his genius as a writer of short fiction. In this new collection he assembles, for the first time, recent stories that have never been published in a book. He introduces each with a passage about its origins or his motivations for writing it.

There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. “Afterlife” is about a man who died of colon cancer and keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers—the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in “Obits;” the old judge in “The Dune” who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names that were written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In “Morality,” King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil’s pact they can win.”


Apparition and Intrusion: Press Release: "SGL Entertainment is pleased to announce that they have released both Apparition and Intrusion on Blu-ray and DVD, and just in time for Halloween. These two Killer horror movies will soon become cult classics, so own them today, and enjoy a Double Feature for Halloween.

APPARITION: Every town has one. The place you warn your kids about, the place where unexplained things happen, the place that's haunted. This east Texas town is no different. Southbrook hospital sits empty and has been that way since the riot in 1986. With the sale of the property pending, the buyers want peace of mind. Enter Eradication, Inc. Damon (Josh Pack), Jared (Joe Moore), Rowan (Eva Marcus), Kristin (Survivor's Natalie Bolton) and Ellie (Sydney Fergerson) are the most sought after Ghost Hunters in Texas and are about to enter Southbrook. Is Southbrook all legend or is there a darker evil lurking in the halls.

INTRUSION: Holly Jensen leads an overly dramatic life. It’s one that is spent trying to avoid her problems and forget the past. Best friend Kali has the perfect solution to making Holly feel better. It’s a game called, “Wrong Number”. However, the man on the other end finds the joke less than funny and decides to play a game of his own. A game where Holly will become the pawn. It’s a character-driven thriller where everything has consequences and something as beautiful as a rose can be turned into any woman’s, worst nightmare.

Both Apparition and Intrusion are Now Available on Blu-ray and DVD via SGL Entertainment and can be found at Retailers like Best Buy, FYE, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Family Video, K-mart and More!!!

Kill Game: Press Release: "Los Angeles, CA - Seemingly innocent pranks turn deadly in the shocking horror adventure KILL GAME. Headlined by newcomer Sari Sanchez and also starring Joe Adler (The Maze Runner, "The Mentalist"), Pierson Fode (Indigenous), Michael Galante (Boy Meets Girl), and Laura Ashley Samuels (In Time), KILL GAME arrives on Digital HD December 1st, and on Blu-ray Disc (exclusively at Best Buy) and DVD January 5th from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and Vantage Media International. Written and directed by Robert Mearns and based on his short "Prank," the frightening film follows an unstoppable masked murderer who is out for blood.

KILL GAME begins as a group of good-looking, shallow high school teens amuse themselves by pulling pranks on less popular classmates and teachers. However, the teasing is not so harmless when one night, a prank goes horribly wrong and an innocent boy is killed. Covering their tracks by masking the incident as a drowning accident, the group lives with the horrible secret for years, never realizing that their actions will soon haunt them, with deadly results.

Five years later, they are shocked when one of them is murdered by a sinister serial killer donning a frightening mask. Soon, each of the group of friends is hunted down one by one in a manner that eerily mirrors the pranks they once pulled in high school. Whether it's karmic retribution, or the dead teen's spirit out for blood, one thing is one is laughing now."
