Crowdfunding Corner: Into the Black Abyss: Deathstream

I saw the proof of concept video for this film and was immediately blown away. As someone who goes nuts over Found Footage films I truly appreciate ones that set themselves apart from the others. Into the Black Abyss: Deathstream looks to be a trippy home-invasion film that gives meaning to the camera–and the protagonist seems incredibly relatable. Personally I’ve found myself quarantined up and watching more live streamers than I ever have in my …

Join us as we discuss his oeuvre, his inspirations and his upcoming works. Quick path down memory lane first. I first became familiar with his work when I got back into reading.

[Trailer] Darren Lynn Bousman Gets Wild With His Genre Bending DEATH OF ME

If there has ever been a genre filmmaker who will go down in history as one of the greatest, it’s DLB. Saw II and Saw III really solidified him as a genre creator, but it was during Repo! The Genetic Opera where he really broke the mold. His creations are wild and extreme and have even broken out film with his revolutionary Tension Experience; an all around mind fuck of an Alternate Reality Game. There …

[Trailer] NO ESCAPE Offers Little Refuge

Did you know that escape rooms are scary? The thought of being locked in a room for an hour as a “group bonding supersize” with 5 co-workers you barley even know is chilling–let alone when the game designer wants to kill you. Will Wernick blasted into the genre with the critically divisive Escape Room (which is currently playing in my background) in 2019, and it seems he plans on keeping his motif with No Escape …

Though his new venture into the genre takes him to a whole new level. Thomas Livingston, an author desperate for a hit, spends a weekend locked in a haunted …

[Trailer] Better Get The Mop, Kevin Smith’s KILLROY WAS HERE Is Gonna Be Bloody

Kevin Smith’s divisive oeuvre has spanned over a quarter of a century, and crossed through multiple genres. His earlier films have mainly been dramedies while his later films have been mainly horror (sans the Jay and Silent Bob reboot). He broke his genre mold with the political/religious satire Red State, which is a visceral no holds barred gut punch. From there he made the Justin Long vehicle Tusk–this one was the real genre divider. And …

[Trailer] There’s Actually A Million and One Ways to Die in the West: THE PALE DOOR

There was one thing Seth MacFarlane’s “comedy” A Million Ways to Die in the West didn’t take into account, and that’s witches. After a train robbery goes bad, two brothers leading a gang of cowboys must survive the night in a ghost town inhabited by a coven of witches. IMDb Horror Westerns are a fun niche subgenre rarely delved upon, which is a real shame. While a fair portion of them aren’t great the outliers …
