The Last Revenant (Vampire Movie) (Funding) (December 2015)

Dani Thompson - co-star of Axe To Grind returns in: The Last Revenant!
The Last Revenant is a new Vampire movie from screen-writer Scott C. Sanford! Sanford had written Axe To Grind (2015) starring Scream Queens Debbie Rochon and Dani Thompson! Rochon and Thompson is set to return, too!

Further Details:

Dear Potential Investors:
As a follow up movie to our AXE TO GRIND, Seraph Productions is in development on an erotically charged female vampire project entitled THE LAST REVENANTS. Famed director Jim Wynorski is slated to direct this micro-budgeted horror drama that has worldwide distribution already in place.

Jim and I, along with my production partners, have painstakingly searched for the most incredibly sexy and talented actresses from Los Angeles and around the world to populate the cast of this project.

Following the formula used on AXE TO GRIND of cutting costs on locations and using an experienced film crew that has worked together multiple times, we will be able to complete filming and post production for less than $50,000. One sale to a cable TV outlet and dvd sale to Family Video would alone bring back most of the budget to the investors. Our distributor, with over thirty years' experience, will also be using their connections to sell to Video On Demand, streaming outlets around the country and websites such as Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart. With a proven track record of sales to foreign film buyers as well, we anticipate a small profit on this release within the span of 18-24 months.

To procure the balance of the needed production money, Seraph Productions is offering an exclusive investment opportunity. 

A $1,500 investment : 100% return on investment up to break even on the $ 1,500, then 100% of every dollar of profit at a rate of 3.3% based on a budget of $45,000. In addition to this ROI, each $ 1,500 investor would be entitled to free passage to one day of filming on set in Los Angeles, travel not included.

A $2,500 investment: same investment return above to break even based on 5.55% investment, and yielding 5.55 % of all profits plus free passage to on set filming of the entire shoot, and executive producer credit on IMDB and on film negative. In addition, you will be authorized to dine daily with cast and crew at our professionally catered lunch, and will be given free lodging to a hotel in close proximity to the set. If interested, this level of investment would also entitle you to a speaking cameo acting part.
All investment returns up to break even are calculated after the distributors' initial outlay has been returned, and profits will be based on the percentage negotiated with the distributor; typically 70/30 investor/distributor split.
There are only a limited number of slots available.

Please contact our production team at the craigslist link with any questions.
Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you!
Sincerely,
Sanford, Scott C.
Producer

Review: Mystics in Bali (1981) (December 2015)

Mystics in Bali (1981) - Weird, Gross, yet entertaining Indonesian Horror.
A few weeks ago, I was at Merlyn Robert's World Wide Weird screening of Mystics in Bali (1981). The film was new to me, but it was an experience! MIB is an Indonesian Horror flick from the very early 80's. The film is also known as Leak and it centres around a young village couple where the female lover of the two wants to get into Black Magic! The boyfriend introduces her to an evil witch in the woods who gives her more than she bargains for!!

It is a bizarre film with plenty of special effects and twisted, weird horror to keep the audience going for 90 minutes! I don't really want to give too much away as I watched this film not knowing what to expect, myself. My video review below will give more details, though.

I would recommend this film to the open-minded horror fan!! It is creative in it's weirdness and if you like old fashioned good vs evil-type films, then I would say to try Mystics in Bali (1981) - Cinemassacre had all ready reviewed this film as part of a camp/cult horror season for Monster Madness a few years back, too. The film version I saw was English-dubbed! For more details on World Wide Weird - See, HERE.

RIP Lemmy from Motörhead (December 2015)

RIP Lemmy - Rock N Roll's Finest!
He was Rock and Roll's finest! Lemmy Kilmister was sadly diagnosed with aggressive cancer not long after his birthday shortly this month in December. Lemmy has passed away (1945 - 2015) - he was 70. Some of Heavy Metal/Rock royalty have all paid their respects through twitter and social media including Ozzy Osbourne, Queensryche, Judas Priest and many others offering nothing but sweet words about the former Hawkwind singer and bass-player.

Lemmy was also known for making appearances in Troma films and appeared in the film Airheads (1994). Kilmister was the up-front bassist/vocalist of Motörhead. His death came shortly after that of former band-mate, Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor. RIP: Lemmy & Phil.

Music: Amazing "Silent Lucidity" Cover by Manydave666 (Youtube) (December 2015)


I love this cover of Queensryche's hit single, "Silent Lucidity". It was done in 2013 and features some double vocal harmonies, a full band and a family of choir on the chorus. I find it very magical and a nice rock ballad from 1990 to chill to at night! Well done to Manydave666 on Youtube, please check it out!

Interview: Greenie O'Shivers (Emerald Gore Society) (December 2015)


Who or What influenced the design for Greenie?
Greenie or Ervan, as his old given name is, came from an old Irish tale about a well-known local woman in Co.Clare called Bridget Ellen "Biddy" Early or Biddy Early as more commonly known. It was always pondered if she was a Wise Woman or a Witch. Stories of her I shall leave for people to look into or perhaps we will share them another day. But as to Greenie? Biddy was famous for having certain powers and gifts, some of these centered around a blue bottle she kept and treasured. There are many rumors around this bottle but Greenie himself seems to be the only one, well along with known story teller / Seanchaí Eddie Lenihan, that knows the truth. To that end the story goes that the green one was summoned to assist Biddy in her work in helping the people of county Clare with their troubles. His character is somewhat mischievous but funny and a little friendly. Somewhere between Beetlejuice & The Crypt Keeper.

What can you tell us about the website: Emerald Gore Society?
The Emerald Gore Society started out as kind of necessity. When Raven and I were talking one evening we were sharing old ghost stories and talking about Horror Movies. When I went to look up about Irish horror movies or movies based on Irish folklore and what not I discovered there was no Irish horror site? {Though a few have cropped up since} There were a few paranormal sites and folklore sites {Big shout out to Spooky Isles!}, but none specifically about Irish Horror or Horror in Ireland. From there as you can guess, we decided since there was none we should make one! From there the EGS was born!


Who helps you to run EGS and how long has it been running?
For the Day to Day running there is Greenie, Faceless Mike and Raven. Without all of whom the EGS simply would not be updated or edited. Then we have all our great writers and editors including iLL Will, Carter, Giz, Gorner Jon, Fang and Ann. Without all the work these guys voluntarily put in we simply would not exist. We all pitch in to do this because of our love of Horror, because it isn’t the money! LOL. If it were then we would be in the wrong game ;).

You've been offered roles as Greenie... can you tell us more?
Greenie has been approached on a few occasions to show up in the background of various horror films and shorts. Though I have not had much opportunity to take people up on it as much as I would like, recently I have been making a point of doing as many as I can. Actually while we are on the topic, I can share that there should be a short Christmas horror story due to go online on Christmas Eve that you might just spot a familiar little green face in.

And finally, who was your favorite being to Interview?
Oh I will need to get back to you on that one. Sadly due to work I personally have not had much time to interview people myself. That I am grateful that all the rest of the EGS family have picked up the slack on and have been doing a great job with. Though I can share that I will interview some of Horrors greatest legends at the upcoming ScreamVention Horror Convention in Dublin at the end of this upcoming February. So I will get back to you on that one. What I would like to know is who would like to be interviewed by this demented little imp?

Stay Spooky,
Greenie.

Beyond Terror Dvd: Spookies (1986) - Review!! (December 2015)

Spookies aka Twisted Souls (1986)
It's hard not to like Spookies (1986). It's a B-Movie horror, the film had production problems in the day, there are silly moments, but there is praise for the efforts! Twisted Souls was in Production, but finished as Spookies in 1986. There was trouble behind the scenes to get the film done with numerous directors and film-makers!! What we have is a nice looking indie horror film with good special efforts and a nice atmospheric music score, too!!

The story revolves around a young boy at first named Billy, who runs away from home to an old mansion and graveyard! There he meets an old man who runs a house full of creepy-looking monsters including Mud-Men, a werewolf assistant who pops up everywhere and even the Grim Reaper, himself!! Cue a bunch of mature-looking teenagers out to party for the night and you have: Spookies.

A bizarre horror flick and one that always gets bought up as a forgotten gem, too. If you look on facebook, you find a page dedicated to the film, HERE! According to the page, extra sound effects were added to the Mud-Men for comic effect, with unapproved film-maker approval! No wonder that there was tension on the set and behind the scenes - hence  the film orginal title was "Twisted Souls"! On a lighter note, it's still worth checking out on the Beyond Terror UK Dvd label.

"Twsited Souls" was directed by Brendan Faulkner and Thomas Doran whilst Spookies was directed by Eugenie Joseph. Joeseph came on board to finish the film and edit it.

Interview: Wanderlust (Trans-Model/Writer) (December 2015)

Model Wanderlust - Sci-fi/Cyberpunk fan!!
I first met Wanderlust through her friend Emma Dark in London in the Summer of 2015. There was enough supporters at Seize the Night and I'm glad that was there in Wanderlust, too! She is a lovely lady, a sci-fi/horror fan and was a former DJ at night. Model Mayhem profile: HERE.

Please, tell me a bit about yourself Wanderlust?
My name's Wanderlust. 100% legit and totally my birth name! ;). Wanderlust is a German word referring to a desire to travel and explore for the sake of travelling, and it's something I've always have. I especially love northern and eastern Europe, and I've spent a lot of time in Germany, but more on that later. I'm transgender (MtF), a model and occasional writer, and am very keen on gothic, industrial and cyberpunk fashion and lifestyle. I can be found dwelling around London and the home counties - wherever the shadows are long, and the ground encased in concrete and surrounded by tall, imposing buildings and abandoned factories - my natural habitat.

What are your favorite film genres and why?
I'm a big sci-fi fan. Not just any sci-fi, but of the grim, semi-realistic used-future style - films like Aliens, Blade Runner, Dark Star, Robocop. Cyberpunk is my stock-in-trade. It reflects my worldview - a fairly grim one of the world, focused on the underclass living in effect in cracks in the pavement of a world soaring high on it's own self-belief. but in denial of its rotting roots. Take Aliens, for example - the outwardly utopian Weyland-Yutani Corporation ('Building Better Worlds'), where apparently all the employees are prone to acts of manslaughter in the name of profit (The aliens being for me a nice metaphor - literally breeding on the bodies of hapless humans where the Corporation does figuratively). There's horror in there over and above the blood and the claustrophobia of that film, as well as the de-humanised man-trapped-in-machine blood-satire of Robocop.

Do you have any favorite genres of music and bands?
I certainly do! Until recently I was a DJ for gothic and industrial clubs in London and ran my own night in my hometown of Luton (which may explain my worldview), I love all things gothic and industrial - some of my favourite bands being Front 242, Nitzer Ebb, Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Curve and Nine Inch Nails. I'm also a huge 80s synthpop fan (Flock of Seagulls, Pet Shop Boys, Alphaville) and am hugely enjoying the retro-80s thing going on with bands like Perturbator, Power Glove and Le Cassette. Even Chvrches get a look in.

What are your Dreams for the Film/Model Industry?

Finally, how was your Seize the Night experience?

A Gothic Poem for Christmas by MrSheltonTV (December 2015)

A Gothic Poem for Xmas by MrSheltonTV
The Dark Stare!! 

I walked alone, across the corridor, feeling nothing but ice cold floor.
Weeping walls of dusk, I walked on as I must.
To feel the cold air, outside, as I took one more stride.
Ahead, I went... clutching my coat, with a lump in my throat.

The darkness has come, to draw in the night.
I turned on the floor, looking for fright.
Nothing, black thick air, I did nothing but stare, into darkness and nothing more!

The sense of cold I felt, gripping my coat.
Seeing nothing more, but of forgotten law
The forgotten more through Nevermore!
The crows are weeping, the crows are sounding, the crows are sweeping!

As the snow lay, outside, the gothic children cry.
Branches on the winded trees, tap at the seams.
The House is empty, I was never there...
Nevermore will you have to face my ice glanced, Dark Stare... OF DEATH!
