Mel Heflin: the Unknown Indie Horror Actress! (Interview) (December 2013)

Mel Heflin is a sweet lady who resigns in Florida, USA. She is a actress who does her own stunts and models between films and voice acting and is a keen animal lover.
She has been in the modelling since 2003, and for the next 6 years she has done all sorts of modelling, from swimwear, to fetish, to lingerie and nude. In 2009, she caught the acting bug with her debut in Scarlet Rain as Cece and acted in a fantasy horror called, Jinn. Since then she has worked on a dozen projects, from shorts and web series to features. One of her most recent roles will be a part in Carlos Dunn's: I Thought You Were A Nice Man once the funding is rasied - see HERE.
Mel has an impressive imdb acting list, but due to lack of funds, again - some features were never finished so her future plans are to make one herself. She enjoys the horror genre and shows like The Walking Dead, in which she would love to be a part of, even as a Zombie for the popular show one day and meet the cast.
Heflin has also worked…

Christmas Slay - Festive Indie Horror from Kent, UK! (Interview) (December 2013)

Ho Ho Ho, merry Christmas horror and fright fans... have you heard of Christmas Slay??? I mentioned it in my last post, it stars glamour model Dani Thompson and is directed by Kent Independent Films'Steve Davis. It is scheduled to start filming in February, 2014 and has had various online funding campaigns behind it such as Kickstarter. A killer Santa clause is on the loose and the body count is going up, I hope Steve can deliver on this horror project, spawned from the Indywood team. We all ready know what Antony D Lane is doing with his unique Zombie film, so can Steve do the same and help put Kent on the map with his own festive horror film?

When do you start filming Xmas Slay, Steve?
"We start production of the main Christmas Slay shoot on February 8th (2014), on our return we will be releasing a teaser and doing one last big fundraiser via indiegogo or Sponsume to cover additional shooting and post before completing filming in April."

When do you aim to release the fi…

Invasion of the Not Quite Dead! (December 2013)

Anthony D Lane has been a busy man as of late, marriage, a new daughter, touring with indie/rock band, Wheatus, etc;. His new take on the zombie genre is being shot in various different locations like Kent and even in Europe. It's called INVASION OF THE NOT QUITE DEAD and I even became a Producer on it to show my support. What does Ant need donations for? Well, I'll tell you, he has been busy building sets and paying actors and make-up people get his dream done. It started out on Twitter and has blown up over the internet with horror and indie folks everywhere around the world. He promises it to be a spin on his favorite film genres, Zombies and B-Movies.

Anthony is also doing this for his late Legendary film mentor, Ken Russell, who he met in 2006 at film school and is honoring the film maker in doing the project. Others on the project are special effects make up lady, Michele Mulkey, who has worked on several Hollywood films in the past and Ant's long time friend Steve Da…

REVIEW: Jason Brown's "A Date With Ghost" - Supernatural Indie Horror Review From Nottingham (October 2013)

Jason Brown has always had a fascination with the supernatural and in "A Date with Ghosts", he has put together a 70 minute mini feature shot in Nottingham with great merits. I was lucky enough to see this film as a test screen-er on the internet in 2013.

A Date with Ghosts is well put together and the title sequence credits really stood out for me in their high looking production values. Jason has reportedly spent over £1K on this very ambitious horror film. The acting is good (i.e. lead actress, Sadie Kime) and the jump scare techniques were very well done and edited. There seem to be some unedited screen shots, but I assume this was to be fixed as Jason takes the film to festivals.

What impressed me is that things look higher in values in this feature. I hope it does well for him and Jason even has an acting role. The locations all look good in the country side and derelict church buildings added with matte and cgi techniques for shots that are worth seeing alone. Also, th…

Shawn "Allen" Goremonger is the Head Cheese at Goremonger Media/Screaming Pumpkin Productions! He has been a good friend to me on Facebook and it's about time I gave him a SHOUT OUT. He is a dedicated metal head and loves his horror and film making. Shawn is currently helping me with a project for Halloween and thanks to the power of the internet, it's all becoming a reality - We met through through Youtube/Facebook and had seen him in Wetmovie's videos at Horror Cons during 2011. We have been friends, since. I thank Shawn from the bottom of my blogging heart for everything he has done and his dedication to filming. Rock on, Bro! And as you can tell, he's a Texas Chainsaw Massacre fan!

November, 3rd of 2013 will be Godzilla, King of the Monster's 59th Birthday! On this date, the 2012 Comic Con teaser trailer is set to be released online by Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures - however, the much anticipated trailer was leaked this past Friday afternoon over the internet. Having seen it myself, I was so impressed by it and had to put it on replay to take everything in director Gareth Edwards has to offer. No, I won't post the trailer as what would be the point as the film company keeps pulling it down, but here are a few images from what we did see:

REVIEW: Night of the Demons (1988) plus The After Party??? (October 2013)

It wouldn't be Halloween without a Horror film. Here's a classic one from 1988 called Night of the Demons and it was directed by Kevin S Tenney of Witchboard fame. Old Hull House is haunted and it plays host to a Halloween party for rowdy and sexed-up teenagers who just wanna have some fun. Soon, after a seance is held, Angela - the party hostess - is possessed by evil powers and soon starts to become a ghoulish demon, vent on making sure her party guests have a HELL of a time on Halloween night! It's up to the last survivors to escape the Nightmare and put an end to the Night of the Demons.
The film's main Scream Queen star is played by Linnea Quigley from Return of the Living Dead (now with blonde hair) and she gets up to no good, being possessed or NOT. She also has a topless scene involving her make up and lipstick which features make up effects by her former husband, Steve Johnson... watch out for this scene! Her partner in crime, Angela is played by Amelia Kinka…

Pacific Rim by Ramin Djawad (Ft/Tom Morello) (Pacfic Rim OST)
This past summer, I went to see Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim in 3D. The thing that really stood out for me, aside from giant Kaiju monsters, was the amazing theme by Ramin Djawad (Ft/Tom Morello - Rage Against the Machine & Audioslave). The film comes out on 3D Blu Ray & Dvd in November, so DON'T MISS IT. Here are a few main themes from the movie done in METAL, Enjoy...
