Twilight Dawning for Taintlight Parody

Am I the only one shocked that The Asylum is not getting in on the Twilight bandwagon with a mockbuster? It seems like a no-brainer; yet, here we sit, mockbuster-less. Someone has to pick up the Asylum's slack, and that's where Tempe Video's Splatter Rampage label and writer-director Chris Seaver come in with their horror parody Taintlight.

Those of you who fall into that category have long been waiting for John Carter to finally become a motion picture, and many of you are equally awaiting the big budget blockbuster coming in 2012.

Gris Grimley's Poe-Illustrated Book Launch

We here at Dread Central love Gris Grimly and his beautifully macabre contributions to the horror genre.
