Blitzkrieg for Christmas

I know the simple act of waiting for the new Nazisploitation movie Blitzkrieg: Escape From Stalag 69 has been hard on a lot of you (I get very emotional e-mails on an almost daily basis exemplifying just how hard) so I’m glad we can finally offer you some relief.

Final Horrorfest Title Announced!

Perkins' 14 Poster Winner!

Wow, I have to say I’m pretty impressed; the poster you see below for Perkins' 14 was the winning entry in Massify’s poster design competition. It was designed by a guy named Justin and, as you can tell, is about as retro as they come. I have to admit it; I love it!

Splinter Soundtrack Now Available

You may not remember, but one of the six awards Toby Wilkins’ Splinter took home from Screamfest LA was for Best Musical Score, and I have to concur; the music in this film is very, very cool.
