Apollo 18 Comes Home for Christmas

A funny thing about Apollo 18. Every time we tried to see it in the theatre, something happened to prevent us from going. Attempt 1: On vacation. Attempt 2: Not feeling well.

New One-Sheet for The Lost Coast Tapes Gets to the Point on Bigfoot

Cinéma vérité style filmmaking and Bigfoot should go together like peanut butter and jelly! Ash and the evil dead! Jason and naked teens!

Generic Artwork for The Asylum's Amityville Haunting
