Next Wednesday, December 5th, horror comedy Kill Me Now begins rolling out in theatres via the Tugg platform, and we have three pairs of tickets to give away for the Pasadena, CA, premiere, which will be attended by the film’s writer/co-star Michael Swaim.
The screening begins at 7:30pm at Laemmle Playhouse 7. To enter for your chance to win a pair of tickets, just send us an E-MAIL HERE including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. We’ll take care of the rest and send the winners an email with info on how to get their tickets on Monday, December 3rd.
In the not-too-distant past, with the help of a windowless van and a jar of chloroform, a group of Internet sketch comedians were hauled off to the backwoods of Illinois to shoot their first movie! The horror comedy features Streamy and Webby Award winner Michael Swaim (“Agents of Cracked”) and the casts of “Those Aren’t Muskets!,” “Good Neighbor,” “Tremendosaur,” “Team Tiger Awesome,” and “Horsehead Businessman.” The film will be released exclusively through Tugg this December, with cast-hosted premieres to take place in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Diego.
Kill Me Now chronicles one unforgettable night in the lives of a ragtag group of small-town teens. It’s a night that will prove equally unforgettable for the sinister Driller Killer (Brett Fancy – “EastEnders,” “Luther”), a deranged serial killer bent on ridding the world of vapidity and dumbassedness (everyone else). When he comes upon the kids’ all-night graduation party–conveniently held at a cabin deep in the woods–he finds both in spades. Unfortunately, Mr. Killer is about to learn something crappy bumper stickers learned long ago: stupid people can be deadly in large numbers. Kill Me Now blends horror, comedy, depth and plain jackassery to form a brew so potent you won’t know whether to laugh, scream, or think about, like, life and stuff. The movie features performances from a staggering array of the Internet’s hottest up-and-coming comedians, writing from the guys behind “Those Aren’t Muskets!” and Cracked.com, direction from a dude whose previous work includes hardcore, joint-smokin’, Twista-havin’, Kanye-featurin’ rap videos, and at least one scene where a chick totally gets a drill to the brain. But it’s funny!
Written by Michael Swaim and directed by Travis Long, Kill Me Now was filmed on location in Effingham, Illinois, and stars Michael Swaim, Brett Fancy, Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Nick Rutherford, Jacob Reed, LisaMarie King, Brentan Schellenbach, Nick Mundy, Kaitlin Large, Dan Rubiano, Noah Byrne, Katy Stoll, Katie Willert and Daniel O’Brien.

Halloween may be over but we’re still giving away the goodies! Up next we have a chance for you to nab a copy of The Limehouse Golem (review) on DVD!
To enter for your chance to win, just send an email to email@example.com including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS along with “The Limehouse Golem” in your subject line. We’ll take care of the rest.
This contest will end at 12:01 AM PT on November 6th. Note: By entering this contest, you are consenting to allow Dread Central and its subsidiaries use of your email address.
From the Press Release:
RLJ Entertainment is set to release the action film THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM on DVD and Blu-ray on November 7, 2017. Based on the novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem by Peter Ackroyd with a screenplay by acclaimed writer Jane Goldman (Kingsman, The Woman in Black), the film is directed by Juan Carlos Medina (Painless) and produced by Stephen Woolley (Their Finest, Interview with the Vampire), Joanna Laurie (Hyena), and Elizabeth Karlsen (Carol).
THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM stars Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Underworld), Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, “Bates Motel”), Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Noah), Daniel Mays (“Line of Duty”), and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Homes, “Ray Donovan.”) RLJE will release THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and on Blu-ray for an SRP of $29.97.
The city of London is gripped with fear as a serial killer – dubbed The Limehouse Golem – is on the loose and leaving cryptic messages written in his victims’ blood. With few leads and increasing public pressure, Scotland Yard assigns the case to Inspector Kildare (Bill Nighy) – a seasoned detective with a troubled past and a sneaking suspicion he’s being set up to fail. Faced with a long list of suspects, including music hall star Dan Leno (Douglas Booth), Kildare must get help from a witness who has legal troubles of her own (Olivia Cooke) so he can stop the murders and bring the killer to justice.
THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM DVD and Blu-ray have bonus features that include behind-the-scenes featurettes about the cast, locations, look, and the making of THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM.
Win a Copy of Circus Kane on DVD!
Uncork’d Entertainment and DeInstitutionalized unleashed Circus Kane, dubbed “the horror movie of the fall,” on DVD (and Redbox) last week; and to celebrate, we have five copies of the DVD to give away.
Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire) and Mark Christopher Lawrence (Cooties) head up the cast of Christopher Douglas-Olen Ray’s fantastic frighthouse Circus Kane (review). James Cullen Bressack and Zack Ward scripted, based on a story by Sean Sellars. Gerald Webb, Ray, and Bressack produce.
To enter, all you have to do is fill out the form below. The contest will end at 12:00 midnight, October 24, 2017.
The notorious and disgraced circus master Balthazar Kane invites an unsuspecting group of social media stars to the revival of his CIRCUS KANE by promising $250,000 to any of them who can make it through the night. Kane’s true plan quickly proves to be far more sinister as the contestants realize more than money is on the line. The group must fight for their lives to escape Kane’s demented house of horrors.
Get Weaponized – Enter Now to Win a Copy of this Dystopian Horror Novel
A few days ago we brought you an exclusive except from Zac Thompson’s dystopian horror novel Weaponized, and with the book’s Halloween release date fast approaching, we’re back with one more reminder… and a chance for you to score a copy for yourself!
Weaponized was the winner of the 2016 Crypt TV horror fiction contest. For fans of Clive Barker, David Cronenberg, and films like It Follows, Weaponized is a Kafka-esque Eighties throwback horror novel that subverts the slasher genre with a refreshing take on body horror and the twisted, violent, burgeoning sexuality that underpins the genre. It is Thompson’s debut novel.
To enter for your chance to win, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS along with “Weaponized” in your subject line.
This contest will end at 11:59 PM PT on October 20, 2017 – so act quickly! Note: This contest is open to U.S. residents only. By entering this contest, you are consenting to allow Dread Central and its subsidiaries use of your email address.
Also, don’t forget about the contest we’re co-sponsoring with Inkshares to find the next great horror authors – just a few more weeks remain!
Truog Island is a desolate place where sexual activity is outlawed. There lives Trip Yash, bored out of his mind. That was, until he met Cron…
After a night of passion, Cron disappears, taking Trip’s virginity with him. A few days later Trip develops a rash on his hand that eventually blooms into a gun made from his own flesh. It’s not long before Trip becomes a living weapon locked in a battle against an ancient virus that threatens to ruin his island home. As his body continues to change, terrifying forces emerge with the power to weaponize the dead.
Weaponized is a nerve-shattering exploration of sexual identity and people’s strange relationship with tools of death. It is a Kafka-esque horror take on sexual orientation and sexually transmitted infections and how we villainize those who are different.
