Here's a Web Series Guaranteed to Have You Scared Stiff

Horror is everywhere. You just have to know where to look. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we are no longer forced to wait for the big film companies to burp out a new horror offering for us (which more often than not is a big letdown). Simply by turning to the web, you can find web series created for the sole purpose of giving you nightmares. And we've recently discovered a great one…Scared Stiff.

Lots of horror films claim to have insane body counts. However, only one claims to have had it verified by Guinness World Records. The Summer of Massacre anthology film boasts eight slashers introduced across five stories throughout the film and a body count that may be the biggest of all time. Wow, that's quite the pile of dead.

Night Terrors Finds a Home at Dread Central After Being Banned Elsewhere

I love this story! Chris St. Croix and David Buchert are the co-creators of a new web series entitled Night Terrors. They've had the first episode, "The Keeper", taken down from several sites around the internet for containing "objectionable content". Well, the boys contacted Dread Central with their conundrum, and (being the fans of objectionable content that we are) we said, "Boys, you've got a home."

New Trailer and One-Sheet Ready to Administer A Thousand Cuts to Hollywood

For years indie filmmakers in Hollywood have dreamed about taking revenge on those who have wronged them. It kind of makes you wonder just why no one has made a slasher flick about directors going nuts over the MPAA cutting their films. Fantasy, I know, but one can dream, no? Either way a new psycho based slice and dice called A Thousand Cuts is well on its way, and we have the trailer and artwork right here.

Pledge Zombie Allegiance to the Living Dead on December 6th

I pledge allegiance... to the undead hordes clamoring to eat my brain. And honestly, if the shit does ever hit the fan, what other group would you want to side with? Unfortunately, the walking dead are not usually much for national pride, but if I've got a zombie with his teeth on my head, I'm willing to try just about anything. Say hello to Zombie Allegiance.

Remake of The Giant Gila Monster Begins Filming Today

Disasters Will Go to War in Earthquake vs. Tsunami

If slashers and monsters can have their own "versus" movies, then why can’t natural disasters duke it out? Finally, at long last, we will get the answer to the burning question as to who would win in a battle between an earthquake and a tsunami. In this case the tagline of “whoever wins, we lose” will truly be apropos like never before.
