The UK Summons Demons Via Ouija Board

While we continue to spin our wheels here in the States waiting for the "family adventure" that will be Ouija, based upon the Hasbro game which lets you contact the dead, our friends across the pond have a far more appropriate and sinister usage for the talking board cooking.

Ward 8 Changes Title to The Warning and Finds its Own Identity

A couple of weeks ago two one-sheets debuted that ripped off the Paranormal Activity franchise so badly in style that even the dudes at The Asylum were like, "Really?"

A Hottie Goth Cheerleader Versus Zombies in New Web Series Jessa Kill

Not everyone looks good battling zombies in a post-apocalyptic world. Sure, Laurie Holden pulls it off very nicely in "The Walking Dead," but she seems to be the exception to the rule.

Only the hands of fate could insist the world be graced by Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge.

New Panman Art and Trailer Dishes Out the Evil

Check Out the Official Trailer for Mold! and Then Watch the Entire Flick Online!

So what exactly will survive after a nuclear disaster? Cockroaches and mold. With resiliency like that, you'd have to imagine that sooner or later some horror director would tap the funky fungus to be the star of a film ... and Neil Meschino is just that director. Read on for the details.
