Crypt TV Joins Movie Pilot for One Sentence Scare Fan Competition

Published

on

Think you have what it takes to scare us using just one sentence? If so, this latest news is for you! Read on for the details of a new partnership between our friends at Crypt TV and Movie Pilot.

From the Press Release:
Movie Pilot and Crypt TV today announced a collaboration to find the next great “One Sentence Scare” via a fan competition hosted on moviepilot.com. The social-savvy digital entertainment platforms will invite fans across the globe to submit their best “One Sentence Scare,” with the winning submission produced by Eli Roth’s Crypt TV. The resulting video will be shared on both Crypt TV’s Facebook channel and Movie Pilot’s Horror Channel on Facebook, a network of more than 6 million collective fans.

Fans who submit their “One Sentence Scare” horror concept on Movie Pilot will have the chance to witness their vision come to life first-hand – with Movie Pilot and Crypt TV inviting the winner to the set for production of the short. Five contest finalists will be selected by Crypt TV, Roth, and Movie Pilot before a final winner is chosen on Friday, the 13th of May.

“I love Movie Pilot; they’ve been amazing supporters of genre cinema and have a fantastic audience,” said Eli Roth, co-founder of Crypt TV. “We’re excited to join forces to create something exciting with ideas entirely generated by their audience. It’s gonna be really cool.”

Co-founded by CEO Jack Davis and Roth, Crypt TV is a digital brand that produces dark and edgy content. They work with young filmmakers to create shorts, shows, and original series. The ultimate goal of Crypt TV is fundamentally changing the way fans consume and celebrate genre content — in short form, on mobile, every day. Since their launch one year ago, they have produced and released hundreds of genre shorts across social and built a substantial Facebook following, passing 1.1 million fans last month. That social-first, fan-centric approach brought Crypt TV and Movie Pilot together for this collaborative competition.

“At Movie Pilot we’re focused on activating and empowering creative fan voices, and Crypt TV shares that passion,” said Jon Handschin, co-founder and CCO of Movie Pilot. “Jack and Eli know the fans often have the best stories to tell, and we’re excited to tap an enormous horror community on Movie Pilot to create something really special here.”

Movie Pilot averages about 20 million unique monthly visitors and has become one of the top Facebook native video publishers, topping more than 80 million views in April. As a moderated open-posting platform offering fans a voice and mass distribution, Movie Pilot has also become a leader in the influencer marketing space, partnering with top movie studios to connect passionate fans with the content they love most.

“Movie Pilot does such an excellent job giving autonomy to the fans, especially their passionate community of horror fans,” said Jack Davis, CEO and co-founder of Crypt TV. “We’ve seen how well Movie Pilot fans have reacted to walking the red carpet at a premiere or interviewing talent from horror movies. Now we are really excited to see fans’ one sentence scare creativity and turn them into the original short scares Crypt TV has become known for.”

This marks the first official contest collaboration between the two new media companies. By combining creative and distribution forces, Movie Pilot and Crypt TV hope to usher in a more fan-centric approach to horror content, inviting storytellers across the globe to infuse the genre with new voices.

Exclusive: Terror Universal Dare You to Look Through the Mirrors

Published

on

Alright horror metalheads, it’s time to raise those devil horns and get ready for some Terror Universal! On hand we’ve got the exclusive video premiere for the track “Through the Mirrors”, which comes from the band’s album Make Them Bleed. Directed by Wacy Jahn, the video mixes band performance with the hallucinations and troubles of a man who clearly has some issues going on.

Jahn tells us about making the video, saying, “As a director, I was given the freedom to give my visual interpretation of what the song meant to me personally. The inner self that tortures the outer self into being something different no matter the cost. Now mix a twist of insanity into the recipe and you get the “Through the Mirrors” official Terror Universal music video.

Band member Massacre adds, “I am very pumped to be releasing the “Through The Mirrors” video, as this track is one of my favorite songs on our new album ‘Make Them Bleed’. This song showcases many of Terror Universal’s diverse sounds, as it’s brutally heavy, and also has a very anthemic and memorable chorus.

Made up of current and past members of Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body, Terror Universal is a metal band dedicated to combining their love of all things heavy with their passion for horror. Make Them Bleed also features guest appearances from bassists John Moyer (Disturbed) and Tony Campos (Static-X).

You can buy Make Them Bleed on Bandcamp.

The Sinking City Update Dives Into the Cthulhu Mythos That Drives the Game

Published

on

If you’ve been following our coverage of Frogwares’ The Sinking City, you’ll know that it’s probably my most anticipated game not just of the year but of a long, long time! An open world game that lives in the aesthetic and atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft? Consider me 100% hooked! This game ticks all the boxes of my love of horror and my love of gaming.

A new update video has been released and this one goes right into the ways that H.P. Lovecraft and his works directly influenced the game, the developers and the story players will experience. On top of that, it also goes into how Lovecraft’s themes inspired the creators at Frogwares to forge their own paths and create their own mythology and terror. It’s a wonderful video because we get to see these people take an established universe and build upon it with reverence, respect, and passion.

Seriously, if The Sinking City isn’t on your radar, you’re going to be missing out when it’s released.

Synopsis:
The Sinking City interprets and develops the themes that Lovecraft explored: the fear of monsters and the unknown, the search for occult truths and madness. In the game, players step into the shoes of a private detective investigating the disappearance of an expedition to the imaginary town of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont is a city experiencing unprecedented flooding due to supernatural forces, leaving a large portion of the city submerged. Secret societies, dangers, intrigues and monstrous creatures will stand in your way…
