Mr. Sandman Bringing Us a Nightmare on Halloween



Premiering online for Halloween, the short film Sandman will later play at festivals worldwide, and believe me, this is a nightmare where getting dust sprinkled in your eyes is the least of your problems.

From the Press Release
This years Halloween short from SuperfreakMedia comes in the form of ‘SANDMAN.’ When Sandy comes to from a strange dream she isn’t aware of the terrifying nightmare that awaits her now she is awake.

Starring up and coming talent Esmee Matthews as our lead character Sandy, the film is sure to terrify viewers when it tears its way online Halloween night for a short period before hitting film festivals worldwide.

SuperfreakMedia prides itself on creating fresh and original content with a dash of retro cool. ‘SANDMAN’ reunites a whole host of talent from previous short film ventures, including last years’ ‘Mr Creak.’ The short screened on BBC Three’s ‘The Fear’ last October placing 5th nationally, out of over 850 entries. The award winning team is back once more, bigger, better and a whole lot scarier!

Liam Banks, Director and Writer of ‘SANDMAN’ said “The challenge for this film was to create one of the scariest shorts we have ever made. Creating tension and fleshing out this gruesome character we had come up with was key. I really hope audiences respond to it well, already there are parts of the film I can’t wait to see surrounded by people just to watch how they react!”

SANDMAN will be available to view online Halloween night at 7pm on SuperfreakMedia’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page so be sure to check it out if you fancy a scare!

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy



We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth



Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!
