Halloween Treat – See the First 16 Minutes of In Memorium



The success of the Paranormal Activity franchise has done a lot of good for not only our genre but for the indie filmmakers working within it. Case in point – Amanda Gusack’s cinéma-vérité style spooker, In Memorium.

The project has been literally in limbo for the past five years, but now as a means to re-ignite the promotional flames, you’ll be able to watch the first sixteen minutes of the movie over on InMemoriumTheMovie.com all day this coming Halloween!

“Upon PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’S release in 2009, whispers on internet message boards birthed comparisons to an earlier docu-horror—a 2005 microbudget film, entitled IN MEMORIUM. John Cooper of atomicpopcorn described it as a “creepy horror film with great jump scares, standing toe-to-toe with Paranormal Activity and knocking that film off its feet.”

Inspired by THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and THE RING, IN MEMORIUM centers on a struggling filmmaker who rents a house with his girlfriend to document his final days after a diagnosis of terminal cancer. To capture their lives without invasion, he installs motion-triggered security cameras in every room. But an invasion of a different sort is captured on the footage—an inexplicable presence in the house. Immediately after the discovery, things get terrifying.

Despite several successful festival screenings (including a world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival) and critical reception, the filmmaker and producers couldn’t find an offer for the film that would cover their selling costs. So, they opted to shelve it, deciding to hedge their bets and wait for another opportunity.

Now, with the expanding landscape of distribution options, and fans still asking to see the “other” docu-horror, the filmmaker will release IN MEMORIUM independently in the fall of 2010. It will premiere as a paid 30-day-rental stream on INDIEFLIX. The date and details will be announced on Halloween on InMemoriumTheMovie.com, when, for the first time outside of festivals, the opening 16 minutes of IN MEMORIUM will stream all day for free.

If the response to the INDIEFLIX streaming release is strong enough, the filmmaker plans to expand the film’s availability to additional outlets and media, including a DVD authored specifically for fans.

If anyone wonders: Can a no-budget docu-horror without the driving force of a studio behind it be any good?

Find out for yourself.

Go to InMemoriumTheMovie.com all day on Halloween to watch the first 16 minutes free.

Written and Directed by Amanda Gusack, Produced by Lydia Cedrone and Meredith Freeman, Starring Erik McDowell, Johanna Watts, Levi Powell, and Mary Portser.”

Ryan Schifrin’s Abominable Gets a Sasquatch-Sized Blu-Ray



A recent scientific study concluded that since the year 2000 there have 4,374,139 killer Bigfoot movies. 2006’s Abominable is one of the better Sasquatch-ploitation flicks of the era. Now this creature feature is getting a collector’s edition blu-ray complete with a brand new cut of the gruesome flick.

MVD Rewind Collection has announced they’re planning a special edition of Ryan Schifrin’s gory Hitchcock-influenced Bigfoot flick Abominable, which cast Matt McCoy as a wheelchair bound man who begins Rear Window-ing a psycho Sasquatch terrorizing his hot-blooded cabin neighbors that then turns his big foot towards him. Lance Henriksen, Dee Wallace, Jeffrey Combs, Tiffany Shepis, Haley Joel, Karin Anna Cheung, and Paul Gleason co-star.

It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It’s been hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us?

After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

This won’t be your typical collector’s edition as not only will be getting a new high definition transfer of the film originally shot on 35mm, this will also include an all-new cut of the film with improved CGI-effects overseen by filmmaker Schifrin and editor Chris Conlee with enhanced color timing and correction.

Horror Retro Caps Boasts Hats Featuring The Lamp, The Video Dead, Rosemary’s Killer and more!



Yesterday I was stumbling around on Instagram and I came across this killer account called @horrorretrocaps. They make horror movie-themed hats and I felt the need to share their work with you guys today.

It’s not so much the hats (which are cool), or the quality of the product (which looks sound as a pound) but it is the obvious love of horror by the guys behind the scenes that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

I mean sure there are products like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But they also have hats celebrating such classics as The Outing, The Lamp (hell, yeah!), The Gate, Zombie Lake, and The Video Dead.


On top of that, the product that sealed the deal for me was their Rosemary’s Killer hat. As some of you might know, Rosemary’s Killer is the alternate title of Joseph Zito’s underrated slasher The Prowler. That alone just earned them horror-cred for days.

You can check out some of their choice caps below and then head on over to their account to purchase some product: @horrorretrocaps.

All caps are $15 plus $4 shipping in the U.S., and he also takes requests for $20.

Jurassic Park T-Rex Stomps Through Ready Player One Trailer #3



Is that the f*cking T-Rex!?

It was only earlier this week that we brought you guys the new “pure 80’s nostalgia” poster (to the right) for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure film Ready Player One.

And if all the promotional materials we have seen thus far haven’t done anything to raise your interest in the film (including trailers which featured Freddy Krueger, Chucky, Christine, and King Kong) then today’s new might not help matters much.

But all the same today we have a new trailer which features the mighty T-Rex from Spielberg’s own Jurassic Park and a bunch of new character posters for good measure.

I’m just going to come right out and say that as impressed as I am with the trailers for this film, I can’t help but feel someone watched theImaginationland episode of “South Park” and thought, “Mother of God… call Steven Speilberg!”

You can check out the character posters and the new trailer below and then let us know what you think of the film thus far.

Ready Player One is directed by Steven Spielberg from a script by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on the novel by Cline. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn.

The film hits theaters March 29, 2018.


When the creator of an MMO called the Oasis dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all Oasis users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
