“Tales From the Crypt” ran from 1989 to 1996, lasting seven seasons and featuring 93 episodes. Directors throughout its run included Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Darabont, Robert Zemeckis, Tom Hanks, Kyle MacLachlan, Michael J. Fox, Tom Holland, Tobe Hooper, Richard Donner, and many more. The show also spawned a few movies, including Demon Night and Bordello of Blood.

Synopsis:
Your favorite deadtime stories return from the grave in the spook-tacular Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Series. Cadaverous scream legend the Crypt Keeper hosts this groundbreaking anthology of macabre masterpieces featuring vampires, mad doctors, killers, ghosts, and other terrifying makers and corpse creators. Based on the tasteless and terrifying E.C. Comics classics, the show featured top-tier film talent, including Richard Donner, Joel Silver, Robert Zemeckis and Frank Darabont – even Arnold Schwarzenegger helmed an episode! Add up-and-coming nineties actors Daniel Craig, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, and others, then edit in resurrected Hollywood greats like Humphrey Bogart and Alfred Hitchcock, and fans of twisted, dead-on humor were glued to their screens. Now, gathered together in one creepy collection for the first time, all the frightful fun of the original uncut episodes deemed too racy for television broadcast, plus loads of eerie extras, is yours until the day you die…laughing!

Exclusive: Cadabra Brings Chilling Eeriness With M.R. James’ Casting the Runes

Published

on

For those who haven’t heard of them, Cadabra Records is a boutique record label that specializes in creating audio plays of fantastic horror stories. They did it with The Yellow Sign by Robert W. Chambers and have done stories from Bram Stoker and H.P. Lovecraft. Today, we’re thrilled to help them announce their new project, which is a full cast audio play of M.R. James’ Casting the Runes. Below is an audio sample, which give you a taste of the magnificent scope of the production.

Starring David Warner (The Omen, Star Trek, In The Mouth of Madness), produced by Bleak December, and adapted by Anthony D.P. Mann, the limited edition vinyl will be released on January 26th with the first edition of 500 copies to be pressed on 150-gram colored vinyl and housed in deluxe heavy weight gatefold tip-on jacket with newly commissioned art by Adam Burke.

Speaking about lending his voice to Casting the Runes, Warner states, “I was brought up only with radio, so it means so much to me to be able to imagine for myself what is being presented. And we can all imagine differently what is being presented to us via audio and radio, and that’s what the magic of it is – our own imaginations are able to take over. As an actor (and a voice actor, sometimes), I’m so glad to be able to contribute to peoples’ visual take on whatever it is we’re presenting. I just think it’s so invaluable, you know – the images and dreams in the mind.

You can follow Cadabra through their official website, Twitter, and Instagram. To order any of their records, head on to their online store.

Synopsis:
When the population of Los Angeles is vacuumed off the face of the Earth, Detective Mark Corley storms his way onto an alien ship to rescue his estranged son.

Check Out Episode 1 of the New VR/360 App Narrative Series Find Me

Published

on

Let me get this out of the way right off the top. I’m not really into the whole VR/360 experience. I’ve tried it out and it’s cool and all, but I’m not sold just yet.

That said, if you are into such games/experiences, you might want to check out “Find Me”.

The mobile app is a 360/VR narrative series from BlackBoxTV, James McFadden, Eric Jacks & Collab, as well as #YouTubeSpaceLA and The Los Angeles Times.

Each episode features visual codes and puzzles for you to solve, unlocking additional content and information available only in the app. That is until IRL gameplay begins in Los Angeles on December 25th and the app becomes your key to unlock locations in the real world.

“Find Me” will have one winner with a one-of-a-kind prize for the person who “finds” and frees the main protagonist Julia Zamora (played by Madison Lawlor) via the app.

Again, I’m not into these VR/360 apps but if you are – or want to try one out – I highly suggest taking on “Find Me”.

You can watch “Find Me – Episode 1” below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!

Get the “Find Me” App for iOS HERE and Android HERE.
