The Monster Channel Broadcasting Live From HorrorHound All Weekend!



Last year the folks at Fourth Castle Micromedia, home of FearWerx and EMCE Toys, celebrated the 100th anniversary of the monster movie with a special weekend-long marathon of horror movies hosted LIVE from the HorrorHound Weekend convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Monster Channel Broadcasting Live From Horrorhound All Weekend!Each film was introduced by one of the many local “horror hosts” who gathered there that weekend to honor the original horror host, Vampira. Elvira and George Romero topped off the event by hosting a special screening of Night of the Living Dead. Over 10,000 people gathered around their computers to watch, chatting with each other in the built-in player.

Well, it’s gonna happen again. The Monster Channel, the 24/7 Internet horror channel that grew out of last year’s endeavor, will be webcasting LIVE from this year’s HorrorHound Weekend event in Indianapolis. Unlike last year, which followed a very formal TV-style structure with hosts coming in for a minute or two, this weekend will be as close to a televised convention as possible with several events in the auditorium being broadcast, interspersed with horror films, trailers, specials and live appearances from horror hosts and celebrities at the event.

In addition to the classic films MCTV has shown since its launch in January, the overnight hours will feature rare, never-before broadcast films especially for true fans of postmodern classics.

Friday night from midnight on will be six hours of Mondo Bizarro features, starting with the strange Turkish version of The Exorcist, and followed by two more recent foreign horror films never seen before. Splatterday Night will feature 8 hours of classic 80s VHS-era slasher films including 1982’s Pieces and the Argento classic Deep Red.

That is, of course, unless the hosts get all, let’s say, ‘enhanced’ during the night,” said Fourth Castle President Joe Sena. “Then they’re very likely to interrupt the films and turn the cameras on whatever parties they’re attending. Or getting thrown out of.” Sena goes on to caution that most of the weekend’s content, particularly whatever goes live in the late hours, will not be for family viewing. “I may need to shop my resume around when this weekend is over,” he laments.

Whatever happens, YOU can be a part of it, even it you’re miles away from the event. Even during its regular programming, the coolest feature of The Monster Channel is that viewers can interact with thousands of their fellow fans in the chatroom right next to the player window. Many of the hosts and celebrities will interact directly with the chatters.

So, if you want to experience the madness of a horror convention, enjoy classic, cheesy and rare horror films with fellow fans, all without the risk of actually being arrested, tune in to The Monster Channel starting 8PM EST Friday night and watch all weekend!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez



One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!
