If you’ve been following the frequent blogs of director Darren Bousman concerning his latest film, 11 11 11, then you’re aware of two things … 1 – the movie looks really badass and 2 – the filming of it was in and of itself … shall we say … quite the experience.

Bousman filled in a few new haunting details on his 11 11 11 Blog:

“This house was about 40 minutes outside of Barcelona, in a small village that sat mere inches from the Mediterranean Sea… The location itself was beautiful… Hell, the HOUSE itself was beautiful…

But the moment you drove up to its rusted gates… There was something…. ELSE…

When we left the house after our second walk-through – I found the landlord standing on the beach smoking a cigarette… He was an intense man… Didn’t smile a lot… In fact – he didn’t smile at all. I think this is what concerned me the most. Even the most straight faced, and serious of people smile… But not him. He seemed worried that we were here… His being worried – worried me.

That afternoon – the landlord directed us to a local restaurant. We all walked, and he joined us. While at lunch, I asked if someone would ask the Landlord the history of the house… (I don’t speak Spanish – so all of this was being done through translators).

I will never forget his response…

With cold, almost hollow eyes he looked directly at me and said something in Spanish. It was translated back to me. “Are you sure you really want to know?”

How could I not?! I mean… come on… I nodded…

For the next ten minutes – the man talked. Never once smiling… never once breaking eye contact with me. Part of me felt it was a warning… Part of me thought it was all a prank – scare the American…

The following weeks would prove his story to be anything but a joke.

As his story was translated back to me – I felt myself becoming increasingly more and more uncomfortable.

The Landlord’s tale started back in the early 1900′s. A Spanish Marquis purchased the house for himself, his young daughter, and his brother to move into. In 1917 the neighbors had noticed that the Marquis’ daughter was never around. They inquired, and he would tell them that she was with her mother on vacation.

However as the year passed, the neighbors became increasingly more concerned as the daughter never returned. Soon thereafter it was discovered that the daughter WAS NOT at the Mother’s – and the Mother had gone to the police, fearing something had happened after she had stopped hearing from her.

An investigation was launched in early 1918. Later that year, the Marquis’ brother came forward and admitted to killing the girl ‘accidentally.’ The Marquis, fearing for his political career – and in order to protect his brother – helped cover up the death of the girl.

Both men were arrested…

By 1920 – the house was empty – and became a local legend within the community that the brother was into the Occult, and the daughter did not ‘accidentally’ die – but instead was sacrificed.

Now… How much of that above story is true?

Maybe none of it…

However one thing that was clear – the Landlord believed the story.

After the tragic death of his wife and child, famed American author Joseph Crone travels from the United States to Barcelona, Spain, to reunite with his estranged brother, Samuel, and dying father, Richard.

Curiosity quickly turns to obsession, and Joseph soon realizes that this number holds a horrific meaning not only to himself but possibly to all of religion. Isolated in a foreign country with only the support of his companion, Sadie, Joseph soon realizes that 11/11/11 is more than just a date; it’s a WARNING!

George A. Romero’s Daughter, Tina, Wrote a Script For Queens of the Dead




The loss last year of director George A. Romero was a huge blow to the horror community, as well as the filmmaking community at large. The passing of the man responsible for creating the modern day zombie and whose work influenced “The Walking Dead”, Dead Alive, 28 Days Later, and Jordan Peele’s Get Out was felt far and wide but we take solace knowing that his work and legacy will live on forever.

Something that brings a smile to my face is hearing that his daughter, Tina, who DJ’s under the name DJ TRx, has written a screenplay for a zombie film that is called Queens of the Dead. And yes, it’s very gay! Romero has not only written the script but also plans on directing the film herself.

Romero tells The Saunder Blog about the film, saying, “Queens of the Dead is a fusion of two huge parts of my world: zombies and Gay nightlife. It’s a tribute to my father as well as my entrée into the genre he grandfathered. I can’t say too much yet, but what I can tell you is that this film will have all the hallmarks of a George A. Romero classic: farce, politics, heroes, assholes, and most importantly, herds of silly and slow moving walkers that you can’t help but love. But I’m doing it Tina-style, and bringing the glitter, choreography, queers & queens.

Romero’s father always brought some sort of social message into his work, so to hear that she will continue that tradition is inspiring, especially since it comes on a topic that is so discussed and topical.

Wanna See Something REALLY Scary?

Wanna See Something REALLY Scary? Local 58 Contingency Emergency Broadcast



Wanna See Something REALLY Scary

“Wanna see something REALLY scary?”

To horror fans who came of age in the 1980s, the line above instantly evokes memories of Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the opening scene from Twilight Zone: The Movie. Now, on a bi-monthly basis, I’ll be asking, “Wanna see something REALLY scary?” with the goal of shocking you with chilling footage plumbed from the darkest corners of YouTube.

As a child of the Cold War born in the 1970s and traumatized by films like The Day After and Threads, I remember immediately panicking every time an Emergency Broadcast broke into a TV show I was watching. That alarming tone made my stomach drop and in the moments before it was confirmed to be “only a test” I had already imagined a barrage of nuclear warheads bursting overhead.

My heart went out to the residents of Hawaii who, due to a false alarm, believed a missile attack was imminent this weekend. For almost 40 minutes, families scrambled into fallout shelters, bathrooms, and even storm drains, believing war had begun between the United States and North Korea. Even after the all-clear was announced and the warning revealed as a mistake, nerves were severely rattled. I can only imagine the potential long-term damage done to the psyches of Hawaii’s youngest residents.

For a taste of the pandemonium that occurred, check out an excerpt from CNN’s reporting below.

While the shock must have been unprecedented for most, a bizarre alert that accidentally aired in the late 1960s puts the Hawaii debacle to shame. What viewers of a local station saw just before the end of programming at 3 am was a message announcing the fall of the US Government, and included instructions for committing suicide rather than surrendering to enemy forces.

Wanna see something REALLY scary?

The message bore the seal of The U.S. Department for the Preservation of American Dignity, included a statement from President Lyndon B. Johnson, and warned that failure to commit suicide as instructed would have consequences:

“Your local law enforcement has been ordered to ensure your compliance,” the message cautioned. “It is against the law to delay.” The final instructions remind adult viewers to put down their children and pets first while promising “There is nothing to fear.” Though the station later posted a statement ensuring viewers the message was a hoax, the potential loss of life this broadcast could have inspired is staggering. Have a look:

If the Local 58 Contingency, as it’s become known, seems too outlandish to be true, that’s because it isn’t. Though the video doesn’t include an admission of fiction, it’s written and directed by Kris Straub. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because he’s the writer of the popular creepypasta Candle Cove, recently adapted into a TV series on SyFy.

Still, the vintage look of the Local 58 Contingency, not to mention the current climate of heightened tensions between American and a rogue nuclear nation, make this video a truly terrifying viewing experience.
