The 17th Door Opens to a Haunted Prison

Published

on

Prison can be a scary place, but the people behind The 17th Door haunted attraction are looking to make it a lot scarier for Halloween! Read on for the details, and if you’re in or near Fullerton, California, start making your plans to attend now!

From the Press Release:
The West Fullerton Shopping Center is now home to one of the scariest, most intense, and most interactive haunted houses in the country. The 26,000 guests who attended The 17th Door last Halloween season will be thrilled to learn the creators have an all-new prison maze and a virtual reality experience (as an add-on) in store for 2017. This year’s haunt will be larger and longer (over 35 minutes), more intense, and more suspenseful with a new theme, new location, all-new rooms, and more innovative scares!

Will you be able to make it through all 35 minutes of terror and escape all 17 doors? Or will you cry “Mercy?”

The Story:
And so it continues… Our Paula has committed a heinous crime, and it is now time to pay the price. A lengthy sentence to be served in the most gruesome and hellish of prisons. Much worse than the troubled and miserable life of our depressed college sophomore.

Welcome to Perpetuum Penitentiary, a place of darkness born only in nightmares. For within these stone walls, you will meet true suffering and despair. Prayers for mercy unanswered. Evil pervading its every space. Paula’s space. This detour through hell is her new reality. The question is… will it be yours?

The sadistic warden has agreed to unsupervised visitation. Go cautiously, one-by-one, as the residents of Perpetuum have no concept of confinement and no intentions of behaving. And they are thirsty, longing for the smell and taste of new blood. No one escapes. Your only hope is to survive. Are you scared? You will be.

“I’m very excited about the new theme this year,” said The 17th Door co-owner Heather Luther. “All-new sets. New characters. New innovations. New scares. New everything! Guests can expect things to be very very different, and of course they should expect the unexpected!”

Pre-sale tickets for this year’s season are now available online at the17thdoor.com. Act fast because they sell out quickly!

The 17th Door is designed for a mature audience, preferably 16 years of age and older, as guests will find themselves in intense situations. All guests must still sign a liability waiver, and the actors are allowed to touch guests. At any point during the haunted house experience, guests may use the safe word “Mercy” to be escorted out. They will be given the option to rejoin their group in the next room or leave the haunt entirely.

The 17th Door 2017 Haunt Experience Dates:
September 22-23 and 29-30
October 1, 5-8, 12-15, 18-22, 24-31

Location:
1851 W. Orangethorpe Ave., Fullerton, CA 92833. Near the corner of Brookhurst St. and W. Orangethorpe Ave., just north of the 91 & 5 freeways (exit Brookhurst). Same building as The 99 Cent Store. Park & enter in the back of the building.

Another WolfCop Gets Another Poster via The Dude Designs

Published

on

It was only last week that we shared the bloody new trailer for writer-director Lowell Dean’s upcoming sequel to his hit horror-comedy flick WolfCop.

Today we have another poster for Another WolfCop.

This new poster comes to us from one of my current favorite poster artists, Tom “The Dude” Hodge. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, you surely know his work. To refamiliarize yourself, you can check out more of his posters right here.

Below you will find his new poster for Another WolfCop, along with the flick’s newest trailer. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments!

The film is written and directed by Lowell Dean, produced by Bernie Hernando, Deborah Marks, and Hugh Patterson, and distributed worldwide by Cineplex.

Another WolfCop co-stars Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, and Serena Miller. The film also features special appearances from Canadian music icon Gowan and legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was executive produced by Sean Buckley, J. Joly, Bill Marks, Brian Wideen, Michael Kennedy, and Michael Hirsch.

The film is slated for a wide Cineplex theatrical release on Friday, December 8, 2017, with the film seeing a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital home entertainment release through A71 and Black Fawn in 2018.

Synopsis:
A month has passed since the eclipse transformed hard-drinking Officer Lou Garou into the crime-fighting hellion WolfCop. Although the Shape Shifters controlling the town have been extinguished, Woodhaven is far from returning to normal. Lou’s liquor-fueled antics and full moon outbursts are seriously testing his relationship with Officer Tina Walsh – the new Chief of Police. An old friend has mysteriously reappeared with a truly bizarre secret to share, and a homicidal new villain has emerged from the shadows looking to finish what the Shape Shifters started. To defeat this lethal adversary, it will take more than a lone wolf packing a pistol.

Prepare for the next chapter of WolfCop that will be more dirty and hairy than the original! Consider yourself warned.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!
