Can it get any easier for kids today? (In best crusty old man voice) “Back in my day we actually had to go to the theater to see a movie…none of this VHS, DVD nonsense.” And now, thanks to FlickLaunch, we don’t even need to trouble ourselves with that VHS, DVD nonsense. Just sign on to Facebook. and you’re able to check out the premiere of The Perfect House.

The Perfect House is a horror-thriller opening to Facebook members worldwide on October 1, 2011. FlickLaunch is a brilliant new platform that allows independent films to be shown directly on Facebook, giving filmmakers access to the massive potential audience the social network offers. You just have to provide your own popcorn.

Directed by Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent and starring Monique Parent, Felissa Rose, Will Robertson, Andrea Vahl, Chris Raab, Jonathan Tiersten and John Philbin, The Perfect House will be available for viewing on the film’s Facebook fan page.

From the Press Release
FlickLaunch, the first movie distribution platform built on Facebook for independent filmmakers, will premiere the horror thriller The Perfect House on October 1, 2011, as a 7-day rental on the film’s Facebook fanpage.

This new platform enables independent filmmakers to market to and access a global audience through Facebook without the prohibitive costs of traditional and outdated distribution. For a $5 “ticket price,” the movie will be viewed in its entirety and in full screen. Rather than go the traditional distribution route, the filmmakers for The Perfect House preferred to partner with FlickLaunch to engage moviegoers with a more scalable distribution model.

“We see a great opportunity to help these filmmakers get their films seen by offering this powerful transactional VOD distribution platform,” remarked Craig Tanner, Co-Founder and CEO of FlickLaunch. “Currently, many independent films are not lucky enough to secure distribution from a major distributor and rarely have a meaningful marketing budget to reach a mass audience. FlickLaunch provides an immediate solution to filmmakers for both of these issues.”

“Partnering with FlickLaunch to be the first new released film on Facebook is something we are extremely excited and proud of,” says Kris Hulbert, writer, producer, and co-director of The Perfect House. “As soon as FlickLaunch announced their video platform during our post-production, I immediately saw we were in a special position, and the value to release our film in this new distribution model was enormous.”

In The Perfect House, newlyweds Mike and Marisol (Will Robertson and Andrea Vahl) are given a tour of their dream home by a perky real estate agent (Monique Parent), and they soon find out their perfect house might just have a foreboding past. The ugly horrors of this house are revealed through three original tales of terror detailing the grim circumstances of the previous occupants. Done as an anthology, each short story in this homage to horror emulates the story and shooting styles of specific time periods in cinematic horror history.

Prior to the October 1st premiere, The Perfect House filmmakers will take it on a barnstorming 30-city tour. This reality-style tour will feature free screenings and a must-see tour bus and will showcase the cast and crew on an adventure they hope to share with horror fans around the country.

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

Published

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? 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.
