Help The Movie Crypt to Save The Yorkies AGAIN!

Published

on

Last year Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Arwen, and many others did something incredibly cool by holding a weekend-long event as a means to Save the Yorkies! You know, those cute little four-legged things which look like Chewbacca was shrunk down to fun-size! This December they’re doing it again.

Over the weekend of December 8th, Joe, Arwen, and I will be doing our 2nd annual 48-hour LIVE Movie Crypt charity marathon to benefit SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE,” says Green. “We’re staying awake so that they don’t get put to sleep. Many of you joined us for last year’s event when we raised about $14,000 for the dog rescue. Not only was it the most amount of money that the rescue had ever received from a single fundraiser, but the broadcast also broke the world record for the longest ever live podcast.”

Green continues, “If you’re unfamiliar with the 48-hour benefit event… Joe, Arwen, and I stay on the air live from Friday at 5pm until Sunday at 5pm, going around the clock with an array of special guests joining us non-stop. Featuring extensive artist interviews, musical performances, improv/stand-up comedy, script readings (last year’s live reading of a never before seen early draft of THE GOONIES was a huge highlight), movie commentaries, clairvoyant/tarot card readings, and more… ANYTHING goes! It is an incredibly fun event to take part in, and best of all – it is all to help save dogs! SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE is a non-profit rescue that uses all of the money donated to help foster, shelter, and provide direly needed medical attention to rescued/abused Yorkies nationwide. We know there are countless other charities out there doing amazing work for animals and people, but since our show’s mascot Arwen is a Yorkie and since SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE is a smaller, independent rescue mission that is fully reliant on donations alone to operate – this is the charity that we benefit with this event each year.”

And boy do they need help! Some of the stories are absolutely horrific – so I’ll spare you the massive list of upsetting examples. However, one positive story that I’d like to share from last year’s marathon (because it has a happy ending) is the story of “Phantom.” A 6-month-old Yorkshire terrier, “Phantom” was rescued from her abusive owner after he held her face against a burning a stove in an effort to stop her from barking at the front door. “Phantom” was in desperate need of immediate surgery to save her nasal cavity and vision. Using funds from last year’s marathon, SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE was able to get “Phantom” into surgery the very next morning after the marathon. Today “Phantom” is living a wonderful life with her new, forever family. She can SEE, BREATHE, and TASTE; and most importantly, she’ll never again know fear, pain, or suffering. I wish I could say that “Phantom” is the most severe example of abuse that the rescue deals with, but sadly she is not. Again, I’ll spare you the many other horrifying examples set to Sarah McLachlan songs and instead just focus on the fact that together we are able to make a huge difference and provide a second chance for these wonderful animals. As dog rescuers and gigantic animal lovers ourselves, Joe and I hope with all of our hearts that you will consider joining us and taking part in this year’s event!

The special 3-day live broadcast will be available to listen to directly on GeekNation.com. Listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions and post comments for Green, Lynch, and their guests through their Twitter accounts (@Adam_Fn_Green, @TheJoeLynch, and @MovieCrypt) as well as watch and take part in live Periscope broadcasts on Green’s Periscope channel (@Adam_Fn_Green) throughout the weekend. “The Movie Crypt’s” dedicated link to donate directly to “Save a Yorkie Rescue, Inc.” will be posted and given out consistently throughout the 3-day broadcast.

Exclusive: Terror Universal Dare You to Look Through the Mirrors

Published

on

Alright horror metalheads, it’s time to raise those devil horns and get ready for some Terror Universal! On hand we’ve got the exclusive video premiere for the track “Through the Mirrors”, which comes from the band’s album Make Them Bleed. Directed by Wacy Jahn, the video mixes band performance with the hallucinations and troubles of a man who clearly has some issues going on.

Jahn tells us about making the video, saying, “As a director, I was given the freedom to give my visual interpretation of what the song meant to me personally. The inner self that tortures the outer self into being something different no matter the cost. Now mix a twist of insanity into the recipe and you get the “Through the Mirrors” official Terror Universal music video.

Band member Massacre adds, “I am very pumped to be releasing the “Through The Mirrors” video, as this track is one of my favorite songs on our new album ‘Make Them Bleed’. This song showcases many of Terror Universal’s diverse sounds, as it’s brutally heavy, and also has a very anthemic and memorable chorus.

Made up of current and past members of Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body, Terror Universal is a metal band dedicated to combining their love of all things heavy with their passion for horror. Make Them Bleed also features guest appearances from bassists John Moyer (Disturbed) and Tony Campos (Static-X).

You can buy Make Them Bleed on Bandcamp.

The Sinking City Update Dives Into the Cthulhu Mythos That Drives the Game

Published

on

If you’ve been following our coverage of Frogwares’ The Sinking City, you’ll know that it’s probably my most anticipated game not just of the year but of a long, long time! An open world game that lives in the aesthetic and atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft? Consider me 100% hooked! This game ticks all the boxes of my love of horror and my love of gaming.

A new update video has been released and this one goes right into the ways that H.P. Lovecraft and his works directly influenced the game, the developers and the story players will experience. On top of that, it also goes into how Lovecraft’s themes inspired the creators at Frogwares to forge their own paths and create their own mythology and terror. It’s a wonderful video because we get to see these people take an established universe and build upon it with reverence, respect, and passion.

Seriously, if The Sinking City isn’t on your radar, you’re going to be missing out when it’s released.

Synopsis:
The Sinking City interprets and develops the themes that Lovecraft explored: the fear of monsters and the unknown, the search for occult truths and madness. In the game, players step into the shoes of a private detective investigating the disappearance of an expedition to the imaginary town of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont is a city experiencing unprecedented flooding due to supernatural forces, leaving a large portion of the city submerged. Secret societies, dangers, intrigues and monstrous creatures will stand in your way…
