Tim Sullivan is keeping extremely busy these days with Chillerama getting ready to make its debut in a few weeks, but the man isn’t stopping there. Word just came in that Sullivan will be bringing previews of both One for the Road and Cut/Print to the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear!

From the Press Release: Tim Sullivan will be attending the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear to host two exclusive previews of the long awaited CUT/PRINT and ONE FOR THE ROAD, the first productions under his “Tim Sullivan Presents” banner.

A study in darkness and endurance, writer/director Nathaniel Nose’s CUT/PRINT follows a morally corrupt filmmaker (played by Vince Orlando, scheduled to attend the screening) who embarks on an exploitive documentary about serial killers in the hope he will draw out the real deal. He gets his wish, evoking the perverse, spanking brand new celluloid bad guy – THE MAESTRO. Promises Sullivan: “No one will forget the final five minutes of CUT/PRINT, assuming they can sit through them.”

Based on the short story by Stephen King, writer/director Paul Ward’s ONE FOR THE ROAD serves as a coda to King’s classic SALEM’S LOT and stars genre favorites Reggie Bannister (Phantasm) and Adam Robitel (2001 Maniacs) as two Maine locals whose lives are disrupted by a mysterious stranger whose wife and young son have been stranded in the infamous Lot…

These screenings mark the first opportunity for audiences to view either film, both of which evoke shades of horror decidedly darker then the ‘splatstick’ shocks of Sullivan’s 2001 MANIACS franchise and “I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR” segment of the upcoming horror comedy anthology feature CHILLERAMA.

(Sullivan will also be hosting the uncut festival version of TEENAGE WEREBEAR along with Adam Rifkin’s WADZILLA in a special Rue Morgue CHILLERAMA teaser screening.)

CUT/PRINT screens SATURDAY, AUGUST 27th at 3:00 PM in ROOM 711
ONE FOR THE ROAD screens FRIDAY, AUGUST 26th at 1:00 PM as well as SUNDAY, AUGUST 29th at 1:00 PM (Both in Room 711)
WADZILLA and WEREBEARS screen FRIDAY, AUGUST 26th at 12:00 noon as well as SUNDAY, AUGUST 29th at 1:00 PM (Both in Room 711)

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.

The Housemaid Haunts a New Trailer



Here’s the thing… if we had the choice between cleaning up our own house or being haunted by a vengeful spectral servant of sorts, well… just hand us a friggin’ mop, wouldja already? Still, in the case of The Housemaid, it looks like nothing is gonna stop her from sensing shivers! Dig on this new trailer.

Derek Nguyen directs the flick, which stars Kate Nhung, Jean-Michel Richaud, Kim Xuan, Svitlana Kovalenko, and Rosie Fellner. Look for IFC Midnight’s release of The Housemaid coming to select theaters, VOD, and via Digital platforms in the U.S. on February 16, 2018.

A forbidden passion awakens vengeful spirits within a haunted mansion in this bloodcurdling, erotic tour-de-force.

Vietnam, 1953: Linh (Nhung Kate), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud). Soon, a torrid love affair develops between the two – a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent’s dead wife, who won’t rest until blood flows.

Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam’s colonial past while delivering heart-stopping scares.
