Danger After Dark Announces New Releases and Distribution DealThe good folks over at Danger After Dark have been busy, and the fruits of their labor can be seen in two big announcements just released today. Not only do they have two new titles they are making available to our eager, grubby hands, they have a new distribution deal in place to spread more carnage around.

Read on to get the details on Danger After Dark’s release of Suicide Club, Satan Hates You (featuring Doctor Gash’s favorite girl Debbie Rochon!) and a new distribution deal with Mondo Macabro. And while you’re at it, head over to their Facebook Page and give them a Like!

From the Press Release
Danger After Dark Releases Suicide Club and Satan Hates You
Danger After Dark is thrilled to announce that the cult-classic, unrated version of Suicide Club is available now to stream and download via Amazon.com, iTunes.com, and TLACult.com. Directed by the prolific Sion Sono (Cold Fish, Love Exposure, Strange Circus) the film has cultivated a rabid, loyal fan base and with it themes of suicide, anti-establishment rebelliousness and nefarious government/cultural witchery, the film is even more relevant than ever.

Suicide Club (Jisatsu Sākuru) aka Suicide Circle Synopsis
Directed by Sion Sono (2002, 100 min., Japanese with English Subtitles)
A wave of unexplainable suicides sweeps across Tokyo after 54 smiling high school girls join hands and throw themselves from a subway platform into an oncoming train. Detective Kuroda (Ryo Ishibashi from Audition) and the rest of the police force are baffled as the bloodbath triggers a wave of suicides across the city. When a cryptic phone call tips off police to a strange website that appears to be tracking the suicides before they happen, the question becomes, are they really suicides at all? This outrageously bizarre, wicked social critique in the form of a creepy and enigmatic detective mystery examines the despair of the disaffected Japanese youth and the influence of pop culture on their lives. From international film festival favorite to cult sensation, Suicide Club is a study of contemporary morality that is gruesome, darkly comic and vividly original.

Watch Suicide Club NOW on Amazon.com, iTunes.com, or TLACult.com.

Also from Danger After Dark, find out why Satan Hates You in the latest gore masterpiece directed by James Felix McKenney and featuring a cavalcade of genre stars including Larry Fessenden (I Sell the Dead), Debbie Rochon (Toxie Twins: Toxic Avenger V), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Angus Scrimm (Phantasm) and Reggie Bannister (Bubba Ho-tep). Buy the DVD or watch online at Amazon.com.

Danger After Dark to Distribute Mondo Macabro Library

Don’t Open Till Christmas Synopsis
Don’t Open Till Christmas, directed by and starring Edmund Purdom, celebrates Christmas time in London – a season of good will to all men and full of joyous celebrations, quality family time and luxurious presents. This year, it’s also time for a masked maniac to be let loose on the streets. His intended victims are chosen at random but they all have one thing in common: they are dressed in the flowing white beard and bright red robes of Santa Claus! With 14 Santa Clauses already dead and only three killing days left until Christmas, the police are baffled as the horrific death toll continues to rise. From the producers of Pieces and Slaughter High, this rarely-seen flick features very graphic and disturbing violence – including castration, mutilation – and some phenomenal nudity, courtesy of Pat Astley (Mr. Grace’s nurse from Are You Being Served?). Suffice it to say, your holidays will never be the same again!

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.
