Knock Knock! Who’s There? An 80s-Inspired Horror Comedy



The 80s have never been hotter! Hell, not even in the 80s! The decade of high hair gave us plenty of horror classics, some of which are revered and emulated by younger filmmakers around the world. Case in point: the new short film Knock Knock, which was inspired by the love of VHS monster movies like Fright Night, The Monster Squad, and Evil Dead II with a dash of Scooby-Doo and a bitchin’ John Carpenter-esque soundtrack!

From writer/director/producer Toby Canto, Knock Knock stars Saul Arteta, Rachel Atterson, Lucas Ayoub, and Jennifer Bennett. Even cooler? You can check it out on Vimeo now!

Knock Knock tells the story of down-on-his-luck former boxer Sam Grant, who one night finds himself caught in a whirlwind of conjecture and conundrum as his colorful and quirky neighbors come to him with scary tales of their apartment’s mysterious new resident. Inspired by the retro horror classics of VHS days gone by, Knock Knock is sure to be a treat for any horror fan and aficionado.

Shriekfest Announces its 2018 Call for Entries!



Hey, you! Yeah, you! The one sitting there with a newly minted horror flick you’re trying to get attention to! Shriekfest, the Los Angeles International Film Festival & Screenplay Competition, has just announced that they’re already looking for 2018 entries!

Read on to find out how you can submit your flick and more!

Shriekfest, the Los Angeles Horror/SciFi Film Festival continues its tradition as Los Angeles’ premier horror film event, presenting an exciting program of films each fall with beautiful Los Angeles as its backdrop. Now, in its 18th year, Shriekfest L.A takes place at the legendary Raleigh Studios, which is the largest independent studio operator in the country.

Shriekfest Orlando takes place at the famous Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, which was originally founded in 1923. They offer filmmakers and film fans alike an ideal setting in two world-famous cities. Both established and emerging filmmakers gain media exposure, connect with the region’s diverse audiences, and participate in an acclaimed event attended by industry professionals as well as horror and sci-fi fans. Every film accepted into Shriekfest has the opportunity to screen on both coasts for the price of one admission! Over the past seventeen years, Shriekfest has welcomed numerous indie icons into its family, and they are always looking to add to the Shriekfest Family!

They are looking for original films and screenplays and are accepting them in five categories: narrative feature, narrative short, narrative super short, music video, feature screenplay, and short screenplay. And in these genres: horror, comedy horror, thriller, sci-fi, and fantasy.

Festival Founder and Director Denise Gossett says, “We are already planning some exciting things for our 18th year! Last year’s festival was a great success. We had our biggest audience yet, and we had more than 55 filmmakers/screenwriters in attendance. Plus, we were able to introduce some amazing indie horror films to Los Angeles and Orlando!

HOW TO ENTER: You’ll find the entry form and additional information at!

Golden Globes TV Edition: Stranger Things and Kyle MacLachlan Score Nominations



Yesterday we brought you guys the exciting news that two genre films – Get Out and The Shape of Water – scored big nominations at this year’s Golden Globes.

Why did we split all of this up, you may ask?

Most sites are grouping all of these nominations together, and we felt that while it is exciting enough for one quality genre offering to get some awards love, multiple nominations each deserve their own sets of Dread Central love as well.

That said, we’re going to combine this next one. Forgive us. We’ll call this the “TV Edition.”

Anyhow, it looks like Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ original series “Stranger Things” got a nomination for Best Television Series – Drama, and Mr. Kyle MacLachlan score a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his dual role in David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return”!

Pretty cool, huh?

I think both nominations are very well deserved with “Stranger Things” Season 2 being one of my favorite genre offerings all year and “Twin Peaks: The Return” being one of the others. Congrats on both counts!

Make sure to hit us up and let us know if you get as excited about genre awards love as much as we do in the comments below!

The Golden Globes airs live on NBC January 7, 2018, at 5:00 PM PT/8:00 PM ET.
