Ho-Ho Horrible Imaginings Brings Yuletide Screams



Picture it. It is a week before Halloween, or even earlier. You walk to the store to check out some decorations and toys to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve and get greeted by Christmas trees and beaming Saint Nick statues. Yes, the encroachment of the expanding Christmas season on our dark holiday in October raises my cackles every time! That’s why Horrible Imaginings Film Festival fights back with Christmas-themed horrors in December!

Ho Ho Horrible Imaginings 2017 returns to San Diego’s Digital Gym Cinema on Friday, December 15th, to deck the halls with screams of terror! In the past, we have screened such classics as Christmas Evil, Black Christmas, All Through the House, and Silent Night Bloody Night, as well as some great short films like “Treevenge” and “Do You Hear What I Hear!” This year, we have delved deep into the treasure trove of bloody goodness! We are showing a rarely-seen feature THAT WE ARE KEEPING A SECRET! That’s right! You don’t open gifts until the special day, so we are doing this the right way! No peeking!

Tickets include a Border-town holiday meal of tamales, Mexican hot chocolate, and more! Seating is super limited, so get your tickets now!

Check out the stocking-stuffer short films below:

From our friends at Ghost Party Pictures! A blind date takes a monstrous turn as a young couple meet on a cold Christmas night. With filmmakers in attendance!

When a couple of boys choose the secluded road beside it to park and make out, they end up on a ride they didn’t buy a ticket for.

Merry Xmas…Love, K

Watch a City Come Together and a Monster Created in These Videos From The Sinking City



I’ve been keeping a very close eye on Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which is a 3rd person horror adventure that takes place in a world that is as inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes as it is by H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch terrors. While still early in development, the team is beginning to share some pretty incredible things out of their offices (like these creepy statues) to keep the public up-to-date as well as show them just how much work goes into creating something so expansive and fascinating.

Today, I want to bring you a taste of the world that Frogwares is building through two videos. The first shows the process by which they created the actual city that the game takes place in. Obviously trying to hand create each and every building is a tedious process at best, nigh-well impossible task at its most realistic. Rather than attempt such a monumental undertaking, the team created a program that will build the city based on criteria that they set forth. It’s a very clever solution to a very real problem and the end result still feels like their personal touch is all over it.

The second video is a 3D time lapse of a monster as it goes from rough shape to a highly detailed, grotesquely designed monstrosity that is nothing short of nightmarish. It’s a chance to see how an artist creates something phenomenal from something so simple, each step adding a new layer of sickening, yet fascinating, macabre horror.

Jim Carrey and The Grinch Go Beyond Whoville



Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a regular holiday staple in many households, including my own. The cartoon is just brilliant; and truth be told, the live action film captured a great deal of the magic infused within the original tale due in no small part to an electric and manic portrayal of the title character by Jim Carrey.

A new video has surfaced courtesy of Nerdist that’s a joyous play on the Netflix flick Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton. Check it out below. It’s SO worth your time.
