Horror Needs a Hand Checking In to The ShelterIt’s not every day that we help promote fundraising campaigns through sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo as there are simply too many of them. But the one that’s come to our attention today looks to be one of the gems of the bunch!

Read on for all the details, and check out the pitch video for The Shelter below!

From the Press Release
In the year 2000, John Fallon founded the horror website Arrow In The Head, which at the time was one of the first of its kind. Ultimately the site helped pioneer online horror reviewing and news reporting and garnered a massive following within the horror community including many popular horror filmmakers like James Wan, Eli Roth, Darren Bousman, Eric Red, Patrick Lussier, Mick Garris, and Monster Man director Michael Davis, who once said, “John shouldn’t be writing about movies; he should be making them!”

On top of that, John has acted in a myriad of horror films (Saw 2, Alone in the Dark, 100 Feet, Dead Shadows), has six produced feature-length screenplays under his belt (Deaden, Billy Trigger, American Muscle) and directed the award-winning horror short The Red Hours.

Today, Bruise Productions and Bigfoot Productions announce the launch of their IndieGoGo campaign to help fund John Fallon’s feature-length directorial debut entitled The Shelter. Fallon also wrote the screenplay and will be producing alongside long-time producing partner Donny Broussard and executive producer/actor Michael Pare (The Lincoln Lawyer, Eddie and the Cruisers), who will also be the lead in the film. VFX wiz Thomas Wilson (James Wan’s The Conjuring, Insidious: Chapter 2) will be handling the visual effects for the film.

Here are Pare’s thoughts on the project: “The Shelter tells a great and painful tragedy. Not about global disaster or war or economic collapse but of the individual human heart. The human heart and soul is what all art seeks to unravel. Guilt, regret and shame kill the heart and soul. When our lower animal nature dominates our character, our soul is lost.”

And here are John Fallon’s thoughts on his feature debut: “The Shelter will present you with an eyeful in terms of striking imagery. It will scare the pants [off] of you as much as it will make you think and move you. This project is the most personal one that I’ve ever written, is unlike anything I’ve done in the past and I believe it is my best work thus far. It’s my passion project to say the least.”

Through The Shelter’s IndieGoGo Campaign page, fans can contribute funds towards helping The Shelter reach principal photography, and contributors may receive an executive producer credit, be a part of the actual production or partake in the wrap party with cast and crew amongst other cool prizes!

Synopsis
On a star-filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Pare) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two-story house with the lights on and inviting open front door. He strolls on in, thinking he just caught a lucky break, and for a while it would appear as though he did. But soon enough he realizes that the house won’t let him leave as its doors are all locked while its windows cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. What does it want from him? Will he survive the ordeal?

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
