The Castle Project: Denver's Haunted Mansion Set to Spook DVD and VOD October 1stA documentary about a mansion rumored to be haunted by ghosts with residents hearing mysterious baby cries in the cellar, tales of Satanism and mysterious deaths? Sign us up! That’s what we’ll get when The Castle Project: Denver’s Haunted Mansion hits DVD and VOD on October 1st.

According to the filmmakers, this isn’t based on a true story: It IS the true story. It’s a documentary about Denver’s historic Croke-Patterson Mansion, which has a long history of hauntings. The film is directed by and stars filmmaker Brian Higgins and his crew, who purchased the home for renovation but soon began to experience unexplainable phenomena. From there a documentary was born, and Cinema Libre is making sure everyone can see it.

From the Press Release
Would you buy a haunted house if it came on the market? Despite a colorful history involving Satanism, death, eerie noises and ghostly sightings, architect Brian Higgins and business partner Travis McAfoos were compelled to purchase the 19th century Croke-Patterson Mansion in Denver, Colorado. The Castle Project: Colorado’s Haunted Mansion is their odyssey into the paranormal as they renovate the stately brick mansion into a bed & breakfast. The documentary film will be available on DVD and VOD platforms on October 1, 2013, just in time for Halloween!

The building’s most notable haunting activity occurred during the 1970’s when the dwelling was undergoing renovations to convert it into office space, which some believed to have disturbed the spirits. After completing a day’s work, the construction crews would return the following day to find everything from the day before undone. After several such instances the contractor purchased a pair of Doberman Pinschers as guard dogs. Soon after, the workers arrived to find the dogs lying dead on the sidewalk after jumping from a closed third floor window.

It wasn’t long into the more modern renovations that architect Higgins’ crew started to notice some odd occurrences, and he picked up a camera, resulting in his directorial debut. “Once I had read all the stories on the Internet of the Croke-Patterson Mansion, I realized that somebody needed to make a movie about this. It seems like every past owner I came in contact with had a story to tell. Could there possibly be any truth to these stories?” asks director Higgins.

At the outset Higgins sets up a camera doubtful of discovering anything. After the discovery of a dead, mutilated cat followed by workers who claim to have seen ghostly apparitions, he moves into one of the upstairs bedrooms by his lonesome while the camera records. Soon bats are appearing from nowhere and he hears whispering voices through the halls. And then there’s an unexplained fire. Is the house really haunted?

Architectural clues and artifacts found within the walls and foundations allude to a very “otherworldly” blueprint, and soon paranormal and spiritual experts are brought in to investigate.

Check out the trailer and artwork below. VOD outlets include Hulu and Amazon Instant. For more info visit the official The Castle Project website and “like” The Castle Project on Facebook.

Titan’s Gothic Horror Series Alisik Gets Animated with a New Trailer

Published

on

Back in October we told you about Alisik, a Gothic tale from Titan Comics’ Statix Press imprint that explores the afterlife; and now we’re back with a new trailer for the series to share along with another cover and a few interior pages.

From the Press Release:
Written by Hubertus Rufledt with haunting art by Helge Vogt, Alisik is a cross between Emily the Strange and Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book – a beautiful dark and Gothic tale of mortality and what happens after death.

“Alisik started as a short animation I did during my time at Disney – something different, a bit darker, but not horror. Hubertus liked it so much that we wanted to make a comic series out of it,” said Alisik co-creator and artist Helge Vogt. “Alisik became a part of my life. It’s the best I’ve done so far, and I’m thrilled that it’s coming out in English!

Featuring an all-new cover by superstar artist Junko Mizuno (Ravina the Witch?), Alisik #1 will hit stores and digital devices on February 28, 2018.

Synopsis:
When Alisik wakes up alone in a cemetery, she thinks she’s in the middle of a nightmare. Terrified, she flees into the night but realizes she is invisible to everyone she meets. She really is dead, with no memory of how it happened… and only the ghostly residents of the graveyard can help her unravel the mystery of her afterlife.
