Post Thumb:


Screamfest LA 2013 Exclusive: Opening Night Photo GalleryScreamfest LA 2013 kicked off with a bloody bang last night in North Hollywood, CA, at the Laemmle NoHo 7, and we were there to shoot the black carpet, catch the premiere of Ben Ketai’s feature Beneath, and hit the opening night party. Read on!

Gracing the carpet, in addition to director Ketai, were Beneath cast members Kelly Noonan, Joey Kern, Eric Etebari, Lauren Gores and Rene Rivera, along with producers Kelly Wagner and Nick Phillips. Joining them for opening night were the following Screamfest 2013 film selection attendees (take a breath): director Matt Eskandari and writer Matt Lawson of The Gauntlet, The Banishing’s director Erlingur Ottar Thoroddsen and writer Brian McAuley, The Summoners‘ filmmaker Christian Ackerman, director Paul Hyett (The Seasoning House), Frost producer Ingvar Thordarson, director Samuel Gonzalez Jr. and actress Danielle Adams of Woodland Heights, Luna director Antonio Perez, director of Cannon Fodder Eitan Gafny, director Gavin Williams (Sleepworking), director John Fitzpatrick (Skypemare), filmmaker Michael S.

Also on hand were King of Miseries producer Michael Hayes and writer and director Brian Netto and producer and co-writer Adam Schindler of Delivery, as were actresses Cerina Vincent (Skypemare) and Bobbi Sue Luther (Night of the Demons).

Following the sold-out screening of the claustrophobic and intense “miners trapped by a mine collapse” flick Beneath, the festivities continued at the nearby The Brickyard pub with an open bar, on-site masseuses, an entirely cool photo booth courtesy of Screamfest and co-sponsor FEARnet, and plenty of schmoozing.

Said Beneath director Ketai following the screening, “I’m overwhelmed by the love and support from friends and family that came out to the premiere of Beneath at Screamfest. I am beyond humbled by the incredible group of people that, after all these years, I still get to call my friends. Thank you for helping me have an incredible evening.”

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



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…



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.

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…

I wish I lived in or around South Carolina because being in this new Halloween would be a f*cking dream come true. If you’re in the area, get on it. You owe it to the rest of us! Haha?

How excited would you be to be an extra in this new Halloween? Let us know below!
