Charlie's Farm Looks to Dethrone Horror HeavyweightsFew horror movie killers can rank among the top tier slaughter stars we’ve all come to love, but damn it, they try. Well, guess what, kids? Another is on his way, and one thing is certain: He has the girth to muscle in!

From the Charlie’s Farm Facebook page:

Since the 1970’s the world has been seen the rise of some of the most iconic killers, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and Thomas Hewitt (Leatherface). Australia has had its fair share of AMAZING horror films from Patrick, Lake Mungo, Snow Town, Razorback, The Loved Ones, and of course the legend himself “Greg McLean” with Wolf Creek and now Wolf Creek 2 to name only a few.

The problem is Australia has never had a killer with the status of the American killers; Voorhees has had over 160 kills in his career and is hands down one of the most feared killers on the planet.

Independent writer/director Chris Sun wants to change this and challenge these iconic characters with Australia’s newest slasher franchise, Charlie’s Farm.

Charlie Wilson (pictured; played by Nathan Jones – Troy, Conan and Mad Max – Fury Road) is not like any other killer out there, and Charlie’s Farm WILL bring OLD SCHOOL SLASHER FILMS back with a fresh killer to the big screen.

We have award-winning Special FX Artist Steve Boyle on board, and between Steve and Chris they have definitely created a very scary man. “We steered away from the masks, we steered away from that ‘Hills Have Eyes’ look, and MAN, I feel we have nailed it. Let’s not forget how big Nathan Jones is at 7ft; add some AMAZING prosthetics and all of a sudden we have a 7ft Australian Killing machine”

Chris, the producers and Steve have decided that NO images of CHARLIE WILSON will be released until the premiere night. So if you want to see Charlie, best make sure you get tickets when they are available.

We have cast 2 horror greats, Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Devil’s Rejects) and the man himself Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th – Jason Voorhees). We have also cast American super tar TARA REID in the LEAD ROLE and acting alongside her is Australian up-and0coming Scream Queen Allira Jaques.

Set to start shooting in Australia 18th March 2014 and be released around the world June 1st 2015, Charlie’s Farm is sure to get you SLASHER FANS excited.

The artwork below is NOT “Charlie Wilson” in full makeup, it’s Nathan Jones just chilling out with his trophies.

Exclusive: Uncrossing Rock Out in Get It From Me



Alright rockers, we’ve got something just for you here! Today, we’re happy to premiere “Get It From Me” from new rock group Uncrossing, which features ex-Activator guitarist Jared Drace! The track comes from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP and it’s a moderately paced, sludgy, doomy track that features strong female vocals. If you’re in the mood for something to get you through the rest of today until the weekend hits, head on down and hit ‘Play’!

Drace tells Dread Central, “Musically, this was a fun one to come up with just because it’s a total mish-mashing of influences, well of MY influences at least. I mean there’s a solid Type O Negative-style chug for the verse and an outro riff that has a kind of Tool-vibe to it, and that’s not even mentioning the melodic beer commercial-like solo in the middle which is definitely a side-effect of listening to too much In Flames & Arch Enemy in my youth! But assembled together and with everyone putting their own stamp on it, we get something that ends up sounding like an Uncrossing song.

Uncrossing’s self-titled 3-track EP will be available for streaming and free download on February 9. You can follow the band on Facebook or Instagram.

If you want to check out the band, you can see them on February 10 at Lucky 13 in Brooklyn, NY.

Exclusive: Venture Into Black Mirror’s Black Museum With Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s “We Got a Miracle”



One of the most anticipated shows to premiere last year (really late last year) was Netflix’s fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s “Black Mirror”. The show has amassed a dedicated following who voraciously devour each new morsel whenever the opportunity presents itself. For those who are eager for a new and different taste, we’ve got something rather special for you today!

Below is an exclusive stream of “We Got a Miracle”, a composition by Cristobal Tapia de Veer (The Girl With All the Gifts) for the “Black Museum” episode. Dark, brooding, and hypnotic, the muted opening enters a tribalistic rhythm with a muted piano piercing the pulsations with staccato stabs. Ghostly vocals hover later on, specters that appear briefly before fading quickly into the darkness. The track builds upon the tribal drums and enters the realm of dissonance without becoming offensive to the ears, culminating in a moment of near ritualistic worship.

The beginning, discovering the Black Museum, that was going to set the tone for the rest of the show,” explained Tapia de Veer. “The music morphed in many ways throughout the 3 stories, then goes back to where it started with the Black Museum, although with a sense of accomplishment, but also a sense of doom.

Black Museum is available as a digital download through Lakeshore Records’ Bandcamp.
