Road Trip of the Dead Bringing New Horrors to Monroeville MallOn tap right now is the first trailer for director William Sanders nostalgic look at the locations used in George A. Romero’s seminal classic Dawn of the Dead, entitled fittingly enough Road Trip of the Dead.

The trailer even features the voice talent of David Crawford (“Dr. Foster” from Dawn of the Dead). Check it out!

They currently have a Road Trip of the Dead Kickstarter campaign launched that you can check out if you want to contribute. There are some really cool perks available to contributors, including authentic pieces of the original elevator and escalator from JCPenney used in the filming of Dawn of the Dead.

From the Press Release
We are in pre-production of a reality-based horror film, Road Trip of the Dead, in the Pittsburgh, Monroeville and Evans City/Cranberry area. Our film stars celebrity and effects artist Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, From Dusk Till Dawn and Django Unchained) and Gary Streiner (Night of the Living Dead).

Our film centers around a group of friends (fans of George Romero films) that are attempting to complete a documentary about filming locations of Romero films in and around Pittsburgh. The friends set out on the tour not knowing the horror they love is about to become a reality.

This is NOT a zombie film, but a reality-based slasher, horror-fiction tale.

This film will not only be an entertaining tale but will also be combined with documentary style information on filming locations of classic Pittsburgh films. Ninety percent of all locations used in our film will have been in other films. Think of them as location cameos, so fans will not only get cameos from stars like Gary Streiner, but they will get to see great locations like the Monroeville Mall (Dawn of the Dead), Evans City Cemetery (Night of the Living Dead) and Wampum Mines (Day of the Dead).

We need your help to secure funds for production (actors/actresses fees, travel, props, equipment, etc.). We are trying to keep this film as much about Pittsburgh as the fans. In doing so, we have secured product placement from Iron City Beer/Pittsburgh Brewing Company and are working with them to help sponsor our project. We are also in talks with Kings Restaurant about filming and sponsorship.

Fans come to Pittsburgh by the thousands to see Romero filming locations, and these fans are “dying” to see them!

Published

Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

Published

on

Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
