Eli Roth has been an ardent supporter of the genre and has made some of the most visceral horror movies of our generation. So it’s only fitting that he is now employing the latest technology to help further the cause and put horror in as many hands as possible.
Roth’s technology project, The Crypt, which launched earlier this year, is an iPhone app where aspiring filmmakers and horror fans can experience the genre on mobile. You can download The Crypt iPhone app from iTunes.
For this Halloween, The Crypt is bringing together 13 genre directors for The Crypt’s 13 Days of #HalloVine! Each day a different director will take over The Crypt’s Twitter, Vine, Instagram, and Facebook accounts and The Crypt app to give fans the chance to interact with their favorite directors and find out what inspired their love of horror.
13 Days of #HalloVine begins today, October 3rd, and ends on October 15th with Eli Roth himself. Find these scary Vines by following The Crypt on Vine or checking out any of The Crypt’s social media channels:
Starting off The Crypt’s 13 Days of #HalloVine is James Cullen Bressack. This 22-year-old director has an impressive resume of films including 13/13/13, Hate Crime, Blood Lake and the recently completed Pernicious.
