Fun Size Horror: Volume One Hits VOD in May

Published

on

Last Halloween season we were involved with the Fun Size Horror project along with several other websites. The purpose was to bring some cool horror shorts to you guys on a grand scale. Well… the scale is getting grander.

From the Press Release:
After their successful online “trick or treat” promotional release, which was 31 short horror films that appeared online for free, the week of Halloween only, across BloodyDisgusting, Collider, DreadCentral, BadAssDigest, and ShockTillYouDrop, the series was picked up for a May 2015 VOD release by Gravitas Venture.

The anthology film Fun Size Horror: Volume One will be a collection of twenty-one of the twisted tales made by the horror film collective. Like a bag of Halloween candy after a night of trick or treating, Fun Size Horror: Volume One is filled with a variety of fun size treats of all kinds. The films range from classic slashers and creature features to horror-comedy and hauntings, all made into one feature length film designed to chill and delight horror fans.

The series began when creator Zeke Pinheiro took his love of genre movies and sought out a variety of different filmmakers to join him on a mission to make an assortment of terrifying short films. He partnered with producers Mali Elfman and Michael May and executive producer Curtis Andersen to release Fun Size Horror online and help distribute Fun Size Horror: Volume One.

Fun Size Horror: Year Two is currently in pre-production, set for release this Halloween 2015, aiming once again for 31 new shorts for audiences to feast on. More on the Year Two release is coming soon.

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.
