Last year right before Halloween we shared with our readers a pretty cool Aussie short film entitled "I Love Sarah Jane". What does that have to do with the Oscars?
No amount of words can prepare you for the lunacy you are about to witness. We're still shaking. Way back in 1982 both E.T. and John Carpenter's The Thing waged intergalactic war for box office supremacy. Audiences opted for the friendlier alien movie. Now, decades later, those friendly aliens are back and they want more than just candy and telephones.
Raymond Castile, the man who played the young Coffin Joe in the upcoming film The Embodiment of Evil, has continued to find his way through the world of filmmaking. Next up? Taking the director's chair for the Sasquatchploitation short The Devil at Lost Creek!
On Valentine's Day, everyone could use a little love, even those who do nothing but commit heinous acts of evil as a means to garner the power of world domination!

Paul Blom, one of the organizers of South Africa's HorrorFest, dropped us a line with news about another project he's involved with: "Virus", a music video by Cape Town-based, female-fronted industrial-metal band TERMINATRYX that has been expanded into an even more involved short film entitled "Marked".

When we interviewed Cuyle Carvin last March, he talked a little about appearing with "Rowdy" Roddy Piper in the upcoming film Alien Opponent (formerly known as Opponent), and today we have an update on that project along with some early details on Carvin's own production company's short film entitled Amused.
We broke the story about Absentia (review here) director Mike Flanagan's next feature film Oculus just a few days ago, and now we have the official confirmation and first bit of teaser art! From the Press Release
Around these parts we're big fans of director Mark Pavia, who first hit our radar with the deliciously creepy film adaptation of Stephen King's The Night Flier. Ever wonder how and why he got that gig? Well you're about to see for yourself.
