Nicholas Vince’s Terrifying Short The Night Whispered Released on Reelhouse

Published

on

If you’re in need of some spooky viewing material, you can’t go wrong with the newly released short film The Night Whispered.

Written and directed by Nicholas Vince, who starred as the Chatterer Cenobite in the first two Hellraiser movies, The Night Whispered finds a group of friends having to walk home at night after they miss the last train. They soon meet a mysterious stranger (played by Vince), and things take a strange turn. Holly Boyden, Laura Hopwood, Dawson James, and Maddy Vince also star.

I had the pleasure of attending one of Mr. Vince’s talks, which was accompanied by a screening of The Night Whispered, and I can tell you that it’s one of the creepiest shorts I’ve seen in quite some time. So if you fancy being scared rigid, you can purchase a digital copy of the film on Reelhouse.

If you missed it earlier, you can also read my in-depth interview with the wonderful Nicholas Vince here.

From the Press Release:
Nicholas Vince, best known for playing The Chatterer in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, releases his first short film as writer and director, The Night Whispered, online at Reelhouse on Halloween.

The film tells of three friends who miss the last tram home and decide to take a shortcut through a dark country park. Uninvited, a sinister man (played by Vince) and his dog join them. In the park; one hears a whisper, turns and vanishes. The others search, until they too hear whispers.

Nicholas said, “We filmed on a night when the temperature dropped to zero degrees Celsius, so our breath frosted. Luckily, that helps sell why the friends would abandon the brightly lit streets to take a short cut home. The film is a ‘chilling ghost story.”

The film has screened at festivals in the USA, France and UK with a screening before the smash hit ‘Get Out’.

You can rent (USD $1.49), buy (USD $2.49) or buy with extras (USD $2.99) which includes the making of documentary Bloody Hell It’s Cold!, the shooting script, storyboard, BTS photos, and other extras.

Exclusive: Terror Universal Dare You to Look Through the Mirrors

Published

on

Alright horror metalheads, it’s time to raise those devil horns and get ready for some Terror Universal! On hand we’ve got the exclusive video premiere for the track “Through the Mirrors”, which comes from the band’s album Make Them Bleed. Directed by Wacy Jahn, the video mixes band performance with the hallucinations and troubles of a man who clearly has some issues going on.

Jahn tells us about making the video, saying, “As a director, I was given the freedom to give my visual interpretation of what the song meant to me personally. The inner self that tortures the outer self into being something different no matter the cost. Now mix a twist of insanity into the recipe and you get the “Through the Mirrors” official Terror Universal music video.

Band member Massacre adds, “I am very pumped to be releasing the “Through The Mirrors” video, as this track is one of my favorite songs on our new album ‘Make Them Bleed’. This song showcases many of Terror Universal’s diverse sounds, as it’s brutally heavy, and also has a very anthemic and memorable chorus.

Made up of current and past members of Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body, Terror Universal is a metal band dedicated to combining their love of all things heavy with their passion for horror. Make Them Bleed also features guest appearances from bassists John Moyer (Disturbed) and Tony Campos (Static-X).

You can buy Make Them Bleed on Bandcamp.

The Sinking City Update Dives Into the Cthulhu Mythos That Drives the Game

Published

on

If you’ve been following our coverage of Frogwares’ The Sinking City, you’ll know that it’s probably my most anticipated game not just of the year but of a long, long time! An open world game that lives in the aesthetic and atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft? Consider me 100% hooked! This game ticks all the boxes of my love of horror and my love of gaming.

A new update video has been released and this one goes right into the ways that H.P. Lovecraft and his works directly influenced the game, the developers and the story players will experience. On top of that, it also goes into how Lovecraft’s themes inspired the creators at Frogwares to forge their own paths and create their own mythology and terror. It’s a wonderful video because we get to see these people take an established universe and build upon it with reverence, respect, and passion.

Seriously, if The Sinking City isn’t on your radar, you’re going to be missing out when it’s released.

Synopsis:
The Sinking City interprets and develops the themes that Lovecraft explored: the fear of monsters and the unknown, the search for occult truths and madness. In the game, players step into the shoes of a private detective investigating the disappearance of an expedition to the imaginary town of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont is a city experiencing unprecedented flooding due to supernatural forces, leaving a large portion of the city submerged. Secret societies, dangers, intrigues and monstrous creatures will stand in your way…
