'Bloody Cuts' first short released

Very few of the web series that have come out have impressed me beyond the tactical politeness that all attempts to celebrate horror should receive.  The exceptions being Fearnet's 'Roadkill' series and '30 Days of Night' series. After seeing this first release from 'Bloody Cuts' I am slightly intrigued and on edge. Will the other shorts follow this plot? Will I find out what the hell that was that attacked him? or will the stories all have seperate plots taking new characters each time down new unknown paths? Will all the shorts be in that same building? Yeah I know - alot of fucking questions but that is what the short left me with. No "this sucks" or "this rocks" just questions about the rest of the "films" coming out.  Check the first one out for yourselves....
From the Press Release
The first of 13 Bloody Cuts makes its entry wound with the release of Lock Up - the debut from an anthology of chilling shorts spilt from the vein of horror fanaticism.
When you're leaving late from work, like you've done many times before, spare a thought for the complacency of your safety and stay out of the dark - evil lives there. Lock Up is a chilling tale of fear and suspense and a potent reminder that something of nightmares could be lurking in the shadows around any corner.
The Bloody Cuts films will be released online and run until their terrifying cycle is complete.
Whilst our filmmaking ideology is grassroots horror on a low budget, the Bloody Cuts team are looking for accomplices in the form of funders, sponsors or supporters. If you fancy associating your product, project or website with the Bloody Cuts anthology, then get in contact with us today to discuss ideas and opportunities; just send an here.
Each film will run at 2-3 minutes long and will be drenched in the tropes of classic horror, so if you're a true horror fan, this will be right down your Elm Street. Frights. Cameras. Action. Watch this space as the dread unfolds.

New "Final Destination 5" Poster

New "Final Destination 5" posters shows a load of re barb which makes me feel that alot of the deaths are gonna be from severe impalement. Maybe that is just my sick hopeful moment for wanting to see this film. I am otherwise in the vein of "who cares" in regards to the FD franchise at this point. So any new death scenario's that have a ridiculous object slamming thru someone spewing ungodly amounts of blood and gore all over the scene would really be a "woo-hoo" moment for me.  

'Dexter' Image from Season 6

Hopefully this season I will find out what the hell "Santa Muerte" is all about. Anyway this season they will delve into the sinister world of  religion and its ties to voodoo. It will be darker and grittier than seasons past, so I can not wait to be possessed by Dexter Morgan.

 Tomb Of The Blind Dead- 1971



Shadow Of The Grail- Richard Stanley

Richard Stanley is a film-maker, anthropologist and esoteric scholar. He has written and directed such feature films as Hardware and Dust Devil and a series of award winning documentaries.
In the summer of 1992 Stanley travelled to the remote Pyrenean village of Montsegur and scaled the mountain to the enigmatic ruins of the castle perched high on its summit.
There he was trapped by a freak electro-magnetic storm. The ordeal set in motion a chain of spiralling events that led Stanley on a twenty year quest to learn the truth about the castle and its secrets.
Through text, photographs and video this book tells the bizarre story of Otto Rahn, who believed the castle was key to a priceless treasure and was employed by the Nazi SS to find it, or die.
We learn about the mysterious cult of the Cathars, who were massacred there in the 13th Century, and their warrior priestess, Esclarmonde, the ‘Light of the World’, immortal guardian of the Holy Grail.
Untangling a web of clues and coincidences, wonders and terrors, Stanley is caught up in a saga that will shake your beliefs and challenge your concept of reality.
ENHANCED EDITION: This special edition includes more than twenty minutes of video from Stanley's epic documentary, "The Secret Glory".

Images from Indie horror "Lilith"



"The concept was to have a large, creepy building where each floor served as a ring of hell, and Satan was in a chest freezer in the basement morgue. The concept was vague and lacked a clear protagonist and antagonist (hell is a force of antagonism, not an an antagonist itself), and by nature The Inferno was a passive, observational story, but something about it felt right. Can't really tell you why, but it did. After many days of soul searching, I decided, for better or worse, that this was the story I was going to pursue."

This is the story that SHOULD have been told…
While shooting the sequel to The Whore, director Reinert Kiil and his director of photography join forces in an effort to make the ugliest and most grotesque film ever made. During production outside Kvam in Bergen, the crew and actors notice that there is something weird and strange going on when friends and colleagues begin to die in brutal ways. The question is whether it is the Whore who has come to life looking for revenge or whether it's actually the director who gets his dream come true about making the most horrible movie ever.
