Check Out The First Clip From “Carrie” 2013



carrie2013The first official clip has arrived for 2013’s “Carrie”. The film is one of the most anticipated “remakes” to come out recently and other than “Robocop”, Kimberly Peirce’s “Carrie” is one that gains the most excitement from the blogosphere. The first clip is one iconic aspect of the Carrie story as written by Stephen King. “Go To Your Closet” gives us our first real emotionally connective feel to the 2013 film starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Ansel Elgort. It hits theatres on October 18th.

A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.


The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine, is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter, Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.

Horror Film To Feature Hollywood Pet Bling



PURPLEA brand new Hollywood style pet jewelry company has been chosen to produce a special necklace for an upcoming horror film to be shot in 2014.

Ruby’s Regalia opened for business in October 2013 and was immediately chosen by a film company in California to design and create a special dog necklace.

The film will feature a large Rottweiler, who for once won’t be the bad guy.

“We were very pleased that the dog wasn’t going to be shown in a bad light, because so many horror films have done so in the past. This time, the dog is a kind of hero in the film and we were delighted to be asked to create something unique.” Said Ruby’s Regalia spokesman, Brian Johnson.

Although the film is top secret at the moment, much of it will be filmed in the UK with a few top stars already lined up for lead roles.

Ruby’s Regalia has launched with several stylish pet necklaces including some Halloween sets. There’s even pet-owner companion sets for those special occasions. The company, based in Nottinghamshire, England, spent months searching out quality materials and found themselves rejecting an awful lot.

“I think the fact that we were so determined to ensure everything about our products was top quality helped the film company to decide.” Said Johnson.

The film will be set in a strange futuristic world with the lead actors playing horror film fans who have distinct Goth fashion style tastes.

“We had to take into account the characters and their roles in the film because they are the fictional owners of the Rottweiler. We’re working with the Director in the background right now on some extra pieces in the film for the lead actress, which mirrors the dog’s piece and came about through the Producer noticing we actually do make Companion Sets such as a bracelet for the owner and a necklace for the pet.”

In fact, the bling does form a central role in the film and so it was very important to get it right. Official replicas will be exclusively available from Ruby’s Regalia for the pampered pooch and even owner!

Official Trailer Drops For Tobe Hooper’s “Djinn”



djinnIt seems like forever since work came of Tobe Hooper’s “Djinn”, a film that for the most part was kept under wraps during the majority of production. There were some articles and non-affective images from the project released that gave only small hints to the depth of the picture but finally we have a full glimpse into this tale.

“The Castle Project”



the castle project filmRaw Documentary’s “The Castle Project” was released on October the 1st through VOD and DVD. The film is an in-depth exploration of Colorado’s Croke-Patterson mansion in Denver. Directed by Brian Higgins, the film documents the long paranormal history associated with the castle. Check out the trailer below.

The Castle Project is a gripping feature length documentary exploring the hauntings, history and renovation of the historic Croke Patterson Mansion in Denver, Colorado. The castle’s 120 year history and folklore is filled with tragedy, suicides and stories of guard dogs jumping out of third floor windows to escape what could be a demonic presence. There have been an uncanny number of deaths in the house over the years including a documented suicide. Not only is it believed to be haunted but also said to be one of the best locations in the U.S. for paranormal encounters. The daunting exterior has propagated folklore with stories about a satanic caretaker, a buried baby, and spirits that keep the building from being inhabited.

As Brian and his team tackle the intimidating task of renovating the historic mansion, the workers begin to report supernatural occurrences, from sightings of apparitions, whispering voices and peculiar odors. When members of the team start to fall ill, and an unexplained fire threatens the projects completion, Brian begins to question the true nature of the castle and the meaning behind these strange events.

Brian turns to the most famous poet in history for answers, Dante Alighieri and Dante's Inferno. What he uncovers is unexpected and may hold the answer to the one question that we all are seeking.

My Review Of “Curse Of Chucky”



Curse-of-Chucky-Cover“Curse Of Chucky” is the latest sequel in the iconic horror franchise. The film is directed by Don Mancini  and stars Danielle Bisutti, Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, A Martinez, Maitland McConnell, Brennan Elliott, Chantal Quesnelle, Jennifer Tilly and Summer H. Howell. “Curse Of Chucky” offers a full circle tribute to the franchise while maintaining an original and fresh concept. This film also offers a more serious and darker story reminiscent of “Child’s Play” 1 & 2. A story that was more chillingly horror driven than tongue-in-cheek shtick that the franchise later became known for.  A mysterious package arrives with the infamous doll, with the soul of a serial killer, to a home of Sarah and Nica. Sarah is a struggling mother on meds and daughter Nica is in a wheelchair. Of course this being a return to the horror, mommy dies expectantly. After that the rest of the family gather at the house to break bread and bury the mother. Yeah that hardly gets off the ground thanks to the great little re-gift from the beginning of the film. Chucky proves still full of murderous rage and evil intent.

“Curse Of Chucky” takes on a darker story and classic haunting atmospheric personality right from the beginning. It is a clean, strong and well thought out story to say the least. It is obvious that this sequel was not made just for the sake of twisted quick-wit banter and almost comical kill scenes from a Good Guy doll. Personally I feel satisfied in knowing that I can squeeze this sequel right into the series just after 1 & 2 and be happy or even as numero 6 considering the cool, slightly cheeky ending.

The special effects, and cinematography was classic horror atmospheric thrills. Camera tricks that accent the shadows, moments of sudden shock for real reason, and creepy sound effects played well against a truly freaky setting. Location is everything in a horror film and “ Curse Of Chucky” brings the spooky old house back to the foreground of horror. The characters are well written and offer just enough personality to connect with without becoming annoying or pretentious. Chucky himself was on screen and evil enough to be convincing and entertaining without looking completely childish or lame. That is a big part that makes the 3-5 sequels more stoned amusement than actual tales of terror. His presence is very strong and chilling on screen much like in the original and the second film which puts “Curse Of Chucky” as a great horror film and killer sequel. Blood and gore is limited to the absolute moments of necessity with the kill scenes sharing in the overall film rather than trying to become some overloaded spectacle. “Curse Of Chucky” is a awesome horror movie and one that any horror fan, especially of the “Child’s Play” franchise will definitely enjoy.

After Samantha walks out on a romantic dinner he has prepared, he soon becomes a victim of his own obsessive behavior when random objects around his condo mysteriously shift out of place when he's not looking.

Director/Writer Daniel MacMunn explains where his passion comes from- If you love "The Twilight Zone" then you will be an instant fan of "Out of Place." I have always been a huge fan of Rod Serling's hit classic, creepy series from the early 1960's. Many people have tried to duplicate this series but have fallen short in my eyes. "Out of Place" is the first episode of a series I created called "A Seat on a Train." I don't want to copy Rod Serling's genius, but pay homage to it. I believe my ideas and skilled writing will bring back that great old style of story telling, while piquing the interest of the modern day viewer. I have written many other episodes, ready to be filmed, that pertain to our modern times. "Out of Place" is the first brave attempt of this series. It was shot very low budget, in one location with two characters. It has that creepy style of filming with original music enhancing the story. I hope "Out of Place" will be the kick start into a long run of "A Seat on a Train."

Festival Awards for "Out of Pace"
- Official selection of The Green Bay Film Festival
- Winner of best short at The Best Shorts Competition
- An Award of Excellence at The Accolade Film Competition
- Selected for screening at The Hot Springs Horror Film Festival in October- 



Now we are ready for the public release. What we are trying to do here, is to get as many people to view "Out of Place" on Halloween and after. Our goal is 100k views. We know this is a lot but feel this concept is very marketable. In conclusion we hope to gain enough of an audience so we can show the networks how popular our show is and hopefully get picked up in the near future. 



In the collaborative spirit of film making, we have launched our own crowd funding campaign to help finance our next episode "The Perfect Woman." To obtain funding we will be selling DVDs and posters offered after the viewing on Halloween and all other efforts will not take place until the day of the release. We also will be offering incentives to anyone who helps us get the word out, including a DVD package, exposure on our Facebook page, IMDB credit and advertising on all of our other sites. We are also open to any suggestions you may have. 



In the near future, we hope to collaborate with undiscovered, talented writers, actors and directors just like Serling did. We want to honor Rod Serling by continuing his great vision, creepy themes and unique story telling. Most of all, we want to help launch careers of these artists while entertaining and creeping out a large fan base with original stories that pertain to our modern times.

Teaser Released For “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”


Avengers 2 Movie - Age of Ultron


Check out the teaser that released for “Avengers” sequel “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”. The film sees Joss Whedon return as director in a story that follows US Government created a force, known as Ultron. The Avengers are told they are not needed any longer. But when Ultron turns against Humanity, it’s time for The Avengers to assemble yet again for their most dangerous challenge ever. This one isn’t due out until May 2015.

Check Out The Teaser For Demon Fantasy “Interpreter Of Signs”



interpreter of signs“Interpreter Of Signs” is a demon fantasy noir directed by award-winning character effects creator Tom Woodruff Jr. in his directorial debut feature project. Earlier Woodruff gave fans a taste of this dark surreal world with his short film “Fire City: King Of Miseries”. “Interpreter Of Signs” is  set against the noir backdrop of FIRE CITY, a shadowy atmospheric world, where demons live among humans who can’t see them for what they are.

The story follows Atum Vine, your average 700-year-old demon, who looks just shy of 30, with a bad attitude and an 8-foot wingspan. To the humans who live unknowingly among demons in a beatup tenement building, Vine is the drug dealer at the end of the hall. But to the demons on the floor, Vine is a procurer of human misery, which demons need to survive. Vine has a foot in both worlds; it’s harder than ever to make a buck these days.

Though evil incarnate, Vine isn’t all bad. Unlike most, he truly believes in the Balance, which prohibits demons from causing the misery in humans they so dearly need. Long ago, it was decided that it was better to feed modestly for a thousand years than feast for a single day. Humans are too unpredictable, too big a threat in the end, and they are all too capable of causing their own misery. All it takes is a little encouragement, which is where Vine comes in.

Life is about as good as it gets, when… everything changes.

Vine’s steady flow of addicts shuts off like a faucet. And the humans in the building suddenly reform their despicable ways. The alcoholic mother stops drinking. The wife-beater stops beating. The skeevy mother’s boyfriend is a model father figure. The Balance is broken, and Vine and the demons around him begin to starve.

Vine consults Cornelia, an interpreter of signs, fortune teller in the demon world and guardian of the Balance. Together, they discover that the phenomenon is localized, extending only to the humans in the tenement building. Cornelia reasons it is a curse. Vine believes it is a vendetta against him by a drug lord named Tarqus, a giant molluck demon with four black eyes and curling horns, who runs drugs out of a demon nightclub. After a standoff, Vine discovers that Tarqus not only isn’t the culprit, but that Tarqus and his gang are starving too.

Not knowing who to trust and running out of time, Vine continues the investigation, thinking now it must be one of the very demons starving back at the tenement. His inquiries cause conflict and lead nowhere. His best suspect ends up starving horribly to death. The other demons want to attack the humans, and one tries, but it is no use. The victim’s smile never fades, the wounds heal instantly, happiness abounds, as if the attack never happened.

Cornelia consults an oracle and decides the Balance in the building must be restored by wholesale slaughter of the humans, beginning with Sara, an 11-year-old girl who trusts Vine. And it must be Vine who kills her. Such a betrayal perpetrated on such an innocent human will break the spell the humans are under and their restored fear and misery will nourish the starving demons.

Faced with killing the only innocent human he’s ever known, Vine finally rejects his own nature and fights against his own kind in order to save Sara. He is unique in the Universe, a demon with a conscience. He feels he has evolved, if only to author his own extinction. But evolution is a painful process. And once Sara is safe and the demons in the building are vanquished, Vine discovers he has been betrayed by the most unlikely character of all. He was a pawn the entire time in a larger plan, one that threatens more than his tenement building, but threatens the world, human and demon alike.
