“Octomom” Nadya Suleman Gives Birth To Evil


imageNadya Suleman, also known as the “Octomom,” makes her acting debut as the expectant mother of Satan’s child. The infamous mother of 14 kids stars in the new thriller/horror film “666: The Devil’s Child”. The film will be released on July 25th, on VOD, Amazon Video and iTunes.

“666: The Devil’s Child”, previously titled Millennium, was featured on CNN’s Showbiz Tonight, in Fangoria Magazine and on E! Online during its production in 2012. A re-vamp of the final cut and a new title have made this micro-budget film an enticing and thrilling watch.

"Nadya Suleman is the best new "Scream Queen" in the business,” says Kevin Finn, 666 Director. “It was truly an honor working with her. She has a bright future in the movie business!" The film’s directors cast Suleman in part for her name recognition, but were surprised by the level of her acting talent—

"You will be on the edge of your seat from start to finish,” according to Franklin Allen Arceneaux, Co-Director of the film. “Nadya will surprise you. She's a genuine talent and brings the story to life in a shocking way."

The film tells the story of two young friends, a woman (Suleman) and a man, who visit another young woman they met on the internet. Once they arrive at the woman’s remote home, unexplainable things begin to happen. Suleman, who has the lead role, plays a virgin who suddenly becomes impregnated by a demon.

“I feel very fortunate to have been given this opportunity to star in this horror film,” says Suleman, “There are very similar characteristics between my character, Vanessa, and myself, which has made it easier to prepare for my role.”

Trailer No. 3 For “Witch”


wA new trailer has been released for Trevor Hayward’s “Witch”.

“Our Fears – do we ever overcome them?
The monster hiding under the bed... the unknown horror that lies in wait in the dark... the bogeyman in the closet...

The stories that frighten us when we are young leave their mark deep in the psyche and never stray far from our consciousness...

When a group of random strangers are interviewed for a television documentary investigating the nature of fear, it appears that a strange and dark connection somehow links them.

One person’s story in particular stands out from the rest – Rachel Gowen is determined to seek out her past and confront her fears by returning to the remote village she left as a child.

...and it's deepest, darkest secrets.?

Chris Seaver's "Geek War", possibly the best feature from the prolific filmmaker, finally reaches the masses this Sept from SRS Cinema and MVD.

gw"There's a mysterious VHS tape that dwells in the comic book shop of Deathbone (Billy Garberina), the eccentric barbarian shop owner. Deathbone has priced this tape at $1500, and in 25 years nobody has ever forked over the cash to buy it... that is, until now. Thus begins the Geek War. Two nerds, Max (Kurt Indovina) and Papillion (Josh Suire), fight to claim the tape as their own from the clutches of Tangerine (Raine Brown), a dorky but super hot girl who loves comic books and swooped in and bought the tape before they could. Both sides pull every trick in the book to seduce Tangerine in hopes of grasping the tape and viewing its legendary content. But in the course of trying to win the tape, Max ends up falling for Tangerine, and that is when the REAL trouble begins..."

The DVD for this movie is packed with extras... commentary track, blooper reel, interviews, "The Dorkening" podcast and proposed alternative artwork.

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Festival Of Castor And Pollux


Castor PolluxCastor and Pollux, in Roman mythology, were the twin demi-god offspring of Jupiter and Leda and equivalent to the Dioscuri of Greek mythology. They are also represented in the constellation Gemini. Pollux was considered immortal whilst his brother was mortal; both were particularly associated with cavalry and the cult of the twins went back to the mid-6th century BCE in Italy. The original temple in Rome was dedicated by the Roman general Aulus Postumius who won a great victory against the Latins in the Battle of Lake Regillus (499 or 496 BCE).

During the battle two young men riding white horses were said to have appeared and guided the Romans to victory and then were seen again after the battle watering their horses at the Juturna Spring in Rome, hence the subsequent dedication to the famous cavalry twins and choice of location for the temple next to the fountain. Parts of the original temple's podium survive and hint at its great size. Every 15th of July the temple was the focus of a cavalry parade - the transvectio - of 5,000 men led by two impersonators of the heroes who commemorated the victory at Regillus.
