Mega Horror Wattage Attached To "Death House"


"Death House" is an upcoming indie horror being written by Jay Black, Gunnar Hansen, Brian Herzlinger, and Harrison Smith. The project is set to be directed by Smith and Herzlinger, and with a cast line-up that is set to feature  Robert Englund, Gunnar Hansen, Sid Haig, Doug Bradley, Bill Moseley, Dee Wallace, Danny Trejo, Ken Foree, Michael Berryman, Barbara Crampton-to name a few of the talent attached, "Death House" reads like a mega mashup who's who of Horror icons.  The crew behind this bit of horror/action porn is hoping for an October 20th release. 

The Four Horsemen are the most notorious serial killers of all time. Robert Englund’s weapon of choice is fire; Gunnar Hansen has an unquenchable thirst for human flesh; Bill Moseley is a surgeon, and tends to focus on mutilation and torture; and Doug Bradley shares a bond with spiders, particularly the Brown Recluse Spider, whose poison Bradley is happy to dispense among those unfortunate enough to meet him.
All four killers are safely housed in a maximum security wing in the basement of the infamous Dodhoff Prison, aka THE DEATH HOUSE.
The newest inmate to the prison is Sid Haig, a Hitler-wannabe with a cult following, whose right-hand man Jeff is almost as sadistic as him.
Also arriving at the prison is a college field trip, led by Professor Dee Wallace. She brings her Psychology class every year to observe, from a safe distance of course, the four horsemen in their prison habitat.
The students include Anna, a no-nonsense passionate student; Nick, who’s taking the class for a glorified credit,; Harold, the geek who could have majored in anything and been successful,; and Suzie, the slut of the group. Michael, the Professor’s Assistant, keeps everything on track for Wallace.
During the tour of the prison by Warden Danny Trejo, Jeff and the cultists invade, staging a prison break to free their god-like leader- and they are shooting to kill. The assault is successful, as they free Sid, but the Warden, locks down the prison to keep Sid from escaping, and contain the prison break. The warden directs the students down a back passage to the boiler room to save their lives. Unfortunately, that is the Warden’s last move, as he is gunned down by the infiltrating mob.
Anna hits the button to release the four horsemen from their cells, knowing they are the only option to take down the mob, and save their own lives in the process. But blood is universal, and soon the students find themselves navigating a brutal and gruesome labyrinth to survive, as the Four Horsemen, in their quest for freedom, unleash holy hell.

R.I.P Christopher Lee. You Will Always Be The Dracula In My Dreams!

It has been announced that horror icon and godfather of indie film, Christopher Lee has passed away Sunday at age 93. A profound and monumental loss to the horror world and film culture alike. Christopher Lee is and will always be the face of Horror, the face of Hammer Films, and the face of Dracula!

For me Christopher Lee was the first time I witnessed Dracula's fangs, his rampage on the village daughters and the iconic battles between he and Van Helsing. He is also the reason I am obsessed with Hammer Studios and horror in general. The studio gave me one of my two "first crushes" as a kid watching VHS horror marathons on the weekends. Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. You rarely saw one in a movie without the other playing his counter.

I have and still enjoy most of Lee's films on a pretty regular basis. So this is my way of saying goodbye to a legend that, to this very day, still stimulates and captivates my mind and heart in horrorific delight! So I am going to list my favorite Christopher Lee performances from 10 to my number 1!

10. The Curse Of Frankenstein


In "The Curse Of Frankenstein, Christopher Lee played the creature. It wasn't the daper dark prince he is to become, but the creature was the first introduction between Lee and Hammer Films and myself.






9. The Hounds Of The Baskervilles


This film was my first experience with Sherlock Holmes films on late night television. This one played on the Saturday night horror show a lot when I was a kid.







8. The Whip And The Body


I ran across this one prowling through the VHS covers at the local rental store and brought it home to watch along with 6 more Hammer horror titles. Back then you could rent up to 10 tapes and keep them for 3 days. That was my weekends!








7. Island Of The Burning Damned

This one isn't as largely known as Lee's other horror films, but it is among those who really enjoyed the years with Terence Fisher directing the future legend of macabre. Lee gives us "dark" so well!











6. The City Of The Dead


This is just a really good movie. The performances and story are so dark, dramatic and entertaining. Plus it is one of my favorite occult themed films of all time.









5. Count Dracula

Come on! That mustache is enough for me, but Count Dracula is a cool vampire film and Christopher Lee knows his part so well that by this time it becomes hard to imagine anyone else as the Prince of Darkness.









4. Dracula: Prince Of Darkness


This earlier Dracula flick is among the best of Hammer horror films and one of the most beloved of Dracula and Christopher Lee films.








3. Curse Of The Crimson Altar

This is just one of the coolest occult, satanic sunday flicks of all time! Christopher Lee may also be responsible for my strong pull toward the occult as well!








2. Dracula Has Risen From The Grave

Dracula is like an unstoppable monster man! It is just Christopher Lee doing what Lee does best! Being the Prince of Darkness!










1. Horror Of Dracula

Horror Of Dracula is my first intro into Hammer's spin on Dracula and my love of all things vampire and Christopher Lee. I still watch this film at least once a month sometimes more.








Well it is a late salute to the great Prince Of Darkness and a forever hot Horror icon. A couple of years back I did a photo blog post for Horror Of Dracula, check out Part 1 and Part 2 for some cool DVD stills of the film.

Cthulhu Crush Productions is excited to announce principal photography is set to begin on Peter Herro’s WTF! June 15th around Los Angeles. The horror film sees a survivor of a mass killing on a trip with six close friends, when her nightmare threatens to begin again.

Time has passed, and Rachel has moved on, but unfortunately history has a way of repeating itself. Her close friends are spending spring break in a secluded house in the woods, and they have cordially invited her to join. Little does she realize that another bloodbath will be showing up as plus one. Once Rachel and her friends arrive at the cabin, the partying, sex, and terror begins.
From girls’ only pillow fights to debauchery in the bedroom, it’s going to be a blast…until the stabbing, flesh melting, and castration starts. Seven friends will go into a secluded house for the best spring break of their lives, but only one will be alive to post about it on Instagram the next week, as Rachel’s biggest fears become a reality once again.

NSFW Trailer For Grindhouse Thriller "She Kills"

Ron Bonk has unleashed the latest trailer for his recently wrapped revenge horror movie “She Kills”.  The movie, an homage to Ron’s favorite low budget movies of the 70’s, revolves around Sadie (Jennie Russo), who discovers her nether region holds strange powers during a sexual assault by a gang called “The Touchers”.  The gang is led by Dirk MaSalle (Trey Harrison), a super badass who’s used to getting what he wants from women - and if he doesn’t, he takes it by force.  And he’s not afraid to smack his gang around when needed, which includes the envious Reggie (Michael Merchant), the slimy Poodle (Jody Pucello), the lumber muscle Blue (David Royal) and the gang play toy Beatrice (Martha Zemsta). 

“She Kills” is an crazy, nonstop roller coaster ride of debauchery and crude humor. You can catch just a glimpse of the insanity in the link below. 


Here’s the synopsis:  "Sadie’s life is destroyed when a vicious gang called “The Touchers” targets her for their sadistic fantasies after witnessing her sexy but innocent naked frolicking in a nearby field. On her wedding night they attack her and her husband Edward, brutalizing both of them. But during the attack the virgin bride discovers a dangerous secret about her body – she is cursed with the legendary “Fire Crotch”, a condition where Satan has laid claim to her vagina. After visiting her fortune teller friend Casparella, a space exorcism is attempted on her meat flaps, but it only ends up unlocking secret hidden powers inside her.

FOX Reveals First Look At Mulder & Scully!

FOX has teased us with the first look image of Agent Mulder and Agent Scully on the set of the new 6 episode run for upcoming revival of 'X-Files'. The shot doesn't offer much and the reunion doesn't seem to bolster the warmth that we fans have felt hearing of the show's reboot. Well mini-reboot!

Walter Skinner played by Mitch Pileggi has also been confirmed as returning to the series. I have been prepping for the series return by binge watching the reruns that gather on my DVR daily. 'X-Files' is probably the most influential modern sci-fi series to come along since 'Star Trek'. What makes it even more relevant and poignant is that the show put the paranormal and science fiction genre in the "now", while making it cool and mainstream.

My Review Of 'A Blood Story"

Joe Hollow's "A Blood Story" is a horror fantasy that stars Camden Toy, Mindy Robinson, Mark Hanson, Melanie Robel. The story is a modern Gothic piece that plays heavy on erotica, melodrama and almost Shakespearean archetypes. 

The synopsis:  Three strangers find themselves at a villa, each with the same goal of discovering the Fountain of Youth, rumored to be nearby. One by one they succumb to the carnal perversions and depraved delights provided by the villa, unaware they are pawns in the resurrection of a centuries old evil.

Hollow's story is a stark expose of one's drive for eternal youth and beauty obtained through the darkest capabilities. Much like Elizabeth Bathory, these characters thirst for immortality, youth, and a place at the top of society's creme. The characters are a bizarre collection of Gothic personalities. "A Blood Story" moves pretty slow and steady with lots of melodrama and theatrics. The tone and pace of the film never really reaches the fever-pitch of thrillers or suspense horror stories, but it does pull you in with plenty of dialog and character development. 

There are a few moments of horror effects that really bring to life the dark subject matter of the film. It isn't really meant to create a sense of chilling horror. The scenes are more of atmospheric macabre. Most moments that use special effects and blood are mixed with erotica so even these elements of "A Blood Story" stay more fantasy. Still the practical effects and horror moments are strong, quality aspects that do heighten the overall effects of this film. 

"A Blood Story" is a mature, fantasy horror that is reminiscent of 70's Amicus style of Gothic horror fantasy films. It does tend to stay on the more "slow burn" melodrama side of horror, but with such Shakespearean characters and plenty of blood washed T&A there is plenty to entertain. The film isn't going to hit any high spots with die hard horror fans that like faster paced stories filled with gore or violence. "A Blood Story" is a visual slice of the macabre which plays on the whole "Bathory styled nightmare". 

Trailer And Poster For "A Blood Story" Released

Joe Hollow's fantasy horror "A Blood Story" has released a trailer along with a crimson soaked poster. The film is out now and brings to life the legacy of Elizabeth Bathory in this twisted tale that bathes in the fountain of youth! "A Blood Story" stars Mindy RobinsonCamden ToyMark Hanson,Debra Lamb and Melanie Robel.

Press Release:
Director Joe Hollow who brought you “The Family” and “Disciples” will be unleashing his latest twisted opus: “A Blood Story” the boundary pushing mix of erotica and horror that is set for worldwide release this June 9th on DVD everywhere.

“A Blood Story centers on the discovery of the legendary Fountain of Youth and the awaking of a centuries old demon that unleashes upon the guests of a nearby villa, subjecting them to unspeakable acts of depravity, perversion and murder.”

Hollow says, “This is the lowest budget film I have done to date but it’s special for a great many reasons. Robert’s passing was very difficult for us but the time we shared with him will forever live in our hearts. We were one big family on that set. And as a family I really feel we were able to tell an interesting story without all the extra characters, complex storyline and content that my earlier films are known for. With A Blood Story we had a very limited budget and a 10 day shooting schedule. So, THUMBS UP to an incredibly ambitious and inspiring cast and to Debra Lamb who muscled it through a fast moving difficult schedule as both an actor and producer. We wanted to do something different and we pulled it off . We are all very proud of this film”.
Produced by Hollow Films in conjunction with Lamblight Productions and distributed by Maxim Media Entertainment/Brain Damage Films. A Blood Story stars Mindy Robinson, Camden Toy, Mark Hanson, Debra Lamb, Melanie Robel, Linnea Quigley and the legendary Robert D’Zar in one of his final roles.
