There are 10,000 possibilities in a 4 digit combination lock. With a little persistence, focus and a little time anyone can figure out the correct digits to unlock it. That’s precisely what the man in this next short has to do, and with just one lock left to go he looks like he’s almost free.

Unfortunately, for him his time is almost up and there is something dark and terrifying waiting to reveal itself.

Check out Thresher below and see just what’s in store for him.

 

Combination lock in a thick web of steel chains,

Separating you from the reality you once stayed.

The melody in the room fills you with hope and keeps you sane,

Loneliness empty ten thousand possibilities to stay entertained.

You scroll through the digits, etching each and every one,

Keep your eyes on the prize don’t lose focus you’re almost done.

The music has stopped and the clock continues to tick,

The life you once knew is over just as you blinked.

Night Swim

Who says you can’t enjoy yourself when you’re all alone?

This next film shows us all you need is some classical tunes, a cat, and a decent sized pool to have a relaxing night swim.

Just be careful not to get too relaxed, the water has a way of playing tricks on you that you would never expect.

 

It’s the middle of the night and your feeling kind of grim,

Just grab your favorite tune and go for a swim.

Feel the water relieve you of your solitude tonight,

Take a deep breath and submerge yourself, don’t worry it’s alright.

What are you doing? Don’t come back up yet,

There’s no one watching I promise you, don’t fret.

Now, go back under and this time really try to clear your head,

Keep your eyes closed and don’t open them or you might find yourself dead.

I mean, you wouldn’t want to go out there without the proper tools, right?

Drudge is what you can describe as one bad-ass killing machine. Dressed in all black, a handmade black metal skull mask, and best of all an arm-attached arsenal of weapons that range from blades, nails, and one hell of a hook!

Dead Static And Rocky Gray’s New Album Accursed

Nov

Normally when we feature a film or trailer it’s usually on it’s own. Today, however, we decided to do things a little different. For months now we’ve been thinking about what other categories within the horror genre to include in our posts and the one that just keeps coming up is horror music.

Let’s face it, without a truly terrifying soundtrack a horror film would not be the same. You can have a great story, incredible lighting for the perfect ominous look, and perfectly executed shots and angles but without the right music to build suspense the film will lack that ultimate terror factor. This is of course is not true with found footage films. When done right these very raw, home video styled masterpieces with the absence of music actually make them extremely chilling.

Now, we are a fan of a good found footage film. When we say good we mean one that doesn’t put us to sleep and keeps us interested throughout. Dead Static, while it may not be something we haven’t seen before surprisingly it kept us entertained. What we truly loved about Dead Static is that it was short, sweet and to the point. An anthology of 3 tales that take you into Vermont’s most haunted places; Emily’s Bridge, Green Mount Cemetery, and The Pittsford Haunted House.

While the sound of static accompanies the rolling credits at the end of the film very well we couldn’t help but think of a perfect substitute, Rocky Gray’s new album Accursed. If you haven’t heard of Rocky Gray, he is the former drummer of Evanescence and We Are The Fallen as well as the guitarist for Living Sacrifice and Even Devils Die. After listening to this album you will not only get the feel for Gray’s passion for the horror genre but also be grinning from the sheer spine tingling sensations you will get from the dark harmonies he creates.

So we hope you enjoy Dead Static and right after go check out Rocky Gray’s Accursed.

Here’s a post-Halloween treat for you horror freaks.

There are many things that women do that we find sexy and after watching Skypemare we added another one to the already extensive list and that is, video chatting in their revealing pajamas.

We got to say that this film did a lot of things right especially in the distraction department. which was an element that was used brilliantly throughout.

There was only one scene that we were hoping the suspense would have been “milked” a bit more, but other than that the film was very well done.

So if you’re alone tonight don’t you worry.  Just take out your laptop and turn on Skype. The girls in Skypemare know just how to make you feel better .

VHS-VIRAL

If you thought the first two V/H/S films were good then you’re going to get one hell of a kick out of the third installment.

This trailer is totally insane, has blood and guts galore and best of all hot chicks with monster abs(literally)!

In V/H/S: Viral a group of fame-obsessed teens follow a violent car chase in LA. The other segments which include a psychotic magician who obtains an object of great power, a homemade machine that opens a door to a parallel world, teenage skaters who become targets of a Mexican death cult ritual, and a sinister organization who tracks down a serial killer all tie into the main storyline.

V/H/S: Viral will have a limited theatrical release on November 21, 2014 and will hit VOD platforms on October 23, 2014. Enjoy the trailer below!

Some find beauty in watching the sun rise. Some see it painted boldly in a Van Gogh. Others however, find it in the most cruel and despicable act, murder.

Take Norman Bates, give him an extra disturbed brother with drive and self confidence, take the concept of killing and twist it until your hands have bled out your palms to the bone and what do you get?

One of the most unique serial killer films that will make you hope butterflies burst out of your chest known as The Divine Tragedies.

If you fear your death being ugly, just watch the trailer below and rest assured, it will be beautiful!

Help Fund The Newscaster

After finally catching up with submissions that were sent via email, tonight we decided to see if we missed any tweets from earlier in the month. One tweet stood out as they were reaching out to us for support of their horror film.

We simply replied back and asked to see a trailer as we always like to see the films that we promote first.

He replied back immediately and sent us the link.

Now keep in mind we have spent all day watching submissions, that were in the end disappointing to say the least.

When we saw the opening sequence to The Newscaster, we knew that we had hit horror gold and could not wait until tomorrow to promote.

From start to finish this is one of those rare films that make you feel glad they are planning a feature.

Now, one huge edge that this campaign has over other horror campaigns is that they have actually had success distributing a film. Natural Wipe Films have had distribution deals with HBO and Showtime of their previous film, A Cadaver Christmas(alternate title Zombies at Christmas) which got exposure both here in the US and abroad.

If there’s any campaign you want to feel good about backing then, The Newscaster, is the one.

For the sake of simplicity, if we could only use two names to best describe this film we would say Ron Burgundy meets Ted Bundy.

If you like the sound of that, watch the trailer below and help fund The Newscaster by contributing anything you can and sharing their campaign!
