Invasion of the Killer Cicadas has just reached their goal on Kickstarter. They are raising money to finish a few final scenes and in order to produce DVDs in time for the premiere, which is expected in May/June.
From the creators of “Young Blood: Evil Intentions” comes an epic Sci-Fi adventure you don’t want to miss! When a humble town is plagued by killer cicadas, the situation seems hopeless. After two dimwitted service men spray the cicadas with chemicals mistaken for pesticide, these little buggers mutate to an uncontrollable size! Soon the planet is in peril as these colossal cicadas effortlessly demolish buildings and crush poor citizens! It seems there is only one man who can stop them before it’s too late. Will he be able to save the day? Or will the world fall victim to the “Invasion of the Killer Cicadas”?
Myron- “We can’t thank our supporters enough! This helps out tremendously and goes a super long way. We set our original goal under budget for the film and the campaign has performed better than we could predict. Since there is still some time left in our campaign, we are setting our new goal at $2,000. If we are able to raise that much, we will not only have more funding to further improve the film itself, but also be able to improve the DVD packaging and other products. It will also help us enter the movie into film festivals. To show our appreciation, we will also send all of our Kickstarter backers some additional Killer Cicada memorabilia.”

Could zombies actually exist? What would it take for human corpses to rise up and hunt the living? We often think zombies are scientifically impossible — but actually, they’re just very implausible. Here’s one way The Walking Dead could happen in real life.
An aspect of human zombification we need to tackle is basic zombie physiology. In virtually every zombie scenario, zombies are able to function despite increasing levels of physical deterioration due to injury or decomposition. There has to be some mechanism for transmitting neural impulses from the brain to various body parts, and for providing energy to muscles so they can keep operating.
The most common science fictional explanation for zombie outbreaks is a virus — but viruses and bacterial infections are not known for building large new physical structures within the body. So let’s count viruses out. Instead, the need for a mechanism to activate deteriorating body parts actually provides the cornerstone of what is, in my opinion, the strongest theory: fungal infection.
We know that fungi can infect humans. We also know that fungal networks exist in most of the world’s forests. These mycorrhizal networks have a symbiotic relationship with trees and other plants in the forest, exchanging nutrients for mutual benefit. These networks can be quite large, and there are studies that demonstrate the potential for chemical signals to be transmitted from one plant to another via the mycorrhizal network. That, in turn, means that fungal filaments could perform both vascular and neural functions within a corpse.
This leads us to the following scenario: microscopic spores are inhaled, ingested, or transmitted via zombie bite. The spores are eventually dispersed throughout the body via the bloodstream. Then they lie dormant. When the host dies, chemical signals (or, more accurately, the absence of chemical signals) within the body that occur upon death trigger the spores to activate, and begin growing. The ensuing fungal network carries nutrients to muscles in the absence of respiration or normal metabolism.
Part of the fungal network grows within the brain, where it interfaces with the medulla and cerebellum, as well as parts of the brain involving vision, hearing and possibly scent. Chemicals released by the fungi activate basic responses within these brain areas. The fungi/brain interface is able to convert the electrochemical signals of neurons into chemical signals that can be transmitted along the fungal network that extends through much of the body. This signal method is slow and imperfect, which results in the uncoordinated movements of zombies. And this reliance on the host’s brain accounts for the “headshot” phenomenon, in which grievous wounds to the brain or spine seem to render zombies fully inert! If you are fascinated by zombies or maybe would like to have a zombie kostüm, then visit the Horror Shop.
I don’t know why but I really love old horror movies, this one is a good watch too.
A group of people are trapped in a large movie theater in West Berlin that is infected by ravenous demons who proceed to kill and posses the humans one-by-one, thereby multiplying their numbers.
In 1980 a mother took her son to get a present on his 10th birthday. They went to an old abandoned campground, Little Farm on the River. She took him to a camper and asked him to step inside. Once he did, she grabbed a screwdriver from the counter and stabbed him over and over again. Now thirty years later a group of friends go to the old campground to celebrate a Birthday party of their own.
The Horror Movies Blog review: “A scary and entertaining film that is worth watching”.
Amazing video possibly showing a time travel with person entering our dimension and saving a person from a traffic accident! Is this a visitor from our future or another parallel world in a different timeline? Is it a spirit or ghost, maybe an angel manifesting from the beyond?
Check out this ghost footage that was taken in Mexico. Do you think it is real or not?

S.F. Brownrigg, is one of the unsung heroes of drive in horror. His first film Don’t Look in the Basement was a theatrical smash hit in the early seventies. And even today many horror directors credit Brownrigg for inspiration when they began their careers.
Don’t Look in the Basement was the first film to ever receive an X rating from the MPAA for violence, which also put it on the coveted “Video Nasties” list in the UK. One of the first ‘inmates take over the asylum” pictures, Basement brought an eerie and disturbing look into the mentally ill. The film ended with the patients and doctors murdered, and one survivor, Sam, left alone with the bodies.
Forty years later, Anthony Brownrigg, S.F. Brownriggs son, and director of the award winning Red Victoria, has teamed up with David Rennke “Pearl”, Daniel Redd of RDM Productions, and Andrew Sensenig “Upstream Color” to bring a sequel to the long time favorite to the screen.
While the specific plot has been kept tightly under wraps, the sequel revolves around what happened to the only surviving patient from the original film, and what happens when he is brought back to the original clinic where the grizzly murders occurred.
“The film is more of a paranormal thriller than a drive in horror” says Brownrigg. “Dad wanted to produce a sequel in the eighties that revolved around the paranormal, and we took a lot of cues from what he wanted to do. It’s bloody, for certain, but doesn’t compete with the original.”
Many of the original cast, and crew are also involved in one way or another. Daniel Redds father Robert Redd, was the owner of PSI film labs that developed the film for the original. Camilla Carr, from the original cast has come back to play a different role in the sequel. And Jack Bennett II, son of effects artist Jack Bennett will join in through post production for visual effects. And even Libby Hall, mother of Anthony who was known in the sixties for “The Naked Witch” a Larry Buchannan film, has come out of retirement to round out the cast.
Andrew Sensenig “Upstream Color” will play the lead, along with Arianne Martin “Red Victoria, Other Side of Paradise”, and Frank Mosley “Wuss, Upstream Color”. Also cast are Earl Browning II, Jim O’Rear, Scott Tepperman, and Megan Emerick.
The script was written by Anthony Brownrigg, and Megan Emerick, and the film will be shot on location at the original house used in the 1973 film located in Tehuacana Texas. Principal photography begins in late March 2014 with an expected release later in the year.

the new survivors for a few days, until conflict arises between Ashley and the Officer and they
decide to continue their quest for the Dark Rider.
They find the Dark Rider in a Psycho Ward. The battle that ensues is the re-encounter of two
old enemies, The Officer and the Rider, settling old debts older than time. In a final duel, they
