After ravenous corpses topple society and consume most of the world’s population, freighter captain Henk Martigan is shocked to receive a distress call. Eighty survivors beg him to whisk them away to the relative safety of the South Pacific. Martigan wants to help, but to rescue anyone he must first pass through the nightmare backwater of the Curien island chain.
A power struggle is brewing in the Curiens. On one side, the billionaire inventor of the mind-control collar seeks to squeeze all the profit he can out of the apocalypse. Opposing him is the charismatic leader of a ghoul-worshipping cargo cult. When a lunatic warlord berths an aircraft carrier off the coast and stakes his own claim on the islands, the stage is set for a bloody showdown.
To save the remnants of humanity (and himself), Captain Martigan must defeat all three of his ruthless new foes and brave the gruesome horrors of…THE GHOUL ARCHIPELAGO.
We surely love Zombie Novels. This horror book has many twists and keeps the reader on edge to read the entire book. ”The Ghoul Archipelago” is a must read to all zombie fiction fanatics.

Like ghosts? Then you’ll love Poveglia, a small, deserted island in the Venetian lagoon that’s going on the auction block next month. It’s been called “the island of madness,” “Hell,” and “the most haunted place on Earth.” You’d just love it to pieces.
No, but seriously, this place sounds scary. The trouble started back in the late 19th century when Poveglia served as a checkpoint for ships going to Venice. After a pair of ships carrying plague victims arrived in 1793, the island was sealed off and turned into a quarantine zone for people with infectious diseases, a role it served for over a century. It goes without saying that many of these people died on the island during this time, leading to the widespread belief that Poveglia is haunted. It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.
These days, Poveglia’s pretty quiet. Still owned by the Italian government, it’s been abandoned for the past 50 years, though ghost hunters like to make the pilgrimage whenever they can. One American TV presenter even says he was briefly possessed while visiting the island. The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over. No price information is available yet—but they think it would make a great destination hotel.
But it’s a gem. It really is. St. Marks Square is a stone’s throw away. The landscaping is just gorgeous, and just think of all the stories you’d be able to tell after a few years living amongst the spirits of old plague victims and mental patients. Of course, you may have to perform an exorcism or two, but hey, nothing’s perfect. Call it a fixer-upper.
London Wall. EC2.
In April 1907 a letter appeared in the City Press concerning the old section of the London Wall that now cowers beneath the gleaming white modernity of the Museum of London.
A reader told how, on one Sunday night, he had been passing this relic when he noticed a hand and arm “stretched out from the railings to bar my passage.”
He was so alarmed by this that he jumped into the road and, for a moment, turned his back to the railings. On summoning up the courage to look round, he saw a man in dark clothes, walking back to the wall. When he reached it he “seemed to walk right into it.”
The bemused witness recalled how he had heard no sound of footsteps, and told how he had returned the next morning to examine the spot but could find nothing that threw any light on the mystery of what, or who, it was that he had encountered.
Brian Kingston, a captain with good intentions but a heavy drinking problem, jumps at the opportunity to make more money than he can imagine on a deep-sea dive aboard the search and rescue submarine, The Betty Loo. He quickly discovers just what he’s gotten himself, and his crew, into.
The Betty Loo will be going to suicidal depths on a mission to rescue The Peacemaker, a sub once thought to be unsinkable. After receiving an anonymous threat on the day of departure, Brian is left with no choice but to continue on the mission. But the depths of the sea aren’t the only problems ahead. Upon arrival to The Peacemaker, he realizes that though not all the bodies are dead, there is no one to rescue. The crewmembers, both old and new, have to trust one another and fight for their lives against the adapting undead or join them in the floating graveyard that is The Peacemaker.
Z-Boat is an original zombie book that keeps the reader guessing. This is an great book and a must read to all horror & zombie movie fans.
A man winds his way home through a series of corridors. With each step, his familiar surroundings begin to twist and morph; from something cold and unwelcoming into a dangerous and life threatening labyrinth of fear.
As the corridors close in around him, the man desperately struggles to get to the safety of his apartment. Nothing, however, is more disturbing than what waits for him beyond the door.
To make all this happen, this horror movie currently has a campaign running on Indiegogo for Chain with investment perks starting at £3.00. Click here to check it out.
A mixed martial arts action-adventure, BRUTAL is helmed by writer/director Donald Lawrence Flaherty. The film features fight sequences created by two of Hollywood’s top stunt performers Colin Follenweider and Chris Torres.
Staring Morgan Benoit (THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM), David Mattey (HANCOCK) and Stacy Jorgensen (GREY SKIES), BRUTAL is also the feature film debut for former All-American and New York Giants offensive lineman Jeff Hatch.
BRUTAL centers on Trevor (Morgan Benoit), abducted from his backyard at the age of fifteen by an unseen alien presence. Forced into nearly two decades of no-holds-barred fights against other abductees inside an unearthly mixed martial arts arena, Trevor has evolved from an innocent boy into a brutal fighting machine.
Derek, (Jeff Hatch) an ambulance chasing lawyer, is the latest lab-rat abductee forced to fight Trevor. As the two men exchange ever-increasing beatings over the course of weeks and months, the brutality of their existence and the true nature of their humanity is slowly revealed.
With elements of THE TWILIGHT ZONE and FIGHT CLUB, BRUTAL explores through science fiction, allegory and psychological drama, man’s violent nature and our propensity to commit unthinkable acts of violence against each other. Yet through this prism of brutality our capacity to love one another, even in the worst of circumstances is celebrated.
“Most people ignored the reports on the news. But they became too frequent, they became too real. And soon, they began happening down the street. Then the internet died. The television and radio went silent. The phone stopped ringing. And we couldn’t look outside anymore.” What happens in Bird Box? Is it the end of the world? Is it an invasion? Close your eyes and do not peek….since something strange is surely happening. If you go outside you’ll end up insane.
Bird Box is an incredible book, well written and very enjoyable. A must read. Rating: (9/10)

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.”
