The legend of forgotten horror filmmaker Karl Atticus will finally be explored in depth at the London premiere of Mortal Remains, an award-winning feature film to be presented at the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley, London on April 14,2014:
Mortal Remains is a “docu-thriller” which delves into the shadowy story of Karl Atticus, a notorious U.S. filmmaker who has been mysteriously eradicated from cinematic history for reasons unknown. Interviews with film historians and aficionados – among them Eduardo Sanchez, co-director of The Blair Witch Project – reveal that the true story of Atticus’ past may have been far more sinister than the shadowy legacy he left behind.
Produced by filmmakers Christian Stavrakis and Mark Ricche, the film has screened at several American festivals including the Spooky Movie Film Festival hosted by the American Film Institute; the Terror Film Festival in Philadelphia, where it was nominated for five awards and won two (Audience Favorite and Best Editing); and HorrorQuest Film Fest in Atlanta, where it won for Best Directing.
Dark tales include the stories of a young girl who returns from the grave to haunt a small New England village, a scary witch that possesses a deep cave in Tennessee, an eerie castle in New England haunted by the spirit of a disturbed scientist who once performed frightening experiments there.
Abstract Forces has released the first teaser trailer of their kickstarter funded Horror film I Am Alone.
I Am Alone focuses on a survival reality TV crew (played by Torchwood’s Gareth David -Lloyd) and his Cameraman (played by Gunner Wright) who witness the spread of a zombie like virus turning the living into the living dead.
I Am Alone was entirely crowd funded and made possible by the hundreds of supporter’s worldwide. No release date is set. (Currently in Post Production). www.iamalonethemovie.com
I lived in a house from hell for four years, from age eleven to almost sixteen. There was constantly something happening. Doors flying open and shut, voices, footsteps. Nothing ever stayed where you put it. I was alone there a lot because both my parents worked and I was constantly terrified.
One of the most gut-level disturbing things though was the little girl in my bathroom. Every time I walked past my bathroom door (which was constantly since it was right outside my bedroom) I saw a little girl with blond curled hair and a rose-colored dress. She just stood there, staring, looking like a photograph from 1905. I started keeping the door closed so I could walk by without seeing her, but she was always there when I opened it. Once I stepped in past her, I couldn’t see her anymore but I could feel her there. She scared me, but I felt really sorry for her because she was trapped there, just like me, but probably forever.
As the years went by and things in the house continued to get worse, she started seeming… darker. I started feeling like she wasn’t really a little girl. I knew there was something ugly in the house and I felt like it was presenting this sympathetic image to me. Then I started thinking I was completely losing my mind.
One day, when I was 14, I had a friend from out of town come stay with me for a week. I hadn’t told her anything whatsoever about the house because I didn’t think she would come if I did. Right after she got there we were sitting in my room and she left to go to the bathroom. About a minute later she walked back in with a puzzled look on her face and said “So, there’s a little girl in your bathroom”. “Um, I, yeah she hangs out in there. Blond hair?” “Curls? Pink dress? Yeah. You know that’s not really a little girl, don’t you?” I almost threw up. I was so relieved and terrified and excited and ready to run out of the house screaming. She wouldn’t use my bathroom the rest of the week and I started using it as little as possible without pissing off my parents (who did not want to believe).
Eventually we moved out and I could not have been happier. I distanced myself from it mentally as much as I could. Then, when I was 18, I took another friend on a road trip to pack up a few things I’d left in the house (my parents hadn’t managed to sell it, and wouldn’t for 5 more years). The minute we got on the property, my friend seemed uncomfortable. When we came around the bend in the long, steep driveway, he went completely white. I could tell something was wrong, but he insisted he was OK, so we got to work. After a while he asked to use the bathroom and I directed him to mine. Not 20 seconds after he left, he came running back in, gasping for breath, andand slammed the bedroom door behind him. He started babbling about a little blond girl who isn’t really a little girl. All of a sudden he went dead still, looked me in the eye, and very solemnly said “She’s not happy. With you. You left, and you weren’t supposed to”. We threw whatever we could grab in two trips in my car (after I walked him to another bathroom and waited outside the door) and got the fuck out at top speed.
An outstanding Horror Short and a must watch.
A young college girl had only one destiny…that of being sacrificed.
She did not even know or had any idea about this, she lived a ‘normal’ and happy life…until the day of her being sacrificed arrived and the whole truth emerged.
The Horror Movies Blog loved the way this film was created, the plot is very fascinating and the acting, especially that of the ‘Mother’ is brilliant.

Order of the Ram follows Mary, a young, well-spoken college girl who is well liked within the small town she resides. Suddenly her life is turned upside down when she awakes, bound within a dense wood, to find herself staring into the eyes of “Mother”.
Before her stand the Order of the Ram, a satanic cult lead by “Mother”, who’s pure ambition in life, is to bring fourth their saviour and to achieve this they have chosen Mary.
On the surface Order of the Ram is a throwback horror movie paying homage to cult horror from the 1970s, but underneath the film explores the idea of blind belief within religion, the extremes one will go in the name of god and the horrifying effects extreme belief can have on the innocent who encounter such people.
Written and directed by Scott Lyus the film reunites the same crew who made his last short, Supernova, with this picture being co-produced by the lead actor of that film, Michael James Dean

Christmas is coming! and what better way then celebrate it by organizing or attending a costume party?!
Below, you may enjoy a short horror make-up tutorial which would perfect to apply, especially those that love Nightmare Before Christmas!
The Opportunity Village Magical Forest, one of the area’s most popular and beloved holiday traditions, has invited EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL to celebrate the season at the event by singing their favorite Christmas carols.
On Monday, December 23rd, the cast and crew will be taking pics, signing autographs, and singing some of their favorite Christmas Carols to entertain Magical Forest attendees. The entire cast of the show, as well as crew members, will be at Magical Forest in full force, singing Christmas Carols. All together it will be a small chorus of about 20 people singing some of the season’s most cherished carols a cappella.
“The Magical Forest is something that everyone looks forward to at this time of year,” said Sirc Michaels, the producer and director of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL. “And to be a part of that is a real honor for myself and the entire team behind EVIL DEAD.”
For those members of the public who worry that a show known for crude jokes, dancing zombies, and blood-covered fans might not seem like a fit for this sort of event, the cast and crew will be leaving the adult themes of EVIL DEAD at the venue and are looking forward to delivering feel-good, family-friendly renditions of holiday classics to attendees of the Magical Forest.
