"The Inspired" featured a wholesome and pleasant family portrait... if the Addams Family is your thing, that is.
Breen Frazier (who wrote this Criminal Minds episode) served up the second half of a gruesome and utterly lovely story, one that featured a family who put the "diss" in "dysfunction." There was a mother who was a vindictive narcissist and a pair of psychopathic twins - one delusional and one vindictive - along with a schizophrenic father. The dad in this story was by comparison a ray of sunshine:
Morgan: We're looking for a Mr. Bill Robbins.
Robbins: The sun and the moon have arrived. I'm ready to join you in your golden chariot.
Reid: We'd like to ask you a few questions, if you have a moment?
Robbins: Yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes yes! My life is the answer to your questions. | permalink

Sometimes in life there are rules you can’t break, but everyone especially in their younger years goes through life lessons that they must experience rather than be told. Such is the case of the teenage reaper in Peter Dukes’ Dream Seekers Productions’ Little Reaper.
We’ve had the pleasure of covering Peter Dukes’ work before with the two shorts A Goblin’s Tale and The Beast. You can check out those reviews here, but you’re here for the reaping. So take out those earbuds and check out this film.

It’s no secret that we here at Dread Central are stalwart supporters of indie filmmakers so it’s a pleasure to bring you a first look at Peter Dukes’ engaging horror-comedy short Little Reaper as well as some exclusive stills, a poster, and word on his next project.
Written, directed and produced by Dukes, the film, a project by Dream Seekers Productions, stars Athena Baumeister in the titular role as the Grim Reaper’s (actor John Paul Ouvrier) teenage daughter, who when tasked with handling her patriarch’s daily duties, comes up rather short and with some rather amusing results. Actors John Michael Herndon, Katharine Stapleton, Allisyn Ashley Arm (of Disney channel fame), Katy Townsend and Sorsha Morava round out the cast.
“Death is a common theme in my work,” said Dukes of Little Reaper, which he funded with additional financing from Little Reaper executive producer Danny Derakhshan and associate producers Melissa Cottingham, »

We return with the latest edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting the recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes details on a comic anthology series featuring Alice Cooper, UK premiere details for Big Ass Spider!, information on the Karen Black fund, and much more:
Details on the Karen Black Fund: “Karen has been waging a battle for over two years with cancer. She has not talked about this publicly because she was hoping it would be cured and she could call herself a cancer survivor. Karen was diagnosed with ampullary cancer in November of 2010. After suffering through nausea, fainting and losing over thirty pounds, she was finally declared Ned – No Evidence of Disease in July. But by December 2011 a small tumor developed and another surgery was in order, which left her completely bed-ridden. Her cancer seemed conquered though. By spring 2012 she was doing a lot better »
