Killcam: Live is a project currently operating on two fronts. On one hand, it's a film now shooting in the Los Angeles area. On the other hand, it is a bizarre interactive endeavor that is allowing horror fans to communicate with the film's characters and, apparently, influence the story's direction. Spearheaded by director John Darko - a producer on the short film Archetype - Killcam: Live stars Ben Begley, April Wade, Steven Martini, Sam Weller, Tracy Clifton and Derrick Oliver. According to Variety, the story "follows a group of students as they willingly agree to participate in a social experiment to explore the effects of dependence on technology and social media - with students isolated from each other and the only way to communicate via social media. »
Live interactive horror project Killcam: Live has added over 1.1 million viewers to its rapidly growing "Killmunity." The project, directed by John Darko, debuted on October 31st and runs through the end of the year. Killcam: Live stars April Wade, Ben Begley, Tracy Clifton, Derrick Oliver, Sam Weller, Emily Dykes, Diahnna Nicole Baxter, Billy Towers, Mirai Booth-Ong, and Rolence Patugan. Killcam: Live is the brain child of Wade and filmmaker Canyon Prince. n Killcam: Live, viewers across the world interact directly with the characters in the ongoing storyline, changing the way audiences are interacting with entertainment programming. Audiences have already witnessed the (fictional) brutal killings of three of the story's main characters and one surprise death. Some viewers become characters in the story itself, and others participate in "Cill Contests" in which they rip footage from the live and narrative story into their own recap videos. The »

Okay now, this is a good idea. All of us have sat in front of a movie and just hung our heads at the direction it took. Either some of the characters were too dopey or the story dragged, but we've all wished for an opportunity to grab a movie halfway through viewing it and change the outcome. Well, gorehounds, Killcam Live is going to give you that chance this Halloween.
Starting on October 31st viewers can go to KillcamLive.com and see the first video clips when they are uploaded. From there the audience will be able to interact with the characters from the film via Facebook and Twitter (@Killcam_Live). And according to filmmakers, the feedback from the audience will affect how the film plays out. Killcam Live will be released online in segments over the course of eight weeks.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors adaptation is in early development. Sounds familiar?
Well, of course, I’m sure you all remember this Super Nintendo game that was released back in 1993. And, just in case you’re wondering who will be responsible for this adaptation, we’re here to clear things out for you!
Filmmaker John Darko wants to get financing for the script he wrote based on the game. Apparently the film will be made independently, and, according to the latest reports from FirstShowing, the whole thing is described as “John Hughes meets Judd Apatow meets George A. Romero” or “a bit like Superbad + Zombieland + Home Alone.”
Confused so far?
Well, don’t look at me, I’m actually Mortal Kombat fan! But, let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about this game:
“The player chooses between two teenage characters, Zeke and Julie, or both in a two-player mode. They navigate suburban neighborhoods, »
When I was growing up in the 1990′s, I was addicted to Nintendo Power and the one of the games that stuck out in my head was Zombies Ate My Neighbors. Released in 1993, it was a run and gun game featuring two teenagers using squirt guns and other such wacky weaponry against the legions of the undead that had taken over their town (amongst other monsters like vampires and werewolves). When I finally got my hands on it for the Super Nintendo I ended up sucking so bad that I never picked it up again, but I still have fond memories of the game regardless.
Don’t worry, that slightly unnecessary story has a point; it turns out someone’s attempting to make it into a movie. First Showing reports that John Darko has written a script for the movie and is attempting to find financial backing to get it »

The 1993 run and gun video game Zombies Ate My Neighbours is being adapted into a feature length film. The video game was originally developed, distributed, and produced by LucasArts as a comical tribute to both classic and horror films of the 1950s through the 1980s. Now, a screenplay has been written, and has been described as “John Hughes meets Judd Apatow meets George A. Romero.” The video game which has all the makings of cult horror/comedy, became a cult classic years after its release. First Showing reports that the film takes place in an American suburb, where two best friends amongst a sea of teenage angst, battle for safety against the mysterious uprising of neighbourhood zombies.
Due to the theme of the game, it was subject to some censorship. This game was released before the Esrb came along and before then, Nintendo did not want anything violent in their »

Hmm, someone has read our 6 Horror Games We Want to See on the Big Screen breakdown. This sounds like it's a bit too early to report on - as the rights for the property are not even fully secured and the financing hasn't been locked in place - but filmmaker John Darko is trying to get an adaptation of the video game Zombies Ate My Neighbors! off of the ground. The title was made popular on the Sega Genesis and Super Nes systems. The thrust of the game is you run around killing, at first, zombies in suburbia until you move on, level to level, acquiring sundry weapons and taking on familiar horror monsters. First Showing broke the news about Darko's project, which is being co-produced by April Wade and Ahmed al Baker. The site says they're borrowing "a bit" from »
