'Orgy of the Damned' to open in the U.S. on Halloween 2015

30 October 2015 11:31 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Orgy of the Damned, directed by Creep Creepersin, is a fun and romantic, yet dark and erotic take on vampires with a unique visual style that pays homage to the classic European exploitation films.

Check out the interview by Dawna Lee Heising with actor Domiziano Arcangeli, who plays a 300 year old vampire in the film, below the official details.

From The Press Release:

Orgy of The Damned is beautiful to look at and enjoyable to watch, this new movie is sure to make a name for itself and quickly become a cult classic. It has many key motives that make it a compelling choice for every cult movie lover. From its dark and brooding tale of vampires to its usage of today’s Hollywood club scene, the film uniquely portrays a quite unusual and incestuous family of vamps and how they spend their time. They are existentially bored, »

DVD Review – We Are Still Here (2015)

19 October 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We Are Still Here, 2015.

Directed by Ted Geoghegan.

Starring Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Lisa Marie, Larry Fessenden, Monte Markham and Elissa Dowling.


A family grieving over the loss of their son move out to the country, but they are not alone in their new home.

The recent trend of revisiting the 1970s and ‘80s as a setting for horror movies has produced some mixed results; from the authentic chills of The House of the Devil and The Conjuring to less successful attempts such as The Quiet Ones it seems that setting horror movies in the decades that produced arguably the most creative and effective scares has become something of a stylistic crutch upon which modern filmmakers can sell their films.

We Are Still Here is the directorial debut of Ted Geoghegan (producer on The ABC’s of Death 2) and begins like most modern low-budget horror movies by establishing a mood, »

Exclusive: Staci Layne Wilson & Arielle Brachfield Talk Good Family Times; Brand New Still

21 March 2015 5:56 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The husband/wife filmmaking team of Michael Biehn and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn have been working nonstop over the last couple of years, with a massive amount of independent genre features that they’ve either starred in, produced or even directed themselves. Films like The Victim and Hidden In The Woods are just a couple of the ones they’ve already completed, with more than a dozen others in various stages of production. Building a solid roster of filmmakers, actors and various other people in the team that they tend to work with, it’s obvious that Blanc/Biehn Productions is a force to be reckoned with and slowing down isn’t a possibility for them.

One partnership that has this writer pretty excited to hear about, is the partnership with longtime film critic/filmmaker Staci Layne Wilson, who has already directed one feature for the company (Fetish Factory) and is now working on another, »
