"Doubles" is a captivating short film that tells a very interesting story of our universe colliding and merging with an alternate universe. Over time a duplicate version of every person and inanimate object on earth start to appear. During this complete madness, a hopeless romantic finds himself in a position to win the heart of his dream girl's double.
The movie was written and directed by Jacob Motz, and it’s a great concept that he brilliantly brought to life. The short has some witty dialogue with some very amusing moments that I’m sure a lot of you will enjoy. On top of that, the performances are great. I’m sure some of you will recognize Brea Grant from the TV show Heroes.

Nerdist Industries has debuted a fall show perfect for this Halloween season. The company acquired by Legendary Entertainment premiered a new episode of The Real Housewives of Horroron October 30, 2014, with special guest star Chris Hardwick. Created by Kevin Pereira (from G4’s Attack of the Show) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), The Real Housewives of Horror parodies all those reality TV shows about the daily lives and “struggles” of rich housewives. However, the web series takes on a decidedly darker yet more comedic angle as the women in Nerdist’s version are all married to or interested in monsters, killers, or demonic spirits. In the newest episode “Dawn of the Dawn: The Dawnening,” Grant’s character Heather decides to host a speed-dating night for her friend Barbara Dawn (Brooke Seguin), who’s just getting over the death of her late, hatchet-wielding husband Cage Trollman. Barbara meets several eligible men, including »

Recently, his short film Sex Boss premiered at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival. Additionally, he's beaten Ninja Gaiden 1 & 2 for Nintendo without the aid of Game Genie or cheat codes.

Just about a year ago, in November of 2013 to be exact, we shared the Nerdist's killer video entitled "The Real Housewives of Horror," which people were clamoring to be made into a full-on series. That wish has been granted.
From the Press Release:
Summer may be coming to a close, but fear not! Nerdist Industries has a veritable cornucopia of new content premiering this fall to get you through the coming months.

Written and directed by John Schneider (“The Dukes of Hazzard”), Smothered is a kooky horror comedy bursting with blood-soaked cameos from the genre’s greatest icons such as Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, R. A. Mihailoff, Malcolm Danare, and Don Shanks.
When the bogeymen find themselves on the other side of the blade – wielded by a big-busted blonde, no less – they pull out all the stops.
We got a chance to chat with Schneider one to one, and here’s what he had to say about cinematically killing these guys off one by one. And be sure to check back tomorrow for my partner in crime, Doctor Gash's, follow-up interview.
Dread Central: You’ve assembled a really great cast for Smothered. Can you talk about how you approached them to play parodies of horror villains, and what some of the reactions were?
John Schneider: I've known Kane and Malcolm for years. »

Stars: Brea Grant, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Don Shanks, R.A Mihailoff, Michael Berryman, John Kassir, Dane Rhodes, Shanna Forrestall, John Schneider, Adria Tennor, Andrew Bowen, Amy Brassette | Written and Directed by John Schneider
Horror comedy Smothered is written and directed by actor turned director John Schneider. Yes, you did read that correctly… Actor John Schneider, who many will know from family-friendly productions and his roles as Bo Duke on Dukes of Hazzard and more recently Jonathan Kent, aka Superman’s dad, on Smallville, has turned his hand to writing and directing in more recent years but who knew he had a penchant for penning horror? Admittedly he has had roles in low-budget monster movies such as Super Shark, Snow Beast and Lake Placid 2 but I had no idea he was such a horror fan – he certainly has to be to create such a love letter to the horror community as Smothered. »

Described as the horror version of The Expendables, "Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider's Smothered is noteworthy for boasting the largest number of horror icons ever to grace the screen at the same time, which is a claim that certainly grabs hold of our attention.

Fairlight Films has released a new behind-the-scenes promo for the upcoming horror-comedy Smothered, which is written and directed by Hollywood legend John Schneider (Smallville, Nip/Tuck), and sees horror icons Kane Hodder (Freddy vs. Jason, Jason X), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera), Don Shanks (Halloween 5, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer), and R.A Mihailoff (Leatherface : Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Pumpkinhead 2), playing themselves in a scenario that sees them attending a small, disheartening horror-convention on Friday the 13th.
Running out of patience but principally money, the group accept a cash-offer to go and scare-up the local Rv park – but things take a surprising, dark turn when they arrive. The tables are turned as the monsters of the movie screen become the prey!
Early reviews have compared the film – which had it’s official premiere in New Orleans in mid-May – to »

Though the killer in 2001′s Valentine wears a cherub mask, they are far from angelic. After all, tricking a potential victim into eating chocolates filled with squirming maggots is a pretty devilish thing to do.

“The 50 Best Horror Movies You’ve Never Seen focuses on 50 lesser-known horror flicks hailed by critics and genre fans as “absolute must-sees” and are given the spotlight with fun, engaging commentary from journalists, directors, actors and critics in a countdown like no other.

Sometimes it doesn't take much to sell me on a premise. Killogy is one of those, where the notion of three over-the-top criminals squaring off against voodoo magic is too good to resist.
You may already be familiar with Killogy, an Idw comic by Alan Roberts that mixes horror and comedy into a concoction of splatstick madness. Featuring the likenesses of Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, "The Sopranos"), Marky Ramone (formerly of The Ramones) and Brea Grant ("Dexter"), it seems like a no-brainer that this could translate quite easily into some kind of show or movie.
Enter "The Boondocks" creator Rodney Barnes, who will do exactly that. Deadline reports that both Barnes and Roberts will serve as executive producers on a Killogy animated series, which will see Vincent, Ramone and Grant lending their vocal talents to the proceedings.
