I've been following the buzz about the upcoming horror film Crepitus via the Twitter account of young actress Chalet Brannan who stars as Sam in the film.
As details slowly begin to surface about the movie starring horror veteran Bill Moseley, an interesting contest for the film has reared its head.
Ginger Knight Entertainment is holding a contest that will allow four people to have a photo of themselves (from the age of ten) include in a sinister family album that is featured in the film Crepitus.
To enter the contest, click the link here, and read all the details about Crepitus below.
From The Press Release
Ginger Knight entertainment has recently finished filming one of two shoots for Crepitus, starring Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's rejects, Repo! The Generic Opera, Army of Darkness), directed by Haynze Whitmore. This is »
Celebrating 30 years worth of fanaticism and community in the cult of Ashley ‘Ash’ Williams.
Thanks to our Star Trekian utopia of VOD insta-satisfaction (“Number One, slap The Greasy Strangler on the view screen!”), it’s becoming difficult to remember the ruthless savagery of that bygone VHS hunt. I spent far too many days roaming my hometown and neighboring cities chasing down lesser-known Kurosawas, the Critters sequels, and the seemingly always elusive pre-Mad Max apocalyptic mindfuck, A Boy and His Dog. Too often I had to settle for less, and rewatch Police Academy 4 instead of the highbrow hilarity of Zapped! cuz some other Scott Baio devotee had the local Power Video on stakeout. If your tastes in cinema aligned with the Blockbuster new release guarantee then you were golden, but us degenerates with a predilection for Roger Corman, and movies made before our births were doomed to the endless quest.

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
Time travel is all the rage on television. Between Legends of Tomorrow, Timeless, Frequency, Time after Time, 12 Monkeys and last year’s 11.22.63, which I’m currently watching, forget about the butterfly effect; this is deja vu. Yet, Fox decided to add another time traveler to the schedule: the ultra-goofy buddy comedy Making History. I gotta say though, it’s not exactly living up to its title…
Created by Julius Sharpe (Family Guy), Making History is decidedly more Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure than Primer. It centers on Dan (Adam Pally), a lowly, average guy who spends his work days in a janitorial position in a local college and his weekends (and occasional Tuesdays) traveling back to 1775, via a duffel bag time-traveler, to meet his Colonel girlfriend, Deborah (Leighton Meester). Inherited from his late father, Dan is unambitious but certainly not malicious with his gift. »

I’m a fan of The Walking Dead, but I have many complaints about how the show often presents itself. One thing that it does well though is the slow build-up, and it does it confidently. That is why episode 10 is a good sign for season seven, as the army to take on Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) begins to form.
Having found Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam), Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group also discover a new collection of survivors who at first are aggressive. While Rick is trying to form an alliance with the new group and being tested, Daryl (Norman Reedus) meets an old friend on the outskirts of the Kingdom.
It is always interesting to see new characters appear in The Walking Dead, »

But for his next project, he’ll go exploring a little closer to home. Raimi has been set to direct a movie about the Bermuda […]

Ash Vs Evil Dead season 3 is definitely happening, baby! But a new direction for Ash and the gang is in store...
It's official! Ash Vs Evil Dead season 3 will happen on the Starz network (was there ever any doubt?) so you can expect a whole new season of wise-crackin' Deadite-slayin' insanity from Ashley J. Williams and pals later this year.
The announcement was made at New York Comic Con, and Bruce Campbell himself has also since teased to EW that season 3 will take an epic turn for Ash.
“I can’t say much because we’re going to try and do some crazy shit,” Campbell said. “But we’re probably going to crack more into Ash’s big picture story. »
At last—Ash makes his way back to the exact moment in time where he can stop the threat that almost killed Gabrielle, Xena and all life on planet Earth! But to do so he has to go in undercover as the King of Memphis and hire Xena to help him locate the lost island of Eden. There they meet Larson, the long ago abandoned third wheel to Adam and Eve—he’s out for a revenge only a lover scorned can! Can Xena and Ash prevent him from turning Earth into a Garden of Evil?

Some people loved it, some people hated it, but Donnie Darko was definitely a movie that captivated audiences both with Jake Gyllenhaal and his sister Maggie's performance, and the fact that the movie was left open to interpretation. It is rare that an open-ended movie becomes this big of a cult hit, but Donnie Darko did just that and fans still wonder today if they got it right about the entire movie being a parallel universe set up to create the wrongs of the primary universe, or if it was simply just a mind f%@k.
We may get to learn the actual truth in the upcoming years as director Richard Kelly is questioned about the reissue (4k in some places of the world) that would disregard the almost unseen S. Darko (a failed offshoot). He is asked by HMV if we could return to the Donnie Darko world in a sequel. »

In a 180-degree tone shift from Blair’s previous film (the moody, brooding psych-thriller Deadly Revisions), Garden Party Massacre is a fast-paced romp where both catsup and blood flow freely. Based on his FANtastic Horror Film Festival winning script, writer/director Gregory Blair helms the film which tells the tale of a friendly backyard gathering that goes awry when an unexpected guest shows up… With a pickax and an attitude! Things go south from there as the guests try to survive.
Blair compares the film to other comedy horror features like Shaun of the Dead and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and says:
I love films that successfully walk that line between horror and comedy, whether it’s witty and referential like Scream or giddy low camp like Army of Darkness.

This column is the last one I’ll be writing under an Obama Presidency. This is also the last Tuesday of the Obama Presidency. Though I have some disagreements with his policies, I’ll miss him as our President. So I figure this would be a good time to talk about some of his impact on the comics industry.
Barack Obama himself is no stranger to comics. He’s talked about his comic collecting and his fondness of Conan The Barbarian and the Spider-Man comics in the past, even if he forgets the hyphen in Spider-Man sometimes.
Obama has appeared in many comics as well. You can find him in comics for nearly a decade since 2007 when he was a Senator. He’s appeared in comics published by Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, Idw, Dynamite and more. Everything from Savage Dragon and Youngblood to Army of Darkness and The Other Dead, »
