Substitute Teaching Takes a Terrifying Turn in the Horror Comedy Short Film The Sub

9 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Substitute teaching can be scary on its own terms, but when the faculty and student body are susceptible to Lovecraftian horrors that threaten the Earth's very existence, it can be downright horrifying. That doesn't mean it's without humor, though, as evidenced by Dan Samiljan's new short film The Sub, which you can watch in its entirety right here on Daily Dead.

"Recently completing its festival circuit, The Sub was an official selection of the Nashville Film Fest, the Independent Film Fest of Boston and Scotland’s Dead by Dawn International Horror Film Fest.

The Sub features practical creature effects by Tony Gardner and his Oscar-nominated team at Alterian, Inc. (the Chucky franchise, Bad Grandpa, Army of Darkness), stop-motion animation by Max Winston (Robot Chicken, The SpongeBob Movie), and a cameo by Scream Queen Heather Langenkamp ("Nancy" from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise).

Watch: Amusing Chicken or Egg Claymation Short Film 'Time Chicken'

19 April 2017 5:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"In the beginning there was faith that the egg was the start of all life. Then came reason that the egg must have come from a great chicken." So what came first: the chicken or the egg? The eternal, unanswerable question finally gets addressed in this amusing, wacky short film titled Time Chicken. This claymation short was written, directed and animated by Nick Black, who made it over two years using Canon DSLRs and handmade sets from various objects he found. It's a totally wacky but incredibly enjoyable short film, that does have touches of "Robot Chicken", but still feels like something original. You just need to watch and enjoy because while it might seem odd, it's so much fun and will make you laugh. Plus it's under 6 minutes. Thank you to Ben Aston for the tip on this short.

“Fifty years have passed… but I do not age.”

No, this isn’t the opening line from Christie Brinkley’s latest skincare infomercial, but rather a chilling bit of inner dialogue from the titular hero of Adult Swim’s upcoming Samurai Jack revival.

Maisie Williams Goes Prehistoric For Aardman Animation Early Man

17 January 2017 6:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With six seasons of Game of Thrones already under her belt, Maisie Williams is no stranger to dabbling with history on screen, but The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the young actress is poised to journey even further back in time – all the way to the Bronze Age for Aardman’s prehistoric animation Early Man.

Rubbing shoulders with Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston on the film’s casting docket, we understand Williams will play the part of Goona, a “gallant and indomitable rebel” who strikes up an unusual friendship with Dug (Redmayne), the bumbling lead of Early Man. From there, our two mismatched heroes navigate a clash between the Stone Age and Bronze Age civilizations, and will no doubt cause quite the ruckus while attempting to do so.

Hiddleston, meanwhile, recently climbed on board to play Lord Nooth, a ridiculously pompous governor/tyrant who hails from the Bronze Age town. »
