Horror Highlights: Intruder, Traders, The Dooms Chapel Horror, Rise Of The Black Flame #1

A quiet night at home turns into a frightening game of cat-and-mouse in the official trailer for IFC Midnight’s Intruder. Also in today’s Horror Highlights: a trailer and release details for the John Bradley-starring film Traders, teaser videos and release information for The Dooms Chapel Horror, and the cover art and details for the first issue of Dark Horse’s Rise of the Black Flame comic book series.

Watch the Trailer for Intruder: “A young woman’s quiet night in becomes a free-fall into fear in this disturbing home invasion thriller. After she lands her dream job, a young cellist (Louise Linton) settles in for a relaxing few days holed up in her apartment but as a violent storm rages outside, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her every move. Cleverly toying with the rules of suspense, director Travis Z wrings maximum terror from everyone’s worst nightmare: you may not be alone.”

Written and directed by Travis Zariwny, Intruder stars Louise Linton, John Robinson, and Moby. The film will be released theatrically in New York and on VOD nationwide on June 24th courtesy of IFC Midnight.”


Traders Trailer, Poster, and Release Details: Press Release: “Desperate times call for desperate measures, but the scheme at the center of Traders may be the most desperate of all. The twist-filled suspense drama in which young men risk their lives to get ahead stars John Bradley (Samwell from Game of Thrones) and Killian Scott. Traders will be available on Digital Platforms and Cable VOD on July 11, 2016.

Jobs are gone. Homes are being repossessed. Suicide rates are soaring. But newly unemployed Vernon Stynes (John Bradley, Game of Thrones) might have the solution to the despair brought on by recession. He masterminds a diabolical, all-or-nothing plan he calls Trading. Through an underground online network of similarly displaced individuals, two people agree to “trade” by emptying their bank accounts, selling everything they own and putting the cash in nondescript green bags. They then travel to a remote location, dig a grave and fight to the death. Winner buries the loser and takes the two bags.

Then you find someone else and do it again, and again, and again, until you are rich enough or dead, whichever comes first. Like Vernon, Harry Fox (Killian Scott, Calvary, Love/Hate) has lost his job and his dignity. What else has he got to lose? Why not become a Trader? But when Trading becomes an alarmingly popular underground phenomenon, Vernon becomes a participant in the very game he created. Featuring an exciting young cast and sure to appeal to fans of such classics as Shallow Grave and Fight Club, Traders is a daring and troubling look at the depths to which ordinary people can be driven.

Rise of the Black Flame #1 (of 5) Release Details & Cover Art: “Press Release: “Milwaukie, Or— This September, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola,iZOMBIE co-creator Chris Roberson, Criminal Macabre and 30 Days of Night artist Christopher Mitten, award winning colorist Dave Stewart and cover artist Laurence Campbell will present Rise Of The Black Flame. This five issue miniseries from Dark Horse Comics will present a dark horror story about an ancient, evil power. In Rise Of The Black Flame, young girls are going missing from the cities of Siam, and the trail leads to the jungle hideout of a bloodthirsty cult– the Cult of the Black Flame.

“There have been several villains in Hellboy’s world who’ve been called the Black Flame, and the striking visual of a skeleton burning with dark flames is pretty hard to beat,” said co-writer Chris Roberson. “In Rise Of The Black Flame, we reveal that before there was a man called the Black Flame, there was an ancient cult hidden deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia known by that name. We plumb the depths of cruelty and ruthlessness that groups of people are capable of reaching, and explore how this cult which reaches back to prehistoric times is connected to the most dangerous villain in the history of the Hellboy books.”

“After all these years it’s still so exciting to find new corners (or in this case a giant shadowy, uncharted abyss of horror) of the Hellboy world left to explore,” said Mike Mignola.

In addition to Rise Of The Black Flame, Roberson and Mignola will be co-writing Hellboy & The Bprd: 1954 and Witchfinder: City Of The Dead. Rise Of The Black Flame will mark the Mignolaverse debut of artist Christopher Mitten.

“It is tremendous fun–and a little surreal–to be given the chance to dive into this fantastic universe,” said Christopher Mitten. “Mike and Chris (with whom I’ve long wanted to work) have concocted a fantastic story, and then there’s Dave Stewart…I mean, Knowing Dave would be coloring and then actually Seeing his artistry in action are two wholly different things. Getting a chance to dip my toe into this expansive world has made me want to dig in and explore more of it, to go off into little corners and find what strangeness, what beauty, lurks there.”

Rise Of The Black Flame #1 (of 5) goes on sale from Dark Horse Comics on September 7. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop!”

Any writer will tell you that Writers’ Block is The Worst because it could be considered a type of amnesia. There is nothing more defeating than sitting down in front of your word processor/writing pad/computer/wall of your padded cell and not finding the motivation or the desire to get to work. The ability to get over this obstacle all but takes a miracle for a writer to overcome be it through a creative muse, having a heck of a dream or an epiphany that suddenly puts it all into perspective.

Shooting begins on 'Natural Born Filmmaker'

Hollywood Skewers Itself in a Dark, Snarky Film About The Horrors of Filmmaking

Horror comes to Hollywood in more ways than one in Grunder Oakley Productions’ “National Born Filmmaker,” which has begun shooting this month. “National Born Filmmaker” focuses on the story of two filmmakers as their Hollywood dream that turns into a nightmare. Zombies included.

Described as both a cautionary tale as well as a spoof, "Natural Born Filmmaker" puts a searing magnifying glass on the workings of Hollywood as it reveals what happens when you mix naive producers, shady investors and carefully calculated contracts. And it does it all with a wry sense of self-awareness that hasn’t been captured since “The Bad and the Beautiful.” The resulting mix of horror and hilarity makes for a thrilling rollercoaster ride of raging hostilities, blazing guns and…did we mention zombies?

Some of the most terrifying and original horror movies which still resonate with fans today are entries in the slasher sub-genre from the 1970s and ’80s, which can be seen in the fact that they’re continuously being remade today. While several of these films, such as ‘Halloween’ and ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street,’ have influenced actor and producer Shaun Gerardo in his career, he’s hoping to prove that short films can be just as frightening.

Tell a Scary Joke to The Funny Man

Two guys walk into a bar... which is strange because you would think if the first guy walked into it, the second guy would have seen it! *rim shot* Wocka, wocka, wocka! Ah, to be a funny man. And that is the subject of the new web series presented by Daily Motion entitled, just that, The Funny Man. However, this dude is anything but funny and actually seems really difficult to get along with.

Dm was gracious enough to bring this web series to us just in time for Halloween, releasing one segment of the project each day from October 25 to November 3. The story (at least what I've seen so far) revolves around a deranged comedian with a real Norman Bates vibe. He wears a mask that makes him look like a walking Hot Pocket, but the bad intentions this guy exudes cannot be overstated.
