CineMayhem Film Festival

Looking for something to do this weekend? How about attending the CineMayhem Film Festival March 2nd & 3rd at the Muvico Theater in Thousand Oaks, CA.? 

Celebrating the past, present & future of Independent Genre Filmmaking with the WORLD PREMIERE of ROADSIDE by Eric England and Special Screenings of THE ABC'S OF DEATH, K-11, RESOLUTION and BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE as well as many other great indie features and shorts by filmmakers across the globe.

They will be showing all of the aforementioned movies, along with these great movies…

Through a series of tragic events, a middle aged man grows to suspect the negative impulses plaguing his mind may not be his own

Set in the candy-colored world of 1950s suburbia, a reluctant young housewife suspects that the friendly neighborhood dentist is hiding a horrible secret, but is it just the anesthesia at work or is there something more sinister hiding below the surface? Open up and say AHHHHHHHH!

Alpha Gamma Theta are hosting a party for new pledges for the upcoming year. As the new pledges arrive, so does an uninvited guest. Little do the sisters know someone is watching them in the shadows. As the girls shower, study, eat and sleep the stalker studies the girls. One by one he finds the girls at their most vulnerable and murders them. The police hunt for the missing girls and their killer, but will they find them in time? Or will the girls be forced to fight for their lives

Ellen and James live alone in a silent maze of uniform houses populated only by spectral shrieking foxes. No neighbours means no business for Ellen’s photographic portrait studio. James commutes to and from work each day, leaving in the morning, returning at dusk.

Ellen spends her time photographing the foxes. The creatures seem to beckon. She follows them into a feral and twilight world. Ellen’s pastime becomes an obsession. An obsession that alienates James.
James confronts Ellen. She flees the house, vanishing into the endless rows of overgrown gardens. 

Night falls and she does not return. James’ search yields nothing. James is left alone in the silent maze. Weeks pass as he tries to cope with the isolation. Trying to get on with it. Trying to ignore the shrieking creatures that call from outside the house, beckoning.

Out of Stone

New horror book, OUT OF STONE by john g rees, tells the story of the sculptor of Evil and her adopted Aunt.

Ocean View, Hawaii – February 2013. Black Water Books announces the bloody initial release of john g rees’ new HORROR novel, Out of Stone, today.

 Out of Stone takes two characters from his earlier award-winning anoxic zone series and gives them headline roles. They fulfill them rather tremendously; bringing us into worlds we did not know existed, showing us horrors from theirs and other lives that immediately become our own.

 Sechra may have been a child when she was salvaged from the revolution, but not before witnessing the barbaric nature of the enemy. The nightmares she lived through could not be forgotten, nor the odium in her soul. She hid the execration behind sparkling eyes and a seemingly open nature. Just behind her eyes, however, lurked something entirely disturbing. Sechra’s subconscious found release through her artistic abilities. No one initially thought anything of her renderings other than they lent themselves to the macabre. The hideous subject matter was overlooked, as it seemed a cathartic for the young woman.

 What wasn’t seen, however, was the dark hand that guided her artwork, or the deep-seated hatred that gave strength to her arms and hands to create it. Not until it was too late, that is.

 Her aunt, Karuna Danesti, raised the young Sechra. Her love for the child kept her from seeing the darkness within the girl’s work. Let us say ‘love is blind’. But love is also unconditional. Karuna would do anything to save Sechra from a fate worse than death.


 Sechra’s journey takes her back into the Transylvanian Alps of her youth. The hardship of traveling by motorcycle deep into the mountains is nothing compared to what awaits her at the end of the road. Karuna flees Romania only to return to its distant past in an effort to salvage the future, Sechra, and herself.

 Evil is not something that wishes to be put away in the darkness, to be shuttered out of the light and out of sight, as we would like it to be. No, it wants to live among men and be the very bane of their existence.

 The epic, award winning anoxic zone series continues on with john g rees’ Out Of Stone. If you thought evil had been put to rest with his previous novels, think again.

HOUSTON, TX – A Kickstarter Crowdfunding campaign is now underway to raise a total of $14,000 to complete the Pre-Production and to secure investors for Sorrow; an independent film that’s best compared to the movie "The Devils Rejects" as the characters in Sorrow are similar also with a drama crime scene element.”

Filmed on location in Moab, Utah, 15 minutes of Sorrow have already been filmed. The producers are now seeking funds to cover filming for the remaining 76 minutes of the film. A Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign has been launched to raise a total of $14,000 to complete Pre-Production and to secure investors. No donation is too large or small contributors can donate any amount ranging from $1.00 to $5,000 or more. 

The contributors won’t walk away empty-handed when they support this independent film they’ll receive a special “thank you” a DVD of the film, even tickets to the film’s opening premiere, executive producer’s credit, and even a walk-on role in the film depending on their favorite perk ranging from $1.00 to $5,000.
