Official Artwork for Darkest Night Revealed!

Official artwork for Darkest Night from Brain Damage Films!


Darkest Night will be available on DVD July 16th, 2013 from Brain Damage Films.

About the Film

"Darkest Night" has its roots in horror styles and moods from many eastern and western traditions. Filmed in a "found video and documentary" style, "Darkest Night" depicts a family holiday reunion at an isolated home in the Sagada Mountains. The family's celebration is shattered by bizarre, supernatural and tragic terrors no one can explain. This film is a psychological horror story with intense family drama, suspense, action and shock.

Full Synopsis:

The film is presented as a part-documentary by a TV announcer, Danny Valencia, from "found videotape" he discovered at the site of a 2003 tragedy in the Philippine Sagada Mountains. There are a few interview scenes at the beginning, but most of the film is the main story. On December 25, 2003, an upscale Filipino family gathers at a remote place in the mountains, some distance from any town, for a Christmas Day reunion dinner. Their holiday is disrupted by a series of bizarre, supernatural, and deadly events. The group is cut off from civilization and plunged into darkness by forces that defy natural laws and shut down all modern technology. One by one, the family members die or disappear in weird and horrific ways. The few who are left, including the main character Susan, struggle for survival and against family conflicts, to find out what is happening to them and how to survive. Finally they discover to their own shock, who their true tormentor is, as well as how and why these terrible things are happening. Is it too late to keep the rest of them from dying? Is the fate that awaits them even worse than death or hell? Does a mystical book they find hold the key to controlling the dark forces that threaten to unleash ghosts and demons of an evil past? And finally, can they trust each other, or even themselves to contain the fears that threaten to destroy them? Suspense and mystery keep you unsettled and guessing till the very end, when the fate and outcome of all is finally revealed.

Banshee The Game


A multiplayer supernatural game where you can play as human or spirit. Scream. Run. Die.



With your help we will be the:

-First multiplayer immersive game on Facebook
-First true horror game on Facebook
-First feature film to be distributed through a social media game


First… the game!

Banshee is a multiplayer team-based game which you can play through Facebook. You choose which side you join. Team up with the human players to survive or with the ghosts to scare people to death.

Story - the two sides
You choose human. You’re a member of the emergency services and you’re on an endless night shift. You’re stuck out on a call, and you need to find your fellow humans to survive. 

You can only see as much as your torch allows you, but you can sense there are things out in the dark. Sometimes you can hear whispers. You feel the cold on the back of your neck. And then something SCREAMS.



You choose spirit.  You’re dead. And you’re not happy about it. You have a raging desire to terrify humans. However you don’t like their torchlight, they’re mobilizing into groups and building up arsenals of weapons to use against you, including resurrection. 

A Banshee screams out in the night and you know that a human is alone and vulnerable. You can band together with other spirits to terrify him, or go it alone. Either way, they will be SCARED TO DEATH.



Take a look at this early game demo…

"Cabin in the Woods" To Come Alive at Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 23


DARE TO UNLOCK THE SECRET BEHIND THE CABIN…

HORROR FILM FAN-FAVORITE “THE CABIN IN THE WOODS” COMES ALIVE AT UNIVERSAL ORLANDO’S HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS 23

Tickets on Sale Now for the Nation’s Best Halloween Event

ORLANDO, Fla. (June 27, 2013) – You and your friends thought this would be a relaxing weekend away at an isolated cabin. But you’re being watched. And manipulated. They are pulling strings to orchestrate a bloody sacrifice that dates back to the beginning of time.

You think you know this story. You think you’re in control. THINK AGAIN.

This fall, Universal Orlando Resort is unleashing hell by bringing to life LIONSGATE’s hit horror film, “The Cabin in the Woods,” at its award-winning, terrifyingly immersive Halloween Horror Nights event. Universal’s Entertainment team is partnering with LIONSGATE and film director and co-writer Drew Goddard to deliver a movie-quality haunted house experience that’s authentic to the film and places guests in the middle of an ancient fight for survival.

Additional details about this year’s event will be revealed soon, including more all-new, horrifying haunted houses.

Running select nights from Sept. 20 to Nov. 2, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights has a more than 20-year history of creating an incredibly entertaining, horrifying Halloween experience that is consistently rated the nation’s best. The event features highly-themed, disturbingly-real haunted houses that are based on everything from hit films like “The Cabin in the Woods” to worst nightmares -- and streets filled with hundreds of specially-trained “scareactors.” Tickets and vacation packages are on sale now and can be purchased at Halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando.

Available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download, “The Cabin in the Woods” was directed and co-written by famed filmmaker Drew Goddard and co-written and produced by sci-fi and horror icon Joss Whedon. The film follows five friends on a college getaway to a remote cabin, and their fate is sealed the moment they walk through the door. They are pawns in a ritual sacrifice that demands blood.

“This is a twisted dream come true for me,” said Goddard. “The Universal team has done an amazing job making all the terrifying aspects of ‘Cabin’ come to life, and horror fans will not be disappointed. Also, they said they’d let me dress up like a merman and scare people, so I’ll see you guys there.”

At Halloween Horror Nights 23, guests will step inside the menacing cabin from the movie and fend off a malicious family of zombies. Just like in the film, guests will flee from the cabin and enter a hidden facility where a secret operative is plotting their sacrificial demise. Suddenly, a menagerie of bloodthirsty monsters is released – and they’re in the middle of all-out chaos.

“‘The Cabin in the Woods’ took the horror film genre and turned it on its head, and it’s a perfect fit for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights,” said Michael Aiello of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment Team. “We’re collaborating with LIONSGATE and Drew Goddard to bring the iconic monsters from the film to our event. Guests will be assaulted by terrifying beasts taken right from the big screen – including the Hell Lord, the Dollfaces, the vicious Sugarplum Fairy, the Doctors and more.”

The Common Cold: A Zombie Chronicle


Following the New Year celebrations Daniel grudgingly commutes into London to start work in his company’s new offices. His stinking cold doesn’t help his mood any. From the moment he leaves the house, he begins to realise that something is terribly wrong with his fellow commuters, much more than just a hangover from the festivities. The other train passengers are seemingly oblivious to their surroundings: lethargic and lack-lustre, behaving just like zombies in fact. Little does Daniel know how right he is.

With Rob, his American friend and colleague, Daniel rapidly learns how to fight to escape his zombie co-workers and the two battle their way across London to rescue Daniel’s wife, Janet, who is trapped somewhat ridiculously in the local library.

On the way the lads pick up a couple of kids, orphaned after Rob accidentally shoots dead their father.

The motley crew make their way to Daniel and Janet’s house only to find it, along with most of the neighbourhood, blazing merrily. As they no longer have anything left to loose, Daniel and Janet make the brave decision to accompany Rob to America in the hope that things would be better on the other side of the Pond.

Finding Gatwick airport full of crazed infected, the group force their way onto an A380 waiting for take-off clearance to the USA. Little does our band of intrepid fighters know that the virus, or whatever it is, is already on board with terrible consequences.

Additional danger awaits as the plane approaches the US coastline, when the USAF attempt to prevent their entry with deadly force.
By some miracle, the A380 finally lands at Denver Airport, only to find, shockingly, that this has been nuked by the government as a last ditch attempt to contain the violence.

Meanwhile just south of Denver, Rob’s wife, Sandra, has been having her own problems with zombie crazed staff in her local supermarket, a zombiefied neighbour on her couch and a trigger happy bunch of national guardsmen ruining the wallpaper. Not to mention the crazed, murderous toddler in the bedroom.

Update on the upcoming film "Jebadiah's Axe"


Jebadiah’s Axe is the latest feature from Brainpie Media Productions and writer/director Jim DeVault is in post-production in Dallas. The film’s principle photography was completed on June 22, filmed on location in the town of Quinlan, Texas, and deep in 100 acres of woods around Lake Tawakoni.


“We brought together most of the production team we had on Blood Reunion, said DeVault, “then packed up and moved to Tawakoni for most of the production.” The team, including cast and crew, were housed in a building the team referred to as The Compound, The building is provided by Frank Ackenback and Caddo Productions, who also provided the locations where most of the film was shot.


The entire production was a tough one. On the first day at the compound, two extremely poisonous copperhead snakes had to be removed from the building, and during the entire shoot there were occasional encounters with scorpions, and constant assault by mosquitoes and chiggers. “We were lucky, though,” adds DeVault, “in that we didn’t have any close encounters with the aggressive wild pig that run wild out there, just an occasional armadillo.”



The teams 2013 feature, Blood Reunion, tackled the vampire genre. With this new production they take on zombie and slasher genres simultaneously, but not your typical mindless, brain-eating zombies. Jebadiah is an articulate, rational, calculating undead with a mission, and carrying out that mission results in some major carnage.


  “We upped the level of the violence in this one,” says DeVault, “and we used a lot of blood on set. Now it’s in post, and our editor and effects wizard, Wes Sutton, will complete the magic we started.”


In addition, Jebadiah’s Axe shares some cast members with Blood Reunion. Returning to the Brainpie fold are Gail Brewer, Tim Newkirk, Nicole Holt, and Greg Vestal. The cast also includes Latin hottie Deborah Funes and veteran screamer Debbie D.


The film’s premiere is slated for October in Dallas, just in time for Halloween, and the DVD will be released on DVD shortly after that.

New Midnight Syndicate "Monsters of Legend" CD coming July 19


Midnight Syndicate's new "Monsters of Legend" CD to be unleashed July 19th

June 20, 2013 (Cleveland, OH) - On July 19, Midnight Syndicate will release it's sixteenth studio album, "Monsters of Legend." This "tribute to the golden age of horror" will feature sweeping symphonic horror instrumental music and sound effects in the signature style the band pioneered. "We want to make you feel like you are a character in one of those classic horror films - that you've entered a world where any one of the iconic characters from the Universal Horror and Hammer Films could be right around the corner," said composer Edward Douglas.

The CD artwork features original images from classic Universal Studios horror movies including Frankenstein, Werewolf of London, and Dracula. "Listeners will hear the influence of the Universal Monster, Hammer, and Euro Horror films from the 30s through the 70s, not only in the music but in the images the songs conjure," added Gavin Goszka. Although the band promises the new disc will deliver the dark atmosphere haunted attractions, roleplaying gamers, and Halloween enthusiasts expect from them, they feel they've crafted a disc that transcends their favorite time of the year. "As we did on Carnival Arcane, we're always trying to take things up a notch both musically and with the sound design. There is a lot going on in this one. Plenty to pull you in, spark your imagination, and keep hold of you anytime you're looking to visit that mysterious place in your mind's eye."

The CD will be available for pre-order the first week in July. In addition to other new merchandise, Entity Productions Halloween Music will be releasing a special edition 12" vinyl version of the Monsters of Legend album, hand-numbered and limited to 250 copies.

Bleeker Hill


“I loved the story”

“It is a book worth reading”

“It is a well written easy to follow book, and damn disturbing in places. Its written as if it was a movie and you can picture things so freaking clearly you wish your imagination wasn't so good!”

“it was amazing!!!!!!”

“the ending ugh the ending!! Brilliant!”

So what is this story with the brilliant ending about…

“They are just stories, there’s nothing to be scared of in stories.”

Britain of the not-too-distant future is a country at war with itself. After years of anarchy and chaos, of bloodthirsty gangs and citywide destruction, The Party are now fighting to restore order through whatever means necessary – the fist, the bullet and even the terrifying practice of The Wash. It is a war between the lawless and their self-appointed judges, and neither side will relent until the other is destroyed.

After an attack on their headquarters, a small band of Party members flee across the country, seeking refuge in a safe house deep in the snowy forests around Bleeker Hill. But as they near their destination, it soon becomes clear that the enemy they are running from may not be the biggest threat they will face. Because Bleeker Hill is far from safe…and they are not alone.

As night closes in and the tensions within the group threaten to spiral out of control, each of them is soon forced to face a nightmare from which it might not be possible to escape.

Bleeker Hill has a dark history and many stories to tell, and it will be heard…

Bleeker Hill, the third novel by Russell Mardell, expands on the future world of chaos and anarchy first introduced in Stone Bleeding, and creates a terrifying, nightmare vision of the UK.

Blending a fast paced dystopian thriller, with tense, claustrophobic horror, Bleeker Hill will keep you in its grip until the very last of its dark secrets is revealed.
