Exploring our darkest, most primordial fears, “Abandoned in the Dark” combines compelling characters and relentless tension. This anthology film packs a wallop without relying on clichés, familiar plots, or predictable endings. The grim tone and unwavering intensity of each story will have audiences transfixed — yet they’ll be afraid to turn away, afraid of missing how the four unique stories converge into a seamless, mesmerizing, unforgettable whole. A reimagining of the horror genre is long overdue. “Abandoned in the Dark” will be the new vision, the next prototype.

Tales of Blood and Sulphur is a compelling collection of dark fiction, focused on desire, betrayal, survival, and greed with some demons and zombies thrown in.

The seven short stories follow a gambler so desperate to escape from his demons that he takes refuge on an isolated island, a corrupt Pastor selling lives and body parts for his own gain, a writer ho attracts some help from beyond and a desperate man trying to survive the Zombie Apocalypse. Laced with dark themes, grim humor and pop culture references, J.G’s style pays homage to his heroes Stephen King and Clive Barker whilst speaking in a voice uniquely his own. The 40 year old Rothwell resident is not one for resting on his laurels, however. He is currently starting work on his second collection, A Carnival of Monsters and also his debut novel, H.A.D.E.S

Special Screening of "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter"

Popcorn Nights & O Cinema are proud to present the 30th anniversary of the not quite final, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.


Ahhh, 80’s horror.  Freddy Krueger , Pinhead, Leatherface, Michael Myers,  and of course Jason Voorhees.  Sure, two of those guys first popped up in the 70’s but it was the 80’s where these characters became horror icons.  The ‘Friday the 13th” series released more sequels in the 80′s than any other franchise and with the exception of a couple installments, Jason managed to keep things fun over the years. The fourth Chapter in the series “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter” is now celebrating its’ 30th anniversary and it is one of my personal favorite Jason films.  Not only does it star a young Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover, but it also is the start of the Tommy Jarvis (Feldman) storyline which continued on in Parts V & VI.  Come see the movie that the late film critic Roger Ebert called “an immoral and reprehensible piece of trash” and enjoy it with me.  I can’t wait to show a Friday the 13th movie on FRIDAY THE 13TH!!!!


Seating is limited, so get your tickets South Florida Horror Fans:

Michael Bartlett's Treehouse Sets its Sights on Cannes and the Film's Official Trailer is Revealed!


Treehouse
“No Kids Allowed!”

Director Michael Bartlett is proud to release the teaser trailer for the suspense thriller Treehouse. This exciting tale, set in the backwoods of Missouri, has opened for international sales this week at the most prestigious film festival in the world, Cannes. Here, the film will screen for buyers. But, editors and journalists can preview the film’s future release, right here!

Bartlett’s film has been adapted to screen from writers Alex Child and Miles Harrington’s original script. The film begins when Elizabeth (Dana Melanie) arrives home from school to witness the abduction of her younger brother. She gives chase and is not seen again. Soon, news breaks to the local community, coinciding with sightings of strange humanoids and animal abductions and mutilations. The town descends into paranoia and a curfew is enforced.  Brothers Killian (J. Michael Trautmann) and Crawford (Daniel Fredrick) stumble upon Elizabeth by chance when sneaking out to party with some local girls and that is when all proverbial hell breaks loose! A confrontation looms between these youths and their hunters.

Treehouse is described by Bartlett as a “siege film…in the same vein as John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 (1976).” The refuge in the film is an elaborate treehouse, set fifty feet in the forest’s canopy. This set was developed with folding partitions, which allowed cameras to film the action, from multiple angles and levels. As well, Bartlett says of the film: “suspense is built and fear is amplified by what is not seen, or only alluded to.” Viewers of the trailer can gather clues as to the film’s true villain. The rest is left up to your imagination.  Finally, Bartlett hired his crew from the The Signal (2007) and Winter’s Bone(2010) productions, to realize his vision.

Synopsis: The story for Treehouse focuses on missing teenagers and unknown shadows in the localMissouri woods. A brother and sister are kidnapped and two brothers find one of the victims, Elizabeth.Elizabeth is alone and afraid, in an isolated fort; several shadows lurk below. All three classmates will have to face an unimaginable evil, if they are to survive the night.

Release Date: TBA.

Director: Michael Bartlett.

Writers: Alex Child and Miles Harrington.

Cast: J. Michael Trautmann, Dana Melanie and Clint James.

Gas Station Horror


Hosts J. W. Crump and Jordan Hirsch join a group of talented horror-philes to liven up the boring parts of scary B-movies.

Using real horror films purchased in local gas stations and bodegas, the hosts select specific clips to play for 30 seconds, pause, and then ask the improvisers to finish the scene.



Every show features a DVD raffle, movie trivia, fresh clips, and a group of talented performers from UCB, PIT, and the Magnet.

Most shows take place at the Peoples Improv Theater (NY). Check out the Upcoming Shows section to find out when the next Gas Station Horror is premiering.



"Gas Station Horror was hilarious! Besides some free candy and cool horror movie trivia before-hand, the improvisers were incredible. I literally thought I was going to pee in my pants; awesome show, can’t wait to go back and see it again!”

"I love this show. It combines the schlocky acting and student-film grade production of B-movie horror flicks with sharp, witty improv. And they hold raffles throughout the show. You have to love that.”

Award-Winning H.P. Lovecraft Bust Sculptor to Place Edgar Allan Poe Bust in Historic Boston Public Library


Boston, Massachusetts (May 15, 2014) — Having just won a Rondo Award—given in celebration of the best in classic horror research, creativity and film preservation—for Best Fan Event for his 2013 H.P. Lovecraft Bronze Bust Project, sculptor Bryan Moore is now tackling Boston and its wayward son, Edgar Allan Poe, at the nation’s oldest public library, the Boston Public Library.

"I've always been a fan of both Lovecraft AND Poe as American authors who were truly emblematic of the horror genre," Moore asserts. "It seemed almost criminal to me that there weren't more tributes to them in the form of sculpture."

Since the Lovecraft bust fundraiser (via Kickstarter) was such a phenomenal success, many asked what was next for Moore—a series of author busts seemed to be a natural progression for the artist, and Moore reasoned that Poe is the undisputed king when it comes to lasting works of horror fiction.

Originally slated as a companion piece to the Lovecraft bust in Providence, plans changed when an opportunity materialized at the historic Boston Public Library which houses many busts of legendary authors in its hallowed halls.

Moore elaborates: "While Poe has certainly been the subject of sculptors the world over, I couldn't figure out why he was in museums and not libraries, where first time readers might be exposed to his macabre works for the first time."



The unveiling is slated for the evening of October 30, 2014 in the Boston Public Library’s breathtaking Abbey Room.

Rumor has it that October is to be declared "Poe Month" by the Mayor of Boston Marty Walsh—in addition to the Poe bust, Boston also has the honor of unveiling sculptor Steff Rocknak's dynamic Poe statue, "Poe Returning to Boston." The statue will be installed at the site of Poe’s birth, complete with ravens and pages ushering forth from his suitcase.

"While I was fully aware of Steff's beautiful sculpture, the Boston Public Library had given me the unveiling date commitment before I knew of the yet-to-be-announced statue unveiling of Steff's sculpture. I made sure to support that project with a personal donation and to extend the olive branch, so to speak, to make sure that I wasn't like a rogue paperboy selling papers on her corner! Steff has been great to me and I look forward to attending her unveiling on October 5, 2014,” Moore says.

The Edgar Allan Poe Bronze Bust Kickstarter fundraiser will be launched in the first week of June; more news to come.
