#creepy found at hashtagcreepy.com is a website that curates scary videos online, from found-footage clips to short films year round. They’re attempting to post up every scary video you can ever find online.
This week they launched their first piece of original content entitled #CREEPY Halloween; a short film anthology wrapped in a 12-minute package. With stories about psychotic murderous families to a computer virus gone awry they strive to put a different spin on on horror.
The short films have all been produced independently by the creators of the site, who have credits working on films such as Insidious, The Pact and Sinister. The show format is up now and the short films will be released through out the week on the site as well for people who want to catch the shorts on their own.
Dark Sky Films will release The House at the End of Time on VOD and video November 11th.
Check out the first art and trailer, just released.
The top-grossing Venezuelan theatrical release of 2013, Alejandro Hidalgo’s debut feature was nominated for Best Film at Fantasporto 2014 and was an Official Selection at the 2014 Fantasia Film Festival.
“Thirty years ago, young mother Dulce (Ruddy Rodriguez, The Living Daylights) was accused of murdering her husband and two children in their home. Despite her pleas that a malevolent force in the house was responsible for the killings, Dulce was sentenced to the maximum penalty of imprisonment. Now, as part of her sentence, Dulce is sent back to her old home and the scene of the crime under house arrest, where she’s forced to confront the horrifying memory of what happened there. But this time around she’s determined to unravel the mystery that has haunted her so for long, and with the help of a local priest, give both her loved ones and her own spirits their much-needed peace. Filled with suspense from beginning to end, The House at the End of Time is a gripping thriller about the demons that follow us and the power we have to vanquish them.”
Image Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to the highly anticipated fantasy film Digging Up the Marrow.
Starring, written and directed by Adam Green (Froze, Hatchet, Hatchet II) and inspired by the artwork of artist Alex Pardee, the film stars Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, X-Men First Class), Will Barratt (Frozen), and a roster full of horror genre favorites and iconic artists all appearing as themselves.
“We’ve had a long, productive working relationship with Adam Green and we are extremely excited to continue to work with him on this film,” said Ward. “Adam brings an uncanny point-of-view to filmmaking and Digging Up the Marrow is one that fans of genre films will certainly rally around.”
When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package from a strange man (Ray Wise) claiming he can prove that monsters exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows deep down under the ground below our feet. Digging Up the Marrow is a documentary-style film that blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptics believing in the existence of monsters.
“Digging Up the Marrow is the result of an incredibly rewarding four-year creative collaboration,” said Green. “It’s a very unique film that doesn’t neatly fit into any specific sub-genre that has come before it. We’ve been thrilled by the overwhelmingly positive response that MARROW has received at early screenings.”
The monsters in the film are vividly brought to life by visionary American Artist and Trans-Media-Artistry Pioneer, Alex Pardee. Pardee has showcased his fine art in galleries around the world; acted as an art director for numerous bands (including ‘The Used’ and I’n Flames’); worked with film directors such as Quentin Tarantino and Edgar Wright on art-based-marketing campaigns; and provided extensive artwork for director Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. In 2007, Alex co-founded “ZEROFRIENDS,” an art and apparel company that he is currently the Creative Director of.
It’s nearly Halloween and the smell of fear and candy is in the air! But for those of us who are a bit more “mature”, our “candy” probably has an ABV percentage attached to it and we’re more interested in a fun party than in trick or treating. But if your party doesn’t have a sweet soundtrack to keep hearts racing, then ya done goofed!
Luckily, I’m here to help out with a few personal selections that I know I’ll be blasting on Halloween to get in the mood and I wanted to share them with all of you! So, head on in and enjoy the tunes!
Once you’re done, let me know what Halloween music you’ll be blasting this Friday!
I can’t think of a better way to kick off Halloween week than with a brand new trailer for the eerie, surrealistic, first person time-manipulating adventure game — that’s a mouthful — The Black Glove. This is the dreamy debut from developer Day for Night Games, a studio comprised of some of the folks that helped bring us BioShock and BioShock Infinite.
The Black Glove is currently on Kickstarter, where its developer hopes to raise $550,000 in order to help bring it to fruition. I hope it reaches that goal, because I want this game bad.
If you’re in need of a last minute Halloween mask, Day for Night Games also sent me this fantastic mask of the game’s boogeyman, the Space Minotaur.
Marvel has reportedly found their Doctor Strange for Scott Derrickson’s forthcoming film based on the sorcerer supreme, and the choice couldn’t be better. Deadline broke the story, which is still developing…
Cumberbatch is coming off a Oscar run from The Imitation Game, but has the personaility that he could likely champion the Robert Downey JR-less leg of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Scott Derrickson is directing Doctor Strange and Jon Spaihts is writing the script for the pic (the first draft was penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer). Doctor Strange was hatched by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko during that Marvel Comics heyday of the early 1960s. He’s a neurosurgeon who becomes Sorcerer Supreme, protecting Earth against magical and mystical threats with powers of sorcery, mysticism, and martial arts. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is producing.
More as it develops…
YouTuber Anthony Vincent is back with another edition of “Ten Second Songs”, a series where he takes a song and covers it in multiple styles, each getting ten or so seconds.
This time he’s taken the classic Michael Jackson track “Thriller” and covered it in the styles of Marilyn Manson, The Misfits, Spice Girls, Tom Waits, and more! As always, it’s highly entertaining and well worth a watch!
AOL site Mandatory just shared this awesome time-lapse video that shows the creation of A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger out of various meats. Yes, it’s a full edible Freddy Krueger.
The only thing this video is missing are the Epic Meal Time guys cookin’ him up and tearing him apart…
The Korean steak and beef jerky sound delicious!
Celebrities have been tweeting all morning* that they’re heading for shoots and auditions at the unknown location of the sadistic Merrick, a clown-esque psychopath who has been sending us ransom notes and threatening e-mails for weeks now. We bit, and are following his progress. This shit is too bizarre to ignore…
From what it looks like, the site has multiple cameras set up, with Merrick sharing is circus of terror live with us horror fans. This is an early Halloween treat! I’ve notice that Lexi Love is somehow involved, as is Adam Rifkin. Rifkin was just tied up by a bunch of clowns in a room that looks like it comes out of SAW.
Are they being set up? Will they die? I guess we’re going to find out soon enough. What other surprises await?
Watch or Die, make your choice.

Hush Money is George Coffey, Luke Jensen, Rivers Langley, Brodie Reed, Monika Scott, and Josh Wallace.
Jake Jarvi e-mailed me this morning about a Friday the 13th marathon that he caught on camera. Jarvi and 5 friends binged the entire F13 franchise and shared it through time-lapse.
“It took me just over 20 hours, but some friends and I watched and reviewed all 12 FRIDAY THE 13TH/Jason movies in one time-lapsed viewing session,” he explains.
“I’m just a big horror fan and I like watching people react to the kinds of movies I like. I thought I’d send this your way in case you and your audience feel the same. I think the horror genre is the only one where marathon time-lapse videos like this stay entertaining throughout. This is the third in our annual Halloween season NIGHTMARATHON videos. The last two were for NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and the HALLOWEEN series.”
Watch it below and click over for the aforementioned two.

This morning we told you about a future Alex Aja project, Wedding Gown. Now, Miramax is revealing the cast to his next genre outing.
Miramax, along with the film’s producers AntColony Films and Brightlight Pictures announced today the start of principal photography on the supernatural thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax starring Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall), Aaron Paul (Last House On the Left, Breaking Bad, Need for Speed, Triple Nine) and Sarah Gadon (Dracula Untold, The Amazing Spider-man 2).
“‘The 9th Life of Louis Drax’ begins on Louis Drax’s 9th birthday, when he miraculously survives a near fatal fall. His doctor Allan Pascal (Dornan) finds himself tangled between his professional responsibility and his growing affections for the boy’s mother (Gadon), a fragile young beauty. When Louis’ father (Paul) comes under suspicion, Pascal realizes other mysterious forces may be at work. With echoes of ‘The Sixth Sense’ and ‘Gone Girl,’ ‘The 9th Life of Louis Drax’ is a supernatural thriller filled with unexpected twists and turns.”
Joining Dornan, Paul and Gadon in supporting roles are Oliver Platt (X-Men: First Class, Chef, Frost/Nixon) playing Louis Drax’s psychologist, Dr. Perez; Molly Parker (House of Cards, The Road) as Detective Dalton; Barbara Hershey (Black Swan, Falling Down) who will play Violet, Louis’ grandmother; and Aiden Longworth (Hector and the Search for Happiness, A Christmas Story 2) in the title role of Louis Drax.

Producers are Tim Bricknell (Breaking and Entering, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency) and Minghella (The Two Faces of January) of AntColony Films, Shawn Williamson (The Interview, 50/50) of Brightlight Pictures and Aja. Rosanne Korenberg (Half Nelson, Hard Candy) is executive producer.
Horror-infused EDM artist Figure is currently on the road on his ‘Terrorvision’ tour, which melds live music performance with a visual backdrop of horror, shock, and obscure cinema. The tour is in support of his latest album, Monsters: Vol. 5, which you can purchase via iTunes.
The next stop on the tour is Peabody’s in Virginia Beach, VA and the tour culminates with a performance at the Republic Live in Austin, TX.
To celebrate this bevy of horror goodness, Figure put together a list of his Top 10 Non-CGI Horror Films!
This is as of this moment… A sort of top 10 of my favorite Non-CGI movies and characters. Not really a “best of” but what I think is awesome and entertaining. It’s so hard to just name ten but not only are these some of my faves most the movies are my go-to comfort movies.
On top of this list, Figure also put together a 30-minute mixtape that he dubs “Tunes For Terror (An Extravaganza Of Horror And Rock & Roll)”. Head on in for everything but be warned, this gets a little NSFW!
In Uk cinemas November 21, Metrodome released the hysterical opening 6 minutes from What We Do In the Shadows (read our review), a mockumentary/comedy written, directed by, and starring Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords, Men In Black 3) and Academy Award nominee Taika Waititi (Boy, Eagle vs. Shark).
The footage, played as a documentary, opens with Viago waking up in his coffin. He checks to make sure the sun isn’t out and then runs to wake up his vamp chums, one of which is hanging around, the other in the middle of an orgy.
“Diving deep into the throes of vampire life in New Zealand, What We Do In The Shadows introduces us to age-old vampire flatmates Vladislav (862 years old, played by Clement) Viago (379 years old, played by Waititi), Deacon (183 years old) and Petyr (8,000 years old). Stuck in their antiquated ways, they struggle to adjust to 21st century customs, like paying rent, sharing household chores and getting expressly invited into nightclubs. Enter 20-something hipster Nick, who Petyr turns to get an inside education on the modern world. What follows includes a whole lot of discovery: from fashion to technology and even a little feeling — all laced in continuous hilarity, of course.””
The film premiered at Sundance this year and is screening at the Toronto International Film Festival.
With All Hallows Eve less than a week away, this is the perfect time to get caught up on any horror games you haven’t finished before more get added to the list. 2014 has been an especially good year to be a fan of horror games, so it’d be understandable if you’ve missed a few. Heck, it’s my job to play horror games, and even I missed a couple games. We’ve reached a point where it’s genuinely difficult keeping up with the latest and greatest games in our favorite genre.
To make catching up a slightly less daunting task, I’ve come up with five games — released this year — that are fitting of the Halloween season. I hope you’ll let this list gently guide you toward creating the ultimate Halloween game playlist.
Five Nights at Freddy’s
What I enjoyed the most about Five Nights at Freddy’s, aside from its deeply unnerving premise, is how refreshing its design is. There isn’t another horror game that’s quite like it. It’s a life-saving buoy floating in a sea of first person horror games. Don’t get me wrong, I love games like Outlast and Amnesia, but it’s nice to see developers experimenting a bit in this genre.
Five Nights prays on an primitive fear of animatronic creations, which I assume most sane human beings are born with. The dead-eyed band of robotic woodland creatures that occupy the stage of any Chuck E. Cheese’s is something I learned to fear early on, and it’s a phobia this innovative indie game exploits brilliantly.
In related news, Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is happening.
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Los Angeles artist Poison Ivory to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Alchemy”! The video is a strange, disjointed journey with eerie images and haunting, beautiful costumes.
The artist, who blends rock, pop, punk, and hip-hop, is promoting The Filth EP (iTunes), which came out earlier this year.
Head below for the video and an exclusive quote!
While we were filming the first scene of “Alchemy”, we were in a forest and it was real late. Less then a 100 ft away we could hear a pack of coyotes howling so we took off running. I had laced up 6 inch heels on so I tried to take them off as fast as possible. I ended up running down a wet hill barefoot. I was with Zae Bear, the director, and Sebastion, the assistant director. We were terrified, although me and Zae were laughing as we ran because we were so terrified we were excited. Sebastion looked like he was gonna swing the camera equipment at anything, hahaha! I don’t blame him!
Another story is we were filming the ending scene at the beach and as Zae was filming me come out of the water with latex on my naked body I spotted a man with binoculars at the top of a cliff. He was watching me the whole time and as soon as I pointed at him he left. It was creepy, haha.
The mysterious “Killcast” is set to go live in just a few hours and I was just e-mailed by the killer clown, Merrick, that he plans on taking advantage of Adam Rifkin, the filmmaker behind Detroit Rock City and “Wadzilla,” Chillermama‘s awesome giant sperm short.
Rifkin had just tweeted the following, which was followed by the below letter from Merrick alerting me to his plans. I’m beginning Bloody Disgusting readers to stop Rifkin from walking into a trap!

Mixing in with our bag of Halloween Treats is a daily goodie set to release each day leading up until Halloween.
“Fun Size Horror” is a horror film collective that has come together to create 31 films to celebrate Halloween!
We kick things off first this morning with Anthony Lund’s short ‘Knock, Knock…’ that begins when he hears a loud knocking from inside his closet, a young boy finds the courage to investigate.
“On a dark, rainy night, Small-fry 8-year-old Aidan is up late reading stories about his favorite thing in the whole world: brave viking warriors. Suddenly, he hears a strange knocking…. from inside his closet. Channeling the Norse heroes he worships, Aidan armors himself with his prize helmet and sword, and approaches his unseen foe. Unfortunately for him, plastic weapons will do nothing against what’s hunting him from the darkness: a creature who can tunnel through the shadows.“
“Fun Size Horror” was created by Zeke Pinheiro and is being produced by Mali Elfman, Michael May and Curtis Andersen.
From filmmaker Greg A.Sager (Devil Seed), comes Kingdom Come, hitting DVD and Digital December 2 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
“A group of strangers wake up disoriented and soon find themselves being stalked by a supernatural force with sinister intentions. As they begin to question the coincidences that link their pasts, they soon realize that the decisions they make will seal their fates forever.”
Here’s the art and first still.
