Tom Botchii’s debut feature film has released a featurette that dives into the characters of this slick and sick horror film.

Meet ‘Artik’.

The story centers around a family-run sunflower farm, where comic-book obsessed serial killer Artik (Jerry G. Angelo), his life partner Flin (Lauren Ashley Carter), and their family of foster kids are on the hunt for the ultimate comic-book hero. Until Holton (Chase Williamson), an Al-Anon attending straight edge, punk purist, comes between them.

While running inventory on the contents of my hall closet last week, I unearthed a veritable treasure trove of 90s nostalgia. Contained within a box with a L7 sticker affixed to it (riot girl, I was one!) were the following: butterfly hair clips, a vintage tube of Cherry Coke Lipsmacker Chapstick, a pair of those wide leg pants from Tripp (yes, the ones with the chains, don’t judge), fingerless gloves from Hot Topic (also, stop with the judging) and a dog-eared copy of R.L. Stine’s YA novel “Welcome to Dead House,” the first publication in the immensely popular Goosebumps series, of which I was a fan.

Skimming through the book (among others), I was reminded of my then-love of all things YA, and deciding to take a trip down memory lane, I spent a good part of the afternoon reconnecting with Stine’s work, as well as the other authors whose scary tomes filled that box (the only thing scarier may be that given the decade of their publication, they could arguably now be considered “historical fiction.” Would that then make Nirvana “classic rock?” I refuse to entertain that notion, or my own apparent encroaching mortality).

So sit back, grab a box of Dunkaroos and a can of Surge, and rekindle your love for the five scariest YA book series of the 1990s.

#1. Goosebumps

Published by Scholastic Publishing, the series launched in 1992 with Stine’s previously mentioned novel “Welcome to Dead House” in July of that year, and collectively has sold over 350 million books worldwide, in addition to the Fox television series and successful 2015 film feature spawned from the series’ name. Spin-offs would follow, as would many, many imitators. (Trivia! Did you know filmmaker Tim Burton was initially attached to produce a film version of Goosebumps in 1998, although as a satisfactory script failed to ever materialize, he focused his efforts on Sleepy Hollow instead).

#2. Point Horror

Another series published by Scholastic Inc., the Point Horror series, which commenced a year earlier than Goosebumps, contained works by varied authors, including Stine (his story “Blind Date,” released under the Point Horror banner, helped launch his career). My favorite however was author Christopher Pike’s story “Collect Call” which appeared in the Point Horror anthology book Thirteen: 13 Tales of Horror. Similar to horror heavyweight Stephen King in tone (as well as being pretty creepy), I can recall entirely relating to the story’s protagonist of Janice Adams, an atypical high school girl with a crush on the local, leather jacket-wearing bad boy which goes horribly wrong.

Don’t they always?

#3. Are You Afraid of the Dark

My entry into this series came not from the successful and long-running 1991 Nickelodeon television program of the same name (and from which it stemmed), but from the 1995 book “The Tale of the Sister Statues” by author John Peel. As in many of the young adult series, this one revolved around a duo of high schoolers (here, siblings Dustin and Brianne) who wind up conducting their own investigation into a potentially macabre event. Kinda’ an edgier version of your parents’ Nancy Drew, except for the pre-teen Smash Mouth crowd. Kinda’.

#4. Frightmares

Also from 1995 is Peg Kehret’s “Cat Burglar on the Prowl” which appears in Book 1 of the Frightmares series. Like Peel’s book, Kehret’s first entry in the eight book series revolves around similarly sleuthing teens and best friends Rosie Saunders and Kayo Benton, who launch an investigation into the theft of their feline Webster at a local cat show. Comprised of eight books in total, Frightmares often features storylines revolving around animals (Kehret’s a longtime advocate and volunteer for animal welfare, something I discovered while chatting with a YA expert in a Nick 90s club I belong to over at Gemr.) Because I’m a dork.

#5. Shivers

Lastly, prolific author M.D. Spenser got into the YA game with Shivers, a series of thirty-six horror novels for readers between the ages of eight and fourteen. Published between 1996 and 1998, this series skewed a bit too young for me at the time (full disclosure, the only book in the series which I read was “The Enchanted Attic,” which centered upon two young children and their suspicion of a malevolent force inhabiting the attic of an old home they’ve recently moved into). Still, with compilations called “Four Scares in One” being issued (which apparently featured four books in a single publication), as well as being republished this decade in eBook form on several major platforms, it’s probably high time for me to give Spenser’s scary series another look.

My children may like it.

But there’s no way I’m giving them those butterfly hair clips. Accidentally stepping on those things is scarier than any of these books, singularly or combined.

(June 25, 2018, New York, N.Y.) – On Friday the 13th of July, down-home horror aficionado Joe Bob Briggs is taking over Shudder, the leading premium streaming service for thriller, suspense and horror, with a 24-hour marathon of 13 cult classic movies. The programming event, THE LAST DRIVE-IN WITH JOE BOB BRIGGS, is available exclusively to Shudder members on July 13 beginning at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT.

THE LAST DRIVE IN WITH JOE BOB BRIGGS - 24 Hour Horror Movie Marathon! | Only on Shudder - YouTube

Characterized by an outrageous worldview and trademark “Drive-in Totals” lists, Joe Bob’s film critiques amassed a loyal fanbase through his long-running TV series Joe Bob's Drive-In Theater and, later, MonsterVision . For 14 years between the two shows, Joe Bob was the ultimate fan, a voice of authority with an unconventional, affable approach. Ahead of his time then, Joe Bob is now a legendary voice within the horror community, and THE LAST DRIVE-IN WITH JOE BOB BRIGGS reminds audiences of the host’s singular perspective on the genre.

THE LAST DRIVE-IN WITH JOE BOB BRIGGS is packed with 13 films curated to suit Joe Bob’s signature brand of color commentary. The following is a sneak peek of what’s in store for horror fans during Shudder’s exclusive programming event, with the rest of the line-up to be announced in the coming weeks:

 Tourist Trap (July 13) Five friends are hunted by a creepy killer after stopping to visit a
roadside museum in this slasher that counts Stephen King as one of its biggest fans.
After car trouble, the doomed group goes to visit an odd attraction filled with eerie
mannequins that seem to be alive. Tourist Trap is an off-kilter thriller that will have you
rethinking any stops on your next road trip.

 Sleepaway Camp (July 13) Angela Baker, a traumatized and very shy young girl, is sent
to summer camp with her cousin. Shortly after her arrival, campers and counselors
meet their ends in a series of grisly murders. This bloody “who done it” features a shock
ending that stands the test of time.

 Basket Case (July 14) In a tale of revenge with a demented twist, a young man and his
basket-bound, hideously deformed twin brother seek vengeance on the doctors who
separated them against their will.

“Joe Bob is a horror icon and raconteur whose signature wit and insightful commentary
entertained viewers for 14 years on TV,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder.

“We’re delighted to bring him back for this exclusive Shudder event where new fans can discover him, and old fans can rediscover him, as he takes on some of the greatest low-budget horror movies ever made.”

Shudder members will be encouraged join the conversation with Shudder’s Twitter account @Shudder during the marathon, which will include special guests, surprises, and prizes for participation.

Other initiatives centered around THE LAST DRIVE-IN WITH JOE BOB BRIGGS include an
upcoming Reddit AMA on July 10th, as well as screenings hosted by Joe Bob at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, NY on July 11 th and the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas, TX on July 12th.

Director John Fitzpatrick and his crew are back with another entry in their monthly ‘Scary Endings’ horror anthology series, this one titled “Party Crasher” (and if the true crimes of the recently apprehended Golden State Killer unnerve you, then this is sure to terrify).

Written and directed by Fitzpatrick and starring Ryan Dillon, Camilla Jackson, and Jai Koutrae, “Party Crasher” serves as Episode 16 of the ‘Scary Endings’ series, as well as (sadly) the series finale.

Produced by director Fitzpatrick (along with Sarah Fitzpatrick, Jessica Chandler, Ryan Dillon, Brian Chandler, and Adam J. Yeend), the filmmaker told us of the short, which had been filmed in 2017 and only now released, “Inspiration did come a little bit from the crimes of (Golden State Killer) Joseph DeAngelo. I don’t recall exactly how, because we filmed this almost a year ago and long before he was caught, but somehow that little tidbit about the dinner plates got discussed in the news, and we sort of just used that as a springboard. What we were really wanting to do was more of a Poe homage, with the (SPOILER) black cat, and to explore the idea of consequences. Our particular spin was that we took the consequences of a broken promise, and sort of visually depicted it. It’s kinda’ artsy but we thought it would be fun.”

The filmmaker continued of the well-received web series, which has over the course of its two season run put a spotlight on everything from killer clowns to werewolves and most everything in between, It feels good to complete the final episode, but there are mixed emotions about finishing it.  We had a really awesome run, but as you can imagine over that period of time, a lot of changes in our real lives led to time becoming scarce, so Scary Endings needed to come to a close.  There has definitely been a sense of being lost over the last few months (because) for so long we all came together and created every weekend, and now there is really a big hole emotionally where Scary Endings once was.”

“What I can say is that over that time we all grew in so many ways: as storytellers, as filmmakers and most importantly as friends,” concluded Fitzpatrick, who in addition to ‘Scary Endings’ wrote and directed the award winning shorts “Skypemare” and “Brentwood Strangler”, and now we have a really large family out there in the horror community that we have fell even more in love with. This is not, however, ‘Goodbye.’ We do want to create again, and we will still make horror shorts, but just a little less frequently, and probably more stand-alone verses being part of a series.”

Be sure to subscribe to the “Scary Endings” YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/whereistherockhammer for additional episodes, follow them on Twitter @scaryendings for updates and check out their official site at www.scarendings.com .

Synopsis:

Ben wakes to find himself covered in dishware and a masked intruder looming above him; it’s simple – if he moves and drops a plate, his wife Beth will die. Frozen and unable to move, Ben has no choice but to keep still, or does he? As the intruder reveals himself to Beth in the other room, it turns out this intruder’s choice in victim is anything but random.

The Rise Of The Harvester is coming back for more!

Horror Equity Fund Inc. (HEF) is excited to announce they will be bringing the acclaimed graphic novel series ‘The Rise of the Harvester’ by Steve McGinnis to the screen and beyond!

HEF CEO Marlon Schulman believes that the series has great franchise potential, and will be a “great ride for horror fans” throughout the world. HEF CCO and screenwriter Brian Herskowitz has penned “The Harvester” screenplay which artfully deepens and expands the series.

McGinnis started illustrating at a young age where signs of his horror potential showed up even then. In the spring of 2012 Steve was commissioned to paint some images and posters for the Niagara Falls Comic-Con to honor the 1974 cast of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The resulting TCM print was much beloved by the cast and crew and led to Steve being asked to do the same for Night of the Living Dead. His horror illustrations and designs have since been featured in Diabolique, Fangoria, Gorezone , HorrorRama, Screams Quarterly and Gore Noir. His art has graced the covers of numerous top-tier genre magazines.

The masterfully illustrated graphic novels – Rise of The Harvester: Book One and Rise of The Harvester: Con of the Dead were released by SST to critical acclaim and are currently available on Amazon.com.

Click to view slideshow.

“Turning graphic novels from print art to a proper screenplay that flows can be tricky, but they did it seamlessly with respect to the original story. I am very pleased and excited to be collaborating with Horror Equity Fund on The Harvester Franchise. I foresee a very successful partnership between us while creating a new Slasher icon.” Steve McGinnis.

“Steve’s artwork is known throughout the Horror community and we are thrilled to be working with him. The Harvester is poised to set a new standard for cinematic mayhem and destined to become a Horror Classic.” HEF Team.

HEF’s mission is to establish the company as the premier destination for investors, fans, and content creators to join forces in making profitable horror properties in film, TV, gaming, live events and publishing.

Steve McGinnis also did the illustrations for Tom Holland’s FRIGHT NIGHT Coloring book
