Burbank, CA – A new interactive horror series is coming soon. “Nightmares” – An in-depth nightmare re-enactment series has launched on Kickstarter. Nightmares are one of the very few experiences that connects every living person on the planet. The series dives deep into the minds of people that have suffered from terrible nightmares and then, in a brand new format, various medical and mental health professionals attempt to explain the cause of these terrible experiences, segment by segment. If the medical professionals are stumped, paranormal investigators step in.

Nightmares is hosted by Kevin Grevioux (Underworld, IFrankenstein) while Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Pumkinhead, Terminator, etc.) introduces each episode. With a number of high profile horror talent attached, each segment will feature a notable contributor to the horror industry, appearing in re-enactments, hosting, and offering unique and masterful insight. Only way to find out who hosts what… is to watch…

The nightmares are re-enacted in true short horror film fashion, focusing on the creature or monster. Each episode is a full Nightmare that plays out similar to Tales from the Crypt or Tales from the Darkside with emphasis on bringing the audience new, original monsters. The show wraps up with over two dozen medical professionals and masters of their field, including but not limited to: Psychologists, Paranormal Researchers and Analysts, Psychics, sleep and dream research centers and their team of leading dream experts in North America, Reiki Masters and energy workers, Theologists, Historians, and Neurologists, Fear Enthusiasts, Therapists, and Biologists to chime in and develop theories to the explanations of the nightmare in an attempt to help the dreamer, or in our case… “The Victim”

But it gets better. When living in the world of Nightmares, medical experts may not be able to pinpoint the obvious source of the nightmare. If this happens, Nightmares has partnered with Hollywood Ghost Hunters, led by Kane Hodder (Jason VoorheesI, in Friday the 13th part VII, VIII, Jason Goes To Hell, etc), who will conduct a paranormal investigation in the area where the nightmare occurred, searching for answers.
The first Nightmare comes from a man that started having nightmares after working for Clive Barker’s Seraphim Films. Kane Hodder and his team performed a paranormal investigation… in Clive Barker’s house. A true life, character crosses over with a thick vat of paranormal dumped on it; Jason visits the happenings at the Hellraiser house. A hair-raising episode with some of the greatest horror icons immersed in the passion of the genre.

Speaking of Clive Barker, his art work serves as a backdrop for the series in season one. Nightmares has partnered with Century Guild and each episode will feature different pieces of artwork from the mind of a master of horror himself. The artistic back drop is expected to change from season to season.

The show’s creator and Executive Producer Jin Kelley said “In all the horror films I’ve seen and admired, it always came down to the monster, whatever it may be. If the monster wasn’t believable, then it pulls the viewer out of the story you’ve spent so much time building. You have to respect the fans and give them the best you possibly can. I believe the best way to keep that necessary fear factor intact is with creative practical effects.”

Attached to the show are a number of artists featured on highly popular SyFy show Face Off. Fan favorites and champions Rayce Bird, Logan Long, Cig Neutron, Drew Talbot, Keaghlan Ashley, Rashaad Santiago, Cat Paschen, Niko Gonzalez, George Schminky, Julian Bonfiglio, Wayne Anderson, Gage Munster, Jaime Leodones, Stevie Calabrese, George Troester, and J Anthony Kosar just to name a few. These SFX all-stars compile some of the incredibly talented artists that have come together to make monsters for Nightmares. This Dream Team of artists will rotate so the audience gets to see all of these champions build the monsters in an accompanying webseries available on the Nightmares website. Nightmares picked up Director of Photography David M. Brewer, who chilled audiences of Insidious and countless other horror films.

The show Nightmares is very interactive, appealing to a global audience. Viewers can submit their own personal nightmare and the show may elect to bring that nightmare to life, prompting our tag line:

“It’s Time To Face Your Demons…”

Each episode will produce new, original monsters. The audience are able to choose which one they want to see in a feature film… as well as which actors… even locations. The Nightmares Team have listened to their fellow the horror fans and are prepared to influence the shape and direction of interactive horror in the entertainment, and its audience forever.

“Nightmares connect every person on the planet. It’s not bound by languages, or ethnicity, or anything else. I also wanted to create something that the fans could actually get involved with on the development level. They can interact with the film making process. I got pretty tired of getting excited over a project that I grew up watching, only to see that the people that finally made it into a movie dropped the ball and disappointed millions of fans in the process. I say give the fans what they want. In order to do that you need a platform for them to easily communicate with you” – creator Jin Kelley 

While the series itself has yet to look for a network to call home, they have already begun shooting various segments to drum up some buzz. So far Lisa Wilcox (Nightmare on Elm Street 4 & 5, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Chloe Dykstra (Heroes of Cosplay), Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak), Philip Friedman (Insidious), Nicholas King (Sinister), Douglas Tait (Freddy vs Jason, Teen Wolf) have been seen on the Nightmares set as well as a few endorsements from other soon to be announced horror icons.

A show like this has never been done before. It’s a show that is powered by fans, hosted by icons, explained by science, with monsters made by champions, all while keeping the fans actively engaged. And in true independent fashion, they have launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance the pilot episode of the series which can be viewed here. http://kck.st/1kA1obc

Darkness

Feeling like the earth swallowed me whole darkness overcome me.
Taken deep into my memories to see the shadows behind me,
No light comes, no air to fill my lungs, holding on to life,
Choking, choking, can’t last much longer.
The darkness fills my being and wins the struggle we had.
My soul taken down to hell and there’s no coming back.

‘Untitled Horror Film’ – Review.

unnamed

So I’m a big fan of horror and love all kinds so when I was asked to review this film movie of course I said yes.

Synopsis.

So what is untitled Horror Film (UHF)…Heidi Slater- A digital suicide note or a twisted manifesto video?

Untitled Horror film is a UK based movie and was shot in just 5 days.

Heidi Slater (Margot Mount) plays a woman determined to get her big break in journalism, as she attempts to try and prove that Tobiaz Danzig (psychic-medium) is a fake. When Tobiaz Danzig (Tom Charnock)leads Heidi and her crew into ‘Netherwood House’ Heidi and her team start to suffer from visual hallucinations.

Heidi starts wondering what’s really going on, ‘The Director’ wants to make something completely different and as fiction becomes blurred with actual events, Heidi succumbs to his hypnotic film making process.

As a viewer and a lover of anything Horror I found the beginning to be a bit chaotic when switching the camera between characters, leaving me slightly disorientated to where the story was going. I found it most interesting to watch how ‘The Director’ J.P used psychological methods to change Heidi’s mind set into carrying out the murder of Jeffery (Darren Harris).

Was Heidi really hypnotised or did she succumb to human nature of survival after reading the ‘rape scene’?

In my opinion ‘Untitled Horror Film’ was a great watch and successfully written, but ideally I would have liked to have seen Heidi do more murders under the influence of J.P. All in all Jean-Paul Bankes-Mercer has done a great job with this movie and I look forward to more of his work.

Director Statement:
Heidi Slater was a very difficult film to make; the production process took about three years. The edit was a nightmare and consisted of numerous final edits, re-shoots until finally, the subject matter (being so oppressive and dark) got a hold of me
*. I took time away from ‘The Film’ and worked for the BBC as a Unit Manager (change of scene but just as stressful and brilliant) only to return, re-think and re-edit…again.
