I believe this may be the first time that a Power Ranger has been a Scream Queen of the Month. Miss Vincent was Maya the Yellow Galaxy Ranger in several episodes and incarnations of the TV series.
Born February 7, 1979 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Cerina’s contributions to the horror genre began in 2000 with Fear Runs Silent. In 2002 she starred in Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever. 2004 found her in Murder-Set-Pieces and 2005 found her in both Intermedio and It Waits. She was up on Sasquatch Mountain in 2006 and in 2008 she was Toxic (or at least that was the title of the movie). She starred in the comedy-horror series Zombie Family for the “Death of a Salesman” episode and in the The Walking Dead: Webisodes “Cold Storage: Parting Shots” in 2012. She appeared in the short film Skypemare in 2013 and finally in the “Bad Seed” segment of Tales of Halloween in 2015.
Let us welcome our September, 2016 Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month: Cerina Vincent!
A horror film about three friends who drive to a haunted field in search of a girl who’s mysteriously disappeared.
Written and directed by Jimmy Ren.
Starring James Waller, Bethany Yim, Oliver Wang, Nani Pacal, and Claire Chen.
Filmed in Dixon, California.
14 minutes and 5 seconds.
From the YouTube page for Stranded: “Based on our favorite Japanese horror movies like “The Ring” and “The Grudge“, this is Glass Pixel Studio’s first attempt at a horror movie. Filmed in 2009 in Dixon, California on a shoe-string budget — please forgive the bad dialogue and the corny special effects.”
Why did I choose Stranded for this weeks Short Film Saturday? Because it’s a first attempt at a horror film and despite being made on an (admittedly) shoestring budget I believe it is an excellent effort. It’s not perfect; it is an example of making the best of the money you have to work with and putting out a film you can be proud of. The filmmakers behind Stranded have every reason to be proud and I for one hope to see more from them. Check it out ↓.
Synopsis: A new chapter in the beloved RING horror franchise. A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before…
This weeks Friday Night at the Trailer Park is a combination of “I couldn’t find any other decent trailer to present” and “Everyone else is doing it so why not me?”. Rings looks more like a reboot than a sequel but at least it looks better than The Ring Two. Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez from a screenplay from Jacob Aaron Estes, Akiva Goldsman and David Loucka from the novel by Kôji Suzuki, Rings stars Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Aimee Teegarden, Bonnie Morgan, and Vincent D’Onofrio. Look for it in theaters on October 28, 2016. Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer and poster ↓.
Lest I forget you can like Rings on Facebook and check out the official website, also.
The architecture flaw of the medicine chests and people being able to sneak in, is something that (director) Bernard Rose discovered in his research for the film and there was actually a series of murders that were committed this way.
Another week of posters and one more week until August is done! I’m listening to Alice Cooper’s “Billion Dollar Babies” as I prep this new set for all of you. I don’t know why I told you that, but enjoy!

Here’s a story that I am sure that everyone has heard at one time or another and in one way or another. In other words it is an urban legend. This isn’t ground-breaking horror but merely another version of a creepy tale and one told effectively at that. Enjoy.
Synopsis: When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – led by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly humanity.
I always thought that Deep Impact was the smarter person’s version of Armageddon; judging from the trailer it appears that Arrival may be the intelligent answer to Independence Day. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario) and starring Amy Adams, Forrest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner and written by Eric Heisserer from a short story by Ted Chiang, Arrival arrives in theaters on November 11, 2016. Check out the international trailer and a poster ↓.
