one_last_dive

With only 20 minutes left, to investigate an underwater crime scene, a diver goes for one last dive.

Written and directed by Jason Eisener.

Starring Catherine Maltaise, Peter Allen.

One minute and eight seconds.

I kept it super short this week. At just over a minute, One Last Dive from Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener is as creepy as it gets. Enjoy.

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: DEAD STORY

Synopsis: A young married couple who, after purchasing their first home, realize that either the house is selectively haunting only the wife, or she’s developing a delusional psychosis.

Okay, this one doesn’t look half bad; I’m always up for a haunting tale. Writer-director Suneel Tripuraneni makes his debut with Dead Story, starring Kelsey Deanne and Chase Austin. Check out the trailer, poster and official Facebook page and look for Dead Story on January 20 on VOD.

A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: THE CONJURING 2

tc2

The Crooked Man demon, shown in the movie, is not CGI or animated. It’s played by the very real Javier Botet who creates amazing movements with his body, like a living stop-motion puppet as stated by James Wan. Botet is often recruited to play various demons in horror films due to this ability, including the titular demon in Mama (2013) and the Leper in It (2017).

SHORT FILM SATURDAY: STRANGE THING (2014)

strangething

A newly married couple wake up to find a door has appeared in their living room tempting them to open it and discover the mystery inside.

Written, produced, edited and directed by Alrik Bursell.

Starring Hali Lula Johnson and David O’Donnell.

Filmed in the United States.

Nine minutes and fifty seconds.

Strange Thing has been compared to Netflix’ Stranger Things in it’s use of ’80’s themes and portals. Since I enjoyed the former I look forward to seeing the latter for the first time (don’t judge me; I still need to watch Blade Runner, too). Jack-of-all-trades guy Alrik Bursell has crafted a neat short horror film with this one and Hali Lula Johnson and David O’Donnell show great chemistry as a befuddled husband and wife. Enjoy.

 

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: BEHIND THE WALLS

SynopsisYears it has waited, now someone’s moved in. Through the eyes of the evil within we witness a broken family desperately seeking a new beginning, in a new home, but this house lives, watches and wants them to stay-FOREVER.

A haunted house horror film seen in the perspective of the house.

Behind the Walls stars Vanessa Angel, Hutch Dano, Reggie Lee, Lew Temple, Joe Hursley, Mason Mahay, Taylor Autumn Bertman, Jayne Taini, Tim Soergel, Tim Curcio, Joseph Gilbert and Bailey Spry. It is written and directed by James and Jon Kondelik. So far there is no word on a release date.

I’m intrigued. Check out the trailer and poster ↓ and let me know what you think.

 

A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: THE CONJURING

theconjuring_blog_01

Eight generations of families lived and died in the house before the Perrons moved in. Andrea Perron suggested that some of the spirits from the families never left. Deaths included two documented suicides, a poisoning death, the rape and murder of an 11-year old girl, two drownings, and the passing of four men who froze to death. Most deaths occurred within the Arnold family, from which Bathsheba Sherman was descended.
