Spider One Moves Us into Apt. 13 | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
The commencement of the shopping season got you down? Well then get ready for a little holiday fear from the front man of Powerman 5000, Spider One (MTV's "Death Valley")! Time for a short film, with an equal balance of classic monsters and classic laughs! Dig it!
Created, written and directed by Spider One, Apt. 13 stars Adam Carr as Dracula, Kurt Sholler as the Frankenstein monster, Nick Kreiss as the Wolfman, Eric Price as the Mummy, and Leah Munson as the Girl. It takes a look at what happens when a bunch of golden age monsters end up in a "Golden Girls" type sitcom complete with canned laughter and leaky bladders!
Next to Attack the Block my fave 'must-see' movie of the year. It's that good! Out now, so gogogogogogo!
to a lesser extent...
which I have not yet seen but by all accounts stupid fun.
The Next Crop of Found-Footage Movies That Will Scare You Silly | Underwire | Wired.com
Now that Paranormal Activity 3 has broken box office records for October, Hollywood is green-lighting any thriller you can shake a handheld camera at.

Morarles to Helm Abortion-Themed "Horror" Film - ShockTillYouDrop.com
Um, yeah...don't worry, I will keep an eye on this one.The director of Humanimal, Francesc Morales, is embarking on a new endeavor called Apio Verde.
Screen Daily reports the film is a psychological thriller set in Chile that is about "a young woman waiting to give birth to a son with a terminal disease."
The story touches on therapeutic abortion (illegal in Chile) and, according to Morales, is said to start as a drama and end as a horror film. "The story is based on lives of many real people and it also shows how politics and religion get involved on a subject like this. Yet the movie is not a drama, but a thriller that states how this is not only an attempt to the human rights but also a situation that always leads to a violent resolution," Morales told SD.
His previous effort, Mumanimal featured actors dressed in animal costumes and told of a turtle vying for a cat's affections. So...yeah, we might get something interesting with Apio Verde.
Adam Green Talks Hatchet III and Holliston | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
There's some other good stuff here too, but this sounds groovy...
As for the series "Holliston," which posits Green and Lynch as two aspiring filmmakers who host a late-night cable access program titled "The Movie Crypt" (FEARnet is describing the series as "Wayne’s World meets Saw") Green said, “We just wrapped production, and last night in Austin, Texas, Joe [Lynch] and I did a charity event for disabled veterans where we showed some of Chillerama and then we showed the first ever footage from "Holliston", and I was very nervous because it’s a real sitcom and not one that makes fun of or is an homage to sitcoms, so I didn’t know what to expect of their reaction. You could tell during the first two minutes that the crowd was like, ‘Holy ****, this is so weird,’ and then they were so into it by the end. When we finished with the last clip, it was like an uproarious cheering applause, which was a great start to it. I hope the horror community gets behind it because it’s a risky thing for FEARnet to produce. It’s going to be their first show, and we aren’t doing what anyone expects. We are making a sitcom for our audience and our friends if they talked about the kind of stuff that we are into and if they randomly stabbed each other sometimes. Random acts of violence and the fact that [GWAR’s] Oderus Urungus is my character’s imaginary friend on the show? No other network would allow us to do that.”
