Press Release: The Campus

Jason Horton’s The Campus on VOD (Amazon Instant)

“The Devil Will Take Your Soul…One Piece At a Time.”

Los Angeles, California : Director Jason Horton’s (Monsters in the Woods) The Campus will be releasing through Video-on-demand this week. This indie horror film puts Morgan (Rachel Amanda Bryant) in a demonic limbo, after her father makes a deal with the Devil. Robert C. Pullman (“Fragmented”), Brit Sheridan (“Supernatural”) and Scott Menville also star in this Gas Money Pictures’ production. And, The Campus will be available, through a wide online release, this February 1st!

The Campus brings several stories together in a larger narrative. Horton says of the story and its genre: “with The Campus I set out to put a unique spin on a familiar premise, by combining several horror subgenres into a single coherent story. I used the Groundhog Day’s (1993) framework to combine different types of horror, while telling a very human story.” Horror fans can see this thrilling horror title, through VOD this week. The Campus debuts on Amazon Instant, on February 1st. And, this is one horror title not to be missed.

The official synopsis: Robert dies after breaking his deal with the Devil, bringing his daughter home for the funeral. Morgan arrives with the intent of ripping off the family business but soon finds herself in a never-ending cycle of terror; being brutally murdered then resurrected over and over again – each time losing another piece of her soul.

Returning to the Proscenium Theater at the Drake in Center City, Philadelphia, PUFF3 will run from Thursday, September 6, to Sunday, September 9, featuring four full days of strange, sordid, and spectacular offerings from international and regional independent filmmakers. In addition to their feature and short film categories, the Third Annual Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival will also be debuting a brand new micro-shorts category that will shine a spotlight on short-form unique and experimental films from emerging digital platforms.

The brainchild of genre film aficionados Madeleine Koestner and Alex Gardner, the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival has become the underground sensation of the Philly indie film scene. With a weekly horror screening series and burgeoning spin-offs, 2018 aims to be the biggest and boldest year yet for the festival, which has previously featured such notable films as Tragedy Girls, We Go On, Imitation Girl, and Karate Kill. Additionally, PUFF touts an excellent success rate for their selections, with almost all feature films from the first two years of the festival receiving independent distribution.

In addition to the newly announced dates, PUFF3 has also opened early submissions for filmmakers to enter their micro-short, short, and feature length productions into the fest, with special low-rate entry fees for submissions between February 1 and February 28. Submissions will commence under standard rates March 1 to June 15, followed by the late submission period from June 16 to July 15.

All films playing in competition at PUFF3 will be eligible for three different awards, each of which will be represented by a tiara in PUFF tradition: the Best Feature Award, Best Short Award, and Jury Award. Furthermore, PUFF3 will also crown a new figure in the independent genre scene with their Legacy Award.

Prior to PUFF3, the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival will continue to collaborate with Philly’s South Street Cinema on their weekly screening series. Curated by Gardner, these screenings have built much buzz among the city’s genre crowds, who have flocked to check out such festival favorites as Hounds Of Love and Mom & Dad as well as cult classics and local programming. Likewise, PUFF will be bringing its brand of askew cinematic fun to the West Coast for the Unnamed Footage Festival, a collaboration with the Bay Area’s Overlook Theatre. The Unnamed Footage Festival will feature two days of found footage horror at San Francisco’s Historic Balboa Theater from March 24 to March 25. More information can be found on the event website.

Gage Barker (Scott King), a young man who grew up on the tales of Red Eye as a kid, learns that there could be some truth behind these folk tales. With a group of his friends and his camera equipment in tow, they hike into the woods to seek him out or to prove that he is nothing more than a myth. They hike into the woods to seek him out or to prove that he is nothing more than a myth.

RED EYE, directed by Tristan Clay, stars a large cast and the film has won several awards. Destinie Orndoff, Scott King, Heather Dorff and Hayden Wilberger centrally star. As well, RED EYE was nominated for “Best Feature,” “Best Director,” “Best Producer,” “Best Actress (Heather Dorff),” “Best Actor (Scott King)” and “Best SPFX” at the San Antonio Horrific Film Fest (2017).

The film is not for those with a weak stomach and contains some graphic and violent scenes. The film is so gory that Terror Films had to request that the filmmaker remove at least one moment in the story or risk having the film rejected by major digital platforms. Terror Films President Joe Dain says of the violence: “it’s a film for the true gore driven horror fans tired of the glazed over, more commercial horror fair we see coming out of the major studios.” This film is for true horror fans, everywhere!

RED EYE will be available on several digital, North American platforms. Platforms include: iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, and Xbox Live. Also, there are plans for a DVD release. As well, RED EYE will expand to worldwide markets through: iFlix, iTunes and Amazon International, soon.

Synapse Films Teams Up with Terror Films to Bring

Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary to Blu-ray

March 13th!

Los Angeles, CA– In 1989, director Mary Lambert collaborated with King of Horror Stephen King to bring his best-selling book PET SEMATARY to the screen.

As well, this film explores the impact PET SEMATARY has had on horror fans and scholars of Stephen King’s work.

Press Release: WiHM, Massive Blood Drive

From the Twisted Twins Productions Press Release:

It’s Women in Horror Month and that brings with it not only numerous celebrations of equality, but our MASSIVE Blood Drive! Yes, you can’t think horror without thinking blood so we took it upon ourselves to make the world aware of the very dire need for donors. Now in it’s 9th year, we decided to kick things up a notch by featuring 30 filmmaking teams from around the world and release a new Blood Services PSA for 30 days!

DISCLAIMER: This IS Horror, boys and grrls, so SOME of these do have VERY naughty content. Blood. Gore. EXTREME gore. Disturbing situations. Nudity. Sexual situations. Violence. Language.

If you are SENSITIVE to this kind of content, be a mature human being and just don’t watch. No need to spoil the fun for us fellow weirdos. We’re not hurting anyone. It just REALLY looks like we are 😉

Now, on with the show!!

 Presenting: “Be A Hero” by Vanessa Ionta Wright

Check it out here:


Vanessa Ionta Wright is a filmmaker based in Atlanta, GA. She is the co-owner of Above the Line Artistry ( as well as the co-founder and Festival Director of the Women in Horror Film Festival (  Vanessa collaborated with Samantha Kolesnik, Mark Simon (One Missed Call), David Irwin (House of 1000 Corpses) and Josh Oliver (Oculus) on Rainy Season, based on the story by Stephen King.  Vanessa has also directed the short film I Baked Him a Cake and a PSA for the WiHM9 Massive Blood Drive.  Vanessa graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Video Production & Film. She is a lifelong fan of cinema, most especially the horror genre. She enjoys punctuality, scary movies, a quick wit, sandwiches, the music of Michael Jackson, Halloween & Bacon Jam. She does not enjoy bugs, clowns, perpetual lateness, mean people, oppression, laziness, running more than 3 miles or curved walls.


I was really honored to be invited to create a PSA for the WiHM Massive Blood Drive.  This is a brilliant idea to blend the world of horror filmmaking with such an important cause.  I think it’s easy to take our blood for granted.  It is crucial to donate.  I hear people say all the time “I wish I could do something to help” and this is probably the most simple and effective means of helping others.  Giving your blood will save lives and I am so grateful to be a part of such an amazing cause.  The theme this year of Be a Hero is so appropriate, because when you give blood, when you save a life, you become a hero.

Full cast & crew can be found on IMDb at: Cast of Be a Hero:

Look for a NEW WiHM Massive Blood Drive PSA every day with the last one appearing on March 1st.
