Kbatz Kraft: DIY Halloween Repairs!

Is DIY Decoration and Halloween How-To really worth it compared to the expensive store-bought accessories? Does your project hold up compared to “the real thing”? Can you fix what’s broken in a weekend? Kristin Battestella aka Kbatz makes minor repairs on a DIY Cardboard Coffin alongside therapeutic painting techniques and positive Halloween philosophy.

Day Two of the Halloween DIY repairs continues for Kristin Battestella aka Kbatz with hot glue guns and some Frankenstein sewing to fix an Oversize Pumpkin Ottoman before the finishing touches on the DIY Cardboard Coffin and the reconstruction of the fallen Shakespeare Cardboard Tombstone. Not everybody can go and purchase everything new, new, new all the time – especially with recycled, unique projects like this!

Is masking tape good enough? In today’s buy, buy, buy mentality we often forget a lot of things need regular cost saving tune ups. Minor, expected maintenance on Halloween DIY Projects is realistic, affordable, and just as fun the second time as Kristin Battestella aka Kbatz waxes on morbid reading recommendations and faux stone painting tricks as the repaired Shakespeare Tombstone is finished.

How to Make Stuffed Pumpkins – A Kbatz Kraft!

Horror Gaming: Rise of Nightmares

This new video game from Sega reminds me so much of one my husband loved playing back in the old PC days – Killing Time. The music and setting is very reminiscent of it. If you ever played Killing Time, or just enjoy a good zombie killing, check this out.

Rise of Nightmares heightens the horror experience like never before, forcing you to use your whole body against your enemies. Using cutting-edge technology, you will be trapped in a nightmare-world of zombies, monsters and hellish scientists – the only way out is to fight. The nightmare will rise exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 on September 6, 2011.

Horror Gaming Buzz: Dead Island

Dead Island is a game being produced by Techland. It’s a third-person action game where zombies attack a family on vacation on a tropical island. The trailer below gives you just a taste of what is to come. The projected release date is September of 2011.

Dead Island Cinematic Debut Trailer [HD]
Developer: Techland
Genre: FPS
Platform: PS3/X360/PC
Publisher: Deep Silver
Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

I felt the trailer, although slow, was awesome to watch. It was almost like a movie as it shows you a sequence of events, running forward and back, until they meet in the middle. I know a few zombie game fanatics who are going to love this one!

Horror Game: I Am Alive

Horror Addicts fan, Jesse, submitted this horror video game trailer.
He says he really wants to play it!

According to Wikipedia, I Am Alive,  takes place in Chicago after a major-scale earthquake has destroyed the city and separated it from mainland, while the rest of the world suffers a water crisis.

Rumored to be out Spring 2011, we could still not find
a confirmed release date from the company making it, UBISOFT.
