Ginger Nuts of Horror
An ancient evil is unleashed in a small Mississippi town leaving a trail of death and destruction as it passes from host to host. The only hope of survival lies with a grizzled demon hunter (Dolph Lundgren) who has faced this terror before. Together with a reluctant FBI agent (Kristina Klebe) he has to figure out how to destroy a demon with the ability to possess its killer.
The latest film from Mike Mendez, the man behind the brillaint Big Ass Spider! has a new film out that needs or help to get the distibution it needs. I'm going to to support this project and I think you should as well, it looks like a lot of fun.
Full details can be found here, but some of the perks look amazing, from DVD's, replica props, signed `Boxing Gloves, and lunch with the producers. Lets get behind this and get it off the ground.
Here is why they need our help :-
The good news is that the actual making of the movie is finished. It’s filmed and post production has just been completed.
But theyhave some work to do to make this movie ready to be distributed. This is where they need your help.
They are on Indiegogo to raise money for two reasons:
1) After a movie is finished, there are several technical items that need to be created in order to get the movie out there. This process is called Delivery.
They need to create the Final Audio Mix, items such as the DCP (hard drive used for theatrical exhibition), have the film put through the Quality Control process, and more. They are expensive items, and they have to be done. It isn’t fun or pretty, but it’s a very important part of the process and your help is needed.
2) Lots of demons. Gory, bloody deaths. This movie looks amazing and deserves to be seen on the big screen.
But between cutting a new (and WAY less bloody) trailer for MPAA approval, MPAA fees, insurance, advertising, and the other costs of a theatrical distribution (P&A)

Robert J. Stava and Severed Press presents Nightmare from World's End.
In the aftermath of a major hurricane, a massive antique crate washes up on the shore of Raadsel Point. It's smuggled cargo from the wreck of the Edmund Wood, an unregistered transport returning from a very unusual expedition. . . a ship that went down in the deepest and most dangerous part of the Hudson known as 'The World's End'. The nightmare creature it contains is about to unleash havoc on the citizens of the sleepy river village of Wyvern Falls and inadvertently draw to it a predator thought extinct a millennia ago. It will come down to two people to figure out what both these creatures are and how to stop them: expat CID Detective John Easton and American Indian anthropologist Sarah Ramhorne. The two of them will have to unravel local Indian myths, outmaneuver a corrupt mayor, a failing Ancient Astronaut Theorist TV show and an overzealous Green Folk Festival if they are to stand any chance of saving the day.
Charlie Bars is back. The second novel featuring three-time-loser turned PI Charlie Bars is now available on kindle. The brainchild of East Londoner Ben Jones, returns for another thrilling adventure. After the beating he received in the dark, and brutal Pennies for Charon, our Benson and Hedges smoking anti hero decides to take a holiday in the country. Which as we all know is never a good, as our lovable anti-hero is caught up in yet another gripping adventure.
The Charlie Barr adventures are dark and often hilarious trip down the dark alleys of modern Noir. An everyman reluctant hero who just can't help getting out of his depth, once you pay a visit to Charlie's patch, you won't want to leave.
Take a break, they said. Get out in the fresh air, they said. Get away from it all, they said. They have a lot to answer for. The follow up to Pennies for Charon sees Charlie Bars caught up in dark doings in the bleak Northumbrian countryside; horse mutilation, deadly obsession, dog fighting, a family of maniacs, and a family in danger. The city can be dangerous but the countryside is murder…
Being a horror writer is never easy, there are no shortcuts to fame, fortune and notoriety. Now Matt Shaw has managed one of the three, so please help him get some fame and fortune. Matt Shaw's brand of extreme horror may not be for everyone, but Matt is one of the few true gents of the genre. He has always been one of those writers who makes a point to help others, a great guy and a great writer.
He is currently in the process of producing a set of comics based on some of his short stories, and needs your help to pay for the artwork. Now i am not normally a fan of Kickstarters as a rule, but when the artist involved is deemed Ginger Nuts worthy I fully get behind the project. He is offering some great deals, from being a character in the comic, some amazing lifetime advertising opportunities, a story based around you, and loads more. I'll let Matt take over and tell you little bit about the project. And please follow the link below to help Matt out, even a small donation of £1 will help to bring this great project to life.
F*cked-Up Shorts, also known as the White Cover Books written by horror author Matt Shaw......
are known to be somewhat disturbing, for an idea of what they're like - think along the lines of "Tales from the Crypt" but... darker.
There are over twenty of these stories written (available on Amazon with good reviews) but, so far, only ten of these are being released in comic form - the idea being each 20-25 page comic being its own standalone twisted tale, all on different themes but all designed very much to shock. These are, after all, written and adapted by Matt Shaw who is known for pushing boundaries with his Black Cover Range of books.
Issues one, two and three of the shorts will be based around the stories "Eleven", "Nugget" and "She" with a top artist lined-up! Keep an eye on this page for sample drawings to be added!
The funds being raised are going towards the artists work and the lettering of issue one. The story adaptation has already been completed. If there are funds left-over, they will be put into the second issue and so on, so fourth.
A visionary and bizarre slice of Mexican arthouse cinema, We Are The Flesh is an extraordinary and unsettling film experience, a sexually charged and nightmarish journey into an otherworldy dimension of carnal desire and excess, as well as a powerful allegory on the corrupting power of human desire.
Noé Hernández (Sin nombre, Miss Bala)
Emiliano Rocha Minter (Writer/Director)
A young brother and sister, roaming an apocalyptic city, take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit. He puts them to work building a bizarre cavernous structure, where he acts out his insane and depraved fantasies. Trapped in this maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of dark and forbidden behaviour.
Acclaimed by the Oscar-winning Mexican directors of The Revenant and Gravity, and playing to rave reviews and stunned audiences at genre film festivals around the world, We Are The Flesh is that rare beast – an intelligent, beautifully-crafted film that is also provocative and deeply disturbing.
Mixing the graphic, powerful imagery of Gapser Noe’s Love and Enter The Void with the sureal, hallucinatory impact of Alejandro Jodorowsky, and taking Mexican arthouse cannibal flick We Are What We Are to the next level, We Are The Flesh is a bizarre, psychedelic head trip, mixing intense, outrageously explicit imagery with a profund allegory on the nature of existence, to make this an unforgettable, boundary-pushing experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Visionary, unrelenting, and certainly not for the prudish or faint-hearted, We Are The Flesh is an erotic inferno of the senses that manages to pack all manner of delirium into its short running time, including incest, necrophilia, and cannibalism, while its tantalisingly ambiguous plot can be read as an allegory for the fall of mankind.
Lead actor Noé Hernández has the malevolent intensity of Wild At Heart-era Willem Dafoe, while actress Maria Evoli is hypnotically alluring, and gives a bold, no-holds-barred performance as the young woman who falls under his strange spell.
Emiliano Rocha Minter is part of the new wave of Mexican directors backed by Oscar-winning The Revenant director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu. Here making his feature debut, Minter doesn’t hold back in realising a fearless, unprecedented vision of Mexico.
“This is no ordinary party,” one of the characters exclaims towards the end of the film. Indeed it is – this is extreme art cinema at its boldest and most taboo-bustingly bizarre.
“I loved this film. It takes over our waking thoughts, like a recurring dream we try to forget, because we are fearful of finding out it may be a memory.” Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron
“We Are the Flesh is a very personal, very powerful film that deeply impressed me.” The Revenant director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu
“A deeply visceral and powerful piece that examines the darkest corners of the human soul, exposing parts of humanity we would rather attribute to some kind of monster. Brave, unapologetic, and morbidly beautiful to take in. Emiliano Rocha has created a world that ensnares the viewer in this nightmarish tale." American Mary directors The Soska Sisters

About The Book
Some call it The Long Silence, others The Hush. Whatever it is, the world has gone quiet. No electricity, no engines, most of the people gone. There are survivors, small groups enduring as best they can in a seemingly abandoned world.
At night, the landscape glows with unnatural light. The stillness is broken by the desolate cries of the lost population, returning now to search for...no one knows what. What is certain, though, is that those they drag into the shadows do not return.
The Veil contains the final testaments of two disparate groups; a band of survivalists barricaded into a single block of an American city, and a young family hiding in a remote part of the English countryside.
But there are enemies among the survivors too, using the cataclysm to serve their own desires. If the end of the world can't cleanse the human heart, what reason can there be to continue?
