Last year, I had the immense pleasure of being an Associate Producer on Zack Ward‘s debut feature horror film, “Restoration.” The film has been KILLING it on iTunes, sitting in the top 10 horror films for several weeks, and rightfully so. “Restoration” is a fantastic horror film that relies on characters and story over cheap scares and gimmicks, something that is refreshing to see in this genre.
Produced by Ward and indie horror stud James Cullen Bressack, this film has quickly become one of my new favorites. Yes, I understand that I am bias because I worked on the production, but that being said I know a strong horror film when I see one. I knew this film would be good when I first read the script, but now that I have seen the final product I can easily say this is one of the best horror films I’ve ever been a part of.
The driving force behind “Restoration” are the performers. Lead by Emily O’Brien and newcomer Adrian Gaeta, along with a chilling performance from Ward himself, this emotion filled horror flick will definitely get under your skin and truly make you root for the heroes of the film. Gaeta and O’Brien’s chemistry is electric, and isn’t horror so much more fun when you actually care about the characters in these frightening situations?
If you haven’t had a chance to see this one yet, please check it out. I won’t go into the plot as you should discover what happens in this film along with the characters. Trust me, you’re gonna dig it.
Hats off to Ward for an impressive debut. “Restoration” is not to be missed.

Christmas time is right around the corner, horror lovers! Maybe this year you’re going to visit the family, perhaps you’re going on a trip, or maybe, just maaaybe, you’re going to be drinking spiked egg nog at an Ugly Sweater Party?? Well, that seems to be the plan for writer/director Aaron Mento, who is officially in preproduction for the feature length horror comedy, “Ugly Sweater Party”! This film is being produced by Mento, Charles Chudabala and myself (Hunter Johnson), and we are stoked to bring some serious holiday fear in 2016!
Ugly Sweater Party will be the second feature film from Mento & Ocular Migraine Productions, who entered the scene with his thought provoking horror comedy “Standards of Living.” Recently, he created the popular horror web series “Choose Their Kill,” partnered with CryptTV. Now he’s back with a frosty new vision of Christmas terror! We’ve been quietly working on this film for some time, and now that we are officially gearing up to film, we had to share! Here’s the logline:
An ugly sweater party turns into a bloodbath when an evil Christmas sweater possesses one of the partygoers…
If you enjoy “R” rated horror loaded with GORE, demonic psycho killers, blood thirsty revenge and plenty of ugly sweaters, then for the sake of Jesus’ birthday keep up with our project! We’ll keep you up to date on everything happening with this film right here on LAHorror.com, but give us an early Christmas present and follow “Ugly Sweater Party” on Twitter,Facebook & Instagram! Everyone’s invited to the party!
Holidays are all about great food–everyone knows that. And this Thanksgiving, Ginger Christ, the super sassy and delightfully demented cooking show host, has served up a whopping feast of horror in her Thanksgiving Special! Directed by Alex Napiwocki and costarring a group of hilarious misfits (and a certain critter…), Thanksgiving is transformed into an absolute scream with their Ginger Christ holiday horror series.
I love bizarre horror, and as soon as I watched Ginger Christ’s Halloween and now Thanksgiving Specials, I’m sold. It’s weird, super twisted and will either make you die laughing or turn off the show in disgust! But if you do that, well, then you’re no damn fun. Watch Ginger Christ’s Thanksgiving Special, titled “What’s Eating Critter?” here!
Tasty, am I right? Also be sure to watch her Halloween Special!
Can’t wait Can’t wait what she’s serving up for Christmas…Happy Holidays Horror Lover!
What would you do for $100,000? A lot, I’m sure. Probably some stuff you don’t even want to think about. But here’s a question, for that kind of cash, would you risk your own life? Writer/Director Timothy Ray Brandon & True That Productions poses this very question in his new horror thriller, “Survive“! This film follows a group of strangers who meet for a big money opportunity, only to find out that the only way to get the cash is to SURVIVE!
This feature film is action packed, thrilling, and loads of bloody fun. I personally had the privilege of acting in this film and I cannot be more excited to share it with you all. I can tell you, from first hand experience, that this film is loaded with incredibly talented performers, including but not limited to Charles Chudabala, Gary Laramore, Matt Holbrook, Thomas Gunter, Errol Sack, Jenna Purdy and Denise Woelpern. It’s a great ensemble piece full of excitement, and did I mention a bit of gruesome gore as well? (spoiler alert – not everyone survives!)
What I love most about this film is the passion behind it, lead by Timothy Ray Brandon. This is another prime example of horror done right on a smaller budget. Brandon crafts an exhilarating film that will keep you guessing until the very end. I’m extremely proud to be a part of this project, you will definitely get a kick out this!
This film is now available to watch in it’s entirety, so if you want to Survive, then rent it now!
