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!

Horror is such a diverse genre, with so many different elements that can make new projects feel fresh. There’s a million things that have terrorized horror audiences over the years, but maybe the most overlooked is the terror of one’s self, the internal demons that we all deal with that sometimes grow to unimaginable monsters. In Brialynn Massie‘s new horror web series, “Rvth,” we see just how real our inner demons can become.
LAHorror.com recently teamed up with Emily Eden Productions, Chris Pardal & Dominic Pattin to create this new epic horror web series, the first season entitled “Rvth: Genesis.” The series was co-written, directed and produced by Brialynn Massie, who also plays the title character. The first trailer for this series recently dropped and we couldn’t be more excited – this is definitely a show that will rock you to your very core.
Follow Ruth who, after a failed suicide attempt, must find her way out of Hell to save her younger brother, Eli, and the rest of her loved ones from a government induced Apocalypse.
There’s a lot of different elements going on in this show, which was one of the main reasons we loved this script. Filled with incredible character arcs, relationships, carnage and conspiracy, “Rvth: Genesis” will prove to be an epic that will leave the audience wanting more. Most notable, creator Bria Lynn Massie finished this season through self financing and incredible tenacity, aligning a cast and crew of over 30 people to help make her vision come to life. An incredible example of a hard working indie filmmaker putting her vision out there and rallying fellow artists to the cause.
And as stated before, “Rvth: Genesis” deals with many complex issues that not only horror fans, but human beings alike, will be able to relate to. Family turmoil, broken hearts, lost friendships and suicide are just some of the major issues addressed in this series, which is also loaded with scares and gore of biblical proportions. And while exploring complex human drama in horror creates great fiction, we’d like you to remember that if you’re experiencing depression or suicidal thoughts, there is always help out there, and nobody is hopeless. You are not alone. Please call the National Suicide Prevention hotline at 1 (800) 273-8255, or visit www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org.
You will love this web series, which is set to debut on October 25th, leading to the first season finale on Halloween. Get ready for “Rvth: Genesis,” it will possess you…
Hey, I’ve been meaning to ask, do you know anyone named Jennifer?
It’s been some time since we’ve had an update, but for great reason, I assure you. I’m excited to announce that LAHorror.com’s first feature film, “2 Jennifer,” has wrapped principle photography and is on slate for completion in August! It’s been a wild ride putting this film together, and fans of murder, violence and horrifying GORE will not be disappointed! “2 Jennifer” is a hard “R” rated sequel to our good friend James Cullen Bressack’s 2013 film, “To Jennifer.” You can read our review of his film here.
“Two filmmakers attempt to make the perfect sequel to “To Jennifer,” however a dark secret threatens the lives of everyone involved. Jennifer, a beautiful actress, now has two options: become the heroine of the film, or face a brutal death.”
Hello Horror Lovers! I’ve recently had the privilege of working on two incredible horror projects entitled “Bethany” and “Restoration,” directed by James Cullen Bressack & Zack Ward, respectively. These feature films will no doubt chill you to your very bones and shock your system – that’s a personal guarantee. While principle photography is wrapped and the films make their way into post, we wanted to give you a sneak peek into not only the films themselves, but the filmmaking process.
Film Courage, an incredible resource and supporter of indie films, visited the set of “Bethany” and shared some incredible behind the scenes insight for the project. I’ve got the playlist here, so I HIGHLY recommend checking them out, especially if you’re an aspiring filmmaker yourself. Enjoy!
While James Cullen Bressack continues filming his latest project, “Bethany,” LAHorror.com had the pleasure of viewing “Pernicious,” Bressack’s ultra violent ghost film that’s making the rounds now in the horror circuit. Fans of Bressack’s films will no doubt be in for a shocking surprise, as this is not only one of his most brutal and violent films (though probably not as rough as “Hate Crime,” which has been banned in the UK), but also his biggest film in terms of scope. “Pernicious” is a horror genre blending blood bath that will keep you guessing until the very end…
It was supposed to be an adventure of a lifetime as three young girls spend the summer in Thailand. But their adventure quickly becomes a nightmare when the trio unleashes the spirit of a murdered child with only one thing on her mind – revenge.
“Pernicious” works on a variety of levels and manages to differentiate itself from other films with similar set ups. We’ve seen young American’s overseas get brutalized before, but torture is far from the only thing “Pernicious” has to offer. Instead we get a rather clever ghost story, with elements of the torture porn nasties of the early 2000s, as well as something completely new and freaky…the gold little girl statue. All of this is cast over the beautiful landscape of Thailand, which adds to the mystery and isolation that this film offers. It’s hard to pinpoint the scariest aspect of “Pernicious,” but let me just say that the golden statue is freaky as hell. You’ll understand when you watch it. I love when horror films master several subgenres in one picture, and “Pernicious” does just that.
Another thing that “Pernicious” masters is the gore. Can we talk about the gore? Toenails, eyeballs, throat slashes and oh so much more. “Pernicious” brings it. In fact, it’s a golden blood bath. If you’re a gore hound that likes it to look legit, then look no further. Watch “Pernicious.”
But what’s good gore without good victims (and killers)? Our trio of leads, Alex (Ciara Hanna), Julie (Emily O’Brien) and Rachel (Jackie Moore) all do a great job keeping this film engaging and entertaining. Humor when humors needed, creepy when things get creepy. There are times when their Americanisms play a bit hard, but in all honesty it’s believable. We’ve all got friends like these girls. O’Brien in particular steals the show in a couple of scenes, one of them involving a very large knife and another involving a creepy witch doctor.
Bressack no doubt has hit a new high in his filmmaking career with “Pernicious,” and if this is any indication as to what’s to come then horror filmmakers should start to get really excited. Bressack directs “Pernicious” extremely effectively, his real talent shines when things get rough for these characters. The sequences involving the golden statue were especially effective. Bressack also litters clues to the films final secrets throughout, which makes a repeat viewing especially enjoyable. If Bressack isn’t on your radar already, get with the program and catch up on his work. Starting with “Pernicious” isn’t a bad idea at all.
I really enjoyed this film, and if you’re a sicko like me then chances are you will too. So keep your eyes peeled for this one…you don’t want to miss this golden opportunity for terror!
Greetings, horror lovers! It’s my pleasure to share the news that a new production company, Grit Film Works, is now in production on two micro-budget horror films that are going to haunt your face off! The films, entitled “Restoration” & “Bethany,” are being produced by Grit Film Works’ James Cullen Bressack & Zack Ward.
Two Microbudget Horror Films First on Slate From New Production Company
“Grit Film Works is off to a terrifyingly fast start.
The production company, owned by filmmakers JamesCullen Bressack and Zack Ward, is in the middle of back-to-back shoots for two horror films.
Bethany stars Stefanie Estes as Claire, a woman who moves back into her childhood home with her husband. The abusive, traumatic memories of her mother return to haunt her — as her husband becomes busier with work, she finds herself in a fog of memories — as a small figure tries to reach out to her.
The second film, Restoration centers on a young doctor who moves to a new town with her husband while she completes her residency. Things seem to be going well, as she and her husband, a contractor, renovate their home, and meet a fun couple next door. Things take a dark turn when they discovery a diary buried within the walls of their house, and a terrifying spirit is awakened.
I fucking love camping. There’s no denying that. And while I’ve been lucky enough to survive all of my camping adventures, many characters in the horror universe, unfortunately, have not. After all, putting yourself in terrible peril by gathering and partying in the deep monster and serial killer infested woods is a quality recipe for great horror–or campy horror to say the least! To close out 2014, I took a trip into the deep woods to discuss camping horror with Horrorble Podcast, your source for straight talk, face value horror!
Horrorble Podcast is hosted by Devon Arnold, along with co-hosts Dylan Holland, Manton Frierson and Brandon Ritman (aka Blootster). On the docket? Camping Horror, particularly in the films “Exists,” “Friday the 13th (2009)” and one of my personal favorites, “Sleepaway Camp.” Check out the episode to see which of these films earned a GEM or a STINKER rating from myself and the Cast!
What Devon and his crew have created with Horrorble Podcast is an everyman approach to different horror topics, which is one of the reasons why I love this cast. These guys aren’t necessarily horror film buffs, but rather regular fans who know what they like and what they don’t like, and have a pretty damn good time telling you why. That being said, their insight into the genre is impressive and worth noting. They have already released a plethora of horror content on their cast, covering a wide variety of horror topics and sub-genres. Some of my favorite episodes include “The Christmas Episode,” “The Don’t Episode” and their interviews with filmmakers Ivan Kavanaugh (The Canal) and Aaron Moorehead & Justin Benson (V/H/S: VIRAL).
If you’re a casual horror fan or a die-hard, definitely keep up with Horrorble Podcast. And for any of you campers out there, for God’s sake don’t have sex or do drugs in those woods. It’s just asking for trouble that you probably can’t handle…
Writer/Director Derek Mungor, the filmmaker behind LAHorror.com favorite “Desolation Wilderness,” is back with another creeper, “You Are Not Alone.” This is a super beautiful film is about friendship, memories and revisiting old times…oh yeah, and a totally freaky serial killer. It’s a genuine slice of life turned hyper suspenseful slasher movie, shot entirely from the prospective of one character. The film is co-written by Chris O’Brien.
Natalie is a college graduate visiting her hometown over the 4th of July. The night she arrives, she is stalked by a sociopathic killer.
I always love it when horror movies have a nice slow burn, but it makes me really hope that the filmmakers pull it off in the end. Mungor and his team knock this one out of the park. “You Are Not Alone” is one of the scariest serial killer slashers I have ever seen. It takes advantage of your perception, aided by sincere and welcoming performances by a fun and likable cast and makes you feel as if you’re truly living as one of the characters in the film. This both adds to it’s unique charm and also amplifies the horror when things get rough. And when sometimes slasher movies get caught up in narrative and over explanation, “You Are Not Alone” takes a much different approach. The film isn’t exactly about why these killings are happening, but moreso about the events themselves. It’s the best type of slasher film: one that respects its audience and simply shows you the events of one tragic July 4th weekend.
Do yourself a favor and watch this one with ALL of the lights turned off. I mean that. Hats off to Mungor and Director of Photography Ryan Glover for creating what seemed like constant suspense and anticipation, primarily through the use of light and shadow. A great look accompanied by an amazing score by Jason Aud and some ultra creepy sound design by Jason Neumann, this film is incredibly intense…I cannot emphasize that enough. “You Are Not Alone” is the type of slasher that had me at the edge of my seat, jumping at every turn, and when you see it, chances are you will be too.
And on a side note, it’s really great to see a 4th of July horror movie. I can honestly say that this film has potential to be a once a year favorite for the BBQ holiday, much in the same way that other holiday horror favorites have found spots in our hearts. This movie pays homage to a lot of greats before it, yet it never loses itself. Die hard slasher movie fans, get ready for some fireworks, and remember…”You Are Not Alone.”
