DEAD ANT had it’s premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater (It will always be Grauman’s to me!) on October 10th, 2017 at Hollywood’s Screamfest Horror Film Festival. The film stars Tom Arnold (True Lies), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings), Rhys Coiro (Entourage), Jake Busey (Starship Troopers), and Leisha Hailey (The L Word) as the ‘80s hair metal band Sonic Grave (of course Tom Arnold plays Danny, their manager.) and this film delivers as a comedy horror B-movie!

This past weekend, Shannon and Craig had the chance to experience The 17th Door's newest experience, Perpetuum Penitentiary, where guests would be locked in a prison alongside the infamous Paula and have the chance to venture through the latest chapter in her saga. The 17th Door has become a staple within the haunt community most notably for their extreme elements, but also for the brilliant work that is done primarily with the makeup and set design. Shannon had the chance to speak with Haylee Detroit, the Head of Makeup at 17th Door, about the process of applying the makeup, the challenges she faces, and where her love for makeup and FX came from.

Hayes (Annabelle, The Conjuring) about their latest films and the truth surrounding the supposed possession and death of Sister Marinescu.
As someone who is a haunt fanatic, I've always been drawn to horror films that center around haunted attractions. When it was announced that 2014's THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT was going to be receiving a follow-up sequel, I was beyond ecstatic. For the release of the film, I had the opportunity to speak with director/co-writer Bobby Roe and co-writer Zack Andrews about the continuation of their story, visiting local haunted attractions, and if haunts have begun to take things too far.
Earlier today it was announced that Spell Caster Media would be filming a biopic on one horror's most notorious, and underappreciated, writers, H.P. Lovecraft. To learn more about what this film will offer, Craig spoke with Ryan Grulich about THE LOVECRAFTS and discussed everything from Lovecraft's racism to his fandom.
With Halloween just around the corner and haunts gearing up for their opening night, Craig had the chance to interview Melissa Carbone of LA Haunted Hayride fame, where they discussed everything from home haunts to scouring the world for new horror concepts.
