Those who think they know what to expect from a low-budget horror movie are re-thinking their perception after the latest endeavor from producer/actress Leesa Rowland and writer/director Tara Robinson. The duo is testing the very limits of horror film making as it’s known in “After Birth,” a movie that promises to offend, disturb, and disgust even the avid horror fan with its antagonizing supernatural twist to social issues like homelessness, drug abuse, and abortion.
Breaking the unspoken male-dominated boundaries in film making, Rowland teams up with Robinson as they tell the boys to step aside as they roll up their sleeves and, with their team of DangerBitches and create a story designed to show viewers that true terror is something women face every day. As evidenced by the newly released teaser trailer, After Birth is going to be a bloody, scary, monster-filled … Read More »
Phew, let me just take a minute to catch my breath and regain my senses. OK, that’s better. Let me explain.
I’m sure by now you have all heard of the legend of Slender man, the tall faceless abductor of children and nightmare to many. Slender man was created back in 2007 by Victor Surge for a paranormal creature contest for Somethingawful.com.

Old world legends will tell of a different story however and if you look into it, which you may not want to, you might also find yourself questioning where he came from. Many articles are written about the legend including this one: Slender Man. However, his existence is not the topic of discussion at … Read More »
Residents of Camden, NJ, are mourning another tragic murder/suicide in a town that has consistently been ranked one of the top 5 most dangerous cities in the U.S. This time, prosecutors say the victim was 2-year-old Zahree Thomas and the gruesome murder was committed by his own mother Chevonne Thomas in what investigators are describing as “one of the most horrific crime scenes they’ve seen.”
The 33-year-old mother of two reportedly called 9-1-1 around midnight and NBC10 News in Philadelphia reported that she hysterically told the operator that she had done something to her child.
Police arrived at the scene on the 1400 Block of Kaighns Avenue around 12:30.
Upon entering the residence, the police immediately found the decapitated body of a child on the first floor, according to Jason Laughlin from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

When I was a boy, there was a bridge on the west side of town. Euless was the name of the town. The bridge used to cross the Red River and connected Euless to the banks of Grant County. This river was also the boundary of our county, Hood County.
When I was twelve, I decided I wanted to check out this collapsed bridge at the bottom of a river. I wanted to explore this forbidden zone to see what hidden treasures I could find down by the river.
On the other side of this bridge was another small town called Villa Rica. During the civil war, this bridge was under constant attack. The two cities had chosen opposite sides of the war. My town, Euless, had chosen to support the Union troops, while Villa Rica had chosen to support the Rebels. … Read More »
The terms “Armageddon” and “apocalypse” have become synonymous with the end of the world. They have been used to describe various earth-destroying events brought on by some form of natural disaster, or an interstellar object colliding with the earth, or even a horde of rampaging zombies. The term apocalypse, however, is derived from the Greek word “apokalupsis,” which doesn’t mean global annihilation, but instead means a prophetic disclosure or a “revelation.” The source of the term Armageddon reveals that its intended meaning is tied to a specific set of circumstances that lead not to end of the earth itself, but to the large-scale destruction of mankind.
What is Armageddon?
The concept of Armageddon originated from Christian theology, so the details of its meaning are inseparable from the Christian prophesy that inspired it and must be considered within that context. The term comes … Read More »
The next installment of Paranormal Activity has just released a full trailer. Just like the first three horror masterpieces, Paranormal Activity 4 is again centered around home-video footage of the paranormal haunting innocent victims. This time around it seems as though it’s a blonde teenager who is being haunted. This installment features Katie Featherston like the previous three as well as “Glee’s” Dianna Agron, Sprague Grayden, and Brady Allen. This one based on the trailer alone looks as though it will not let down the franchise that has already raked in close to $600 million. We may finally find out what demon-Katie does with Hunter, her kidnapped nephew. Also, this time around the film takes place in November of 2011 rather than the 80′s which was the setting for Paranormal Activity 3. It is set to hit theaters October 19, 2012.
