Special updates and Annoucements!

Posted in Horror News, Updates with tags , on November 8, 2012 by splatterpictures

As I’m sure most of you noticed the updates to the site have been slow the past month. I try my best to maintain content here so that you always have a reason to check in.  Recently I have begun work on writing a massive creative project. Probably the biggest project I’ve ever done. When I am able to give you guys more details I will post it so in the meantime be patient.

While I am away, my good friend Scott has agreed to keep the site content rolling for the next month. Scott is an extremely talented writer that I couldn’t be more happy about contributing to Splatterpictures. His unique perspective of Horror has always kept me entertained. I think you’ll find his stuff to be some damn fine writing.

 

During the course of the month I will try to give some updates myself but they will most likely be bare bones stuff.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D trailer (The Revelation of the Ressurection of the Revenge of the Return)

Posted in Horror News with tags on July 27, 2012 by splatterpictures

Well even though Revelation is possible the laziest sequel name this side of just putting “Two” (actually I’d prefer two over Revelation) the trailer for the movie sequel to 2006’s Silent Hill has arrived. Silent Hill is probably my favorite horror game for the original Playstation and although the movie itself wasn’t perfect I liked it enough to be looking forward to the next addition.

 

Offical Synopsis is GO!

Heather Mason and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand, Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever.”

Who knows how it will do but I’m going to give it a fighting chance.

The Awakening Trailer and general updates

Posted in Horror News with tags on June 29, 2012 by splatterpictures

Hey all, Just a quickie update. I’ve been letting my brain rest a bit on horror. I just feel a little over-saturated in the stuff this past month. That being said The Awakening Trailer that has been floating around looks really good to me. You know me and old time ghost stories.

 

Other than that I wish to tease you with my own news that there will be some fun new announcements and additions to the site coming up but I don’t want to officially announce anything until all the details are confirmed. Check back in the coming weeks for all that good stuff.

V/H/S Red Band Trailer

Posted in Horror News, Updates with tags , , on June 19, 2012 by splatterpictures

A guy I really respect in terms of horror movies, made sure I was informed about the redband trailer of VHS. The trailer alone looks fantastic. I’m not really ever tired of the found footage genre finding it the easiest to get in to atmosphere wise. Something about the wild cam and low quality that works for me. Call it a quirk.

 

Synopsis Time!  “When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn’t going to be as easy as they thought. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old television sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one, they aretreated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.

This flick had already made the rounds at the Sundance film festival but us normals will be able to check it out in theaters by October 5th. So far it’s gotten some nice reviews from people who seem compelled to emphasis they dislike found footage and enjoy it in spite of itself. Format doesn’t make or break a movie for me. I will be checking for execution of said format.
