It’s a match made in horror Hell: Rob Zombie and American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis are in talks with Fox for a series detailing the events of, and leading up to, the notorious Manson Family murders.
Super Channel cranks up the creep factor with DARKNET, a new Canadian horror anthology web and television series from Vincenzo Natali and Steven Hoban, featuring episodes by Natali, Hoban, Rue Morgue president Rodrigo Gudiño (The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh) and newcomers Jeremy Ball and Anthony Scott Burns.
The team behind HELLIONS, the upcoming horror film from Pontypool director Bruce McDonald, has just launched a filmmaking competition with a rather cool grand prize: the winning entry will be a part of McDonald’s new movie.
“One of my first films was a super-8 zombie feature I shot in high school on my grandfather’s camera,” says McDonald. “OUR GLORIOUS DEAD premiered in the school cafeteria to a raucous audience. We want to be that cafeteria for some of today’s filmmakers and horror fans of all ages.”
Hit the jump for a video from the director and a press release that will explain things a little more thoroughly. For more details and to enter, head over to the official Hellions website. Good luck!
