Horror Packs 2 - Support Charity While Getting Your Horror Groove On!
My good friend Brandon over at Movies At The Dog Farm alerted me to this great new package.
Horror Packs 2 is a horror bundle that is available in two different tiers. You decide what you want to pay. Some of the money goes to the filmmakers and the rest goes to charity.....not unlike that Humble Bundle packs that are available to gamers.
Horror Pack 2 - Tier 1 - Pay a minimum of $2
You receive two films and two music albums:
The films you receive in Tier 1 are:
(synopsis and descriptions direct from the website)
Blood Brothers (Short Film) - Michael and Lindsay have the perfect marriage, the perfect house, and the perfect life together. Little do they know everything is about to change. After coming home from celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, the couple receive surprise visitors that will change both of their lives forever. Family ties run deep but, in Michael’s case, they run blood deep. Blood will be shed and secrets will be revealed that will keep you guessing until the final shocking moment.
The Bloody Pit of Horror: When a photographer and a group of models choose what appears to be an abandoned castle for their next shoot, they stumble into the realm of a maniac intent on executing anyone that comes near the castle. Plenty of creative torture devices and general absurdity in this one!
The albums you recieve in Tier 1 are:
Ghoulshow - Tales from the Netherworld: From Graveyard Calling Records comes Ghoulshow’s blood-drenched electronic album that combines the sounds of classic horror soundtracks with drum & bass and dubstep for a modernized touch.
“a beautiful love song to 50s B-movies via hard electronic dance beats! Ghoulshow has crafted his art and created an album that transports listeners to the worlds he creates digitally offering a highly visual sonic experience and comes highly recommended.”
- Mark Pidgeon, UK Horror Scene
The Panic Beats - Without Warning: The third release from one man horror punk band The Panic Beats continues the trend of catchy pop-punk infused with a stark contrast of dark lyrics. Without Warning also has one of the coolest covers we’ve ever seen, with artwork by Rick Melton, who’s known for his Arrow Video cover artwork.
“The fact that the Panic Beats manage to make these songs so goddamn tuneful and memorable only makes them that much creepier. It’s disturbing to sing along to any album with a cover this depraved. That being said, you should totally get it.”
- Rock Star Journalist
Tier 2 is available starting at a minimum of $6
Tier 2 includes everything in Tier 1 PLUS:
from Apprehensive Films
When Jim Mathews, a sales rep for a genetic design firm, gets caught cheating on his wife she doses him with an experimental serum, causing his limbs to fall off and turn into a pack of bloodthirsty monsters. Thus forming a “Colony.” To satisfy his unnatural hunger, Jim preys on hot young women.
“Colony” was originally released in 1998 under the title “Colony Mutation” by E.I. (now Pop Cinema) on VHS. Shock Cinema Magazine called it “genuinely creepy” and it had a multi-page spread in Fangoria issue #161. The movie was shot on Super-8mm film, making for a truly gritty and unnerving viewing experience.
Tommy Creep - Vacant Tombs and Full Moons: Tommy Creep’s style, aptly labeled horrorstep, is demonstrated perfectly in this hard-hitting album from Graveyard Calling Records. There’s more than enough quotes and references contained in this album to keep even the most dedicated horror fan guessing at times.
“…like a Prodigy album with John Carpenter as the front man.”
- Mark Pidgeon, UK Horror Scene
Enola: Enola is a horror/adventure game about love, hate, and death. You play as a young girl on a mysterious place, looking for her missing girlfriend. However, as you explore this world, you find there is something dark and evil lurking in the shadows. You’ll have to be quick and cunning to survive. Do you have what it takes to save your loved one before it’s too late?
If you need even FURTHER incentive there are also another two mystery titles that will be unlocked later on when more of the packs have been sold. All purchases support Child's Play Charity as well as The Electronic Frontier Foundation.
