Revealing the talent of Deon Taylor and Chain Letter, his film By Ron Gilbert I feel like I have been in a chain letter with Deon Taylor which started over a month ago with a phone interview to his home in Sacramento .

Horror Day

user
Today’s blog is a horror special, partly because I’m having an ‘Abertoir Horror Festival day’ as I’m meeting up with the other members of staff today so I thought before the Tarantino-Venice news kicks in, lets have a full-on horror day. Frightfest finished on Monday 30th and word on the internet of some of the films screened has been pretty good. I hear that 13HS was ‘cheap and cheerful’ (always a good thing), Cherry Tree Lane was an improvement from The Cottage, whereas The Tortu...

DARK FILM

Director: Craig Ford.
You would be forgiven for thinking that the shooting of Horror Bill was just like any other film shoot. Attention seeking actors, power mad Assistant directors, dodgy equipment. But when the actors start to die in a series of unusual ‘accidents’ we discover there are more sinister things going on here. Who is the Director? Why have only the Assistant Director and the deranged Production assistant met him? What’s really killing off the cast? Are they really accidents? How come the special effects look so good on this small budget horror? The answers to these questions all point to one sinister conclusion….One too terrible to mention here! All we can tell you is that Horror Bill is a very ‘Dark Film’!
