Chris Lund

Chris Lund is a web designer by day, independent filmmaker by night. His interactive zombie film "Survive the Outbreak" took the online horror community by storm a few weeks back, and we recently sat down with him to ask a few questions about the project. If you want to catch up, the film can be participated in at www.survivetheoutbreak.com.

So where did this whole idea come from?

The idea came from years of doing interactive work. Just being around all the latest stuff being done is a big help towards thinking on the right track. These days, every other client tries to do something viral, but it's extremely tough for a client to achieve that, especially when they're trying to market a brand at the same time. The Outbreak, being self-funded, had the luxury of having no one else to satisfy but ourselves.

This week's DVD shelf is filled with direct to video goodness and box sets galore. Well, two box sets anyways. Regardless, there's a whole plethora of horror and exploitation just waiting to be inserted firmly into your DVD player!

Sid Haig and Ken Foree star in Brotherhood of Blood, a story about vampire hunters infiltrating a vampires nest to rescue one of their own! Vampires are over done but Haig and Foree on screen together is always a welcome sight!

Horror Headlines 10/14/08

AMC's MonterFest (which is apparently called "Fear Fest" now, boo), has released their schedule. Not too crazy about the lineup this year, but I guess that's just because I'd be happy watching the "Halloween" sequels on a continuous loop for 8 days. Am I the only one?

Steven C Miller, director of the low budget indie flick "Automoton Transfusion", has been picked to helm the remake of "Motel Hell". The original 80's film follows Farmer Vincent, as he buries unsuspecting tourists in his back yard and then harvests them for meat. And in relation to our first story, I noticed that it's screening at several points during Fear Fest. So be sure to catch the original before this remake makes it's way to screens.

Let's be clear on this, Mark Wahlberg does NOT want you to say hello to your mother for him... what he does want you to do however, is check out the new Max Payne poster.

In Real People News: 

It turns out those court appointed breathalyzers meant to stop drunk drivers from being able to start their cars are beatable after all. Never underestimate the craftiness of alcoholics.

I'm only reporting on this story about "fauxmosexuals" because I love when people needlessly cram words together... oh, and lesbians.

73 year old grandma gets her karate blackbelt, to fulfill her husband's dying wish.... that she get her blackbelt. I thought that was made clear in the first sentence, but you're still reading so apparently not.

On this day in history: 

1944: Field Marshall Erwin Rommel suicides. He was implicated in an anti-Hitler plot, and given the choice of suicide or humiliating trial and execution. Hitler always liked him.

Heroes 3.05

For those of you who were thinking about abandoning this show, I hope tonight's episode was a good enough reason to stick around. All of the action took place in the present day, which makes things so much easier to follow. For those of you who need a recap, here is what happened in tonight's episode, entitled "Angels and Monsters" :

Let the Right One In opens October 24th

I am obsessed with this film. I need to see it. Luckily "Let the Right One In" opens October 24th as part of the ever so wonderful 6 Shooter Film Series.

Take a look at the trailer. Oh, and this one gives much more away than previous teasers.
