Did you miss Sunday night's epic livesteram of awesomeness? If so, then you weren't able to bask in the calming glow of Schnaars' baby nursery, or the majestic manliness of CC's husband. If you missed it, we highly recommend you fire up "Contracted" on Netflix now, grab a drink, visit that Youtube link and prepare to be violated.
We recently sat down with Don Thacker, director of the indie film Motivational Growth, to see where the inspiration from the twisted film came from.
In Motivational Growth, Ian Foliver (Adrian DiGiovanni), a depressed and reclusive man in his 30s, finds himself taking advice from a growth in his bathroom after a failed suicide attempt. The Mold (‘ReAnimator’ star Jeffrey Combs), a smooth talking fungus born of the filth in a neglected bathroom, works to help Ian clean himself up and remodel his lifestyle. The Mold has big plans for Ian, but they may not be as innocent as they seem. A labyrinthine-narrative follows, full of colorfully-drawn characters and gruesome body horror. “The Mold knows, Jack. The Mold knows.”
Horror sites were beside themselves yesterday at the news that Italian horror director Dario Argento had started an Indiegogo campaign, and is asking the horror fans of the world for money to create his latest "masterpiece".

Mikey Roe hosts Feed The Beast on the Travel Channel, and can be seen starting October 10th in The Houses October Built, a new found footage film from director Bobby Roe.
Beneath the fake blood and cheap masks of countless haunted house attractions across the country, there are whispers of truly terrifying alternatives. Looking to find an authentic, blood-curdling good fright for Halloween, five friends set off on a road trip in an RV to track down these underground Haunts. Just when their search seems to reach a dead end, strange and disturbing things start happening and it becomes clear that the Haunt has come to them…
Tommy Wirkola has brought an awful lot of mayhem to the big screen in his short career. After his breakout hit "Dead Snow" he hit US shores with "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters". Now, he's back with a more Westernized version of his first film with "Dead Snow 2", about to be released in the US. Here's what he had to say recently when we sat down with him.
At what point does a successful formula stop being successful? That's the question begged by Annabelle, the fourth film from what for the purposes of this review we'll call "The Wan-iverse", a string of loosely tied together supernatural films directed or produced by James Wan of Saw fame.
