Happy Halloween From Fearmakers

This has to be our most favorite time of the year. It's the season that shaped us as kids and turned us into the scary movie making madmen that we are now. From watching Double Chiller Theater with Fritz the Night Owl to hiding behind the door to literally scare the shit out of our mothers, for us there was no better time than Halloween.

Now we're all grown up in body, but the mind and spirit still plays like a kid in a candy store every time the holiday approaches. So whether you're getting dressed up like a bloody psycho or a sexy nymph (hopefully for a party) or curling up with a loved one to watch a scary movie *cough* Dismal *cough*, the team at Fearmakers hopes you have a terrific Halloween.

Kicking Ass and Taking Names

Don't let the innocent eyes fool you. This girl will kick your ass. Meet Christina Rose, star of Strange Stuff Productions' upcoming zombie flick, Death of the Dead. Christina plays Wanda, the awkward geek turned zombie-butt-smashing-bombshell with the help of a little magic.

Production is about to kick off and the cast includes model Alex Del Monacco and scream queen Debbie Rochon. We'll keep you posted on all the brain eating details right here and maybe even sneak a picture or two in.

Make sure you tune it tomorrow to see Lisa Wilcox from our upcoming creature feature, Savage, in a new show called "Fear Clinic" on FEARnet. The show also stars her Freddy Kreuger co-star Robert Englund. Should be a good one!

It's Showtime®, Baby!

Fearmakers just received word from our agent that Dismal has sold to Showtime®! No word on when it will be airing or whether it will list on the main channel or one of the sub channels a al Showtime Extreme, but either way, it's good news for us.

For all our fans looking for the DVD, here's the update. We have struck a deal with Comcast to have it play On Demand. Our agent is waiting on the dates and as soon as we get them we'll pass them along. Agents are notoriously bad at delivering information so don't be surprised if we get the info second hand from a fan with Comcast rather than our agent. Also, the Time Warner On Demand deal has expired, however, our agent is looking to renew an On Demand deal with TWC. Our only assumption is that the On Demand has done well which is why then want to renew the title.

Bad news is, everyone waiting for the elusive DVD release might have to wait a little longer. The good GOOD news is, if Dismal does well in the domestic and foreign markets, it mean Fearmakers might just be around a little longer to make more movies. I like the sound of that.

Dismal at AFM

This is our first move for world domination. AFM (American Film Market) is one of the largest market and brings international buyers from all over the world to peruse the mounds of screeners and select a chosen few to take to their audience back home. Dismal will be well represented with a screening, listing in the official AFM program and plenty of screeners and swag to hand out. Our goal is to be available to everyone in the world. "You got Dale's word on that!"

SAVAGE in Fango

The industry leading magazine Fangoria did a piece on Savage for their website. It was a really cool piece with exclusive photos and comments from the producers and cast. Unfortunately they misspelled producer Justin Soponis' name wrong, but we'll forgive them. Bigfoot may not, but Fearmakers will.

SAVAGE Premiere at Horrorfind

(Fans gather around to meet the cast of Savage and watch the trailer)
Lines forming almost an hour before showtime. Standing room only. Filled to capacity. Many people had to be turned away, disappointed that they were going to miss the premiere screening of our latest film Savage. Cast and crew were on hand for the premiere, including Martin Kove, Lisa Wilcox, Jack Harrison and Tony Becker who plays hero ranger Owen in the film.

The screening was a success. Many horror fans coming up to us afterward complimenting us on the movie, asking "how'd you do that?" and telling us their favorite part. One fan even told us it was the best Bigfoot movie he'd ever seen and he'd "seen them all". Pretty nice compliment considering the company our movie is in.
(Tony Becker talks with fans of Savage)
We also had a reprise of Dismal fans, unveiled our Strange Stuff label, reunited with cast of Death4Told, Margot Kidder and Tom Savini, and previewed our upcoming feature Lance Steel with great response and enthusiasm. We will be bringing the Lance preview to everyone in the near future.

In all, another successful representation for Fearmakers at Horrorfind Weekend. We hope to keep making the movies and bringing them back to our growing fan base at Horrorfind.
