For awhile, the only way to get our Hi-Def Hammer Horror fix was through Synapse Films (their BDs of VAMPIRE CIRCUS, TWINS OF EVIL, and HANDS OF THE RIPPER are essential), or importing from over the pond.

With the resurgence of anthology style horror films and the shrinking attention spans of today’s modern audience, short films are starting to become the future of filmmaking.  Shortened lengths makes films easier to share amongst friends and if someone doesn’t like the flick, they’ve only wasted a handful of minutes instead of two hours.  Director […]
