“Directors Steve Balderson and Elizabeth Spear take the typical soap opera and spoof it until it bleeds profusely.”-Dread Central

Los Angeles, CA – Gravitas Ventures has announced the August 23rd Cable and Digital HD release of Steve Balderson’s festival favorite Hell Town. Presented as three episodes of a sadistic twist on Masterpiece Theater, Balderson (Firecracker, The Casserole Club) and co-director Elizabeth Spear have carved up a serialized story filled with catfights, cliffhangers, broken hearts and murder. Hell Town will be available to rent or own starting August 23rd on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, and XBox.

Since the world première sponsored by the Austin Horror Society and Alamo Drafthouse, Hell Town has made audiences and critics laugh and scream, picking up awards for Best Feature at Colorado Horror-Con, as well as a Best Feature and Best Actress win for Amanda Deibert, with nominations for Best Actor, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography, at the Crimson Scream Horror Film Festival.

Debbie Rochon (Model Hunger, Return to Nuke ‘Em High, The Theater Bizarre) headlines as the hostess of the three surviving episodes of “Hell Town”, following the melodramatic, small-town and potentially short-lived lives of Krysten Day, Amanda Deibert, Owen Lawless, Ben Windholz, Jennifer Grace and Balderson muse Pleasant Gehman.

helltown2Hell Town follows the melodramatic antics of high school seniors clashing over love, sex, and betrayal.  In the middle of all the everyday drama of one-sided infatuations, backstabbing bitchiness, bottled-up sexuality, sibling rivalry and general small-town angst, the Letter Jacket Killer is killing students in a variety of sadistic ways.  As the body count rises and the blood pools closer to home, it becomes clear that one of our main characters is the killer.  Everyone, from the prom queen and shirtless jock to the nosey geek and the super bitch, are all suspects in the carnage.

It’s “The Inbetweeners meets Shaun of the Dead” in this slick horror comedy that’s heavy on both gore and laughs. In the new film, Alex, Az and Jim head to Ibiza for their first lad’s holiday.

Soon they end up in a San Antonio club, run by local gangster Karl, where the main attractions aren’t alive… they’re dead! Thanks to Jim’s wild antics, the zombies escape and all hell breaks loose with the entire party island soon battling the undead.

Starring Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners), Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey, Overwatch, Crazy Face), Matt King (Peepshow, RocknRolla) and featuring Alex Zane.

horrorchannellogoThere are four UK TV premieres: Jim Mickle’s brilliant re-imagining of Jorge Michel Grau’s Mexican art-house cannibal fantasy WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, Greg McLean’s WOLF CREEK 2, which sees the return of Australia’s most famed pig-shooting psycho, Carlos Brooks’ wonderful ‘Tiger in a House’ nerve-jangler BURNING BRIGHT and Alastair Orr’s Panamanian creature thriller PREY. Plus, there is the network premiere of THE REEF, the scariest shark chiller since Jaws.

As well as the four UK TV Premières, Horror Channel is bringing you ‘Tropical Terror’ season this July. Take a slay-cation you’ll never forget with our collection of sun-drenched shockers featuring the aforementioned PREY and THE REEF, as well as David Twohy’s adventure thriller A PERFECT GETAWAY and James Cullen Bressack’s Thai-holiday-turned-nightmare horror PERNICIOUS.

Full details of premières in transmission order:

burningbrightSat 2 July @ 9.00pm – BURNING BRIGHT (2010) * UK TV Première

Johnny Gavenau’s latest get-quick-rich scheme is to turn his Florida ranch into a Safari Park. As the main attraction he buys a dangerous Bengal tiger from an unscrupulous circus trader. But the ravenous beast gets loose, its only refuge the ranch house interior where stepdaughter Kelly and her autistic little brother Tom reside… Nature runs amok but human nature proves to be the real villain in director Carlos Brooks’ taut twist on the home invasion chiller. Look out for a guest appearance from Meatloaf.

thereef2Fri 8 July @ 10.50pm – THE REEF (2010) *Network Première

For four old friends it seemed like a dream come true – a week cruising the world’s most beautiful coral reef on their own yacht. But when the vessel capsizes, leaving them stranded on the over-turned hull, that dream turns into a nightmare. They take to the open water – only to learn, too late, that they are being stalked by a deadly great white shark. Director Andrew Traucki’s true-life shocker puts ordinary people in an all-too believable extreme situation, where small actions become epic tragedies.

wawwahcSat 9 July @ 10.50pm – WE ARE WHAT WE ARE (2013) *UK TV Première

Following the unexpected death of their mother, teenage daughters Iris and Rose Parker are ordered by their father to carry on a macabre ancestral ritual at all costs. But when a torrential storm hits their upstate New York region, the town’s river overflows and the local authorities start uncovering long-buried clues that lead them to the Parker family’s cannibalistic secret. Stunning performances from the cast add enormous weight to Jim Mickle’s superb film craft and subtle horror nuance. Stars Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks and Kelly McGillis.

preyFri 15 July @ 10.50pm – PREY (2014) *UK TV Première

Originally released as Indigenous, Alastair Orr’s exotic horror fantasy centres on five friends who meet in Panama for a vacation. While partying, they hear a native story about a beautiful waterfall deep in the jungle. Ignoring the many warnings, they set off to find the waterfall. When they reach it, the group discovers that the stories about the mythical, blood-sucking Chupabra are not only true, but that it has now developed a taste for humans.

wolfcreekSat 16 July @ 10.50pm – WOLF CREEK 2 (2013) *UK TV Première

The gravel-voiced, sneering maniac Mick Taylor is back with a few more days to kill! Bolder. Gorier, and placed on a far bigger canvas than the original Ozploitation classic, star John Jarratt and director Greg McLean return with an even more twisted shocker. WOLF CREEK 2 maintains the original’s savagery and nerve-jangling tension, while dazzling further with a spectacular and surprising use of Down Under landscapes and creatures. Two arrogant cops, two unwitting German backpackers and a Good Samaritan British tourist become the prey for the crazed pig-shooting psycho as the outback is drenched in rivers of blood.

southbound1Southbound – On DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download from Monday 8th August, 2016.

One of the biggest highlights of FrightFest Glasgow 2016, Southbound is a twisted and shocking anthology horror from the minds behind the V/H/S trilogy.

southbounddvd2Synopsis:
On a desolate stretch of desert highway, weary travelers – two men on the run from their past, a band on their way
to the next gig, a man struggling to get home, a brother in search of his long-lost sister and a family on vacation are forced to confront their worst fears and darkest secrets in a series of five interlocking tales of terror.

Southbound brings together some of the best people working in the horror genre today, with the minds behind the
brilliantly terrifying V/H/S outdoing themselves to make it one of the best horror anthologies of recent years.

The truly great thing about Southbound is that each and every single segment is amazing in its own right. Each one
belongs to a different horror subgenre and is as gripping as the last, with fantastic performances from each member
of the cast, accentuated by astounding, scary visual effects, both CG and physical, that bely the modest budget. This is all underlined by a terrifying score by acclaimed music production and composition duo, The Gifted, which really gets under your skin.

The two common threads – all of the chapters take place on the same stretch of road and each of the characters
listens to a radio DJ voiced by genre veteran Larry Fessenden – instil a distinct sense of dread that all is not as it seems and that something incredibly nasty is lurking just below the surface. And it is – but perhaps not in the way you may initially imagine. Until the final reveal shows how and why the characters are connected, you’ll be kept guessing as to what’s really going on.

southbounddvd3Meeting rapturous acclaim at Glasgow FrightFest 2016, the film has evoked comparisons with some of the truly great anthology titles of the past such as The Twilight Zone thanks to its creepy premise, otherworldly sense of dread and its neat, twisted conceit.

Special Features: Audio Commentary with filmmakers Radio Silence (Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez, Chad Villella, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin), David Bruckner, Roxanne Benjamin, Susan Burke, and Chris Harding.

Trailer for Silently Within Your Shadow – a short film from Scott Lyus

swysSometimes when looking at horror films and trailers all day you become a little weary then a little nugget will stand out . I saw the trailer for Silently Within Your Shadow a week ago after we featured an interview with the director Scott Lyus on our popular You Tube channel UKHS FrightSight (see it here –  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sgildxb4l4) .

Anyway I thought I would share the trailer with the UKHS readers and say keep an eye out for Silently Within Your Shadow at film festivals, especially as it features the voice of a certain Mr Bill Moseley (Devil’s Rejects).

Synopsis
As their relationship grows, Lucette’s obsession for ventriloquism and her dummy Hugo starts to strain her relationship with Jace. To Lucette Hugo is more than just a dummy, he’s her best friend and represents her ambition as an artist, to her, he’s very much real. But to Jace Hugo is just a puppet, or is he?
