MUCK Scares Off Heavyweight Competition!!

 
Paramount Pictures isn't going to compete with MUCK for horror fans bucks this Friday the 13th, March 2015. The studio just announced that they are moving the release of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension back some several months.

The gods of horror smiled upon the MUCK franchise when the perfect release date of Friday the 13th, March 2015 was set. The date is significant not only because MUCK stars Kane Hodder, known for his iconic role as Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th film franchise, but also because the horrific events of MUCK take place entirely on St. Patrick's Day, yielding the perfect storm in the month of March for MUCK.

MUCK director Steve Wolsh "wasn't afraid" when Paramount announced that the 6th entry of the Paranormal series would open against his film. Now, many months later, we find out that it won't. Why does the Paranormal franchise suddenly have cold feet? MUCK may have simply scared them off. With a successful MUCK: Kickstarter campaign having recently funded the MUCK prequel, MUCK pre-orders piling up, and an upcoming premiere at the Playboy Mansion, one can't deny all the positive buzz surrounding MUCK. Has David spooked Goliath?

FROM OUR SPONSORS: Howlin' Wolf Records Releases "SHOCK WAVES and "THE TOY SOLDIERS"...

Shock Waves [1977]: proved to be a film of several firsts. It was the first of the "Nazi zombie" films which has entered and stayed in the pop-culture mainstream, firmly establishing itself as a fan favorite since its premiere. It opened up the territory for other Nazi zombie pictures , including Zombie Lake (1981), The Treasure of the Living Dead (1982, also known as Oasis of the Zombies), Hard Rock Zombies (1985), Horrors of War (2006, aka Zombies of War), Outpost (2008) and Dead Snow (2009), not to forget the highly-popular manga and its spin-off anime, Hellsing (1997-2009).

First feature for director Ken Wiederhorn, as well as composer Richard Einhorn. Wiederhorn's thesis film at Columbia University, Manhattan Melody (1973), had previously won the Student Academy Award for Best Dramatic Film in its inaugural year. Shot on a shoestring budget, with the gracious participation of two film heavyweights in Peter Cushing and John Carradine, It proved that one didn't over-the-top effects or technical perfection to create a movie of chilling psychological horror.   
  

The Toy Soldiers [2014]: Written/Directed by Erik Peter Carlson   Starring Constance Brenneman, Chandler Rylko, Najarra Townsend, Jeanette May, Nick Frangione, Samuel Nolan, Thatcher Robinson, Megan Hensley, Andre Myers, Izzy Pollak, Kevin Pinassi and Amelia Haberman.

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquility with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual.There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, The Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time.

Just Announced! For more information on these two releases, please visit "HOWLIN' WOLF RECORDS".  One is a classic horror film "SHOCK WAVES" released in 1977 and the other is "THE TOY SOLDIERS" a current film.

HBA Members Happy Holidays and Good-bye!


I am not sure how many of you might celebrate the coming holiday or the end of the year, but I hope you spend it with family and friends. I have made many friends here over the last few years and found some awesome blog sites too. We all started blogging for different reasons and most of us here are some kind of fans to HORROR, it's been a great pleasure. Over the last year or so I have seen a steady decrease in people wanting to join the HBA or sites that have started and then stopped in a shorter amount of time. Time being the key word here, we struggle with the time issue as we maintain our sites. 

So where do we go from here, what should happen next... who cares?
I won't be updating this site until next year, some changes are always coming and I wanted to thank those who visit here. You are all the best, be the best and will be welcome here. THANK YOU!

Don't just give a Muck, give to Muck!

 
MUCK Kickstarter Passes $225,000 in Pledges!
 
Anchor Bay Entertainment has unveiled the first Official Theatrical Trailer for MUCK, as well as new exclusive poster art (attached). Horror and gore fans alike should feast their eyes on this freshest take yet on the MUCK trailer, viewable on the main page of the Muck Kickstarter: bit.ly/MuckKickstarter.

Speaking of Feast, the MUCK Kickstarter campaign to fund the prequel, MUCK: Feast of Saint Patrick, is still under way, and recently surpassed the $200,000 mark on the way to the goal of raising a quarter of a million dollars. Just like the original, the MUCK prequel will boast death-defying stunts and practical effects, shot without the use of CGI – all in 4K Ultra HD.

As a production company, WithAnO wanted to give fans and Kickstarter backers alike an insight into what they’re supporting, and so recently released this exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage of one of MUCK’s incredible stunts: http://youtu.be/VzU2RZettks.

The daring stunt-woman in this case is Alexa Marcigliano, and her courage is palpable in the clip, sprinting O.S. through the pitch-black living room before bouncing on a trampoline, then hurling herself through the 4 x 6 picture window, out into the night. To say that hitting her mark was highly important is obviously an understatement. Jump too short, and Alexa would land head-first on the edge of the porch outside; too high, and she would hit window frame; too long, and she would overshoot the padding buried beneath the grass outside. And, since there was only room in the budget for one window, it had to be done in a single take.

These are the kinds of stunts that Steve Wolsh lives to shoot as a writer/director, but these kinds of stunts take time, money, and not least of all, the ultimate creative control that can only be afforded by independent financing. So remember, any mention or write-up on the Muck Kickstarter campaign directly furthers our goal of making another epic, independent horror film for true horror fans. The MUCK franchise is so close to this goal – a goal that at one time seemed insurmountable! – and we have all of you, our loyal supporters to thank.

MUCK stars horror legend Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th Part VII, VIII, Jason Goes to Hell, and Jason X), Lachlan Buchanan (Pretty Little Liars), and Bryce Draper (Bound), and co-stars 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jaclyn Swedberg, Puja Mohindra, and Laura Jacobs. The middle chapter of an independently financed horror trilogy, MUCK will be unleashed in theaters on Friday the 13th, March 2015.

Give a little, give a lot... it's almost there and it's one Hell of a Movie!

Sponsors "Howlin' Wolf Records": Ulli Lommel is in negotiations for shooting THE BOOGEYMAN TV-SERIES!

  ------------------------------------
Ulli Lommel is in negotiations for shooting THE BOOGEYMAN TV-SERIES starting to film in Los Angeles and Alberta, Canada in July 2015 with an initial 26 one-hour episodes. Budget for the series is an estimated $4 million per episode. Lommel owns the BOOGEYMAN FRANCHISE since 1980, when he wrote, produced and directed a cult sensation grossing over $35 million world-wide on a budget of only $300,000. In 2005, Sam Raimi executive produced the remake which became a No. 1 Box-Office hit with over $150 million in revenues.

As to the story of the TV-Series, Lommel goes back to the year 1861, when the spirit of THE BOOGEYMAN was born, after a lynch mob killed an innocent native American from the Apache tribe. The bible for the TV-Series was written by Colin McCracken, Ulli Lommel and David Bond. Frank Dragun, Omar Kaczmarczyk and David Bond are slated as producers with Peter Davis (HIGHLANDER) as Executive Producer.

Howlin' Wolf Records, who recently released the restored soundtrack of the 1980 cult classic,  has been retained to oversee the production of the music for the BOOGEYMAN TV-SERIES. A Multi-media blitz including merchandising of THE BOOGEYMAN creature, a video game and a graphic novel will accompany the series.
