The shadow had its own mind, and that mind had an appetite. Pausing on the verge of sunlit grass, the darkness drooled like a hungry tiger at bare gleaming flesh in shorts or skirts, slip-on sandals. It cared nothing for style and beauty, only of filling murky hollow depths. And so it crept to feed upon the audience packed before an outdoor stage. Young smiling women didn’t notice the shady licks tasting ankles. Their expressions altered when umbral teeth sank into the meat of calves. A chorus of screams blended with raucous Metal notes and cheers. Fans to the end.

A new neighbor next door. Need to go introduce myself. Bring a small gift.
Holding a pretty fruit basket, I knocked. Suddenly remembered that my cat, Kitty, was outside. I’ll get him on the way home.
Opening the door with eyes cold and glassy looking. Immediately brightening with a smile.
A nice lady. Talked my head off.
But she sure didn’t like men none. Filthy creatures they were.
Don’t leave yet. I’ll get you a tasty bit from my oven. She carried a delightfully smelling dish.
You did tell me you had a male cat, right?
Film Festival Hit
Available Now on DVD
New York, NY – Wild Eye Releasing has announced that Mike Davis’ President Wolfman is now available to own on DVD following a wildly successful festival run. Since its premiere at the Sydney Underground Film Festival, President Wolfman has been a favorite of audiences and critics alike, with the Huffington Post applauding the filmmakers for delivering “a candidate both parties can get behind.” President Wolfman has won awards around the country, taking home Best Script at the New Orleans Horror Film Festival and Best Feature at both the Aliens to Zombies Film Festival and Atlanta Horror Film Festival.
Meet John Wolfman: politician, single parent and werewolf, a man whose (hairy) hands are definitely full. Not only is he trying to stop his opponents from selling the US to China, he also has to solve a series of grizzly murders in the capitol. Add a crazed mad scientist, Smokey the Bear, a Miss Teen beauty pageant and a race against time to save his eight-year-old son Bobby from a murderous Vice President, and you have a movie that will keep you howling from start to finish.
Hailed as “perfect for fans of campy horror” by The Washington Post, President Wolfman was made entirely from recycled, stock and public domain footage with a newly scripted, scored and re-voiced soundtrack with enhanced visuals and effects.
The DVD release of President Wolfman (SRP $14.95) exclusively includes several short films from director Mike Davis, outtakes, a music video and a highlight reel of the production.

We tried crop after crop until attempting pumpkins. It was a disaster! Their tendrils and leaves, the first fragile blossoms, turned to mush and stank worse than rotted eggs.
What with Halloween being a mere four months away, and our farm subsidy about to end, we called in a much-needed consultant. She checked our soil and water supply before finalizing her report.
I paid her exorbitant bill with gratitude, determined to save our farm.
I walked her to the door, leaving my husband in the living room. She pressed a packet into my hands, whispered, “You know what to do.”

In June the film “CRAWL OR DIE” was released in Japan under the title “ALIEN CRAWL.” It was quickly labeled by critics as “The most CLAUSTROPHOBIC movie ever made!”
This month Uncork’d Entertainment and Vertical Entertainment have released CRAWL OR DIE in the USA and CANADA and viewers can decide if JAPAN was correct.
Plot: Earth as we know it is gone. A virus has destroyed the planet and rendered all its women infertile, all but one. An elite team of soldiers are tasked with bringing the woman to safety on the newly habitable Earth Two. But when they are forced underground they find themselves fighting for survival from an bloodthirsty creature in a maze of ever shrinking tunnels. As the team’s ranks start to dwindle, the tunnels shrink and the ammunition run out, the crawl for survival becomes more and more desperate.
CRAWL OR DIE is a full length feature film written and directed by Oklahoma Ward. The movie stars Nicole Alonso, Torey Byrne, Tom Chamberlain, David P. Baker, Wil Crown, Tommy Ball, Clayton Burgess.
