monsterworldPre-production on Dread Central’s new anthology Monsterworld has officially begun.

Survivors across the world struggle to overcome horrifying circumstances during a monster apocalypse.

Monsterworld (tentatively titled; subject to change) will be another anthology of blood, guts, and mayhem brought to life by a group of exciting new directors from around the world. “Monsterworld is such a great opportunity to dive into the mind of visionary genre filmmakers,” says Ruthless Pictures’ Jesse Baget. “I know they will not limit themselves to the expected. A ferocious toothbrush, a carnivorous toenail… hey, with Monsterworld anything goes. I’m definitely ready to be blown away by the monster madness our contestants will be cooking up.

Dread Central has always been incredibly indie film-friendly so here’s what’s on tap for you guys: Monsterworld already has WORLDWIDE distribution from one of the horror genre’s finest purveyors so we can guarantee that no matter what, you’re gonna get the exposure and notoriety that you deserve.
