"All Through The House" - A film by Todd Nunes


A Christmas obsessed neighborhood is engulfed with fear when five-year-old Jamie mysteriously vanishes from inside her home never to be seen again. The missing child's house, once a winter wonderland during the season, goes dark as Jamie's mother; Mrs. Garrett becomes a depressed recluse.

The neighborhood children, mesmerized by the haunted story, trade scary bedtime rumors of the missing child that eventually turn into a kind of innocuous folklore.

FIFTEEN YEARS LATER - Rachel Kimmel, a 22 year old college student, comes home for Christmas. Her haunted childhood memories of the missing lonely little girl bring her face to face with Mrs. Garrett.

At the same time, the neighborhood is experiencing some yuletide horror as a wrathful Santa killer stalks the Christmas decorated neighborhood. The brutal and faceless killer leaves a trail of slaughtered bodies to the front steps of the Garrett house.



Rachel soon finds herself in a horrifying nightmare as she is left alone to unveil the madness behind the mask. The unbelievable and twisted revelation of the killer sends Rachel into shock as she discovers her own sick connection with the Garrett family household..


A creepy old lady..... that says creepy fucking things...  Add a mysterious masked santa and you have a fucking bad ass slasher flick! - Tom H.

Tom H's Thoughts on the Campaign!

After watching the trailer to this film, I can see that they have put some originality into the way this film is being shot; this is one of those films that definitely stem from reality and bring out the fear in their target audience! Young ladies that want to be models BEWARE! This might make you change your mind! 


With that being said, this may not be an original concept however the Direction this film will go and just how terrifying they will make this film is going to be worth while! Please go to their campaign and help support them in any way you can!

“I’m so excited to share this fun little tease from my feature MANIA. This is one

An apocalyptic-themed horror short with an unexpected twist.


What is it about?

But their safe haven turns into a death trap when they encounter Nicoleta—a renegade female vampire that has also taken refuge in the house.


What could possibly go wrong there?

I have had the pleasure of reviewing Dean R. Whitney’s film “Ghostline” and I found it to be fucking awesome and one of the better films that I have seen in 2014, and I have watched a lot of films in 2014! This spin on the Zombie Apocalypse makes me want to see more!

Review: "The Other Side" - ZOMBIE FILM WITH A KICK ASS IDENTITY!

ZOMBIE FLICK “THE OTHER SIDE” CHANGES THE GENRE!!!



I was sent this awesome Zombie Film a little while back and I finally had a chance to watch it! “The Other Side” was pretty fucking awesome once you get into it; it took a few minutes to figure out exactly what is going on, literally only a few minutes and then the action starts and don’t stop until the end credits! Chris Niespodzianski and Ray Mongelli do an amazing job putting together a zombie film that has its identity!!

The twist at the end was worth it; I really did not see it coming and it created a dynamic that I wasn’t expecting as well as set up for maybe a sequel. The only negative that I could find with this film was the fact that we were not really informed of how it all come about. While I don’t care so much about that, I do know other people who do care about that and it could be the only thing hold this film back.


I have reviewed a lot of films in the last few years and this one has made my list of top films so far that I have reviewed all time! When I do that list I will make sure to mention this film! I also handed out all of the cards that was sent to me and told everyone about this film!! I hope to bring this film a following it so greatly deserves!
