Donate to "North Woods" film! 16 Days Left!


I am writing this entry in an attempt to help an individual that has inspired me with his strength and no quit attitude! Jason Kasper, the executive producer and co-writer of the film “North Woods” has been in contact with me for quite some time giving me updates on the film as well as the indiegogo campaign they have created in order to get some of the funds needed to get this film created!

We have had conversations that have made me realize just how much passion the people in this community bring to the projects that they love, I am honored to have had the chance to speak with Jason Kasper because he not only showed me the reason I love Independent films he also showed me that adversity brings out the best in us.


Can we please support this film by donating as much as we can! Every dollar helps and it will not hurt to help a fellow member of the Indie Horror community live his dream and help them create a film that they have been working very hard on!

State of Desolation by Jim Towns!


After running across the film “State of Desolation” I went through the production stills and I found myself really intrigued! I love post-apocalyptic films and this gives me something to look forward to. "State of Desolation" casts Jamie Bernadette (Son of Sam - 2008) and Dominique Swain (Face/Off - 1997) both very talented actresses which is a huge bonus for this film!! I am going to keep checking up on this film so I can post updates and the trailer when it is available!

I am posting a ton of stills from the facebook page and again I will continue with updates and potentially some interviews as this film becomes available!

Goodnight Terrifies in "See No Evil 2"! The Tom H. Review!!

TOM H. REVIEWS
SEE NO EVIL 2


The Soska Twins did it again! Another epic film !!! “See No Evil 2” surpasses the first one by a long shot. You really get to see the struggle that Jacob Goodnight is going through! The cast was amazing; and I mean the ENTIRE CAST! Danielle Harris is continuing her legacy as being one of Horror Films most prolific leading ladies.

After seeing all of the films that Jen and Sylvia  have made; this one hands down solidifies their ability as being among the best in the Genre! “See No Evil 2” didn’t waste any time! The film picked up where the first film left off and in almost a Jason Voorhees/Michael Myers type set up bring Jacob Goodnight back to life! Now, never have I seen anyone get ballsy enough to kiss Jason or Michael while lying on a slab in the morgue before! So that whole scenario you knew was going get ugly fast!!! Thank you Katharine Isabelle!!

The Twisted Twins did not disappoint with this film and by the end of this film they do what we all love with Slashers.. They left that mother fucker open ended so we can see ANOTHER installment of See No Evil in the future! Jacob Goodnight could become one of the very few icons in the past 2 decades of horror film!


As I say in all my reviews; please support Indie Horror by purchasing a copy of “See No Evil 2” and help Jen and Sylvia continue to make fucking awesome films for all of us to enjoy. 


What lies behind the door? Tom H. Reviews Patrick McBrearty's "The Door"!

What LIES BEHIND THE DOOR???
WARNING SPOILERS!

I watched Patrick McBrearty’s “The Door”  about a week ago and I think this film was really awesome! Yes, that is a really lame ass response and I probably could think of a lot better ways to describe this film and I will as I continue writing.

“The Door”  is a film based on mystery and suspense; what would you do if you met a guy about a job and were told all you had to do is watch a door?  No reason, no details about what is behind the door.. I know I would want to know what the hell is behind the door! Well this guy Owen is told to do just that; he obviously is intrigued but he resists; that is until his stupid friends show up.

As you can guess; someone opens the door and the games begin! While it is a little hard to really know what’s going on; you still have to applaud how the film shapes and builds towards the ending. Now, I wasn’t really expecting what happens at the end and I thought it was pretty badass!! The psychology behind this film was pretty intense and I plan on having this film screened at one of my events in the future!

Patrick McBrearty does capture the reactions of the cast well and the suspense was on point. I was really on the edge of my seat at times waiting for what was about to happen next. This film is on par with any movie big budget film and delivers a lot more than most! Great job and keep bringing us these amazing films!

Directed by Patrick McBrearty
Starring  Winny Clarke, Liv CollinsAlys Crocker

Demand "Crawl or Die" on NETFLIX!

As one of the first Blogs/sites to talk about “Crawl or Die” aka “Crawl Bitch Crawl” I am proud of what Oklahoma Ward, Nicole Alonso and the rest of the crew have been able to accomplish! This has been one of the films I have been waiting to see for quite some time.

I have seen “Crawl or Die” available in different locations such as Amazon.com and Walmart.com; the one thing I feel will put this film over the top is having the opportunity to be able to be seen on Netflix!

I know several people that have films on Netflix that I have had an opportunity to watch; even though I watched the films before they were on Netflix; it allowed me to talk about the films and share them with friends.

Please like the DEMAND CRAWL OR DIE ON NETFLIX facebook page to help continue the growth for this film! Great people making awesome movies and I am going to purchase my own copy this week!!



Mancrates.com Challenge! What would I need to survive a Horror Film?

So I’m a man and I love horror films and I probably could live just long enough to see the end credits of most horror films only to die during the end credits.. My ability to survive would only be in question when it comes to two things:

1.  Dealing with anything I can’t see or touch.

2.  If I was dealing with something that absolutely could not die.


I have to come up with a list of items I would want in my MANCRATE! Yes, a mancrate, I was asked to write this post by Alexandra from mancrates.com. Mancrates.com is a site that you can buy personalized gifts for men; not just any typical gift.. You can purchase gifts MEN actually enjoy! An example of a crate you could buy would be the Grill Master Crate! It's an awesome gift!


Anyway, I have to come up with items I would absolutely need to survive a horror film, what type of horror film will I choose? I could do a zombie flick but that seems to get used way too much and I am tired of hearing everyone claim they are preparing for the zombie apocalypse; except for my girlfriend, she can say that stuff all she wants because she is hot and I love her!

I figure it would be more fun to be part of a Slasher film! My Slasher film will not be about some guy who can never die; that’s just stupid and the only people who can get away with that are the film makers of the 80’s and 90’s where there were actual Slasher Icons like Freddy, Jason and Michael! Mine would be more like Scream. No, I truly hated Scream however a realistic villain has me more interested.

I am not sure how big this crate is exactly so I’ll just guess…

Item #1: Pack of BIC Lighters to set shit on fire! I mean hell if you are able to start a fire then neighbors call the fire department and the police show up with ambulances etc.. Look at any fire response unit in your town! Plus a lighter can light a torch or whatever if you’re in a position to where you are in need of one.

Item #2: The GLOCK 17 so I could shoot the bastard! If the guy is real he will die pretty fast then I don’t have to have a long drawn out movie where in the end the killer is revealed to be some stupid douchebag that had mommy issues..

Item #3: Ghillie Suit so I can hide in the forest or wooded area, how many times have you seen some stupid ass person running from the axe wielding asshole only to try to hide behind a tree? They DIE! How about having a Ghillie Suit on hand that you can put on and hide from the scary ass dude trying to kill you so you can have the jump on him? Bet you will never see that in a Horror movie!

Item #4: Duct Tape because all of you should have some of this shit laying around, it will  help you in a pinch especially if you get lucky enough to put the killer in a position to where you can duct tape him to a chair. Once you duct tape that crazy fucker to a chair you can torture the shit out of him just like he would have done you if you were an idiot and made enough mistakes to be captured.

Item #5: Satellite Phone because house phones are always dead and cell phones somehow never have a damn signal! A Satellite phone will guarantee your ass can call someone no matter where you are at in this world!

Finally I would probably have an assortment of other tools to utilize in case I’m dealing with a Vampire, Werewolf or some other random monster/creature/person/thing.. Wooden stake, Silver bullets for the Glock, Holy water and a Bible..



That would conclude my mancrate; if you feel I have missed anything and/or you would like to tell me what you would put in your crate to survive a horror film please reply in the comments below or on my facebook post!!

A NIGHTMARE AFTER DARK - AFTERMATH!


On October 18th, Tom H's Blog of Horror Co-Hosted along with Matt Wagner the owner of After Dark the event called A NIGHTMARE AFTER DARK! 

We screened the film "Nailbiter", a film Directed by Patrick Rea. Everyone that had the chance to watch the film seemed to really like it. 

In 2015 Tom H's Blog of Horror will continue to grow and the way I support Indie Horror Film will also grow! I appreciate the support from all of the people who have had my back even if they couldn't be part of the actual events!! 

I continue to meet new people that have heard about the events I have tried to put together and word of mouth is a good thing; eventually I hope to be able to put together a festival that will be a routine stop for Indie Horror Film Makers to show their films annually!!

Review of "Sacrament" by Shawn Ewert - Sinners 4 Dinner!

                       TOM H.
 REVIEWS SACRAMENT
My review of Sacrament was exciting! Shawn Ewert was one of the first filmmakers that I had a chance to add as a friend when I began Tom H’s Blog of Horror; I have been waiting for about a year or so to have a chance to watch this film!

Sacrament didn’t waste time getting down to it! Religion in the wrong hands can lead to the worst types of evil.. Sacrament shows just how people can do these sick and twisted things right under the nose of the world.. I loved the film because the flow of the film was continuously moving forward and the story didn’t stagnate at all. Shawn Ewert delivered one of the best indie horror films I have had the chance to watch!

I enjoy films that are based on reality and can actually happen! The very thought that I could end up in a town that is corrupt and brainwashed at that level scares my ass and I don’t get scared about too much. Shawn Ewert you are the man! The cast did an amazing job and I look forward to sharing this film with the people of the Midwest!!
