As we’ve mentioned on the past few Splattercasts, we are very busy preparing for our new monthly web series. We have no name decided for the overall project yet (13 Drops of Blood was going to be it until we found out it’s a book) but we do know what the first four stories are going to be. We’ll release one 5-7 minute story per month and ultimately put all of them together for a DVD release. Without further ado, here they are with brief non-spoiler descriptions.
DEADBOLT: The framing device of the anthology. A young girl, home alone on Halloween night, is terrorized by someone knocking on her door. She thinks the boyfriend she just broke up with is behind it and locks the deadbolt. She soon realizes that ex-boyfriends are not the only things angry on Halloween night….
SLEEP TIGHT: Arriving at a hotel late at night after a long drive to a horror movie convention, two podcasters want nothing more than to get to their room and fall asleep. A fateful decision will leave one of them never looking at a hotel bed the same way again…
BAIT: Kemp has the greatest worms in the county and fisherman come from miles around to stop at his tucked away farmhouse. When Andy shows up to buy some bait, Kemp takes him to his barn to show him exactly what makes his soil the best in the county…
CONVENTION GIRL: David has a problem. He’s just staked a vampire call girl. Or at least, he thinks she is. And he will do anything to prove to his friend Justin that she is, indeed, a vampire….
So there you have it, the first four entries in our new monthly anthology series that will debut on Halloween. We’re very excited to announce that Uncle Randy of Drunken Zombie will be starring in Sleep Tight, which will film next weekend at the Days of the Dead convention.
All four stories are created, written, and revised by Tony (Professor Bleak) , Steve, and myself. And we have a whole lot more planned for next year including some shorts written by fellow podcasters and even some entries by non-DL filmmakers. And yes, we are still working on The Dark Around Your Heart. In fact, you might see our private eye in one of the anthology shorts early next year….
So yeah, we’re excited! Now you have another reason to look forward to Halloween 🙂
