New novel ‘Darkened Wings Flutter’ from horror author Lou Yardley

April 3, 2020 in Book News, News

Darkened Wings Flutter is the latest bloody novel from horror and fantasy author Lou Yardley, whose previous books include the award nominated werewolf themed Hellhound and demonic horror The Deal Maker.

“The end is nigh when darkened wings flutter…”

The small town of Crow’s Foot Hollow is thrown into turmoil when a local boy called Dwayne goes missing. For teacher Beth Harwood, it soon becomes clear that the nearby forest is connected to his disappearance. Clouded in mystery, scary stories, and haunting nursery rhymes, that forest seems like just the kind of place to swallow a young boy whole.

But the forest isn’t the only thing you have to worry about in Crow’s Foot Hollow. Sometimes the dangers are much closer to home. Chuck Graves lives next door to a family with their share of problems – a couple that always argues, a little girl called Imogen who creeps the hell out of everyone – but they appear to be held together by little Ryan who keeps on smiling regardless of what’s going on. Everything appears normal, but Chuck can’t help but wonder what’s going on behind closed doors.

Crawling with monsters big and small, “Darkened Wings Flutter” wants to get under your skin.

Lou Yardley had the following to say about the book: 

“I love monsters… and I also love creepy crawlies, so ‘Darkened Wings Flutter’ has provided me with a fantastic opportunity to combine those things. 

The story is one filled with destiny, blood, moths, and a bit of dismemberment.”

Digital copies of Darkened Wings Flutter are available to buy here https://geni.us/buydwf or you can purchase direct form Lou Yardley’s store at https://louyardley.bigcartel.com

Horror Community Comes Together Over COVID-19

April 1, 2020 in News

A lot of heart can be found coming from creators in the horror genre during the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to provide an escape for those who are facing stress and anxiety during this time.

Members of the online horror community, Slasher, are working to help fans, as well as others who may be interested in entertainment from within the genre. The creator of the Slasher app, Damon Della Greca, has assembled a network of content creators from the horror community, in order to create a list of related content for people to enjoy, such as: movies, books, podcasts, music, and more. This is a cooperative effort with all involved sharing the list of “50+ Things for Horror Fans to Do During a Pandemic” across social media and websites on the internet.

The goal is to help alleviate some of the stress, anxiety, or depression for those who have been affected, possibly with no income right now. These resources can provide days of entertainment as a welcome distraction, in order to offer a bit of relief. The list will continue to grow.

“This is a difficult time for a tremendous number of people. I see many who have lost their jobs and have no money coming in. The most people can do is wait until all businesses can reopen. I understand the kind of pressure that puts on a person. We’re all in this together. Some of us have various things to offer as a form of relief. Even if it’s a podcast or movie as a way to take people’s minds off of things for a little while, it can make a difference.”, said Damon Della Greca.

Why Don’t You Just Die! Heads to the States

March 26, 2020 in Movie News, News

Kirill Sokolov’s Why Don’t You Just Die! Heads to the States
Arrow Video Invites Audiences to Meet (and Kill) the Parents
Brutal Action Comedy Available Nationwide on Digital HD April 20
Debuts on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google PlayApril 10th Theatrical Scrapped due to COVID-19
“A splatterpunk action comedy… gleefully dark”–Hollywood Reporter
“A smartly constructed and blisteringly paced bit of chaos”–Screen Anarchy

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that has ground daily life to a halt around the globe, Arrow Video is proud to announce the US release of Why Don’t You Just Die!, a blood-soaked black comedy in the vein of Quentin Tarantino and Edgar Wright.  Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour.  Why Don’t You Just Die! will be available nationwide on Digital HD April 20th.
Why Don’t You Just Die! has received critical acclaim from festivals around the globe, taking home the New Flesh Award for Best First Feature and Silver Audience Award at Fantasia, Best European Feature Film at MOTELx, Best Director at Fantaspoa, Best Feature, Best Director and Best VFX Awards at Grimmfest.  Following a screening at Fantastic Fest, Film School Rejects raved that

Ahead of the release, Sokolov shared, “Despite our exaggerated use of genre tropes and all the flashy effects, Why Don’t You Just Die! remains, for me, an incredibly personal and sincere story. The film’s inherent violence is the result of reflection on the realities of life in Russia, modern relationships, and societal attitudes. The gallows humor which pervades the film is the only true reaction whatsoever to all of this. The film is intended as an emotional rollercoaster, making the audience laugh, cry, and laugh again – but then immediately feel a sense of unease for having laughed.”

Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend’s parents’ apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honour. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey’s attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don’t quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable – not to mention ruthless – opponent than he anticipated… and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.
