"We have loyal fans who we love seeing at our shows time and again," said Sirc Michaels, the producer and director of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL. "And we love having unique reasons to celebrate. Star Wars Day, special events for the release of the new EVIL DEAD and WORLD WAR Z films, and of course Halloween are all great and fun. But with the holidays upon us we have one last big date to celebrate before we're all buried under a sea of eggnog and holly and that date is Friday the 13th."
To celebrate the special day, EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL is once again gearing up to offer fans - old and new alike - a unique evening of fun and pop culture campiness that can't be found anywhere else in Las Vegas. For starters, the show offering a special $13 price for General Admission tickets - which is about a quarter of the usual ticket price. On top of that, there will be special merchandise to celebrate the event that will only be available the weekend of the 13th ranging from buttons to t-shirts to magnets and posters. And, in true Sin City style, the party is not limited to Friday the 13th. It will encompass Saturday the 14th as well.
To take advantage of the $13 ticket offer, fans need to download and present a coupon at the box office. It is only good on the performance dates of Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th, and can only be redeemed in person. Fans are encouraged to stop by the box office early on either of these days to use the special coupon.

CALL GIRL is a short film written by Eric Havens of DownRight Creepy. Sixx held a very successful Kickstarter campaign, which allowed her to work with an international cast.

CHICAGO, ILL. – Filmmaker Stuart Wahlin announced horror icon Bill Oberst Jr. is attached to Slay Utterly, both as an actor and a producer. The film, to be shot in 2014, is a modern adaptation inspired by the Villisca (Iowa) ax murders of 1912, which were also the subject of Wahlin’s 2013 documentary, The Ax Man Enigma, which built a compelling case pointing to a lone “Ax Man” being responsible for dozens of eerily-similar murders throughout the nation’s heartland during a two-year period.
Slay Utterly will be the writer-director’s second feature film. Wahlin’s first narrative feature, Hand of Glory (2012), earned the filmmaker “Best Director’ at the Prairie State Film Festival in Chicago last year, and “Best Actress” for Heather Dorff (Truth or Dare, What They Say).
Having earned over a hundred credits in a five-year period, Oberst is considered the hardest-working actor in horror, if not indie film as a whole. Among numerous awards and accolades, Oberst recently took home “Best Actor” from the Pollygrind Underground Film Festival in Las Vegas for his role in Coyote, which also won “Best Picture.”
“Bill is much more than just a horror actor,” Wahlin said of his film’s star. “He’s a tremendously-talented artist who’s going to win an Oscar someday. Though I think his fans will get what they expect from him, this a film that gives Bill a little more depth to flex his acting prowess in a very conflicted, sympathetic role.”
TC: How did you come about working on the project House of Bad?
JT: Back in college I’d had the basic idea of a story about three sisters on the run with a suitcase full of drugs they’ve stolen. Back then I was working in comics, so I originally envisioned it as a graphic novel-type narrative. As the years went by and I focused on other projects, I moved from writing and drawing comics to writing and directing films, and (what would become) House of Bad evolved with me.
TC: What is the plot of House of The Bad?
JT: Three struggling sisters- an ex-con, a stripper and a junkie- hatch a plan to steal a suitcase full of heroin from the stripper’s drug dealer boyfriend. Their plan is to lay low in their old childhood home up in the hills and wait for the heat to die down, then head south and sell the stash and retire in style south of the border. Unfortunately a lot of bad stuff happened in their old house, and the place is haunted by the ghosts of their father and mother. As the girls hunker down to wait, the house starts turning them against each other. Meanwhile the dealer is searching for them, so it becomes a question of whether they’re in more danger if they leave, or if they stay.
TC: What kind of Horror movie is this? Slasher? Supernatural? Suspense?
JT: I like to call it a Horror Heist film. The film’s a bit of a mashup between thriller and supernatural horror. It’s got a strong dramatic story, as well as a healthy shot of action gore in it, as well.
TC: Do you enjoy working in the horror genre?
JT: Absolutely. The genre has so many nuances to explore, so many different styles to embrace. I could do a dozen horror films and never repeat myself in style or story, it’s such a malleable medium.
TC: Any other projects that you are working on that you would like to share?
JT: I wrote and am producing a horror western called A Man with a Gun, starring Tony Todd, and I’m directing a supernatural detective story called 13 Girls. Both of those should be shooting in 2014. I have a zombie sitcom called The Living End I’m pitching around right now trying to find a network/channel to produce it, and there’s another project I’m developing with Sadie Katz (Sirah from House of Bad) that should be a very sexy type of ghost story.
House of Bad will be released December 3rd and is available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

Since I have reviewed all of the other Phantasm sequels I suppose I will review this boring piece of shit as well. This came out in the late 90's at a time when the horror genre had seen better days but was getting better with the releases of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. I was just getting into the Phantasm series of movies and when I heard about this one I was beyond excited because the previous installments while I really enjoyed them always left me confused as shit and this one promised to explain it all.
Continuing right were part III left off, Michael (A Michael Baldwin) has been transformed and the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) has him right were he wants him. The only thing is he does not want to kill him yet, he wants to show Michael the origin of everything. How the Tall Man came to be and the meaning of what he has been doing this whole time. Reggie (Reggie Bannister) is still hot on the case and is determined to save Michael but Michael no longer wants his help. Jodie (Bill Thornbury) is still around to show Michael things but Jodie is not what he appears to be. The end of the Phantasm series is here, what will happen to top it all off??
This movie definitely wasn't made to impress anyone. The underwhelming effects, the shitty storyline and well all the actors were getting older and their performances showed it. I did like the use of deleted footage from the original movie that was used that was actually pretty cool but that is the only comliment I am really going to give this sequel.
I was really excited for the story to finally be explained and I should have known that it would still leave me confused and saying what the fuck! From beginning to end I really hated this movie. I really wanted to like this movie and have some closure but part iv definitely leaves more questions than answers. If you are a fan of the series well then you have to see it at least once but it's really not a likeable movie and you should keep your expectations super low. Mine were way too high and I was kicking myself in the ass for spending 3.95 renting this from Blockbuster. As always, stay twisted everyone!
