Scooby Doo Gets Dark in Saturday Morning Massacre

Let's be honest... most horror lovers probably started out with our asses planted in front of the TV on a Saturday morning watching Scooby Doo and the gang solve one mystery after another. And since we're being honest we should all just go ahead and admit that we STILL love Scooby Doo. It actually does my old heart good to see that the cartoons I grew up with are now being enjoyed by my kiddos.

Film makers have been struggling for years to come up with new concepts and ideas. There's been tons of horror films that play off of one fairy tale or another and I'm sure if I think hard enough I'll come up with one that's based of a cartoon but it's still early and I haven't had enough coffee yet so I'll just leave you with this upcoming Indie film from director Spencer Parsons.


The film stars Ashley Spillers, Josephine Decker, Jonny Mars, Adam Tate and Paul Gordon.

In Saturday Morning Massacre, a team of amateur paranormal investigators struggle to make ends meet by debunking reports of supernatural incidents. With the group on the verge of bankruptcy, Nancy takes on a case involving rumors of suspicious disappearances and violent deaths linked with the abandoned Kyser schoolhouse. Discounting rumors of satanic practices the team proceeds, desperately chasing cash and the opportunity to encounter their lives’ work – to catch a real ghost.

On a tour guided by the local sheriff, the team learns of the schoolhouse’s gruesome past. Despite his advice to spend the night in a hotel, the team decides to stay; they set up their gear and prepare for nightfall. When the sun goes down, the truth comes out: the Kyser house isn’t haunted – it’s inhabited by a sadistic feral family with an insatiable appetite for torture.

Saturday Morning Massacre is a bloody parody of mystery cartoons and the consequences of meddling with the supernatural.
