The duo will team up for the second time with Ariel Rebel and her studio ThinkRebel as the studio will act as Associate Producer on the project. “Earlier this year, we teamed up with Ariel Rebel and her studio ThinkRebel to produce a short horror film. It was created for a contest hosted by the renowned Horrorbid.com. The Mask of James Henry was awarded 2nd place in the contest. We were proud but didn’t expect what happened next: the number of views on Youtube kept going up! Today we are nearing the 20 000 mark which is pretty unexpected for an indie short. Strong from the undeniable success of this film and the newly forged team of DiggerFilms and ThinkRebel, we decide to move forward with our passion project: Decorus Chaos.” To know more about the series, TO SEE THE TEASER, visit the indiegogo campaign and suport it by sharing it and by helping them.

This week I’M going back in 2003 to talk about a film from director Glen Baisley : The Tenement.
Produced by Light And Dark Productions, this inde horror flick was release in 2003 by Brain Damage Films in the US and Worldwide from Maxim Media International. The Tenement was Glen Baisley 3rd film and it was starring Michael Gingold and Suzi Lorraine. In 2004, Baisley directed Sins of the Father. He is now in post-production for is new feature film called : Fairview Falls.
There is something evil about The Tenement. It does something strange to the people who live there. Ethan Fernier is obsessed with the horror movies of B-movie director, Winston Korman. His destiny lies in the shadows of a black rose – the symbol of decayed innocence. Sarah, a simple mute, lives her life listening to the radio but obsessed neighbor, Henry Wallace has other plans for her. Jimmy Wayne Garrick is bitten by a wild animal and becomes obsessed with the idea that he is becoming a werewolf. The Taxi Driver is a serial killer who picks up innocent women. One of his victims gives him more than he bargained for.
After the Retro Friday, I decided to add something during the week for you all. I always provided you with simple link on independent horror project. Yes I do add the trailer of the films but it’s kinda of nice to actually watch something and be entertain !
So, from now, every Wednesday, I will add something on the DiggerFilms Youtube channel so you can enjoy some short films, making-of or trailers.
For the first week, I decided to start with a short film that we did in 2007. The Hit (2007) is the second of a trilogy “noir” film that DiggerFilms produced along with Logruss Productions. The Hit won THE PUBLIC CHOICE award at the Montreal Spasm film festival, The BEST KILLING at the Quebec city Vitesse Lumière film festival and also won BEST DIRECTING at the Montreal Spasm a la ronde festival. I hope you will like it.
It will also be screen at La Nuit Spasm at 10h30pm at the Café Cléopatra. Unfortunately, the movie is not in competition. But it will be a hell of a night. Doors open at 8pm. Show start at 9pm and close at 3am.
Under the Scares is a documentary that we are doing on the independent horror business. We went to New York, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal to film people such as Lloyd Kaufman, Robert Kurtzman, Tony Timpone, Rodrigo Gudino, Debbie Rochon, Courtney Solomon, Herschel Gordon Lewis, Gary Jones, Brinke Stevens, Maurice Devereaux, Sv Bell and many more.
It’s good to have you back here for 2010 ! Again,just to remind you, the goal of the blog is to show you some independent horror stuff each day. I try to help the young filmmakers with their horror flick. Also am not the kind of guy who will really give a bad opinion on certain trailer, or poster or whatever….. I think that inde horror flick can be love/hate depending of the public who watching them.
What’s new ?
Well in 2010, we will also try to do some thing different. Each friday will be a RETRO Friday ! Why only showing the new film ? Old flick are still fun to watch !In February, Profile Wednesday will see the day. Each Wednesday we will expose an actress, a director, a company, a review website, a convention ect….
