New movies! William Kaufman’s post-apocalyptic thriller Daylight’s End has finished its festival tour and will be in theaters in 20 cities starting tomorrow.

Daylight's-End-Theatrical-Poster-Special Hopefully, this will also do a nationwide theater run, but that aside, you’ll be able to see it on digital platforms like iTunes starting tomorrow as well. Here’s the synopsis:

Years after a mysterious plague has devastated the planet and turned most of humanity into blood-hungry creatures, a rogue drifter on a vengeful hunt stumbles across a band of survivors in an abandoned police station and reluctantly agrees to try to help them defend themselves and escape to the sanctuary they so desperately need.

We can ALWAYS use more zombies. Take a look at their Facebook page to find out where it’s playing (hopefully near you).

And while you’re looking for things to watch, be sure to check out horror soap opera Hell Town, which is out on cable VOD and Digital HD. Here’s more:

Steve Balderson’s festival favorite Hell Town is now available to rent or own starting August 23rd on Dish Network, Cox, Charter, Verizon Fios, iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu and more from Gravitas Ventures.  Presented as three episodes of a sadistic twist on Masterpiece Theater, Balderson (Firecracker, The Casserole Club) and co-director Elizabeth Spear have carved up a serialized story filled with catfights, cliffhangers, broken hearts and murder.  
 
Since the world premiere sponsored by the Austin Horror Society and Alamo Drafthouse, Hell Town has made audiences and critics laugh and scream, picking up awards for Best Feature at Colorado Horror-Con, as well as a Best Feature and Best Actress win for Amanda Deibert, with nominations for Best Actor, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography, at the Crimson Scream Horror Film Festival.
Debbie Rochon (Model Hunger, Return to Nuke ‘Em High, The Theater Bizarre) headlines as the hostess of the three surviving episodes of “Hell Town”, following the melodramatic, small-town and potentially short-lived lives of Krysten Day, Amanda Deibert, Owen Lawless, Ben Windholz, Jennifer Grace and Balderson muse Pleasant Gehman.
I talked about this one a few weeks ago. Take a look at the trailer again:

This one’s called The House on Pine Street, and it’ll be available September 30th on the following digital platforms: iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, Xbox and PlayStation. Hopefully, it’ll expand to other platforms soon. It’ll also be in theaters in two cities, but which two has yet to be decided.

Here’s more from the press release:

The story revolves around Jennifer (Emily Goss). She is seven months pregnant and reluctantly returning to her hometown in Kansas, after an unexpected mental breakdown. Coping with her fears of motherhood, a strained relationship with her husband, Luke (Taylor Bottles), and the overbearing presence of her own mother, Meredith (Cathy Barnett), Jennifer struggles to regain control of her life. But when strange things start happening in their new rental home, Jennifer begins to fear that it may be haunted. Alone in her convictions, Jennifer is forced to question her sanity as she attempts to find out what, if anything, is plaguing the house.

The House On Pine Street was directed by Aaron and Austin Keeling. The directors co-wrote the film The-House-on-Pine-Street-Still-Emily-Gross-Jennifer-Darkened-Hallwayalong with: Natalie Jones.

I'm a regular contributing writer to this website. I got into horror movies through the sci-fi monster films I watched with my dad as a kid (ex. Aliens) and the extreme amounts of zombie movies I spent a good portion of my college career watching. I absolutely love zombies (obviously), am a sucker for a low budget (or any) monster movie, and adore horror-comedy films. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is one of my favorite books, and I'm still waiting for an actually decent film adaptation to bring that fantastic novel to life. Outside of my life as a horror fan, I'm a writer and editor with dreams of turning my screenplays into movies and a love of wine and murder mysteries.
