Going viral in less than 24 hours, the above 2011 Halloween light show gives homage to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. It features four singing pumpkin faces, tombstones, hand-carved pumpkins, strobes, floods and thousands of lights. Most all lights have been changed from incandescent to RGB LED so power consumption is a lot less than previous years. Also DMX added to show. All lights, faces and props are custom made (DIY) by the poster except for the roof line which are CCRs. Controlling channels have gone up 8X from last year. 1144 channels. Light-O-Rama. Head to Riverside, CA to see in person.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg as after the break you’re going to find a slew of new horror-themed videos that rage from a classic ’70s Universal Studios commercial featuring Alfred Hitchcock to “Freddy vs Jason: The Rematch” and g4 Films’ “Mario Kart” horror short, “Kart Driver”. Discovered on an old umatic tape, below you’ll find a old Universal Studios commercial from the 1970’s that features the elusive Alfred Hitchcock (and a look at Jaws like you’ve never seen him before!)
Those of you addicted to claymation as much as I am will enjoy “Postman Pat’s Pet Sematary“, a gory retelling of the Stephen King classic.
I love a good fanmade horror film that brings the filmmakers’ favorite icons back to the screen. Such the case with Freddy vs Jason: The Rematch, which comes courtesy of the Beat Down Boogie crew. Featuring a cool battle between Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, the film stars Brian Lee and Matthew Sumner and was directed, shot and cut by Micah Moore.
G4 Films’ Epictober Film Festival rolls on today with the second short-horror film, “Kart Driver,” which takes the “Mario Kart” franchise on a darker, deadlier spin.
Fury and obsession leads a heroic plumber to seek out and bring home his damsel in distress, the girl of his dreams, even if it means facing off with a creature from the very bowels of hell. “Kart Driver” is directed by Drew Daywalt, a founding member of FEWDIO, the world’s first online Horror Troupe, dedicated to all things dark and fantastical. Tomorrow the G4 Films Epictober Film Festival concludes with “The Birds of Anger,” an homage to Hitchcock’s classic, The Birds with an “Angry Birds” twist.
