"Witch Creek Road 2": a blood-drenched ode to classic horror

Described as “a blood-drenched ode to classic horror” (horrortalk.com), Witch Creek Road “answers the question of what would happen if Mean Girls existed in the Evil Dead universe” (screamhorrormag.com).

In short, Witch Creek Road is a survival horror about love, acceptance, death and revenge. And sexy, flesh-eating demons. Yeah, it has those, too.

Issue 2 picks up where issue 1 left off, and examines the idea of madness, and what happens to a person when they've peered too far behind the veil. Oh, and did I mention it takes place in an abandoned cabin in the woods? That always ends well... right?!

Witch Creek Road #2 launched on Kickstarter on September 13th with funding already at 450% and going for !! Be sure to join in on the horror and the fun by visiting the Kickstarter page

Witch Creek Road follows a group of high school seniors, and explores the consequences of taking the wrong road. At its core, it's survival horror, but it's also a story about love, acceptance, death and revenge. And sexy, flesh-eating demons. Because every story needs sexy, flesh-eating demons.

You can read the entire first issue on WEBTOONS or TAPAS - both of these sites have been optimized for reading on mobile devices. Or, for a more traditional comic experience, you can read Witch Creek Road on my personal website, releasingtheserpents.com.

"Wait, wait, wait! If I can read the comic for free, why am I backing?!"

The answer is: you don't have to. The comic will continue to be posted for free. But if you do back - and the PDF is only $1 - you'll receive a copy of issue 2 immediately after the Kickstarter is over and the reward surveys have been filled out. And once amb3r has finished with her colors, you'll receive an updated, full-color version of the issue. The pages I post online will only ever be in grayscale.

Trailer Released for “Mad Women in My Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy”

Cabaret performer Monica Salvi and filmmaker Samantha Oči have partnered up to create an eccentric promotional video for the upcoming stage show “Mad Women in my Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy” - which is due to be performed in London and New York in October 2017.

Shot in London’s Murder Mile Studio (a renowned alternative venue and S&M Dungeon) the trailer is full of dark humour. Miss Salvi describes it as “Hammer Horror meets Rocky Horror meets Alice Cooper” - citing these influences as her greatest inspirations whilst growing up. Paired with the dark and dramatically lit atmospheres that characterise Miss Oči’s cinematography style, the trailer seeks to conveys a small taste of what is to come with Miss Salvi’s full theatrical show.

About the Show
Set in an imaginary lunatic asylum "Mad Women in My Attic!" is the semi-autobiographical cabaret brainchild of Monica Salvi, an Italian performer based in London, UK. With multiple costume changes, haunting and comedic songs from the most daring and dark musical theatre repertoire (such as Sweeney Todd, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Threepenny Opera, Next to Normal, Jane Eyre, Sunset Boulevard), and some kinky audience participation, Mad Women in my Attic! is a fantastic romp through murderous, wicked and insane characters that Miss Salvi had the pleasure to play in her stage career.

DARK ROAST - Trailer and poster released

Green Room meets Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, in "Dark Roast". A blood-splattered horror-comedy of errors with a punk rock ethos. Fakecharmer Productions is proud to present the official trailer and poster for the short film. Check them out below...


It's Halloween night, and Vanessa and Nathan, members of the punk band Piss Bucket, have their biggest show yet lined up. This could be just the ticket they need to leave their routine existence behind. All they need to do to make the show is kill time until the end of their shift serving coffee behind the counter of the Grind Haus. But when bodies start to drop and threatening phone calls from a psychopathic killer pour in they soon realize time isn’t the only thing being killed. To escape their mundane lives slinging coffee they'll need to escape alive first. 

View the trailer


Dark Roast will have its world premiere at the NOLA Horror Film Fest in New Orleans, LA on September 23, followed by October screenings at the Sanford International Film Festival in Sanford, ME and the Halloween International Film Festival in Kill Devil Hills, NC.

Dark Roast is written and directed by Topher Hansson, an up-and-coming multi-hyphenate who also stars in the film alongside Kati McCarron, J.D. Achille, Chris Goodwin, Jose Guns Alves, Codey Gillum, Chris Fisher, and Dane C. Volke.

The project was borne out of frustration. Being trapped at a mundane desk job inspired Hansson to write characters looking to escape death, both literally and figuratively. Dark Roast was initially conceived as a feature film but was condescend into a short due to the limited resources available. Hansson plans to use Dark Roast as a calling card in the hopes of producing the full feature. He explains, "The tone and premise reflect what the eventual feature will bring, in addition to more story, more heart, and much more blood."

Additional festival screenings are in the works, so be sure to follow Dark Roast on Facebook for updates.
