I have some updates on four indie horror flicks that will hopefully be gracing cineplex screens in the very near future.
Every Halloween at midnight, the Devil simultaneously appears in two places. The High Plains of India and a quiet cemetery in Kansas. It’s November 2nd, the Day of the Dead. Two federal marshals report to the small town of Shin Bone, Kansas, moments after a tornado warning, to transport a prisoner with no past and no identity. He is known only as… Sin-Jin Smyth.
The cast includes Reb Brown, Jeff Conaway, Roddy Piper, Charles Cyphers, Jonathan Davis, Christopher Doyle, Billy Duffy, Kevin Gage, Robert Griffith, Paul Jacobson, Gary Kasper, Kevin McNally, Jacqueline Moore and adult film actress Jenna Jameson.

The House at the End of the Drive
David King isn’t having a good week. His girlfriend dumped him and threw him out, he’s living on a couch at his friend’s house and pressure at his stockbroker job is building. Determined to change his life, he decides to dip into his family trust fund and buy a house in the hills, away from the angst of Los Angeles. His friend Robert, a hustling real estate agent suggests a home that just went on the market. And David takes it. So David and his loyal dog, Sebastian, move into a hillside home on Beaumont Rd. It’s three stories and beautiful. On the social front, Robert’s live-in girlfriend, Felicia, sets David up with Jennifer, who is invited for a dinner party on the mid-summer night of July 29th. But there is something terribly wrong with the house at the end of the drive.
Cast includes James Oliver, Jonathan Mangum, Alison Raimondi, Angela Jones, Lance Henriksen, John Dylan Howard, Marco Greco, Ellen Geer, Gizelle D’Cole, Yusuf Gatewood, Paydin LoPachin, Lisa Diane Morgan, Via Osgood and Jessica Szohr.

The Murder Game trailer
A group of teenagers play a game in which one of them is secretly chosen to be the “killer,” while the others remain innocent victims. Armed with prop weapons, the “killer” must use cunning tactics to eliminate the other players before being found out. After their parents halt the activity for fear someone may actually get hurt, the teens decide to sneak into a large mini-storage warehouse during the closed, late-night hours to hold their game. At first, the game is better than ever. But, things take a turn for the worse as one by one, the players begin dying… for real.
The Murder Game is having its world premiere on May 3, 2006.
The cast includes Bob Taylor, Joanne Adams, Graham Bryan, Natasha Dahlberg, Rita Davies and Luke de Lacey.

Dead and Gone
Dead and Gone is a new indie horror movie that was shot near Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The story follows English actor Jack Wade (Quentin Jones) and his ailing wife Frankie (Katherine Bates), a former Hollywood studio executive, in an isolated cabin in the mountains where they’ve gone to convalesce in peace and quiet. What they don’t know is that the cabin was the scene of a brutal murder… and some memories never die.
The cast includes Katheryn Bates, Kara Rose Dragun, Kyle Gass, Marilyn Ghigliotti, Quentin Jones, Jeff MacFarland, Ben Moody, Kaera Rose, Harry Shannon and Gillian Shure. Harry Manfredini is doing the music score for Dead And Gone.
