Crystal Lake Publishing have announced a new collection of short stories which channel the old school horror of the 80s and 90s by Paul F Olson (Alexander’s Song). The collection is introduced by a detailed foreword Chet Williamson, and includes the original out-of-print stories alongside ‘Bloodybones,’ a brand new novella, described as a tale of loss, longing and chilling horror. Whispered Echoes will be available for Kindle and in paperback from 23 June. Watch this space for further news and a review, soon.


Blasphemous, the new 2D platformer from makers of The Last Door, hits Kickstarter target

From the team that produced the multiple award winning platform game, The Last Door, comes a new title, Blasphemous. The game, also a 2 dimensional action platformer, features old school, but well crafted sprite -based visuals and no small quantity of blood and gore. The Kickstarter is still open, so if you want to get yourself a perk or simply be amongst the first to play the game, you can make it happen here.

NACIYE-movie-posterTurkish horror, NACIYE, offer fresh twist on home invasion horror

NACIYE is a somewhat familiar tale of a couple who arrive at the new home they have just rented, only to be confronted by a seemingly dangerous woman, claiming to be the rightful owner. It’s a story we’ve all heard before, but the film is said to have a Turkish twist which lends it some unique characteristics. It’s available now on Video on demand.
