* New, Walking Dead Spinoff *
“Fear the Walking Dead”
– Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has done for the modern zombie on TV shows ALMOST as much as George A. Romero did for the flesh eaters in films. The Walking Dead has brought back the zombie, and is a first for television, and the series is based on Kirkman’s graphic novels. He also serves as creator and exec. prod. on the ratings juggernaut.
– Well ‘FOX International’, the international distributor of Walking Dead, has teamed with Robert Kirkman and co-producer Circle Of Confusion to develop a drama series based on Kirkman’s new upcoming graphic novels set in the world of EXORCISM. -(FuckYea!)-
– The series follows a young man, Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it. Kirkman will also exec. prod. this series through his Image Comics Skybound imprint alongside The Walking Dead exec. producers David Alpert of Circle of Confusion. “Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television,”
– Excited for exorcisms? MSA is all over it, can’t wait, and will keep you freaks updated.

“Russian Sleep Experiment”
We had this in a Tales of Terror article – Click here if you want to read the short story of:
A feature film about the urban legend involving Gore-Orphanage Road is scheduled to be released this year.
The movie’s trailer (watch it below) is trending as one of the most shared YouTube videos in northern Ohio.
A description of “Gore Orphanage” provided on the YouTube page says the movie stars Maria Olsen, Bill Townsend and Keri Maletto and introduces Emma Smith, Nora Hoyle and Brandon Mangin Jr. “Based on the popular Ohio urban legend and set in the depression era, ‘Gore’ shows that some things are worse than losing your family.”
The film is being produced by Cody Knotts and directed by Emily Lapisardi, with cinematography by Nicholas Carrington.
Set in 1934, the movie follows a young girl named Nellie, played 9-year-old Emma Smith, who is sent to the Gore Orphanage following the death of her family.
She becomes friends of Esther (Nora Hoyle, 8) and Buddy (Brandon Mangin, 9) but the trio also must deal with the keeper of the orphanage, Mrs. Pryor (Maria Olsen, who is noted for her role in “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.”)
Also in the movie is Bill Townsend, who plays a German caretaker. The son of Miss America 1963 Jackie Mayer Townsend of Sandusky, he is making his screen acting debut.
The movie is being filmed almost entirely at the Scottdale home known as Graystone Manor outside Pittsburgh.
***Playlist of a few videos at the at actual location, including a shory evp, and 3 short videos by the filmmakers:
– The local legend claims that an orphanage on that road in the Vermilion area was the site of the violent deaths of young children. The legend further states that a fire in the 1800s destroyed the orphanage and killed many children. Supernatural activity is claimed to take place in that area.
*Someone wrote this about their experience at the orphanage:
– ‘My wife, daughter and I visited Gore Orphange on October 26, 1999. Our experience is as follows:
– “We went there not to really find anything, just for shits and giggles. Most people commonly believe that the bridge and the field on the right is the site. It is not. If you pass the field you will come to a wooded area.
– There you will find a 4 foot tall sandstone pillar, that marked the entrance to the orphanage. We parked our car and got out and went about 20 from the road where the pillar stands. You might have to look hard, because it’s easily missed.
As soon as you step in the woods you have a feeling of being watched. And a sadness envelopes you. We went there in the middle of the day (4 p.m. approximately). It was cool and crisp. No fogs or mists. (at least not yet!) Immediately upon entering the area we heard above our heads, in the trees above, a squeaking door open and heavy footsteps.
– This repeated itself three times. The door sounded like one of those really heavy oak ones and the footsteps sounded like heavy steps on hardwood floors. At this point we went back to our car and got our tape recorder and our camera. We placed the recorder on the sandstone pillar. We then took several pictures. As I took the pictures, mists began to come around. We heard the dull roar of a fire and crackles of the flames. I heard mumbling voices. My wife became extremely uncomfortable and we went back to our car.
– As we drove off, I asked my wife to stop the car and I unrolled my window. There stood a young boy. He had blond hair and he was about 7 years old. He was wearing ragged old clothes (a red sweater and dark pants.) He sneezed. I asked him his name and he said “Jacob”. He appeared scared and looking for something. As we left he stood in the middle of the road and waved bye. As we passed the bridge, we taped again. Later that day, we had our pictures developed. In the background you can see 4 childrens faces and a man in the distance in the woods. I wonder if the man is the one that you speak of. He looked very ominous. The ominous man showed up in every shot.
– Later after reviewing the recordings, we heard the dull roar through the whole tape (and no it was not windy) about 4 minutes into the tape there is about 3 minutes of mumbling, somebody saying “Help Me” and screams (about 6). You can hear the door open in the beginning, “Jacob” saying “Jacob” and also Jacob’s sneeze. There is no way that we could have made these noises. We were in complete due to the awe that we felt. While at the site we did not hear the screams or the voices. We going to get the pictures enlarged to poster sizes to get a better view. Later we found on our car tiny handprints. And on the drivers side window there was Richard written from the inside of the car.”

New “Ju-On” Trailer:
*This is a playlist of Trailers with a bunch of good ones on it like ‘The Vatican Tapes‘ and ‘Atticus Institute‘ so be sure to at least skip through it and check ’em out*
*’Forest of Hands and Teeth’*
..is a book that needs to be made into a movie. I included a few quotes from the book so you can see why I think it could be a good movie and this is a trailer they made, but as far as I know there is no actual movie in production, yet.
– “I want to sleep, I want dreams to pull me from this world and make me forget. To stop the memories from swirling around me. To put an end to this ache that consumes me.”
– “You think you want love, Mary. You think it is this beautiful gift that does nothing but fill you and make you whole. But you are wrong. Love can be cruel and ugly. It can become dark and cause the deepest pain.”
– “Who are we if not the stories we pass down? What happens when there’s no one left to tell those stories? To hear them? Who will ever know that I existed?”
– “We are our own memory-keepers and we have failed ourselves. It is like that game we played in school as children. Sitting in a circle, one student whispers a phrase into another student’s ear and the phrase is passed around until the last student in the circle repeats what she hears, only to find out it is nothing like what it is supposed to be… This is our life now.”
– “It’s as if there is infinity between our lips and we will never actually touch. Like math, where dividing by half can last for eternity.”
– “That’s just the way life is. Some days you wake up and the beach is clear and you forget about everything that surrounds us. And some days you wake up and it looks like this. That’s the nature of the tides.”
