LOCKED DOWN: THE SCARIEST SHOW YOU WILL NEVER SEE!

Morpheus presents LOCKED DOWN, an innovative and exhilarating new theatrical experience which offers participants the thrill of immersive theatre in the safety of their own homes.


This is a show like no other. Hosted online by live actors, Locked Down is an exclusive, interactive experience in which audiences are invited to close their eyes and let Morpheus take control as they are guided on a terrifying and imagination-bending sonic adventure.

Dystopic and nightmarish, Locked Down guides groups of up to six people – each wearing headphones and a blindfold – on a sensory journey via Zoom.

With Covid-19 restrictions currently in place throughout the world, this is the ultimate ‘night out at home’ for groups of friends or families looking for a unique and memorable party idea.

The show is also the perfect team-building experience for workplaces whose employees are working remotely.

Following on from the recent success of Morpheus’ first digital production All Hallow’s Eve, Locked Down began performances on 11 November and is open for booking now.  

A clock strikes, darkness falls and the game begins... Everything depends on you!

You wake to find yourself in a strange dystopian facility. Memories distorted - a jigsaw puzzle of violence and horror. What happened here? As you explore your new surroundings, the pieces begin to slot together. There was a deadly virus. A frantic search for a cure. Mass panic. Civil unrest. Riots. A war. 

There is now just one hope for civilization: you.

Can you work together to find the cure? Will you escape alive or will watch as the world descends into darkness? In this adrenalized and interactive experience, you are the star, the saviour.

LISTINGS
Tickets available to book from http://morpheus-show.co.uk

Short fantasy thriller GOODNIGHT, HALLOWEEN - available to view for free on YouTube

Daily death figures…people locked down, hiding, communicating via webcams…a divided nation…a right wing agenda pulling the strings of government with populist politics…welcome to alternate Detroit in 1986…welcome to the world of GOODNIGHT,  HALLOWEEN. 

 

GOODNIGHT,  HALLOWEEN is a short fantasy thriller from award winning writer/ director Luther Bhogal-Jones – in this alternate world Halloween creatures have co-existed with mankind for all time…but now a forced government policy has removed their rights and allowed human citizens to exterminate them without consequence. The creatures have been forced into hiding and forged uneasy alliances between competing different species, all with their own agendas. A ray of hope emerges – evidence that could discredit K.R.O.N.A – the Khristian Right Of New Amerika – and having retrieved the evidence a group of creatures are scattered and forced to stay in hiding while the evidence is painstakingly uploaded to the Network…if they can stay alive long enough…which is where the film begins…

Ironically prescient for these times after being 14 years in the making (don’t ask, or refer to the accompanying 10 FAQs for more information on that) Goodnight, Halloween is a thrilling stylish throwback to the creature films of the VHS 80s era – something that could have come from studio stables of New World or Empire Pictures – while combining elements of Robocop’s mediabreak interludes and downbeat, cynical elements of John Carpenter’s work (especially with the Carpenter-esque score to the film – courtesy of Worthing composer Monzen Nakacho)

GOODNIGHT,  HALLOWEEN is available to view now at https://youtu.be/_j92cxEB39o

4k restoration of David Cronenberg's controversial CRASH on Digital and Disc

Technology and sexuality meet in a head-on collision in Crash – director David Cronenberg’s controversial adaptation of writer J.G. Ballard’s hugely transgressive 1973 novel starring James Spader and Holly Hunter.

Spader stars as James Ballard, an advertising executive whose deviant sexual desires are awakened by a near fatal automobile accident with Dr Helen Remington (Hunter). Soon the pair, alongside Ballard’s wife Catherine (Deborah Kara Unger), are drawn into an underground world of car crash fetishism presided over by renegade scientist Vaughan (Elias Koteas). Danger, sex and death become entwined as eroticism and technology join together in a disturbing, deadly union.

Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival for originality, daring and audacity, Crash remains an incredibly subversive and confrontational piece of cinema – Cronenberg himself describes it as “a dangerous film” – now newly refurbished in a stunning 4K restoration.

Hutson’s PROGENY spawns new novel for fans

British horror legend Shaun Hutson releases a new hardback novel, PROGENY and the paperback version of his hit 2019 hardback novel, Testament. Both novels are published by Caffeine Nights Publishing and supported with eBook and audio versions. 

PROGENY is the long-awaited sequel to his 1983 bestselling novel, Spawn. Caffeine Nights commissioned the original cover artist, for Spawn, Mark Taylor, to design the cover for Progeny. The artwork pays homage to Spawn while presenting a totally new book with a lovely classic horror retro feel.

Progeny works as a stand-alone novel, but for fans who have read Spawn, there is a whole back story there that adds another level to reading Progeny. I always wanted to go back and revisit some of my earlier work and see how I could develop the work over 35 years later. Spawn was always one of those stories that was left with strands that could be picked up and spun into something more horrific than the original.” Shaun said. “I also loved the irony of a book being spawned from the original that really is its progeny.”

Progeny is Shaun Hutson’s thirty ninth horror novel under his own name and is available in hardback, eBook and audiobook from all good book shops and online.

THE VIGIL - Released Digitally Nov 30

Following its successful theatrical release, audiences who missed THE VIGIL in cinemas will have the chance to be spooked by the supernatural Blumhouse horror when it’s released on digital platforms later this month in the UK and Ireland, and on DVD January 2021. 

Set over the course of a long, dark night in Brooklyn’s Hassidic “Boro” Park neighbourhood, following Yakov (Dave Davis, True Detective), a former Hassid, who has lost his faith, and isn’t eager to go back to the insular religious community he only recently fled. 

But when Reb Shulem (Menashe Lustig), a rabbi and confidante, approaches Yakov and offers to pay him to be the shomer (watching over the dead body of a community member) for a recently deceased Holocaust survivor, he reluctantly accepts the job. Shortly after arriving at the dilapidated house, Yakov realises that something is very, very wrong. This will not be a quiet vigil.

From Blumhouse (the producers of Halloween and Insidious), and described by Bloody Disgusting as “a fresh take on the religious/demon possession horror film”, THE VIGIL is the startling debut feature from Keith Thomas. With an unusual and evocative setting, it’s beautifully crafted, packed with fingernail-shredding scares (including a mysterious video message that’ll stand your hair on end), an ominous and eerie score, and features a standout performance from Davis as a man confronting evil. The words “You want some tea?” will never sound the same again.

THE VIGIL will be released on Digital Platforms from 30TH November and on DVD on the 4TH January 2021 in the UK and Ireland.

 

Russian sci-fi blockbuster THE BLACKOUT: INVASION EARTH - out December

A top recon team step in when an alien invasion shuts down the planet, in THE BLACKOUT: INVASION EARTH, released by 4Digital THIS December on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital platforms. 

Imagine Chernobyl crossed with Battle: Los Angeles, with a touch of Predator, in this Russian sci-fi blockbuster that sees a future world teetering on oblivion.

When the end comes for civilization, it will not be terrorism or nuclear war that causes it, but ‘The Blackout’. An unexplained phenomenon has struck the Earth. Contact between most towns on Earth has been severed. A small area in Eastern Europe is the only location that still has electricity.

When military forces venture outside, they discover a shocking truth - corpses everywhere. In stores, in cars, on roads, in hospitals and railway stations. Who or what is destroying all life on Earth? And how long can the last outpost of mankind endure? It’s up to a crack squad of troops to investigate, venturing into a no-man’s land to confront the threat, whatever it might be - and exterminate it at all costs!

Featuring hi-tech effects, heavy-duty military equipment, bloody bear attacks and a suicide mission to end them all, The Blackout: Invasion Earth is a thrilling and chilling, action-packed epic that sees the fate of humanity resting in the hands of a group of heavily armoured, but massively overmatched soldiers (headed by Aleksey Cahdov, star of Nightwatch), and a lone female journalist. 

This is two hours of doom and destruction, intense firefights and mind-control mayhem - and a strange, leather-clad figure called Id, who holds the key to the blackout. 

THE BLACKOUT: INVASION EARTH will be released 28th DECEMBER on BD, DVD AND Digital platforms.

Campaign for VR Horror "WE ARE OMEGA" Launched.

British screenwriter A.J. Cupples and Canadian director Brendan Petersen have teamed up to work on psychological horror, WE ARE OMEGA

Synopsis
A man named JJ drops $5000 to take his old friend Molly on a VR date. Think CABIN IN THE WOODS meets an episode of BLACK MIRROR.

Unlike the VR you are used to, Omega Reality offers an experience which requires no headset.

Once they enter the virtual world, they traverse to crazy new places through portals as they encounter nightmarish creatures, a sadistic clown named Gropey, a raving masked slasher with a neon flail named Bootleg, and more! 

What is virtual and what is reality starts to blur, as they start to wonder if they will ever be able to escape. . .

The Indiegogo campaign for this feature film is live, and we’re reaching for £15,000 (19.4 USD/25.8 CAD) to give JJ and Molly’s hellish story its proper justice... from visual FX of the nightmarish creatures to the high-tech portals operated by Omega.

Darkslide Pictures has experience in creating quality films and are calling all horror lovers to support and give an outlet for independent artists to make honest and profound feature films which don’t come from Hollywood’s cookie-cutter.

Our leads for the project are Beáta Imre and Honnor T. Seaton - our cast and crew are tight-knit and diverse... since the screenplays initial journey across the Atlantic, it has reached the cold climates of Thunder Bay, Ontario and found its way to the plains of the peach state, Georgia.

Every eye that falls on our campaign helps tremendously, and for that, we’re offering our backers amazing perks in return!
