Horse-Laugh Scream in "Werewolf Of London" (1935) (video)

In 1935, Valerie Hobson was featured in both "Bride of Frankenstein"...

...and "Werewolf of London."

She's quite lovely, although in one close-up in "Werewolf of London"...

...she displays her patented "horse-laugh" scream face.

Star Wars: A New Hope (1977): The "Carrie!" Blooper (video)

After the successful attack on the Death Star in "Star Wars: A New Hope"...

...Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) slips up and calls Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) by her real name.


P.S. Mark Hamill has since claimed that he's actually saying "There she...!" as in "There she is!" It still sounds like "Carrie!" to me. You be the judge!

SRP: $14.99

Directly Following its Theatrical Release, Synkronized Films Releases Director Kate Reed Davies' Feature-Length Debut on DVD from Travis Romero, The Creator of USA Network's "White Collar" and Executive Producer Michael Biehn; Also Starring Jennifer Blanc and Matthew Ziff


Truth can be prescribed in ALTERED PERCEPTION, a taut thriller from Travis Romero, the creator the USA Network's "White Collar" and executive producer Michael Biehn.

When the government attempts to produce a designer drug aimed at correcting the false perceptions that people develop during trauma and stress, the implications are deadly. Advertised as a cure for socio-political tensions, four couples volunteer, but end up with far more than they bargained for as their past and present are examined while taking variations of the new drug.

However, this causes them to doubt their own memory, perceptions -- and even their own sanity in this thriller in the vein of Disturbing Behavior and The Faculty.

Jade Tailor ("The Magicians," "Murder in the First")
Jennifer Blanc (The Night Visitor, "Dark Angel")

Terror Films Unveils Twenty-Two Horror Titles on the Steam Platform


Placing 22 Horror Films on the Massive Gamer Platform!

Los Angeles, CA. (Thursday, May 24, 2018) As part of their ongoing effort to release diverse, indie horror films all over the globe while expanding consumer awareness of their content, genre distributor TERROR FILMS has placed 22 films from its library onto the popular gamer site STEAM.

STEAM is the largest digital distribution platform for PC gaming. In recent years, it has started to make movies available on their platform with the most notable content coming from LIONSGATE. LIONSGATE made over 100 films available on the platform in 2016.

Although Terror Films doesn’t have the same star power behind their films, company president Joe Dain believes that’s what makes the placement special. Dain said of the change: “this was a calculated move on our part. There is a natural, connective tissue between gamers and horror, science fiction and fantasy film fans.  We believe our films are interesting, entertaining and diverse enough to gain the attention of STEAM’s massive user base. It was an easy decision on our part as we continue to expand onto new platforms and territories around the world.”

As of early 2018, STEAM had over 150 million registered accounts with a peak of 18.5 million concurrent users.  Terror Films intends to launch a marketing effort to drive attention to their developer page on the platform. The STEAM slate of films can be found HERE.

This most recent move comes on the heels of the company’s Amazon Prime expansion, which now has the ability to release films directly onto the platform in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Austria, Belize, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Sweden and the UK.

Wildly Risque' 1933 Pre-Code Shower Scene: "Meet The Baron" (video)

Before the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 became seriously enforced around 1934...

...movies were getting away with an awful lot of naughty stuff, like this frothy semi-nude shower scene from 1933's "Meet the Baron."

Also appearing in the film--fully clothed, thank goodness--were Ted Healy & His Stooges and Jimmy Durante.
