Say ‘Candyman’ Five Times Into Your Mic to Unlock Final Trailer
The final trailer for Candyman can be seen in the same way that you would call upon the hook handed entity. The marketing team behind the film must have been hard at work to think of this one. Very cool and very creepy.
In order to to watch the final trailer you can head over to the official site, enable your microphone and then speak Candyman into your mic five times. This will give you access to what you are looking for. We aren’t responsible for anything else that might occur…
It is a blessing that you don’t have to say Candyman into the mirror five times in order to access the trailer. That would be too cruel. I mean, the trailer isn’t worth your life after all.
I love this type of marketing. It pulls you into the fun of the whole thing. Best of all this is all happening a week away from the films release. The Nia DaCosta film has really manged to get everyone’s attention as it has neared. The latest trailer is seriously creepy and was the final nail in the coffin we needed to be entirely excited about seeing it.
Are you excited about checking out Candyman this weekend? Let us know in the comments section.
‘The Curious Case of Natalia Grace’ True Story Partly Mirrors the Story of ‘Orphan’
Wow. Truth is stranger than fiction. The ID channel documentary digs into the strange, chilling story that isn’t unlike the story in Orphan. Currently, on MAX, The Curious Case of Natalia Grace is a brilliant and out of this world documentary that is a copy of Orphan. Insead of Esther, we haev Natalia and the results are as chilling and bizarre.
The documentary series beging with a couple adopting a child before realizing that the “child” has pubic hair and has started their menstral cycle. It isn’t long before the adopted adult (in their late 20’s early 30’s) begins to talk about killing the family who adopter her.
It isn’t long before the documentary shifts gears to reveal something more sinister and shocking than finding out your life has become Orphan the movie. I don’t want to spoil what that twist is but it is something I’m highly recommending.
The Curious Case of Natalie Grace is a rare doc like The Jinx that manages to pull of impossible feats in storytelling.
The official synopsis for The Curious Case of Natalia Grace goes like this:
Initially assumed to be a 6-year-old Ukrainian orphan with a rare bone growth disorder, Natalia was adopted by Kristine and Michael Barnett in 2010. However, the happy family dynamic soured when allegations against Natalia were brought by the Barnetts who alleged Natalia was an adult masquerading as a child with intent to harm their family. In 2013, Natalia was discovered living on her own which ignited an investigation that led to Michael and Kristine’s arrest and a firestorm of questions.
The Curious of case of Natalia Grace is now streaming on Max. Do yourself a favor and watch this bizarre tale.
‘Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story’ – An Interview With Gary Smart and Christopher Griffiths
Hollywood Dreams and Nightmares: The Robert England Story, a horror documentary to be released by Cinedigm on Screambox and Digital on June 6, 2023. The film, with a running time of over two hours, was shot over the course of two years and highlights the career of the classically trained actor and director Robert Englund.
The documentary follows Englund’s career from his early days in Buster and Billie and Stay Hungry (starring with Arnold Schwarzenneger) to his big break in the 1980s as Freddy Krueger to his directorial debut with the 1988 horror film 976-EVIL to his iconic acting status in current roles such as the hit TV series on Netflix, Stranger Things.
Synopsis: A classically trained actor and director, Robert Englund has become one of the most revolutionary horror icons of our generation. Throughout his career, Englund starred in many well-known movies but shot to super-stardom with his portrayal of supernatural serial killer Freddy Krueger in the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise. This unique and intimate portrait captures the man behind the glove and features interviews with Englund and his wife Nancy, Lin Shaye, Eli Roth, Tony Todd, Heather Langenkamp, and more.
We scored an interview with Director Gary Smart and Christopher Griffiths, and we discussed their new documentary. During the interview, we touch upon how this idea was pitched to Englund, the challenges during production, their future projects (yes, more awesomeness is on the way), and maybe the most obvious yet perhaps not so obvious question, why a documentary on Robert Englund?
I thought I knew everything about the man behind the glove; I was DEAD wrong. This documentary is built for the SUPER Robert Englund fan and will intrigue audiences to check out the library of filmography that has made his career. This documentary opens up the window and allows fans to peer into the life of Robert Englund, and it will certainly NOT disappoint.

‘CHOPPER’ Creator Launches Kickstarter for Horror Film
There’s a whiff of petrol and an eerie chill in the air, a ghostly presence growing stronger every day in a dark, sprawling junkyard in Los Angeles. This presence will come alive this summer, in the form of the horror short film CHOPPER, a project aiming to make its way to horror film festivals globally. But first, it needs your support. Visit the Chopper Kickstarter here!
Blending elements of “Sons of Anarchy” and “Nightmare on Elm Street,” CHOPPER is not just another horror film. It’s the brainchild of award-winning screenwriter and producer Martin Shapiro and is based on his comic book series published by Asylum Press. The film will serve as a proof of concept to pitch to major players like Netflix, aiming to get a feature film financed.
The Haunting Tale of CHOPPER
In this modern-day reimagining of the Headless Horseman from Sleepy Hollow, a young bartender and her biker friends start experiencing terrifying supernatural occurrences after experimenting with a strange new drug at a Daytona Bike Week party. Soon, they find themselves stalked by the Reaper – a headless, menacing ghost on a motorcycle collecting the souls of sinners in the afterlife.
CHOPPER is for horror aficionados, lovers of thrilling comic books, and anyone intrigued by the supernatural. If you’ve enjoyed movies like “Sleepy Hollow“, “Candyman“, or TV shows like “Sons of Anarchy“, or “Stranger Things“, then CHOPPER will be right up your dark alley.
The Journey from Comic Book to Film
Martin Shapiro embarked on the CHOPPER journey years ago, first writing it as a feature spec script for Hollywood. Later, on the advice of his agent, it took the form of a comic book series, which became successful enough to attract the attention of film producers. Today, CHOPPER is a step away from becoming a film. And this is where you come in.
Why CHOPPER Needs You
Producing a film is expensive, even more so when it involves night exterior scenes with motorcycle stunts and fight sequences. The team is personally investing in the project, with Martin Shapiro putting forth $45,000, and Baked Studios covering the VFX shots. However, to realize the full potential of CHOPPER, they need your support.
The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise the remaining 20% of the budget. This would enable the team to hire more crew members, rent better camera equipment, and add an extra day of production for more shot coverage.
The Power Team Behind CHOPPER
Eliana Jones and Dave Reaves have been cast for the lead roles. Eliana is known for her performances in “Night Hunter” and “Hemlock Grove” among others, while Dave has a repertoire that includes “SEAL Team” and “Hawaii Five-0“.
On the crew side, Martin Shapiro is directing, Ean Mering is producing, and the cinematography will be handled by award-winning cinematographer Jimmy Jung Lu who shot the Netflix horror film “What Lies Below“, “Bedeviled” and “They Live in the Grey“. Baked Studios will lend their VFX expertise to the project, and Frank Forte is the storyboard artist.
How You Can Help and What You Get in Return
By supporting CHOPPER through Kickstarter, you can be a part of this exciting project. The team is offering a range of rewards for backers, including exclusive behind-the-scenes videos, limited-edition collectibles, a VIP pass to the film screening, and the chance for YOU to be a character in the next comic book.
The Road Ahead
With your help, the team hopes to start production on the short film by August 28, 2023, and complete editing by October 1, 2023. The Kickstarter campaign will run until June 29, 2023.
While the production of any movie is riddled with challenges and risks, the team at Thunderstruck Pictures is experienced and prepared. They promise to keep all backers updated on the progress of the film and are committed to meeting backer’s expectations.
So, if you’re ready for a hair-raising ride, hit that pledge button, and join us on this spine-chilling journey to bring CHOPPER to life!
