The Power Of Croshame Compels You!

I discovered a wicked new blog this morning, thanks to the Geeks Of Doom covering a very twisted little crocheted play set based on The Exorcist and the infamous puking on the priest. Check this shit out…

Seriously, how cool is that? The blog and artist go by the name Croshame and on the site you can check out a close up of the detail in the above Exorcist set and a handful of other works including a Sid and Nancy death scene, Grimm the little black metal guy, and more. It’s a new blog so the gallery of work isn’t huge, but every piece in it so far is pretty great. Check it out…

Midnight Son Looks To Breathe New Life Into Vampire Genre

The vampire subgenre has been more than a bit stale the past few years, with a glut of films, television programs and books looking to ride the wave set by HBO’s True Blood series (and it’s predecessor the Sookie Stackhouse novels) and the shiny happy tween nonsense of Twilight. Vampires have been everywhere recently, taking the zombie’s place as most used and abused monster in the mainstream.

Luckily for those of us that still love our vampires with some bite (sorry), there’s Midnight Son, the upcoming film from writer/director Scott Leberecht, producer Matt Compton (Seventh Moon), and executive producer Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project). Midnight Son looks to be a lot more in line with Romero’s Martin than any traditional vampire tales, and that is a good thing. Check out the official Midnight Son synopsis and trailer below.

MIDNIGHT SON is the story of Jacob, a young man confined to a life of isolation, due to a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His world opens up when he meets Mary, a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacob’s actions become increasingly bizarre as he struggles to cope with the effects of his worsening condition. Forced by the disease to drink human blood for sustenance, he must control his increasingly violent tendencies as local law enforcement narrow their focus on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.

For further info check out the official Midnight Son site. You can also follow the film on Facebook and Twitter, for all of you “social” butterflies.
