Take a bite out of Bad Apples this February!
They're Rotten to the Core.
On Halloween night, two malevolent children terrorize a young innocent couple in their home, subjecting them to a Halloween they will never forget in Bad Apples, premiering on VOD this February from Uncork’d Entertainment.
It’s Halloween night, and two “bad apples” decide to play some wicked tricks on the one house in a suburban cul-de-sac that is not celebrating Halloween. They terrorize a young couple in their home and these tricks become increasingly more sinister as the night progresses, finally ending in a Halloween the entire neighborhood will never forget.
Brea Grant (“Dexter”, A Ghost Story), Graham Skipper (Beyond the Gates), Andrea Collins (The Hospital) and Danielle Reverman (Infernal) star in a Bryan Coyne film, out 6/2 on VOD.
Rituals of Black Magic: Dominus Inferi
“Dominus Inferi” is the first official video from Deathless Legacy’s fourth album “Rituals of Black Magic”. Highly marked with occult symbols and viewpoints, it represent a modern tribute of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “The Holy Mountain”, and Kenneth Anger’s “Lucifer Rising”. It also visually represents Friedrich Nietzsche’s moral idea of immorality proper of the Übermensch, and the journey a potential Übermensch has to face in order to actually become one.
The band’s journey depicts a girl who goes through a journey where she had to carry up on a mountain an heavy, human form load. The scenes of her labors alternate with those of a Yellow, hellish figure flanked by six black-masked ones. After having lost everything the girl used to know about her life and having discovered what she is carrying, she desperately runs, destroyed and in pain, with no more reference points.
The Yellow figure and the six black ones help her finding her answers. She joins their self-decomposition by accepting her menstrual blood to be the sickening communion of the Yellow figure, who takes off the mask and drives her mad. She becomes “one of them”, leaving every moral lessons of her past life behind her back.
“In Nomine Dominus Inferi” is not ancient Roman Latin, but a Medieval vernacular expression. It represents the voluntary distortion of the language of the Church of Rome that witches and warlocks used to fight back against their impositions, and horrible acts. It proudly represents the main core of the song, and it is meant to be that distinct.

WILLIE MEIKLE HAS A RAMSKULL
Ramskull is a new Scottish horror novel by William Meikle.
In this one you'll find a remote Scottish island, some baffled cops, bloody mayhem, a bar, an ancient Ram's skull, dank caves, some whisky, another bar, Oban, some mad monks, a lighthouse, and more whisky.
"It's a return home for me after a few years writing Newfoundland based stories, and it's a back-to-my-roots thing that runs in my head like a Hammer Horror, with blood so red it almost glows, screams so high they tear the top of your head off, and stoic rural workers doing what needs to be done against a terrible peril rearing up out of the past."
When Sergeant Dave Wilkes and his constable, John Campbell, are called out to a remote island, it is to investigate a simple case of sheep worrying, what they think is a routine job. But upon arrival at Leita, they find the community to be empty, the shops and houses lying quiet. Before too long, they find disturbing evidence of violence and mayhem.
