Pets of the Week April 6, 2015

A bundle of bubbly bliss, Bobby has pep in his step. This 10-month-old blonde Terrier mix can leap and hop as high as any bunny and would love to help your family hunt for eggs every Easter holiday. He is a knee-high, blonde pup who’s a great size for a home big or small. Bobby is very good with other dogs and can keep even the biggest playmate on its toes. Give him a chance to leap into your arms and you’ll see how quickly he can complete your heart. Bobby does well with children, but his acrobatic hijinks make him more suitable for older, more active children. Bobby would also be a great match for families looking to get out and about together, as he would thrive on hiking, swimming, and dog sports like agility. Come let Bobby spring into your life and get a fresh start this season!

She’s so fancy and she already knows that life is all about the company you keep. Fancy is a very petite feline and at 2 years old will likely stay smaller-sized throughout her life. Fancy has a short silver hued coat with beautifully placed white highlights. She has been a dream inside, with perfect indoor etiquette and litterbox manners that are almost too good to be true (almost). Fancy does prefer the life of leisure and is best suited for an indoor home that she can grace with her charms. She loves to sit and cuddle, and will happily spend the whole day in your lap or by your side. Come see this splendid kitty cat today and add I little something special to your home.

Cold Days by Jim Butcher is now available

Cold Days by Jim Butcher is now available. Cold Days is the 14th book in the Dresden Files series of Urban Fantasy novels set in Chicago featuring Harry Dresden.

After the events of Changes and Ghost Story, I could hardly wait to see where Jim Butcher was going to take Harry and company. This book was not a disappointment. I love how everything builds on the previous novels. It truly gives a grand scope to the worlds of these novels. While this is probably not the best book to start reading from the Dresden series, you can pick up enough from context to get what is going on. For those of us reading since book one, the layering of elements and payoff is not something you see a lot of anymore.

Here there be spoilers…..


Myctophobia begins Fundraising and Pre-Production

Bryan Wolford, from the Drunken Zombie Podcast and director of the short Whispers (see it on youtube) is preparing a new horror short for your entertainment. Thought I was going for a Cryptkeeper line like Inter-tainment, didn’t you? :) Check out the press release below. But more importantly, help get this project off the ground: – Donate now.

“Freakwolf Productions is happy to announce that their upcoming short film Myctophobia begins production in February as part of the short film compilation The Collective Volume 4. The theme of all the films on The Collective Volume 4 is emotions. Writer/Director Bryan Wolford was given Fear and while researching different phobias Bryan settled on Myctophobia which is labeled as a Fear of Darkness. He then crafted a story about Kelly who has a fear of the dark and while at home by herself the lights go out. She soon finds herself bombarded by sights and sounds that only strengthen her fear of the dark. Is all of it really happening or only in her head? The Collective Volume 4 is scheduled to premiere at the
Days Of The Dead convention ( on July 6th -July 8th in Indianapolis, Indiana.

With Myctophobia we want to bring a great atmospheric story to your screen. Sure blood and guts are fun sometimes but we want our viewers to feel Kelly’s dread in their stomachs. We will prove that you don’t need a big budget to produce  big scares. We want to bring that fear of darkness to life in front of your eyes and make you start to worry when you shut your lights off at night that you get a small pit in your stomach and try to convince yourself that the noise you just heard  was only the cat in the living room. Wait . . . do you even have a cat?

The project is currently fund raising through Indie Go Go in the hopes of raising a small amount of money to make sure the cast and crew gets a little pocket change out of the experience and to help pay for some special effects for the film. All of the filming with be done over a weekend in late February thus keeping the costs low. Anyone can donate to the project through the Indie Go Go page and receive incentives like signed copies of The Collective Volume 4, an invite to the cast and crew screening, and a cast and crew exclusive t-shirt. Info for donations can be found at IndieGoGo.Com/Myctophobia.

The main character of Kelly will be played by Kitsie Duncan. Kitsie has gained a dedicated following in the Indiana horror scene as a scream queen in numerous horror films and helps her husband Chris Jay in a producer role for their production company Darkrider Studios ( which produces their own films as well as providing multiple media services. She was a producer and actress in the film Lethal Obsession which has made the rounds at
horror film festivals and horror conventions across the country.”

Drunken Zombie Film Festival Open For Submissions

The guys behind the Drunken Zombie Film Festival are happy to announce that we are currently accepting submissions for our film festival taking place on November 4th and 5th at the Peoria Theater in Peoria, IL.  This is the Fourth Annual Drunken Zombie Film Festival and it just keeps getting bigger ever year.

In the past we’ve had the pleasure of hosting world premieres for movies like Zombie Apocalypse, Outpost Doom, and Night Of The Bongface II.  In addition to that we’ve been very happy to show Night Of The Living Dead: Reanimated, the Stephen King adaptation Everything’s Eventual, the chilling documentary Feast Of The Assumption: the BTK Killer and the Otero Family Murders, and loads of awesome short films such as the Adrienne Barbeau starring Alice Jacobs Is Dead.

Every year we try to showcase some of the best low/no budget horror feature films that our audience may have not seen outside of our festival.  Luckily many of our screened films end up going on to gain distribution and are seen by people all over the world.

So if you have a horror film/short/documentary/music video that you’d like to get the word out about please feel free to stop by our website at and look at how to submit to our film festival.  The thing that makes us stand out is that we don’t charge an entry fee.  Our goal isn’t to make money off this film festival but to spread the word about independent horror films.  You shouldn’t have to pay someone to just go on to hope your film made the cut.  We’re all about giving filmmakers a place to showcase their work not to make a huge profit before the film festival even starts.

We’re hoping you will join us in making this year our biggest year yet.  We have many surprises we’re starting to plan out already and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.  Attached is our film festival poster for this year that hasn’t been publically released yet so you get to be one of the first people to see it! Submissions are open until August 31st. (more…)
