Adam Green Needs Your Help to Resurrect 'Scary Sleepover'

Writer/director Adam Green is known for films like Chillerama, Frozen, Grace and of course, the Hatchet series, but some of his most personal work comes in the form of his shorts and original series. One of his more intimate original series was called Scary Sleepover.

Adam would invite guests to have a sleepover and they would get up to silly antics that made the audience laugh, but they would also have serious discussions about careers and real fears. Some of his past guests include Slash, Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, the late Sid Haig and many more.

The series ran from 2015 to 2017 with full length episodes running on ariescope.com and shorter versions being posted to the Ariescope YouTube channel.

To the delight of Sleepover fans, Green has decided to resurrect the series. Unlike other creators, he is not rebooting it for selfish reasons. He decided to bring it back after reading an article by a fan describing how Adam and the series helped him through depression. The article is called “Adam Green Saved My Life” and was posted on NightmareNostalgia.com by Landon Evanson (read Landon’s incredible article HERE). Two months after reading the article, Green lost colleague and friend Sid Haig.

Your help is needed to bring back Scary Sleepover. The series was free for fans to watch, and that can get pretty pricey; instead of charging fans per episode, Green has launched an Indiegogo campaign. He has set a budget of $5,000 per episode, so every $5,000 raised is a new episode.

The Holidays Are About to Get Bloodier with Slasher Film’Hanukkah’

What do you get when you combine religion, a sacred holiday, a serial killer and a pissed off son with extremist views and a vendetta? ‘Hanukkah‘, a brand new holiday slasher film, “A Torah-fying new tale of horah.”

HAN-MAIN-770x472

Hanukkah is written and directed by Eben McGarr and stars Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), Nick Principe (Laid To Rest) and J.D. Kaye (Beyond Polaris).

What is the story?

Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hanukiller. In 1983, Judah terrorized NY for seven nights and was preparing to sacrifice his eight year old son, Obediah, on the eighth night. Judah was convinced it was God’s will, like Abraham and Isaac, to sacrifice his only son to God. Luckily for Obediah, police tracked Judah down and stopped the sacrifice, but Judah was gunned down in the process. Warped by hatred with no guidance, Obediah Lazarus becomes a religious extremist, intolerant of non-Jews, “bad Jews”, and those he perceives to be enemies of the Jewish faith. He is about to unleash eight nights of horror. A group of Jewish teens are getting ready to party for the holidays, but are in for a Festival of Frights. With the help of a wise Rabbi, they deduce that the murder victims have violated Judaic law and that their only chance at survival is to embrace their faith.

Hanukkah is said to be currently filming, so no “official trailer” has been released, but there is a small teaser available for your viewing pleasure.
