Your Nightmares Come True

This is amazing! Setup hidden cameras in a beautifully dilapidated abandoned house, wait for camera people to show up to take photos of the beautiful decay, then BOOM, send in the Owl Man.

It's great to see these authentic reactions to a horror movie scenario.

Apparently this was promotional material for a film called "Lord of Tears". Sounds good, the trailer looks creepy enough too. I'll have to check it out.

In related horror flick news, I watched "Frankenstein's Army" last night. Longtime residents of the internet amazing teaser trailer for "Worst Case Scenario" that made the rounds a few years ago (2004 I think!). The project never came to fruition, but the special FX man Richard Raaphorst who directed it went on to produce this

"Frankenstein's Army" follows a small group of Soviet soldiers deep in German territory, who stumble upon a quaint little village, containing quaint a little subteranean laboratpory, run by a quaint little Nazi scientist bearing the proud heritage of the quaint little Frankenstein family line.
It's one of the best horror movies I've seen in recent memory.  Flawed yet believable, even likeable, characters;  wonderful unsettling atmosphere;  and seriously beautiful cinematography. I definitely recommend a viewing for any horror fan!



  1. Owl Man is so bloody creepy. I would have thrown something I think. Their reactions were brilliant.

    The Lord of Tears trailer has so much to see, I had to play it twice and the Frankenstein's Army trailer....I couldn't tear my eyes away from the screen.....I don't think I'd watch the film alone though.

  2. Frankenstein's Army has become a new favorite. I remember coming across the teaser a few years back - I was doing research on Nazi propaganda for a history class project on WWII, and came across the faux-footage of the grave-robberies; scared the hell out of me! And when the movie itself came out, I was not disappointed. The Zom-bots are some of the most memorable monsters to have been created in recent years. And no CGI!

  3. Boy, these videos were brilliant! Especially the first two. The Owlman is my kind of bogeyman, I love owls and I find them deliciously creepy. Of course they are at the basis of many ghost stories, it is only fair they become ghosts/monsters themselves. I understand it is based on a... urban legend? Or a town legend. Nothing is nearly as scary a setting as British countryside. I really need to see this movie. And is it only me or does the Owlman looks vaguely like Cthulhu?

    Frankenstein's Army looks very gore, less my kind of movie, but it seems fascinating nevertheless. But Frankenstein was Swiss German?
