Greetings, all. It’s Ambush Bug with some more horror news—bite size, just how you zombies like it!
Now playing on NUHO: THE BATTERY and COLDWATER!The New Hollywood Online Film Festival will be playing one excellent horror film which I’ve seen (THE BATTERY – reviewed here) and another I haven’t seen but heard good things about (COLDWATER). Here’s the official synopsis of both;
THE BATTERY is a zombie thriller that chronicles the horrific journey two former baseball players face as they attempt to battle the undead in rural New England.
CODLWATER is about a young man recovering from an accident is offered the seemingly ideal quiet, recuperative housesitting opportunity from a friend. But as evening darkness approaches it begins to appear as though he is not alone in the house, or in ColdWater Canyon.
Both films are available to be seen in an online screening room for a small fee until February 28th!
These trailers are not MUCK-ing around!The folks behind the upcoming film MUCK have released a pair of Ultra HD trailers teasing us even more for this upcoming film described as;
MUCK brings back old school horror with "cutting edge" Ultra HD technology. Maybe a bad choice of words for the kids caught in the marsh. Filled with practical effects and incredible stunts without any CGI, MUCK is a dark and twisted 80s throwback that comes complete with the scary and sexy one-two punch of horror legend Kane Hodder and Playboy Playmate of the Year Jaclyn Swedberg.

And here’s the other one…
LAZURUS to rise soon!!Origin Releasing will be releasing LAZARUS: DAY OF THE LIVING DEAD soon on DVD, digital download, and Video On Demand. The official synopsis reads;
Lazarus revolves around the character of George Lazarus (Ray Capuana), an insurance investigator who schedules routine interviews with twelve employees of the Deadly Sin Cigarette Company upon the receipt of a rather suspicious insurance claim. In the process, he learns that all twelve had recently been fired for being sick at the job, and then subsequently and without a trace, they disappeared. Two weeks later, with Lazarus now a missing person, his heart-sick fiancée Bethany Loomis (Natalie Victoria) and Chip (Kevin Franklin) undertake the task of finding him. While retracing his steps, they learn that what was initially regarded as a simple fraud investigation case may actually be the beginning of the end of the human race. Set in Hollywood in 1957, the film also stars Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night), Brooke Lewis (iMurders), Josh Hammond (Jeepers Creepers 2), James Duval (Sushi Girl), Brian Andrews (Halloween), Janet Tracy Keijser (House on Haunted Hill), Kenneth J. Hall (The Puppet Master), Krista Grotte and Taylor Morgan Lewis.
