“A group of crime scene cleaners who struggle to escape a murder house. After becoming trapped by an ancient Nordic demon hell-bent on driving them insane, they must face their most personal regrets and fears through horrific hallucinations. As they uncover what truly happened to the murder victims, they struggle to escape their own deaths by finding and destroying pieces of a relic from Norse mythology that gives the demon power.”

Bobby Easley presents a new take on the work of horror master H.P. Lovecraft with H.P. Lovecraft’s Witch House, which was also released on DVD and Digital today, July 5th.
In the film…
“Graduate student Alice Gilman (Portia Chellelynn) is running from an abusive past. She seeks refuge in the infamous Hannah house; a historic home with an ominous past. Determined to prove the possibility of alternate dimensions, she unknowingly unlocks a gateway to unimaginable horror.
“Facing a series of bizarre and violent events, Alice is plagued by nightmarish dreams of these evil entities. Trapped between the 4th dimension and reality, the diabolical truth is revealed as Alice fights for her sanity and her very soul.”
Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Dreams in the Witch House”, Witch House promises to blur the boundaries between reality, dreams…and the beyond.
Danny Trejo stars in the monster movie The Prey: Legend of Karnoctus, coming to Digital on Thursday, July 7th. Eric and Matthew Hensman directed the retro creature feature.
In the 80s-style action/monster movie, “U.S. Soldiers on patrol in a war-torn Afghanistan become trapped in a cave after barely surviving a rebel ambush, as they search for a way out they are hunted down by a deadly creature the locals call KARNOCTUS!”
The brothers noted in the film’s Indiegogo campaign, “This is a true Indie-film effort with no studio support. The creation of the monster, principal photography, special FX, CGI, and some post-production were all done in-house… Literally in a garage in Anaheim, California. But we think you’ll be amazed at the big production feel that’s been achieved.”

The film was released theatrically in Taiwan in March and has been described as the “scariest Taiwanese film ever,” reports THR.
Inspired by a true story involving a family of cult worshippers in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the film was shot in a mockumentary style interspersed by found footage and actors breaking the fourth wall to address the audience. The IMDb synopsis heeds the following warning:
“This is a cursed video, it might contain certain risks to watch; For those who dare to follow, please solve the puzzle of my daughter’s curse with me.”
