HORROR ART GALLERY ANNOUNCED!

FRIGHT-banner

B.O.T. presents

FRIGHT GALLERY

 A HORROR AND DARK PRESENTATION

September 16th, 2017

Mosaic Sound Collective, AUSTIN, TEXAS

Over 20 rooms of doom! Walk through the doorway into a maze of hallways and rooms as you experience the horror presented by amazing horror and dark artists who dabble in the unknown. Each artist has tales of terror to tell and visions of the dark side. Their displays of art will devour the walls of the maze in this most evil of galleries, Fright Gallery.

ART: In each room, you will find a world created by the artist to accompany their work. Lighting, music and decor will help you experience their world during your stay in their room of doom. Some artists will be offering their art for sale.

FILM: Visions of horror often find their way onto the big screen, so this outlet will be celebrated with a compliation of short horror films curated and presented by Garth Manor Cinema. The art installation of horror shorts will be shown on a loop in the main Auditorium. Experience hand-selected gems of gore and horror in short format. Take a seat and enjoy the horror in a dark and quiet enviornment.

LITERATURE: Most tales of terror start at the hands and minds of the literary artist. Take a journey into the minds of these writers in the Books of Blood room where horror and dark writers will offer their writings for sale for your horror-reading pleasure.

VENDORS: Within the maze you will find merchants with evil wares to buy. Clothing, accessories and art will grace their tables of terror.

Haunting music will be offered by specially selected DJs at the event, special horror scenes will be set up for photo opportunities and creature tour guides will help you work your way through the maze.

Over the years, the venue has been a juvenile hall, a convalescent home and a mental facility but is now the home of Mosaic Sound Collective. Mosaic is a a new innovative idea benefitting the music and art community of Austin. It is quite simply, a hive of musicians, artists, resources and services consolidated under one roof. The Mosaic campus will provide services, employment, training and education to musicians and the music community. Working together, united by a common cause, they endeavor to revitalize the Austin music community.  For the music community, by the music community. To learn more, please visit them at www.mosaicsoundcollective.com. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Mosaic to help them support our artistic community!

Please see our Our Events page here on the site and join the Facebook INVITE. Our Facebook invite will have the most up-to-date information. Submission info for artists, vendors and writers is on the Events page and the FB invite.

At the height of the 80s horror film era the power of the demon-drenched lyrics of heavy metal music helped to spawn the phenomena of Satanic Panic. While the parents prayed for our sins we reveled in all that was evil. A time of pure rebelilous innocence that may never be repeated. This night we will celebrate one of the greatest times of horror – when blood traveled effortlessly between film and music.

HELLter Skelter – Motley Crue Tribute band
MOB RULES – Dio Tribute Band
Judas And The Beast – Judas Priest & Iron Maiden Tribute Band

STALK US

Unknown

We’re as happy as a clown in a kid store for this weekend! Another great year soaking in all the blood at Texas Frightmare Weekend in Dallas. This will be their 12th year and is one of Texas’s biggest (perhaps the countries?) biggest horror conventions. Texas Frightmare Weekend (May 4-7) is being presented by Arrow Video  (media sponsored by Blumhouse). As usual their featured guests, panels, screenings and vendors are highly impressive.

TFW always has special showcases on some of your favorite horror movies. This year they will be featuring a special Fright Night panel with director Tom Holland, William Ragsdale, Chris Sarandon, Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys, Jonathan Stark and FX legend Steve Johnson. For you creature and Carpenter fans, you’ll enjoy the 35th anniversary panel for The Thing, featuring Keith David, Wilford Brimley, Thomas Waites and Dean Cundey. And for you hill-hiding mutants, check out the 40th anniversary panel of the The Hills Have Eyes featuring Dee Wallace and Michael Berryman. Not to mention a Ted Raimi Q&A and a secret movie from Charles Band and Full Moon Pictures. Both are bound to be loads of fun. Many, many more cool panels and horror celebs will grace the event — too many to list here — BUT… I’ve saved the best for last… are you ready?…. Dario “f’n” Argento! Yup. I’m pretty sure this is one of his first US appearances in quite awhile, so this is a must for your giallo fans. He will be there celebrating the 40th anniversary of Suspiria with Barbara Magnolfi, Stefania Casini and Claudio Simonetti. Like I mentioned before, there is way too much to list here, so head over to the site for the full schedule and guests. And don’t forget to bring some dollies to load out some killer horror merch available from the vendors and artists selling their bloody hearts out at the convention.

instagram-glyphWe’ll be there as usual haunting the aisles and seeing what horror fun we can get into. Expect to hear the re-cap of the convention on our May podcast episode sometime during the week of May 15th — including a live Hammered Horror and another Elevator Ambush. If you want to live vicariously through us while we’re at TFW, follow us on the Instragrams. Several of us will be logged in showing you pics and video of the weekend. If you’re planning on heading out, find us and say Hi. We promise we won’t bite… too hard.

STREAMING SCREAMS: HORROR & EXPLOITATION

UnknownShould you Shudder? Well, the short answer is yes. The long answer is yes, but how weird are you?

So here’s the thing about Shudder. Although it isn’t the perfect streaming site, it does give us horror fans an expanded selection of movies, shorts and even series when compared with Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon. There is some exclusive content, and Shudder does get some amazing new films, but where the site really excels in my opinion is the amount and range of the classic content. Interesting Euro and Asian films, goofy 80’s nonsense, and most importantly a wide selection of classics are all available to watch again or discover for the first time. Shudder is a great place to do your homework.

Shudder also features some very in depth collections, but I was particularly fond of the curated content. There have been recommended films by “Curators”, Joe Dante, Barbara Crampton, Robert Eggers, Fred Dekker and more filmmakers or famous fans of horror. Although the content is obviously constrained by what Shudder has available, it is neat when picking a movie to find out what the guy that directed The Witch would watch. Being that Shudder is also a sponsor for Fantastic Fest, there is a collection of films available that screened at what is widely regarded as the premiere genre fest in the nation, if not the entire world.  There is also a Midnight at Sundance collection, which collects films that screened, of course, in the Midnight slot at Sundance.

Right, so buy Shudder, I guess. Bunch of cool stuff on there, it’s only like 5 bucks a month which I imagine most of us can afford. There are a few downsides however. One is that if you don’t have Android, Roku or Apple TV, at the time of this writing, Shudder didn’t have apps for Playstation or Xbox. The other is that although the content is pretty varied and covers a lot of bases, they are pretty safe bases. (I may have just accidentally made a baseball pun.) If you’re like me and looking for stuff that is really out there, you have to look elsewhere…

Stay tuned for dramatic transition.. 

You guys… I looked elsewhere and I found this: Exploitation.TV. The site is not that easy to navigate.  It costs more than Shudder, and it only has apps for Chromecast or Roku. It’s categories are pretty basic (comedy, horror, thriller, etc.) BUT, Exploitation.TV has some absolutely incredible content. As you may have gleaned from its name, Exploitation.TV is all about cult oddities and grindhouse era, underground weirdness. Plenty of sex comedies, far-out horror, arthouse sex documentaries, erotic sci fi, and over the top gory martial arts action.Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 7.24.12 PM

What is important and great about the team at Exploitation.TV is that they are trying to preserve content that quite simply no one else gives a shit about. Most of these movies would be lost forever if not for the work and dedication of people like them. If you’re looking to expand your film horizons, check out Exploitation.TV and strap in.  It’s gonna get weird.
