Horror Realm, in association with In Person Productions, is pleased to launch Pittsburgh’s Horror Realm & Pop Expo on July 24-26, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh West Green Tree.

 

The three day convention/expo brings the familiar, comfortable and affordable vibe that Horror Realm has built over the last seven years while expanding to offer guests from the pop culture arena.

 

Our March show at the new venue brought in double the attendance of previous spring shows and was the second highest attended show since we began in 2009.  We expect this upward trend to continue in July with anticipated attendance of 1,500 to 2,000 due to higher profile guests, more accessible location and more media coverage/reach.

 

The guest list is still being developed but the following have been confirmed:

  • Ryan Hurst – portrayed Harry “Opie” Winston for four years on the FX hit television series “Sons of Anarchy”.  Currently appearing on A&E’s series “Bates Motel”
  • Andre Gower – The Monster Squad
  • Erin Murphy – Bewitched
  • Lynn Lowry –The Crazies, Shivers
  • Ani-Mia – professional cosplayer and model
  • Caroll Spinney – artist and puppeteer most famous for playing Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street
  • David Newell – Pittsburgh’s lovable Speedy Delivery man Mr. McFeely from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood

 

We are now accepting reservations for dealers.  If you wish to exhibit, please return the attached form with payment as soon as possible.  Spots will not be held without payment.  We sold out in March do expect to sell out again.

 

Please note that this is our final show of 2015.  There will not be a show in August this year.

 

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@horrorrealmcon.com.

 

Thank you for your support!

North Woods: A Motion Picture of Unrelenting Terror

0

Here’s a summary of the film:

In the vein of such terrifying films as Phantasm (1979), The Evil Dead (1981) & The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), comes psychotic motion picture of unrelenting terror! A horror film set in modern times, but is shot, stylized & paced like a film straight from the 70’s & 80’s. But despite its’ sense of nostalgic familiarity, it flips many of the old tropes & cliches on their heads & will keep you on the edge of your seat, not knowing what is bound to happen next…

From within the woods, a blood splattered young man, John Prescott, runs out in front of a car, terrified and muttering gibberish. Enter Dr. Pamela Alley, an esteemed psychiatrist, and Detective Morris, her contact & partner from the local police force, who have just been assigned the boy’s case. As the teen begins telling his diabolical tale of a local weekend vacation gone horribly wrong, it becomes clear that nothing is ever what it seems when a very troubled substitute teacher, with a webbed past of nightmares, emerges as the center of the proceedings. What keys does she hold to the nearly phantasmic events surrounding the area for the last several years?

When it comes to the woods in Brahams County… sometimes digging for answers digs your grave… …And if you go in… you won’t come out.

Featuring legendary Indie Horror/B-Movie scream queen talents of Debbie Rochon & Lynn Lowry, North Woods guarantees you an authentic visceral yet surreal experience, straight from the era where Grindhouse Slashers & Drive-in Horror relentlessly ruled the cinemas!

We are about 75% of the way through making it, but are currently running an IndieGoGo campaign for the film due to hitting a financial snag. We are in the last week of the campaign & we are just trying to raise $5500 so we can finally finish the movie, as production is currently in hiatus, and we need help in getting the word out there, because all we want to do is share this film with the rest of the world. The campaign is currently set to end on December 2nd & has currently raised $2,039.

Here is the link to our IndieGoGo campaign: igg.me/at/NorthWoods2015Film
You can also find our poster art, as well as a bunch of stills from the film, under the Gallery tab of our IndieGoGo campaign too.

We’re also offering all of these fantastic perks through the campaign(here’s a list of all of the stuff we are offering):

*3% of Film’s Profits *Executive Producer Credit on Film *Invitation to Film Premiere *Exclusive Film Prop (Limited Quantities Available) *Reproduction Prop *Exclusive CD Edition of Film Soundtrack *MP3 Version of Film Soundtrack *Signed 2-Disc DVD Edition of Film with Personalized Video Message *Special 2-Disc DVD Edition of Film *1-Disc DVD Edition of Film *Storyboards *Cast & Crew Signed Official Film Poster *Official Film Poster *Exclusive Access to Behind-the-Scenes Material & Sneak Peek Clips *Personalized Autographed Photos From BOTH Debbie Rochon & Lynn Lowry! *Exclusive Access to Online Screener of Film *Personalized Autographed Photo From YOUR CHOICE of either Debbie Rochon or Lynn Lowry! *Set of 4 Lobby Cards *Receive Special Thanks in End Credits *Honorary Certificate *Honorable Mention on the film’s Facebook & YouTube page.

One perk in particular that I think would catch peoples’ interest is this one.

It is called Lucky 13! For only mere $13, it gets you all of this:

*Personalized Autographed Photos From BOTH Debbie Rochon & Lynn Lowry! *Exclusive Access to Online Screener of Film *Set of 4 Lobby Cards *Receive Special Thanks in End Credits *Honorary Certificate *Honorable Mention on the film’s Facebook & YouTube page.

That is a deal that you cannot beat! You have to pay WAY MORE at a convention to even get an autographed photo from just one of them!!

In fact, we will be doing a Black Friday special where all perks $20 & up are going to be 40% off.

Now, I know this is a tall order, but I wanted to ask if you could help us out by sharing the news on the site, so that way we can increase our chances of finishing this film and be able to share it with everyone, including you. If you are not able to, I do understand & hope that you at least enjoyed what you saw & read. Even if you could write back a reply to let us know what you think, that would be appreciated too.

“A Serial Killer Fever Dream!”

 

The famous Leopold and Loeb ransom and murder case is being brought to the screen with The Divine Tragedies. This twisted tale of stalking, kidnapping and violent murder has been re-envisioned by director and writer Jose Prendes (The Haunting of Whaley House). A true tale of wits, the production team, including brothers and producers James and Jon Kondelik, are pleased to announce the attachment of actors Lynn Lowry and Sean Whalen to their terrifying tale. Actor Ken Foree has already announced his participation in the film, with more famous horror personalities set to be included soon.

 

The Leopold and Loeb murder case has been sensationalized in film previously. Alfred Hitchcock used this famous trial in his famous thriller Rope (1948). And, Prendes has his own interpretation of the case. In the story of The Divine Tragedies, Charles (Graham Denman) and his half-brother Thomas (Jon Kondelik) concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. This game will eventually lead to murder. And when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters their lives they finally find the perfect girl for their first kill. But, problems arise when they quickly discover that Detective Homer Gaul (Ken Foree) is hot on their trail.

 

Fans of horror will recognize both Sean Whalen and Lynn Lowry from previous horror roles. Sean Whalen has had appearances in such tales as Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs (1991) and more recently in Hatchet 3 (2013). Director Prendes says of Sean and his character: “I wrote this really bizarre and sleazy character, who just so happened to have some endearing qualities and I always had Sean in mind for it.” As well, actress Lynn Lowry has appeared in dozens of horror titles. Her most prominent roles include The Crazies (1973, 2010) and Cat People (1982). Lowry has had several recent appearances in the horror genre and she has collaborated with Prendes previously in The Haunting of Whaley House (2012). Prendes says of Lowry: “Lynn is simply wonderful. She is the kind of actor that draws us in and makes us care. She easily changes the dynamic of a scene. I am honoured to be working with one of my favourite actresses again.” The production crew behind The Divine Tragedies is proud to bring Sean Whalen and Lynn Lowry on board one of this year’s most thrilling murder tales – The Divine Tragedies!
