Some plugs for some nice chaps

The lovely man and rather good director Phil Messerer of Thicker than Water fame – the Vampire Diaries moniker has been dropped due to a pesky TV series – has been in touch to say that he is in discussion with a DVD distributor.

Underbelly Blues is to feature an ensemble cast of 26 and with Phil at the helm it has a lot of potential. It has a homepage here. It also has a fundraising project on

I have also been contacted by Ross Tipograph who, you may remember, did a Guest Review a short while ago. He tells me that Star Costumes dot com have an internet proposition for all horror readers -- they're offering $1,000 to any 18+ students currently in school (undergrad, graduate and I presume US only) working towards entering the horror industry. Interested: fill out the application on this link and complete the short essay with a unique point of view on why the horror genre is so important to you.
