    Vandalism Reaching Iconic Ghost Town

    Vandalism Reaching Iconic Ghost Town

    Vandalism and theft has reached this small iconic ghost town just about an hour outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. In Nevada sets Nelson's Ghost Town, an eclectic spot to photograph and see some very unique items. Here you will find two planes that were crashed and now are being preserved, one with its tail up, and another missing an entire wing. You'll also find lots of old cars and some unique buses or conversions along with some interesting buildings. These buildings are homes to even more eclectic and unique items and rooms which are fun to see and great for photography. The trade of here is that you pay to visit the property since it is private and you must be aware at all times about rattlesnakes that are indigenous to the area. Because of these unique items and scenery, Nelson has been a popular spot to shoot music videos (Journey has been one) and movies. Now sadly, this beautiful location has been reduced in size because of vandalism and theft.

         Why do we love Horror?

    Why do we love Horror?

    Pulse racing, heart pounding. You lay awake, your thoughts racing. Your stomach flutters uneasily. In any other circumstance, you’d be worried about your symptoms; yet these are all things we can look forward to after watching a particularly good horror film. We (almost) all love a good scare, but why is that? What blurs the lines between fear and entertainment? We like watching horror films simply because it's entertaining. It acts as a means to fend off boredom. Scary movies are something you either really love or avoid at all costs. Logically, we should be running away from things that induce fear. But horror movies have a way of drawing a lot of people in. It's a little confusing if you stop and think about it, but horror entertainment is a very popular genre. According to research and experts, there are a few different reasons behind why people like scary movies. people watch scary movies for three main reasons: tension, relevance, and unreal ism. For some, watching scary movies can be an entire experience due to the mystery and the shock. Others who are drawn to it due to "relevance," find elements in the movie that they can relate to. Those who like horror due to its "unreal ism" enjoy it because they know for a fact that it's all fake anyway. For them, it's just pure entertainment and fun.

    HORROR  MOVIES: IS THE FRANCHISE DYING? OR, MAKING A KILLING?

    HORROR MOVIES: IS THE FRANCHISE DYING? OR, MAKING A KILLING?

    Perhaps, one of the most popular genres in The film industry is HORROR movies. Whether it’s the new faces of whore or classic characters being remade for audiences, it’s not hard to see why. In the past couple of years there have been new faces of her added to the genre as well as remakes of classic movies. However, Do they live up to their predecessors? Personally one of my mottos is “Life’s no fun without a good scare!” a line that pays homage to Tim Burton’s 1993 Classic Film THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, but I suppose you might say, “That’s a Ghost of a different color.”

    COVID Crisis Wreaks Havoc On Upcoming Horror Film Release Date 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'

    The writer, director, and producer of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' has informed us of a delayed date for the film release. After preparing for a release date of June 2, 2020 to all major digital platforms and cable, the film release has been postponed until later in the month. While an exact date has not yet been confirmed between Gravitas Ventures and 3rd Fathom Films, fans should anticipate the film to be available late June or early July. The film had to abandon theaters earlier this year after businesses began to shut down due to the severity of the Coronavirus pandemic. It's unfortunate to announce that the film is being affected by yet another setback under the constantly changing circumstances.
