Hot Topic

I have a great interest in today's post as I'm a long-time fan of horror maestros: Midnight Syndicate. They have provided many a soundtrack to my Halloween haunts in years past, and now they are gearing up for their first feature film release: 'THE DEAD MATTER.'

The angle that I find most interesting is that first-time director, Edward Douglas, has opted to distribute the movie himself with help from popular goth/teen retail chain Hot Topic. A novel approach that may pay off huge for the film in the long run. Here's the official synopsis of the film:

THE DEAD MATTER tells the story of a relic with occult powers that falls into the hands of a grief-stricken young woman, whose desire to reconnect with her dead brother draws her into the supernatural world of vampirism and the living dead.

Midnight Syndicate's film stars horror legend Tom Savini, as well as Andrew Divoff, Jason Carter and C.B. Spencer. Below is the link for the official trailer - check it out and see what you think. THE DEAD MATTER is slated for a June 30th release date...check back here for more info on the release of this intriguing independent film as the big day approaches!
