Red Letter Entertainment, Inc. brings you the directorial debut from Rocky Gray (composer of The Barn, Killing Floor 2),two time Grammy winning musician and former drummer for Evanescence.

A new horror anthology in the vein of V/H/S/ and Creepshow
brings an ensemble cast together to spin twisted tales of the macabre. The film is Executive Produced by P.J. Starks, creator of the critically acclaimed Volumes of Blood franchise.


Story line:
A video tape given to a group of teens by a sinister trick or treater turns Halloween night into a living nightmare.

The film stars Jordan Phipps, Greg Fallon, Samantha Anderson, Taylor Aulbach, Darius White, Micah Patterson, Kirby Gocke, Star McCann, and Alivea Lafavor.

So when can we expect too see the finished project? Good question! 10/31/16 is set to be released around August 2017.

When Rocky and I first met, i knew he was the drummer for Evanescence, I also knew he was a huge horror fan, it was because that, that i pursued Rocky to join the staff of House of Tortured Souls. And what an addition he has been, graphics for the website, logo images, and last but by no means least - the opening and closing music for our podcast House of Tortured Souls Live. All of which we have had many compliments over, and we thank you, Rocky!!

I was in awe of the work Rocky had been doing with scores and soundtracks, but when he first mentioned to me about him making his own film, the upcoming 10/31/16, I’m pretty sure my reply text to him was, “FUUUCK YEA!!!!! Keep me posted. I’d be honored to support and help you out any way I can!”

When Rocky told me he had sent me the trailer and press release for 10/31/16, I was thrilled and couldn't wait to get home and check it out ! As most of you know, I am a huge fan of horror anthologies, so when Rocky mentioned that's what his film was, I was super stoked!

Be sure to check out 10/31/16 online:



Keep your eyes on 10/31/16 and on Houseoftorturedsouls.com for updates on the film and keep your ears open to House of Tortured Souls Live for the podcast with Rocky Gray.

A horror fan living the dream, give 'em hell, Rocky!

By John Roisland
Hey, everyone, welcome! And thank you all for joining us once again as your hosts of House of Tortured Souls Live – the hosts with the most John and Allen bring you all the horror news!

We have a big show this week as John and Allen welcome writers and stars of THE NIGHT WATCHMEN, Ken Arnold and Dan Deluca and costars Donald Imm and Dan Franko. The guys took the time to break away from their hectic schedule while in Atlanta for the premier of their film THE NIGHT WATCHMEN to tell us a bit about how the film originally came to be, the audience response to the film, and, of course, the future of THE NIGHT WATCHMEN.
John and Allen go over news issues ranging from film remakes THE CROW to the most recent updates on film director Robert Eggers, who has signed on to remake horror classic Nosferatu.
House of Tortured Souls Live also makes mention of the upcoming KING KONG film Skull Island as well as the already in the works sequel to box office smash DON’T BREATHE.
We pay our respects to the huge loss of musician/poet Leonard Cohen. And, on the flip side of music, make mention of Slayer’s own, Kerry King as he is joining the horror convention circuit.

Allen also gives his very heart felt thoughts to actress Shelly Duvall as she makes a public cry out for medical help with many physical and mental issues she has been fighting with for years.
So stick around and fill your ears with the sounds of horror at the House of Tortured Souls Live.
Keep It Evil…

House of Tortured Souls Live Welcomes Billy Pon

With Special Guest Billy Pon

By John Roisland, Stephanie Roisland, and Allen (Dixielord) Alberson

&npsp;

During the Billy Pon interview about a minute and a half of audio was garbled, and some bits lost. It was either cut the entire section, leave it or try and piece it together and possibly lose or misinterpret the questions and response so I decided to leave it as is. Apologies to Billy Pon.
