About Puppet Master X: Axis Rising

Directed by series creator Charles Band, Puppet Master X: Axis Rising is the tenth film in Full Moon’s most famous and enduring franchise and welcomes the return of many classic puppet characters, including the cult horror icon, Blade. It is a direct follow-up to the series’ previous entry, Puppet Master: Axis of Evil, which was shot in Guangzhou, China. Set in Los Angeles during World War II, Puppet Master X: Axis Rising boasts an impressive cast, a generous budget, gorgeous locations, heart-pounding action and spectacular effects.
About Reel Evil
Three struggling filmmakers finally catch a break when they are hired to shoot a ‘making-of’ documentary for a studio movie. But their dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when they explore the haunted location and capture an unspeakable fear on film.
Employing found-footage techniques, Reel Evil delves into a new brand of terror for Full Moon. Starring Jessica Morris (The Dead Want Women, Dangerous Worry Dolls) and directed by Danny Draven, the spine-chilling film is slated for release on December 4th.
About Killjoy Goes to Hell
The demon clown Killjoy is on trial in Hell! Having failed in his last outing to claim his victim’s soul, he must face the devil himself in Hell’s courtroom and prove that he’s evil and worthy of a demon. His only hope is the testimony of his last victim and a trial by combat. Killjoy’s murderous minions Batty Boop, Punchy, and Freakshow plot a daring rescue attempt, but if they fail, Killjoy is damned to oblivion, never to return!
Starring Trent Haaga as the eponymous clown, Killjoy Goes to Hell is the series’ fourth installment, and the second entry that has been helmed by the imaginative writing and direction of John Lechago. Killjoy Goes to Hell features a spastic, witty script that reunites the former cast with dazzling practical and digital effects in a film that’s sure to make a killing.
About The Dead Want Women
The world’s biggest female silent movie star, Rose Pettigrew (JEAN LOUISE O’SULLIVAN), goes on a killing spree when she loses her studio contract, murdering her friends and co-stars before taking her own life. Rose’s mansion has stood empty for decades, but when two realtors Reese (JESSICA MORRIS) and Danni (ARIANA MADIX) buy the house to remodel and sell it, they discover that there are more than skeletons in the closets. Haunted by the ghosts of a time long ago, the girls quickly find that they have been cast in a nightmare that will never end.
A colorful cast of characters inhabit this horrific homage to the glamorous Hollywood culture of yesterday. Starring Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), and rising star Jean Louise O’Sullivan (Puppet Master X: Axis Rising), The Dead Want Women is a roller coaster of haunting visuals, mesmerizing performances and dark desires.
About Zombies Vs. Strippers
Spider has been losing money on his strip club for years. Now it’s finally getting the traffic he’s always wanted… unfortunately, most of his patrons are undead. With a sudden outbreak of the zombie virus, Vanilla, Bambi, and Sugar Hills deal with the disaster the way only a stripper can.
Finding wide success with Red Box, Zombies Vs. Strippers is a cult film with something for everyone. Marking the directorial debut of Alex Nicolau (son of Subspecies director, Ted Nicolau), blood and braziers go flying, in this exciting horror-comedy.
