New Indiegogo project from Award Winning Short Filmmaker Emma Dark, SALIENT MINUS TEN !
SALIENT MINUS TEN is about Adam Harper, an average man. And on an average day he suddenly finds himself catapulted into the strangest, reality changing game… A game of time and chance, where the stakes are a matter of life and death.
Emma is a wonderfully talented writer & actress of the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genre.
Her previous short film, SEIZE THE NIGHT, was a success on the short film circuit and online release. An amazing vampire film that has her kicking ass as a vampire trying to survive being hunted by her own coven and the werewolf packs and she’s also wanting revenge..
This is the start of N.L. Munn’s DEMENTED VISION series. SHADOWS was given a BEST IN BLOOD award by Horror Addicts!
AMAZON Synopsis: “On a blustery night, a group of strangers are brought together by a mysterious horror author. Follow the group down a rabbit hole of twisted terror as they learn about worlds beyond imagination. Reality and fantasy collide, culminating in twists, turns, and visuals that can’t be missed.”
It’s a wild and terrifying read full of very descriptive visual style of creatures and places that can be found in the depths of madness, terror and pure evil in the darkness of ones’ nightmares.
Nathanael walks you on a tour that starts into the unknown and then the world drops out from under your feet and you don’t know if you will make it back to the safety of your room, until you get to the end. The visual images he describes, you can’t help but be fascinated by their beauty and repugnance.
I highly recommend that you buy this book and let yourself take this journey into the depths of darkness and nightmares. You will enjoy it!
I’m sorry that i haven’t been podcasting the last couple of weeks..
as the daytime caregiver for my mother with frontal temporal dementia, you have to take it one day at a time with anything.. and sometimes my podcasting gets put on hold..
my baby sister who lives in Florida came out for a week long visit, i had to drop everything and work at cleaning up my Mom’s room for Liz to stay in, it was an all day project just picking up stuff that Mom had hidden around and under the bed and vacuuming under and around the bed, which hadn’t been done in months.. Mom is a hoarder and likes to have her room crowded with items that normally get thrown in the trash or put away in a closet somewhere and she used to hide food in her bed.. Dad just couldn’t do this on his own, so i had to help.. Amazingly enough Mom didn’t get mad when we were cleaning up her room a bit, she just watched.. so that took up all my time that i couldn’t make it to podcast. Then the next Thursday was the last day Liz was here so we were all chatting about what to do for the last day before she flew back to Florida.. it was an all afternoon event of Liz driving around town stopping at various stores and we had brought home pizza for the family and then later went for some frozen yogurt… Of course, Mom would glare at me and my other sister for intruding, so we would go to our house..
Life sometimes just gets in the way of podcasting and i can’t make promises of doing better, i’m pretty much a slave to my Mom’s dementia and that’s how it is until she’s done… but i will still try..
This week on Indie Spotlight Monday, we look at Cain Hill. I found this one interesting, because this is promising a high production value, for a low budget. Film making is getting better these days, and they are only asking for a modest sum of 10,000 quid. I love the perks, as well. While some projects you have to give 500 or more to see your name in the credits, this one only requires 20 pounds (or about 27 dollars US). That’s a great deal, people! Anyways, check this project out, I love the premise, and the promises the film makers are telling us.
Plot from their Indiegogo:
When a group of filmmakers decide to investigate an abandoned Asylum famed for its mysterious disappearances they soon discover the truth is far more horrific than they could have ever imagined.
Micheal James Dean has a hit on his hands, promising to bring back the tension we loved in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, and Nightmare on Elm Street. Check it out, and please donate to this project.
VOICES IN THE DARKNESS, independent horror short film project from Cynthia Pictures and Storm Moon Productions, written by Adam J. Morgan & Pippa Alice Stephens. They are getting ready to do their crowdfunding page to raise monies to make this film. Another intriguing film project from the UK that needs our help in making it a reality.
“When the voices inside are as loud as those outside.”
‘Voices in the Darkness’ is the story of life in a British mental institution in the 1940s. The cast is small but developed, and the locations are powerful yet limited. With no major stunts or need for large special effects, ‘Voices in the Darkness’ will be made with a relatively limited budget.
It tells the tale of Nurse Jean Wood who, in her late 20s, is working as a Nurse in Winter Hill Asylum, in Gloucester, England. Nurse Wood is being investigated by the Board of Control for some suspicious deaths that she had been present during that time. Is she responsible or is she involved?
‘Voices’ will be the fourth film produced by Cynthia Pictures; following in the steps of ‘Rosemary’ and ‘The Life of Cynthia’ and the soon to be completed ‘Martha’.
Screenplay Written by Adam J Morgan & Pippa Alice Stephens.

The month of June has not been that great for EMZT Radio. So, I am taking a moment or two to explain what is going on. Bane has a family issue, and please keep her in your thoughts, she’s going through a VERY rough time. To respect her privacy, I won’t go to detail here, but if she wants to talk with you about it, you can ask her.
As for me, June is never an easy time. The day after Father’s Day is the remembrance of my best friend’s suicide. It’s never been easy for me, even 14 years later. It still hurts, and that wound is very slow to heal. So, there are times where I am beyond depressed, this mixed in with bipolar disorder is never a good mix. There comes times where I don’t even want to be alive. It’s an every day struggle.
We are sorry for the lack of podcasts this month, but life gets in the way on occasion. We both have “real” jobs, which makes our scheduling insane. We love all of you, and please remember, if you’ve ever been in the show, or you listen to the show on the regular, you are not just listeners or subjects of interviews, you are real friends, hell, most of you are family to us.
We just want to thank you for your paitence during this time, and we are working to have so many people in the show.
This week’s Indie Spotlight Monday belongs to The Last. It’s an interesting film that chronicles a man’s last days on Earth. From the Indiegogo:
A terminally ill man spends his last days coping with death and struggles to undo his past sins. While headed to a remote location he stumbles upon a woman. The two become stranded hundreds of miles from civilization. Secrets and lies quickly force them to be suspicious of each other’s intentions. They soon discover that they are not alone. Something dark lives in the woods. Something not human and when it arrives there will be no survivors in its wake.
This movie is aimed for those who love The Evil Dead franchise. Check this one out, it looks like it could be a great one.
FEED THE BLACK , a short silent film by Klayton Dean, is an amazing almost psychedelic voyage into the other side when a young woman kills herself because of her overwhelming grief of her mother passing away..
The eerie, creepy music does drive the viewer to stay in their seat to give their full 100% attention to watch the film. It’s hard to look away with the music keeping you locked into watch this film.
The film starts off in bright colors before the girl dies and then after she wakes up after dying, the colors are more muted and very dreamlike quality, with overlapping occult and religious images that freak you out a bit as they flash in your face, to keep you off balance and unsure of what will happen next and you can almost feel the confusion of the girl as she travels deeper into this mysterious realm..
The scenery and locations around the remote areas of UK are beautiful and give the film even more ominous feeling to this unknown journey in death.
it is 32 mins of sadness, wonder, confusion, fear and mystery..
i recommend that you all watch this amazing work, it’s worth the time and you can see the incredible talent of a director who takes film making to a very different level!
