“Headless” is coming…

If you are in the Bloomington Indiana area the feature film “Headless” is coming your way:

World Premiere Screening
Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 7:00PM

at Buskirk-Chumley Theater
114 E. Kirkwood Ave
Bloomington, IN 47408

must be 18 or older to attend, IDs will be checked at the door

In this “lost slasher film from 1978,” a masked killer wages an unrelenting spree of murder, cannibalism, and necrophilia. But when his tortured past comes back to haunt him, he plunges to even greater depths of madness and depravity, consuming the lives of a young woman and those she holds dear.

Headless is the latest feature from the creators of Found, winner of 18 best picture awards and an official selection at more than 40 film festivals around the world. Headless is a spin-off of Found’s most controversial sequence, a brutally horrific ‘movie within a movie’ that has been censored in the UK and Germany, and banned–not once, but twice–in Australia. Now, that infamous sequence has been expanded into a full-length feature film for gore hounds, lovers of exploitation movies, and hardcore horror fans.

Headless was filmed entirely in Indiana by a Bloomington-based team, featuring makeup and special effects from The Clockwerk Creature Company and music by Magician Johnson and Andy D. Directed by Arthur Cullipher, written by Nathan Erdel , produced by Kara Erdel and Scott Schirmer. Starring Shane Beasley, Kelsey Carlisle, Ellie Church, Dave Parker, Kaden Miller, Brian Williams, Jennifer Lee, Haley Madison, Matt Keeley, Emily McGee, Jessica Schroeder, Ben Monticue, and Olivia Arnold.

The film screening (90 minutes) will be followed by Q&A with the cast and crew (30 minutes).

Director Chris Sun writing Ed Gein insprired novel

Director Chris Sun (Daddy’s Little Girl, Charlie’s Farm) is in the process of  writing an Ed Gein insprired novel.

24723122Per Chris Sun: “Slaughter FX busy building new Ed Gein props. With my new book well underway the team at Slaughter FX are busy making props to suit it’s release. Ed Gein Inspired props and furniture is one of our specialties and Kayla and Wade have been super busy getting dead shit made.

Kayla is currently working on a true one of a kind Ed Gein skinned chair Wade has just finished the Spine Lamp.”

Props being made for the book are available for viewing at:

Ed” By Chris Sun

Synopsis: Ed Gein was like a horrific road accident, a man whose crimes were so depraved and macabre you just couldn’t look away. He became the classic horror icon for such fictional characters as Norman Bates, Leatherface and Buffalo Bill. Regardless of the notoriety, nobody would ever really understand Gein like Larry.

Ed was an artist and Larry understood what inspired him. Larry saw the same thing when he looked at human skin, the seductive promise of screaming and begging, the raw unadulterated feeling of power. Unlike Ed Gein who robbed graves for his prize, Larry took pleasure in a warm, living body bleeding into his hands. He took all that pain and terror and turned it into beauty. Just like Ed, Larry took a fucked up world and made it something more.

Nobody could stop him, he held all the power. It didn’t matter if you were man, woman, young, old, pretty, ugly, skinny or fat. If you were living and breathing, you were potential art.

To celebrate TOETAG turning 13, they present a series of vignettes entitled, “The Sickness


This series follows Shawn Vires, a TOETAG Sicko from Ohio, whose curiosity of finding the sickest movies leads him to the TOETAG website. From his first viewing Shawn becomes infected and “The Sickness” spreads, pumping black blood through his veins. The more he experiences the TOETAG pictures, merchandise and culture the sicker he becomes.

For the first “The Sickness “ series TOETAG has joined forces with James Harland Lockhart as the Director and Editor, as well as Make-up Artist, Autumn Cook. These two are no strangers to the TOETAG SICKNESS. James was one of the editors on Murder Collection v.1 (2009) along with various other projects. Autumn first got bloody with us joining TOETAG’s Gore-Master, Jerami Cruise to create make-up EFX for Sella Turcica (2010).

The Sickness” is not a dramatization. Experience it.
