Do to numerous questions concerning what will cover and what we won’t, we have decided to implement a FAQ page. This will hopefully answer any questions you may have. This will be added to as the need arises.
Will you review my film?
There are certain guidelines we follow before accepting a film.
- Budget is key. We will not review any film below the $2 Mil. Budget line. Why? Quality. There is really no other way to put it. Do you have any recognizable talent in front of or behind the camera? Something that people will be interested in.
- Do you have a distribution deal? If we accept the film for review and give it an unfavorable one, it may hurt your ability to get distribution. Something to bear in mind.
- Does your film have a social Media following? Will anyone read a review if we take the time to post it? That’s what it boils down to.
Will you support my crowdfunding endeavor?
- Most larger sites will not support your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdfunding project. Why? There is a lot of legal gray area but simply put, there is nothing in it for us. If we help find the money, this makes us essentially, Executive Producers, but there is no money coming our way.
- The other issue is interest. Sites generate money through post traffic. There is simply not enough traffic generated by crowdfunding projects so it makes little business sense to spend the time writing up and posting about it.
- Lastly, many of these projects never see the light of day.
Now. Before you say you’ve seen crowd funding projects here, yes, you have. We of course support the Soska twins, Rob Zombie, and Ama Lea, among others. They have a huge following and generate much interest. In short, they have name value.
That is just the hard reality of running a site. There are exceptions, but very few.
If I send you a press release, will you run it?
We get several press releases a day. Each is evaluated for possible interest and whether it falls into the categories of what we do. If we don’t run it, it was simply not a good fit for us.
I notice that you are connected with other large horror sites (Fangoria, Shock Till You Drop, etc.) Will you introduce my project to them for coverage?
Every now and again, we receive a request to shepherd a film to one of our fellow sites that we are affiliated with. It is unreasonable, and a bit insulting to receive such a request (though I applaud their gumption). If you have contacted them and had no response, chances are that they felt that this was not a good fit for them. They did most likely see you email though. We will not make the introduction for you.
