THE BATTERY

SATURDAY 2 NOVEMBER

Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other's personalities. Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted. A bed, a girl, and a safe place to live. When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.

DARK MOUNTAIN

THURSDAY 7 NOVEMBER

Somewhere deep within Arizona’s Superstition Mountains lies the most famous lost gold mine in North American history - the Lost Dutchman Mine.  Its estimated worth is around 200 million dollars.  Since the turn of the twentieth century, thousands of people have scoured the mountains in search of it, hundreds have lost their lives in the process, but not a one has returned with an ounce of gold.  Legend has it the mine is cursed.     

In March of 2011, three Los Angeles filmmakers set out to find the mine and document their entire process.  They never made it out of the Superstitions.  Eight months later, their camera and cell phones were recovered along the western edge of LaBarge Canyon.  No sign of the filmmakers themselves has been found to date.  Dark Mountain is the chilling reconstruction from their footage of what are believed to be their last days.  Inspired by actual events.

Directed by Tara Anaïse
With Sage Howard, Andrew Simpson, Shelby Stehlin

BLOODY PARCHMENT ANTHOLOGY RELEASED
Bloody ParchmentWith the next Bloody Parchment live fiction reading event again set to kick off the South African HORRORFEST-ivities in the last week of October, here's some more good news:

eKhaya, the digital imprint of Random House Struik, is delighted to announce the publication of Bloody Parchment: Hidden Things, Lost and Other Stories. 

Click Here to purchase your copy at Amazon

Bloody Parchment is the literary component of the annual South African HorrorFest held in Cape Town, South Africa, each October. The Bloody Parchment short story competition was established in 2010. Edited by prolific Cape Town writer and editor Nerine Dorman, this Bloody Parchment collection of the stories from the 2011 short story submissions, include Brett Bruton, Jenny Robson, Mico Pisanti, Lee Mather, Stacey Larner, Toby Bennett, SL Schmitz, Benjamin Knox, Austin Malone and Joan De La Haye. The authors of the collection represent a fine international mix of writers from South Africa, the United States, the United Kingdom, Botswana and Australia.

With the success of films like District 9 and Lauren Beukes’s novel Zoo City, the burgeoning South African genre scene is coming to hungry international attention. eKhaya believes that the Bloody Parchment short story competition is the ideal hothouse to nurture new international genre voices and to encourage cross-pollination between emerging South African and overseas talent, and ultimately develop and encourage indigenous horror stories that appeal to a broad international market.

Bloody Parchment is the sort of cutting-edge book eKhaya is looking to publish in its savvy, electronic format and we look forward to a productive association with the South African HorrorFest.

Bloody Parchment is now available at a recommended retail price of just R70. It will be available as a PDF and ePUB from South African online retailers Kalahari.net and Exclus1ves.com, and from Amazon.com internationally.

Print copies of Vol 2 will be ready for the 2012 HorrorFest!
