Shadows of Hidden Hill (Web Series)

Youtube is a wonderful thing. I mean let’s be honest, it is definitely oversaturated with pointless garbage, but at the same time it has given indie video producers a platform to go solo and showcase their chops.

Which brings me to our topic of the night, the new web series “Shadows of Hidden Hill”.


Shadows of Hidden Hill is a Horror/Supernatural web series produced by GripWrite Productions.


I came across the channel a few months back when it was advertised by an acquaintance of mine Peter Herold, who stars in the first episode as a demented mortician who is trying to talk his son into following out the show’s tag line “Take the head and silence the dead”. I won’t go into too much detail about the plot line because I don’t want to be that guy who spoils shit.



What I do want to talk about is the vibes.


This isn’t just another run of the mill youtube series made by amature enthusiasts. The minds behind Hidden Hill know what they are doing both technically, and viscerally. We are talking about great production value in the ways of cinematography, narrative, setting, and sound design among other aspects. You can see the process in their short behind the scenes videos (I love watching behind the scenes videos).


As far as comparisons go, I get some classic Carpenter feels, some Evil Dead vibes, and even some Twin Peaks vibes in there (probably because I am obsessed with the reboot on showtime).


Bottom line is that I really enjoy what I am seeing, and each short episode (between 6-10 minutes in length) leaves me wanting more. This is a show horror fans will want to keep an eye on, the potential here is huge.


So far there are two episodes (which are embedded below)

GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM (Now Showing!)

TUNNEL TO THE UNDERGROUND & CRIMSON’S CORONER PRESENTS

GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM

Ladies and Gents, we present to you GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM.

Two drug addicts in search of their next fix unintentionally stumble upon a strange experimental liquid that alters reality and brings the EVIL out of people.

This movie was written and directed by Tunnel to the Underground’s very own Jay Crimson (noclassjay3x) who writes Crimson’s Coroner, and was edited by me (justinthomassquires).

Jay approached me at the beginning of the summer (2013) with a movie he had filmed back in 2006 and 2007. He had a very rough edit of the movie and wanted to re edit and reshape the entire thing. After review of his rough cut I gladly jumped on board.

I began heavy post production at the end of the summer and worked into late October. After we finished post production we had three local showings where the movie was received well (Special thanks to Bryan Keefe for being our projectionist). 

Now we are happy to share this movie with the entire world.

GREEN HELL: THE ONLINE PREMIERE!

greenhell

Tunnel to the Underground and CRIMSON’S CORONER will be hosting the online premiere of GREEN HELL: A JAY CRIMSON FILM.

So what the fuck is GREEN HELL anyway?

Well, it’s a drugged out horror flick made to play like a damaged VHS tape.

Jay Crimson (who writes a column on this blog called Crimson’s Coroner) contacted me early this summer and asked me if I wanted to edit this horror film he had been sitting on since 2006-07. Upon review of his rough cut I hopped on board. We wrapped up post production by Halloween and had our first local premiere, followed by two others.

We now would like to share this thing with the world (for a moment in time at least)

Thus we will be hosting the video on youtube and letting it stream for a week.

You will be finding the main page here on the blog November 24th, and the movie will stream until the 30th.

You can join the official facebook event page HERE to keep updated. Or just keep checking back at the blog.

In the mean time. CHECK OUT THE TRAILER!
