Slasher Shorts: Dream Seekers Productions – The Beast & Daniel

It’s been awhile since Gores Truly has given love to short filmmakers. And thanks to Dream Seekers Productions we now have another favorite short filmmaker — Peter Dukes. Check out two of his short films below and head over to the official Facebook and website and follow his latest projects.

The Beast

Starring: Bill Oberst Jr,, Peter Le Bas, and Alexander Le Bas

Every parent struggles with the changes their teenagers go through. But what if instead of simply facing the trials that come with puberty, you had to deal with a child that was also turned? And how far would you go to save your him? Or youself? The Beast, a short directed by Peter Dukes, seeks to anwser that question.

Bill Oberst plays Michael, a father whose son Jacob is about to change into something very..very un-human. When your own flesh and blood feasts on the flesh and blood of others where does is the line between being a good parents and a good human drawn?

For a film shot in a single day on a budget of $700 The Beast is rather impressive. The dark hues of the film and simple yet effective scoring add something haunting to the film. And where it lacks to deliver in special effects (namely the werewolf) it more than makes up for it in atmosphere.

Daniel

In another short directed by Peter Dukes, a young boy Daniel is seen hiding in a closet from intruders. As the potentially dangerous men search for him eagerly, passing the corpse of his mother and his very distraught and restrained father, we find out that perhaps maybe Daniel shouldn’t be the one hiding after all.

It isn’t easy to tell a story in less than three minutes. Without time to develop characters and back stories it’s almost impossible to tell a tale that can surprise viewers. However, Daniel managed to achieve this. The slow panning of the camera and interesting angles all help play into the big reveal on why Daniel was really hiding. Although the acting isn’t phenomenal, the storytelling is quite clever.

Kickstarting Horror: Iron Sky – The Coming Race (2015)

iron-sky-the-coming-race

Fan of Iron Sky? Well apparently you aren’t the only one. As a matter of fact people loved it so much a group of guys decided to make their own sequel. With less than a week left to make Iron Sky 2 happen, check out the trailer above (I mean c’mon. Hitler on a dinosaur? How terribly awesome is that?) and head over to their Indiegogo to show them some support!

IndieGogo – Iron Sky:  The Coming Race 

Summary:

Iron Sky The Coming Race is an independent sequel to the 2012 cult hit Iron Sky. It will take place twenty years after the first film and introduce some new characters as well as bring back old friends (and enemies). This time the story will take our heroes from the Iron Sky into the Hollow Earth.

Just like Iron Sky, The Coming Race will be inspired by pulp science fiction of the early 20th Century. There will be crazy concepts and an incredible visual world of dinosaurs and aliens. This time however the focus will be more on adventure and discovery. Imagine Iron Sky meeting Indiana Jones on a safari in Jurassic Park.

Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war, but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity – or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs.
