Be Careful What You Wish For: When Djinn's Go Bad

Djinn are quite the formidable creatures. They truly are the one supernatural beings that can be depicted as good, bad or evil. Based on Islamic mythology Djinn, Jinn or Genies can just as easily give with one hand and take away with the other. So be careful what you wish for! Long gone are the days of Barbara Eden in classic fantasy sitcom 'I Dream of Jeannie' or the zany shenanigans of the famous blue genie, voiced by the late Robin Williams, that featured in Disney's 1992 'Aladdin'. Over the past 15 years the horror genre has been busy making sure audiences know of the more malevolent side of these spiritual creatures.

Elmwood Productions to Bring us New Puppet Horror 'Head'

Writer and director Jon Bristol's new horror project 'HEAD' is a throwback to the 70's and 80's Grindhouse B-horror films with just one slight twist..its all done with puppets. And what's more is that the puppets are playing it straight! Bristol wants to hit several cliches that a lot of horror films already do but also making sure that the shocks and scares are still there. And you can still donate to their Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for post production, marketing, festival fees, etc. Principal photography is underway, and the hope is that the movie will be ready by the end of this year.
