All posts for the month March, 2012

We thought long and hard about who we should name our King of Horror. There are hundreds, if not thousands of men out there working within the horror genre who are not getting the credit they deserve. Well we looked over as many as we could, from various sources and working in different areas. Some we decided were not working hard enough and only opted in and out of our brilliant genre on a casual basis. Others we believed to be far too well-known! The idea of the feature is to create awareness of upcoming horror talents that are working hard to bring horror to the masses.

So without further ado, bow before your king of horror!

Bill is an actor who has worked on over 70 projects in the last four years – That’s more than what some Hollywood ‘stars’ can claim in their lifetime!

He started performing back in school when he was seen as the ‘unpopular fat kid’ He found that by doing impersonations of teachers and the Principal to amuse his tormentors, he would generally avoid a beating! Since then he has gone from strength to strength starring in countless movies, television shows, commercials, theater productions, music videos, video games, internet web series and even working as a voice over artist.

But what makes him a horror star? and more importantly – What gives him that edge which pushes him past your average horror actor?

Well we could tell you in so many words, or we could just show you.

How awesome is that! With his bizarre torso and creepy features, Bill has no problem standing out amongst other ‘ordinary’ horror actors. His image alone is starting to gain recognition, with him being branded “that guy with the creepy torso”

He could quite easily go far in the world of horror just on his image alone. But guess what – He’s a terrific actor too! Taking to the role of creepy stalker like a fish to water, Bill has starred in many horror movies and continues to make more. At this moment he is shooting back to back films – His dedication is unequalled!

Now we know you like to see proof (would we lie to you?!) And of course we are more than able to provide.

So check out these film clips of Bill in action.

I should have really told you not to watch if you have an aversion to blood/gore or if you are of a nervous disposition. But if that’s the case why the hell are you here? We only cater for the REAL horror fans!

Right now back to Bill…

Now I bet after you’ve seen that you would run a mile around him if you encountered him in the street. But that is just a testament to his amazing acting. In real life – You couldn’t meet a nicer guy! To quote his IMDB Page ‘he is the polar opposite of his volatile on-screen persona and is a frequent motivational speaker in schools and churches.’ Can you believe it? I know school would have been a lot more interesting if we had Bill come in and talk to us instead of some random businessman or a flock of nuns…

It goes without saying that Bill Oberst is The Nice Guy of Horror!

Now back to his horror talents…

As mentioned earlier Bill has worked on tons of horror films and continues to do so as you read this. One notable movie (which we can’t wait to see) is Abraham Lincoln Vs Zombies

So why did we choose Bill as The King of Horror? Well let’s see. There’s his unique horror image, the array of horror films he has starred in, the horror projects he continues to work on, and his unwavering dedication to his role as an actor. And to top it all off – He’s a great, down to earth guy. He doesn’t expect to be where he is now, he knows he has had to work hard and continue to work hard if he is going to progress to bigger, better things.

It’s only a matter of time before he takes the lead in a major, high-budget flick that will catapult him to worldwide fame and stardom. But before then, there’s plenty of time for him to star in some pretty kick ass movies along the way! Watch out for his future projects, or why not check out the ones he has done in the past? All info is on his IMDB page.

Remember we will post an interview with Bill in the next few days so keep an eye out for that.

I think you will agree that Bill Oberst Jr. definitely deserves to be this year’s King of Horror!

 

In the next few days we will be announcing our King and Queen of Horror!

The title is given to the individuals who we believe are making a substantial difference in the world of horror, whether through film-making, writing, drawing/painting, acting – just someone who stands out above the rest.

We’ll be posting two features on the 28th March – One announcing the King, the other announcing the Queen. We will then be posting an interview with each of our newly crowned monarchs in the following days.

Stay tuned – I’m sure you will be happy with our choice!

Want to hear about another great horror writer?

Well we’ve got one for you; Jimmy Pudge!

Jimmy is a published author with his second novel due out soon, but more importantly – Jimmy is hilarious! Now that is something we admire here at Erebus Horror. Many horror writers can be dark, moody and depressing (hey it works!) but every once in a while, the likes of Jimmy Pudge comes along and automatically you crack a smile. Now ordinarily we tell you a bit about the author and what not, but not today…  Today Jimmy himself is going to tell you in his own words what he’s about.

Jimmy James “M.F.” Pudge was born into this world on 6-9-1979 in a truck stop toilet at a TA Travel Center in the backwoods of South Georgia. An honest and conscientious man, Jimmy served several prison sentences because he refused to give in to the federal laws that impose independent spirits’ rights to be entrepreneurs.  An expert in the art of pruno, shank construction, and paper dart blow guns, Jimmy briefly served as a leader in his dorm room before being released early for good behavior.

He now serves as a gourmet chef in the fast food industry and writes during his off time. He is the father of possibly four little girls, two of which he pays child support for. Jimmy briefly considered a run for political office before discovering felons were ineligible to participate in the democratic process.

When he’s not working or visiting his probation officer, you can find Jimmy James on Facebook. His favorite color is brown. His favorite TV show is Little House on the Prairie. He thinks Nelly Olson is a scumbag.

And I think that’s enough said! Check out the link below to purchase Jimmy’s book and see what all the fuss is about – Trust us, it will be a sound investment!
