Grindstone Acquires Screamfest Alum Matt Eskandari’s “Game of Assassins” (The Gauntlet)
If you missed the premiere at last year's Screamfest, Lionsgate will soon be bringing “Game of Assassins” (formerly titled “The Gauntlet”) your way.

PARIS– Grindstone Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to Matt Eskandari’s action/horror pic “Game of Assassins” (formerly titled “The Gauntlet”).
The action/horror film stars Bai Ling (“Crank”), Warren Kole (“The Following”) and Dustin Nguyen (“21 Jump St”).
What a wonderful evening we had at the FEARS & BEERS screening of Bride of Chucky with special guest Jennifer Tilly, Brad Dourif & Alexis Arquette, held at the sleek MGN Five Star Cinema in Glendale on April 24th.
Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home.
This article written by Lucas Shaw from The Wrap shows that good low budget horror films can make money. This is great news for the horror genre.
None of the year’s biggest films — not “Iron Man,” “Hunger Games” nor “The Hobbit” — offered as good a return on investment as “Insidious: Chapter 2″
Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season! Hope your holiday is filled with awesome horror movie watching. It's a great time to gather around and re-watch those holiday horror movies ranging from good to cheesy, Gremlins, Black Christmas, Silent Night Deadly Night, Sint (Saint, Rare Export), Jack Frost, Santa Slay, Christmas Evil and Don't Open Until Christmas.
So spike the egg nog, pop in a film and enjoy.
Remember not to feed your Gremlin after midnight....
