NIGHT OF THE PUNKS: Horror Punkers vs. Bloodthirsty Hell Beasts!!! Watch Now for FREE.

Do you like Return of the Living Dead? Night of the Demons? Evil Dead? Maybe From Dusk Til Dawn? Fresh off the festival circuit after receiving accolades, awards and becoming an official selection of over 25 fests, I give you… NIGHT OF THE PUNKS!!! It’s a short film that will take up 19 minutes of your time and make you a happy horror fan. The film  features rippin’ punk riffs embedded in a horror comedy. Do you miss the Dead Boys? The Cramps? Maybe you fantasize about being killed, but you’re not Linnea Quigley, and there aren’t any old men around.  It’s punks versus bloodthirsty monsters from Hell (and not zombies in this one)! Best part for you is that it’s on YouTube. It’s free, and it’s ready, willing and able to receive your support as a fan of good horror.

To wet your pallet, here’s the synopsis from the fillmmakers:

In Night of the Punks, small town punk rockers The Brain Deads have their first out of town show, but there are a few problems: the venue is deserted, the promoter is a creep, their bassist has gone missing and the only kids in the audience turn out to be bloodthirsty punk rockers from Hell.

Who knows? With the proper support maybe we could see a feature length film made out of Night of the Punks. One can hope that the horror filmmakers out there can get back to making films the way we like em: straight out the 80′s.  Let’s wish filmmaker Dan Riesser the best of luck on his first feature length film, Stomping Ground, a scary comedy about love and Bigfoot.

So you can check out their website HERE. You can follow them on FaceBook HERE, and just below this you can watch the short film NIGHT OF THE PUNKS!!!

Music by Murderland. Make sure to follow that link back to their MySpace page and enjoy some amazing tunes. Songs include I Created a Monster, Transylvania Vacation and 13 Jack O’ Lanterns. Misfits punk with an exceptionally upbeat edge and some fun organs (all horror rock needs an organ).

Maybe our next feature should be on these guys. Let us know what you think of these fellas (and the rather amazing poster for one of their shows).

About Jimmy Terror

Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog, Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived "Horrorabilly" band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.
