Need a good soundtrack for your Halloween? Read on about Obscuri..

It's a Wednesday night and I'm in a town not too far from San Antonio.  It's a good hour jaunt from Austin (which I've called home over the last 3 years) but I made the trip to hang out with my good friend and official Gore Noir staff photographer, Obscuri.  Obscuri has been creating amazing  ambient horror music lately and I couldn't wait to hear some of the tracks.  We are sitting in his new "Doom Room" surrounded by his medical collection, listening to some of the music that he's been working on.  Each track he starts up has it's own feel and aesthetic to it.  Each brings it's own imagery to mind and as we listen I'm talking to Obscuri, explaining the visuals that are popping into my mind as the music plays.  It also helps to set the tone as the real human skulls are staring back at us in the Doom Room and the wet specimens lay in their jars.  All of this helped fuel the creativity that Obscuri's music was now invoking.

Obscuri is talking about some of the haunts and bands that he has already started working for and creating his ambient tracks for.  The soundscapes he creates definitely lend themselves to an overall feeling that would work well in a haunted house.  Once we've crawled our way through his project tracks we decided to mess around and create a new track on the spot.  It was interesting being able to watch the creation process and give input to help mold the soundscape.  The piece ended up having a very 70's satanic slasher's house feel to it.  I'll link you to it and more of his music below (the name of the track is "Gates to Hell".  If you have yet to hear any of Obscuri's work definitely check it out and hire him for your movies, your haunt, your batmitzva or whatever you need dark ominous music for.  Enjoy!  (Click here to go to the full soundtrack site for Obscuri)

Last season ended off on what has to be one of the strangest season finale/cliffhangers that I've ever seen on a series..  I was literally like..  WTF?!?  That just happened?!?  For those of you that have seen season 2 you know what I mean..  My brain melted out of my ears..  Eyeballs packed up and took a vacation..  They said..  "NAWP!  I'm out..  What the hell was that?!?"  So I have no idea how they are going to continue on from there..  Well they are definitely saying that season 3 is the LAST SEASON..  THE FINAL CHAPTER.   So we will be learning a lot about the characters..  ALL WILL BE REVEALED!  Here's to some skin being revealed..  Oh and blood and guts too..  I think we are going to see lots of that..  High grade wood chippers maybe?

Soska Sister's Hellevator Premieres Wed Oct 21st on GSN!!

I know everyone else is following the Soska Sisters on their social media so you already know about the gameshow they're coming out with on the Game Show Network right?  RIGHT?!?  Well if you've been living under a rock here's the lowdown..  The gameshow is called Hellevator and it premieres this Wednesday Oct 21st 8/7c on Game Show Network.  This is a terrifying new gameshow from Blumhouse, and hosted by our favorite Twisted Twins The Soska Sisters.

The show places contestants in a warehouse where they then are guided into the Hellevator.  The Hellevator takes them to the different floors that they will get asked to go through devious challenges.  Each challenge will test the limits of the contestants fears to see if they have what it takes to win the money.  I was able to watch the first 10 minutes of the show on Yahoo HERE

I saw a few sites attempting to say that the horror crowd would not like Hellevator, that it was more for the mainstream crowd..  But I would beg to differ.  Just from the first 10 minutes you can see that it definitely brings the blood..  And I have no doubts that the Twisted Twins will make this gameshow into a must watch.  I was a huge fan of American Mary and I watch it all the time.  Pretty amazing stuff.  Well ladies if your name is attached to it you'll have a viewer in me.  Keep being awesome!  Oh! And we've also got a quick clip for you below!  Enjoy!
