     This is an art website by my friend Jasmine Upton. I had the privilege of working with her at Nightfall at Old Tucson. She is a dedicated scarer, but I also recently found out that she's an amazing artist as well. Here is what she has to say about her website.

     I make connections with mother nature and the human body because they're both very beautiful. I've been doing art since I was about 15, and now I run my own shop as an 18-year-old Tucson artist. I want my art to influence people to be unique and to be themselves because the world needs individuality and creativity. Some of the money I make off of it goes to breast cancer foundations, and also toward saving local pollinators (bees). My site is also really neat because it's for all artists to get their stuff out. Redbubble is an amazing site for small artists and they are high quality producers. I really love them, and I love that they're here for the artists!

     You can find her art at: Lilcactibabe  I hope that you find her art as beautiful as I do. As a matter of fact, I'm always looking for local talent to commission book covers. I will be asking Jasmine to paint a unique cover for one of my upcoming books. Please check out her site!

      I recently started working at a local haunted attraction called Ravenhearse. It is one of the only haunted attractions in the United States that is open year-round. It's a unique haunted experience because we offer different tours that are designed to accomodate all ages and different scare levels. The Green Tour is designed for children of any age. There are no scares at all. It's fun and educational. It is also designed to accomodate children with special needs. The Yellow Tour is for children who are 7 years or older. The tour takes place in the dark. There are no scares. The Red Tour is not recommended for children under the age of 12. This tour also takes place in the dark. There is disturbing content and it is terrifying. Finally, there is the Dark Tour that is for children 12 years or older. Fact is stranger than fiction. It is a guided tour of the haunt, in the dark, which focuses on the haunted artifacts that we have. There is disturbing content.

     The haunt is open from 6pm to 9pm on Thursdays, and 5pm to 10pm Friday through Sunday. We are closed Monday through Wednesday. Admission costs $5 per person, or two wooden nickels, or a Trail Dust Town attractions wristband, which is good for one visit to the haunt. Children under 3 get in for free. We are located in Trail Dust Town, located at 6541 E. Tanque Verde Rd. Suite 27, Tucson, Arizona 85715. For more information, you can contact us at (520) 370-5472. You can also look us up on Facebook and Twitter. Our website is Ravenhearse website. Come on over for a ghoulishly fun time!

     Here is a music video for the song, Not As Wicked As You, by the band, Mission Creeps. Not As Wicked As You. It was created by H. Barragan Jr. at Red Bennie Digital. It features James Arr, Miss Frankie Stein, George Palenzuela, Greivsley RavenHearse, and crew. It was filmed on location at Trail Dust Town in Tucson, Arizona in September 2016.

Have you seen the short horror film KLAGGER? If you haven't and still consider yourself a TRUE independent horror fan, YOU SHOULD! Why is that, you ask? KLAGGER screened at dozens of film festivals and conventions throughout the US and Europe for three solid years. The filmmakers (Casey & Gene Crow) are now expanding the short film into a 90 minute feature, prompted by an ever-growing outpour of fan enthusiasm.

KLAGGER is a grungy, industrial horror film about a man named Joseph Klagger who was killed in a factory explosion back in the 1970's. His body was physically destroyed in a way that made recovery an impossible task. As a result, the factory was closed down, leaving KLAGGER's remains entombed there for decades. In the feature film version of KLAGGER, a demolition team arrives to implode the old building with explosives and awakens Joseph's spirit from the dead! KLAGGER will be a serious, action-packed horror movie like NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN crossed with NEAR DARK. Rural, dramatically intense, and bloody as hell!

So far, Casey and Gene have received tremendous support from the horror community by launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund KLAGGER into feature film territory. The campaign has achieved 60% of its funding goal currently. "Horror fans are a die-hard group of people," says Casey Crow, the film's director. "We wouldn't have this level of success without their support. It's greatly appreciated!"

If you love well-made horror films, this is THE ONE to get on board with! To find out more on how you can become part of the KLAGGER project, hit up Joseph Klagger on Facebook (yes, he has a Facebook page) OR go directly to the Kickstarter campaign Klagger Kickstarter and join The Crow Brothers in making a cool horror movie!
