The Mullbury Project

Honestly I’m in love with anything that mixes horror and sci-fi; be it games, movies, books, tv series, cosplay chicks, you name it. Add to that a few elements of PA (post apocalyptic for the laymen) and I’m all over that shit. While surfing Youtube this morn for more obscure and less obscure horror trailers I stumbled across this interesting trailer by the guys who co-wrote Hitman Absolution (ya the game), Martin Brennan and Michael B. Jackson. I couldn’t really find to much information on The Mulbury Project other than a FB page and some trailers scattered here and there, but what I do know is that the trailer looks pretty cool and so do the concept pics. Slated for release sometime in 2013 (lets hope so), I’m watching it! The Mulbury Project on Facecrack.

The Gerber Syndrome. 2011.

The Gerber Syndrome. 2011.

“The Gerber’s Syndrome is an contagious viral disease that was discovered in Germany in 2008 and spread all over the world. It is extremely contagious, fast spreading, and deadly. This syndrome is very difficult to spot, because it’s like a normal dose of the flu, with all the subsequent symptoms that most of us are familiar with; but later, the virus affects the brain cells causing serious damage to the central nervous system. A TV crew is making a documentary about the disease and the way society is coping with it by documenting the stories of three people who are dealing with Gerber’s Syndrome: Melissa is a young girl that has been infected, Doctor Ricardi is the doctor who is following her and Luigi is a member of the CS, the security organization that has to deal with infected people. The TV crew follow the lives of this characters, becoming characters themselves since they are constantly in the action. We see how the syndrome progress in Melissa and the way her family and Doctor.”   Indastria Film.

Rec pretty much started my love of foreign found footage horror flicks. Most of them are pretty bad, but you get the odd decent entry (nothing is coming to mind at the moment). I actually ended up posting this after surfing Youtube in search of obscure horror trailers. There really isn’t much info on this film other than what can be gleaned from the trailer. A camera crew is following some type of disease (CDC type) control unit around some foreign country investigating the spread of a wierdly named virus, The Gerber Syndrome.
