Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Festival winning Killer Toy Robot Horror short AUGUSTINE is now available to watch online (see below). Starring actors from BREAKING BAD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY, the 8 minute Horror/comedy short won best short at Calgary Horror Con and was nominated for best international short and best short screenplay at Australia’s Monster Fest and will soon show at the South Texas Underground Film Festival.
AUGUSTINE stars AMERICAN HORROR STORY alum Shelby Young and Reid Ewing (FRIGHT NIGHT, MODERN FAMILY) along with David Ury (BREAKING BAD, Rob Zombie’s 31) and Tahmus Rounds (THE CRAZIES, TRUE BLOOD).
"In AUGUSTINE, a group of kid's visit the cabin of a recently deceased toy maker to find that his toys are still very much alive."
Co-Creator David Ury describes AUGUSTINE as “A tongue in cheek homage to the classic 80’s horror films we grew up watching.” The real stars of the film are a group of terrifying homemade toy robots designed by producer/writer/director Tahmus Rounds.
The film was co-directed by David Neptune and actor/writer David Ury. AUGUSTINE began production in 2012 but required intensive work in post production and was not released to festivals until the fall of 2014. “We approached this project as a kind of alternative to film school. Instead of studying in a classroom we just decided to make a film. We are thrilled at the great reception it’s gotten at festivals so far.”
Since making AUGUSTINE, the directing team has gone on to make ground breaking viral videos such as “What Kind of Asian Are You?” with over 8 million hits on Youtube, and “But We’re Speaking Japanese” with over 1 million views. They are currently at work on a new comedic television series and a Horror feature.
